Charges filed against 170 motorcycle gang members

About 170 members of rival motorcycle gangs were charged with engaging in organized crime Monday, a day after a shootout at a Texas restaurant that killed nine people and wounded 18.
The crowd of suspects was so large that authorities opened a convention center to hold them all before they were arrested, police said.
Sunday’s melee at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco drew a broad police response that included placing officers atop buildings and highway overpasses to watch for other bikers rushing to the scene to retaliate.

New York City hopes to become a “zero waste” city. But to do this they have a long ways to go as a report shows their recycling rate in 2014 was only 15.4 percent.  
One of the steps they are taking is implementing a Save-As-You-Throw program. It would reward those who waste less and recycle more. It is believed this effort could reduce waste generation by as much as 30 percent.
