Clinton had proved herself again to be the diligent studier who pretends to be amused when you know she isn’t. According to all the TV analysis, which now eerily resembles an NFL playoff postgame show, Donald had self-destructed, Hillary had humiliated him, and the dynamic of the race had suddenly shifted — perhaps for good. For about the thousandth time this year, the headlines portrayed Trump as a political Gulliver bound finally in ropes and about to crash to earth once and for all.
A Regulus I missile had pretty lines. In profile they were cigar-shaped, with the purposeful, flat intake nose of early 1950s fighter planes like the F-86 Sabre that widened amidships over an Allison turbojet engine, then tapered again at the exhaust.

The backhanded compliment came from the combined pen of Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who in a blistering statement on Wednesday sarcastically applauded Kerry for taking a hard stance with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov over the Russian bombing campaign in Syria. The State Department released a statement earlier in the day reading out a phone call Kerry had with Lavrov, where Kerry told him that Washington holds Russia responsible for bombing hospitals and civilian infrastructure in Aleppo.

“Hey I’m Prius Prime,” he said, “and my power is to transform into a Prius. The Prius Prime is pretty much a Prius that, via an electric plug, transforms into a slightly better Prius. Toyota officially launched the Prius Prime last week in California.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Thursday that Congress's passage of a law allowing Sept. 11-related suits against Saudi Arabia was "an abject embarrassment" and that the administration was willing to talk to lawmakers about narrowing the
Over the course of Big Muscle's multi-season run, Musto has spent seat time in quite a few completely balls-to the wall hotrods—but some of his greatest adventures have been behind the wheel of Chrysler's muscle cars. /DRIVE pioneers Larry Kosilla, J.F.

An Egyptian court suspended on Thursday a previous ruling freezing the controversial transfer of two Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia, which had provoked protests when announced earlier this year. The decision by the urgent matters court may be used by the government as a green light to go ahead with the transfer of the islands of Tiran and Sanafir to Saudi Arabia. In June, an administrative court had overturned a maritime border agreement, signed during a visit to Cairo by Saudi Arabia's King Salman in April, that handed the two islands to Riyadh.
Can reparations reconcile some of the damage done by centuries of slavery, segregation, and discrimination? The topic has always highlighted deep divides, and a recent United Nations report that called the slave trade a crime against humanity and urged the US to pay reparations has reignited the issue. “Past injustices and crimes against African Americans need to be addressed with reparatory justice,” the report said.
With countless software companies proclaiming they know how to build better cars, we were relieved to find Lexus has built an actual car rather than a “user experience,” which is what “UX” stands for in the tech community. Instead, the Lexus UX concept is our first good look at the luxury brand’s subcompact crossover that will join the growing fray of shrunken, premium SUVs that includes the BMW X1, Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Infiniti QX30. Compared to the smallest Lexus crossover today, the NX, the UX is 9.1 inches stubbier, 5.0 inches lower, 1.2 inches wider, and sports a 0.8-inch tighter wheelbase.
During Monday night’s presidential debate, Hillary Clinton, eyes fixed on her audience, declared that “words matter” when spoken by political leaders. The ancient Greek historian Thucydides, who recounts — or, more likely, re-creates — in his History of the Peloponnesian War many celebrated debates between Athenian statesmen, would surely agree. Unfortunately, there’s also good reason to believe that Thucydides would find Clinton’s performance as a cautionary tale, rather than a paean to democratic values.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's program for paying confidential sources to assist with narcotics-trafficking investigations is riddled with deficiencies that could open the door to fraud and abuse, the Justice Department's internal watchdog said on Thursday. The Justice Department's Inspector General found in an audit that the DEA continued to pay so-called deactivated sources, or people who did not qualify to receive money because they had been arrested or had committed serious crimes. In one instance, the report says the DEA paid a source who had provided false testimony in trials and depositions.
Which is to say, the Civic Type R Prototype revealed at the Paris Motor Show is all but certainly the spitting image of the production version Honda says will make its way to North American shores in 2017. The 20-inch black-and-red wheels sit beneath beefy fender flares, while up front, the traditional red Honda badge reserved for the carmaker’s R models sits between the slotted hood and the angry front fascia with its carbon-fiber splitter.
The mayor of a small central Pennsylvania town is being asked to resign over racist posts on his Facebook page, including two depicting apes with captions referring to President Barack Obama and his family, and one referring to lynching. One image from June on the Facebook page of West York Mayor Charles Wasko is of a wagon or wheelbarrow full of orangutans, including the caption, "Aww ... moving day at the Whitehouse has finally arrived." The wheelbarrow has the slogan "Kenya or bust" on it. A picture of a grinning chimpanzee doesn't have a caption, but a comment posted on the mayor's page Feb. 14 says, "Most think it is Obama's picture......sorry its Moochelles baby photo" — an apparent reference to first lady Michelle Obama.
Japan's problem-plagued new passenger jet on Thursday completed a flight to the United States for testing, its maker said, after aborting two earlier attempts. The Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) touched down at Grant County international airport in Washington state after flying from Anchorage. The first domestically made passenger jet, which left Nagoya airport on Monday, also stopped in Japan's northernmost Hokkaido, Russia and Alaska for fuelling.
Medtronic Plc won U.S. approval on Wednesday for an "artificial pancreas" that is the first device to automatically deliver the right dose of insulin to patients with type 1 diabetes, freeing them from continually monitoring insulin levels throughout each day. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in its approval of the device, the MiniMed 670G, hailed it as a breakthrough. The device offers type 1 diabetics "greater freedom to live their lives without having to consistently and manually monitor baseline glucose levels and administer insulin," Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, director of the FDA's medical device division, said in a statement.
Expensive washers offer a jumbo capacity and extra features, but if you don’t need to wash 26 pounds of laundry in one load and using your phone to check your laundry’s progress from Starbucks isn’t a priority, then take a look at these washers from Consumer Reports’ tests. Compared to agitator washers HE top-loaders typically clean better, use less water, and spin at higher speeds so more water is extracted and dryer time is shortened.
