The video, posted to Facebook last month, shows 22 men standing completely still and brandishing guns outside 5012 Powell Drive in Huntsville. The mannequin challenge is a viral Internet video trend in which people try to stay completely still as if they were part of a Madame Tussauds wax exhibit, typically with the song “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background. The shootout video, however, makes use of “Ain’t No Comin’ Down” by TEC & Maine Musik.
Hordes of Japanese fighter-bombers swooped down from the sky onto the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor, killing thousands of soldiers and sailors, devastating the American fleet, and propelling the United States into World War II with extreme prejudice. Two and a half months of repairs were enough to put her back into service, where she became a workhorse of the Pacific fleet for the rest of the war.

Significant Islamic State group counterattacks in southeastern Mosul inflicted heavy losses on Iraqi forces overnight after a new push deeper into the city this week, according to an Iraqi Army officer. Despite the counterattacks, the fresh Iraqi push appears to have relieved pressure on Iraq's special forces who have been largely leading the fight inside the city on the eastern front. Wednesday afternoon, the special forces announced new gains.

Ronald dela Rosa, director general of the Philippine National Police (PNP), is treated more like a rock star than a policeman. Aside from President Rodrigo Duterte, dela Rosa is the central figure in the country’s ongoing drug crackdown that began on July 1 — dela Rosa’s first day on the job, one day after Duterte took office. It has earned international notoriety for Duterte — and for dela Rosa, the title of country’s top cop.
Today on Drive Wire: Dodge has announced the first all-wheel-drive muscle car with the 2017 Challenger GT. While we've known about the impending Challenger GT for a couple of months now, the fact that it will be all-wheel-drive instead of the standard rear does come as a surprise. People have been retrofitting all-wheel-drive systems to muscle cars for years, but the new Dodge Challenger GT will be the first muscle car with no retrofitting necessary.
Donald Trump’s former campaign manager says the president-elect has already accomplished more in the month since his election than President Obama has in the last four years. “Donald Trump, in the first four weeks of his presidency, has done more to help this country than I think Barack Obama has done in the last four years,” Corey Lewandowski said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday. Lewandowski, an informal Trump adviser expected to join his administration, said Trump has a shown a stronger “commitment” to the U.S. military and American businesses than the Obama administration’s second term by vowing “to reduce the amount of government regulations so they can continue to grow” at a rate higher than the current economy.
It’s rare that a vehicle can be so ahead of its time when first introduced that it remains relevant for the good part of a decade. Somehow, the Volvo XC60 has accomplished such a feat with minimal updates and fairly safe styling. The 2017 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD doesn’t look that much different from the 2010 XC60 which is actually quite impressive.
By Saif Hameed BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's parliament speaker called on Thursday for a government inquiry into air strikes on an Islamic State-held western border town which local politicians said had killed around 60 people, mostly civilians. Hospital sources and two parliamentarians said the air strikes killed dozens of civilians, including 12 women and 19 children on Wednesday in a market district of the town of Qaim, close to the border with Syria. Parliament speaker Salim al-Jabouri, the most senior Sunni Muslim politician in mainly Shi'ite-ruled Iraq, said the air strikes targeted "civilian shopping centers, causing the martyrdom and wounding of dozens", and called for the perpetrators to be punished.
Months after heavy flooding destroyed parts of North Korea’s northeastern region in late August and early September, Kim Jong Un’s regime has termed the disaster recovery after mass mobilization a “miraculous victory” for the East Asian country. The heavy rains triggered by typhoon Lionrock in late August and early September led to severe floods in North Korea, leaving hundreds of people dead and tens of thousands others stranded. A mass mobilization movement, referred to as the “200-day battle,” has been credited for the “victory” on the “reconstruction front” in North Hamgyong Province, state-controlled news agency KCNA reported Wednesday.
Rescuers scrabbled through the rubble of shattered homes, shops and mosques in search of survivors Wednesday after a powerful earthquake struck western Indonesia and killed at least 97 people. The shallow 6.5-magnitude quake struck Aceh province, one of the areas worst affected by the devastating 2004 tsunami, at dawn as many in the mainly Muslim region on Sumatra island were preparing for morning prayers. "So far 97 people have been killed and the number keeps growing," Aceh military chief Tatang Sulaiman told AFP after the army took over responsibility for the search and rescue.

A famous Russian submarine design bureau is working on a drone that imitates submarines. The drone, tentatively named "Surrogat," could be a useful decoy in baiting a trap…or escaping one. The Rubin Design Bureau of St. Petersberg, designer of Cold War Soviet missile submarines including the enormous Typhoon class, is working on this drone for the Russian Navy.
You and I both know that air-cooled Porsches have always been cool. The escalating interest—and skyrocketing market value—of the air-cooled Porsche has been synchronous with the rise of social media, which allows anyone with an internet connection to follow the personalities, coach builders, and collectors upholding the air-cooled tradition. The term “outlaw” is thrown around a lot in the air-cooled community, but Emory is one of the progenitors of this tradition—only without the connotations that come to mind when generally thinking about hot rodding, though.
While our eyes were glued to the television on election night, First Lady Michelle Obama had other plans. "I went to bed," she told People in a joint interview with her husband President Barack Obama. The Obamas were vocal supporters of Hillary Clinton's run for president.
As I tap out this Lexus GS F review, I’m doing the insomnia thing in a hotel in Seville, Spain, hours before my first drive of the Lexus LC500, a roughly $100,000 luxury coupe. With its audacious show-car styling—a welcome light in the tunnel for Lexus’ currently murky design language—the LC500 also spotlights the mission of Akio Toyoda, the Toyota chairman, “master driver,” and Lexus chief branding officer, to purge Lexus of boring cars once and for all. As Lexus reminds us in Spain, Toyoda’s 2011 trip to the Pebble Beach car show was spoiled by collectors and media giving him an earful over Lexus’ approach to luxury, which has long prioritized serenity and bulletproof quality over exciting design and performance.
By Daniel Bases NEW YORK (Reuters) - Mayors from the largest U.S. cities warned President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday of the potential economic harm he might cause if he wipes out a program that allows young illegal immigrants to remain in the United States. DACA, or The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, was created through an executive order in 2012. It allows undocumented young people brought to the United States before the age of 16 to remain without fear of deportation as they pursue a higher education, work or engage in military service.
