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.
By Dan Whitcomb SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - The mother of an unarmed black man shot to death in Southern California said on Thursday her son was having a mental breakdown when he was confronted by police and they should have helped him instead of quickly opening fire. Within two minutes of police arriving, Alfred Olango, 38, was shot to death in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon on Tuesday after he pointed an object that turned out to be an electronic cigarette at police, authorities said. It is the latest in a string of shootings of mostly unarmed black men by white police officers in the United States that have led to sometimes violent protests.

Caribbean residents are preparing for a weekend of heavy rain and flooding as powerful Hurricane Matthew barrels towards Jamaica, Haiti and eventually Cuba. For several hours overnight Matthew became a Category 5 storm -- the strongest on the 1-5 Saffir-Simpson scale, and the most powerful Caribbean storm since Hurricane Felix in 2007. By early Saturday Matthew had weakened into a still dangerous Category 4 hurricane, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said in its 0900 GMT bulletin.
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.

Reporter: This murder trial, any murder trial, is big news in St. Lawrence county, New York.

This time it’s an audio recording of the Democratic presidential candidate speaking to donors at a February fundraiser in northern Virginia, and the subject isn’t just the usual stuff of politics: It goes to the heart of American nuclear strategy. The recording that was passed to the right-leaning Washington Free Beacon website marks another alarming episode in a campaign season marked by a series of digital thefts that security experts believe have been carried out by Russian-backed hackers to disrupt the U.S. presidential election. The hack reinforces concerns that Russia is trying to influence and interfere in the U.S. election in favor of the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, who has praised Russian President Vladimir Putin and whose aides have long had friendly ties to Moscow and its allies.
Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders has summoned Russia's ambassador over "unacceptable" comments by Moscow criticising a report into the downing of flight MH17, officials said on Friday. "Responding to the presentation of the initial findings... spokespersons for the Kremlin and the Russian foreign ministry and defence ministry questioned the professionalism, integrity and independence of the Dutch public prosecution service," the Dutch foreign ministry said. "The Russian ambassador was informed that unsubstantiated criticism like this is unacceptable," the ministry said in a statement, issued in The Hague.
A senior assistant to Egypt's top prosecutor survived an assassination attempt when a car bomb exploded in an eastern suburb of Cairo as his motorcade was passing by on Thursday evening, an interior ministry statement said. Zakaria Abdel Aziz, the assistant prosecutor general, was on his way from his office in Rehab to his home in New Cairo when a private car that was parked on the side of the road exploded. Abdel Aziz and his entourage escaped unscathed, the ministry said.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and a growing number of athletes have been called "unpatriotic" for their refusal to stand during the national anthem. Since August, at least two cases have occurred where black members of the military posted public accounts of themselves refusing to stand or salute to the national anthem, an obligation for enlisted troops in the US military that can be enforced by disciplinary actions. In August, an African-American sailor at the Naval Air Technical Training Center in Pensacola, Fla., who has not been identified, posted a video of herself on Facebook sitting down alone on a bench near a flagpole with a raised fist – a symbol for the Black Power movement – while a recording of the national anthem played.
A friend of Alexa Coria started the donation account after the woman’s boyfriend, Juan Canales-Hernandez, was arrested for allegedly killing baby RaeLynn Coria Martinez. Authorities said Canales-Hernandez, 24, struck the child with a chair after becoming “frustrated.” The baby died from her injuries two days after the attack earlier this month. The boyfriend was on probation for a previous child abuse conviction, according to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office and is being held without bail on charges including first-degree murder, the Coloradoan reported.
The boot is one of the most nefarious forms of parking enforcement ever devised. Created by New York-based Ideas That Stick, the Barnacle consists of a folding plastic tray with a pair of potent suction cups on its backside. If a meter maid or other law-enforcement official comes across an illegally-parked vehicle, he or she slaps the Barnacle across the windshield, obstructing the driver’s view until said driver calls the company’s hotline and pays the fine.
Angry protests flared again Thursday night after a family attorney charged that an unarmed black man was unjustly killed by San Diego police, and that officials were trying to sway public opinion by only releasing a single, favorable frame from video of the shooting. Pamela Benge said her family had escaped strife-torn Uganda to come to the U.S. for safety and she asked why police didn’t just shock her son with a stun gun or shoot him in the leg.
“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.
Turkey's main opposition party leader on Friday accused the government of seeking to capitalise on the July 15 coup to stifle dissent, and vowed to oppose moves to extend a three-month state of emergency. Tens of thousands accused of links to the group led by US-based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen, blamed by authorities for the attempted coup, have been detained or dismissed from their jobs in a relentless crackdown following the coup. The government has imposed a three-month state of emergency after the botched coup, and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has suggested there might be a need to extend the measure even up to a year.
Lyle Denniston, Constitution Daily’s Supreme Court correspondent, breaks down the new cases accepted by the Court on Thursday, including four that involve constitutional questions. The Supreme Court, often interested these days in how far the First Amendment goes to protect freedom of expression, moved back into that area on Thursday as it selected new cases to be decided in the term that opens formally next Monday. Among eight new cases the Justices scheduled for review were four that involve constitutional questions, and two of those focus on the First Amendment. Beyond those four, another case involves an issue that is close to constitutional in nature – the sovereign status of America’s Indian tribes. And another turns on the duty of courts to use fair procedures – a guarantee similar to what the Constitution requires in criminal cases – when they impose money penalties on lawyers for professional misconduct.
An Egyptian court suspended on Thursday a previous ruling freezing the controversial transfer of two Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia, which had provoked protests when announced earlier this year. The decision by the urgent matters court may be used by the government as a green light to go ahead with the transfer of the islands of Tiran and Sanafir to Saudi Arabia. In June, an administrative court had overturned a maritime border agreement, signed during a visit to Cairo by Saudi Arabia's King Salman in April, that handed the two islands to Riyadh.
By Victoria Bryan BERLIN (Reuters) - The Rosetta spacecraft ended its historic mission on Friday, crashing on the surface of the dusty, icy comet it has spent 12 years chasing in a hunt that has provided insight into the early days of the solar system and captured the public's imagination. Scientists in the European Space Agency control center in Darmstadt, Germany, clapped and hugged as confirmation of the end of the mission came at 1119 GMT. Rosetta completed its free-fall descent at the speed of a sedate walk, joining the probe Philae, which landed on the comet in November 2014 in what was considered a remarkable feat of precision space travel.
If you're a Yahoo user, you already know that 500 million Yahoo accounts were compromised by malicious hackers, and that you should reset your Yahoo password. What Yahoo didn't tell you was that you may also need to unlink, and then relink, all the mobile devices that access your Yahoo account. As Dustin Childs and Simon Zuckerbraun of Trend Micro pointed out in a recent blog post, even if you've reset your regular password, malicious hackers may have already give their own mobile devices permanent access to your account.
Logan, a 31-pound Maine coon, often spends his days lounging around the steps of the Best Western Silver Fox Inn, although guests usually do a double take before realizing he's a cat.

A South Carolina teenager suspected of killing his father and wounding two boys and a teacher at an elementary school was charged on Friday with one count of murder and three counts of attempted murder, the office of the local solicitor said. The 14-year-old boy, who has not been named by authorities, will remain in custody for at least another 48 hours after he appeared before a state judge for a hearing behind closed doors on Friday, a staff member at the 10th Judicial Circuit solicitor's office confirmed to Reuters by telephone. The hearing did not consider the question of whether he will be tried as an adult, according to the solicitor's office.
With countless software companies proclaiming they know how to build better cars, we were relieved to find Lexus has built an actual car rather than a “user experience,” which is what “UX” stands for in the tech community. Instead, the Lexus UX concept is our first good look at the luxury brand’s subcompact crossover that will join the growing fray of shrunken, premium SUVs that includes the BMW X1, Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Infiniti QX30. Compared to the smallest Lexus crossover today, the NX, the UX is 9.1 inches stubbier, 5.0 inches lower, 1.2 inches wider, and sports a 0.8-inch tighter wheelbase.
Pentagon chief Ashton Carter on Friday criticized the "deeply troubling" remarks by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, in which he likened his deadly war on crime to Hitler's efforts to exterminate Jews. Carter's comments came during a regional security summit with Southeast Asian ally nations, where he sought to reassure counterparts that Washington's ongoing commitment to its Asia "rebalance" would continue into the next US administration. Earlier Friday, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte had made televised remarks drawing parallels between his campaign to wipe out his country's drug problem and Adolf Hitler's genocidal drive.
A Kentucky Republican state House candidate is refusing to apologize for several Facebook posts depicting President Obama and the first lady as monkeys, but the state GOP chairman has condemned the posts and issued his own apology for them. The posts on Dan Johnson's Facebook page include a picture of a chimpanzee with the caption "Obama's baby picture" and a photo that had been altered to give Obama and his wife ape-like features.
