Qatar began three days of mourning on Monday after the death of former emir Khalifa bin Hamad Al-Thani, who oversaw the start of the country's transformation into an energy powerhouse. Prayers took place at the national mosque after which the former ruler -- who was deposed in a bloodless coup by his son Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani in 1995 -- was buried in Al Rayyan on the western fringes of Doha.

While you probably think of Honda as a fairly fuel-efficient carmaker, the company actually lags far behind many other big automotive brands when it comes to offering hybrid and electric cars. CEO Takahiro Hachigo wants to see the majority of Honda’s American sales be hybrids and EVs by 2030, according to Automotive News. Honda will shoot to get those categories to make up two-thirds of its cars and trucks worldwide by that point, Hachigo told AN, but “the ratio will be far higher in the U.S.” Plug-in vehicles, he said, will make up the core of the American market.

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 lapped the Nurburgring in 7:29:60—and Chevy caught the whole event on video. In another sign of the impending extinction of the manual transmission, the ‘Ring-record ZL1 was equipped with the GM’s new 10-speed automatic transmission developed in conjunction with Ford. As Chevrolet was more than happy to point out in the official press release, that 7:29.60 lap time is a full 11.67 seconds than the outgoing fifth-gen Camaro ZL1.
Faced with the challenge of maintaining its all-volunteer military as wars dragged on in Iraq and Afghanistan in the mid-2000s, the Pentagon began offering its most generous incentives ever, issuing up-front bonuses to those who agreed to reenlist. Now nearly 10,000 current and retired soldiers in The Golden State have been ordered to repay all or some of the bonuses they received to incentivize their return to war. "We want somebody in the government, anybody, to say this is wrong and we’ll stop going after this money," Robert Richmond told The Los Angeles Times.

A video deposition of the woman identified in the article only as "Jackie" was played for jurors Monday in the defamation trial against Rolling Stone magazine for the 2014 article "A Rape on Campus" by Sabrina Rubin Erdely. University of Virginia administrator Nicole Eramo is seeking $7.5 million from the magazine, claiming she was cast as the story's "chief villain." A police investigation later found no evidence to back up Jackie's claims.

By Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A nurse who contracted the Ebola virus while treating the first person diagnosed with the deadly disease in the United States has reached a settlement with the Dallas hospital where she was in a team caring for the man, a statement on Monday said. Terms of the deal between the hospital's owner, Texas Health Resources, and nurse Nina Pham, the first person infected with Ebola in the United States, were not disclosed.

The attack came just weeks after a surfer also suffered cuts after being "bumped" by a shark south of Byron Bay in Ballina -- the scene of several attacks in recent years. Of the 14 unprovoked shark attacks off the New South Wales state coast in 2015, most occurred along a 60-kilometre hotspot from Evans Head to Byron Bay which includes the town of Ballina.
By Maher Chmaytelli and Stephen Kalin BAGHDAD/BARTELLA, Iraq (Reuters) - Islamic State expanded its attacks on Monday against the army and Kurdish forces across Iraq, trying to relieve pressure on the militant group's defenses around Mosul, its last major urban stronghold in the country. About 80 Islamic State-held villages and towns have been retaken in the first week of the offensive, bringing Iraqi and Kurdish forces closer to the edge of the city itself - where the battle will be hardest fought. The Mosul campaign, which aims to crush the Iraqi half of Islamic State's declared caliphate in Iraq and Syria, may become the biggest battle yet in the 13 years of turmoil triggered by the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, and could require a massive humanitarian relief operation.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Monday he hopes South Africa will reconsider its decision to withdraw from the International Criminal Court. Ban said in a statement that he regretted the decision which followed a dispute over South Africa's refusal to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and hand him over for trial at the ICC for war crimes. Pretoria last week presented a formal letter to the United Nations announcing its decision to pull out of the Rome statute, the founding treaty of the ICC.
