The black student, identified only as a Cornell junior and member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity, told The Cornell Daily Sun he’d arrived home at 1 a.m. on Friday morning to find a group of strangers “shoving” his friends.

The likelihood that the U.S. will see a catastrophic earthquake within the next 30 years is very high — and it’s not just the West Coast that’s at risk, experts say. Seismologists have long warned that the U.S. is “overdue” for an earthquake, because a catastrophic one has not occurred in the U.S. since about 1989, when the Loma Prieta earthquake killed at least 63 people in California, said Robert Yeats, a geology professor at Oregon State University. The most destructive earthquake the U.S. has ever seen was the 7.9-magnitude “Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906,” which killed an estimated 3,000 people, according to the agency.

The unnamed man had been with his family on a boat that sounded a distress call off the coast of Puerto Rico as the storm moved in on Wednesday.

President Trump said Thursday that the United States will impose fresh sanctions on North Korea, and he joked with his South Korean counterpart about the “deplorable” regime in Pyongyang — a throwback to Hillary Clinton’s description of some of his supporters in 2016. After South Korean President Moon Jae-in called North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs “extremely deplorable,” Trump cracked a smile and told reporters he had nothing to do with his counterpart’s word choice. “I’m happy you used the world ‘deplorable,’” Trump told Moon, to laughter from other U.S. officials in the room.

By Costas Pitas LONDON (Reuters) - Greenpeace activists boarded a ship arriving in Britain on Thursday to stop the delivery of more than 1,000 Volkswagen cars from Germany while others sought to immobilise vehicles at a port in anti-diesel protests. VW admitted cheating diesel emissions tests in 2015, triggering political and consumer pressure that has caused a slump in sales of diesel cars in major markets, with governments announcing plans to ban vehicles powered by conventional combustion engines. Greenpeace said its volunteers had boarded the ship in the Thames Estuary in an attempt to stop it unloading at the port of Sheerness in the southeast of England.
Pakistan refuses to be a "scapegoat" for Afghanistan's bloodshed or to fight wars for others, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi told the United Nations on Thursday. Addressing the UN General Assembly, Abbasi did not explicitly criticize US President Donald Trump's new strategy on Afghanistan but made clear his displeasure with the renewed onus on Pakistan. "Having suffered and sacrificed so much due to our role in the global counter terrorism campaign, it is especially galling for Pakistan to be blamed for the military or political stalemate in Afghanistan," Abbasi said.

A day after Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, flooding towns, crushing homes and killing at least two people, millions of people on the island faced the dispiriting prospect of weeks and perhaps months without electricity. "You cannot live here without power," said Hector Llanos, a 78-year-old retired New York police officer who planned to leave Saturday for the U.S. mainland to live there temporarily.
President Donald Trump called North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un a “madman” who would be “tested like never before” on Friday morning, hours after the rogue nation threatened to test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific. Trump tweeted the threat following a rare, explosive statement from Kim, who warned the U.S. president would “pay dearly” for his address to the United Nations General Assembly earlier this week. Hours later, North Korea’s foreign minister threatened to drop a hydrogen bomb somewhere in the Pacific.
Joseph Lovergive’s Halloween display of a man who’d been decapitated by his Greeneville home’s garage door was so life-like that his neighbor, Johnny Riddle, reported what he thought was a dead body to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday. “I thought it was somebody,” Riddle later told WJHL. Deputies showed up at Lovergive’s house and soon determined that the “body” was a Halloween decoration that the homeowner had put out more than a month early.
