The Chicago Tribune endorsed Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson on Friday as a “principled option” beyond the typical red-blue binary. The conservative paper’s editorial board argued that the Democratic and Republican parties have drifted so far from the United States’ political mainstream and failed to nominate suitable candidates to the top of their tickets. The paper’s editorial is as much an indictment of Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump as it is an endorsement of former New Mexico Gov. Johnson.

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.

On Monday, in the charming colonial city of Cartagena, the Colombian government signed a peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), one of the most vicious and indomitable guerrilla movements in the Americas.

The military momentum in the conflict has long been on the side of the government.

US health authorities on Friday extended to six months a warning to men about the risky time period for sexually spreading Zika virus, which often carries no symptoms but can cause devastating birth defects. Men who live in or have traveled to an area of active Zika transmission are now urged to wait half a year before attempting conception, regardless of whether they have been diagnosed with Zika or showed any symptoms, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. "Based on new though limited data, CDC now recommends that all men with possible Zika virus exposure who are considering attempting conception with their partner, regardless of symptom status, wait to conceive until at least six months after symptom onset (if symptomatic) or last possible Zika virus exposure (if asymptomatic)," it said in a statement.
By Fedja Grulovic and Marko Djurica VRSKA CUKA, Serbia (Reuters) - Across south-east Europe, governments are throwing up barriers to keep out migrants arriving via Turkey, but numbers are still creeping up as rougher seas lead more to try this Balkan route rather than risk a Mediterranean crossing. Since July, Serbian border guards have stopped more than 10,000 migrants attempting to cross from Bulgaria and Macedonia, but charities have reported sharply lengthening queues for food in Serbian refugee camps over recent days. Last autumn, hundreds of thousands of migrants trekked up from Turkey through the rocky Balkan peninsula, hoping to enter the European Union's passport-free Schengen zone by crossing into Hungary.

Samsung likely wants nothing more than to put the Galaxy Note 7 debacle behind it, but that isn't in the cards just yet. The ordeal began shortly after Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 launch last month, when BGR was among the first to cover a report from an early adopter whose Galaxy Note 7 exploded while it was charging. Before Samsung fans knew what hit them, the company was issuing a worldwide recall for its hotly anticipated flagship phablet.
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.

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.

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.
