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.
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.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey told a House of Representatives panel on Wednesday that the police tactic known as "stop and frisk" is an important tool when used right. Comey told the panel that
It seems odd to look back to just over two years ago — a time when Russia had already effectively annexed Crimea and quietly fomented civil war in Ukraine — and to think of those days as simpler times. To be sure, they weren’t that simple, even then: Before Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine, Russian officials had already lied publicly about their special forces’ role in the seizure of Crimea.

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.
Black Americans are less likely to dial 911 immediately following, and for more than a year after the highly publicized assault or death of a black person at the hands of police. Three sociologists—Matthew Desmond at Harvard, Andrew Papachristos at Yale, and David Kirk at Oxford—screened and analyzed over 1.1 million 911 calls made to Milwaukee’s emergency dispatch between March 1, 2004 and December 31, 2010.
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 University of Missouri said on Wednesday a fraternity accused of making racial slurs toward a group of black students had been suspended, less than a year after allegations of racism on campus ignited protests. The university's Legion of Black Collegians said in a statement that two black students were in front of the Delta Upsilon fraternity house late on Tuesday when several white students passed by and one uttered a racial obscenity. As police officers arrived at the scene, additional racial slurs were heard from the white students by the black students, according to the group.
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. Musial, and Musto come together capture both of the muscle man's own MOPAR beauties on camera. Watch Musto pilot a 1969 Plymouth GTX that was originally purchased by its owner in 1976, and has not since had any sort of full restoration job.
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.
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 White House urged India and Pakistan to avoid escalation in their dispute over Kashmir on Thursday after elite Indian troops crossed the line of control to attack militants in Pakistan-ruled Kashmir it said were preparing attacks on major cities. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said reports from the region indicated the Indian and Pakistani militaries had been in communication with one another "and we encourage continued discussions ... to avoid escalation."

Earnest said he could not speak to "any specific coordination" between India and the United States on the situation.
“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.
Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Thursday the U.S. will "sharpen our military edge" in Asia and the Pacific in order to remain a dominant power in a region feeling the effects of China's rising military might. Carter made the pledge in a speech aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson in port in San Diego. The Pentagon chief described what he called the next phase of a U.S. pivot to Asia — a rebalancing of American security commitments after years of heavy focus on the Middle East.
A friend of Alexa Coria started the donation account after the woman’s boyfriend, Juan Canales-Hernandez, was arrested for allegedly killing baby RaeLynn Coria Martinez.

Donald Trump has faced a deficit among female voters throughout the campaign, and with just over a month left, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is seeking to throw gasoline on the fire. In that effort, Clinton has a willing partner in arson: The ghost of Trump past. It shows Trump at a 2007 appearance in San Francisco.
A massive typhoon left one person dead in eastern China on Wednesday, a day after killing four and injuring more than 600 in Taiwan, where authorities remained on alert for the possibility of a landslide. Typhoon Megi caused more than $10 million in damage as it swept across Taiwan before weakening into a tropical storm after hitting the coastal city of Quanzhou in China’s Fujian province before dawn, Taiwan’s weather service said. At its height, it was packing winds of up to 118 kilometers (74 miles) per hour, China’s National Meteorological Center said.
By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Global warming is on track to breach a 2 degrees Celsius threshold by 2050 unless governments at least double their efforts to limit greenhouse gas emissions, scientists said on Thursday. Plans by almost 200 governments to cut greenhouse gases are far too weak to match targets set in a Paris Agreement on climate change last December for a drastic shift from fossil fuels towards greener energies, they said. "We've really got a problem," Robert Watson, a British-American scientist who was among the seven authors of the study and is a former head of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), told Reuters.
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.
