Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren used Donald Trump’s own words to mock him in a campaign speech for Hillary Clinton. On Monday, Warren riffed on the phrase “nasty woman” as she criticized Trump for his past treatment of women during a Clinton rally at Saint Anselm College, a liberal arts school in Manchester, N.H. “Well, I’ve got news for you, Donald Trump.
Volkswagen Group of America announced Tuesday that a United States District Court has approved its settlement regarding 2.0-liter diesels in the US. This news comes just over four months after the initial announcement of the $14.7 billion settlement proposal, and more than a year after the Dieselgate scandal first broke. Judge Charles R. Breyer of the Northern District of California US District Court made the decision to approve the settlement.
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio to stand trial in December on a criminal contempt charge of violating the terms of a court ruling against the controversial sheriff in a 2007 racial profiling case. The latest court order setting Arpaio's trial date for Dec. 6 means that the six-term Maricopa County sheriff will be spared from facing the contempt charge in court until well after his bid for re-election on Nov. 8. Under contempt proceedings approved by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, Arpaio is accused of disobeying the terms of a 2011 court injunction barring his officers from stopping and detaining motorists based solely on suspicion that they were in the country illegally.
Migrants pushed against police lines outside Calais’ “Jungle” camp on Tuesday, waiting for processing as government workers prepared to move in to start clearing the sprawling shanty-town. Hundreds of camp dwellers, many carrying all their possessions in backpacks, waited for buses to take them on to temporary accommodation across France, as the start of a massive operation to demolish the site.
While you probably think of Honda as a fairly fuel-efficient carmaker, the company actually lags far behind many other big automotive brands when it comes to offering hybrid and electric cars. CEO Takahiro Hachigo wants to see the majority of Honda’s American sales be hybrids and EVs by 2030, according to Automotive News. Honda will shoot to get those categories to make up two-thirds of its cars and trucks worldwide by that point, Hachigo told AN, but “the ratio will be far higher in the U.S.” Plug-in vehicles, he said, will make up the core of the American market.
Iraq launched a broad offensive to retake Mosul from the Islamic State group a week ago. What have Iraqi forces retaken? Federal forces operating out of the main staging base of Qayyarah have taken dozens of small villages south of Mosul and are working their way up the Tigris Valley.

Gordon Hamilton, 50, a University of Maine professor in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences, and a researcher with the Climate Change Institute, fell 100 feet (30.48 metres) into the crevasse, the NSF statement said. Hamilton was part of a team camped in a heavily crevassed area known as the Shear Zone, around 25 miles (40.23 km) south of McMurdo Station, the largest of the three U.S. research stations in Antarctica. British explorer Henry Worsley died earlier this year of exhaustion and dehydration as he tried to cross Antarctica unaided.

The president of the Mississippi NAACP is demanding a federal hate crime investigation after the parents of a black high school student said as many as four white students put a noose around their son's neck at school. "No child should be walking down the hall or in a locker room and be accosted with a noose around their neck," president Derrick Johnson said Monday during a news conference in Wiggins. Johnson said the incident happened Oct. 13 near a locker room at Stone High School in Wiggins.
Convincing North Korea to abandon nuclear weapons is a "lost cause," America's top intelligence official said, causing concern in the State Department and ally South Korea over an issue of long-standing US policy. The United States has always maintained it cannot accept North Korea as a nuclear state and, under President Barack Obama, has made any talks with the North conditional on Pyongyang first making some tangible commitment towards denuclearisation.
Welcome to Test Days, the annual confab of the International Motor Press Association (IMPA). IMPA has been staging these events for more than 50 years, beginning at the now-shuttered Bridgehampton circuit on Long Island, with intervening years at both Lime Rock and Pocono Speedway, before finding our latest, gracious host in Monticello Motor Club – the 4.1-mile driver’s paradise in the heart of what used to be known as the Borscht Belt. As one of the jurors in the North American Car of the Year awards, I also use Test Days to re-familiarize myself with cars that may be front-runners among voters, such as the Volvo XC90 SUV.
Police in Tunisia have arrested two American citizens on suspicion of terrorist activities after finding videos and pictures praising Islamic State, a security official said on Tuesday. The official said the suspects, aged 29 and 32, had come to Tunisia to study and that one of them had married a Tunisian woman who had traveled to Syria. Tunisia suffered several major attacks claimed by Islamic State last year.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accused the opposition-majority legislature Tuesday of staging a "parliamentary coup" after lawmakers voted to put him on trial amid a tense political and economic crisis. Accused by the legislature of "abandoning his post" and "criminal and political responsibility" for Venezuela's descent into crisis, Maduro fired back by calling a meeting of his National Defense Council on Wednesday -- the same day the opposition plans massive anti-government protests. Lawmakers earlier voted to open a "political and criminal trial" against Maduro over what they themselves have declared a coup: authorities' decision last week to halt their efforts to call a referendum on removing the leftist leader from power.
A deadly blaze claimed the life of a Washington State toddler who was found next to the remains of his faithful pup that stayed by the boy’s side as flames engulfed their home, authorities said. The body of a 3-year-old boy, identified by relatives as Noah Whitcher, was discovered up against a wall on a bed in the Hillyard home at about 11:30 p.m. Friday, Spokane Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer told InsideEdition.com. Little Noah was found huddled with his dog, who also died, and a teddy bear, officials said.
Warming ocean waters have been destabilizing some of the massive ice shelves around Antarctica for years. “The system is no longer in equilibrium,” said Ala Khazendar of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the leader of the study published in the journal Nature Communications. As glaciers flow slowly off the edge of the continent and into the sea, they begin to float while still attached to the land in a zone scientists call the “grounding line.” It’s natural for seawater to melt the resulting ice shelves, “or pieces of the ice shelf detach from the front, forming what we know as icebergs,” said Khazendar.
Young Americans across races and ethnicities are now more likely to support Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump for president, and to say the former secretary of state will help people like them, a new GenForward poll shows. Clinton's largest advantage is among young African-Americans, Latinos and Asian-Americans, but the survey also shows a shift to her among young whites in the last month. GenForward is a survey of adults age 18 to 30 by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
A human tree spotted blocking traffic at an intersection Monday afternoon is killing it in the costume department. A local TV editor posted a video on Twitter Monday afternoon of what appears to be a man dressed convincingly as a tree on a crosswalk in Portland, Maine. Another local TV producer at the scene reported on Twitter that the #humantree wouldn't speak to reporters.
A sheriff's investigator says his inquiry so far supports the claim that white students placed a noose around the neck of a black student at a south Mississippi high school. Stone County Sheriff's Capt. Ray Boggs says Monday he's still investigating the claims of Hollis and Stacey Payton that their son was assaulted Oct. 13 during a break at a football practice at Stone County High School.
The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 lapped the Nurburgring in 7:29:60—and Chevy caught the whole event on video. In another sign of the impending extinction of the manual transmission, the ‘Ring-record ZL1 was equipped with the GM’s new 10-speed automatic transmission developed in conjunction with Ford. As Chevrolet was more than happy to point out in the official press release, that 7:29.60 lap time is a full 11.67 seconds than the outgoing fifth-gen Camaro ZL1.
On Sunday evening, Elon Musk, the billionaire tech mogul and nerd hero behind Tesla Motors, hosted a special two-hour Q&A session on Reddit. The AMA, which lasted roughly two hours, was intended as a supplement to the presentation he gave on during last month’s International Astronautical Congress. Which, in turn, meant questions were limited to the fledgling commercial rocket program, and Interplanetary Transport System, not Musk's electric car company or recently consolidated renewable energy firm, SolarCity.
By Gul Yusufzai QUETTA, Pakistan (Reuters) - Militant group Islamic State said on Tuesday that fighters loyal to its movement attacked a police training college in Quetta in southwest Pakistan in a raid that officials said killed 59 people and wounded more than 100. Pakistani authorities have blamed another militant group, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), for the late-Monday siege, though the Islamic State claim included photographs of three alleged attackers.
Famed ’60s anti-war activist Tom Hayden, whose name became forever linked with the celebrated Chicago 7 trial, Vietnam War protests and his ex-wife actress Jane Fonda, has died. Hayden, once denounced as a traitor by his detractors, overcame his past and won election to the California Assembly and Senate where he served for almost two decades as a progressive force on such issues as the environment and education. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti praised Hayden.
