News@noon: Trump's coronation, Pokemon Go-to-jail

The Detroit News

Today is Wednesday, July 20, 2016, and it's Day 3 of the Republican National Convention.

What happened yesterday? Well, Donald Trump was officially named the Republican candidate for president, his children wooed the delegates and, maybe, voters, and some California staffers brought contagious norovirus to the party. No, for real.

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump's children Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and Tiffany Trump celebrate on the convention floor during the second day session of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, July 19, 2016.

As to be expected, the controversies continued to stir in Day 2, particularly around Trump's campaign chief Paul Manafort. Trump's running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence set to accept the GOP vice presidential nomination tonight, here’s a closer look at some of the claims about his Indiana record.

And all those Dump Trumpers have basically succumbed to multiple causes of death.

All of this has left our columnist Daniel Howes wondering: Is this the best we can do?

Here's what else you need to know in the news:

Consumer alert

  • More than 372,000 pounds of hot dogs and corn dogs made earlier this month are being recalled over concerns of listeria contamination. Here's a list of the products being recalled

Safe sleep

  • It’s every parent’s worst nightmare: they’re taking care of their baby, doze off to sleep and wake up to find that their child is no longer alive, having been smothered. Tuesday morning, a 2-week-old baby girl died in Detroit after sleeping with her mother. If trends hold in 2016, she will be one of about 140 babies in the state of Michigan who will die due to a sleeping-related death.
  • Erica Quealy, a spokeswoman with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, was asked for tips parents can use to keep infants safe while they sleep. Here’s what she had to say.

A new leash on life

Karter Harris, 3, of Pontiac, looks for a family dog to adopt at The Michigan Animal Rescue League in Pontiac as areas at the shelter were completely renovated as  part of a make-over by Animal Planet show Pet Nation Renovation.

  • The Michigan Animal Rescue League has reopened after the television show “Pet Nation Renovation” finished upgrades to the animal shelter. Renovation took place around-the-clock as workers put over $100,000 worth of materials and labor into the upgrades, painting over the tan exterior of the building in a bright blue, adding a pool and landscaping the back play area. The shelter now has a renovated no-cage cat room and new kennels for the dogs.

Say yes to Detroit

  • Brides from across the world are flocking to former TLC ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ consultant Keasha Rigsby’s Detroit bridal boutique. Located in a historic 1889 mansion on East Jefferson, Rigsby opened downtown Detroit’s only bridal shop in February with her business partner, Vallery Hyduk.
