Hidden bra cam used to raise breast cancer awareness

A woman wearing a pink bra barely concealed by a jacket walks around the city, while the hidden camera keeps track of how many times people glance at her chest during a single day.

This isn’t a study on sexism; it is actually a campaign from Nestle Fitness that encourages everyone to check their breasts as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Nestle Fitness had a bright pink bra custom-designed to easily hold the bra-cam, which recorded strangers, from male construction workers to female subway passengers, looking at the chest of the actress. In total, 37 people are recorded looking at the subject’s breasts.

Nestle’s tagline states: “Your breasts are checked out every day. So, when was the last time you checked your own?” The company is using the hashtag #CheckYourSelfie to promote their campaign on social media.

The video has gone viral, generating over 1.2 million page views in a week.

San Francisco to pay $15 million in fatal park hit-run

San Francisco will pay $15 million to the family of a woman who was fatally struck by a city pickup truck last year while she lay with her baby in a public park.

The city's Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the legal settlement Tuesday to 35-year-old Christine Svanemyr's widower, Vegar, and their child, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Svanemyr was relaxing with her 11-month-old baby and dog in the grass at Holly Park in the city's Bernal Heights neighborhood on Sept. 5, 2013, when she was run over by a city Recreation and Park Department truck.

The parks gardener who was driving the truck, 58-year-old Thomas Burnoski, was charged with vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run. The city fired him, and his criminal case is ongoing.

Burnoski says he veered onto the lawn from a paved pedestrian path to avoid an unleashed dog. After hitting the woman, he drove to a work meeting. His lawyer, Robert Waggener, says Burnoski didn't realize he had hit a person and that the case was a tragic accident.

In November, the family filed a legal claim against the city, which is a precursor to a lawsuit.

Earlier this year, city officials said they wanted to resolve the claim without putting the grieving family through litigation.

Svanemyr was a West Virginia native who earned multiple college degrees, trained life coaches and belonged to an African dance group. She met her husband in Salt Lake City, where they were studying Zen Buddhism.

Brazen Walnut Creek wallet snatcher caught on video tape

Armed with images from a surveillance video, Walnut Creek police were searching Wednesday for a female thief who was caught on tape stealing a wallet in a crowded restaurant.

According to investigators, the incident took place inside the Tender Greens Restaurant in downtown Walnut Creek at lunch time on Monday.

The video clearly shows the woman casing the restaurant. She moves to a tablet next to the victim and acting as if she is removing her sweatshirt, grabs a wallet from the woman’s purse.

The suspect then leaves the restaurant.

Police said the suspect allegedly stole credit cards from the wallet and went on a $3,000 spending spree.

Investigators released the video and images in the hopes that someone would recognize the suspect.
