This is ridiculous! Stop the hate! AUSTIN (KXAN) July 9, 2022 — Texas synagogues canceled Shabbat services Saturday, both in-person and online after the Jewish Federation of San Antonio said there was a threat to the Jewish community.

“Temple Beth in San Antonio posted on Facebook Saturday morning that services were canceled because they said they had received information ‘that the safety situation for the Jewish synagogues in San Antonio today is not optimal.’”

“They have since said the immediate threat was brought to resolution with ‘the apprehension of a suspect.'”

“DES MOINES, Iowa July 7, 2022 — A large number of Iowans could not get online Tuesday afternoon due to a widespread Internet outage. Mediacom, the internet provider whose service went down, now believes it knows the cause of the outage.

“In a statement, a Mediacom spokesperson said the outage was caused by a software bug to a large router operated by a third-party, which left the situation ‘beyond Mediacom’s control. The situation left 40 percent of its Iowa service area without internet at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday.

“The company said it has installed software updates and rebooted its system since the outage.”
