While CES offers the latest technology for TVs, video games and virtual reality, the convention also showcases products for parents. These products help ease the worries many first-time parents have when they are expecting or have already delivered their babies.
If you are planning to celebrate New Year’s Eve on the Las Vegas Strip or Fremont Street, be aware that you are not allowed to bring backpacks, coolers, strollers or glass. There will also be an increase in security to ensure safe celebrations across town.
Las Vegas police released video Monday in an effort to identify a man they said robbed a convenience store clerk at gunpoint last week.
Heavy doses of anxiety, security and elation greeted the imminent arrival of 2018 in Las Vegas. A crowd of 330,000 visitors was expected to fill the Strip and Fremont Street downtown, as a record contingent of law enforcement officers kept the peace. This year’s massive outdoor party unfolded in the shadow of the Oct. 1 mass shooting that left 58 people dead. Several people said they came to celebrate in spite of what happened three months ago Monday.

1. The co-owner of two Las Vegas Strip bars is accused of sexual harassment. The Nevada Equal Rights Commission will hear testimony today regarding Yakov “Jackie” Hefetz, a co-owner of Fat Tuesdays, who is accused of slapping a female staffer’s behind and simulating sex acts behind another female staffer. An attorney representing the company said a settlement has not been reached.
2. A man seeking casual sex at a Las Vegas hotel was instead robbed and stabbed in the face. Police reports say a man went to the Wild Wild West to meet a woman he met on the Craigslist’s “Casual Encounters” page. The man went to the woman’s room, where he was cornered by two men. The man was later stabbed in the jaw by one of the men. One man has been arrested in connection with the incident.
3. Fremont Street officials have added new security features following a deadly car attack in Barcelona. Yellow jersey barriers line major crossings around Fremont Street. Clark County is expediting a similar project for the Las Vegas Strip, with 700 steel bollards expected to be installed by early October.
