“Despite what the press writes, I have great relationships with, actually, many senators, but, in particular, with most Republican senators,” Trump told reporters during a meeting with his Cabinet. “But we’re not getting the job done. Trump on Congress: "We're not getting the job done. The president specifically blamed Senate Republicans for failing to follow through on a years-old GOP pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Senate leaders shelved their repeal bill last month after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and at least two other Republicans said they’d vote against it.
As a wildfire closed in and thick smoke clogged the air, the sky an angry red, the sheriff’s deputy told a dispatcher that the road he was on had become “nearly impassable.” Yet, the officer’s job was not yet done. In body camera footage released Friday by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, the deputy drives around the Mark West Road area of Santa Rosa, California, dodging flames and conducting door-to-door evacuations as the deadly and devastating Tubbs fire began to overwhelm the region in the early part of the week. At one point in the video, the officer ― identified by CBS as Sgt. Brandon Cutting ― is seen stopping by the house of a woman with a disability and helping a fellow deputy rescue her and her husband.
Tina Frost, 27, woke from a coma on Friday to take her first steps since sustaining a bullet to the forehead from being shot by Stephen Paddock on the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas. “She opens her left eye just a lil and looks all around the room at us, taps her feet whenever music is playing,” Frost’s mother, Mary Watson Moreland, said in a statement posted on their GoFundMe page. Frost was hit by one bullet at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, which caused not only a two-week coma at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas but also the loss of her right eye.

A Canadian man who was recently rescued from Taliban-tied kidnappers thought his captors were joking when they told him Donald Trump is president. “It didn’t enter my mind that he was being serious,” Joshua Boyle, who was rescued alongside his wife and three children in Pakistan after five years imprisonment, told the Toronto Star. Mr Boyle was surprised to hear that Mr Trump had been elected even before he and his wife were forced to film a “proof-of-life” video that was sent to investigators and their family.

Deborah Drahus Capo knew she’d have to leave Puerto Rico the moment she emerged from the bathroom where she had holed up throughout Hurricane Maria last month. Ten days after the storm devastated the island, Drahus Capo boarded a flight to Florida with her daughter and granddaughter in tow. “It’s like they pulled the rug out from under me: I had my life, my clients, and all of a sudden I’m on plane to Miami,” she told HuffPost last week.
Israeli archaeologists in Jerusalem's Old City on Monday unveiled a newly unearthed section of the Western Wall and the first Roman public structure ever discovered in the city, they said. Archaeologist Joe Uziel said he and his colleagues knew the wall section was there and had expected to find a Roman street at its base. The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), which conducted the two-year dig, said that historical sources mentioned such structures but in 150 years of modern archaeological research in the city none had been found.

Defense attorneys argued Sunday that the wrong man is on trial and that their client, Quinton Tellis, should be found innocent because 19-year-old Jessica Chambers told firefighters that someone named Eric or Derek set her on fire. "'Eric' is not on trial today, but ladies and gentlemen, he should be," attorney Darla Palmer said during closing arguments on the sixth day of Tellis' capital murder trial. District Attorney John Champion said Chambers, who died hours after being set on fire, suffered severe damage to her mouth and throat and could not pronounce the letter T.
NEW YORK ― There’s a reason women keep quiet about men like Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and Donald Trump for decades before numerous sexual assault accusations suddenly spill out at once. “Information escrows” ― systems that hold onto an encrypted, confidential sexual assault or harassment report until at least one other person has accused the same individual of assault ― could help solve this problem, according to Yale economist Ian Ayres. Just as dating apps like Tinder allow people to privately express interest until it’s returned, technology can keep people’s sexual assault reports private until there’s a “match,” so no one has to make the first move alone.
By John Davison and Ellen Francis AIN ISSA, Syria/BEIRUT (Reuters) - U.S.-backed militias launched their "final" assault on Syria's Raqqa on Sunday after letting a convoy of Islamic State fighters and their families quit the city, leaving only a hardcore of jihadists to mount a last stand. "The battle will continue until the whole city is clean," said a statement by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a U.S.-backed alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias. SDF spokesman Talal Selo told Reuters that "no more than 200-300" foreign militants remained to fight on in the city after the convoy left.

Katherine Weaver was convinced Izzy died in a ferocious wildfire that destroyed their Northern California neighborhood and sent them fleeing for safety, Katherine still in her nightgown. When the men reached the end of the narrow road on Tuesday, Jack Weaver swore as he saw that the house was completely gone.

A court in Maharashtra state issued a shoot-to-kill order Friday against the two-year-old female tiger after its latest victim, a woman, died earlier this month.

There is no such thing as Obamacare anymore,” Trump insisted during a meeting with his Cabinet at the White House. Contrary to the president’s claims, Obamacare is still the law of the land. The White House announced Thursday it would halt subsidies that low-income Obamacare consumers rely on, a move that Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said would threaten “the ability of vulnerable people to receive health care.” Trump also signed an executive order on Friday that will allow insurance companies to offer cheaper, less comprehensive health insurance plans.

"(Our troops) were able to get Isnilon Hapilon and Omar Maute.

Zumwalt, unable to get close enough to target with guns and Kirov, unable to use its radar-guided weapons, both break off to fight another day. The recent decline in relations between Russia and the West has put ship-vs.-ship warfare back on the table. After more than a decade of supporting land wars in the Middle East and Central Asia, the U.S. Navy is reinvesting in the core mission of sinking ships.
Mazda is committed to the rotary, though whether the unique engine design is used to directly power a sports car or serve as a range-extender for an electric car remains to be seen. Mazda has hinted at both options in recent years but so far has tended to flip-flop between the two. Now, though, a senior Mazda executive has hinted that both options could be on the table.
By Suleiman Al-Khalidi AMMAN (Reuters) - The Turkish army is expanding its deployment in northwest Syria with the goal of encircling a Kurdish enclave and reining in Russian strikes in the Idlib border province under a deal to reduce clashes, rebels and witnesses said on Sunday. A convoy of Turkish army troops entered Syria near the Bab al-Hawa border crossing on Thursday in the first such deployment since last year when Ankara launched a major ground and air offensive to clear Islamic State militants from its last stretch of border with Turkey. At least four convoys carrying scores of armored vehicles and equipment have been stationed in several locations in the first phase of a deployment that is expected to deepen inside rebel-held Idlib, opposition sources said.
