A Philippine mayor accused of drug trafficking was killed along with nine bodyguards in a shoot-out with police Friday, authorities said, hours after President Rodrigo Duterte threatened to intensify his crackdown on crime. Samsudin Dimaukom, the mayor of the southern town of Saudi Ampatuan, was one of more than 150 local government officials, judges and police identified by Duterte earlier this year as being involved in the illegal drug trade. The deadly crime war has claimed more than 3,800 lives and drawn criticism from the United States, the United Nations and international rights groups who have accused police of summarily executing suspects.

Apple's new MacBook Pro is stunning. You might be asking, "how am I supposed to connect my iPhone to my new MacBook Pro?" The answer is that you're going to have to buy a dongle. Unfortunately, there is no such slot on the new MacBook Pro, so there's dongle #2.
Bilingual education is back on the ballot in California. At present, the Golden State public schools are required to teach most English learners in English-only programs. By voting "yes" on Proposition 58, California voters would make it easier for schools to decide how they teach English learners, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office, the California legislature’s nonpartisan fiscal and policy advisor.
By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Worldwide populations of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles have plunged by almost 60 percent since 1970 as human activities overwhelm the environment, the WWF conservation group said on Thursday. An index compiled with data from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) to measure the abundance of biodiversity was down 58 percent from 1970 to 2012 and would fall 67 percent by 2020 on current trends, the WWF said in a report. Conservation efforts appear to be having scant impact as the index is showing a steeper plunge in wildlife populations than two years ago, when the WWF estimated a 52 percent decline by 2010.
The United States on Thursday reassured its key Asian allies Japan and South Korea that its policy seeking North Korea's nuclear disarmament remains unchanged, after its intelligence chief called it a "lost cause". Washington has always maintained it cannot accept North Korea as a nuclear state and, under President Barack Obama, has made any talks with Pyongyang conditional on the country first making some tangible commitment towards denuclearisation. US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken took issue with that view in Tokyo after a trilateral meeting with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts.

Syrian rebels launched a major assault Friday aimed at breaking a months-long siege of opposition-held districts of Aleppo, as regime ally Russia held off on renewed air strikes. The European Union said late Friday its top diplomat Federica Mogherini was heading to Iran and Saudi Arabia for talks on Syria's five-year conflict. Rebel groups including the Ahrar al-Sham faction and former Al-Qaeda affiliate Fateh al-Sham Front fired rockets into government-held western Aleppo, killing at least 15 civilians, a monitor said.

The scary reality is that Halloween is one of the deadliest days or nights of the year for pedestrians, especially children. Parents should accompany children if they are younger than 12 years old.
Images taken by a NASA Mars orbiter indicate that Europe's ill-fated Mars lander left a small crater on the Red Planet's surface, backing up scientists' theory that the craft hit the ground at high speed. The disc-shaped, 577-kg (1,272 lb) Schiaparelli probe, part of the Russian-European ExoMars program to search for evidence of life on Mars, was destroyed last week when its thrusters stopped firing too soon during its descent to the surface. Scientists believe that the Schiaparelli lander plummeted to the ground from a height of 2 to 4 km (1.2 to 2.5 miles), hitting the ground at more than 300 km/h instead of touching down softly as it was supposed to.
By Minami Funakoshi YOKOHAMA, Japan (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Thursday his country could join naval exercises with Japan, but repeated there would be no more war games with long-time ally the United States and again gave vent to his anger against Washington. Duterte also said he had explained to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in talks on Wednesday just why he resented the United States, reiterating that Washington treated the Philippines like "dogs on a leash" and lectured about human rights in connection with his domestic campaign against drugs. The Philippine leader's visit to Japan coincides with jitters about his foreign policy after weeks of verbal attacks on the United States, including threats to end military agreements, and overtures toward China.
An Indiana woman was arrested after police found her passed out in her car from an alleged overdose as her infant son sat in the back seat, authorities said. In the picture, the woman’s head is tilted back and her hand loosely grips a syringe.

While much is known about US cyber-war and -espionage capabilities thanks to the massive data leaks of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Russia's capacity for such is much more obscure. Mr. Vyarya, a young Russian programmer, was a team member at Qrator, a leading Russian cybersecurity company that specializes in mitigating the effects of distributed denial-of-service [DDoS] attacks. According to his account, given to the independent Russian online news service Medusa, the company was approached by an intermediary from Russia's Ministry of Communications looking for a specialist to help with a particular problem.
When Michelle Obama takes to the campaign stage with Hillary Clinton on Thursday, the intended message will be that the two women are united in political sisterhood. Back then, Clinton mocked Barack Obama’s campaign message of “hope and change,” while Michelle Obama publiclyquestioned whether she would vote for Clinton even if her husband were not in the race. Upon entering the White House, Barack Obama quickly came to rely on Clinton as one of his closest advisers, but Michelle did not warm to her as much.
The government has issued new rules meant to help students get their federal loans erased in cases involving fraud and misconduct by their schools. Federal education officials have been working to create a more detailed system for students to file claims since the Education Department received thousands of claims from former students of the now-defunct Corinthian Colleges chain, which closed or sold all of its campuses last year amid allegations of fraud. The process had previously been guided by rules from 1995 that provided little detail about when and how students could submit claims, and how the department should resolve them.

Opposition leaders called a 12-hour general strike for Friday and vowed to use their legislative majority to issue a declaration holding the elected socialist accountable for his handling of a severe economic crisis. "We are going to notify Nicolas Maduro that the Venezuelan people declare that he has abandoned his post," the speaker of the National Assembly, Henry Ramos Allup, said to cheers from hordes of protesters in Caracas. Jesus Torrealba, secretary general of the opposition Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD), also drew thunderous applause when he announced the general strike.
A U.S. federal judge in California approved Volkswagen Group’s $14.7 billion settlement with federal and state government regulators and owners of more than 475,000 VW and Audi TDI 2.0-liter diesel-powered vehicles from 2009-2015 model years with faulty diesel emissions software. The settlement, which was approved on Tuesday, Oct. 25, in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, marks the culmination of a major part of the ongoing scandal and investigation of diesel emissions defeat devices or software to cheat emissions tests that came to light in a notice of violation from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Sept. 18, 2015. Final approval of the settlement that was first announced in June is a “milestone in our journey to make things right in the United States,” said Hinrich Woebcken, CEO and president of Volkswagen Group’s U.S. arm in a statement.

Italian prosecutors have been investigating Apple's tax dealings through Apple Sales International, the Irish-based unit that controlled much of Apple's European profits. According to Reuters, a settlement has now been reached, with the potential six-month jail term for the Apple exec converted into a $50,000 fine instead.
