Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., tears a page from the national health care bill during a press conference at the Capitol in 2012. If you’re an American who misses the days when you could pick a doctor out of the phone book, write a check to pay for the visit and be done with it, you may be pleased to hear that the next president’s nominee to run the nation’s health system belongs to an organization that agrees with you. The nominee is Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., Donald Trump’s pick as secretary of health and human services, and the organization is the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, an Arizona-based group that promotes libertarian principles in health care — and an array of far-right conspiracy theories about many other topics.
Wheeler Dealers is a great show, but it is a general interest car show that doesn't have the level of Porsche pedantry that I'm quite used to in my daily life. You'll notice a few points of the car that remain undone for them to be asking what they are, the door panels appear to have been hacked for aftermarket speakers, and the sunvisors are splitting with the stuffing spilling out.
North Dakota's governor and the Standing Rock Sioux tribal chairman have agreed to meet in person to discuss the protests over the Dakota Access pipeline.

Jack Dalrymple by phone several times, but not in person since the large protests near his reservation have been going on.

By Jussi Rosendahl HELSINKI (Reuters) - A local politician and two journalists, all of them women, were shot dead with a rifle in front of a restaurant in the Finnish town of Imatra, police said on Sunday. The Southeastern Finland Police Department said it suspected a 23-year-old local man drove to the scene around midnight on Saturday, took a hunting rifle from the trunk of his car and fired four or five shots. "It looks like the victims were chosen at random," Detective Inspector Saku Tielinen told a news conference, adding that a political motive seemed unlikely.

Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. A Missouri woman, Danielle Muscato, delivered an epic, profanity-laced response that went viral.
The Chrysler 200's production has ended. FCA did search for a partner to continue building the 200, but could not reach an agreement with any manufacturers. The 200, which shared a platform with the Dodge Dart, was slightly smaller and didn't seem to fit the targeted niche, leading to the rather dreary numbers.Chrysler has since decided to repurpose the plant once used for 200 production to focus on building the next RAM 1500 as well as other models built upon the same architecture. This all comes after a host of plant layoffs and a temporary shutdown to the Michigan facility.
A woman was killed and seven other people were injured when a semitrailer crashed into a bus carrying a group of West Texas high school cheerleaders, authorities said Saturday. The small activity bus, which was carrying six cheerleaders and two cheerleader sponsors, was headed home Friday night after a football game in Colorado City, Texas, when it was hit on Interstate 20 near Big Spring, said Iraan-Sheffield School District Superintendent Kevin Allen. The semitractor-trailer, traveling eastbound on I-20, lost control trying to avoid hitting a car that had slammed its brakes, said Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Oscar Villarreal.

Investigations also uncovered a fake Dutch embassy, the State Department said.
Fans affectionately call him "the professor" -- and in the end Alexander Van der Bellen gave a lesson in election campaigning by fighting off the far-right to become Austria's new president. Van der Bellen -- also known as "Sascha", a nickname that nods to his Russian roots -- was decried by critics as a "green dictator". Hofer seized upon the sentiment and repeatedly denounced his adversary as a "communist" or even a Cold War spy for the Soviet Union -- claims Van der Bellen dismissed as "ridiculous".
The Aston Martin Vantage GT12 is a rare bird. The good people at Gaydon stamped together just 100 examples of this race-inspired special edition, all of them with the company's famed 6.0-liter V12. The trick is in the paint: To commemorate its 24 Hours of Le Mans program, Aston Martin built a limited run of GT12s wearing the iconic Gulf Racing livery, straight from the factory.
Craig Buckner left his parrot, named Bird, in a tree outside of an Oregon court while he saw the judge, not thinking he would be arrested on the spot. "He told our deputy, Shoana McKelvey, about his concerns," Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Bob Ray told the Dodo. McKelvey reportedly tried to get the bird to come down herself but to no avail so she brought Buckner outside and the parrot flew right down to his owner’s shoulders.

By Francois Murphy and Kirsti Knolle VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian voters roundly rejected on Sunday a candidate vying to become the first freely elected far-right head of state in Europe since World War Two, halting at least temporarily the wave of populism sweeping Western democracies. The runoff vote was a litmus test, since it was a re-run of a vote held in May, before Britain voted to leave the European Union and Americans elected Donald Trump as president. Norbert Hofer of the anti-immigration Freedom Party lost the May election by less than a percentage point, and polls had for months shown the race too close to call.
