Nearly 24 hours after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went head-to-head for the third and final presidential debate, they found themselves on the same stage again — only this time, for lighthearted ribbing. Every four years, the Al Smith dinner, an annual fundraiser for Catholic charities, offers a moment of levity and self-deprecation at the tail end of grueling campaigns. Trump’s sense of humor and brash attitude didn’t quite translate to the white-tie gala meant to raise money for children in poverty throughout New York.

Three men accused of plotting to bomb Somali immigrants in western Kansas were only preparing to defend themselves in the event of "massive social upheaval" as they accumulated firearms and ammunition, a defense attorney said Friday. The arguments were the first glimpse into the unfolding defense strategy for three men prosecutors say where conspiring to detonate truck bombs at an apartment complex where 120 Somali immigrants live in the meatpacking town of Garden City. Prosecutors contend Stein was the leader of a militia group called The Crusaders, though his attorney, Ed Robinson, denies his client even knows of such a group.
BENGUET, Philippines/HONG KONG (Reuters) - Typhoon Haima, the strongest storm to hit the Philippines in three years, killed at least 12 people and inundated vast tracts of rice and corn fields, officials in Manila said on Friday, before it took aim at Hong Kong. Eight of the victims were from the Cordillera region, said Ricardo Jalad, chief of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, citing reports the agency received from provincial officials. In Cagayan alone, where the super typhoon made landfall late on Wednesday with destructive 225 kph (140 mph) winds and heavy rain, between 50,000-60,000 hectares of rice fields were flattened and flooded, said the provincial governor Manuel Mamba.

First lady Michelle Obama probably helps Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail more than President Obama does, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Friday. “Based on the strong support and deep respect that people across the country have for her, based on the compelling personal argument that she’s been making in support of secretary Clinton, and she’s also quite talented in her own right at delivering a speech, and those things I do think combine to make her a very powerful advocate for secretary Clinton — and probably the most powerful advocate that secretary Clinton has,” Earnest told reporters at his daily briefing.

It's a common misconception, but Henrik Fisker’s new electric sedan does not have gullwing doors. Those are butterfly doors, like the ones on the Mclaren F1.

The attacks struck Twitter, Paypal, Spotify and other customers of an infrastructure company in New Hampshire called Dyn, which acts as a switchboard for internet traffic. The attackers used hundreds of thousands of internet-connected devices that had previously been infected with a malicious code that allowed them to cause outages that began in the Eastern United States and then spread to other parts of the country and Europe.
Mexico's government moved closer on Thursday to its goal of extraditing notorious drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman to the United States by February, after a judge rejected an appeal.

Tesla is working to start up a ride-sharing service called the Tesla Network that will compete against established companies like Uber and Lyft, the company stated on its website.

From the statement, it appears Tesla may attempt to lock owners out of full autonomy if they are caught using their cars for ride hailing and car-sharing services.
By Philip Pullella CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (Reuters) - It may come as a surprise to most people, but about 40 children were born in the bedroom of the pope at the pontifical summer residence south of Rome. Now that bedroom, which became a makeshift delivery room when the residence housed refugees during World War Two, and the rest of the papal apartments have been opened to the public as part of a museum. The frugal Pope Francis decided not to used the villa - similar to but smaller than some of Europe's royal residences, judging it too luxurious and grandiose.
