Antiques dealer sues to shoo homeless away from his shop

NEW YORK (AP) - An antiques dealer has sued four homeless people, seeking to keep them away from his store on a posh shopping street because, he says, they alienate customers and block window displays.

Store owner Karl Kemp also seeks US$1 million from the four, named in the lawsuit as John Doe, Bob Doe, John Smith and Jane Doe.

Mr. goody two shoes, Karl Kemp give these poor souls a room out back in his antiques shop to lounge around with three squares and a bottle of cheers. Be neighborly.

Seriously, I know homelessness is no layghing matter, and I don't have the answers.

But I don't understand the monetary part of the lawsuit. Is it the old saying, "You can't get blood out of a turnip, but you can put that turnip in jail'?, or attorney's fees.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
