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
Young Americans across races and ethnicities are now more likely to support Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump for president, and to say the former secretary of state will help people like them, a new GenForward poll shows. Clinton's largest advantage is among young African-Americans, Latinos and Asian-Americans, but the survey also shows a shift to her among young whites in the last month. GenForward is a survey of adults age 18 to 30 by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio to stand trial in December on a criminal contempt charge of violating the terms of a court ruling against the controversial sheriff in a 2007 racial profiling case. The latest court order setting Arpaio's trial date for Dec. 6 means that the six-term Maricopa County sheriff will be spared from facing the contempt charge in court until well after his bid for re-election on Nov. 8. Under contempt proceedings approved by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, Arpaio is accused of disobeying the terms of a 2011 court injunction barring his officers from stopping and detaining motorists based solely on suspicion that they were in the country illegally.

The widow of a state trooper killed by a driver accused of driving under the influence of marijuana is making an emotional plea against a ballot question that would legalize recreational pot. Trooper Thomas Clardy, a father of seven, was killed in March when a medical marijuana patient crashed his vehicle into Clardy's cruiser.

With just two weeks before the November 8 election, polls showed Democrat Clinton -- who is vying to become America's first female president -- dominating nationally and looking for a resounding mandate to govern the bitterly divided country. Early voting began in Florida on Monday, an urgent reminder that candidates have little time left to make their case in the country's third most populous state, one with a wide mix of constituencies, including numerous retirees, Latinos and Bible Belt whites. The Republican nominee, determined to ride out the controversies hobbling his campaign, made a pitch to Florida's elderly voters by assailing a sharp rise in health insurance premiums expected next year under President Barack Obama's signature health care reform.
The president of the Mississippi NAACP is demanding a federal hate crime investigation after the parents of a black high school student said as many as four white students put a noose around their son's neck at school. "No child should be walking down the hall or in a locker room and be accosted with a noose around their neck," president Derrick Johnson said Monday during a news conference in Wiggins. Johnson said the incident happened Oct. 13 near a locker room at Stone High School in Wiggins.
Police in Tunisia have arrested two American citizens on suspicion of terrorist activities after finding videos and pictures praising Islamic State, a security official said on Tuesday. The official said the suspects, aged 29 and 32, had come to Tunisia to study and that one of them had married a Tunisian woman who had traveled to Syria. Tunisia suffered several major attacks claimed by Islamic State last year.
On Sunday evening, Elon Musk, the billionaire tech mogul and nerd hero behind Tesla Motors, hosted a special two-hour Q&A session on Reddit. The AMA, which lasted roughly two hours, was intended as a supplement to the presentation he gave on during last month’s International Astronautical Congress. Which, in turn, meant questions were limited to the fledgling commercial rocket program, and Interplanetary Transport System, not Musk's electric car company or recently consolidated renewable energy firm, SolarCity.
Speaking at a conference this week, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai recalled a childhood friend in Pakistan who was forced to marry at age 11, ending her life as a school student. Ms. Yousafzai, famous advocate for girls’ education, said schooling means far more for girls than just reading books or passing exams. The tale of her friend makes a case for a new approach by the United Nations and many others trying to lift the world’s poor: Focus particularly on girls.
Taken from aboard a Nazi-built V2 rocket on Oct. 24, 1946, the black and white photo shows a smattering of clouds casting shadows down upon our planet. Since 1946, Earth imaging has become an integral part of government as well as private work.
Convincing North Korea to abandon nuclear weapons is a "lost cause," America's top intelligence official said, causing concern in the State Department and ally South Korea over an issue of long-standing US policy. The United States has always maintained it cannot accept North Korea as a nuclear state and, under President Barack Obama, has made any talks with the North conditional on Pyongyang first making some tangible commitment towards denuclearisation.
Warming ocean waters have been destabilizing some of the massive ice shelves around Antarctica for years. “The system is no longer in equilibrium,” said Ala Khazendar of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the leader of the study published in the journal Nature Communications. As glaciers flow slowly off the edge of the continent and into the sea, they begin to float while still attached to the land in a zone scientists call the “grounding line.” It’s natural for seawater to melt the resulting ice shelves, “or pieces of the ice shelf detach from the front, forming what we know as icebergs,” said Khazendar.
“Why has the Islamic State lost some of the territories under its control? As its leaders are picked off from the sky, as its economic resources run dry, and as its prized “caliphate” slips from its grasp — Mosul likely being the next casualty — the Islamic State’s supporters are looking for explanations for why the tide of war has turned against them. The facts on the ground, after all, no longer support the Islamic State’s triumphalist slogan: Remaining and Expanding (baqiya wa-tatamaddad).
By Steve Holland DORAL, Fla. (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Democrat Hillary Clinton's plan for Syria would "lead to World War Three," because of the potential for conflict with military forces from nuclear-armed Russia. In an interview focused largely on foreign policy, Trump said defeating Islamic State is a higher priority than persuading Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, playing down a long-held goal of U.S. policy.
Oklahoma County investigators says the aunt and uncle of a man wanted in the shooting of two police officers suffered severe knife wounds to their necks consistent with someone attempting to sever their heads.

Tomorrow afternoon after the bell closes, Apple will post its earnings results for the recent September quarter. Because Apple's fiscal year ends in September as opposed to December, tomorrow will not only give us a little bit of insight into how the iPhone 7 is doing, it will also provide us with a complete picture of Apple's finances over the last year. Interestingly, because Apple experienced two consecutive quarters of iPhone sales declines this year, 2016 will likely mark the first time in 15 years that Apple will report a year-over-year decline in annual revenue.
The two co-mayors of Diyarbakir, the biggest Kurdish-majority city in southeast Turkey, have been arrested as part of a "terrorism" enquiry, security officials said. There was a heavy police presence around the town hall following the arrests of Gultan Kisanak and Firat Anli, who together lead a city that has been rocked by clashes between security forces and members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). Dozens of police were surrounding the town hall with light armoured vehicles and trucks loaded with water cannon as officers searched the building, an AFP correspondent said.
