It was disturbing enough that Donald Trump has thrown loose talk around on the campaign trail that he feels the election is going to be rigged against him. “I’ll look at it at the time,” was all that Trump would say, after being asked multiple times by Fox News’ Chris Wallace, the moderator of the third and final presidential debate.

Philippine officials sought on Friday to play down comments by President Rodrigo Duterte who announced his "separation" from the United States a day earlier, saying their country will maintain U.S. trade and economic ties. Duterte made his comments in Beijing, where he was paving the way for what he calls a new commercial alliance as relations with long-time ally Washington deteriorate. "I've realigned myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world - China, Philippines and Russia.
Up to 25 people were missing, feared drowned, Friday after men on a Libyan coastguard speedboat attacked a packed migrant dinghy during a rescue operation off the north African state. German NGO Sea-Watch, which is taking part in the multinational search and rescue operation in the Mediterranean, said the tragedy happened after its boat Sea-Watch 2 and a passing oil tanker were sent to help the distressed dinghy in the early hours. As the rescue operation proceeded just beyond Libyan territorial waters north of the port of Sabrata, a speedboat bearing the Libyan coastguard insignia arrived and tried to steal the dinghy's outboard engine, spokesman Ruben Neugebauer told AFP.
New Jersey's commuter railroad is facing growing calls for more scrutiny at federal and state levels amid questions about its safety after one of its trains crashed into a station last month, killing a woman on the platform and injuring more than 100. New Jersey lawmakers on Thursday voted to grant themselves subpoena power as they begin to look into the Sept. 29 crash at Hoboken Terminal. Bob Menendez and Cory Booker, both of New Jersey, on Wednesday asked federal officials to investigate safety and funding issues within NJ Transit, including a finding by The Associated Press that NJ Transit had a significantly higher accident rate over the last five years than the rest of the nation's 10 largest commuter railroads.

Not exactly the stressful metropolis we were expecting based on Musk's tweet.

SANAA/ADEN, Yemen (Reuters) - A 72-hour truce in Yemen came under pressure on Thursday when missiles fired from Yemen killed two civilians in Saudi Arabia, the United States said, while a Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes that Iran-allied Houthi fighters said killed three people.

A U.N.-brokered ceasefire took effect late on Wednesday, raising hopes of an end to a war that has devastated the Arab world's poorest country and left it on the verge of famine.

If you live in an AT&T area, chances are you're not in love with the level of control the company already has over your internet and TV service. A merger of the two companies -- one of which has significant monopoly power over cable TV, and the other that makes much of the content that goes over those pipes -- would be great for business, and probably not good for anyone paying for it. The takeover makes sense for AT&T, since the company has been looking at getting into the content creation and media side of the business.
Jihadist leaders are fleeing Mosul, a top US general in the coalition battling the Islamic State group said Wednesday as Iraqi forces closed in on the northern city.
