Donald Trump traveled to Indiana on Thursday to celebrate the fact that the air-conditioning and furnace manufacturer Carrier Corp. will be keeping some of its jobs in Indianapolis, instead of moving more than 2,000 to Mexico. Trump, who was introduced to the crowd by his running mate, outgoing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, praised his V.P. pick as “such a wise decision for me.” Pence played a key role in crafting the deal with Carrier.
An argument between two women in a parking lot in south Los Angeles turned (even more) violent when one of the people involved began throwing fists, which led to one of the ladies jumping into a Toyota RAV4 and taking aim at the other person and another car. Thanks to a video shared to the YouTube channel "GrindFace TV," we can see that the fight escalated to the point that the woman took to repeatedly driving her RAV4 into a BMW X3, leaving both cars severely damaged. After leaving the parking lot, the driver in the RAV4 struck a fire hydrant causing a rather spectacular geyser of water to shoot out of the ground.

Hundreds of thousands chanted "I am Fidel!" and "Viva Fidel!" as the convoy headed on a long trip through the countryside that will end with a burial in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba on Sunday.
China's coastguard rescued two Filipino fishermen from a capsized boat near a disputed South China Sea shoal on Friday, underlining the fast thawing of ties between two countries long at odds over sovereignty. A Philippine coastguard vessel navigated choppy waters to collect the two fishermen from the Chinese ship, in what would be the first time in four years both countries' coastguards were in close proximity in the Scarborough Shoal, a rocky outcrop at the heart of years of diplomatic tension. China "will continue to patrol and keep watch in waters around Huangyan Island and faithfully carry out its responsibilities and mission to safeguard the peace, tranquility and order in relevant waters", he said, using the Chinese name for Scarborough Shoal.

The mother and father arrived shortly after the boy entered a classroom in the northern Utah city of Bountiful and fired one round into the ceiling, injuring no one but leaving a hole the size of a small plate, Bountiful Police Chief Tom Ross said. The suspect also pointed the shotgun at his own neck, Ross said.
Faced with a dire U.N. warning of a possible genocide in South Sudan, the United States was set this week to finally embrace an arms embargo against the world’s newest country to ratchet down the military might of its warring parties and, potentially, help spare the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians caught in the crossfire of worsening civil war. The South Sudanese military, which built up its arsenal during three years of civil war, is poised to launch an offensive as the annual dry season — prime time for fighting — resumes in December. On Wednesday, Keith Harper, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Council, told diplomats in Geneva that South Sudan’s government has mobilized 4,000 troops to carry out attacks against towns in the country’s southern Equatoria provinces, where he said at least 1,901 homes have been destroyed in fighting over the last two months.

By Sarah Marsh and Diego Oré JOVELLANOS, Cuba (Reuters) - Feted by cheering Cubans, a funeral cortege carried the ashes of Fidel Castro out of Havana on Wednesday on a three-day journey to his final resting place in the east of the island where he launched the Cuban Revolution six decades ago. Cubans on the roadside chanted "Fidel!" and waved small Cuban flags, displaying revolutionary zeal or nationalist pride for a man who ruled Cuba for 49 years with a mix of charisma and iron will, creating a Communist state at the U.S. doorstep and becoming a central figure in the Cold War.
