Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump speaks at a campaign event in Charlotte, N.C., on Oct. 26, 2016. Down Ticket is Yahoo News’ complete guide to the most fascinating House, Senate and governors’ races of 2016. Clinton, as usual, is taking the more traditional route, redirecting her attention and her resources — including a sizeable portion of her more-than-sizeable $150 million war chest — into helping the rest of her party’s candidates succeed on Nov. 8.
In the earnings announcement released yesterday, Tesla reported a net income was $22 million, or $0.14 per share due on a total revenue of $2.3 billion. On August 29, Musk sent an email to all employees revealing that the company was on the verge of being profitable and implored them to build, sell, and deliver every vehicle possible and to cut all unnecessary expenses. When this practice was publicly brought to Musk’s attention on Twitter, he put a stop to it in a company-wide email.
Italy on Thursday vowed to rebuild every home destroyed after two powerful earthquakes that forced thousands to flee in terror but "miraculously" did not cause any fatalities. Two months after tremors in the same area left nearly 300 dead, the twin quakes ripped through a mountainous, sparsely-populated part of central Italy on Wednesday evening. "Given the strength of the shocks, the absence of any deaths or serious injuries is miraculous," Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said, while Prime Minister Matteo Renzi headed to the scene to help oversee rescue efforts.
For the last few years, Ferrari has followed a model-release schedule that's roughly as regular as the tides—which makes predicting when future models will show their beautiful faces rather predictible. For starters, we know almost certainly that the car will be a mid-cycle refresh of the existing F12berlinetta, not a full-blown replacement model.
The U.S. Justice Department charged 61 people and entities on Thursday with taking part in a scam involving India-based call centers where agents impersonated Internal Revenue Service, immigration and other federal officials and demanded payments for nonexistent debts. Twenty people were arrested in the United States on Thursday, while 32 individuals and five call centers in India have been charged, the department said in a statement. The defendants, including 24 people across nine U.S. states, were indicted by a grand jury in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
Last week's major cyberattack, which affected millions of computer users, was probably the work not of a foreign government but of a non-state actor, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Tuesday. "But I wouldn't want to be conclusively definitive about that yet," Mr. Clapper added, during an interview at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank offices in New York. Since the White House has recently accused Russia of carrying out a politically motivated hack on the Democratic National Committee, some might be relieved to learn the latest incident seems to be largely apolitical, despite its proximity to the American presidential elections.
In an ambitious effort to ensure that Turkey plays a leading role in shaping Iraq and Syria after the ouster of the Islamic State, Turkish officials have gone on the offensive in recent months, deploying troops across borders, issuing threats to foreign governments, and publicly yearning to claw back former Ottoman territory carved away nearly a century ago. The far-reaching reprisals follow the failed military coup that sought to unseat President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in July, and vastly overshadow previous Turkish purges after abortive putsches. On Thursday, Turkish police arrested another 45 air force pilots, just the latest salvo in a purge whose scope is unprecedented in NATO history.
At least 3,800 migrants and refugees have perished this year while trying to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe, the highest ever toll ever on the perilous route, the UN said Wednesday. "We can confirm that at least 3,800 people have been reported dead or missing in the Mediterranean Sea so far this year, making the death toll in 2016 the highest ever recorded," UN refugee agency spokesman William Spindler told AFP in an email, as the figures passed last year's mark of 3,771. Last year, more than a million people reached Europe via the Mediterranean, but crossings so far this year remain below 330,000.
If the German-owned British automaker is truly looking to launch a new car that can compete with the like of the beloved, established Porsche 911, then Bentley needs to bring its testing A-game.

Perhaps best known as the wordsmith behind many Republican talking points, Luntz had quite a few zingers about Trump, including one about the GOP nominee’s sometimes stilted delivery of prepared speeches. “Stevie Wonder reads a teleprompter better than Donald Trump,” he jested.
Mercedes-Benz will tell you that the big story with the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 and E63 S is the amount of power flowing from its engine. All due respect to the three-pointed star, but its P.R. people are wrong on this one. No, the big story here is that

By Andrew Cawthorne and Alexandra Ulmer CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's increasingly militant opposition stepped up its push to oust leftist leader Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday with protests that drew hundreds of thousands but also saw unrest leading to dozens of injuries and arrests. The government blamed opposition activists clashing with security forces on a highway out of Caracas. The police force of Miranda, whose governor is opposition leader Henrique Capriles, confirmed the death but did not link it to protesters.
A Wisconsin city clerk raised concerns about opening an early voting site on the state university’s Green Bay campus in part because she feared it would encourage more Democratic-leaning students to vote, a move that some say could suppress the vote along partisan ties. As early voting becomes a more popular choice for people across the nation, political parties have tried to strategically use or block the option, which tends to appeal most to low-income voters who don’t necessarily have flexible schedules or time to wait in line to vote on one designated day. In theory, early voting strengthens a democracy by increasing participation.
White House hopeful Hillary Clinton said the proposed mega-merger of AT&T and Time Warner "raises questions and concerns" and merits further study. AT&T and Time Warner, home of CNN and HBO, have said the proposed $108.7 billion deal will benefit consumers as they gird for anti-trust challenges from politicians and regulators. "It raises questions and concerns, and they should be looked into," Clinton told reporters Wednesday.

Tesla (TSLA) shares soared Wednesday after the company posted its second profitable quarter ever and beat analyst expectations for the third quarter by a wide margin. In a conference call Wednesday night, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the company currently believes the fourth quarter will be profitable excluding non-cash stock-based expenses, and added there is a "chance" Tesla will be profitable even taking those things into account. Tesla said it earned 71 cents a share on an adjusted basis in the third quarter on $2.3 billion in revenue.
Sir Thomas Trueheart is a cat who loves to snuggle with teddy bears and cuddles with anyone on sight, but the friendly kitty has a horrifying past. As a stray, Tommy was roaming around California's Antelope Valley when an unknown attacker poured acid on his head, which melted his skull and caused him to lose an eye. "It was definitely something that was pretty devastating — his burns were extensive," said Genia Donaldson, manager and technician at Beverly Oaks Animal Hospital.
A German couple accused of luring women to their village home with personal ads went on trial Wednesday over charges they tortured and killed two of them. Wilfried and Angelika Wagener allegedly entrapped at least eight women over the years in what the media has dubbed the "house of horrors" case. Chief prosecutor Ralf Meyer on Wednesday outlined details of the case that has sparked widespread revulsion in Germany amid fears the couple may have had more victims.
Turkish police in the mainly Kurdish city of Diyarbakir on Wednesday used tear gas and water cannon to scatter protesters following the arrest of the city's popular two joint mayors for alleged links to terrorism. Gultan Kisanak, a member of parliament before becoming Diyarbakir's first female mayor in 2014, and Firat Anli, her co-mayor, were detained late on Tuesday as part of a security crackdown after more than a year of violence in the region. President Tayyip Erdogan has said the removal of elected officials and civil servants who are accused of links to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, is integral to Ankara's battle against the armed group.
