    At least two cats have been sealed into buckets and abandoned near a Manhattan animal shelter — both of which might have been taken away with the trash if staff hadn’t noticed them, the organization says.

    Staff members at Animal Haven Shelter, a SoHo-based nonprofit, were shocked Thursday when staff members found a cat sealed into a bucket that had been placed near a public trash can, the organization said in an Instagram post.

    Staff found another cat sealed inside a bucket back in November. The pail was placed next to the back door of the shelter's building, Animal Haven said in another post.

    “Staff isn’t left speechless that often anymore, but when morning kennel went to move what appeared to be just an empty bucket on the side of our building near the back door, they were shocked to see a tiny eye looking back up at them,” the shelter wrote after the first incident in November.

    “Yes, believe it or not but someone left an innocent cat in a bucket outside our door overnight," the shelter added. 

    The cat abandoned in November, dubbed Sage, was ultimately “safe and sound” after the ordeal. The cat found last week, however, is “in bad shape and, needless to say, is terrified,” Animal Haven said.

    The shelter posted surveillance video to Instagram after the Thursday incident and said it shows a man placing the bucket by the trash before walking off down the sidewalk.

    The shelter is now asking passersby to keep an eye out for buckets or containers that could contain cats.

    “We have contacted the police, but we’re asking that everyone in the vicinity of our shelter in SoHo PLEASE keep your eyes out for any suspicious buckets or containers like the ones in these photos!” the shelter wrote.

    “If anyone recognizes the person in this video, contact us immediately. And if you are ever desperate to surrender an animal, please reach out to us directly,” it added.

    John Wall had 40 points and 14 assists as the Washington Wizards cast a spell over the Los Angeles Lakers, 128-110, on Sunday night at Capital One Arena.

    Wall dominated the jet-lagged Lakers, joining Gilbert Arenas as the only other Wizards player to have 25 or more points and five or more assists in the first half. 

    "I know all the Lakers fans out there probably was upset," Wall told the media after witnessing a large number of fans in D.C. wearing Lakers jerseys.

    Washington scored 71 points, tied for the most allowed by the Lakers in a half this season, as they led by 20 at the break. 

    Los Angeles simply couldn't muster the strength and energy to mount the comeback in the second half, waving the white flag by sitting superstar LeBron James with over seven minutes left in the game.

    James struggled from the field on the second night of a back-to-back, shooting 5-of-16 from the field for just 13 points and six rebounds. 

    "We're a team that's built on energy and depth," James told reporters after the loss. "We didn't have either tonight."

    It was only 24 hours earlier that the Lakers made history when both James and Lonzo Ball recorded triple-doubles in a blowout win over the Charlotte Hornets. However, a day later it was Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who led the Lakers with a team-high 25 points off the bench. 

    Four different players on the Wizards scored 20 or more points with Bradley Beal scoring 25, and Sam Dekker and Jeff Green each chipping in 20 apiece.

    "When he gets going," Dekker told reporters of Wall, "it really sets the tone for us."

    But none of them were better than Wall, who has had to endure an up and down season so far, but it all came together in front of the King and his royal court. 

    Wall did it all on Sunday night, attacked the rim, played defense, no-look passes, through-the-leg assists, and a dramatic step-back buzzer beater.

    Notes and Next

    The Wizards were shorthanded as Dwight Howard was out after undergoing back surgery as was starting forward Otto Porter Jr. Aditionally, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers also were unavailable after being traded to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

    JaVale McGee missed the game with flu-like symptoms. The Lakers will complete their four-game road trip in Brooklyn on Tuesday against the Nets.

    One of the biggest factors in determining whether a person released from prison will avoid going back is employment. Finding work, however, can be tough, especially for those who lack the skills required in a typical office job.

    Vince Reyes of San Bernardino faced these challenges after he completed an 8-year sentence for intent to distribute. He refers to his time in prison as "college," because he spent so much time studying subjects like law and finance. But he still found it impossible to get a job after he was released.

    "I actually applied to all these brokerage places, and they didn't hire me because I had a felony," he said.

    When he wasn't studying in prison, Reyes spent his time working out. At the time, he had no idea he was actually training for his future profession. A friendship forged over pull-ups in a federal penitentiary in Ohio would be the connection he needed to find his career path.

    The friend connected Reyes with A Second U Foundation, an organization that recruits, educates and provides job placement for formerly incarcerated men and women as personal trainers. Reyes enrolled in a six-week boot camp that combines barbells and business concepts to help prepare former felons to work in the fitness industry.

    Hector Guadalupe founded A Second U after he established a successful career as a personal trainer, following a 10-year sentence for drug trafficking.

    "I'm proud of how I was able to change my life, change my mindset and kind of step outside the box to help others," he said. "I fight to get these men and women employed."

    For Guadalupe, staffing former felons as personal trainers was a no-brainer.

    "If you spent 5 to 10 to 15 years working out the entire time, I figure you should give it a shot," he said.

    A Second U now has more than 135 graduates working in gyms all across the country. The organization seeks out candidates with the right combination of physical fitness and mental determination.

    "They're eager to live life," said trainer Rickey Burton. "They're eager to basically make up for everything that they missed while they were gone but now it's to do things different, bigger, better."

    Reyes capitalized on his training and is now co-owner of Downtown Fit Camp in San Bernardino. Since his incarceration, he has built a career and a family. He has also developed a philosophy, which can be found painted on the wall of his gym.

    "Be bigger than your excuses," he said. "You gotta be bigger than that."

    A patient on his way to Temecula Valley Hospital allegedly got out of his restraints and stole an ambulance Sunday, leading police on a pursuit on the 15 Freeway from the Lake Elsinore area up the 15 Freeway before a foot-chase finish in Hesperia, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The ambulance driver originally reported the stolen vehicle on a 911 call around 3:35 p.m, and the driver is believed to have stopped at a gas station to buy cigarettes before police located the vehicle and began the bizarre chase.

    Eliana Moreno and Newschopper Bravo were over the police pursuit at approximately 4:15 p.m on the 15 Freeway northbound. A short time later, the vehicle passed the 210 Freeway and Rancho Cucamunga area but stayed on the 15 Freeway northbound through the Cajon Pass.

    The vehicle pursuit concluded near the intersection of Mesa Street and Mariposa road on the 15 Freeway in Hesperia when the pursuit suspect abruptly pulled over without putting the vehicle in park.

    A shirtless and shoeless man exited the ambulance and proceeded to run into the undeveloped land with an officer chasing on foot. After a lenghty foot pursuit where both the suspect and the chasing officer appeared to be out of breath and began walking at times, an officer from the CHP helicopter exited his helicopter and helped make the arrest before 5 p.m.

    A smash-and-grab burglary crew ransacked a Beverly Grove business, grabbing clothes, bags and other items in an overnight heist.

    The crime was reported early Monday at the site of an Amuze.com warehouse sale, a pop-up event in the 100 block of North Robertson Boulevard. At about 3 a.m., witnesses reported 10 masked people who got out of four separate cars, then smashed the building's front windows.

    Once inside, the thieves grabbed as much merchandise as they could in about five minutes, according to witnesses.

    The members only sale featured items from Gucci, Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin and other high-end designers.

    No arrests were reported early Monday.

    The most powerful tool available to Democrats taking control of the House next month, the subpoena, is being held in reserve as they build their strategy to investigate the Trump administration, congressional officials in the party involved in decision-making told NBC News.

    Subpoena power is hardly a magic wand, according to top lawmakers, aides and former officials, and key committees are said to be planning a more deliberate approach starting with targeted requests for information from Trump officials.

    "You have to pick your targets. You have to prioritize and focus on the ones you really need, and where you can win public approval," said Irvin Nathan, House Democrats' top lawyer last time they controlled the chamber.

    While progressive activists are eager for a showdown with President Donald Trump, some Democrats are looking for places they can cooperate with him on legislation.

    Coming across a gingerbread house, as in a single, and singular, structure that encompasses the enchantment, whimsy, and candy-obsessiveness of the season?

    It isn't an uncommon event, especially if you're popping by a friend's kitchen or your child's schoolroom during the second half of December.

    But finding a veritable neighborhood of such houses, and award winners at that, is rather a harder task, unless you're visiting the Discovery Cube in Santa Ana or the Discovery Cube in Los Angeles.

    For the science-focused museum, a place known for its hands-on, kid-cool experiments and activities, devotes a large swath of December, each and every year, to The Science of Gingerbread.

    And, yes, a number of nifty and complex gingerbread houses created by the community.

    Created for an annual competition, let us note, a contest that saw over 200 entries in 2018. And those entries, of course, all came together via math, and engineering, too, making this yearly to-do a perfect fit for the educational institution.

    The judging portion of the gingerbread house competition has now wrapped, which means that the winners in several categories are currently on delightful display.

    The 2018 OC winners include "Inspiring Women" (Best by an Organization), "Ghost Buster's X-mas House!!!" (Best Youth 5 & Under), and "A Tribute to Firefighters" (Best Science Theme).

    As for the 2018 winners in Los Angeles? Look for "San Francisco" (Director's Award), "Esai's Magickal Countdown Apartment" (Best Holiday Theme), and "Franken-Gingerbread" (Best Youth 6-13).

    If you're swinging by a Discovery Cube ahead of Christmas, and that's a terrific idea, especially since some local kids are already off from school, be sure to also check out the museum's seasonal activity-filled exhibits.

    Those include The Elves Workshop, where you can "(t)inker like an elf, and construct a toy contraption," as well as the chance to design a Winter Sleigh.

    A patient on his way to Temecula Valley Hospital allegedly got out of his restraints and stole an ambulance Sunday, leading police on a pursuit on the 15 Freeway from the Lake Elsinore area before a foot-chase finish in Hesperia, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The ambulance driver reported the stolen vehicle on a 911 call around 3:35 p.m. Investigators said the man broke free from his restraints on the way to Temecula Valley Hospital, then got into a fight with a paramedic in the back of the ambulance.

    When the driver pulled over to help, the patient commandeered the ambulance, according to investigators.

    The suspect promptly made a stop at a gas station for cigarettes. Aylin Brambila was working inside the AM/PM when the man cut to the front of a line to pay.

    "He started shaking a little, getting a little panicked, I guess," said Brambila. "That's when he was like, 'I'm just going to get this, and I'm going to leave.'

    "Then he gets in an ambulance, doesn't close the door properly and just drives off."

    Eliana Moreno and Newschopper Bravo were over the police pursuit at approximately 4:15 p.m on the 15 Freeway northbound. A short time later, the vehicle passed the 210 Freeway and Rancho Cucamonga area, but continued northbound through the Cajon Pass.

    The pursuit concluded near the intersection of Mesa Street and Mariposa Road on the 15 Freeway in Hesperia when the driver abruptly pulled over without putting the vehicle in park. The ambulance rolled to a stop in the freeway median.

    A shirtless and shoeless man exited the ambulance and proceeded to run into a field with an officer chasing on foot. After a lengthy foot pursuit in which both the suspect and the chasing officer appeared to be out of breath and began walking at times, an officer got out of a CHP helicopter that landed in the field and helped make the arrest.

    Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., announced Monday that he will not seek election to a fourth term.

    The state's senior senator, Alexander has a solidly conservative voting record but is known in the halls of the Senate as a consensus-builder on policy. Under GOP term-limit rules, the next Congress, which begins in January, will be his last as chairman of the Senate's Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

    "I have gotten up every day thinking that I could help make our state and country a little better, and gone to bed most nights thinking that I have," he said in a statement. "I will continue to serve with that same spirit during the remaining two years of my term."

    Only about a third of Americans say women have made "major gains" toward equal rights in the past year, which saw the #MeToo movement and a record number of women elected to Congress, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    Overall, men and women have similar views on how much progress has been made in the year.

    Democratic women remain particularly pessimistic about the gender equality fight over the long term — about a third of them said women have made major gains in the last 10 years, whereas about half of Republican women and men of both parties saw major gains in the same time frame.

    The same percentage of Americans, 46, say women have made major gains toward equality in the past decade as they did in a Merit Report poll in 1982.

    Winter Fest opens: Do you have a sleigh in the garage, one that can whisk you to a magical land of ice skating, chilly tubing, storybook characters, Christmas tree lightings, and other pleasures of the coldest season? You're lucky, for sure, but no enchanted sleigh is required to find this annual treat at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa. The frosty festival, which jingle-jingles from Dec. 20 through Jan. 6, rocks "SoCal's largest outdoor rink" as well as several other details that speak to the sweetness of the bundle-up-iest moment of the year.

    American Cinematheque Holiday: We're nearly to the 25th of December, which means that, for many Southern Californians, the time is nigh to consume as many merry movies as possible. And, if possible, to do so on the big screen, upping the general joy quotient. And you can find a seasonal slew of such cinematic works, starting on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at both the Egyptian and Aero Theatres. Coming up in the days ahead? Look for showings of "Die Hard," "Gremlins," and, yes, "Elf." But be fast on the festive: The ho, ho, ho-filled films wrap on Dec. 23.

    Christmas Festivities begin: If you know the Original Farmers Market, the stall-packed, food-laden, community-sweet spot at the corner of Third & Fairfax, you know that it wears a lot of green throughout the year, thanks to its awnings, tables, chairs, and more. But a little red is splashed in, over one special week, when a bunch of music performances, crafty happenings, and other yuletide-themed to-dos arrive at the landmark. Look for carolers, mariachis, and so much fa, la, la fun to weave its way through the beloved destination, from Dec. 17 through 24. 

    Pints for Paws: So you're completely sweet on the canine-loving, feline-doting Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA? And you're forever looking for ways to support their mission of helping furry and scaly and feather-rocking beasties? Here's one refreshing route, if you're a fan of excellent brews and you'll be in the Arcadia area on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 20. There's a Pints for Paws meet-up, at Mt. Lowe Brewing Company, which lends some love to the historic society. If you haven't grabbed dinner beforehand, there'll be a food truck, too, oh yeah.

    Award-winning Gingerbread Houses on Display: Dig a confection that resembles a casa? One that's covered in gumdrops and candy canes and rocks a ton of kitchen-cool pizzazz? There's a way to admire just those elements, and to do so inside a science-fun museum, too. That museum, or, rather, museums, are the Discovery Cubes in Orange County and Los Angeles, which are now featuring several amazing gingerbread houses. Indeed, the houses, created by talented bakers around our region, are part of the larger The Science of Gingerbread exhibit, an annual happening at both museums. See the houses through Dec. 24.

    A hoax email targeting Netflix users is a scam designed to get users to turn over personal information to hackers, police are warning.

    The email looks like a legitimate message from Netflix, and claims the user needs to update their payment details and billing information. Scammers want the user to click on the link embedded in the email, which could potentially install malware on a computer or mobile device.

    “Criminals want you to click the links, so that you voluntarily give your personal identifying information away,” police in Ohio wrote in a Facebook post.

    The emails are headed with the “Netflix” logo and use a red and white color scheme, making them look authentic. However, there are ways you can detect whether the email is a hoax or a genuine message from Netflix.

    Scam emails are often riddled with spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. In the email the Ohio Police Department shared, for example, the user is addressed as “Dear” and “Help Center” is spelled “Help Centre.”

    The officer who shared the scam email also didn’t have a Netflix account, the post noted – a major tip-off that it was a scam.
