The past few months haven’t been kind to GoPro. With the belated release of the Hero 5 camera, and the mass Karma drone recall that’s currently underway, what looked like a promising holiday season for GoPro is fast turning into a nightmare. In hopes of recovering some of its Christmastime profits, GoPro has started offering the Karma Grip as a standalone product.
A wooden box containing Fidel Castro's ashes was placed by his brother and successor on Sunday into the side of a granite boulder that has become Cuba's only official monument to the charismatic bearded rebel who seized control of a U.S.-allied Caribbean island and transformed it into a western outpost of Soviet-style communism that he ruled with absolute power for nearly half a century. The private, early-morning ceremony was attended by members of Fidel Castro's family, the ruling Politburo of the single-party system he founded, and Latin American leaders who installed closely allied leftist governments in Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Brazil. The ashes were delivered to Castro's younger brother and successor, President Raul Castro, who wore his olive general's uniform as he placed the remains into a niche in the enormous grey boulder that will serve as his tomb.

Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein switched tactics in her campaign to force a recount in Pennsylvania, one of three battleground states won by Donald Trump where she has challenged the results. The party dropped a bid to pursue the recount in a state court, citing difficulties raising a million dollar bond demanded by the tribunal. "Make no mistake -— the Stein campaign will continue to fight for a statewide recount in Pennsylvania," attorney Jonathan Abady said in a statement.
Wheeler Dealers is a great show, but it is a general interest car show that doesn't have the level of Porsche pedantry that I'm quite used to in my daily life. You'll notice a few points of the car that remain undone for them to be asking what they are, the door panels appear to have been hacked for aftermarket speakers, and the sunvisors are splitting with the stuffing spilling out.

Craig Buckner left his parrot, named Bird, in a tree outside of an Oregon court while he saw the judge, not thinking he would be arrested on the spot. "He told our deputy, Shoana McKelvey, about his concerns," Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Bob Ray told the Dodo. McKelvey reportedly tried to get the bird to come down herself but to no avail so she brought Buckner outside and the parrot flew right down to his owner’s shoulders.
By now, we know that the 2018 E-Class will have a facade of next-gen technology. We wouldn’t expect anything less from Benz, after all. But even then, it looks like the new model will be especially impressive in terms of safety, luxury, and self driving
Rallying for the sixth straight weekend in what has become perhaps South Korea's biggest protest movement ever, hundreds of thousands of demonstrators in Seoul got the closest yet Saturday to the president they desperately want removed.

By Matthew Mpoke Bigg ACCRA (Reuters) - Authorities in Ghana have busted a fake U.S. embassy in the capital Accra run by a criminal network that for a decade issued illegally obtained authentic visas, the U.S. State Department said.

The Chrysler 200's production has ended. FCA did search for a partner to continue building the 200, but could not reach an agreement with any manufacturers. The 200, which shared a platform with the Dodge Dart, was slightly smaller and didn't seem to fit the targeted niche, leading to the rather dreary numbers.Chrysler has since decided to repurpose the plant once used for 200 production to focus on building the next RAM 1500 as well as other models built upon the same architecture. This all comes after a host of plant layoffs and a temporary shutdown to the Michigan facility.

China protested to Washington Saturday after US President-elect Donald Trump broke with decades of foreign policy and spoke with the president of Taiwan. It was not immediately clear whether Trump's telephone call with Tsai Ing-wen marked a deliberate pivot away from Washington's official "One China" stance, but it fuelled fears he is improvising on international affairs. China regards self-ruling Taiwan as part of its own territory awaiting reunification under Beijing's rule, and any US move that would imply support for independence would likely trigger fury.

By Francois Murphy and Kirsti Knolle VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian voters roundly rejected on Sunday a candidate vying to become the first freely elected far-right head of state in Europe since World War Two, halting at least temporarily the wave of populism sweeping Western democracies. The runoff vote was a litmus test, since it was a re-run of a vote held in May, before Britain voted to leave the European Union and Americans elected Donald Trump as president. Norbert Hofer of the anti-immigration Freedom Party lost the May election by less than a percentage point, and polls had for months shown the race too close to call.
