April 17 (Bloomberg) -- What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang than placing it on top of the Empire State Building? For the second time in history, the iconic automaker put a new 2015 Mustang convertible on the 86th floor observation deck. How exactly did they do that? The car was cut into pieces in Michigan, shipped in crates to New York, brought to the top of the building in the elevator, and reassembled by a crew in freezing cold temperatures.

After a disaster, contractors and others will often go door-to-door in neighborhoods which have sustained damage to offer clean up and/or construction and repair services. Most of these business people are reputable, but many are not. The dishonest ones may execute schemes to defraud innocent victims. One such scheme is to pocket the payment and never show up for the job, or never complete a job that was started. Another scheme is to use inferior materials and perform shoddy work not up to code in order to pocket more profit. Almost all of these scams begin with an unsolicited visit from a contractor. That is why we say, "If you didn't request it, reject it." If you have damage from a storm, contact your insurance company first. Your insurance company will honor its policy and will cover you for losses so there is no need to speak with a contractor who solicits your repair work—especially when you did not request it.

Fire Trucks Head On Collision Into Monterey Restaurant Critical Injuries. They were both heading to the same fire. A Monterey Park fire truck, and an Alhambra fire ladder truck. One was on Garfield, the other on Emerson, when according to witnesses, they collided. The Monterey fire truck turned 45 degrees, and was almost pushed by the other truck right into Lu's Dumpling House. A man standing outside the dim sum eatery was shoved through the front entrance. The cashier, and her table, were slammed across the small room. Half a dozen customers on the other side ducked, as broken glass rained on them, cutting arms and legs. Six firefighters on the trucks were injured, one of them seriously. The man pinned under the truck was pulled out, and transported in critical condition. Altogether, fifteen people were injured, according to Monterey park fire chief Jim Morrell, who shook his head as reporters asked if he'd ever seen anything like this. "The protocols" he explained, " as we approach an intersection, with lights and siren on, is to slow down and proceed with caution". He confirmed that both agencies were hearing the same dispatch, Verdugo Fire Communications center regional, which handles a lot of the foothill communities. CHP is handling the investigation into the crash. They did not share how fast the trucks may have been travelling.
