A horrifying image of a schoolboy being dragged to a violent death in a dirty alleyway has galvanised the Philippines against a brutal state-led war on drugs that has killed over 12,500 people in the last year. For a nation now largely immune to the bloodied corpses of alleged small time drugs users and dealers dumped on the streets, the graphic reports of the final moments of Kian Delos Santos, 17, who was allegedly shot three times by undercover police officers, have been too much to bear. In the case of Delos Santos, the police initially claimed he had fired first.
The most ideal place to view a solar eclipse is not always on the ground — the best seats in the house might belong to the people who are midair as the moon passes in front of the sun and covers a circular patch of Earth in darkness. There are a bunch of lucky people who will be able to watch the solar eclipse from above the clouds. Southwest Airlines was reportedly making more flights available to people who wanted the high-altitude experience, including handing out special solar eclipse viewing glasses to passengers so they would not have to scramble to find their own.

Jeep hasn't sold a pickup truck since 1992, when the XJ Cherokee-based Comanche went out of production, though Jeep has made many concept pickup trucks to tease us. To say we're excited for the Wrangler pickup would be an understatement, so let's round up everything we think we know about it. Jeep started the Wrangler pickup fever in 2005 with the Gladiator Concept (shown above), but it never reached production.
In 1979, Americans watched a total solar eclipse pass over the continental United States. Eight years later, another phenomenon crossed our paths: the first BMW M5. If it seems as if the latest M5 won’t warp space-time anymore, well, blame the Dodge Charger Hellcat and the Porsche Panamera Turbo.

The Trump who showed up was the Trump who spoke about the heritage of freedom in Warsaw, not the Trump from the past week’s worth of press conferences.
