House Speaker Paul Ryan says he doesn’t care that Donald Trump continues to tweet outlandish claims as president-elect as long as Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress get things done when he’s in the Oval Office. “That’s what’s going to matter at the end of the day,” Ryan said in an interview that aired on CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday. It was a stunning claim as there is no evidence of significant voter fraud.

The past few months haven’t been kind to GoPro. With the belated release of the Hero 5 camera, and the mass Karma drone recall that’s currently underway, what looked like a promising holiday season for GoPro is fast turning into a nightmare.

The avowed white supremacist accused of killing nine black people at an historic South Carolina church told a federal judge on Sunday that he no longer wished to represent himself during the "guilt" phase of his murder trial in Charleston. Dylann Roof, 22, sent a handwritten note to U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel saying that he now wished to bring back his defense team, at least temporarily, for a trial that began last week with jury selection. "Can you let me have them back for the guilt phase, and then let me represent myself for the sentencing phase of the trial?" Roof wrote in blue ink on lined notebook paper.
A North Carolina man was arrested Sunday after he walked into a popular pizza restaurant in northwest Washington, D.C., carrying an assault rifle and fired one or more shots, police said. Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury, N.C., told police he came to the restaurant to “self-investigate” a false election-related conspiracy theory involving Hillary Clinton that spread online during her presidential campaign. According to police, the 28-year-old man walked into Comet Ping Pong and pointed the rifle at an employee who managed to flee. The popular family restaurant was at the center of an onslaught of fake news and conspiracy theories that were prevalent during the presidential campaign.
Beyond those few clues, the details of Fidel Castro’s final resting place were one of the most tightly kept secrets in Cuba. The tomb stood to the side of a memorial to the rebel soldiers killed in an attack that Castro led on Santiago’s Moncada barracks on July 26, 1953, and in front of the mausoleum of Cuban national hero Jose Marti. Cuban officials have said nothing about future access to Castro’s tomb, but its apparent location alongside Marti’s, a grand site heavily visited by tourists and Cubans alike, indicates that there will be continuing of public access to the grave of the man who led Cuba for nearly 50 years and died on Nov. 25 at 90.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country was moving towards allowing trade with Russia, China and Iran to be conducted in local currencies, as he continues his efforts to strengthen the falling lira. "If we buy something from them, we will use their money, if they buy something from us, they will use our currency," he said, ahead of a trip by Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim to Russia for meetings on Tuesday. Erdogan -- who previously said discussions were underway with Moscow, Beijing and Tehran on the issue -- added that instructions related to this proposal had been given to the central bank.
The Chrysler 200's production has ended. FCA did search for a partner to continue building the 200, but could not reach an agreement with any manufacturers. The 200, which shared a platform with the Dodge Dart, was slightly smaller and didn't seem to fit the targeted niche, leading to the rather dreary numbers.Chrysler has since decided to repurpose the plant once used for 200 production to focus on building the next RAM 1500 as well as other models built upon the same architecture. This all comes after a host of plant layoffs and a temporary shutdown to the Michigan facility.

Before the "Ghost Ship" became the a scene of a deadly fire in Oakland, California, the building was an artist workspace and a makeshift boarding house. Big colorful rugs and well-worn sofas filled the rooms, while a vast collection of pianos, guitars, turntables, paintings and other objects you might find in an antique store lay scattered around the loft-like interior, according to pictures on Ghost Ship's website. A photo, taken from Ghost Ship's Tumblr page, shows the warehouse's interior before the deadly fire.

The German government pleaded for calm Monday after the arrest of a teenage Afghan asylum seeker for the alleged rape and murder of a German student triggered fresh criticism of the country's liberal refugee policy. The anti-migrant AfD party blamed the crime on the "uncontrolled" influx of foreigners, while the head of a police union warned of the "dangers that always go along with massive immigration". "Such horrible murders already happened before the first Afghan or Syrian refugee arrived here," Gabriel told the Bild newspaper.

By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Apple Inc is wading in to the debate over regulation of self-driving cars, declaring it is excited about the potential for automated transportation and calling on U.S. regulators not to restrict testing of such vehicles. A five-page letter from Steve Kenner, Apple's director of product integrity, to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is the company's most comprehensive statement yet about its interest in self-driving vehicle technology. "Executed properly under NHTSA's guidance, automated vehicles have the potential to greatly enhance the human experience — to prevent millions of car crashes and thousands of fatalities each year and to give mobility to those without." Apple urged regulators not to impose too many restrictions on testing of self-driving cars, saying "established manufacturers and new entrants should be treated equally." Since software would decide what actions to take in potentially dangerous situations, Apple said certain areas need special attention.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT12 is a rare bird. The good people at Gaydon stamped together just 100 examples of this race-inspired special edition, all of them with the company's famed 6.0-liter V12.

The Obama administration said on Saturday that it had officially received Bergdahl's request for a pardon. If the clemency request is granted before President Obama leaves office, Bergdahl could avoid a military trial scheduled for the spring. In the event that Obama does not grant Bergdahl's request, the sergeant's attorneys plan to file a motion arguing that Trump violated Bergdahl's due process rights with his repeated, incendiary rhetoric at campaign rallies.
When South Korea's Park Geun-Hye looks back on the scandal-fuelled implosion of her presidency, she may reflect ruefully on what lit the first fuse -- a parent pulling strings over a child's education. Park's downfall was the result of her friendship with Choi Soon-Sil -- a secretive, long-time confidante who stands accused of meddling in state affairs, squeezing tens of millions of dollars from local companies and amassing a fortune by leveraging her ties to the president. This was the first loose thread pulled at by investigators probing Choi, and one that swiftly unravelled the entire scandal that now looks set to cost Park her presidency.
