750-Acre Palisades Fire Sparks Mandatory Evacuations Near Topanga Canyon Boulevard

A Pacific Palisades brush fire left 750 acres scorched on Saturday, forcing evacuations in multiple areas.

Thus far, an evacuation has been ordered for residents east of Topanga Canyon Boulevard, between the Community House and View Ridge Road. The area north of Entrada, south of Oakwood Drive and east of the Henry Ridge Motorway is also under mandatory evacuation.

Ignited on Friday around 10 p.m., near Michael Lane and Palisades Court, the fire is suspected to be the product of arson. It was exacerbated by wind gusts coming from the south-southwest direction at 15-22 mph, per the National Weather Service.

Topanga Canyon Boulevard is currently closed, between Mulholland Drive and the PCH, due to firefighting activity. Air tankers, however, have been suspended for the night, due to poor visibility.

As of the 7 o’clock hour, there is zero containment of the fire, per the LAFD’s Margaret Stewart, who noted that the terrain involved is steep and extremely difficult to navigate. The Los Angeles Fire Department recommends that large animals be evacuated to Pierce College in Woodland Hills.

Airtel offers free recharge pack to low-income customers

Additionally, the company added that its prepaid customers buying the ₹79 recharge coupon would get double the benefit.

Bharti Airtel on Sunday said it would offer a recharge pack of ₹49 for free to about 55 million low-income customers on its network, as a one-time gesture, to help them stay connected during the pandemic.

Additionally, the company added that its prepaid customers buying the ₹79 recharge coupon would get double the benefit.

In a statement, the company said these benefits, worth ₹270 crore, would “help 55 million low income customers to tide over the impact of Covid-19”.

The announcement comes a couple of days after Reliance Jio said it is working with Reliance Foundation to provide 300 free minutes of outgoing calls per month (10 minutes per day) for the entire period of the pandemic to JioPhone users who have not been able to recharge due to the pandemic.

Airtel’s ₹49 pack offers talk time of ₹38 and 100 MB data with validity of 28 days. “Through this gesture, Airtel will empower over 55 million customers, mostly in rural areas, to stay connected and have access to critical information when needed,” the company said.

These benefits, it added, will be available to customers in the coming week.

The headhunters leading Wall Street's systematic-trading and data-science hiring frenzy

  • Insider compiled the top headhunters in the war for quant finance talent.

The market for quant and data-science specialists has perhaps never been hotter. And the technologists, researchers, scientists, and traders developing cutting-edge investment strategies and platforms aren’t just coveted by hedge funds.

They’re the lifeblood of high-frequency-trading (HFT) firms and proprietary market makers, as well as investment banks building out their systems for electronic trading and execution. They’re also coveted by Silicon Valley juggernauts, startups, academia, and the government. People working on hard-science Ph.D.s from top universities can expect the most elite institutions to start wooing them years before they defend their dissertations.

A cadre of Wall Street recruiters are at the forefront of this lucrative talent battle, and Insider assembled a list of specialists in the field.
