When Serrano went over to her friend’s house for dinner last week, she was surprised when she noticed the TV was on and tuned to the final debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, held at a nearby university.

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.

Turkey's prime minister says the country will not participate in the United States' operation to kick the Islamic State group out of their capital Raqqa if Syrian Kurdish fighters are included. The U.S. considers the Democratic Union Party, or PYD, and its armed wing, the People's Protection Units, or YPG, as the most effective ground force in the fight against IS and has said they will be part of the offensive. Russia says its embassy in Damascus has been shelled by militants holed up on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, but no one has been hurt.
Ride-sharing cab service Uber on Friday lost a British tribunal case brought by drivers demanding basic workers' rights, in a decision that could affect thousands of workers. The Central London Employment Tribunal ruled in favour of two drivers who argued that they should receive holiday and sick pay and be paid Britain's national minimum wage as they were effectively employees of the California-based tech company. "We are delighted that the employment tribunal has found in favour of our clients," Nigel Mackay from law firm Leigh Day said after the decision.
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.
Images taken by a NASA Mars orbiter indicate that Europe's ill-fated Mars lander left a small crater on the Red Planet's surface, backing up scientists' theory that the craft hit the ground at high speed. The disc-shaped, 577-kg (1,272 lb) Schiaparelli probe, part of the Russian-European ExoMars program to search for evidence of life on Mars, was destroyed last week when its thrusters stopped firing too soon during its descent to the surface. Scientists believe that the Schiaparelli lander plummeted to the ground from a height of 2 to 4 km (1.2 to 2.5 miles), hitting the ground at more than 300 km/h instead of touching down softly as it was supposed to.
Apple is virtually guaranteed to release two new MacBook Pros tomorrow. This is a good thing, because the MacBook Pro lineup is in dire need of an update. It was the first Apple laptop I owned, the first laptop I bought with my own money, and the much-needed replacement for an Acer laptop that got RMAed three times in four months.

As it turns out, it was not grand theft auto, but merely a case of mistaken identity. Erin Hatzi’s 2001 red Subaru vanished from her Portland, Ore., driveway Tuesday night. Portland Police Department officers just happened to be driving by and noticed the car and ran its plates.
A University of Wisconsin-Madison student already accused of sexually assaulting a woman in his apartment this month has been charged with sexually assaulting four other women since early 2015.

Syrian opposition fighters on Friday launched a major assault on government forces to break a months-long siege of rebel-held neighbourhoods of the battered city of Aleppo. Rebel groups including the powerful Ahrar al-Sham faction and former Al-Qaeda affiliate Fateh al-Sham Front fired waves of rockets into government-held western Aleppo, killing at least 15 civilians, a monitor said. The rebels also targeted government positions east of Aleppo city and in the coastal province of Latakia, including the Hmeimim military base that is used by Russian forces allied with the regime.
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.

The countries that decide the fate of Antarctica's waters 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. The U.S. and New Zealand have been pushing for a marine reserve for years.
A Wisconsin city clerk raised concerns about opening an early voting site on the state university’s Green Bay campus in part because she feared it would encourage more Democratic-leaning students to vote, a move that some say could suppress the vote along partisan ties. As early voting becomes a more popular choice for people across the nation, political parties have tried to strategically use or block the option, which tends to appeal most to low-income voters who don’t necessarily have flexible schedules or time to wait in line to vote on one designated day. In theory, early voting strengthens a democracy by increasing participation.

White House hopeful Hillary Clinton said the proposed mega-merger of AT&T and Time Warner "raises questions and concerns" and merits further study. AT&T and Time Warner, home of CNN and HBO, have said the proposed $108.7 billion deal will benefit consumers as they gird for anti-trust challenges from politicians and regulators. "It raises questions and concerns, and they should be looked into," Clinton told reporters Wednesday.
A federal judge in the conspiracy trial of seven people who took part in the armed occupation of a U.S. wildlife center in Oregon dismissed a juror over questions of bias on Wednesday, then ordered jury deliberations to begin anew with a replacement. "It's a new jury, a new day, a new start," U.S. District Judge Anna Brown said as she directed an alternate to step in for the disqualified juror, stressing that the reconstituted panel must renew its consideration of the case from scratch. The jury's impartiality came under scrutiny on Tuesday, on day three of deliberations, when the panel sent a handwritten note to the judge stating that one juror had professed to being "very biased" at the outset of the jury sessions last week.
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.
