- Oak tree limb snaps, injures three at Menlo Park picnic
By Lizzie Johnson - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
Minutes before a massive limb snapped off a heritage oak tree on Menlo College’s campus Saturday, dozens of adults and children sat under its shade. The afternoon was bright and breezy, and tables filled with food and an inflated bounce house were set up on the college’s quad. Miraculously, fire department officials said, only two adults and a toddler sustained minor injuries. The other two — a woman who was struck in the head and a 1-year-old with abrasions — were taken by ambulance to Stanford Hospital with minor injuries. In a video filmed by first responders, the limb from the 100-year-old tree rests atop an empty stroller and a partially collapsed folding table. Drooping leaves from the limb sway in the breeze, and the entire area is circled with yellow caution tape. The oak tree weeps water from where the limb snapped from its trunk — evidence that this year’s heavy rain season, following years of drought, may have made the tree’s branches unstable.

TheWrap’s Film Reviews Editor Alonso Duralde take his own stab at the subject — and no, he’s not getting paid by anyone at Disney to like (or dislike, for that matter) any of these films.While this movie deserves credit for not putting the fate of mankind on the line — the stakes are more child’s-toy-train-sized — the film’s stabs at humor seem overplayed, and little of Paul Rudd‘s natural charm comes to the forefront of what should be a breezy caper.Director Kenneth Branagh nails the thee-and-thou of the Asgard segments, but the small town where the climax plays out is one of the screen’s cheesiest fake cities since the terrible 1980s “Supergirl” movie.Firmly average, yes, but an improvement on its predecessor and a straight-up good time, skillfully balancing superheroics, second bananas, entertaining villains and the occasional killer one-liner.Director and co-writer Shane Black doesn’t always have the tightest grasp on the story — what does the nefarious Extremis do again, and why? — but he shows off his skill at witty banter (which Robert Downey, Jr. can perform within an inch of its life) and breathtaking action (a mid-air rescue of a dozen passengers who have just tumbled out of Air Force One).The band is back together, and they’re as bristly hilarious as in their first outing, but overall this sequel feels like it’s just vamping (entertainingly) until the next major plot shift in the MCU.Kurt Russell pops up as Ego the Living Planet, who claims to be the long-lost father of Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), and while the movie is more concerned with character and emotion than plot, not all of the moving moments ring true.The plotting and pacing aren’t as tight as in “Winter Soldier,” but if you’re looking for dark human conflict and rousing superhero-on-superhero action, this movie does a whole lot right that Batman v. Superman:Jon Favreau, then most famous for directing “Elf” and writing and co-starring in “Swingers,” seemed an odd choice for the material, but he knows how to give us both the characters (played by Downey and Gwyneth Paltrow with panache) and the ka-blam.Hungry to join The Avengers but still grappling with all he has to learn — he’s only 15, after all — our hero faces off against blue-collar bad guy The Vulture (Michael Keaton, Birdman at last) in an adventure that’s breezy and funny while also featuring genuine stakes, terrific characterizations and wonderfully detailed casting.Aggressive patriotism meets anti-government paranoia in this exciting tale that pits the Captain against labyrinthine conspiracies.[...] the gold standard of the MCU, this movie reveals that Joss Whedon gets comic books down to their DNA, in the same way that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were fluent in the language of serials in the “Indiana Jones” movies.
