Video: Obama Says Vote For Hillary Or You’re A Sexist
(25.99/26)

During a rally in the swing state of Ohio Tuesday, President Obama suggested that anyone who does not vote for Hillary Clinton is a sexist.
Obama told the crowd that “there’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president before,” saying he would like to deliver a message to “the guys out there.”
“I want to be honest,” Obama said. “You know, there’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president before … And we have to ask ourselves as men, because I hope my daughters are going to be able to achieve anything they want to achieve, and I know that my wife is not just my equal but my superior.”
The president then intimated that Americans could vote against Hillary, not because of the numerous scandals she is mired in, and the fact that she encapsulates the Washington establishment machine, but because people are “not used to” women in power.
“And I want every man out there who’s voting to kind of look inside yourself and ask yourself, if you’re having problems with this stuff, how much of it is that we’re just not used to it?” Obama asked.
“When a guy is ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard, well that’s OK, but when a woman suddenly does it, suddenly you’re all like, ‘Well, why’s she doing that?’Obama stated, adding “I’m just being honest.”
The president couldn’t even bring himself to refer to GOP nominee Donald Trump by his name, instead claiming that Clinton is “so much better qualified than the other guy.”
“This notion that it’s somehow hard to choose? it shouldn’t be.” Obama exclaimed.
Critics will suggest that the fact Obama pulled the ‘woman card’ has a distinct whiff of desperation. It’s hardly surprising though, given that every other aspect of Clinton’s campaign is in total disarray.
There can be no argument that Hillary is infinitely better qualified at being a corrupt and lying politician than Trump is.
Elsewhere during the speech, Obama appeared to directly appeal to Ohio’s working class voters, asking them to reject Trump.
Again, refusing to refer to Trump by name, Obama said the GOP nominee “wouldn’t let you into one of his hotels unless you were cleaning the room” or onto his golf courses “unless you were mowing the fairway.”
“This guy is gonna be your champion?” Obama mockingly asked, urging voters not to “be bamboozled.”

'Vote Trump' painted on wall of fire-damaged black church in Mississippi
(21.99/26)

GREENVILLE, Miss. -- Authorities say a fire has partially damaged a black church in Mississippi, and television images show "Vote Trump" spray-painted on an outside wall.
Fire Chief Ruben Brown tells The Associated Press that firefighters found flames and smoke pouring from the sanctuary of the Hopewell M. B Church just after 9 p.m. Tuesday.
He says the sanctuary sustained heavy damage, while the kitchen and pastor's office received water and smoke damage. He says investigators don't know yet if it is a case of arson.
Brown says there was also a political message spray-painted on the side of the church, but would not say what the message said.
"Vote Trump" is clearly visible in images of the church broadcast on television sites.

Hulk Hogan settles Gawker lawsuit for $31 million
(20.99/26)

NEW YORK -  The shell of Gawker has settled with Hulk Hogan for $31 million, ending a years-long fight that led to the media company’s bankruptcy, the shutdown of Gawker.com and the sale of Gawker’s other sites to Spanish-language broadcaster Univision.
The Spanish-language media company Univision has won the bid to buy Gawker for $135 million. CBSN's Elaine Quijano has the latest.
Gawker founder Nick Denton in a Wednesday blog post said that the “saga is over.” Denton filed for personal bankruptcy because of the $140 million verdict won by the former professional wrestler in a Florida court over a sex tape.
Denton says that as part of the settlement, three of the company’s stories - about Hogan and two others who had also filed suit - are being taken offline.
Hogan, a former professional wrestler whose real name is Terry Bollea, sued over a tape posted by Gawker showing him having sex with a friend’s wife.
During a press conference in Tampa, Fla., attorneys for Hulk Hogan discussed the wrestling star’s decision to sue a couple who allegedly filmed him having sex and the web site Gawker which posted the video.
The Gawker vs. Hogan invasion-of-privacy case became even more notorious when it emerged that Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel had bankrolled the suit.
Thiel’s role paying for the litigation against Gawker raised fears about the power of wealthy people to go after publications they dislike. Gawker argued in the Hogan case that it was protected by the First Amendment.
Denton, a former reporter for the Financial Times, launched Gawker in 2002. It became known for its snarky reportage and commentary on celebrities, popular culture and Silicon Valley. In more recent years it has also focused on politics and other major issues of the day. 
Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel made history in Cleveland Thursday night. The Paypal co-founder became the first speaker to acknowledge be...
Gawker also became a breeding ground for journalists, some of whom went on to jobs at the sort of establishment media outposts Gawker itself frequently mocked.
“I think in a lot of ways Gawker has helped to define the voice of the internet,” said Josh Benton, the director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University, who said he’s been a daily reader “as long as there’s been a Gawker.”

What we know about Iowa police shooting suspect Scott Michael Greene
(17.99/26)

The suspect in the deadly ambush shootings of two Iowa police officers appears to have argued with local cops in a recent video – after he brought a Confederate flag to a high school sports game.
Des Moines Police named Scott Michael Greene as the lone suspect for the Wednesday morning massacre. He is on the loose and considered armed and dangerous.
Authorities did not immediately release any information about Greene, 46.
But there is a YouTube page in his name, with videos apparently filmed in Iowa and featuring a man who resembles Greene.
Two Iowa cops killed in 'ambush-style attacks,' suspect caught
One video, posted Oct. 16, shows a man arguing with Urbandale police officers for 10 minutes outside of an athletic event at the city's high school. It is titled “Police Abuse, Civil Rights Violation at Urbandale High School 10/14/16.”
The man filming the video, who is never seen on camera, accuses the officers of grabbing and shoving him as they order him off the property for creating a disturbance.
The man says “African-American people” in the stadium stands assaulted him and stole a flag from him.
An officer says it was a Confederate flag, and that the man flew it “standing in front of several African-American people.”
An officer asks the man if he knows a student in the game, or just came to wave the flag.
“Well, I was using my constitutional rights,” the man replies.
“I was peacefully protesting.”
The man sent this video the local news station WHO-TV, an editor there said.
“He said, ‘I have a story about someone’s civil liberties being violated and I have this video,” assignment editor Amanda Vizcarra told the Daily News.
She said he sent the clip during the station’s overnight shift, and no one there gave it serious consideration.
“It’s just him recording two officers at a football game,” Vizcarra said.
“We didn’t do anything with it.”
She said she was not aware of the man previously contacting the station.
The user posted another video, called “Civil Rights Violation at Urbandale High School 10/14/16,” which shows a man resembling Greene apparently holding a Confederate Flag at a sports game.
The YouTube account also features a video posted just two days ago, showing high school cheerleaders dancing at a gymnasium event.
Greene is suspected of fatally shooting an Urbandale officer and a Des Moines officers in separate attacks.

President Obama’s Plan to Reroute Dakota Access Pipeline Misses the Mark
(12.99/26)

Statement of Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch
WASHINGTON - “After months of unceasing pressure from peaceful water protectors at Standing Rock, people backed by unprecedented unity among North American tribes, it’s not surprising that President Obama  has been forced to comment  on the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. Now he needs to act. The federal governments is failing indigenous communities seeking to protect their sacred lands from indiscriminate desecration, driven by the corporate-driven assault of oil development and destruction. And in suggesting that the pipeline could just be rerouted, Obama misses the key element of resistance to Dakota Access: all new fossil fuel infrastructure must be halted immediately, because our planet is on the brink of climate crisis and there is no excuse for building another 40 years of fossil fuel infrastructure. And no communities should be forced to host a dangerous and destructive fossil fuel pipeline. For the sake of all Americans’ future health and safety, the only acceptable outcome of the Dakota Access situation is to shut the project down for good.”

Val Kilmer says he has 'no cancer whatsoever,' and that Michael Douglas is 'misinformed'
(11.99/26)

Val Kilmer doesn’t have cancer, despite Michael Douglas ’ comment in a recent interview that his costar in the 1996 film “The Ghost and the Darkness” was “dealing with exactly what I had.” 
Kilmer addressed Douglas ’ comments in a Facebook post, noting that he had no hard feelings about the matter.
“I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed,” the “Top Gun” actor wrote Tuesday afternoon. “The last time I spoke to him was almost two years ago, when I asked him for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump in my throat, which prevented me from continuing a tour of my play CITIZEN TWAIN. I ended up using a team at UCLA and have no cancer whatsoever. I still have a swollen tongue and am rehabbing steadily.”
Those errant “Kilmer has cancer!” stories were sparked by a Q&A Douglas did Sunday at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in London, where he talked about “The Ghost and the Darkness.” 
“The picture didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, but I had a wonderful time,” Douglas said, according to the Sun . “Val was a wonderful guy who is dealing with exactly what I had, and things don’t look too good for him.
“My prayers are with him. That’s why you haven’t heard too much from Val lately.”
Hmmm. Maybe it was just Douglas who hadn’t heard much from Kilmer lately? 
The “Wall Street” actor’s battle with cancer was fairly public, beginning with him linking his tongue cancer  to oral sex (he later apologized for any embarrassment he might have caused his current or former wives). Earlier this year, Douglas’ rep told Gossip Cop that his client was “celebrating his fifth year clean” in the cancer department. 
Kilmer, who is a Christian Scientist, denied in 2015 that he was dealing with a tumor or infection. He’d been spotted out in public at one point with what appeared to be a tracheostomy tube and for months had kept his neck covered up with shirts and scarves, sparking speculation. 
“Some fans have mistakenly thought my silence about my personal issues meant that somehow I wasn't being responsible to my health, because of my reliance on prayer and Love,” he wrote Tuesday on Facebook. “Nothing could be further from the truth. Altho I am very grateful for all the support from around the world, when people found out I had a physical challenge.
“I hope this puts to rest any further concerns about my health by publications that have no respect for the truth. Whatever led Michael Douglas to speculate about my health, he's a loving and devoted friend to a privileged group of [talented] people around the world, and I'm sure he meant no harm.”
Oh, by the way, Kilmer would also like folks to know he’ll be in Westwood in the coming weeks in support of his “Citizen Twain” movie. 
“I've only just begun, now that I'm finally telling stories that I've written and produced the way my vision intends them,” wrote. “God bless you all and I hope to see you in Westwood on the 10th and 17th at the Landmark.”

South Africa's Zuma faces calls to resign after report points to possible corruption in his government
(11.99/26)

South Africa’s embattled president, Jacob Zuma , faces mounting calls to resign over claims he turned a blind eye to corruption and allowed a powerful family of Indian businessmen to meddle in government affairs.
A parliamentary watchdog reported Wednesday that Zuma may have breached government rules on ethics, and a company in which his son held an interest may have committed fraud.
Members of the Gupta family, which made more than $500 billion from business dealings with the government, boasted to one government figure that they made Zuma’s son into a multimillionaire, according to testimony revealed in the report.
Zuma has so far been protected by the governing party’s national executive committee – but the damaging report may help Zuma’s enemies turn the panel against him.
If that were to happen, Zuma could be removed from office by the party before his presidential term expires in 2019.
It’s difficult to gauge how likely that may be. But the problems are piling up for Zuma: He also faces the possibility of having to deal with 783 corruption and racketeering charges, which were dropped just before he came to office as president in 2009. In April, the High Court overturned that decision, and if Zuma’s appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal fails in the near future, he may face prosecution.
The report issued Wednesday was produced by the former public protector, Thuli Madonsela, just before her term expired last month. (The public protector is an independent investigator established under the South African Constitution.) Her office assembled evidence of possible wrongdoing by Zuma, members of the Gupta family, companies associated with it and with Zuma’s son, Duduzane Zuma, and the board of the state-owned electricity provider, Eskom.
It stopped short of determining whether crimes had been committed, but called on Zuma to set up a judicial inquiry into his own inner circle within 30 days.
Thousands of people, many of them associated with opposition parties, demonstrated Wednesday in Pretoria, the seat of government, calling for Zuma to step down. The report came one day after the Nelson Mandela Foundation, set up by the country’s revered former president, said Zuma had “failed the test” of national leadership, and called on the governing party to put the country in safe hands.
Jacob Zuma initially took legal action to suppress the public protector’s report, but withdrew the action Wednesday. However he accused Madonsela of violating his rights and said he may yet challenge the report in court.
The allegations of wrongdoing center on a powerful Indian-born business family, Ajay, Atul and Rajesh Gupta, who have extensive interests in mining, arms and a newspaper. The report found Zuma may have breached ethics because he knew of allegations the family improperly interfered in government affairs, including their alleged offers of a bribe to a deputy minister, but did nothing.
A spokesman for the Gupta family said its members welcomed the inquiry as a chance to clear their names. It said the report was “riddled with errors and subject to rebuttal.”
In the past, Zuma has acknowledged his friendship with the Guptas but denied any wrongdoing.
Zuma is alleged to have called a government official responsible for the government advertising budget, Themba Maseko, in late 2010 and told him: “The Gupta brothers need your help. Please help them.”
At a meeting at the Gupta family mansion north of Johannesburg later that day, the report said, Ajay Gupta told Maseko to direct government advertising to a newspaper the family was starting up. If any government ministers resisted, he reportedly said, “We will deal with them. If you have a problem with any department, we will summon ministers here.”
Later, when Maseko didn’t cooperate, Ajay Gupta threatened to “sort him out” and replace him with someone more cooperative, the report said.
Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas reportedly told the public protector’s investigation that Duduzane Zuma set up a meeting with the Gupta brothers at their home last year, drove him there and was present when Ajay Gupta offered Jonas the job of finance minister.
The report also says that Ajay Gupta mentioned that the family had made Duduzane Zuma a multimillionaire. Jonas said Gupta told him the family had made nearly $500 million in its business dealings with the government, but the family wanted to increase that amount to more than $600 million. However, they needed a finance minister who would not stand in their way.

Fed leaves rates unchanged as all eyes turn toward December
(11.99/26)

With financial markets anticipating a rate hike before the end of the year, the Federal Reserve on Wednesday held interest rates steady again, while continuing to acknowledge that the case for a move is getting stronger.
Federal Open Market Committee officials, however, made no direct nod to a coming rate increase at the December meeting, a move that the market is strongly anticipating. In fact, the dovish FOMC majority gained a vote.
In lieu of a rate hike, the group released a statement acknowledging economic improvements that aren't yet enough to generate a policy tightening.
"The committee judges that the case for an increase in the federal funds rate has continued to strengthen but decided, for the time being, to wait for some further evidence of continued progress toward its objectives," the FOMC said in a statement released at the conclusion of its two-day meeting.
Similar language appeared in the September statement, though that statement said the case "has strengthened" rather than this month's "continued to strengthen" phrasing. The word "some" also was missing in September.
"They punted because of the growing uncertainty around the U. S. election," said Michael Arone, chief investment strategist at State Street Global Advisors. "The Fed wanted to take a bit of a backseat, and this fairly benign change in their statement reflects their conservative nature. "
"During the election, the Fed, particularly through the comments from (Donald) Trump, has been made a little bit of a political chess piece," he added. "It wasn't the primary reason for their decision today, but I certainly believe that they didn't want to rock the boat. "
One notable change that did happen was the committee lost one of its dissenters.
At the previous meeting, Loretta Mester, Esther George and Eric Rosengren cast "no" votes, indicating that they would have preferred the committee to enact a quarter-point hike immediately. At this week's gathering, Rosengren joined the eight-member majority that favors holding the line.
Heading into the meeting, traders had been pricing almost no chance of a move this week, but a 73.6 percent possibility of a December hike. The Fed last hiked its rate target in December 2015, the first such move since June 2006.
The central bank took its key policy rate to near zero in late-2008 amid the darkest days of the financial crisis and left it there while expanding its balance sheet to more than $4.5 trillion during three rounds of quantitative easing.
The Fed has held off on further tightening as inflation remains below the 2 percent target, though the jobless rate is near what the central bank considers full employment.
In making its decision, officials described job gains as "solid" and saw household spending "rising moderately," the latter of which was described as "growing strongly" in September. However, they continue to be concerned about the pace of business investment, which tailed off in the third quarter, a sentiment also expressed after the last meeting.
The committee also repeated its judgment from the last meeting that risks to the Fed's economic outlook "appear roughly balanced. "
Though the market anticipates a December hike, it believes the Fed will be on hold for further moves well into 2017. The CME's Fed tracker goes out to September, where it sees just a 32.5 percent possibility of another move.

Clinton campaign makes inroads with Asian Americans
(8.99/26)

Asian Americans are the fastest-growing racial minority in the US and they are turning Democratic.
Asian Americans make up only four percent of the US electorate, but could be a decisive voter group. They are heavily concentrated in important swing states like Nevada and Virginia.
The group was, until recently, firmly and reliably Republican. Now, they are now the fastest-growing racial minority in the US and are turning Democratic faster than any other racial group.
Donald Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric and China bashing has made him particularly unappealing to these voters.
Meanwhile, Clinton's campaign has made extensive outreach to Asian Americans with volunteers fluent in Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese and Korean. And those efforts appear to be paying off.
A nationwide survey of Asian Americans conducted in October showed 55 percent were planning to vote for Clinton while only 14 percent supported Trump.
In the past, Asian-American voter turnout has been low. But with get-out the vote efforts, like volunteers going door to door, and encouragement of early voting, community leaders hope to change that.
"We say, 'your voice matters, it's time for you not to be invisible anymore, but to be visible'", says Vida Lin Chan, who runs a non-partisan political engagement organisation. "It's time for us to say that we matter. "

Waka Flocka says Obama isn't the 'real' first black president
(8.99/26)

Waka Flocka Flame recently came under fire when he suggested that Barack Obama is not the "real" first black president.
"Can't wait to see the day America gets a real black president because Obama don't count! " he tweeted out, later adding, "When will America get a president that don't see race or money? "
After he got a lot of kickback for his views, the reality star posted a statement trying to clarify his position:

Restaurant changes its name to 'Trump Cafe'
(7.99/26)

BELLVILLE, Texas (Newsfix) — If you order something here, Trump Cafe can make your food great again.
Owners Eddie and Su Hawa of Belville Cafe have changed the restaurant's name to Trump Cafe in support of the Republican presidential candidate.
"I like Mr. Trump, but I also want to bring more tourists and more people to the town," Eddie Hawa said.
The couple identifies as Muslim and are immigrants from Jerusalem — proving Trump supports come in all backgrounds.
"He wasn't talking about Islam individually, he was talking about ISIS and tourism," Hawa said.
It seems some costumers are loving the change.
"Since it became Trump Cafe it's become a lot better," said James Black, who frequents the restaurant.
Hawa said regardless if Trump wins or loses, the candidates name will remain on the cafe. Hawa also plans to expand Trump Cafe to other small towns across the country, he said. See photos from this story:

Lil Wayne says he doesn't 'feel connected' to the Black Lives Matter movement
(7.76/26)

During a TV interview on Nightline on Tuesday, Wayne revealed that he doesn't "feel connected" to the activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people.
He began by explaining that he didn't like giving incidents of police violence a catch-all name.
"That just sounds weird, I don’t know, that you put a name on it. It’s not a name, it’s not 'whatever, whatever,' it’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a f***** up reason. "
Asked whether he felt drawn to the movement, Wayne said he didn't, because he felt like it had nothing to do with him.
"I don't feel connected to a damn thing that ain't got nothin' to do with me. "
The rapper went on to explain, "I’m a young black rich mother****er. If that don’t let you know that America understand. "
Shortly after his controversial comments, Twitter ran hot as users lambasted Wayne for distancing himself from the movement.
This is not the first time that Wayne has shared his controversial opinion on racism in America. In September, he told Fox Sports 1's Undisputed that there is "no such thing as racism", citing the amount of white fans at his concerts.

Some White Trump Supporters Fear Becoming a Minority
(5.82/26)

The gaudy ballroom of the Venetian in Las Vegas was filling up, as Wayne Allyn Root, a conservative radio host, warmed up the crowd.
"Hello rednecks," he exclaimed.
“I wrote a book called 'Angry White Male,'" he said. " Trump isn't just a person, he's an idea. He's a big beautiful gigantic middle finger. "
A middle finger, he said, to those who have ruined the country.
In this sentiment, Root is not alone. Of Donald Trump 's supporters, there is a vocal group that worry about a country that no longer looks like the United States they say they knew or envisioned.
Brian Keith Patterson, a machinist who will turn 40 on Election Day , lives in Hendersonville, North Carolina. With wide eyes and a friendly smile, he said he is a registered Democrat who voted for Barack Obama in hopes that he would heal racial tensions.
But Patterson, who is white, said what actually occurred is far from that.
“I’m not afraid to say that I'm in fear for the white man. I'm in fear,” he told ABC News.
“What I'm afraid of seeing is the reverse role, a white man is taking on the position of being the minority. A white man might have a difficult time finding a job because companies need this balancing act, need to have more Hispanics, more African-Americans working. Maybe it's hard for a white guy to find a job and that’s been a concern of mine,” Patterson said.
“That’s why I’m voting for Donald Trump is because I have a great concern for that.”
A study conducted by ABC News/Washington Post in March looked at the roots of Trump’s populism.
According to the survey, much of Trump’s support stemmed from those working-class whites who feel economically disaffected -- some 45 percent of supporters say they're struggling. But their discontent isn’t solely with the economy; the study shows that 37 percent of Trump’s supporters strongly believe that whites are losing out because of preferences for blacks and Hispanics; many fewer of the other candidates’ supporters say the same (21 percent for Ted Cruz and 15 percent for Marco Rubio and John Kasich).
Another recent study out of the University of California-Santa Barbara suggests similarly; it found that many white Americans are more likely to support the Republican presidential candidate if they are reminded that, in a quarter-century, people of color will make up a majority of the population.
According to 2015 Census estimates , people who consider themselves white alone account for 77.1 percent of the population, an increase from 72.4 percent in 2010. Those reporting they are white alone, and not Hispanic or Latino, were 61.6 percent in 2015, a drop from 63.7 percent in 2010, the data show.
And according to the Census , the country is expected to become "majority-minority" in 2044.
The Republican nominee, who has long battled criticisms of racism and xenophobia, appears to have bolstered these fears, promising to build a wall to prevent Mexicans from illegally entering the country. When he announced his campaign, Trump called some undocumented Mexican immigrants rapists and murderers.
Trump has also pledged to stop the flow of refugees into the country and, at one point, proposed a ban on all Muslims entering the country.
In front of largely white crowds at rallies, he has painted an apocalyptic picture of life for African-Americans in the "inner cities," saying that they have "nothing to lose" by voting for him. And he also drew fire for not immediately disavowing supporting from former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke.
Trump has denied time and time again that he is pandering to this segment of the base; making frequent appeals to African-Americans and Latinos in his speeches, adding that he wants to be president for “all Americans," once saying that he is the “least racist person.”
When the KKK’s official newspaper endorsed him this week, the campaign released a statement that said, "Mr. Trump and the campaign denounces hate in any form. This publication is repulsive and their views do not represent the tens of millions of Americans who are uniting behind our campaign. "
Trump has continued to repeat the call to build the wall and warns of people flooding into the country if his opponent were elected and the dangers from terrorism about the Syrian refugee program.
Patterson said he has no problem with legal immigration and said he favors diversity. He is quick to insist that his views are, “in no way being a supremacist or anything like that.”
William Dow, a white small-business owner in Manchester, New Hampshire, believes America’s strength is in its diversity.
“I think the U. S. has always been a melting pot,” he said, speaking before Trump’s rally there in late-October.
But he, too, doesn't like what he's seeing.
“Almost, if there were four people in line ... one Spanish, one African-American, one Chinese, the white guy’s got the diploma and everybody else doesn’t, that they would pick somebody else because they have to have an equal-opportunity employer,” Dow said.
“I think in the '60s the white man was dominant and everybody else was smaller in numbers. I think now they’ve switched. The American, white American has traded roles, we’re outnumbered,” he said.
Jayna Knowlton, who lives in a suburb outside Grand Rapids, Mich., attended a Trump rally there on Monday. Outfitted in a wide-brim cowboy hat, her chants for Trump pierced through the deafening roar of the crowd.
“I want my kids to know freedom,” she exclaimed, freedom from political correctness. She said she has been called a racist and a bigot before.
When asked whether she believes she is, Knowlton, who is white, responded, adamantly, “No, because I don’t want to live amongst them, especially ones that are calling me that.”
Knowlton, 58, sees the changing demographics, saying she is “absolutely” aware that whites in America are becoming the minority.
“We’re discriminated against; with jobs, how we’re treated, it’s more of an energy that’s been brought in,” she said. “I have black friends, I love them dearly but…they keep voting Democrat and they’re still a mess and their cities and their streets are still a mess and when you try to explain to them if nothing changes, nothing changes, they get mad at you and you’re a racist. Whatever! I wasn’t [called] a racist until now.”
Her vote for Trump rests in something deeper than policies or proposals. For her, he is her champion, the champion of all of white America.
As she looks toward his victory, of which she is confident will happen, a comfort arises, one that she said she hasn’t felt for a long time. “I want my country back,” she said.
For with Trump’s victory comes liberation, she said.
“Freedom to be,” she said, “to express yourself in any way you want to.”

Time Warner earnings soar with 'Suicide Squad' and 'Sully'
(5.23/26)

Strong performance from the movies “Suicide Squad,” and “Sully” as well as CNN’s coverage of the contentious presidential election propelled Time Warner Inc. ’s third-quarter earnings beyond Wall Street’s estimates.
The better-than-expected results came less than two weeks after phone giant AT&T announced that it was buying Time Warner for $85.4 billion — a 35% premium over Time Warner’s trading price before news of the deal.
“We believe that combining with AT&T is the natural next step in the evolution of our business,” Time Warner Chairman and Chief Executive Jeff Bewkes told analysts during a Wednesday morning conference call. 
Bewkes said he expected the AT&T deal would close by the end of 2017, “if not sooner,” pushing back on speculation that the massive merger could get hung up in Washington.
For the July-September quarter, Time Warner reported earnings of $1.83 a share on revenue of $7.2 billion. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had predicted earnings of $1.37 a share on revenue of $6.98 billion. (In the third quarter of 2015, Time Warner earned $1.27 a share on revenue of $6.6 billion.)
Net income for the third-quarter of 2016 reached nearly $1.5 billion.
The Warner Bros. film and TV studio in Burbank was back in the company’s good graces, lifted by DC Comics superheroes and Clint Eastwood’s film about the real-life pilot hero, “Sully.” Revenue at the Burbank studio increased 7% to $3.4 billion. Operating income was up 11% to $428 million.
“Warner had a terrific quarter,” Bewkes said.
The results were fueled by the August release of “Suicide Squad,” which generated more than $325 million domestically and nearly $750 million worldwide. Two other third-quarter films, “The Legend of Tarzan” and “Sully,” the latter starring Tom Hanks as the steely pilot who guided his jetliner for a landing in the Hudson River, both earned more than $120 million in U. S. and Canada. 
“Sully” represented the sixth Warner Bros. film this year that surpassed $100 million in ticket sales. The current quarter should be even stronger as Warner Bros. is banking on J. K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” part of the Harry Potter universe.
“We think it will be a global hit, not just at the box office but in consumer products and across all platforms,” Bewkes said.
Time Warner’s cable programming unit, Turner, turned in strong numbers due to the strength of CNN and the other channels, TBS, TNT and Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Revenue rose 9% to $2.6 billion because of higher subscription fees and CNN’s strong advertising sales. Turner’s operating income increased 8% to $1.2 billion.
HBO, the company’s smallest unit, saw revenues climb 4% to $1.4 billion because of higher subscription revenues. Operating income increased 2% to $530 million.
AT&T’s proposed cash and stock purchase of Time Warner would make the phone company the nation’s largest media company, surpassing the Walt Disney Co. and Comcast Corp. , which owns NBCUniversal.
Analysts on the earnings call were interested in whether the massive deal would provoke a review of the Federal Communications Commission, which is expected to be a more thorny process than a review by other federal agencies. The FCC reviews license transfers from one company to another.
Time Warner’s corporate attorney explained that none of Time Warner’s licenses, including an independent TV station in Atlanta, were central to the company’s business, so the company was “looking at” whether the FCC would be involved. AT&T and Time Warner are hoping to sidestep an FCC review. However, the massive deal also will be reviewed by the U. S. Justice Department.
A series of "beta" events will be staged in completed storefront areas of The Main Museum in downtown L. A. The events will kick off with a performance by Suzanne Lacy and Andrea Bowers.
The new federal courthouse in Los Angeles is "an unusually polished work of civic architecture. "

Evita Rodham Clinton?
(4.99/26)

Living in the Philadelphia media market, watching television means enduring the battle of the political ads. I’ve found Hillary’s latest ad very interesting. In it, she says how America’s success is measured by the success of its children, and all the wonderful things she will do for them when she is president. For the ancient Romans, Hillary would be the ‘Bona Dea’ – the goddess providing good things to children and families. Today, however, I think Hillary may aspire to be the next Eva Perón, who, although she died in 1952, retains the title of ‘The Spiritual Leader of the Nation of Argentina.’
Although she was only 33 years old at her death, Eva Perón’s accomplishments far outshine Hillary’s decades-long public career. Most notably, Eva, or ‘Evita’ as she styled herself, was the major force behind women’s suffrage and equal rights in her country.
Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who served two terms as Argentina’s president (ending in 2015), said : “Women of my generation owe [Evita] a debt: When we came of age during the dark [military] dictatorship of the 1970s, we had her example of passion and combativeness to get us through.”
Sixty years from now, will American women in politics speak of Hillary is such glowing terms? Naturally, Hillary would love to be so immortalized. However, if she wins on Election Day, I predict her legacy will be a combination of how she rode her husband’s coattails to the Senate and the Presidency, had an administration constantly beset by scandal, and improved the lives of Americans not one iota.
A major indicator is how she, Bill, and Chelsea have managed the Clinton Foundation. Like Evita and her charitable foundation, the funding was based on shakedowns from powerful business and foreign interests. But Evita was much more sophisticated politically.
Evita used her foundation money to help ordinary people, particularly the poor – so they would remain committed to husband Juan Perón’s presidency and political party.
The main function of the Clinton Foundation seems to be to enrich the Clinton family and provide employment to Bill Clinton’s top advisers. What a wasted opportunity:  imagine Hillary going from town to town in swing-states cutting ribbons on ‘Clinton Day Care Centers’ or ‘Clinton Children’s Clinics’. Evita would have approved.
As the 2016 Election Day draws near, I wonder how Hillary plans to execute all her wonderful promises, such as transforming K-12 education? Where will the money come from? Not from cuts to the military, as defense types see her as pro-military. And what, precisely, is in her resumé to demonstrate she can execute these promises?
Here’s a note for those business and financial big-wigs who are supporting Hillary:  she’s going to meddle in the day-to-day operations of your firms. Will your campaign contributions will keep Hillary’s regulators from your door? With Democrat populist Senator Elizabeth Warren yapping at Hillary’s heels, if Madam President has to throw your business under the bus to shut Warren up, she’ll do it.
Hillary says she’s for equal pay for women. Translation:  her administration will comb through a business’ hiring and pay records, and woe betide those who haven’t promoted women fast enough to suit her auditors. Or have hired enough women (hey, Wall Street – why do stock exchange floor traders seem to be all male?).
Plus she’ll be pushing for onsite daycare subsidized by employers or subsidized daycare vouchers. Call it the Europeanization of the American workplace.
That’s just on the labor side. Imagine what her environmental regulations will do.
For decades, Hillary has been thinking about how to make America better – starting with her ‘ politics of meaning ’ concept in 1993.
She may yearn to be the Evita of the United States, with a legacy that marches through the decades. But that’s an unlikely prospect, as she lacks Evita’s street-smarts and charisma.
Meanwhile Americans have become used to seeing women competently running large multinational corporations (e.g., Indra Nooyi, CEO of Pepsico – with $63 billion in 2015 revenue.
Thus if Hillary makes it to the White House, it will be notable, but not as notable as President Obama’s achievement as the nation’s first African-American president.
Indeed, history may shrug at a President Hillary Clinton, especially if she fumbles and lasts only one term. No Evita is she.

Russia's foreign minister says Syria process 'sabotaged'
(4.34/26)

ATHENS, Greece — Russia's foreign minister accused other countries involved in Syrian peace negotiations of having "sabotaged" the process with continued backing of militant groups intent on toppling President Bashar Assad.
Sergey Lavrov made the remarks Wednesday on a visit to Greece, a NATO and European Union member that has maintained close ties with Russia.
He didn't name any countries. Peace talks have involved U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the foreign ministers of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Iran.
"Unfortunately on many occasions, efforts for a political resolution have been sabotaged. That is not in accordance with U. N. Security Council resolutions. Some parties are backing extremists aimed at removing the Assad regime," Lavrov said.
"If those resolutions had been carried out in an honest way, the situation in Syria would have already improved. "
Lavrov met with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, as part of a friendship initiative between the two countries that included multiple cultural exchanges and a visit to Greece in May by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Over the weekend, the Russian navy destroyer Smetlivy reached Greece's main port of Piraeus before sailing onto the east Mediterranean to join warships backing government forces in Syria's five-year-old civil war.
Russia's relations with the U. S. and its allies came under further strain after Moscow used airpower to back a Syrian government siege of Aleppo, Syria's second largest city. Peace talks resumed after Russia halted the airstrikes last month.
"We have seen that after every humanitarian pause, the opportunity is used by the terrorists to strengthen their manpower and weaponry," Lavrov said.
Athens is keen to maintain close ties with fellow-Orthodox Christian Russia, despite its participation in EU sanctions against Moscow, and a gas pipeline project designed to limit Russia's regional energy dominance.
Russia is one of Greece's main trading partners, but business has been hit by the sanctions and a drop in commodity prices.
Lavrov's trip comes less than two weeks before a visit to Greece by President Barack Obama.

Lindsay Lohan debuts, explains new accent
(4.29/26)

Lindsay Lohan might be from Long Island, but you wouldn’t guess it from her new accent. 
Actually, it’s completely unclear what kind of accent she has in a video that Perez Hilton posted on Tuesday. The footage is from Oct. 15, when the actress opened the Lohan nightclub in Athens. 
#LindsayLohan has a new speaking accent/mannerism - and it is the most odd and fascinating thing!! Watch HERE! https://t.co/jOGRRXg2lG pic.twitter.com/9beQWIspSQ
Lohan herself poked fun at it, tweeting, “What should I call my new accent? I’m thinking #LILOHAN .”
When the Daily Mail asked her what the accent was, she answered, “Je ne sais pas.” 
Well, it certainly has that “je ne sais quoi.” (It’s not French, either.) 
She added, “It’s a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn. I’ve been learning different languages since I was a child. I’m fluent in English and French can understand Russian and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic.”

Jimmy Kimmel continues his Halloween prank tradition
(4.24/26)

Jimmy Kimmel continued his Halloween tradition of having parents prank their children by telling them they've eaten all their candy and filming their reactions - and this year he did it to his own daughter too. Kimmel showed viewers the results of his annual YouTube challenge 'I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy', now in its sixth year. There were the usual temper tantrums, hysterical bawling and anger-fueled insults from kids across the country - with some even falling down in despair at the news and another cursing. But there were also the understanding youngsters who forgave their parents for their transgression, with one girl telling her mother: 'I'm not mad. I'm not happy but I still love you.' Another quick-witted boy refused to fall for the trick, telling his mother: 'It's Jimmy Kimmel. You're hiding the candy, I've seen this before. I've watched YouTube.'  And unlike in  the challenge's previous years, Kimmel was able to join in on playing the prank himself as he now has a trick-or-treater under his roof: his two-year-old daughter Jane. He dressed her up as a monkey to go trick-or-treating and subsequently played the prank - which backfired on him. The toddler's reaction to his informing her about allegedly eating her candy was her current favorite word: No. And after contradicting everything her father said, she simply stated that she wanted pancakes. 'I'll try again next year!' Kimmel told the audience in the studio after the clip was played.

Video ads becoming more prevalent on Facebook
(4.20/26)

NEW YORK — Whether it’s a video clip of your friend’s dog or a live stream of the presidential debates, you are likely watching more videos on Facebook than ever. And that means you’re also more likely to see video ads.
Facebook’s latest strategy is to grow both user-generated and advertiser-created videos as it tries to get a firm foothold in this nascent but growing market. The strategy appears to be working. While Madison Avenue is not known for risky experimenting, advertisers are already testing the waters with live video. General Motors, for example, launched its electric Chevy Bolt EV through Facebook Live this year.
“People are spending more and more time on mobile, especially video,” David Wehner, Facebook’s chief financial officer, said in an interview.
He said this has been a big factor in helping drive up overall mobile advertising.
It helps on the video front that Facebook had successfully transitioned from desktop to mobile, despite early doubts. Now, when Facebook tries to sell video to its advertisers, it can simply point to past financial results. The percentage of ad revenue that came from mobile has increased every quarter since the company began reporting this figure in 2012.
In the July-September quarter, Facebook had $6.8 billion in advertising revenue, a 59 percent increase from a year earlier. Mobile advertising accounted for 84 percent of this. Facebook had 1.79 billion monthly users as of Sept. 30, up 16 percent from a year earlier.
Facebook earned $2.38 billion during the third quarter, or 82 cents per share, up sharply from $896 million, or 31 cents per share, a year earlier. Adjusted earnings were $1.09 per share, above the 97 cents that analysts polled by FactSet had expected.
Total revenue rose 56 percent to $7.01 billion, surpassing analysts’ expectations of $6.92 billion.
Video ads will become more important as Facebook sees a slowdown in how many ads it shows between all the updates from friends, a measure known as ad load. Facebook’s stock fell $8.77, or nearly 7 percent, to $118.20 in extended trading after Wehner told analysts that “ad load will play a less significant (role in) driving revenue growth” after mid-2017, leading to slower growth overall.
In addition, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook will “invest aggressively” to accomplish its goals and will continue hiring, especially engineers, in 2017.
Where Twitter failed with the quirky, killed-off video app Vine, Facebook is succeeding with Instagram, not to mention its main service. Users are posting and watching live and recorded videos, thanks to more powerful smartphones and a relentless prodding by Facebook to do so. If you use Facebook, for example, you likely received notifications that your friend “is live now” or “was live” – that is, broadcasting live video from wherever they happen to be, doing whatever they happen to be doing.

33 miners dead after explosion in China coal mine
(4.18/26)

CHONGQING , China, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- All 33 miners trapped in a Chongqing, China, coal mine after an explosion are dead and their bodies recovered, state media said Wednesday.
The incident occurred at the privately owned Jinshangshou Coal Mine on Monday. Two people escaped, but the 33 were trapped underground ; rescuers worked around the clock to reach them. China's Administration of Work Safety ordered an investigation, and nearby mines were temporarily closed, the BBC reported , citing China's Xinhua news agency.
The cause of the explosion was not identified, but typically it involves a spark igniting gas released by mining operations.
Mining accidents in China are not unusual; more than 600 miners died in 2015 in incidents similar to Monday's. A gas leak in a mine in northeastern Jinlin province killed 12 miners in April; one died, and four miners were trapped underground for 36 days, in an incident in January; and 22 died in May in a mine explosion in Chongqing province.

State capture report
(3.99/26)

The word 'Eskom' appears 829 times in State of Capture report compiled by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela. Cell phone records obtained by the Public Protector show that Molefe and Ajay Gupta exchanged 58 calls in eight months between 2015 and 2016.
Ajay is one of three brothers‚ the other two being Atol and Rajesh Gupta‚ whose business empire and alleged political influence have stirred up a hornet’s nest of controversy in South Africa.
The parastatal was a source of lucrative contracts for the Gupta family and Duduzane Zuma‚ the son of President Jacob Zuma‚ through a company called Tegeta.
Tegeta secured a 10-year supply agreement with Eskom to supply coal to the Majuba power station. Tegeta also secured contracts to supply coal to the Hendrina and Arnot power stations.
Madonsela said in her report that a member of the Gupta family admitted to her during an interview on October 4‚ 2016‚ that Molefe was his “very good friend” and often visited his home in the upmarket suburb of Saxonwold‚ Johannesburg.
“Eskom’s awarding of the initial contracts to Tegeta to supply coal to the Majuba Power Station will form part of the next phase of the investigation‚” noted the report by Madonsela.
Having considered the evidence uncovered during the investigation‚ Madonsela said that it appeared that the board of Eskom was “improperly appointed”‚ not in line with the spirit of the King III report on good Corporate Governance.
A board appointed to a state-owned-enterprise was expected to act in the best interests of the country at all times but‚ “it appears that the board may have failed to do so”.
Molefe was seconded to Eskom from Transnet on April 20‚ 2015 as an Acting Group Chief Executive. He was appointed as the Group Chief Executive on September 25‚ 2015.
Cell phone records show that he called Ajay Gupta 44 times between August 2‚ 2015 and March 22‚ 2016. Gupta called Molefe 14 times during the same period.
Molefe was also in telephonic contact with Nazeem Howa - a director at Tegeta and until recently the CEO of Gupta-owned company Oakbay Investments - four times in a single day‚ August 24‚ 2015.
The timing of the phone calls is significant as it dovetails with a controversial purchase by the Gupta family of Optimum coal mine. The Guptas' reportedly financed this deal with about R600 million that was a pre-payment by Eskom to Tegeta for coal.
The report published a diagram showing a “distinct line of communication between Mr Molefe of Eskom‚ the Gupta family and directors of their companies in the form of Ms (Ronica) Ragavan and Mr Howa. These links cannot be ignored as Mr Molefe did not declare his relationship with the Gupta family”.

Blacks “seriously f***ed in the head,” says top Dem donor – leaked video — RT America
(3.59/26)

In the video, prominent Ross donor Benjamin Barber expresses his opinion about blacks who vote Republican by comparing them to Nazis.
“Have you heard of the Sonderkommandos? Jewish guards who helped murder Jews in the camps. So, there were even Jews that were helping the Nazis murder Jews!” Barber is shown saying allegedly at the fundraising for Ross on the Upper West Side of New York City on September 19. “So blacks who are helping the other side are seriously f***ed in the head. They’re only helping the enemy who will destroy them. Maybe they think, ‘If I help them, we’ll get along OK; somehow I’ll save my race by working with the murderers.’”
The video was released by Project Veritas Action, a nonprofit organization begun by James Edward O’Keefe, a conservative political activist, which produces secretly recorded undercover audio and video encounters. O’Keefe was commissioned in 2009 to publish videos on BigGovernment.com by Andrew Brietbart of Brietbart media, a conservative news outlet.
O’Keefe sought comment from African-American Republicans in North Carolina who in the video strangely condemn not the donor Barber for his remarks, but the candidate he is supporting.
“I think that Deborah Ross has shown her true colors. If this is not a, if that… what you just showed me is not racism and condescending and basically calling blacks stupid and ignorant and saying that we are voting against our own self-interest if we support any Republican. I am appalled. I am incensed. Deborah Ross should be called to task for something like that,” said Bishop Wooden, a black voter in North Carolina. Previous videos released by Project Veritas focused on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
The four-video “Rigging the Election” series was released between October 17 and 26, and shows how the conspiracy to win the White House for Hillary Clinton “ was orchestrated right from the White House down,” O’Keefe says. “These are high-level operatives… The expose was probably one of the most powerful, indicting things of this election.”
READ MORE: "If I was a Hillary supporter, I'd win a Pulitzer Prize": O'Keefe talks to RT on exposing Democratic Fraud.
The first video explained how the Clinton campaign allegedly incites violence at Trump rallies. The second video uncovered “a diabolical step-by-step voter fraud strategy,” including an admission by one key operative that the Democrats have been rigging elections for 50 years. The third video focused on “exposed prohibited communications between Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the DNC and the nonprofit organization Americans United for Change.” The fourth video ties the whole thing together by breaking down the process of the investigation. 
Keefe gained national attention for his video recordings of workers at ACORN offices in 2009 allegedly aiding a couple in criminal planning, recorded conservations with two-high ranking, now former NPR executives in 2011, over funding and with Planned Parenthood.
He has received extensive criticism for selectively editing his videos to change the context of recordings to achieve political goals.
The video of ACORN, a nonprofit community organization that advocated on behalf of low and moderate income families, resulted in Congress freezing federal funds for the nonprofit and the controversy resulted in the nonprofit losing most private funding before an investigation was conducted.
In March 2010, ACORN was close to bankruptcy and had to close or rename most of its offices. The California State Attorney General's Office and the US Government Accountability Office released their related investigative reports. O'Keefe was found to have misrepresented the actions of ACORN workers and that the workers had not committed illegal actions. The preliminary probe by the GAO found that ACORN had managed its federal funds appropriately.
One of the fired ACORN workers sued O'Keefe for invasion of privacy. O’Keefe issued an apology and agreed to pay

Why some Latinos are backing Trump (Opinion)
(3.37/26)

They are Latinos for Trump -- and their existence cannot be denied.
Although polls show Hillary Clinton with as much as a 50-point lead among Latino voters , Donald Trump still manages to get the support of almost 20% of Latinos. That's nearly one in five of America's largest ethnic minority group. So why would any Latino support the presidential candidate who has run the most anti-Mexican, anti-immigrant campaign in modern history?
Latinos actually support Trump for the same reasons that some other Americans do. Although their motivation may seem misguided, their support for Trump speaks to the overall diversity of the Latino electorate. Latinos for Trump are a product of factors both prosaic and complex.
US Latinos currently number around 55 million. The Pew Center estimates that 27 million of them are eligible to vote in the presidential election. These huge numbers encompass recent arrivals and people whose ancestors have been on American soil since it was part of Mexico. It encompasses bodega workers and CEOs. U. S. Latinos can be natural-born citizens or immigrants from more than 20 countries across Central and South America.
US Latinos can be black , Asian, Jewish, Mormon , evangelical Christian, LGBT, and everything in between. It is unrealistic to expect such an enormous group of potential voters to fall into ideological lockstep. Assuming that Latinos will not support Trump is a simplistic way of looking at our communities.
It is also a mistake to expect Latino voters to mirror African-American voters. An October CBS News poll found Trump with just 4% support from likely African-American voters (in a four-way race including Gary Johnson and Jill Stein). But Latino voters are far less monolithic than African Americans due to differences in our collective experiences.
The defining moments in African-American history include slavery, the southern civil rights movement and the election of our first black president. For Latinos these moments are immigration, relations with Cuba and the civil rights movement in the southwest. So while the interests of Latinos and African Americans may overlap on many issues, each electorate is informed by a unique and different history.
What's more, the ugliness of Trump's immigration rhetoric does not necessarily resonate as an issue with all Latinos. Cuban-Americans and Puerto Ricans, for example, do not share the same immigration concerns as Mexican Americans. In fact, new research from Latino Decisions breaks down the top concerns of Latino voters by region. While immigration was the top concern of Latinos in California, in Texas Latinos were most concerned with lowering the cost of health care. New York Latinos were most concerned with improving wages, while terrorism was the top concern of Latinos in Florida.
Like other voters, some Latinos are attracted to Trump's promises of change, his message on jobs, and his outsized public image. His ability to channel a populist sense of outrage has won over some Latinos, too. Trump could have probably earned more Latino support had he stayed on an aspirational message and not derailed himself by launching attacks on everyone from a Latina former Miss Universe to a distinguished Mexican-American judge.
Many prominent Latino conservatives such as Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), former Bush Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez and syndicated columnist Linda Chavez have refused to endorse Trump. Yet Latinos can be just as partisan as anyone else. Among the roughly one-quarter of Latino voters who identify with or lean towards the GOP, there are no doubt those who simply cannot bring themselves to vote for a Democrat. No matter how they might feel towards Trump, they still prefer him to Clinton.
There are likely deeper forces in play here as well. Historically, Latinos have been portrayed negatively by the media. It is not far-fetched to think that some Latinos have unconsciously absorbed these messages and then acted upon them. Such "internalized oppression," as sociologists call it, is not unlike homophobes who have been revealed to have issues with their own sexuality.
Thus we have Latina Trump supporter A. J. Delgado insisting that Trump did not insult Latinos when he called immigrants "rapists" and criminals. Or the head of Latinos for Trump, Marco Gutierrez, on MSNBC warning of " taco trucks on every corner. " Their positions make more sense when we see them as a result of years of ingesting inaccurate stereotypes and fear-mongering.
In a perfect world, no one would vote for Trump, given his bigotry, misogyny, Islamophobia and xenophobia. He is unqualified in virtually every relevant way for the presidency. Still, those who choose to support him have the right to do so, regardless of their ethnicity or background.
Our democracy is a multicultural, messy jumble of ideas and opinions. Like it or not, Latino Trump supporters fit right in.

India says withdrawing 8 diplomats from Pakistan
(3.31/26)

NEW DELHI, Nov 2 (Reuters) - India said on Wednesday it would withdraw eight of its diplomats from Pakistan after they were identified in local media reports, in a further deterioration in ties between the nuclear-armed South Asian neighbours. "They have put in the public domain eight names and six of these people went today. We will eventually withdraw all eight," said Vikas Swarup, spokesman at the Indian Ministry of External Affairs. He said the diplomats had been "completely compromised" after their names and pictures were put in the public domain. Earlier, Pakistani media reported that Islamabad may expel as many as five Indian diplomats suspected of spying. (Reporting by Douglas Busvine; editing by John Stonestreet)

Poll: Donald Trump Takes 3-Point Lead in Virginia — 15-Point Swing in Past Month
(3.30/26)

The Hampton University Center for Public Policy (CPP) poll out on Wednesday afternoon shows that Trump has taken a three-point lead over Clinton in the Old Dominion, inside the poll’s margin of error of 4.57 percent. The survey of 802 Virginians, taken from Oct. 26 through Oct. 30—meaning it was conducted both before and after the FBI announced its reopening of the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit home brew email server—found Trump at 44 percent and Clinton at 41 percent.
A release from the University notes that Trump had already started closing the gap in Virginia before FBI director James Comey’s announcement, in his letter to Congress, but that Clinton was ahead by a small margin then. It was after the FBI announcement that the bottom dropped out of Clinton’s campaign in Virginia, boosting Trump way over her.
“The HU Center for Public Policy poll was conducted October 26-30, 2016, and at the start of the poll, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had a two point lead prior to the release of the email news story breaking on Friday, October 28th,” Hampton University’s CPP said in the release:
Overall, this is a 15-point swing away from Clinton towards Trump from the most recent previous Hampton University CPP poll conducted back in late September and early October, where Clinton was up 12 points.
A Trump aide told Breitbart News this week that it seems like Virginia is definitely in play. This individual highlighted previous election cycles — Ken Cuccinelli’s run for governor and Ed Gillespie’s run for Senate — where polls underestimated Republican candidates in both cycles.
Now that Trump has pulled into the lead in Virginia, a five-alarm fire alarm is surely going off in Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Brooklyn. In fact, before this poll came back, Clinton’s campaign changed up the candidate’s schedule to deploy her to Michigan —another state that has gone blue in the last several presidential elections but seems to be trending towards Trump—and announced new six-figure ad buys in many blue-leaning states, including Virginia.
If Trump locks down Virginia’s 13 electoral votes, Clinton’s firewall for the White House is significantly diminished, and he is well on his way to becoming the next president of the United States. Trump has already now pulled ahead in Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Nevada, Iowa, and more. Winning those, plus the red states and Virginia, would ensure Trump the White House with a comfortable win well above 270 electoral votes and many more states like Michigan, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Maine’s second congressional district, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and more still in play on the chessboard.
The fact that Virginia is back in contention this late in the game, after Clinton previously thought she had it locked in, is particularly embarrassing for her running mate. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), who once served as the state’s governor. Kaine has been a lackluster vice presidential candidate who, after a poor showing in the vice presidential debate against Mike Pence in Virginia, has canceled rallies after generating embarrassing headlines with his small crowd sizes.
Other recent surveys have also shown Virginia tightening, and it is ultimately unclear exactly what will happen on election day. But if past is prologue—looking back in recent years at the polling in both the Cuccinelli and Gillespie races versus the actual results—then this contest is coming down to the wire between Trump and Clinton in the Old Dominion.

Taylor Swift tops Forbes' 2016 list of highest paid women in music
(3.29/26)

Nov 2 (Reuters) - With earnings of $170 million, pop singer Taylor Swift was 2016's highest-paid woman in music, Forbes magazine said on Wednesday.
Swift, 26, smashed the Rolling Stones' North American touring record, pulling in a total of more than $200 million on the North American portion of her "1989" world tour. Last year, the "Bad Blood" singer came in second to Katy Perry with an estimated $80 million.
Swift was honored with the first-ever "Taylor Swift Award" at the BMI Pop Awards in May, quipping that she "would be kind of bummed" if the award had gone to someone else.
British "Hello" singer Adele, 28, ranked second on Forbes' list with $80.5 million in earnings, her highest total yet. Adele, whose album "25" swiftly became the biggest seller of 2015, enjoyed continued success with album sales this year and grossed millions per night for her arena shows.
Madonna, who was named the highest-paid woman in music in 2013, ranked third this year. Her recent "Rebel Heart" tour grossed $170 million, bringing her career total on the road to $1.4 billion pretax, according to the magazine.
In the past 12 months, Madonna, 58, earned a total of $76.5 million. That was slightly more than Barbados-born Rihanna, who earned $75 million and also received a lifetime achievement award at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28.
"Lemonade" artist Beyonce, who was 2014's top earner, ranked fifth at $54 million.
Collectively, the 10 women on Forbes' list earned more than $600 million this year.
Forbes compiled the list after estimating pretax income for the 12 months from June 2015 to 2016 based on interviews with managers, agents, lawyers and some of the stars. It also looked at data from the Pollstar, the Recording Industry Association of America and tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan.

Time Warner’s Turner Inks Deal for DC Movies
(3.28/26)

Time Warner ’s film and TV empires are getting a little cozier. Turner will be the basic cable home for DC Entertainment theatrical titles, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes revealed during Tuesday morning’s earnings call. Bewkes didn’t name specific films, but the DC movie slate covers recent heavy hitters like “Suicide Squad” and the upcoming “Justice League” franchise.
The DC deal comes as Turner is beefing up its movie catalogue in a big way. In September, Turner closed a deal with Disney for the rights to the “Star Wars” films, including “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” That blockbuster deal, with an estimated value of at least $250 million, came after a 2014 agreement between the two for the rights to five Marvel movies, including “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Marvel’s Captain America 3.” Turner has also acquired the TV rights to the “Hunger Games” franchise.
The DC subsidiary of Time Warner is a big contributor to the company’s bottom line, Bewkes said, with TV revenues for its 10 series now exceeding $1 billion. Five of those series air on The CW, Warner Bros.’ joint venture with CBS Corp.
Time Warner beat expectations on its third quarter earnings, but on the big subject of discussion Tuesday was the impending merger with AT&T. Bewkes and his lieutenants faced a grilling from analysts about everything from HBO subscriber numbers to FCC review of the deal, starting with how the company, famed for its culture of encouraging creatives, would keep that culture intact. Bewkes’ response? “First of all, I’m not going anywhere, and will be here going into the closing and quite a long time after,” he said, reiterating that all of the top executives at Time Warner’s subsidiaries would also be sticking around.

36-Foot Donald Trump Effigy to Go Up in Flames at UK Festival
(3.23/26)

A 36-foot effigy of Donald Trump will be set on fire in an English town this weekend as part of annual bonfire celebrations across the U. K.
Trump was the "obvious option" for this year’s effigy, according to organizers at the Edenbridge Bonfire Society, which selects a public figure to set on fire each year in the south of England. A photo of the effigy shows Trump holding the head of rival candidate Hillary Clinton , while wearing shorts decorated with images of men in Mexican sombreros.
"We’re literally helping Trump to live out his own catchphrase, 'Burn it down' by exploding the effigy as the opening act for our fireworks display," Edenbridge Bonfire Society spokesperson Jeni Fox said in a statement to ABC News. "It seemed only fair that Hillary Clinton also took some of the limelight, and we’re sure the presidential candidates will be pleased to see they’re both featured. "
Bonfire Night is celebrated on Nov. 5 across the U. K. where firework celebrations typically feature effigies of Guy Fawkes, one of the men behind the plot to blow up British Parliament in 1605.
The Edenbridge Bonfire Society has made a name for itself for using the celebration to poke fun at public figures who have attracted widespread scorn. In previous years, the society has burned effigies of soccer players Wayne Rooney and Mario Balotelli as well as disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong and former FIFA chief Sepp Blatter.
The Trump effigy will be stuffed with fireworks and newspapers and set on fire during the Saturday evening celebration.

A new video may confirm Trump's relationship with mob figure
(3.21/26)

Donald Trump said he didn't know mob figure Robert LiButti -- but recently resurfaced video seems to tell a different story.
Footage from a professional wrestling event in 1988 shows Trump sitting next to LiButti.
Trump's campaign waived it away and explained to Yahoo News that the businessman sat next to many people in his life.
SEE MORE: A Veteran Spy Claims Russia Has Been Aiding Trump For Years
But LiButti's daughter claims she and her father were actually Trump's guests at that wrestling event.
Connections between Trump and LiButti surfaced in March. In the past, Trump's casino was found guilty of breaking anti-discrimination laws while catering to the high-roller.
In the early 1990s, the Trump Plaza was fined a substantial sum for violating anti-discrimination laws while catering to LiButti. Investigations found the casino deliberately kept blacks and women away from LiButti while he gambled because he was such a high-roller and the casino didn't want to lose his business.
Trump wasn't tied to the scandal personally but said at the time he knew of LiButti but wouldn't have been able to match a face to the name.
LiButti's daughter has claimed Trump had a long relationship with her father that went beyond high-stakes gambling, with Trump bringing LiButti on his private helicopter and yacht. The Trump campaign insists no personal relationship existed.
Aside from LiButti, federal investigations in the past have found several of Trump's businesses likely benefited from mob connections –– possibly even racketeering.
Yahoo has noted Trump might not have been able to avoid doing business with the mob back then, given the control that organized crime has exerted over the New York construction industry in the past.

Venezuela's attorney general to sue opposition parliament
(3.17/26)

CARACAS, Venezuela, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Venezuela's attorney general announced he will file a lawsuit against the opposition-controlled National Assembly over "unconstitutional actions. "
Attorney General Reinaldo Muñoz ordered his agency on Monday to file a lawsuit over the National Assembly's recent declaration that President Nicolas Maduro 's regime staged a coup d'etat.
"Politicians who control the National Assembly must put limits on their ambitions. They may not try to repeal the rule of law by mere proselytism," Muñoz said in a statement.
The National Assembly was declared defunct by Venezuela's supreme court earlier this year -- an act the opposition said shows how the country's institutions favor Maduro's regime.
"The National Assembly rashly intends to commit a fraud to the law and to the constitution, when it tries to apply an act of political justice against the president of the republic as it does not exist in the constitution nor in the rest of the Venezuelan legal system," the Attorney General's Office said in a statement.
The National Assembly recently said Maduro would stand trial after the opposition's efforts to carry out a recall referendum were suspended by the National Electoral Council, which is also accused of favoring Maduro. The opposition lawmakers said Maduro staged a coup d'etat by ordering unconstitutional actions.
Muñoz said the National Assembly's claim that Maduro staged an unconstitutional coup d'etat and its intent to make Maduro stand trial are grounds for legal repercussions.
"The Attorney General of the Republic, exercising his constitutional and legal powers, and to its ultimate competencies, activates a lawsuit against the National Assembly to the appropriate authorities, in order that the most effective measures are taken to the comprehensive protection of the state and nation, given the persistence of unconstitutional actions of the legislative body that make a whole claim to a coup, a systematic attack on the Constitution, and sustained threat to peace, development and the stability of the nation," the Attorney General's Office added.
The unicameral parliament on Tuesday delayed the symbolic trial of Maduro to ease tension amid political crisis talks.

Mel Gibson talks 'Passion of the Christ' sequel and advice to his younger self
(3.14/26)

Mel Gibson was bright-eyed and bushy-faced when he dropped by “ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert ” Tuesday night to promote his latest directorial effort, “Hacksaw Ridge.”
Not only was Gibson willing to talk about his new film, he also indulged Colbert and joined him in a recurring sketch called “Big Questions with Even Bigger Stars.”
During the sketch, Colbert and his guest lie on a picnic blanket, as though gazing up at the stars, and ask each other philosophical questions.
Colbert asked Gibson if he could go back in time and give a younger version of himself advice, what would it be.
“Don’t be so caught up in the little things,” Gibson mused, reading from a teleprompter, as he noted later in the sketch. “Take advantage of all the gifts the world has to offer and live every day to the fullest.”
“I’d also tell my younger self,” Gibson added, “to shut the [expletive] up.”
That bit of advice likely alludes to Gibson’s past, including one incident in which the “Mad Max” actor used anti-Semitic language in tapes released by his ex-girlfriend.
Gibson also told Colbert about his long-rumored sequel to “The Passion of the Christ.” He  said the film, which is called “Resurrection,” was likely still three years out, being that it’s such a big subject.
“Yeah, yeah, I’ve read the book,” Colbert quipped. “I know how it ends.”
But Colbert was still confused about how the story of the Resurrection could be turned into a film. After all, the story lacks traditional action: The protagonist is dead, then disappears, then returns.
That’s when Gibson revealed that he plans for the film to entail not just the story of Jesus Christ’s resurrection, but also his journey through the days of his death.
Specifically, where “The Passion of the Christ” dramatized that “[he] suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried,” part of the Apostles’ Creed, “Resurrection” will capture the “he descended into hell. On the third day he rose again from the dead” portion.
“Who’s the bad guy?” Colbert asked Gibson. “Is it Thomas, who doubts that Christ has risen?”
“No,” Gibson replied.
“No bad guys?” Colbert pressed.
“Well, there are,” Gibson said while twisting his silvery beard. “They’re in another realm.”
Gibson’s latest, “Hacksaw Ridge,” arrives in theaters on Friday.
A series of "beta" events will be staged in completed storefront areas of The Main Museum in downtown L. A. The events will kick off with a performance by Suzanne Lacy and Andrea Bowers.
The new federal courthouse in Los Angeles is "an unusually polished work of civic architecture. "

Louis Farrakhan Compares Hillary To Black Community's Hitler
(3.13/26)

Louis Farrakhan railed against Hillary Clinton during a sermon this past Sunday.
The Nation of Islam leader first commended Donald Trump for taking away power from the media.
Farrakhan noted that the Republican nominee had been plastered across the television networks’ election coverage as a means to embarrass him, but that only resulted in free campaign advertising for the Trump campaign.
“You don’t even realize that you [the media] are no longer in power,” he stated. “Can’t you see you’ve failed?”
WATCH (Election comments begin at 2 hr, 19 min):
Farrakhan then turned his focus towards the Democratic nominee.
“My dear brothers and sisters, this is serious,” Farrakhan told his congregation. “Her husband and Joe Biden were the authors of the crime bill that put tens of thousands of black brothers and sisters in prison.”
“Mrs. Clinton backed the crime bill and then called our young people super predators. Of course she apologized, but just a minute. See Hitler could’ve said to the Jews after Auschwitz, ‘I’m so sorry.’ Would that be enough to satisfy you?”
Yes           No

“In a 1939 letter, Sanger wrote about getting the black preachers to help with her efforts. She said, ‘we don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.’ … And when Mrs. Clinton received the award, [she said] I admire Margaret Sanger enormously. Her courage. Her tenacity. Her vision.’ Now they have to admit that the war on drugs was a war on black people.”

University executive’s Bigfoot hunt costs taxpayers $7,000. His boss isn’t happy
(3.12/26)

The head of the University of New Mexico’s Gallup campus is under fire for spending money on Bigfoot-related pursuits.
UNM Gallup’s Executive Director Dr. Christopher Dyer organized a two-day, on-campus Bigfoot conference in February followed by a Bigfoot expedition, costing taxpayers more than $7,000, KRQE-TV reported.
“It was the largest and most well-attended event in the history of this campus,” Dyer said.
UNM paid for advertising, meals for guest speakers, airfare and per diem. Self-professed Bigfoot expert Dr. Jeff Meldrum was paid a $1,000 honorarium plus expenses. The other guest speaker, Rob Kryder, was paid a $500 honorarium plus expenses.
Dyer is an avid Bigfoot hunter in his free time and says he only pursues the mythical creature when he isn’t on the job. He has a collection of Bigfoot hairs and photos of suspicious footprints.
After the conference, Dyer and some of his companions went to the desert searching for Bigfoot. No students or faculty went on the expedition, but KRQE found UNM paid for the expedition. Dyer said he and his companions did not spot Bigfoot, but they did see habitat.
“I’d have to say it was pretty much a blown waste of money because we did not find evidence because of the snow. It was just impossible to get around out there. So in that case, yeah would we spend money on that again? Absolutely not,” Dyer said.
Dyer said he uses discretionary funds for field work that he believes has some kind of merit, such as field work of some kind of research. “People use monies from the taxpayers to do research. For Bigfoot or whatever,” Dyer said.
UNM President Robert Frank said he didn’t know about the university’s Bigfoot spending until reporters called about it.
“Dr. Dyer needs to be much more thoughtful about how he undertakes these activities,” Frank said. “The type of expedition that just took place was not appropriate and will not occur in that manner again.”

Louisiana school desegregation case settles
(3.12/26)

The Justice Department says a settlement agreement will ensure black students have better access  to a Louisiana public school that only enrolled white students when it opened more than a century ago.
The settlement approved Tuesday (Nov. 1) by a federal judge is designed to resolve lingering desegregation issues at the A. E. Phillips Laboratory School, a school for young children that Louisiana Tech University operates on its Lincoln Parish campus.
The school, which serves students from kindergarten through 8th grade, was first ordered to desegregate in 1984.
The Justice Department says Louisiana Tech agreed more needed to be done to increase the percentage of black students enrolled in the school. The settlement calls for expanding school facilities to two classrooms per grade level to accommodate more black students.

‘Pillars of Destruction’: Mesmerizing images reveal interstellar activity
(3.06/26)

The European Space Observatory has released striking images of gaseous activity within a star-forming region called the ‘Carina Nebula.’
The spectacular observations recorded by the ESO’s Very Large Telescope reveal vast pillar-like structures within the interstellar region of the Carina constellation.
The pillars are vast clouds of dust and gas within a hub of star formation about 7,500 light-years away from Earth, according to the ESO.
Thousands of images, at different wavelengths of light, were created by the telescope’s high-tech instruments and analyzed by an international team of astronomers.
Ten pillars were identified in total, and a clear link was established between the radiation emitted by nearby massive stars and the features of the pillars.
Although majestic in appearance, the ‘pillars of destruction’ have been given their somewhat foreboding name as the emerging massive stars destroy the clouds from which they originate.
They do this by blasting out large amounts of powerful, ionising radiation in a process known as ‘photoevaporation’ – these emissions are so powerful, they have the potential to strip atoms of their orbiting electrons.
Scientists observed the results of the photoevaporation, including the loss of mass from the pillars, and found a clear correlation between the amount of ionising radiation being emitted by nearby stars and the dissipation of the pillars.
However, this is no cosmic calamity as the relationship between the stars and pillars are highly complex. It is possible that the radiation and celestial winds from massive stars can also help acreate denser spots within the pillars, which can then form stars, according to an ESO statement.
These captivating observations come 21 years after the striking and now well known image of the ‘Pillars of Creation’ captured by the Hubble telescope in 1995 in a small region of the Eagle Nebula.

GRAPHIC-World markets' seismograph twitches as Trump gains
(2.99/26)

By Patrick Graham and Vikram Subhedar LONDON, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Big moves in some measures of financial market volatility still leave investors betting Hillary Clinton will win next week's U. S. presidential election and potentially heavily exposed to ructions that would follow a shock victory for Donald Trump. Signs that Republican candidate Trump may be closing the gap on Democrat Clinton caused some volatility gauges to rise on Wednesday but readings remain far short of the big spikes seen close to events such as June's Brexit vote in the UK. Clinton is viewed by investors as the candidate of the status quo while they are fearful of what a Trump victory might mean for foreign policy, trade relations and immigration. "Volatility will be driven by probabilities and Trump is the low-probability candidate," said Richard Cochinos, Citi's European head of G10 FX strategy. "Right now it is still the unforecasted win. So if he did come through that would give volatility a significant boost. " Analysis by Goldman Sachs this week showed realised volatility of the S&P 500 index - the gap between its peaks and troughs - was the lowest for an October in 23 years at 6.6. By contrast, contracts providing for implied volatility over the next month have risen steadily in the past few days and at 17.1 are now close to their average for previous presidential elections. As this chart shows, however, that leaves them way short of levels seen around Britain's EU referendum in June, during a brutal China-driven sell-off in January, or when Beijing shocked investors by devaluing the yuan in August last year. Cross-asset market volatility: http://reut.rs/2eUHdp6 Other indicators also provide some sign of the pressure that may be building. Implied volatility of the major currencies reached its lowest this year last month but it hit four-month highs on Wednesday and the resources being moved into easily used cash by fund investors suggest they expect it to rise further. Yen one-week implied volatility doubled on Wednesday though it remains short even of levels hit before September's U. S. Federal Reserve meeting. That on the Mexican peso is the highest since 2008. That may all be good news for banks' trading businesses, some of which saw record rises in income from bond, currency and commodities dealing in the second quarter. (Editing by Catherine Evans)

Experts: FOMC meeting may hint at a December hike
(2.34/26)

The Federal Open Market Committee meeting will likely be "a yawn," former Federal Reserve governor Mark Olson said Wednesday.
Wednesday's meeting is expected to provide some clarity on the Fed's intentions to raise interest rates in December, a move that is widely expected among analysts and investors.
Speaking on CNBC's " Squawk on the Street ," Olson said that while the Fed will probably not raise rates this meeting, the committee's actions could provide hints as to what is in the works for December.
"What I think is going to be particularly interesting is to see how last meeting's dissenting voters react this time. That may be a signal as to whether or not there was agreement on what they're going to do in December," Olson said.
Richard Clarida, global strategic advisor at Pimco, told "Squawk on the Street" in a separate interview that while the Fed could deliver blunt hints of a December hike this meeting, he expects the same number of dissenters, saying it would be awkward to see dissenters sitting out of a critical meeting.
Clarida also said he expects the Fed's overall language to remain fairly dovish.
"They don't want to admit it, but I think that the timing of this meeting, for them, essentially takes this meeting off the table" in light of the presidential election, Clarida said.
"And I think, as a result, there will be a bias to keep the language pretty close to September just to show that, basically, this is just the Fed on course and ignoring the election," said Clarida.
What disappointed Olson more than the likelihood of a throwaway meeting is what he sees as a lapse in the Fed's recent rhetoric.
"There is no reason at this point why the Fed should not be moving back toward more normalization. That's the one thing that's disappointed me about some of the recent statements. I don't see the term 'normalization,'" the former governor said.
Still, Olson and Clarida were in agreement that the economy is well-positioned for a hike in December, though Clarida said the Fed will presumably be as cautious with future hikes.
The strategist said two hikes in 2017 would be reasonable, if not low, but acknowledged that the Fed is keeping in mind other, broader effects of the U. S. Fed raising rates.
"The economy itself probably could adjust [to more than two hikes], but when you have the impact on the dollar and on other parts of the global economy, that does limit the Fed's lift-off," Clarida said.
Former Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher said that global markets constitute more than a mere variable in the Fed's considerations.
"I would note, having just been in Europe, the excoriating criticism right now … across Europe about the failure of negative interest rates as a regime [and] the failure of zero interest rate policy in terms of the way both impact financial institutions," Fisher told CNBC's " Fast Money Halftime Report. "
In light of global markets effectively "gagging" on these policies, Fisher said Wednesday that the Fed is exceedingly likely to raise rates in December.
"I think the market's saying, 'Enough, this is damage being done … to pension funds, insurance companies and net interest margins at banks,' and it's a destructive force, not a positive force," Fisher said.
Fisher echoed the idea that the Fed is ignoring the election and trying not to interfere.
Adding to that sentiment, any monetary policy reform moving forward will probably be slow and gradual, according to Fisher, who deemed it appropriate.
But if Fed officials get too dovish, they'll regret it, Fisher contended.
"I think if they don't move in December, they will have egg all over their face, and I think that's the critical issue," he said.

Brexit overshadows Swiss talks with Merkel on EU immigration — RT News
(2.29/26)

Swiss President Johann Schneider-Ammann arrived in Berlin on Wednesday to discuss immigration issues with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. In addition to defending his country’s plan to introduce hiring preferences, which was backed by the lower chamber of the Swiss parliament last month, he intends to fight a proposed framework agreement that Brussels wants to sign with Switzerland to replace around 120 sector-specific bilateral treaties with EU members.
"Above all else, Mrs Merkel will hear from me that we are counting on the EU not to force upon us a connection between freedom of movement and a framework agreement," Schneider-Ammann said in an interview aired by broadcaster SRF ahead of the visit.
The two leaders agreed to continue the talks between Switzerland and the EU. Merkel said that she is “ optimistic ” about the future of the immigration deal, adding that the negotiations “ are bound ” to be successful.
Schneider-Ammann expressed his hope that a “ solution ” would be found before the end of the year. At the same time, he stressed that any future deal must be both compatible with EU rules on the freedom of movement and supported by most Swiss citizens.
Swiss talks with the EU on immigration are being closely watched in Britain, which will renegotiate its own arrangement with the EU on market access and labor movement as it proceeds to leave the bloc. Immigration concerns were a major factor in the Brexit referendum, accounting for roughly half of the ‘leave’ votes in the poll, according  to EurActiv.
However, both the Swiss and German leaders on Wednesday said they would not like the British situation to affect the outcome of their talks.
"If I tried to put myself in the shoes of a Swiss citizen, I wouldn't be pleased if it was suddenly cast in a new light because of another decision in another country," Merkel said at a news conference.
"That's why we should conduct these talks with Switzerland as if the Great Britain issue never existed. I can only say that the German position hasn't changed with Great Britain's decision. These are two completely different issues.”
There is a difference of opinion among politicians and legal experts on whether the Swiss plan to comply with the referendum requires Brussels’ blessing.
The Swiss federal government has until 2017 to implement the decision taken by citizens in a 2014 referendum, when they voted in favor of imposing quotas on the immigration of workers from the EU. Switzerland is not part of the union and regulates the movement of people to and from the EU by a network of bilateral treaties with individual members. If taken literally, the public demand would require the government to denounce those treaties and spend years negotiating new ones.
The government instead wants to impose preferences for Swiss businesses, which would encourage them to hire locals despite their requiring higher wages rather than giving jobs to foreign workers. The cost of living in Switzerland is higher than in some of its neighbors, so there is a sentiment in several cantons that foreigners are stealing jobs from the locals.

CMA Awards 2016: 5 things to expect when Country Music's biggest stars go head to head
(2.15/26)

The show will pay tribute to the last five decades of country music with some of the most famous names in the industry lined up to perform. Here are five reasons to watch.
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will take the stage again to host the show for their ninth consecutive year. The duo is known for their opening monologue where they poke fun at their fellow country music stars and also take on topical subjects. With the presidential election just six days away, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton jokes are sure to abound.
Underwood has set a precedent of multiple wardrobe changes during the show. This year, the Grammy winner has been giving fans a sneak peek with pictures of her many beaded and sequined gowns on Instagram. Underwood recently told reporters that she plans to wear outfits representing the 50 year history of the show. "I'm gonna kinda start and end the night as me, but throughout the evening, it'll be like sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties, like early 2000s. " It sounds like Paisley might get in on the fun too. "She can show the best of the decade, and I can show the low point," he said.
The show's slate of performers is impressive: Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire and many more. One that will surely have you reaching for your Kleenex box will be when Randy Travis takes the stage. The singer suffered a debilitating stroke three years ago -- impacting his mobility and speech -- but he's making a comeback.
The battle for Entertainer of the Year is the most coveted award of the night. Underwood is the lone female in the category up against Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, and Keith Urban. Other big competitions include Album of the Year -- for which Underwood is nominated for "Storyteller" -- Male Vocalist of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.
Country music's most epic performance could take place tonight. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards, 30 of country music's biggest stars got together to make the "Forever Country" music video. The video first debuted in September and features a medley of country music's greatest hits: "Take Me Home, Country Roads," "On The Road Again," and "I Will Always Love You. "
The 50th Annual CMA Awards air November 2 at 8pm ET on ABC.

Sixteen-year-old Tatiana Jackson has been identified by New Orleans police as the suspect in the Oct. 23 stabbing of a 22-year-old man in New Orleans East, the department said Wednesday (Nov. 2).
Jackson and the man had connected via social media and arranged to meet in person.

Russia offers humanitarian pause
(2.10/26)

| Print |  E-mail
Wednesday, 02 November 2016 07:03
Russia says aid corridors to stay open on Friday for longer hours and fighters have two routes to leave eastern Aleppo.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered a new humanitarian pause in Syria's Aleppo, urging opposition fighters to use it to leave the besieged eastern districts.
Russia's defence ministry said Putin ordered that the aid corridors - which Russia had opened earlier - will also be open on Friday, for longer hours, from 9am to 7pm, along with two new exit routes for the fighters to leave eastern Aleppo.
The ministry announced Putin's new gesture in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement said that the exits will be open on Friday for both civilians and rebels "in order to prevent a senseless loss of life".
It also said that the opposition offensive on the Syrian government-held districts in western Aleppo that was launched last week had failed to break through the siege.
Salvos of rockets
Fighters launched a major assault on Friday, backed by car bombs and salvos of rockets, to break through government lines and reach the 250,000 people besieged in Aleppo's east.
Since then, opposition factions have amassed on Aleppo's western outskirts in a bid to end Bashar al-Assad government's three-month encirclement of the city's eastern districts.
Aleppo has been hit by some of the worst violence in Syria's five-year conflict, turning the once-bustling economic hub into a divided and bombed-out symbol of the war.

The Guardian view on South Africa: a president’s failings and his country’s successes
(2.09/26)

T he crises keep coming for Jacob Zuma, and if some in South Africa believe he will ride them out, others wonder how many lives he has left. Today it was the call for a full judicial inquiry into allegations of corruption at the top level of government by the recently departed public protector, Thuli Madonsela, whose report warned of serious concerns that the president allowed the billionaire Gupta family to influence the selections of cabinet ministers. The document, entitled State of Capture, explains much of the opposition to Mr Zuma: the belief that his leadership has led to a huge expansion in patronage politics , not only raising moral and legal concerns but damaging the country’s capacity to develop. It comes days after the chief prosecutor dropped fraud charges against the widely respected finance minister, Pravin Gordhan, who had dismissed them as politically motivated. Earlier this year, Mr Zuma was forced to apologise after South Africa’s top court ruled that he had breached the constitution in refusing to repay government funds used in an £11m upgrade to his private residence.
All of this comes at a cost for ordinary South Africans, further denting a stagnant economy, and miring a political class in infighting when it could be tackling the country’s immense challenges, notably its enduring poverty and inequality. Street protests will not determine Mr Zuma’s future, but they are indicative of the pressures he faces. African National Congress politicians know their remaining moral authority is haemorrhaging and that the bleeding cannot be stopped while Mr Zuma is in charge. The condemnations are gathering force: this week the Nelson Mandela Foundation – which has previously shunned political statements – warned that the wheels are coming off the state thanks to his political meddling for private interests.
Nor – and this should concentrate the party’s minds – can the ANC stem its loss of political support, which has already cost it control of major cities in this year’s local elections. It will not regain this support as long as Mr Zuma is in charge. His previously solid rural support base is showing signs of weakening and even his closer supporters may be thinking again – patronage networks can last only as long as there are prizes to distribute. Whether internal opposition to Mr Zuma is coherent enough for rivals to challenge him directly remains to be seen.
Whatever the president’s future, there is cause for optimism as well as concern. The apparently endless controversies surrounding him are testimony to what South Africa has got right as well as what Mr Zuma and his friends have got wrong. Tellingly, the president dropped his legal attempt to block the report’s release: the country still has strong courts, a vibrant media and a lively civil society – as evidenced by the student protests that led to the scrapping of fee increases. Its institutions have so far stood up to Mr Zuma and pushed back to maintain their independence. South Africa’s constitution has played an important role in all this, as have parts of the ANC. So too have individuals such as Ms Madonsela , much admired for her tenacity in the face of intense political pressure. A growing number of people are dismayed and distressed by Mr Zuma’s actions, but these struggles are a powerful reminder of why institution-building matters.

But there’s not one picture – not even a blurry paparazzi pic – of the two of them together. Anywhere. They've supposedly been seeing each other for months, so where has the royal photo pack been?
Kensington Palace is saying nothing, as per usual policy about commenting on the private lives of the rich and royal.
Markle doesn't look like the ginger prince's usual type: His previous girlfriends have been British blondes. Instead, she's a buxom biracial brunette beauty, a lifestyle and foodie guru, social-media maven and humanitarian activist. She has two really cute dogs.

The Harry-likes-Meghan story first turned up in Sunday papers, such as the tabloid Express , which reported that they met in May in Toronto, where she lives and he visited to promote his Invictus Games. The Daily Mail says he's "besotted" with her, and that Prince William and Duchess Kate have met and liked her.
She has said nothing but the British media are poring through her Instagram  accounts looking for telltale signs. Their evidence so far: They wear similar braided bracelets. She's visited London several times recently, and has taken a picture outside Kensington Palace where Harry lives. She drinks tea and likes Wimbledon. She's charity minded like Harry and like his mother, the late Princess Diana.
She posted a picture Monday of two spooning bananas, which The Sun insisted was a cryptic hint of a royal romance. (Sometimes bananas are just bananas.)

Why strategist Bob Doll isn't worried about the election's impact on the market
(2.08/26)

Stocks may be negatively reacting as Donald Trump 's prospects improve, but strategist Bob Doll said he isn't really concerned about the election's impact on the market.
That's because while the popular vote is reasonably close, he thinks Hillary Clinton has the Electoral College "pretty much wrapped up. "
Polls show the race tightening between Trump and Clinton, but NBC's latest battleground map shows states likely to vote for Clinton and those leaning toward the Democratic nominee total 274 electoral votes. That slightly surpasses the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House.
Those narrowing polls are to blame for the market selling off, Doll said.
"The market isn't saying, 'I like Hillary and I don't like Donald.' It's saying, 'I like certainty. I don't like uncertainty,' and with Hillary Clinton there's a little more understanding," the chief equity strategist with Nuveen Asset Management told CNBC's " Power Lunch " on Wednesday.
When it comes to positioning, Doll said it is not about being in or out of the market right now.
"It's about what you own and what you don't own," he said.
With the economy doing better and inflation having bottomed, he likes cyclicals right now, although he warned the trade won't last forever.
"Markets are oscillating. That will continue. But we're frustrating the bulls and the bears. Got to own the right stocks and avoid the bad ones," he said.

Official says nearly every 50th resident of Russian Urals city infected — RT News
(2.08/26)

“Almost every 50th resident of Ekaterinburg is infected with HIV,” Tatiana Savinova, the first deputy head of the city’s health department, said during a press conference, adding that outbreaks are considered an epidemic when the infection rate reaches 1 percent – a threshold that has already been surpassed in Ekaterinburg.
The city of 1.5 million people “has reached a generalized stage of the infection,” she said, as cited by TASS. “For us doctors, the HIV epidemic has already started," since so many people are sick in Ekaterinburg. But this did not happen yesterday, she said, while noting that the epidemic has not been announced officially.
The Sverdlovsk region where Ekaterinburg is located tops the list of Russian regions afflicted by HIV. In the first nine months of 2016, the HIV infection rate there stood at 118.2 per 100,000 people.
On the other hand, the Sverdlovsk region also has more people tested for HIV – over 23 percent of the population – while in other regions only 15 people are generally tested, according to Savinova.
The infection is ‘getting older,’ with many people infected now 30-49 years old – and not all are from society’s marginal layer.
“These are not drug addicts or homeless people; they are socially prosperous people. A mass infection took place in the 1990s, when prostitution and drug addiction were wide spread,” Savinova said.
“Ekaterinburg’s health authorities have registered some 26,693 cases of HIV,” the city’s mayor, Evgeny Roizman, said, as cited by RIA Novosti. That amounts 1,826 cases per 100,000 people, or 1.8 percent of the city’s population.
READ MORE: 1 in 10 children carry immunity to AIDS – study
Earlier, in an interview with Ura.ru news portal, Savinova said that the majority of those infected receive antiretroviral drugs, but this is still not enough, and the HIV epidemic is spreading.
“If [the Russian authorities] don’t take action in the next five years, the situation could become absolutely deplorable,” Savinova said.
Savinova drew an example from UNAIDS 90×90×90 strategy aimed at battling HIV and AIDS worldwide, whose targets stipulate that, by 2020, 90 percent of all people living with HIV “will know their HIV status,” 90 percent of all people diagnosed with HIV “will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy,” and 90 percent of all people “receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression.”
On Wednesday, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered that 2.28 billion rubles ($36 million) be provided for treatment of those afflicted by HIV and Hepatitis B and C.
In 2015, after the Russian Health Ministry published a report cautioning that the HIV epidemic in Russia was likely to spiral out of control by 2020, Medvedev urged it to develop a plan to combat HIV and AIDS.
In July of this year, the United Nations AIDS agency (UNAIDS) said that there are some 36.7 million people infected with HIV worldwide, and that number has continued to grow over the past five years.
The agency called for “urgent and immediate” action to prevent the further spread of HIV, as a stream of new cases has brought a steady decline in the number infections to an end. Around two million people now contract the virus on an annual basis, globally.

Project Veritas claims Democratic donor criticized black GOP voters
(2.07/26)

A Democratic donor was allegedly caught on camera criticizing African-Americans who vote Republican.
"So blacks who are helping the other side are seriously f**** in the head," Benjamin Barber allegedly said on a secretly recorded video.
He compared African-Americans who vote Republican to Jews who helped Nazis during the Holocaust.
"They're only helping the enemy who want to destroy them. Maybe thinking that if I help them maybe it'll be different, maybe I'd get off OK," Barber said in the video.
SEE MORE: Fact Check: Black Americans Aren't In The 'Worst Shape' Ever
The undercover video was recorded by Project Veritas , a group that says it exposes corruption in public and private institutions through its investigative journalism. It's worth noting Project Veritas has been accused of deceptive editing in the past.
A spokeswoman for the organization told Snopes the people throwing around those accusations are often the people caught on camera.
Barber's alleged comments were made during a fundraiser for Democratic U. S. Senate candidate Deborah Ross of North Carolina.
Barber is an author and political expert who served as an outside adviser to President Bill Clinton. Barber also has an academic background. He's a distinguished senior fellow at Fordham University and a professor at Rutgers University.
Project Veritas calls Barber a "major Hillary donor. " And while Barber did donate to the Clinton campaign, Federal Election Commission filings show he donated just $775 to Clinton.
After the video was published, some started calling for Democratic politicians to renounce Barber's comments. As of midday Wednesday, Barber had not commented on the video.

Worried About A 'Rigged' Election? Here's How Ballots Are Counted In Arizona
(2.07/26)

Election officials test ballot tabulation machines in Phoenix.

Election officials test ballot tabulation machines in Phoenix.
Ahead of Election Day next week, election officials around the country are checking and double-checking their equipment to make sure the results are calculated accurately.
Those officials are under increased scrutiny this year with Donald Trump and his allies claiming the voting system could be "rigged" in favor of Democrats. So election administrators around the country are opening the doors to the public to show off the multiple layers of safeguards in the ballot-counting process.
Last week, the ballot tabulation center in downtown Phoenix was buzzing during a dry run ahead of election night.
Mock mail-in ballots were sucked in and scanned through one of Maricopa County's nine tabulation machines as officials from the Arizona secretary of state's office watched. State law requires all voting equipment from each county to pass accuracy tests before the general election.

Mock ballots used to test tabulation machines at the Maricopa County Ballot Tabulation Center in Phoenix.
To get a passing grade, the counting machines' results have to match the pre-marked ballots, said Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell.
Maricopa County is Arizona's most populous county and under close scrutiny after voters experienced extremely long lines during the primary election in March.
The county's procedures have evolved considerably since the 1970s when Karen Osborne, who directs elections for Maricopa County, first started working on elections.
"It's no longer just transporting ballots from Point A to Point B with the security of two people. Now it is multiple people doing multiple jobs and each one has to prove the other correct," said Osborne.
Take in-person voting on Election Day, for example. Voters must show ID at the polls, and after they make their selections, the ballots are scanned. A machine records and tallies the votes and saves the paper ballots as a backup. At the end of the night, the ballots and the electronic tally will be transported by separate teams that typically include poll workers from different parties to ballot collection sites around the county.
Once all polling places have delivered their returns to the collection sites, everything is taken downtown and into the glass-enclosed ballot tabulation center that has always been open to the public.
"Everything is run in that room. Nothing is run at the polls, at the polling places. Nothing is run through Wi-Fi, through Internet, so that way these votes are the most secure they can possibly be," said Elizabeth Bartholomew, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County recorder's office.
Poll sign-in books must match the number of votes cast at a precinct, and each county must also hand-count 2 percent of the precincts for one final accuracy check.
Trump's repeated assertions that the vote is rigged against him rankles these elections officials.
"There are so many checks and balances on this system. It continues to prove itself on a daily basis," said Osborne.

Apple is not interested in buying Time Warner at present, people familiar with the thinking at the company told CNBC on Wednesday.
There is no Time Warner bid coming from Apple at this point, sources said, although the regulatory process could last for months, and things could change.
"Combining with AT&T is the natural next step in the evolution of our business and allows us to significantly accelerate our most important strategies," Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes said as the company reported better-than-expected quarterly results on Wednesday .

News Networks Expect Big Numbers as Election Day Nears
(2.07/26)

It's been such a great party at the television news networks that only a crank would mention the morning after.
MSNBC reached its biggest weekday prime-time audience in the network's 20-year history in October. Rivals CNN and Fox News Channel had strong months, too. For about a year, the networks have devoted most of their broadcast time to the presidential race, now about to be decided.
Fox averaged 3.06 million viewers during weekday prime in October, the Nielsen company said. MSNBC had 2.03 million and CNN had 1.99 million. CNN is stronger on the weekends, and moves into second place if Saturday and Sunday are included.
Measuring the full day, it was CNN's most-watched month since 2005. It was also the first time in 15 years that CNN has beaten Fox in both the daytime and evening among the 25-to-54 demographic that much of news advertising sales are based upon.
Fox had its best weekday prime-time number since October 2012, Nielsen said. Friday's news that the FBI is looking into more of Hillary Clinton's emails so energized Fox's conservative audience that the network crushed CNN in the news demo. Recognizing an opportunity, Fox stayed in live programming all weekend to talk about the story.
Yet the sun will come up on the morning of Nov. 9, as surely as it does on the morning after a party to reveal a throbbing headaches and scattered beer bottles. News ratings are sure to tumble as the networks try to figure out something to keep their audiences interested.
The Fox broadcasting network had a strong week, riding interest in the Cubs-Indians World Series. Baseball usually tries to avoid the NFL ratings juggernaut, but with football slumping this year, Sunday's fifth game of the Series beat the Cowboys-Eagles game on NBC by nearly five million viewers head-to-head.
Fox averaged 16.2 million viewers in prime time. CBS had 7.6 million, NBC had 7.5 million, ABC had 5.1 million, Univision had 1.7 million, Telemundo had 1.68 million, the CW had 1.5 million and ION Television had 1.1 million.
ESPN was the week's most popular cable network, averaging 2.76 million viewers in prime-time compared to Fox News Channel's 2.75 million. AMC had 1.45 million, TBS had 1.29 million and MSNBC had 1.286 million.
Once again, the evening news competition was about as close as it can get. ABC's "World News Tonight" averaged 8.19 million viewers last week, NBC's "Nightly News" had 8.15 million and the "CBS Evening News" had 6.8 million.
For the week of Oct. 24-30, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: World Series Game 5: Cleveland at Chicago, Fox, 23.64 million; World Series Game 3: Cleveland at Chicago, Fox, 19.38 million; World Series Game 1: Chicago at Cleveland, Fox, 19.37 million; NFL Football: Philadelphia at Dallas, NBC, 18.02 million; World Series Game 2: Chicago at Cleveland, Fox, 17.39; "World Series Game 5 Pre-Game," Fox, 17.32 million; World Series Game 4: Cleveland at Chicago, Fox, 16.71 million; "The Big Bang Theory," CBS, 14.31 million; "The OT," Fox, 14.084 million; "NCIS," CBS, 14.077 million.
ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co. CBS is owned by CBS Corp. CW is a joint venture of Warner Bros. Entertainment and CBS Corp. Fox is owned by 21st Century Fox. NBC and Telemundo are owned by Comcast Corp. ION Television is owned by ION Media Networks.

American Bison Designated National Mammal of US
(2.06/26)

The American bison has been designated the national mammal of the U. S. during a ceremony at Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota .
Congress approved the designation last spring, and it became official Tuesday, the Rapid City Journal ( http://bit.ly/2faKK2N ) reported. Federal lawmakers have called the bison — North America's largest land animal — the embodiment of American strength, resilience and the nation's pioneer spirit.
The Wildlife Conservation Society worked with worked with Congress for about six years to make the designation happen, said Kelly Aylward, director of the agency's office in Washington.
"It was a long journey, working through the system. But we had great champs in both the House and the Senate," Aylward said, adding that she hopes the designation will help bring more awareness and support to conserving and reviving bison herds across the country.
Tens of millions of bison, also known as buffalo, once thundered across a range stretching from central Canada through the Great Plains and northern Mexico. After a century-long slaughter driven by commercial hunting for buffalo pelts, the population dwindled to a thousand or fewer by the late 1800s.
About 30,000 wild bison now roam the country, with the largest population in Yellowstone National Park. Bison also are scattered in public, tribal and private lands in the U. S. and Canada.
InterTribal Buffalo Council executive director Jim Stone said he hopes greater awareness will also lead to education about the importance of bison to Native Americans.
"It allows for a greater platform for having the conversations and allows for education and outreach and getting people to understand," he said. "There's something that exists in our view of the animal that doesn't exist in (federal systems). "
There had not previously been an official mammal of the United States.
Tuesday's ceremony was scheduled to coincide with Native American Month in November, as well as National Buffalo Day, which is the first Saturday in November.

Christmas Tree Growers: Drought Not Seriously Hurting Crop
(2.06/26)

New England Christmas tree growers say the region's drought is having only minor effects on their crop.
The losses were confined mostly to seedlings planted in the spring, said Jim Horst, executive director of the New Hampshire-Vermont Christmas Tree Association. Unlike mature trees, those planted this year do not have established root systems, experts said.
Horst, who farms in Bennington, Vermont , says he plants 6,000-7,000 trees a year and normally loses 1 or 2 percent of them, but lost 10 to 15 percent this year due to dry conditions.
"That's not catastrophic — it's not what I want to have happen — but it's not catastrophic," he said.
Farmers in some parts of Connecticut lost more than half of their newly planted trees, while others were unaffected, said Kathy Kogut, executive director of the Connecticut Christmas Tree Growers Association.
But customers won't see any difference come December in the supply of fully grown trees, which have weathered the drought, she said.
"A mature tree isn't really affected that much," she said. "If a tree goes through one really hot, dry summer, it still is in great shape for this harvest season. It might leach out a little color in the next season, but with a cold winter and a lot of snow, they'll come right back. "
Jamie Jones, a sixth-generation farmer in Shelton, Connecticut, did some hand-watering this year on his more than 400-acre farm to save some of the young transplants.
"That is something we only have to do, I'd say once every five or 10 years, and you hope you really never have to do," he said. "But it's an inevitability at times. "
Experts said some extra-large trees also may have some drought-related problems because like people, the oldest and youngest trees are most vulnerable to heat.
The dry weather can bring with it other problems, such as funguses and grubs and insects looking for water by burrowing into their roots, Kogut said.
"They are much more likely to die of that than a lack of water," she said.
Officials in New Haven said they harvested a 65-foot tree from a municipal golf course for the city green after their first choice, a donated tree, was found to be too stressed from drought.
Diane Holmes-Brandt said she'll have to replace about half of the 12- to 18-inch transplants on her more than 30-acre farm in York County, Maine, but isn't "freaking out about it. "
"When you're a farmer, you go the way the weather goes," she said. "You take your knocks when you have to, whether it's ice storms, blizzards or droughts or too much rain. "

Drunken trucker crashes while changing pants, police say
(2.06/26)

Vermont state police say a drunken tractor-trailer driver was trying to change his pants while driving when his truck went off a road and rolled on its side.
Police say 62-year-old Meriden, Conn., resident Allen R. Johnson Sr. had a blood alcohol level of 0.21 percent, five times the legal limit for operating a commercial motor vehicle on a public highway.
The truck rolled onto its side on Interstate 89 in Williston on Wednesday morning.
Police say Johnson was standing up between the front cab seats trying to change his pants while driving.
Johnson is charged with driving under the influence and negligent operation. He’s been taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries and can’t be reached for comment. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.

Dad shares heartbreaking photo of cancer-stricken daughter, 4, after she was given weeks to live
(2.06/26)

Survivors often take the spotlight on the topic of children with cancer, but when a British photographer's daughter was given only weeks to live , he sought to capture the heartbreaking reality of the violent disease.

In a black and white photograph, 4-year-old Jessica Whelan from Lancashire, England, is lying on her back, her face distorted in anguish. She has a tube coming out of her right nostril and a single tear streaming down her cheek. Her skin is thin and translucent, and veins appear to protrude out of her chest.
"[The photograph] is not one I wish I had to shoot," her father Andy Whelan told InsideEdition.com, "but it's the one [that] shows the proof of childhood cancer. You can't even imagine what suffering she's in. "

"[The photograph] is not one I wish I had to shoot," her father Andy Whelan told InsideEdition.com, "but it's the one [that] shows the proof of childhood cancer. You can't even imagine what suffering she's in. "
He said his daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma in September of last year, and despite undergoing several different treatments, it became clear that Jessica was rapidly deteriorating.
(Photo: INSIDE EDITION)
Since the photo was taken last week, Andy said his daughter has gotten so thin that the  tumors  have begun poking through her skin.
"There's no fat tissue to hide them. They protrude now," Whelan told InsideEdition.com. He said sometimes, depending on how Jessica sits, they can see the tumors move around inside her body.

"Sometimes you have to face facts," the devastated father said. "No matter what we do, it isn't working. We made the hardest decision that we would rather spend that time at home with Jessica in the best possible health. "

For Jessica, the best part about  stopping treatment  was her hair growing back. Her father said she constantly looks at  pictures of herself  when she was younger, with long blonde hair, and says she can't wait for it to grow back.

"Since it's started growing back, she's become very attached to it," Whelan said. "She doesn't know what she's going through. She's too young to understand. I don't want to put her through anything that's going to distress her further. "
Even so, Jessica is constantly on a high dose of morphine for the pain. Whelan and his partner are also trained to give her sedatives, in case the pain is still too much to manage.
On bad days, Jessica even shoos her 21-month-old brother away.
"It's been hell, honestly," Whelan said. "Several times a day, she's in tears. She's very thin. She has little to no strength. She has very little mobility now, partially because of muscle wastage. "

Emma Watson stuns as Belle in 'Beauty and the Beast' sneak peek
(2.06/26)

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Beauty and the Beast fans got their first real glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old English actress and Dan Stevens, 34, brought the Disney classic to life for the Nov. 11 cover of Entertainment Weekly.
"I can't even think how many times I watched it as a child," Watson said of the 1991 animated version. "I knew all the words by heart. I knew all the songs by heart. "
Watson and Stevens channeled Belle and the Beast's dance to "Beauty and the Beast" for the cover. Costume designer Jacqueline Durran told the magazine it took several tries to get the actress' iconic gown right.
"We tested a lot of yellows. It was just trying to work out the tone. It's still made of silk, but it has a satin finish, so it's less transparent than other organza," she revealed. "There is a cage under some parts of [the skirt]. But mainly it's layers of organza that just give it a lift, for it to have lightness. "
"For Emma, it was important that the dress wouldn't be restrictive and that it had a lot of movement," Durran added. "In Emma's reinterpretation, Belle is an active princess. She did not want a dress that was corseted or that would impede her in any way. "
Disney had announced the live-action remake starring Watson in January 2015. The film will co-star Luke Evans, Emma Thompson , Ewan McGregor , Ian McKellen and Josh Gad, with Chicago helmer Bill Condon as director.
"I was so excited to hear that Disney was thinking about doing a live-action version," Condon said in a behind-the-scenes video in September. "When something is so perfect, why get near it? The answer is technology has caught up to the ideas that were introduced in that movie. "
Beauty and the Beast will open in theaters March 17, 2017. Paige O'Hara, who voiced Belle in the 1991 version, told USA Today in September that Watson is a perfect pick for the live-action remake.

Washington state's background check system needs fix
(2.06/26)

SEATTLE (AP) — Washington state's system for conducting background checks on people trying to buy firearms is fragmented and "specific improvements" are needed, according to a report released by Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson. Under the current system, 260 local law enforcement agencies conduct background checks when someone in their jurisdiction wants to buy a handgun or get a concealed pistol license, the report said. The system is complex and inconsistent and should be streamlined, Ferguson said. The state should ensure that resources are available for timely and complete input of data, he said. People buying rifles and shotguns are checked through a federal database. Ferguson's office conducted an access-to-firearms study in response to an executive order that Gov. Jay Inslee issued in January, "citing the public health implications of gun-related violence, crime, fatalities and injuries," the report said. The order noted that firearm deaths in Washington state exceed motor vehicle deaths, and about 80 percent of gun deaths are suicides. Inslee spokeswoman Tara Lee said Wednesday that the governor has not had a chance to review the report. Several parts of the governor's executive order are in the works, she said. The Office of Financial Management is trying to determine the effectiveness of information sharing between courts, law enforcement and others. The Department of Health is working on a suicide prevention plan. Both state and federal laws prohibit certain people from possessing firearms, but the two don't always line up, the report said. While recent legislation brought Washington in line with federal laws concerning firearms and mental health issues, the state law should be expanded to include a ban on firearms possession for people "who pose a high risk to themselves or others," and the measure should include due-process protections. Washington state doesn't have a law that connects possessing firearms to the use of controlled substances unless using drugs result in a serious crime, the report said. But federal law prohibits firearm possession by an illegal drug user or addict. "The legalization of recreational and medical marijuana in Washington and other states poses a challenge for both potential gun buyers and the states," Ferguson said. A federal appeals court and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have sided with federal law, the report said. "Officials in Washington should appeal to Congress and the federal ADF to allow legal access to firearms for individuals whose use or possession of marijuana is legal under state law," Ferguson recommended. The state should develop a system that allows law enforcement agencies to share information about people who tried to buy a gun but failed the background check, the report said. Those gun shoppers could face prosecution, he said. Washington should also improve its system for restoring the right to possess firearms for certain people who have lost that right, the report said. The unsafe storage of firearms has resulted in death or injury, especially involving children, the report said. In Washington, about 24,000 youths live in homes with unlocked and loaded firearms, the report said. Ferguson recommended a law that creates a criminal penalty for gun owners who don't safely secure a firearm, if the owner knows it can be accessed by a minor.

Emma Watson secretly leaves her favourite book in London tube stations
(2.06/26)

As well as enjoying a successful acting career, she's also become known for her work with the United Nations and starting up a feminist book club, Our Shared Shelf. And Emma Watson , 26, chose a novel way to share the joys of one of her favourite books - the late Maya Angelou's Mom & Me & Mom - by hiding copies of the tome at different stations on the London tube network on Tuesday. The actress filmed herself hiding copies of the novel - each with a handwritten note - along the escalator support beams at St John's Wood station, shortly before she was also spotted carrying out the task at Oxford Circus. Scroll down for video  Taking to Faecbook soon afterwards, she announced: 'I've been hiding copies of Mom & Me & Mom for Books on the Underground on the tube today! See if you can find one tomorrow! #OurSharedShelf.'  Emma's actions were part of the Books on the Underground campaign, which encourages people to read books on the tube - and share the ones they enjoy. Books on the Underground director Cordelia Oxley said: 'The campaign with Emma Watson is perfect as it promotes her feminist book club Our Shared Shelf, and also reminds people to look around for a hidden book when they're on the tube!'=  She added: 'It was Emma's idea to be a Book Fairy for the day, and I think she did an amazing job.' In September, the star cheered the possibility of the US electing its first female President in Hillary Clinton during a conversation about gender equality. Her words came on the night that Edgar Ramirez questioned a 'macho' world that teaches boys to suppress emotions and dominate women. The actors roused up a glitzy and high-powered crowd at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan  to promote U. N. Women's HeForShe initiative to draw men into the fight for global gender equality. Emma, the U. N. Women Global Goodwill Ambassador, drew whoops and cheers when she referenced the possibility of the former First Lady winning the US  presidential elections. She said: 'I don't know if I would have believed you if you had told me two years ago before I made my HeforShe speech that we might have the first female president of the United States.'  The actress also celebrated the fact that Britain has a woman Prime Minister in Theresa May. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finnish President Sauli Niinisto also spoke. Emma has been a passionate UN Women Goodwill Ambassador since 2014. She was also guest of honour at the 71st Annual United Nations General Assembly earlier in the day, where she delivered a passionate speech to mark UN Women releasing its first HeForShe Impact 10X10X10 University Parity Report. The star, a staunch campaigner for the HeForShe campaign aiming to promote gender equality, took to the podium to discuss the new developments. The new report explains the commitments made by 10 universities across the world to focus on gender equality on campus. The universities, which include the University of Oxford in England, Sciences Po in Paris and Georgetown University in the United States, have pledged to take a zero-tolerance stance on sexual assault, to lose the gender gap in administration and academia, and to provide briefings on gender issues for faculty and students.

Girl's note to her mother about her Halloween candy is absolutely hilarious
(2.06/26)

Every year, late night host Jimmy Kimmel has called on parents to lie to their kids saying he stole their Halloween candy -- and the results are hysterical. One 12-year-old girl, however, is ahead of the curve.
Reddit user derpalamadingdong shared a note that her daughter wrote next to Whopper candies:
"I got busted stealing my daughter's Halloween candy," she said.

The note read:
Needless to say, her daughter wasn't playing around. The Reddit user even tried getting some candy because she "gave her daughter life. " The girl responded, "You are an adult and have a job. You can buy Reese's. I am 12 and unemployed. The Reese's are MINE. "
Other parents chimed in saying it was not stealing; it was merely a "mom tax. " From the likes of it, though, this 12-year-old would not stand for it.

Telescope reveals amazing pillars in star-breeding ground
(2.06/26)

By Marcia Dunn, Associated Press
Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016 | 9:11 a.m.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A peek into a distant star-breeding ground has uncovered scenes worthy of a watercolor master.
Astronomers on Wednesday released majestic images of pillars of gas and dust in the Carina Nebula, some 7,500 light-years away. The observations were taken by the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile.
The pictures rank right with the Hubble Space Telescope's famous Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula, an image now 21 years old. Scientists say these new images appear to be pillars of destruction, in which massive new stars destroy the clouds of gas from which they were born. They do that by blasting out radiation. Scientists were able to see the effect of this so-called photo evaporation in the dissipating pillars.

MacBook Pro: Is Apple too futuristic with its new products?
(2.06/26)

Apple has always often been seen as the leader in consumer technology, running ahead of its competitors in combining function and industrial design into its products.
Its new MacBook Pro run along the same lines by eliminating familiar features such as function buttons and the SD card slot. A version of the MacBook Pro will boast a touch bar in place of the usual function keys on top of keyboards that supports scrolling and a fingerprint sensor for purchasing. The iPhone 7 released in September got rid of headphone jacks.
But the futuristic designs have left some users and critics wondering if Apple has leaped too far ahead of user habits.
"Apple is trying to return to its old habit of dragging us forward into the future like a wild-eyed inventor, but this time it might have cut a little too deep into present-day functionality while trying to promote tomorrow’s technology," Vlad Savov wrote about the new MacBook Pro for The Verge. "If its future is going to be characterized by such hostile decisions as the removal of the headphone jack from the iPhone or the scything off of the beloved MagSafe and SD card slot from laptops, maybe Apple isn’t your best friend anymore. Can this company continue to claim it’s looking out for its users’ best interests while discarding some of their most necessary tools? "
As Mr. Savov points out, the new MacBook Pro has no SD card slot, leaving professional photographers – a  loyal Apple product audience – stuck between forking out up to $50 to buy a cable to connect cameras to the laptop or relying on faulty wireless transfer apps. The new USB port also demands the purchase of USB adapter and specific dongles to connect the laptop to projectors, Ethernet ports, and iPhones. Only two USB-C ports are available for charging, data and video output, with higher-end models getting four ports.
However, there will still be headphone jacks in this computer.
"The new MacBook Pro is as beautiful and desirable as ever, but using it is alienating to anyone living in the present. I agree with Apple’s vision of the future. I’m just not buying it today," Savov wrote.
Another reviewer at CNet calls the new MacBook Pro a " want, not a need, " while PC Magazine Lab lead analyst Joel Santo Domingo wrote that with a nearly all-new system installed in the laptop, "you'll have to either update all of your old peripherals or carry a handful of adapters with y ou. "
The same complaints over having to buy new wireless headphones or inconvenience over limited ports were heard over the iPhone 7 that did away with headphone jacks in favor of "ushering in what it hopes is a tangle-free era of wireless listening, " as The Guardian wrote.
Being a pioneer, however, means causing disruption – an approach familiar to Apple. Phil Schiller, Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing, is confident of their products, saying that early orders for the pro notebook has exceeded previous models, as reported by Apple Insider.
"We know we made good decisions about what to build into the new MacBook Pro and that the result is the best notebook ever made, but it might not be  right for everyone on day one ," Mr. Schiller told The Independent. "That's okay, some people felt that way about the first iMac and that turned out pretty good. "

Putin Pushing to Block Microsoft Products in Russia
(2.06/26)

Russian President Vladimir Putin is now taking aim at Microsoft in hopes of eliminating the United States-based company's software from state-controlled companies and government offices, according to a senior U. S. intelligence official.
The Kremlin wants to remove all foreign software and replace Microsoft products with Russian-created ones, while it braces against retaliation from the United States after months of hackers' attacks that Washington says Putin authorized to influence the current election, reports NBC News.
Russia also hopes to block the business networking site LinkedIn , which Microsoft is purchasing. According to the intelligence official, Putin is moving against Microsoft because it is easy for him to convince Russians the company is involved with the U. S. intelligence community, a claim Microsoft denies.
"We don't spy on anyone," Dominic Carr, Microsoft's general manager for public affairs, told NBC News. "We don't work with any government to spy on others, and we never would. We make sure governments can review our software to confirm for themselves that our products are secure, and we've worked hard to increase privacy protections for customers including by suing the US government four times. "
However, it's obvious the Kremlin and Putin are "stepping up their game," Fiona Hill, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution told NBC News. "It is a signal that the Russians really mean business now about nationalizing the internet and making sure they can create their own secure content. "
Russian hackers, though, have used Microsoft products while waging cyber attacks. According to a U. S. Homeland Security document obtained by NBC News, Russian hackers used Microsoft Office attachment when shutting down Ukraine's electrical grid last year.
Further, intelligence officials say banning Microsoft would likely be limited because the company's products are integrated into Russia's IT infrastructure itself.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said he is not surprised Russia is targeting Microsoft, as the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said he's not surprised Russia is singling out Microsoft.
"Putin as an old KGB officer views the world as a zero-sum game between Russia and the U. S.," Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said. "Whatever is good for the U. S. is bad for Russia and vice versa. "
Also, the move allows the Kremlin to tell its population not to trust American technology, and to once again feed into Russian hostility and paranoia towards America and its products," Schiff told NBC News.

(2.04/26)

The Victoria Secret Fashion show is one of the biggest events on the calendar, so it's no wonder Jasmine Tookes and Josephine Skriver want to be in tip top shape. The two ladies were seen participating in the Victoria's Secret Train Like an Angel event, which took place on Wednesday. Though it didn't look like much training was going on, the women seemed to work up a bit of a sweat showing off their toned tummies. Scroll down for video   The models were seen engaging workouts as they donned the iconic VS active-wear. Jasmine showed off her lean and toned body in a pair of purple workout leggings and black trainers. She added a monochrome sports bra which read 'Victoria Sport across the bust.' The model tied back her long brunette locks into a sporty ponytail as she donned very minimal make-up. Josephine showed off her equally impressive body in a pair of black leggings with writing scribbled down the sides of her legs. She wore a paisley printed sports bra that featured three straps across the bust area, holding the bra together. She tied back her blonde tresses into a high ponytail to match Jasmine. The beauty also opted for a make-up free look as she showed off her piercing blue eyes. The duo modeled and posed beside one another with weights, as they were also seen engaging in some exercises. At one point the pair looked to be in friendly competition as they were seen in plank position whilst stared at one another. Lily Aldridge, dressed in a camouflage outfit, was seen arriving to the event a little later than the girls. The Victoria's Secret Show is one of the biggest events and the musical line up is always incredible and they've just recently announced who will be performing this year. Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd will be joining the Angels in Paris, where the show will be taped on November 30.

Meijer getting rid of plus-sized clothing from their 230 stores
(2.04/26)

A major retailer is attempting to lure in shoppers by scrapping the plus-size departments in its stores - and instead, integrating all sizes onto every rack. Meijer is hoping to alleviate the stigma of being a plus-size shopper by ending the segregation between the regular and large-sized clothing. Already in practice in 15 stores since June, the Michigan-based retailer will roll it out in all of its 230 stores by early 2017. By then, all apparel in sizes ranging from XS to XXXL will be on display on the same racks - and at no extra cost for larger sizes. Usually, stores keep plus-sized clothing in a separate section near the back and don't offer larger sizes in as many styles. In a news release, Meijer said it is 'proud to create a shopping experience based on trends, not size.' Peter Whitsett, executive vice president of merchandising and marketing, added: 'Over the past few years, we’ve placed an increased focus on bringing more on-trend, affordable apparel to our customers. 'This fresh approach to shopping represents a continuation of that commitment, giving our customers the trends they’re looking for, regardless of what size they wear.'  As part of the change, Meijer is also rolling out equal pricing for all women’s apparel items, no longer charging more for plus sizes despite the higher production costs.  'Plus-size apparel is often priced higher than missy or women’s sizes,' said Annette Repasch, group vice president of softlines for Meijer.  'We believe all our customers deserve to pay the same price for the same trends, regardless of size.' There are no plans to raise existing clothing prices, WZZM reports.

Trump Slams Media in Miami — Crowd Chants ‘CNN Sucks!’
(1.56/26)

Trump called integrity in journalism an important issue, but then denounced the media as “dishonest” and cited a New York Post piece by Michael Goodwin.
“Another important issue for Americans his integrity in journalism,” Trump said. “These people are among the most dishonest people I have ever met, spoken to, done business with. These are the most dishonest people. There has never been dishonesty – there has never been dishonesty like we have seen in this election. There has never been anywhere near the media dishonesty like we have seen in this election. Don’t worry, they won’t spin the cameras to show the massive crowds. They won’t do that. The very talented Michael Goodwin of the New York Post just wrote today that 2016 presidential race will mark the low watermark of journalism that is worthy, if you think of it, of the First Amendment. Never before have so many media organizations, old and new, abandoned all pretense of fairness to take sides and try to pick a president. It is unbelievable. Honestly. for instance, a great story given out to the media they’ll make it look as bad as possible – as bad possible.
Trump remarks led the crowd to break out into a chant of “CNN sucks,” to which Trump responded by pointing out the dismal earnings figures for The New York Times.
“So sad – parenthetically and very sadly, earnings for The New York times are down 97 percent this year they just announced. I feel so badly for them. Ninety-seven percent, oh they’re doing great. And they tell you who to vote for — who to vote for, they want crooked Hillary. This isn’t about me. It is about all of you and our magnificent movement to make America great again and talking about it all over the world.”

Trump lacks nuance, but speaks 'modicum of truth' about black America
(1.29/26)

Donald Trump has claimed that African-Americans should vote for him because their communities are in economic disarray, and while many have dismissed his "what do you have to lose? " pitch as cynical and misleading, the Republican nominee has occasionally recognized real problems, experts said.
Building on these comments during the presidential debates, Trump added that African-Americans "are living in hell," and reiterated that "they have no education" and "they have no jobs. "
Experts told CNBC Trump's analysis contains a grain of truth, but totally lacks in necessary nuance and historical context.
"It is absolutely false to say that things are the worst that they have ever been," said Valerie Wilson, director of the Economic Policy Institute's program on race, ethnicity and the economy.
"We know that there are definitely communities in this country with excessively high rates of unemployment and poverty for African-Americans," she added. "But that by no means can be applied to the African-American experience in general. "
But that's not to say the economic picture for African-Americans isn't lagging and deserving of focused attention.
In comparison to other demographics, Wilson notes, African-American communities face a racial disparity "that doesn't seem to change. "
In recent decades, racial achievement gaps have remained stubbornly wide. Black unemployment has persistently been twice the national average and income inequality has actually widened, Wilson said, citing her own studies.
"We find that these wage gaps have actually gotten larger over the last 40 years," she said. "A big driving factor for that trend is racial discrimination, and that is something that we are less willing to address in a frank and straightforward manner. "
However, Wilson also said that black Americans' economic reality mirrors the rest of the country in that it ranges from people with advanced degrees to those who did not graduate high school. She argued that a framework more nuanced than Trump's would acknowledge this kind of economic diversity without ignoring racial inequality.
In fact, Wilson said economic performance for black people is "without a doubt" improving, noting that the last few years have offered African-Americans a strengthening labor market.
Government data supports Wilson's statement. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the black unemployment rate has been cut in half since 2011 from its post-recession high of 16 percent to a just over 8 percent today.
Wilson recommends that if lawmakers care about addressing the economic issues black people face, they should continue to push to get the American economy to full employment and vigorously enforce antidiscrimination laws. While working to ameliorate racial inequality, she said, it's important to remember that African-Americans are not monolithic.
Its this attention to nuance that's severely lacking in Trump's message on race, experts said.
Eddie Glaude Jr., the chair of Princeton's department of African-American studies, said Trump's statements on race occasionally contain some accuracy.
"Part of what is confusing is that there is a modicum of truth in [Trump's] description of the state of certain communities in black America," he told CNBC.
Those communities to which Trump regularly points include places like Baltimore, where in 2013, the unemployment rate for black men between the ages of 20 and 24 was 37 percent, according to the U. S. Census Bureau.
Earlier this year, Trump said, "Fifty-eight percent and even 59 percent of African-American youth has no job. " And while economists have dismissed his claims as hyperbolic — the rate is actually more like 25 percent — disproportionately high unemployment remains a crucial issue for African-Americans.
But it is Trump's frequent, controversial comments such as his endorsement of mass deportation, stop and frisk, and bans on Muslims that undercut the truth in his remarks on race, Glaude said, claiming that the Republican nominee is discussing these issues "in bad faith. "
That is, Glaude (along with many pundits) said that when Trump talks about African-Americans, he isn't really speaking to black people, but rather "to white voters trying to assure them that he is not the racist that they take him to be. "
Still, Glaude said, the problems Trump highlights should not be ignored.
"Trump is trading in stereotypes and generalizations," Glaude said. "And because of the messenger, we are not really taking seriously what is happening in some of our communities. "

Trump Vowing to Cancel Global Warming Payments to U. N.
(1.14/26)

Donald Trump is reiterating his long-stated campaign pledge if elected he will " cancel billions in global warming payments " to the United Nations, saying Wednesday the money is better spent at home.
At a rally in Florida, the GOP nominee outlined the case for his election Nov. 8, the Daily Caller reported .
"We will also cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations, and use that money to support America's vital environmental infrastructure and natural resources," he told supporters.
Trump has been lashing out at the U. N. global climate accord since last spring, though his vow to cancel the mandate has run into opposition, including from the former U. S. special envoy for climate change, who insists the United States "has no power" to do so .
The GOP nominee tweeted in 2012 the "concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U. S. manufacturing non-competitive. "
He later claimed he was kidding, and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told CNN in September that Trump believes "climate change is naturally occurring," but the causes are not man-made.

All-Ireland talks on Brexit impact being held in Dublin
(1.13/26)

Politicians from Northern Ireland and the Republic will meet in Dublin later to discuss the implications of Brexit for the island.
Representatives from business and farming organisations, as well as civic society, will also attend the talks.
However, neither the DUP nor the Ulster Unionist Party will be at the conference.
The All Island Civic Dialogue on Brexit is taking place at the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham.
Taoiseach (prime minister) Enda Kenny wants to hear from those affected by the UK's decision to leave the European Union and to map out the challenges posed and their potential impact on different parts of society.
Although unionist parties will not be present, Alliance leader Naomi Long and party colleague Stephen Farry will be there.
DUP leader Arlene Foster has dismissed the gathering as a grand-standing exercise for what she calls "remoaners", but said real business could be done at the North South Ministerial Council meeting later this month.
The Irish government has agreed with her about the importance of that meeting, but views Wednesday's conference as a chance for those affected by Brexit to have their say before departure negotiations are expected to start formally by next April.
The Republic of Ireland is one of 27 countries that the EU will be negotiating on behalf of, but it is the only member with a land border with the UK.
The Irish government has concerns about:
Although the EU has said no negotiations can begin until Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty has been triggered, senior sources in Dublin say the heads of all the civil service departments in the Republic and London have met in recent weeks to "tease out and explore" issues, without engaging in side-negotiations.
The sources say that Michel Barnier, who is heading the European Commission's team, is aware of this and has a strong sense of the problems posed for border areas.
In advance of this month's North-South Ministerial Council meeting, Mr Kenny has asked all his ministers to have advance talks with their Northern Ireland counterparts.
In the Dáil (parliament), he has also said he would like Northern Ireland to have an agreed position by the time of the NSMC meeting.
Dublin believes there "are encouraging signs" that the DUP and Sinn Féin, despite their different Brexit positions, are working closely together towards the agreed position but that there is still a way to go.

Cristiano Ronaldo poses with CR7 blanket ahead of Real Madrid's clash vs Legia Warsaw
(1.12/26)

Cristiano Ronaldo has invited his fans of Instagram to 'spend the holidays' with him... by investing in one of his £105 'CR7' Christmas blankets. The Real Madrid superstar took to social media platform Instagram to share a picture of himself lounging across a blanket, in the red and green colours of his native Portugal, from his brand new range. Relaxing barefoot on his bed Ronaldo instructed his 80million followers to 'visit CR7blankets' to purchase his 'soft and plush' products. The blankets come in three alternate colourways, while a fourth depicts a large scale portrait of Ronaldo's face. His expansion into blankets is nothing new for Ronaldo, who regularly puts his iconic 'CR7' label to a host of different products and ventures. Ronaldo's brand arsenal is already expansive and includes a host of fashion items, shirts and underwear, along with his own personal museum and a recently developed 'CR7' hotel in Lisbon. Back to the football and the Portuguese superstar and his fellow Galacticos are preparing to face Legia Warsaw in the Champions League group stages. Madrid can qualify for the last 16 of the competition with a win over the Polish side; the same team they demolished 5-1 in their last European outing. In a rare occurrence Ronaldo was unable to get himself on the score sheet in the rout, with fellow winger Gareth Bale stealing the show with a sublime performance. The upcoming match will have added sentimental value for Ronaldo, who has invited along Polish youngster David Pawlaczyc along to spectate. Pawlaczyc, a life long Real Madrid fan, suffered a terrible road accident in 2013 and was roused from a coma only after listening to the audio from one of Ronaldo's goals. In March 2014, the Real Madrid striker invited Pawlaczyc to one of the VIP boxes at the Santiago Bernabéu to see the Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund. But this time around, after making a six hour drive to Warsaw with his family, Pawlaczyc is able to realise his dream of seeing Ronaldo play in his native Poland. Though Pawlaczyc will be watching from the executive seats the atmosphere inside the Polish Army Stadium will be slightly strange... due to the fact it will be empty. Madrid will face Legia behind closed doors due to crowd trouble and violence at previous matches, most prominently against Borussia Dortmund.

Analysis: Reality Check Shows Clinton's Path to 270 Is Stable
(1.12/26)

There's plenty of hand wringing and stomach churning in Democratic households this week as polls show the presidential race tightening in its final days — and the Hillary Clinton campaign is making a series of moves that some see as panicked desperation.
A week out from the election, the campaign has started running ads in Colorado and Virginia, states it long ago felt comfortable leaving, and went on air for the first time in other, bluer states like New Mexico.
Meanwhile, campaign officials have seemed unusually agitated in a series of press calls and statements responding to FBI Director James Comey's bombshell on Clinton's email server. And after pledging to close the race on a positive note, the campaign rolled out a tough new ad highlighting women who claim Donald Trump sexually assaulted them, while reintroduced former beauty queen Alicia Machado.
"Make no mistake, they are in panic," Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Monday.
But the reality is that Clinton's chances of winning 270 electoral votes have hardly changed from last week. While Democrats' agitation is palpable, it's driven more by anger than panic at what they see as unprecedented and appalling meddling by outside forces in the election.
FiveThirtyEight 's election forecast still gives Clinton a 71 percent chance of winning, while the New York Times' Upshot model gives her an 88 percent chance, and Princeton University 's model pegs her likelihood at 97 percent.
Those numbers could fall, of course, as the impact of Comey's move is only just now being revealed in polls and early vote data. But so far, the effect has been marginal at most and muddled at least.
A panicking campaign would be moving money from one state to another, or pulling out of states entirely, but campaign officials say the blue state ads are more a product of surplus cash and a desire to help Democrats down-ballot.
Clinton has not changed her travel schedule and will still head Wednesday to Arizona, a red state aides believe they have an even shot of winning.
In the last 72 hours, the campaign raised $11.3 million in online donations, according to an aide, the most at any point since the Democratic National Convention.
Their confidence is rooted in the fact that while Clinton has multiple paths to 270 and a wide margin of error, Trump needs almost everything to go perfectly for him Tuesday in order to run the table of almost all of the key tossup states.
"If Hillary wins Florida, she'll be next president of the United States," Bill Clinton said while campaigning Tuesday in the state, which is essentially tied. The same is likely true for Ohio and North Carolina. And Clinton could still make it to the White House by losing both and instead winning Pennsylvania and one other state, like New Hampshire, two places where she has lead in every single poll since July.
Meanwhile, on every metric typically used to judge campaigns, from surrogates, to TV ad spending, to cash-on-hand, Clinton is well ahead of Trump.
Clinton has what Democrats say is the most sophisticated get-out-the-vote effort in history, while Trump's campaign is still
And we can't say they didn't warn us. Clinton and her campaign spent much of last week reminding supporters that they expected polls to tighten and that Donald Trump could still win.
Robby Mook, Clinton's Twitter-phobic campaign manager, just
"We've seen polls tighten since the third debate and we expect things to get even closer before Election Day," he said two days before the campaign was blindsided by the Comey news.
David Plouffe, the former Obama strategist, has become many Democrats' anti-bed-wetter-in chief this cycle, with his reassuringly bullish projections of Clinton's chances.
"We saw in 2012 our leads after the Mitt Romney's 47 percent moment got really large, but they were never going to stay that big and people panicked back then," he said at the first Clinton-Trump debate, when Democrats were having an earlier bout of agita. "Democrats should focus on turning out the vote and turning off their computers. "
On Sunday, Plouffe said he still thought Clinton was "rock solid" to garner over 300 electoral votes.
Still, that doesn't' mean Democrats are not perturbed. They are.
They could almost taste an easy, uplifting victory just a few days ago that would serve as severe repudiation of Trumpism and come with the kind of long coattails that could ensure Clinton's presidency was not merely one long war with a GOP-controlled Congress.
Now, the possibility for a presidential landslide may have evaporated, potentially even along with Democrats' best chance at retaking the Senate for the rest of this decade.
eam Clinton feels it's been stolen from them through unpredictable interventions they views as undemocratic and one-sided, both from Comey and the Russian hackers who allegedly stole thousands of sensitive emails from campaign chair John Podesta and released them online.
Meanwhile, Democrats are practically tearing their hair out over the fact that while they, again, take on water from an email scandal that has dogged them for more than a year and half, they're running against someone many Americans say is unqualified and who seems to have a new scandal every day.
One Democratic nervous operative said he's been trying to head the wise words of Luke Skywalker — or at least Mark Hamill the actor who played, him — who told followers: "Don't panic — VOTE! "

Shooting in Zodiac Park in Memphis leaves girl dead and five injured
(1.11/26)

A 16-year-old schoolgirl was killed and four other teenage girls wounded after a bandana-wearing gang launched a mass shooting attack in a park. Alana Tello was shot dead when six suspects, all wearing red bandanas, opened fire on the group of friends who had gathered at Zodiac Park in Memphis on Tuesday. Four of her female friends and one boy were wounded - with three suffering 'critical' injuries' - following the attack which is thought to have stemmed from an argument over a cell phone. Alana's heartbroken family have paid tribute to the schoolgirl - who was killed days before her 17th birthday. Her mother, Cristy, wrote on Facebook, saying: 'Please pray Alana has been shot in Memphis. 'My heart is so heavy! Please keep us in your prayers also my brother and sister in law.' She later wrote: 'I love you baby girl!! I miss you so much. God why they take my baby? Please pray they find who murdered my babygirl.' Alana's cousin added: 'Very heavy heart tonight as my sweet cousin passed away tonight. Love you, cuz. Fly high. Alana Tello.' Dozens also took to social media to say they are 'praying' for the youngsters who were injured. Friends of the victims revealed that most of the teenagers at the park were from Horn Lake High School and had gathered at Zodiac Park for a fight. Police said the suspects fled the park in a tan two-door vehicle and said the shooting may have stemmed from an ongoing argument. Witnesses have described hearing '15 to 17 shots' during the attack in the park. Three of the victims were taken to Regional One in a critical condition, but their conditions have been down-graded. A fourth victim was taken by private vehicle to Baptist DeSoto, but was transferred to Regional One. A fifth victim was taken to Le Bonheur by a private vehicle and is listed as critical. Alana's best friend, Mckenzie Holland, accompanied her to hospital and posted, saying: 'Everyone keep my very best friend in y'alls prayers. in the hospital. love you' great friend' who was 'loved by many people'. Another friend, Maddie Shea, posted a tribute, saying: 'I cannot begin to explain how heavy my heart is.  'I've watched you grow up and we grew so close and I love you so much Alana Marie. I cannot tell you how much I will miss you and all of the great times we had: sleep overs, bonfires, church, movie nights, and everything else.  'Rest easy on the clouds above. I love you sweet girl and will forever miss you.'  Lilly Lyons posted: 'I can't believe this. I was just with Alana last night and now I'll never get to see her again.'   A Desoto County Schools representative released a statement, saying: 'We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic loss of a Horn Lake High School student in this off-campus incident in Memphis.  'She was a good student who was highly regarded by her teachers. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, the students and staff at Horn Lake High School, and our community.  'School counselors are available to students daily; however, additional support staff are at the school today to assist students and staff.'

Fenerbahce manager says Jose Mourinho is 'not a magician'
(1.10/26)

Dick Advocaat says Jose Mourinho is an unbelievable manager but "not a magician". The Fenerbahce manager is keen to capitalise on his counterpart's teething problems at Manchester United after the Portuguese's arrival brought an injection of excitement at Old Trafford after three frustrating years under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. United started superbly but have only managed to impress in patches since their winning run ended, meaning they arrive in Turkey off the back of a frustrating goalless draw at home to Burnley. Fenerbahce boss Advocaat could not believe United failed to convert any of their 37 attempts on Saturday and has no doubt it is merely a matter of time until Mourinho's side clicks. "This man proved himself in all countries," the former Sunderland and Rangers boss said ahead of Thursday's Europa League meeting. "If you see how many prizes he has won, that is almost unbelievable. He is not a magician. "There are so many good players at United, which is good on one hand and on the other hand it makes it difficult to find the real right line-up. "But it is a matter of time that he knows that, but quality-wise if you have six players like Manchester United it is still difficult to find - is it (Anthony) Martial, is it (Marcus) Rashford, is it (Wayne) Rooney? It's quite difficult. "But I am sure that they will play for the first place, no doubts about that, and they will start winning games as well, and (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic will start scoring as well because that man knows how to score. "At the moment not everything is going the right way, but see how many chances they have got last Saturday. "If you don't create chances, that's a different story but they had so many chances last Saturday it was unbelievable they did not score. "There is no reason to be worried about the team and about the manager. " Advocaat witnessed first-hand just how clinical United can be when things click into place a fortnight ago. Paul Pogba's brace along with efforts from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard secured a 4-1 win at Old Trafford, with Robin van Persie netting a consolation at his old stomping ground. The Dutchman netted twice in Sunday's 5-0 league win against Karabukspor and is expected to feature again on Thursday evening, when Advocaat is expecting around 45,000 fans at the imposing Sukru Saracoglu Stadium for the Group A clash. "We always go out in a game to win that game, play out of an organisation that we can stop the opponent, like United, and when we have the opportunity to attack, we will attack," the Fenerbahce boss said. "But we play against Manchester United. I told you before this is a great team with great players, so in that way we controlled the first half hour (at Old Trafford) because of the way we played. "If we did it differently, then they have too much quality to punish you and they did it in five minutes with two penalties and the game was over. "Tomorrow in a home game is different, with the fans behind us. We have seen against Feyenoord that can help. "

'We must be critical of ourselves': Luis Suarez unhappy with Barcelona's second half performance in defeat by Manchester City
(1.10/26)

'In the first half, we could've scored more goals, but we're aware that opponents also played [football],' said Suarez. 'Nonetheless, I believe we must be critical of ourselves for how we played in the second half. 'In the second half, they changed their pattern of play a bit and the manner in which they pressed us.  'We must draw conclusions from the good and bad things. After they went 2-1 up, we had a very good chance to make it 2-2, but 3-1 made things very difficult for us.  'They had to play for their fans and needed the win, but that was from the first minute and we started the game very well.' Barcelona have little time to lick the wounds inflicted upon them by their old master. On Sunday, Luis Enrique's men travel to face Jorge Sampaoli's Sevilla, who have started the season excellently. Suarez is keen to see a reaction from his team-mates at the Sanchez Pizjuan and called on his cohorts to 'forget about' their humbling in Manchester.  'The result mustn't affect us at all. Players are here to perform in every game, more so at a club like Barca.' added Suarez. 'We lost, but now we'll forget about it and think about Sevilla, which is a very important game.'

Facebook reports sharp rise in revenue, shares dip
(1.08/26)

By Rishika Sadam and Dustin Volz Nov 2 (Reuters) - Facebook Inc on Wednesday posted earnings growth that beat Wall Street's high expectations as the world's biggest online social network said daily mobile users exceeded the one billion mark for the first time. Its shares were down 1.7 percent, in after-hours trading, at $124.97. Mobile ads accounted for 84 percent of Facebook's total advertising revenue of $6.82 billion in the third quarter that ended Sept. 30, compared with 78 percent a year earlier. The company is also reaping the benefits of a big push into video, both on Facebook itself and on the Instagram photo app. "We're making progress putting video first across our apps and executing our 10 year technology roadmap," Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement. Facebook reported a 55.8 percent rise in quarterly revenue, to $7.01 billion, beating analysts' average estimate of $6.92 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Facebook said about 1.79 billion people were using its site monthly as of Sept. 30, up 16 percent from a year earlier. The strong numbers come as Facebook has struggled in recent months to combat allegations that it unfairly removes certain content on its service, and news in September that the company had for years overestimated how it calculates the average time users spend watching video. But investors appear optimistic Facebook will continue to grow revenue through its aggressive expansion of mobile and video advertising. More than 90 percent of Facebook's users access the social network through mobile devices, and the company now boasts daily average mobile users of 1.09 billion, up 22 percent from last year. With the company's photo-sharing app Instagram and messaging apps WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger facing increasing competition from Snapchat, Facebook has been adding features to keep users hooked and attract advertisers. The company said in September that Instagram's advertising base had more than doubled to more than 500,000 in six months. Instagram had about 500 million users as of June. (http://bit.ly/2f1SJfP) Facebook took its attempts to boost user engagement to the workplace last month, launching a subscription-based enterprise version of its mobile app. The company also launched Marketplace, a feature that allows people to buy and sell items locally, and has been focusing more on video to better compete with Google's YouTube. Facebook is expected to generate about $22 billion in mobile ad revenue in 2016, according to research firm eMarketer, up about 67 percent from 2015. Total ad revenue is forecast to rise to about $26 billion, an increase of about 52 percent. However, there are questions about how long Facebook can continue to boost mobile ad revenue, given limits to the number of ads that Facebook can show each user. Net income attributable to Facebook shareholders jumped to $2.37 billion, or 82 cents per share, in the quarter from $891 million, or 31 cents per share, in the third quarter of 2015. Excluding items, the company earned $1.09 per share. On that basis, analysts had expected 97 cents per share. Up to Wednesday's close of $127.17, Facebook's shares had risen 21.5 percent since the start of the year.
