1. New York and Brooklyn from Michael_Novakhov (111 sites): Brooklyn Eagle: Three injured in scaffolding collapse at Park Slope’s Mission Dolores

The scaffolding of an under-construction condo building collapsed Sunday afternoon, sending hundreds of pounds of metal pipes and wood crashing down 10 stories into popular Park Slope pub Mission Dolores, injuring three people.

Scaffolding on the penthouse portion of the 12-story building — the Parlour Residences at 243 Fourth Avenue — gave way and fell into the outdoor patio of Mission Dolores at 249 Fourth Avenue. Three customers were in the patio area; two suffered minor injuries while the third, a woman, suffered serious head injuries, fire officials said.

“We heard a huge crash up in the building, so we all ran down and thought it had landed on our truck – it was a huge metal sound,” said Rachel Crittenden, who was helping her brother move from a neighboring building. “We all ran that way, and then we saw the stuff hanging from the building and we went to the front. One girl got hit and the other two got hit by ricocheted pieces.”

The injured were taken to Methodist Hospital, according to authorities. The woman is in serious condition, while the other two are stable.

The Buildings Department slapped a stop-work order on the Parlour Residences, and ordered contractor Silvercup Scaffolding to remove any remaining scaffolding not properly secured. A large section of scaffolding was still attached on the ninth and tenth floors after the collapse.

The Parlour Residences are currently under construction, and its condos are expected to sell for up to $3 million. The building is owned by 243 Development LLC, an anonymous corporation that lists 478 Albany Avenue as its address on the 2015 deed.

More than 22 complaints against the property have been filed with the Department of Buildings since the demolition of the previous property began in 2016, according to the department’s website. A contractor was fined as recently as June 26 for failure to certify correction of an immediately hazardous condition.

Silvercup Scaffold officials on the scene would not comment on the cause of the collapse. It was not known by press time if a summons was issued against the property owners.

Mission Dolores is popular with locals, especially those who bring their dogs.

Scott Stubbs sat across the street in front of a café with neighbors, watching as crews surveyed the damage.

“The place is usually crowded, but mostly at night. Most people were still at the [Pride] parade. I can’t imagine what would’ve happened if it were crowded,” Stubbs said.

According to Silvercup Scaffolding’s website, the company has been in operation since 2001.

“Silvercup Scaffolding provides specialized, on-site support for the life of the project. Established in 2001 and led by one of the most experienced management teams in the industry, our company excels at what it does,” the website says. “We do many projects ranging from small, two-man jobs to turnarounds requiring hundreds of people, all with a focus on safety. All our workers are SIA & OSHA trained. We only use the best to serve the best.”

The Global Security News: 1. World from Michael_Novakhov (24 sites): World – TIME: Street Clashes Disrupt the Anniversary of Hong Kong’s Return to Chinese Sovereignty

The 22nd anniversary of Hong Kong’s retrocession to China dawned Monday with gray skies, clashes between protesters and riot police, and news of another tragic death.

Local media reported late Sunday that a 29-year-old woman had fallen to her death from the retail podium of the International Finance Centre, after leaving a Facebook post saying that she would not be attending a massive anti-government march planned for today but encouraging Hongkongers to ga yau. Literally meaning “add oil,” in the sense of injecting fuel into a tank, the Cantonese phrase is a common exhortation among protesters.

Her death follows that of a 21-year-old student, who fell from a building yesterday after leaving a note calling for the resignation of the semi-autonomous enclave’s embattled top official, Chief Executive Carrie Lam, and a 35-year-old man who died on June 15 after unfurling a protest banner on the side of a shopping mall. Memorials for all three are planned today.

The deteriorating security situation meanwhile forced a humiliating scaling down of a flag-raising ceremony meant to be a focus of national pride. Some 5,000 police, including armed marine police, were deployed to put on lockdown the area around the waterfront Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, where VIPs were gathered to watch on closed-circuit television the ceremony taking place outside.

Lam looked uncomfortable and, during the toast, drank only a sip from her glass before passing it to an attendant. Democratic legislator Helena Wong heckled her speech and was evicted from the ceremony.

The government said the indoor location was to spare guests from having to stand in the drizzle, but there could only have been relief that dignitaries were shielded from the noisy unrest occurring less than a kilometer away. Street clashes began in the early morning. Black-clad protesters attempted to march on the Convention Centre but were repelled by police. They also occupied Harcourt Road and Lung Wo Road—major thoroughfares in the political heart of the city—where police responded with pepper spray and batons. Nearby subway stations were shuttered.

The disturbances come ahead of a massive march this afternoon. The march is ostensibly to call for the withdrawal of a proposed law that would allow, for the first time, extradition to mainland China. (The government says the law is necessary to prevent Hong Kong from becoming a haven for criminals; detractors say Beijing will use it to order the arrest of dissidents and critics.) However, opposition to the bill has since snowballed into a broad push for greater democracy and a repudiation of China itself.

The furore over the bill has also laid bare political faultlines in the former British colony. Monday’s clashes come in the wake of an angry rally Sunday that saw pro-government mobs abuse and assault journalists and foreigners. Scuffles and tense standoffs also took place with democracy protesters in the area around the legislature and central government offices.
