A driver parked his taxi to take a break in SoHo. He died behind the wheel. Then, for nearly a day, New Yorkers went about their lives — just feet from his body.

- Handful of Bay Area cities buck the trend of banning all fireworks
By Filipa Ioannou - Friday Jun 30, 2017
A thick layer of fog was draped over San Bruno on Friday, but the fireworks stands set up in the parking lot of the Shops at Tanforan mall boasted boxes with neon text screaming “Dazzle the crowd!” “Backyard Barrage!” “Peacock tail!” and “Phantom Awestruck.”“People are always procrastinators,” said 18-year-old Charlene Smith, who was selling fireworks to benefit the San Bruno Rotary Club.Fireworks of all kinds are illegal almost everywhere in the Bay Area, but a few cities — San Bruno, Pacifica, Newark, Union City, Dublin, Sebastopol, Rohnert Park, Petaluma and Cloverdale — allow the sale of “safe and sane” pyrotechnics, the kind that are neither projectiles nor explosives.Many of the groups hawking the fireworks do so to help law enforcement offset costs of the holiday or to support local do-good organizations.In Pacifica, for instance, fireworks are sold by nonprofits and an 8 percent surcharge added to all sales is used to offset public safety costs dealing with the holiday, according to Capt. Joe Spanheimer, a spokesman for the Pacifica Police Department.Just because the oceanside city allows the sale of sparklers, smoke balls and other safe and sane offerings designed to crackle, glitter and flicker, doesn’t mean its problems with illegal fireworks are settled.“Currently, there appears to be a culture in Pacifica, particularly in the southern end of the City, which believes that illegal fireworks are just something that is part of the July 4th celebration,” the police report said.Several recent busts have seen Bay Area law enforcement agencies confiscate hundreds of pounds of illegal fireworks.[...] although a hundred pounds of fireworks may sound like a lot, those seizures are just a tiny piece of the picture, said Sgt. Ray Kelly of the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.In Stockton, where safe and sane fireworks are legal, police confiscated more than 950 pounds of illegal fireworks from a 37-year-old man on Sunday afternoon.Perhaps the suspect, identified by police as a Stockton resident, was aware that weather forecasters expect the inland areas will be the best places to watch fireworks, with cloudy conditions dominating the whole day in some areas, like Ocean Beach, while in the Financial District, the cloud cover will probably start to roll in around 6 p.m.

- Suite Spot: Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club, Hawaii
By Jeanne Cooper - Friday Jun 16, 2017
Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club, a recent conversion of half of the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, takes care of space and proximity to sand, with relatively moderate prices, too.[...] though it’s part of Marriott’s time-share Vacation Club program, you don’t have to join the club to book here.Waikoloa Beach Resort’s two shopping centers and a trail through the lava to petroglyphs are within a short walk; two championship golf courses are also nearby.All of the stylish, abstract-island-themed units come with a full-size washer-dryer and most of a kitchen (just no cooktop or oven), plus dining room table for four, a large L-shaped sofa bed, balconies off bedrooms and living rooms, and a spacious bathroom (two for two-bedroom units).For inexpensive noshing, pick up prepared food in Lamont’s Sundries in the lobby — much less pricey than the restaurant downstairs.Most units are one-bedroom; “resort view” can include partial ocean view as well as fishpond and mountain vistas.
- Suite Spot: InterContinental Cartagena de Indias, Colombia
By Jeanne Cooper - Friday Jul 21, 2017
Armed rebels and drug cartels have cast long shadows over Colombia, but last year’s peace accord with the largest guerrilla group may finally allow the country’s significant natural and cultural charms a chance to shine.In the Caribbean port of Cartagena, where the old walled city ranks as one of Colombia’s most beautiful colonial enclaves, the ultramodern InterContinental Cartagena de Indias is a high-rise testimony to the high hopes for tourism here.The sleek 26-story, 287-room skyscraper has a clean, coastal aesthetic of blues and whites, with walls of windows overlooking the water; large, light-filled rooms with equally large bathrooms; and an impressive infinity-edge pool and deck hovering above the beach.(The ocean-view Oceanika lounge is another tempting spot for relaxation.) Officially opened in 2016, the hotel recently added a club lounge and gym, with a full-service spa planned for 2018.At Kanuu, the hotel’s acclaimed Caribbean-inspired restaurant, try executive chef Juan Jimenez’s signature dish of Cartagena rice, loaded with crab, shrimp and spices.For more tranquillity, and ideal snorkeling, the concierge can arrange a day trip to the Rosario Islands that includes a private, 45-minute boat ride and passes to a beach resort.
