Donald Trump walked away from a reporter mid-interview Thursday after he was asked about people who’ve called him a racist and a sexist. In a one-on-one interview ahead of his campaign rally in Ohio, local NBC4 reporter Colleen Marshall questioned the Republican presidential nominee about his widely disputed voter fraud claims, criticisms of his tax plan and even the string of prominent Republicans who’ve withdrawn their support for his campaign following the release of the now-infamous “Access Hollywood” videotape earlier this month. “Nineteen days out from the election, you’ve been labeled a racist, you’ve been called a sexist,” Marshall began before the candidate cut her off.

Bao Bao, star of the Smithsonian National Zoo’s famed panda cam, and Zoo Atlanta’s twin panda cubs are returning to China in accordance with a long-term loan agreement with the China Wildlife Conservation Association (CWCA). For decades, China has loaned its prized pandas to countries in what's known as 'panda diplomacy,' rewarding trade deals and political commitments. Bao Bao, the first surviving cub born at the zoo since 2005, "is very special to us at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo," Brandie Smith, the associate director of animal care sciences, said in a statement. "She's captured the hearts of people all over the world who watched her grow up on the panda cams, and she has been an ambassador for conservation.
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. "Please note that using a self-driving Tesla for car sharing and ride hailing for friends and family is fine, but doing so for revenue purposes will only be permissible on the Tesla Network, details of which will be released next year," reads a paragraph on the company's 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.

Cyber attacks targeting a little known internet infrastructure company, Dyn, disrupted access to dozens of websites on Friday, preventing some users from accessing PayPal, Twitter and Spotify. Dyn, whose customers include some of the world's most widely visited websites, said it did not know who was responsible for the outages that began in the Eastern United States, and then spread to other parts of the country and overseas. Dyn said attacks were coming from tens of millions of Internet-connected devices -- such as web cams, printers and thermostats -- infected with malicious software that turns them into "bots" that can be used in massive distributed denial of service attacks.
American and coalition military officials have said for weeks they expect the Islamic State to go underground and revert to guerrilla tactics once they’re pushed out of Mosul. Early reports say about two dozen civilians and security forces have been killed, and some of the terrorist fighters are holed up in a hotel in the city. While the guns rage in Kirkuk, another group of ISIS fighters — including three suicide bombers — hit a power station north of the city, slaughtering over a dozen workers, including some from Iran, according to reports.

Up to 25 people were missing, feared drowned, Friday after men on a Libyan coastguard speedboat attacked a packed migrant dinghy during a rescue operation off the north African state. German NGO Sea-Watch, which is taking part in the multinational search and rescue operation in the Mediterranean, said the tragedy happened after its boat Sea-Watch 2 and a passing oil tanker were sent to help the distressed dinghy in the early hours. As the rescue operation proceeded just beyond Libyan territorial waters north of the port of Sabrata, a speedboat bearing the Libyan coastguard insignia arrived and tried to steal the dinghy's outboard engine, spokesman Ruben Neugebauer told AFP.
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.

By Stephen Kalin BARTELLA, Iraq (Reuters) - The din of bullets, mortars and bombs in the northern Iraqi town of Bartella was replaced momentarily on Friday by a sound not heard there for more than two years: the peal of church bells. A cautious calm returned to this historic Christian area following its recapture from Islamic State a day earlier as Iraqi forces push west towards Mosul, the jihadists' last major stronghold in the country. Bartella, once home to thousands of Assyrian Christians, emptied in August 2014 when Islamic State seized control as part of a lightning blitz across large swathes of Iraq and neighboring Syria.
