After motorists and construction workers sprang into action last week to free a woman from a burning car after a tractor trailer barreled through several cars on an upstate New York highway, the mayor of the town has released new footage of the crash as a means of trying to identify the heroes who saved the day. A tractor trailer caused a 10-car accident on Route 17 in Binghamton, New York, last Thursday afternoon. 10 people involved in the pileup were taken to local hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, Press Connects reports. Dashcam video uploaded to Facebook by the mayor of the upstate New York town, David Rich, shows the devastating wreck from the perspective of one of the cars involved in the accident.
Chessy Prout made her first public comments about the assault in an interview on NBC's "Today" show, telling what happened to her at St. Paul's School in 2014 when she was a 15-year-old freshman. The Associated Press typically does not identify victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, as Prout has done. Jurors convicted Labrie last year of misdemeanor sex assault charges and a felony charge of using a computer to lure the student.
By Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - A curious radio signal picked up by a Russian telescope is probably not a transmission from an extraterrestrial civilization, but astronomers in California are taking a second look anyway, the SETI Institute said on Tuesday. A group of Russian astronomers last year detected what appeared to be a non-naturally occurring radio signal in the general location of a star system 94 light-years from Earth.
The results of a three-year aerial survey of Africa's elephants published Thursday revealed a dramatic 30 percent decline in savannah elephant populations, largely due to poaching. "We completed a successful survey of massive scale, and what we learned is deeply disturbing," said Paul Allen, the Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist who spent $7 million (6.3 million euros) funding the census. The first-of-its-kind survey is the largest wildlife census ever and involved flying over 18 African countries with scientists and conservationists counting live elephants and carcasses to establish a baseline for future studies of elephant populations and how to protect them better.
Officials at the Pentagon thought they had a deal with their Turkish counterparts for a joint operation to take the Islamic State-held town of Jarablus. The Wall Street Journal provides a insider tick-tock of the on-and-off talks between the two countries over the past year, which culminated in the unilateral Turkish move, thrusting hundreds of Syrian rebels over the border and setting off violent clashes with U.S.-backed Kurdish YPG fighters. On Monday, U.S. officials walked a diplomatic tightrope, making clear that while Washington supported the Turkish effort to clear Jarablus of ISIS, it would also continue to back the Kurds in their fight against the terror group.
Frank Ocean is an impressive car fanatic, as proven by him penning car essays and peppering marques into lyrics from his new album, Blonde. Diametrically opposing Ocean, in both automotive taste and adroitness, is Will.I.Am. Case in point: what he’s done to this poor Tesla Model S.
SWIFT, the global financial messaging system, on Tuesday disclosed new hacking attacks on its member banks as it pressured them to comply with security procedures instituted after February's high-profile $81 million heist at Bangladesh Bank. In a private letter to clients, SWIFT said that new cyber-theft attempts - some of them successful - have surfaced since June, when it last updated customers on a string of attacks discovered after the attack on the Bangladesh central bank. "The threat is persistent, adaptive and sophisticated - and it is here to stay." The disclosure suggests that cyber thieves may have ramped up their efforts following the Bangladesh Bank heist, and that they specifically targeted banks with lax security procedures for SWIFT-enabled transfers.
One of the most memorable images of The Night Of, the now-concluded HBO miniseries that seemed only to ever deal in memorable images, was among its simplest. In Sunday’s finale, the lawyer John Stone (John Turturro) presented his client Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed) with the difficult decision of whether to report his other lawyer, Chandra (Amara Karan), for kissing Naz. Doing so could result in a mistrial—which could be a good thing for Naz, but would ruin Chandra’s career.
Donald Trump fired back at football star Colin Kaepernick on Monday, suggesting in a radio interview that the San Francisco 49ers quarterback find a new country if he isn’t happy with the United States. “I think it’s — personally — not a good thing,” Trump said on the “Dori Monson Show” on Monday, as BuzzFeed reported. It won’t happen,” the Republican presidential nominee continued.
Brazil’s Senate on Wednesday voted to remove President Dilma Rousseff from office, the culmination of a yearlong fight that paralyzed Latin America’s largest nation and exposed deep rifts among its people on everything from race relations to social spending. Rousseff was Brazil’s first female president, with a storied career that includes a stint as a Marxist guerrilla jailed and tortured in the 1970s during the country’s dictatorship. “The Senate has found that the president of the federal republic of Brazil, Dilma Vana Rousseff, committed crimes in breaking fiscal laws,” said Chief Justice Ricardo Lewandowski, who presided over the trial.
The NYPD has released a sketch of a man they believe was in the vicinity when Queens jogger Karina Vetrano was sexually assaulted and killed August 2. NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said the sketch was made with the help of a utility worker who recalled seeing the person of interest on the day the 30-year-old beauty was brutally murdered. "We want to speak to this person because we feel he was there," Boyce said of the man in the sketch.
The sheriff for metropolitan Phoenix trounced three rivals Tuesday to win his Republican primary in what could be the toughest campaign in his 24 years in office as he faces a storm of legal troubles stemming from his immigration patrols. Sheriff Joe Arpaio easily beat former Buckeye Police Chief Dan Saban and two lesser-known Republicans. Arpaio has raised a staggering amount of money for a local sheriff's race — $11.3 million and counting, most from people living in other states.

Coalition-backed Iraqi forces can retake the key northern city of Mosul from the Islamic State group by the end of the year, the commander of US forces in the Middle East said Tuesday. "It's the prime minister's objective to have that done by the end of the year," General Joe Votel, head of the US military's Central Command, told reporters in a video call. The US-led coalition fighting IS in Iraq and Syria for the past two years has for months framed the upcoming battle for Mosul as the defining fight against the jihadists in Iraq.
Take when Red Bull’s Bryce Menzies jumped 379 feet in his 900-horsepower Pro 2 racing truck. Menzies's world record only came after much testing and modification. Months ago, at an unnamed test facility outside of San Diego, Red Bull, Pennzoil and Menzies’ crew began working out inital suspension set-ups and aerodynamic tweaks—remember, this is a flying truck.
By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - The United Nations human rights office has called on French beach resorts to lift their bans on the burkini, calling them a "stupid reaction" that did not improve security but fueled religious intolerance. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein welcomed the decision by the Conseil d'Etat against the Mediterranean resort of Villeneuve-Loubet, his spokesman Rupert Colville said. A dozen other towns also have such bans.

A crane on a barge lifted the wreckage of a small sightseeing plane from a lake near New Orleans on Tuesday, the bodies of the pilot and a passenger still in the cabin, authorities said. The crane, operated by a salvage contractor, hoisted the plane onto the barge after divers first attached cables to the wreckage while it was submerged, New Orleans Fire Department spokesman Gregory Davis said. The Cessna 172 crashed into Lake Pontchartrain while attempting to land Saturday night at the New Orleans Lakefront Airport, plunging into waters about 1,000 yards off the runway.
By Christine Murray, Ana Isabel Martinez and Dave Graham MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Donald Trump told Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Wednesday he would build a border wall to keep illegal migrants out if he wins the U.S. presidency, but Pena Nieto held fast to his position that Mexico would not pay for it. Contradicting Trump's assertion that the pair did not discuss who would pay for his proposed wall, Pena Nieto said after the departure of the Republican presidential candidate that he told him during their private meeting in Mexico City that his government would not pick up the bill.
Saudi-led coalition warplanes struck a home in Yemen's rebel-held Saada province, killing 16 people, including women and children, the Iran-backed insurgents said on Wednesday. Residents said the air raids hit the house overnight, while the Huthi rebels' sabanews.net website reported that the victims were "mostly children and women from three families". The Arab coalition launched a military campaign against the Huthis and their allies in March 2015, after the Shiite rebels closed in on Gulf-backed President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi in his southern refuge in Aden forcing him into exile.
