New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is still petitioning the federal government to compensate the Big Apple for protecting President-elect Donald Trump. Since Trump’s election victory, the New York Police Department has had to vastly increase its already intense security for the area. “New York City taxpayers should not be on the hook for 80 percent of the national bill to protect our president-elect and his family’s residence,” he said.

Hospital sources and two parliamentarians said the air strikes killed dozens of civilians, including 12 women and 19 children on Wednesday in a market district of the town of Qaim, close to the border with Syria.

It’s rare that a vehicle can be so ahead of its time when first introduced that it remains relevant for the good part of a decade. Somehow, the Volvo XC60 has accomplished such a feat with minimal updates and fairly safe styling. The 2017 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD doesn’t look that much different from the 2010 XC60 which is actually quite impressive.
Rescuers scrabbled through the rubble of shattered homes, shops and mosques in search of survivors Wednesday after a powerful earthquake struck western Indonesia and killed at least 97 people. The shallow 6.5-magnitude quake struck Aceh province, one of the areas worst affected by the devastating 2004 tsunami, at dawn as many in the mainly Muslim region on Sumatra island were preparing for morning prayers. "So far 97 people have been killed and the number keeps growing," Aceh military chief Tatang Sulaiman told AFP after the army took over responsibility for the search and rescue.
Thousands of people observed a moment of silence before fighter jets streaked across the sky during a ceremony Wednesday at Pearl Harbor marking the 75th anniversary of the attack that plunged the United States into World War II and left more than 2,300 service people dead. Attendees also gave a lengthy ovation to Adm. Harry Harris of the U.S. Pacific Command when he spoke in favor of standing for the national anthem. The anniversary is a tribute to "what freedom does when it is faced with fascism," said Paul Hilliard, incoming chairman of the board of the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

"In the Senate, there's consensus for three years," Senator Orrin Hatch, chairman of the chamber's finance committee, told reporters, saying it could take that long to work out a replacement for Obamacare.
Months after heavy flooding destroyed parts of North Korea’s northeastern region in late August and early September, Kim Jong Un’s regime has termed the disaster recovery after mass mobilization a “miraculous victory” for the East Asian country. The heavy rains triggered by typhoon Lionrock in late August and early September led to severe floods in North Korea, leaving hundreds of people dead and tens of thousands others stranded. A mass mobilization movement, referred to as the “200-day battle,” has been credited for the “victory” on the “reconstruction front” in North Hamgyong Province, state-controlled news agency KCNA reported Wednesday.

A young male is seen with two long kitchen knives in startling video footage that was posted to social media after a fight reportedly erupted between two boys at Reno's Hug High School.

For the last 50-plus years, muscle cars have been confronted with a basic problem: more power than traction. Until today, when Dodge revealed the 2017 Challenger GT—the first muscle car with all-wheel-drive straight from the factory. People have been retrofitting AWD systems to muscle cars for years—Ken Block’s maniacal 1,400-horsepower Hoonicorn being the most obvious example—but this marks the first time a carmaker has officially slapped such a drivetrain into a production car.

A famous Russian submarine design bureau is working on a drone that imitates submarines. The drone, tentatively named "Surrogat," could be a useful decoy in baiting a trap…or escaping one.

China has urged Washington to block Taiwan's president from passing through the US, after reports said she may stop in New York for talks with Donald Trump's team, following a protocol-smashing phone call between the pair. The president-elect broke with decades of precedent last week to accept a congratulatory phone call from Tsai, angering Beijing which regards the island as a rogue province awaiting unification. Taiwan's Liberty Times reported that President Tsai Ing-wen may seek to meet members of Trump's team while in New York on her way to Central America, though her office would not confirm the plan to AFP.
You and I both know that air-cooled Porsches have always been cool. The escalating interest—and skyrocketing market value—of the air-cooled Porsche has been synchronous with the rise of social media, which allows anyone with an internet connection to follow the personalities, coach builders, and collectors upholding the air-cooled tradition. The term “outlaw” is thrown around a lot in the air-cooled community, but Emory is one of the progenitors of this tradition—only without the connotations that come to mind when generally thinking about hot rodding, though.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he hopes to convince Syria's warring factions and their backers to return to the negotiating table before the besieged city of Aleppo is destroyed. Kerry said Tuesday that he is due to meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Hamburg, Germany on Thursday and would try to find a way forward. Earlier Tuesday, Lavrov said talks with Washington are not working and alleged that the United States wants a pause in the fighting so rebels can re-arm.
