Three men accused of plotting to bomb Somali immigrants in western Kansas were only preparing to defend themselves in the event of "massive social upheaval" as they accumulated firearms and ammunition, a defense attorney said Friday. The arguments were the first glimpse into the unfolding defense strategy for three men prosecutors say where conspiring to detonate truck bombs at an apartment complex where 120 Somali immigrants live in the meatpacking town of Garden City. Prosecutors contend Stein was the leader of a militia group called The Crusaders, though his attorney, Ed Robinson, denies his client even knows of such a group.
Tesla is working to start up a ride-sharing service called the Tesla Network that will compete against established companies like Uber and Lyft, the company stated on its website. "Please note that using a self-driving Tesla for car sharing and ride hailing for friends and family is fine, but doing so for revenue purposes will only be permissible on the Tesla Network, details of which will be released next year," reads a paragraph on the company's website. From the statement, it appears Tesla may attempt to lock owners out of full autonomy if they are caught using their cars for ride hailing and car-sharing services.

President Rodrigo Duterte's shock "separation" from the United States has thrown Philippine foreign policy into confusion, with the Americans saying they are baffled and some of his top aides contradicting him. The firebrand leader rarely lets a day pass without taunting or abusing the United States but his latest comments, made during a state visit to Beijing, were the strongest signal he wants to torpedo a 70-year alliance in favour of China and Russia. "I announce my separation from the United States," Duterte said Thursday as he paused to soak up the applause from hundreds of Chinese businessmen in the audience.

The attacks struck Twitter, Paypal, Spotify and other customers of an infrastructure company in New Hampshire called Dyn, which acts as a switchboard for internet traffic.

Chief Janee Harteau said Friday that an internal investigation found the officers were warranted in using deadly force in the death of the 24-year-old black man.

Jihadists staged a brazen raid on the Iraqi city of Kirkuk Friday, in what appeared to be an attempt to divert attention from the huge offensive against their Mosul bastion.

By Philip Pullella CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (Reuters) - It may come as a surprise to most people, but about 40 children were born in the bedroom of the pope at the pontifical summer residence south of Rome. Now that bedroom, which became a makeshift delivery room when the residence housed refugees during World War Two, and the rest of the papal apartments have been opened to the public as part of a museum. The frugal Pope Francis decided not to used the villa - similar to but smaller than some of Europe's royal residences, judging it too luxurious and grandiose.
It's a common misconception, but Henrik Fisker’s new electric sedan does not have gullwing doors. Those are butterfly doors, like the ones on the Mclaren F1. The image, which was released on designer-turned-carmaker Henrik Fisker’s official Twitter account on Thursday, depicts a sleek, coupe-like four-door that, to our eyes, vaguely resembles a cross between the Porsche Mission E and the Infiniti Q60. According to Business Insider, Fisker revealed a few additional details about the new car in a letter sent out to select members of the media.
The bitterness shared between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton appears intense enough even to crack the smiling facades of New York City's white tie elite. At the normally lighthearted Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner — an occasion for good-natured ribbing that precedes every presidential election — Manhattan's wealthy elite broke with tradition as boos were heard in the Waldorf Astoria hotel Thursday evening. "That's OK, I don't know who they're angry at, Hillary, you or I. For example, here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics," Trump said through the jeers from the audience at the Catholic charity fundraiser.
A powerful earthquake in western Japan knocked loose roof tiles, toppled store shelves and caused power outages Friday afternoon, but apparently caused no widespread damage. The Japan Meteorological Agency said the 6.6-magnitude quake occurred in Tottori, a prefecture on the Sea of Japan about 700 kilometers (430 miles) west of Tokyo. At least two houses collapsed, and television footage showed roof tiles knocked loose, wall fragments from a sake brewery fallen to the ground, and wine bottles and food items scattered on a store floor.
"I just want to know why?" said Tajianna Mead, of Waverly, whose 44-year-old father, Kenneth Rhoden, was among the victims. When the slayings were discovered the morning of April 22, rural Pike County in the Appalachian foothills of southern Ohio was coming to life with the colors of greening hardwoods and the white petals of dogwood trees. Union Hill Road, where seven of the victims were found on three properties, is open again to traffic.
A federal judge on Thursday ordered Virginia to reopen its voter registration window and allow residents to continue to sign up through midnight Friday, after its online registration portal was unavailable to many users earlier this week. U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton's order came in response to a lawsuit filed on Tuesday by the activist New Virginia Education Fund, which complained that the state's online voter registration portal had worked erratically in the days leading up to the state's initial Monday deadline to register. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe this year restored the right to vote to thousands of ex-felons, a move seen as potentially tipping what had been a traditional Republican stronghold in Democrats' favor.

Digital gauges first started showing up in 1980s cars to varying degrees of success. Automakers pushed hard for them, but the trend all but died in the 1990s. In the 21st century, though, digital gauges made a comeback and it looks like they're here to
