Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince appeared Tuesday at a glitzy investment forum boycotted by a host of global business leaders, as the petro-state admitted it is facing a "crisis" after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman smiled and took selfies with cheering delegates during his 15-minute appearance on the opening day of the three-day Future Investment Initiative (FII), which is aiming to project the historically insular Gulf kingdom as a lucrative business destination. The conference, nicknamed "Davos in the desert", has been overshadowed by the outcry over the murder of Khashoggi inside the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul on October 2, with a string of leading international investors pulling out over the case.

Once bitter foes, President Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz have developed nothing short of a political bromance. Trump headlined his “Make America Great Again” rally in front of more than 17,000 supporters at the Toyota Center in Houston on the first day of early voting in Texas for the 2018 midterms. “You know, we had our little difficulties,” Trump said about his relationship with Cruz.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott points out damage caused by Hurricane Michael as he flies over the Florida Panhandle on Oct. 11, 2018. Nearly two weeks after it made landfall on the Florida Panhandle, Hurricane Michael is still reshaping that state’s high-profile Senate race. The historic storm did the most damage in counties where Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who is now challenging Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, needs high turnout — by voters who may still be displaced from their homes and preoccupied with putting their lives back together.
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake admits he had doubts about the testimony of newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The retiring Republican senator added that hearing from the Kavanaugh protesters who confronted him prior to the vote influenced his decision to ask for a delay allowing the FBI to investigate the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. “I felt for them,” Flake said of the two women protesters who confronted him in a Senate elevator.
A New Jersey woman credited with helping foil a potential school attack in Kentucky said she was "protecting my babies" when she followed her gut and tipped off police about harassing Facebook messages that police say are linked to the suspect. The tip from the woman, Koeberle Bull, led Kentucky authorities to Dylan Jarrell, who possessed a firearm, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, a bulletproof vest, a 100-round high-capacity magazine and a "detailed plan of attack," Kentucky State Police said last week. The head of state police said he believed lives were saved when investigators interceded as Jarrell was leaving his driveway last Thursday.

Some knew it as the “sad side” of Ellis Island. A century ago, the hospital complex at the historic Ellis Island immigration inspection station was the place where approximately one out of every 10 arrivals who were too sick to be allowed into the country were sent to recover, or to die. The 29-building medical complex — in its day the largest public health institution in the United States — was itself left to die when the immigration station closed in 1954.
Hundreds of protesters gathered in New York City’s Washington Square Park on Sunday night, angrily reacting to reports that the Trump administration is considering a narrower legal definition of gender.

If you were only following the midterms via cable news and Twitter, you might guess that districts from sea to shining sea were focused on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and the latest tweets from President Trump. The nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation released a poll last week that found a majority of voters both nationally and in battleground areas with competitive elections said health care was “very important” in making their voting decisions this November. A June survey from the Pew Research Center found that 48 percent of respondents thought Democrats would do a better job on health care versus just 32 percent for Republicans.
U.S. national security adviser John Bolton said on Tuesday that Russian meddling in U.S. elections had backfired on Moscow, providing a lesson to the Kremlin: "Don't mess with American elections." Speaking during a visit to Moscow, Bolton said there was no evidence that the meddling - which Russia has denied - materially affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, but that it did create mistrust toward Russia. U.S. intelligence agencies say Russia carried out a campaign of hacking and propaganda targeting the 2016 poll in an attempt to sow discord, discredit Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and boost support for Republican Donald Trump.
The entrance to Yale University Law School, one of the most famous and respected law schools in America, was tagged with the words of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford on Monday morning. “Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter...” reads the white graffiti on the paving stones outside the Sterling Law building on Yale’s campus in New Haven, Connecticut. The quote is taken directly from Ford’s testimony last month during the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a 1990 graduate of Yale Law.

The widow of former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko, who was killed by radioactive poison in 2006, said Tuesday that the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi should be a wake-up call to the world about the deadly behavior of authoritarian states. Speaking at an event at the British Parliament, Marina Litvinenko said her husband's murder — and "the example of the Russian president" — may have contributed to an environment in which governments think "it's just so easy to kill people" without provoking a strong response. Alexander Litvinenko, a Russian agent turned Kremlin critic, died in November 2006 after drinking tea laced with polonium-210 at a London hotel.
