Perhaps best known as the wordsmith behind many Republican talking points, Luntz had quite a few zingers about Trump, including one about the GOP nominee’s sometimes stilted delivery of prepared speeches. “Stevie Wonder reads a teleprompter better than Donald Trump,” he jested.
In the earnings announcement released yesterday, Tesla reported a net income was $22 million, or $0.14 per share due on a total revenue of $2.3 billion. On August 29, Musk sent an email to all employees revealing that the company was on the verge of being profitable and implored them to build, sell, and deliver every vehicle possible and to cut all unnecessary expenses. When this practice was publicly brought to Musk’s attention on Twitter, he put a stop to it in a company-wide email.
An Afghan woman immortalised on a celebrated National Geographic magazine cover as a green-eyed 12-year-old girl was arrested Wednesday for living in Pakistan on fraudulent identity papers. The haunting image of Sharbat Gula, taken in a Pakistan refugee camp by photographer Steve McCurry in the 1980s, became the most famous cover image in the magazine's history. Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested Gul for fraud following a two-year investigation on her and her husband, who has absconded.
With the battle for Mosul just a week old and Iraqi forces beginning to trudge to the outskirts of the Islamic State-controlled city, the Pentagon is pushing hard for a wider offensive that will target the Syrian city of Raqqa in the coming weeks. Speaking in Paris Tuesday, Defense Secretary Ash Carter made the rare admission that the elite group was in the fight — though it’s safe to say everyone assumed it — saying, “we have put our Joint Special Operations Command in the lead of countering ISIL’s external operations,” and U.S. Special Operations Forces on the ground in Syria are working to train hundreds of Arab fighters to take part in the assault. The SecDef added that in Mosul, most of the 35 ISIS leaders the U.S.-led coalition has been targeting in the city have been killed over the past three months.
By Isla Binnie and Antonio Denti VISSO, Italy (Reuters) - Earthquakes caused widespread damage and terrified residents in central Italy overnight, two months after a strong quake left nearly 300 dead and razed villages in the same area, but no-one was killed. Several people were slightly injured, but only a few needed hospital treatment, the Civil Protection Agency said. In Visso, one of the larger hill towns hit, the mayor said most of the damage had been to buildings already weakened by the Aug. 24 earthquake.
The countries that decide the fate of Antarctica reached an historic agreement on Friday to create the world's largest marine protected area in the ocean next to the frozen continent. The agreement comes after years of diplomatic wrangling and high-level talks between the U.S. and Russia, which has rejected the idea in the past. Decisions on Antarctica require a consensus among the 25 members, a hurdle which has confounded past efforts.

For the last few years, Ferrari has followed a model-release schedule that's roughly as regular as the tides—which makes predicting when future models will show their beautiful faces rather predictible. For starters, we know almost certainly that the car will be a mid-cycle refresh of the existing F12berlinetta, not a full-blown replacement model.

Mercedes-Benz will tell you that the big story with the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 and E63 S is the amount of power flowing from its engine. All due respect to the three-pointed star, but its P.R. people are wrong on this one. No, the big story here is that
A German couple accused of luring women to their village home with personal ads went on trial Wednesday over charges they tortured and killed two of them. Wilfried and Angelika Wagener allegedly entrapped at least eight women over the years in what the media has dubbed the "house of horrors" case. Chief prosecutor Ralf Meyer on Wednesday outlined details of the case that has sparked widespread revulsion in Germany amid fears the couple may have had more victims.
Russia scrapped plans Wednesday to refuel Syria-bound warships in a Spanish port after Madrid came under pressure to refuse access to a flotilla that may be used to help attacks on Aleppo. Spain's foreign ministry said three Russian ships had been due to take on fuel and supplies at the port of Ceuta, a Spanish territory on the north coast of Africa across the sea from Gibraltar. There has been concern that the ships could take part in air strikes in Syria, where Russia has been conducting a bombing campaign for the past year in support of President Bashar al-Assad and has deployed a naval contingent to back up its operation.
By Steve Holland and Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With just over two weeks to go until the U.S. election, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump touted his newest hotel venture on Wednesday, citing it as an example of his business success and ability to "get things done" for the American people. Trump's 11th-hour detour from the campaign trail to plug his business acumen drew criticism from some of his fellow Republicans, but the former reality TV star said the project showed what he could accomplish. Formally opening the Trump International Hotel in Washington, which has been in business since last month, Trump said he would bring the same principles to running the federal government that he has used as a real estate developer.

Astronauts may have no trouble moving heavy objects in the weightlessness of space, but that doesn't mean that the experience isn't hard on their backs. Astronauts on long-duration spaceflights routinely report back pain, both during and after the flight. In a new study, researchers used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to observe the spines of six NASA astronauts before they landed, at the time of landing and about two months after they had spent upward of seven months on the International Space Station.
There is no reason Britain's June vote to leave the European Union should undermine a 1998 Northern Irish peace deal, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday. Northern Ireland voted to remain in the EU and Irish nationalist parties oppose Brexit, saying it could undermine the 1998 Belfast Agreement and reinstate a hard border with the Republic of Ireland. "I don't believe there's any reason to believe that the outcome of the referendum will do anything to undermine the absolute rock-solid commitment of this government and the people of Northern Ireland to the settlement that was set out in the Belfast Agreement," May told parliament.

At least 3,800 migrants and refugees have perished this year while trying to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe, the highest ever toll ever on the perilous route, the UN said Wednesday. "We can confirm that at least 3,800 people have been reported dead or missing in the Mediterranean Sea so far this year, making the death toll in 2016 the highest ever recorded," UN refugee agency spokesman William Spindler told AFP in an email, as the figures passed last year's mark of 3,771. Last year, more than a million people reached Europe via the Mediterranean, but crossings so far this year remain below 330,000.
Turkish police in the mainly Kurdish city of Diyarbakir on Wednesday used tear gas and water cannon to scatter protesters following the arrest of the city's popular two joint mayors for alleged links to terrorism. Gultan Kisanak, a member of parliament before becoming Diyarbakir's first female mayor in 2014, and Firat Anli, her co-mayor, were detained late on Tuesday as part of a security crackdown after more than a year of violence in the region. President Tayyip Erdogan has said the removal of elected officials and civil servants who are accused of links to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, is integral to Ankara's battle against the armed group.
