Amid rumors of campaign disarray and unease over his debate performance, Donald Trump took aim at Hillary Clinton in a more personal way Wednesday, mocking her for taking days off the campaign trail and suggesting she would only bring scandal to the White House if elected. Campaigning in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the celebrity businessman turned Republican presidential nominee delivered a scathing scripted speech casting Clinton as a corrupt insider who has had many opportunities to bring change to Washington but failed. For nearly a half-hour of his 45-minute speech, Trump relitigated a litany of Clinton scandals, including the flaps over her private email server and dealings between Clinton’s State Department staff and the Clinton Foundation.
Automakers across the board are filling more and more of their lineups with utopian people-movers for the 21st Century, and Mercedes-Benz is no exception. To tease its new electric concept car before its full reveal at the Paris Motor Show this week, Mercedes-Benz released a short clip of the vehicle showing off a few details and hinting at other clues on the new car. Previously, The Drive reported on how Daimler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company, has been looking to start up its own electric car sub-brand to rival Tesla.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey told a House of Representatives panel on Wednesday that the police tactic known as "stop and frisk" is an important tool when used right. Comey told the panel that
A black man reportedly acting erratically at a strip mall in suburban San Diego was shot and killed by police after pulling an object from his pocket, pointing it at officers and assuming a “shooting stance,” authorities said. One of the officers tried and failed to subdue Alfred Olango with a stun gun before the other officer fired several times, El Cajon Police Chief Jeff Davis said at a late night news conference. Police disputed that and produced a frame from cellphone video taken by a witness that appeared to show the man in the “shooting stance” as two officers approached with weapons drawn.
A new Dutch-led investigation of the 2014 deadly shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in a separatist-held area of Ukraine corroborates what was already widely documented: A Russian Buk missile system caused the crash. Prosecutors stopped short of directly blaming Moscow, which has denied involvement. Moscow’s spin machine quickly took flight after the inquiry’s report became public.
Over the course of Big Muscle's multi-season run, Musto has spent seat time in quite a few completely balls-to the wall hotrods—but some of his greatest adventures have been behind the wheel of Chrysler's muscle cars. /DRIVE pioneers Larry Kosilla, J.F. Musial, and Musto come together capture both of the muscle man's own MOPAR beauties on camera. Watch Musto pilot a 1969 Plymouth GTX that was originally purchased by its owner in 1976, and has not since had any sort of full restoration job.
A North Korean soldier walked across one of world's most heavily fortified borders on Thursday and defected to the South, military authorities said. The man crossed the military demarcation line around 01:00 GMT on the central-eastern part of the border, Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said. It is rare for North Korean defectors to walk across the mine-riddled border, which is guarded by tens of thousands of soldiers on both sides.
The mayor of a small central Pennsylvania town is being asked to resign over racist posts on his Facebook page, including two depicting apes with captions referring to President Barack Obama and his family, and one referring to lynching. One image from June on the Facebook page of West York Mayor Charles Wasko is of a wagon or wheelbarrow full of orangutans, including the caption, "Aww ... moving day at the Whitehouse has finally arrived." The wheelbarrow has the slogan "Kenya or bust" on it. A picture of a grinning chimpanzee doesn't have a caption, but a comment posted on the mayor's page Feb. 14 says, "Most think it is Obama's picture......sorry its Moochelles baby photo" — an apparent reference to first lady Michelle Obama.
On Thursday morning, the United States Supreme Court said it would accept eight new cases for its 2016 term, which starts next week.

Another trademark case the Court accepted is Lee v. Tam.
Donald Trump has faced a deficit among female voters throughout the campaign, and with just over a month left, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is seeking to throw gasoline on the fire. In that effort, Clinton has a willing partner in arson: The ghost of Trump past. It shows Trump at a 2007 appearance in San Francisco.
Which is to say, the Civic Type R Prototype revealed at the Paris Motor Show is all but certainly the spitting image of the production version Honda says will make its way to North American shores in 2017. The 20-inch black-and-red wheels sit beneath beefy fender flares, while up front, the traditional red Honda badge reserved for the carmaker’s R models sits between the slotted hood and the angry front fascia with its carbon-fiber splitter.

Indonesian rescuers on Wednesday evacuated hundreds of tourists from a volcano that erupted a day earlier and were searching for as many as 50 climbers. Authorities closed the gates to Mount Rinjani, one of Indonesia's most visited active volcanoes on the resort island of Lombok, next to Bali, and told visitors to keep at least three km away. The erupting cone is called Barujari, a volcano within Mount Rinjani.
The unidentified 14-year-old boy is believed to have killed his own father at their home in Townville before heading to the elementary school, where he allegedly shot two students and a teacher. Before any further carnage could unfold, authorities say a veteran firefighter was able to stop the teen and become a hero to the rural southern town. "[He] wants to remain humble and quiet about it," Scott Stoller with Anderson County Emergency Management told the AP.
It seems odd to look back to just over two years ago — a time when Russia had already effectively annexed Crimea and quietly fomented civil war in Ukraine — and to think of those days as simpler times. To be sure, they weren’t that simple, even then: Before Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine, Russian officials had already lied publicly about their special forces’ role in the seizure of Crimea.
The University of Missouri said on Wednesday a fraternity accused of making racial slurs toward a group of black students had been suspended, less than a year after allegations of racism on campus ignited protests. The university's Legion of Black Collegians said in a statement that two black students were in front of the Delta Upsilon fraternity house late on Tuesday when several white students passed by and one uttered a racial obscenity. As police officers arrived at the scene, additional racial slurs were heard from the white students by the black students, according to the group.
A Regulus I missile had pretty lines. In profile they were cigar-shaped, with the purposeful, flat intake nose of early 1950s fighter planes like the F-86 Sabre that widened amidships over an Allison turbojet engine, then tapered again at the exhaust.
Europe's Rosetta spacecraft, due to switch off Friday after a 12-year odyssey, carried eleven scientific instruments to sniff and photograph a comet from all angles. Together, the robot explorers have advanced our understanding of comets -- of which there are billions -- believed to be leftovers from the birth of our Solar System some 4.6 billion years ago. "Nobody had any idea comets can be so weird until Rosetta got there," said Fabio Favata of the European Space Agency's (ESA) robotic exploration directorate.
Black Americans are less likely to dial 911 immediately following, and for more than a year after the highly publicized assault or death of a black person at the hands of police. Three sociologists—Matthew Desmond at Harvard, Andrew Papachristos at Yale, and David Kirk at Oxford—screened and analyzed over 1.1 million 911 calls made to Milwaukee’s emergency dispatch between March 1, 2004 and December 31, 2010.

“Hey I’m Prius Prime,” he said, “and my power is to transform into a Prius. The Prius Prime is pretty much a Prius that, via an electric plug, transforms into a slightly better Prius. Toyota officially launched the Prius Prime last week in California.
A German woman who was kidnapped in war-torn Syria last year and gave birth while in captivity escaped with her baby to Turkey on Wednesday, the German foreign ministry said. "The German woman and her baby who was born while she was held hostage are in good condition considering the circumstances," the ministry said in a statement. It said the two were now under the care of German consular officials and members of the German federal police in Turkey.
Two Minnesota sisters vacationing at a resort off the coast of Africa were found dead inside their luxury villa in a mystery that has left their loved ones devastated. The bodies of Ann Marie Korkki, 38, and Robin Marie Korkki, 42, were discovered on the same bed in their villa at the Maia Luxury Resort and Spa in the Seychelles at about noon last Thursday, the Seychelles Nation reported.
If Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte makes good on his threats to turn away from his country’s 65-year-old alliance with the United States, the first casualty would likely be the U.S. military mission there, which has become a model for successful counterterrorism operations worldwide. After warning earlier this month that the U.S. military contingent of several hundred troops has to go, Duterte said Monday that his country’s alliance with Washington had reached “a point of no return” and on Wednesday he said an upcoming joint military exercise would be the last with the United States. The threat to push out the team of up to 100 U.S. Special Operations Forces, along with an additional 300 to 500 American conventional troops, comes as concerns mount in Washington and Southeast Asia about the Islamic State’s efforts to spread its tentacles in the region.
By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Global warming is on track to breach a 2 degrees Celsius threshold by 2050 unless governments at least double their efforts to limit greenhouse gas emissions, scientists said on Thursday. Plans by almost 200 governments to cut greenhouse gases are far too weak to match targets set in a Paris Agreement on climate change last December for a drastic shift from fossil fuels towards greener energies, they said. "We've really got a problem," Robert Watson, a British-American scientist who was among the seven authors of the study and is a former head of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), told Reuters.
