Manteca Fire Department is prepping for the unthinkable - a derailment of one of the 100-car oil trains now passing through Manteca en route to a Bakersfield refinery via Union Pacific Railroad tracks.
Manteca Police tracked down a 32-year-old minutes after a citizen made a 911 call saying that she had interrupted someone taking a package off a neighbor's front porch that had been delivered there a short time before by a FedEx driver.
It's no secret that technology makes connecting with others easy as pie in this day and age. Facebook, Face Time, Skype, Tango and Glide have all become techno-modes of quick interaction with friends, family and peers. With all that is already out there is it possible that technology has any other ways to connect with someone you care about? Something a little more sentimental perhaps that could bypass receiving likes, dislikes and comments online from people in cyberspace. Is there even such a thing? There is now with MemoryTag.
