Hundreds of protesters took to the streets in Sacramento yesterday demanding justice after police fatally shot an unarmed black man.

22-year-old Stephon Alonzo Clark shot Sunday as police were responding to a call about a suspect who had broken into some cars and was hiding in a backyard. Officers believed he was holding a gun and opened fire. The object turned out to be a cellphone. Sacramento police released a video of the shooting on Wednesday.

Protesters blocked traffic and locked arms to form a chain around the entrance to the Golden 1 Center where the NBA's Sacramento Kings were scheduled to play the Atlanta Hawks. The disruption delayed the start of the game for 20 minutes and many fans never made it inside. (KGO-TV)

Every Bit Of Exercise Helps - 

You don’t have to be a gym junkie to get the benefits of exercise.  A team at Duke University has found out that every bit of movement helps prolong your life. They discovered no matter how you get exercise, or simply move, your risk of death goes down even if it’s a less than 10 minute workout.

“The point is getting enough movement in the day. You can do it in long bouts of lower intensity or shorter bouts of higher intensity,” says Dr. Bill Kraus of the Duke University School of Medicine.

The lesson here? Being sedentary is not the way to live!

Fire Commissioner Dan Nigro says 37-year-old Michael Davidson was killed on the front lines of the fire which broke out about eleven o'clock last night on a basement movie set at St. Nicholas Avenue and West 149th Street. He was the nozzle man and Nigro says when he backed out after the flames got too intense, he became separated from his unit, succumbed to smoke and could not be revived.

Nigro said the married father of four young daughters was a hero who came from a family of firefighters, including his father and brother. Two other firefighters are being treated for serious burns at a local medical center. 175 firefighters responded to the fire which quickly engulfed the entire building.The building where the fire broke out was being used to film "Motherless In Brooklyn," a movie directed by and starring actor Ed Norton and also Bruce Willis.
