Down Ticket is Yahoo News’ complete guide to the most fascinating House, Senate and governors’ races of 2016.

Two strong earthquakes rocked central Italy on Wednesday, toppling buildings and injuring dozens of people, according to initial reports, two months after a devastating tremor killed nearly 300 in the same region. The first 5.5 magnitude quake sent people running out of their houses, likely saving lives when the second, more destructive, 6.1 magnitude one struck two hours later. Several dozen people were treated for light injuries or shock, civil protection chief Fabrizio Curcio told a late night news conference, but no serious injuries had been reported.

The MRO took a photo of Schiaparelli last week, revealing the site of the crater, but the new high-resolution photo shows more of the details of the crash site and its surroundings. The photos show a new, dark patch on the Martian surface that scientists think is the 15 by 40 meter crater left behind when Schiaparelli slammed into the planet after its engines unexpectedly shut off early, leaving it to free-fall and impact at high speed.
The government has issued new rules meant to help students get their federal loans erased in cases involving fraud and misconduct by their schools. Federal education officials have been working to create a more detailed system for students to file claims since the Education Department received thousands of claims from former students of the now-defunct Corinthian Colleges chain, which closed or sold all of its campuses last year amid allegations of fraud. The process had previously been guided by rules from 1995 that provided little detail about when and how students could submit claims, and how the department should resolve them.
Syrian rebels launched a major assault Friday aimed at breaking a months-long siege of opposition-held districts of Aleppo, as regime ally Russia held off on renewed air strikes. The European Union said late Friday its top diplomat Federica Mogherini was heading to Iran and Saudi Arabia for talks on Syria's five-year conflict. Rebel groups including the Ahrar al-Sham faction and former Al-Qaeda affiliate Fateh al-Sham Front fired rockets into government-held western Aleppo, killing at least 15 civilians, a monitor said.
Depending on who you ask, Apple's special Mac event yesterday was either a rousing success or a hyped up disappointment. On the one hand, we finally got the long overdue MacBook Pro update we've all been waiting for. In fact, for a Pro device, there are actually a number of valid complaints one can make about Apple's new MacBook Pro lineup, from its exclusive reliance upon Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports (so long, MagSafe) to the fact that RAM configuration options max out at 16GB.
While much is known about US cyber-war and -espionage capabilities thanks to the massive data leaks of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Russia's capacity for such is much more obscure. Mr. Vyarya, a young Russian programmer, was a team member at Qrator, a leading Russian cybersecurity company that specializes in mitigating the effects of distributed denial-of-service [DDoS] attacks. According to his account, given to the independent Russian online news service Medusa, the company was approached by an intermediary from Russia's Ministry of Communications looking for a specialist to help with a particular problem.

The United States on Thursday reassured its key Asian allies Japan and South Korea that its policy seeking North Korea's nuclear disarmament remains unchanged, after its intelligence chief called it a "lost cause". Washington has always maintained it cannot accept North Korea as a nuclear state and, under President Barack Obama, has made any talks with Pyongyang conditional on the country first making some tangible commitment towards denuclearisation. US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken took issue with that view in Tokyo after a trilateral meeting with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts.

A former staffer and former appointee of Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were so eager to aid his rising political career in 2013 that they concocted a plan to create gridlock at the country's busiest bridge to punish a mayor who didn't want to go along for the ride, a federal prosecutor told jurors Friday in closing arguments at their fraud trial. Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni, along with a third alleged co-conspirator who has pleaded guilty, "shared an intense commitment to the political success of Gov. Chris Christie, and they felt they could use their political positions to execute a malicious scheme to punish a local mayor," Assistant U.S. Attorney Lee Cortes said. In his closing argument, Baroni's attorney assailed the government's star witness, David Wildstein, a former political blogger with a checkered past.

US economic growth accelerated to a 2.9 percent annual rate in the third quarter boosted by a big jump in exports and solid consumer spending, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Coming just 11 days before the presidential election in which the economy has been a major issue, the GDP data showed the strongest growth in two years, and beat the consensus forecast of 2.5 percent. The strong report may increase the pressure on the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this year, something it has not done since December 2015.

A hacked memo released by WikiLeaks has shed light on how Bill Clinton profited -- to the tune of tens of millions of dollars -- from work channeled to him by an aide who also worked for the family's charitable foundation. In the 2011 memo, Clinton aide Douglas Band said he personally provided the former president with more than 50 million dollars in "for profit" activities while he was leader of the foundation. The latest disclosures have added to a drip-drip of WikiLeaks revelations plaguing Hillary Clinton in the final stretch of her run for the White House as the Democratic nominee.
Sir Thomas Trueheart is a sweet-hearted cat that loves to snuggle with teddy bears, but the friendly kitty has a horrifying past. As a stray, Tommy was roaming around California's Antelope Valley when an unknown attacker poured acid on his head, which melted his skull and caused him to lose an eye.

By Minami Funakoshi YOKOHAMA, Japan (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Thursday his country could join naval exercises with Japan, but repeated there would be no more war games with long-time ally the United States and again gave vent to his anger against Washington. Duterte also said he had explained to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in talks on Wednesday just why he resented the United States, reiterating that Washington treated the Philippines like "dogs on a leash" and lectured about human rights in connection with his domestic campaign against drugs. The Philippine leader's visit to Japan coincides with jitters about his foreign policy after weeks of verbal attacks on the United States, including threats to end military agreements, and overtures toward China.

The original rock where Jesus Christ is traditionally believed to have been buried in Jerusalem has been exposed to the light of day for the first time in centuries. According to an exclusive report by National Geographic, a partner in the project at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the original rock surface has been covered with marble slabs since at least 1555, and possibly longer. During a conservation project to shore up the shrine surrounding the tomb, a team from the National Technical University of Athens in Greece realized that they would need to access the substructure of the shrine to restore it, said Fredrik Hiebert, the archaeologist-in-residence at the National Geographic Society.

Watson, 70, is serving a life sentence for the murders of Tate and four others at her Beverly Hills, California, home on Aug. 9, 1969.
By Andrew Cawthorne and Alexandra Ulmer CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's increasingly militant opposition stepped up its push to oust leftist leader Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday with protests that drew hundreds of thousands but also saw unrest leading to dozens of injuries and arrests.
