Of all the rumors bouncing around the automotive world, perhaps none is quite as perennial as the story that Mazda will resurrect the rotary-powered sports car from the grave. According to the report, which comes to us from Japanese website Holiday Auto by way of Autoblog, the new RX-9 will be powered by a 1.6-liter twin-rotor Wankel engine assisted by a turbocharger.

Federal prosecutors say a former soldier who lied his way to a Purple Heart by faking injuries from the Iraq War cheated Washington state and the federal government out of more than $750,000 — about three times what investigators cited when they first charged him with fraud in 2014. Darryl Wright, a former Idaho National Guardsman, appeared for sentencing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma, where Judge Benjamin Settle said he wanted to hear additional testimony about Wright's mental health before issuing punishment.

Richard Blumenthal, who issued a letter to its manufacturer, Mylan, demanding that the company lower the price of the life-saving device.

The first in a series of three photos that emerged on social media on Tuesday shows a woman dressed in black leggings and a blue tunic, lying on a towel on the beach in Nice, France. The photographed interaction is the latest incident that has drawn attention to French government officials’ criticism of women’s full-body swimwear, which has resulted in bans on swimsuits known as “burkinis” in a number of seaside towns in France. According to Rudy Salles, the deputy mayor of Nice who spoke to the BBC about the photographs on Wednesday, women who cover themselves up at the beach pose a security threat to other beachgoers.

By Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. Navy ship fired warning shots toward an Iranian fast-attack craft that approached two U.S. ships, a Pentagon spokesman said on Thursday, in the most serious of a number of incidents in the Gulf area this week.

Tensions have increased in the Gulf in recent days despite an improvement in relations between Iran and the United States.

Mohamed Amiin Ali Roble, 20, was charged Wednesday with providing and conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Roble's name first surfaced in May during the federal trial of three Minnesota men who were convicted of conspiring to join the Islamic State group.
Radford’s account, which was compellingly retold by Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan in their recent book The Inner Lives of Markets, explains that, in the absence of paper money, prisoners had to pick another currency to enable their transactions: cigarettes. “A ration of margarine might be bought for seven cigarettes, the equivalent, for instance, of one and a half chocolate bars, and so on,” Fisman and Sullivan write. Be they in wartime Bavaria or modern-day America, a surprising number of prisoners have lived in systems whose internal economies have centered on tobacco.

As the search for survivors ground on, Premier Matteo Renzi pledged new money and measures Thursday to rebuild quake-devastated central Italy amid mounting soul-searching over why the seismic-prone country has continually failed to ensure its buildings can withstand such catastrophes. A day after the deadly quake killed 250 people, a 4.3 magnitude aftershock sent up plumes of thick gray dust in the hard-hit town of Amatrice. Firefighters and rescue crews using sniffer dogs worked in teams around the hard-hit areas in central Italy, pulling chunks of cement, rock and metal from mounds of rubble where homes once stood.
With the possible exceptions of maple syrup and ice hockey, nothing symbolizes Canada quite like “mounties,” the police officers who patrol on horseback Canada’s rugged frontiers and historically wore scarlet tunics, riding boots, and flat-brimmed campaign hats. Now, some of those mounties will also be allowed to wear hijabs, in line with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s efforts to welcome people of different faiths into government service. “This is intended to better reflect the diversity in our communities and encourage more Muslim women to consider the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a career option,” a spokesman for Canada’s public safety minister told the news wire service Agence France-Presse.

By Amy Sawitta Lefevre BANGKOK (Reuters) - A second person has died from injuries sustained when two bombs exploded earlier this week at a hotel in Thailand's southern coastal town of Pattani, officials said on Friday. The attack late on Tuesday at a hotel in Pattani, one of three Muslim-dominated provinces in the country's south, followed a string of bombings and arson attacks across seven provinces in Thailand's central south that killed four people and targeted tourist spots.
