Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who once boasted about his robust poll numbers, has turned to criticizing them as ineffective and “rigged” now that most show his rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, with a commanding lead. Trump made the dubious claim in a morning tweet –– the latest example of his pattern of messages of mistrust and skepticism aimed at all things that portray his campaign efforts in a negative light. Monday morning on “The Chad Adams Show,” a conservative radio program in North Carolina, Trump said that pollsters focused on Democrats when asking about which candidate won the second and third debates.
Former state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, once a rising star in state politics, left a courtroom in handcuffs on Monday after getting a 10- to 23-month sentence for a retaliation scheme a judge linked to her all-consuming ego.

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.

By Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A nurse who contracted the Ebola virus while treating the first person diagnosed with the deadly disease in the United States has reached a settlement with the Dallas hospital where she was in a team caring for the man, a statement on Monday said. Terms of the deal between the hospital's owner, Texas Health Resources, and nurse Nina Pham, the first person infected with Ebola in the United States, were not disclosed. Pham sued last year, saying that Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital did not do enough to prevent her from contracting the deadly virus and invaded her privacy after she was diagnosed with it.
Qatar began three days of mourning on Monday after the death of former emir Khalifa bin Hamad Al-Thani, who oversaw the start of the country's transformation into an energy powerhouse. Prayers took place at the national mosque after which the former ruler -- who was deposed in a bloodless coup by his son Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani in 1995 -- was buried in Al Rayyan on the western fringes of Doha. Many Qataris took to social media to express their condolences and the US ambassador in Qatar, Dana Shell Smith, gave a statement to local media saying she was "saddened to learn of the passing".

Hacked emails from the personal account of Hillary Clinton's top campaign official show her aides considered inserting jokes about her private email server into her speeches at several events — and at least one joke made it into her remarks. About a month earlier, news broke of an FBI investigation into whether some of the emails that passed through Clinton's unsecured server contained classified information. Ultimately, the agency criticized Clinton for being reckless with classified information but declined to prosecute her.

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 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.

For most of his life, Dr. Harold Bornstein practiced gastroenterology at a Park Avenue office that he shared with his father, Jacob Bornstein, who died in 2010. The letter, which for most of a year was the only information the world had about Trump’s health, described an Adonis whose “strength and physical stamina are extraordinary” with “extraordinarily excellent” laboratory test results. It didn’t take long for commentators, including other physicians, to point out that Bornstein’s language seemed to borrow more from the vocabulary of Trump’s world of high-end real estate than that of medicine.

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.
Wall Street signalled scepticism on Monday that AT&T Inc would secure the government approvals needed to carry out its planned $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner Inc , with shares of both companies falling as analysts scrutinized the deal.
