Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said that if you want to know the specifics of Donald Trump’s immigration policy, you’ll have to ask the real estate magnate himself. The GOP leader declined to spell out what his party’s presidential nominee planned to do about the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. This distancing comes after a week of Trump softening his anti-illegal-immigration stance, which had included calls for a deportation force to kick out every undocumented immigrant.
One woman was killed and four people were injured last week after a truck carrying Takata airbag parts exploded in Texas, wiping out both the vehicle and a nearby home. The truck was pulling a flatbed trailer stacked with airbag cartridges and was headed to a Takata plant in Eagle Pass, Texas on August 22nd when it exploded in the town of Del Rio, Conexion Del Rio reports. According to authorities, the truck drove off the road, caught fire, and exploded right in front of the house of 69-year-old Lucila Robles, killing her.
A false report of gunshots that sent panicked travelers fleeing from Los Angeles International Airport came right after officers with weapons drawn detained a masked man dressed in black and possibly carrying a plastic sword, officials said. Soon after, hundreds of passengers raced onto streets or the tarmac, causing major flight delays that the airport was still recovering from Monday. Investigators were focusing on what prompted the first of several 911 that came from multiple terminals, airport police Officer Rob Pedregon said Monday.
Japan braced Monday for a powerful typhoon -- the third in little more than a week -- and authorities warned of heavy rain, high waves and flooding after the previous storms killed two people. Typhoon Lionrock, described as "strong", was likely to come ashore northeast of Tokyo on Tuesday before cutting across the country's main island of Honshu and heading out to sea towards Russia and China, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. At 3:00 pm (0600 GMT) Monday, Lionrock was 330 kilometres (210 miles) east of Hachijo island in the Pacific Ocean southeast of Tokyo, the agency said.
Iran has arrested a member of the negotiating team that reached a landmark nuclear deal with world powers on suspicion of spying, a judiciary spokesman said on Sunday. The suspect was released on bail after a few days in jail but is still under investigation, Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said at a weekly news conference, calling the unidentified individual a "spy who had infiltrated the nuclear team," state media reported. The deal that President Hassan Rouhani struck last year has given Iran relief from most international sanctions in return for curbing its nuclear program, but it is opposed by hardliners who see it as a capitulation to the United States.

At a Cuban port in June 2013, the Chong Chon Gang took on secret cargo: some 240 tons of Soviet-era weapons. Later, under the direction of diplomatic staff stationed in Cuba, the ship’s crew of 32 North Koreans layered thousands of bags of raw sugar over the weapons, concealing them from sight. Many of the crew were employees of the state, according to a 2016 United Nations report, with salaries paid by a marine ministry in Pyongyang.
The famous human ancestor known as Lucy walked the Earth, but it was her tree climbing that might have led to her demise, a new study suggests. Lucy likely died quickly, said John Kappelman, an anthropologist at the University of Texas at Austin, who published the findings Monday in the journal Nature. How Lucy met her end has remained a mystery since her well-preserved fossil remains were unearthed more than four decades ago.
Afghan special forces have rescued a kidnapped Australian aid worker, officials said on Monday, four months after she was taken at gunpoint in the country's volatile east. Katherine Jane Wilson, said to be aged around 60, is "safe and well", Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said, without disclosing when she was released or who was behind her abduction. Unidentified masked gunmen kidnapped Wilson from Jalalabad, near the border with Pakistan, in late April when she was visiting the city for a women's embroidery project.

Like licenses, mugshots aren't known to make people look good. So why not try and change it if you have the opportunity? Police in Australia were on the hunt for 18-year-old, Amy Sharp after she escaped from corrective service officers in Sydney on Aug
It seems Tesla didn't account for all of the employees it would need to run its Fremont production plant, because parking at the facility is a nightmare. The person behind Instagram's teslaparkinglot posts nothing but pictures of badly-parked Tesla employee vehicles, with a side of snarky commentary. While scrolling through the stacks of terrible park-jobs, though, you start to notice something interesting: Some of these Tesla employees drive pretty great cars.
A nationwide drive to weaken job guarantees for U.S. public school teachers shows no sign of fading away even though an extended legal battle to stop the practice of granting tenure in California went down in defeat last week. The California challenge, which would have made it easier for school districts to fire teachers deemed to be underachievers, reached the end of the line when the California Supreme Court declined to take up the case. The decision was a setback for advocates of sweeping changes in education that unionized teachers generally oppose, including a repeal of tenure and more funding for charter schools.
Inside a shady tent in the middle of quake-hit Amatrice, a little girl hunches over a table drawing a picture of the soaring mountains overlooking this small Italian town. For her, the drawing showed the only thing that remained constant after Wednesday's earthquake which brought death and destruction to a string of remote hilltop towns and villages in central Italy. Not far from the morgue where families have been identifying their dead, a group of children are playing in a tent set up by Save the Children, using drawing as a way to express the trauma they have experienced.
The forthcoming release of iOS 10 will introduce a number of compelling new features that should help users with even older iPhone models feel like they have a fresh new device. While Apple showed off many of iOS 10's more dramatic new features at WWDC this year, it naturally didn't have time to cover every single change and design tweak. Not to worry, we've been playing with an endless stream of iOS 10 betas over the past few weeks and have steadily been taking note of some of the more intriguing, helpful and lesser-known iOS 10 features iPhone and iPad users can expect to see later this fall.
Brazilian senators on Saturday questioned the last two witnesses summoned by the defense for President Dilma Rousseff in her impeachment trial for allegedly breaking fiscal rules in the management of the federal budget. In the third day of deliberations, senators questioned former Finance Minister Nelson Henrique Barbosa and Rio de Janeiro State University law professor Ricardo Lodi. Several days of debate, including an address by Rousseff on Monday, will culminate in a vote on whether to permanently remove her from office.
When animal rescuers found Grecia, a gravely injured Costa Rican toucan, they feared the worst. Grecia’s upper beak had been beaten clean off. Now, Grecia has become the face of a new legislative push to offer new protections for wild animals and harsher punishments for their abusers.
Venezuela sent an opposition leader who was under house arrest back to jail and expelled a delegation of Ecuadoran lawmakers, amid rising political tension over a campaign to recall leftist President Nicolas Maduro. Former San Cristobal mayor Daniel Ceballos was abruptly taken from his home before dawn by members of the Venezuelan intelligence services, his wife said on Twitter, posting a video of their vehicles as they drove away. Patricia de Ceballos said her husband was loaded into an ambulance where he was shown an order transferring him to a prison in a distant state.
You might assume that of course your boss wants to know every detail about the situation you're emailing her about -- being thorough is good, right? Sometimes when people feel put on the spot by a question from a colleague or boss, they respond by giving their best guess.
Oregon police and two FBI agents could face a lawsuit from the widow of an Arizona rancher who took part in the Malheur Wildlife Refuge occupation and was killed in a confrontation with authorities. "All six shots fired by the Oregon State Police, the three into the truck and the three that struck Mr. Finicum, are justified," Malheur County District Attorney Dan Norris said.
Soaring about 2,600 miles (4,200 kilometers) above the planet's clouds, NASA's Juno space probe had its closest-ever look at Jupiter Saturday. The pass was the first of 36 planned orbital flybys, NASA said in a statement. Soaring at 130,000 miles per hour (208,000 kilometers per hour), it was the nearest the solar-powered spacecraft will get to Jupiter during its main mission, which should end in February 2018.
St. John the Baptist Fire District Chief Spencer Chauvin was among those killed in the early morning crash after the chartered bus slammed into him as he tried to help victims of another accident, Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Melissa Matey told reporters at a news conference. The incident started when a speeding pickup truck spun out of control, bouncing from one side of the road to the other before coming to rest along the right lane and shoulder of Interstate 10 near the community of Laplace, about 25 miles (40 km) northwest of New Orleans, Matey said. It was not immediately clear why the bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, 37, lost control.
Several attackers rammed a car through the gates of Belgium's national crime laboratory on Monday in Brussels and then started a fire in what prosecutors said may have been an attempt to destroy evidence. The incident comes as Belgium remains on high alert following suicide attacks on the city's airport and metro in March which were claimed by the Islamic State group. "Several attackers forced their way into the institute using their car and were able to attack the building," said Ine Van Wymersch, a spokesman for the Brussels prosecutor's office.
