The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday asked a U.S. judge to hold the Republican National Committee in contempt of court over allegations that Donald Trump encouraged his supporters to intimidate minority voters. The DNC accused Republicans in a court filing of violating a longstanding consent decree, which restricts Republicans' ability to question voters at the polls and prevent those people from casting a ballot. During the presidential campaign, Republican nominee Trump has asked followers to "watch" for fraud in the Nov.8 presidential election in certain areas where minority voters reside, even though no evidence of fraud exists, the filing said.

MoMA will feature the emoji in the museum's lobby starting in December, as part of an exhibit that includes other graphics and animations.

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.
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.

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.

A field of aerated cement blocks that crumble under the weight of an aircraft helped prevent Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence's campaign plane from barreling off a runway and onto a busy parkway nearby. Arrestor beds have been installed at dozens of airports across the country in recent years, including in Chicago, in Boston, in Washington, D.C., and at the New York area's three major airports. The system has been compared to driving a vehicle into gradually deepening snow, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates LaGuardia Airport, where Pence's plane landed Thursday night.

As a captive of the reviled extremist group, Murad, who today is 23, said she was tortured and raped.
