Scientific American on Tuesday endorsed Joe Biden, the first presidential endorsement in the magazine's 175-year history. Its editors said they felt “compelled” to do so because President Trump's well-documented rejection of science, from climate change to the coronavirus, has cost tens of thousands of American lives. The pandemic would strain any nation and system,” the editors wrote, “but Trump's rejection of evidence and public health measures have been catastrophic in the U.S. He was warned many times in January and February about the onrushing disease, yet he did not develop a national strategy to provide protective equipment, coronavirus testing or clear health guidelines.
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren fired the police chief and suspended her top lawyer and communications director Monday in the continuing upheaval over the suffocation death of Daniel Prude. Chief Le'Ron Singletary announced his retirement last week as part of a major shakeup of the city's police leadership but said he would stay on through the end of the month. Instead, Warren said at a news conference that she had permanently relieved him while suspending Corporation Counsel Tim Curtin and Communications Director Justin Roj without pay for 30 days following a cursory management review of the city's role in Prude's death.
Imagine a painting of a female nude but with the bare flesh of her legs and body blotched with purple, green and yellow bruises as she lies on the floor and embraces an outline of her country Belarus.

US President Donald Trump has dismissed concerns over climate change on a visit to fire-ravaged California, telling an official "I don't think science knows" about global warming. "It'll start getting cooler, you just watch," Mr Trump said after he was urged not to "ignore the science". Blazes in several states have burned vast areas of land and killed at least 36 people since August.
In a court filing on Monday, attorneys for Pervis Payne argue that in Tennessee, however, there is no procedure to allow Payne to bring his claim of intellectual disability before the courts. Tennessee has its own law forbidding the execution of the intellectually disabled, but that law does not contain a mechanism for people to reopen their cases if they were sentenced before the law went into effect, according to the court filing. State Rep. G. A. Hardaway has said he intends to file a bill to address the problem, but the next legislative session does not begin until January.

Heavy rain, pounding surf and flash floods hit parts of the Florida Panhandle and the Alabama coast on Tuesday as Hurricane Sally lumbered toward land at a painfully slow pace, threatening as much as 30 inches (76 centimeters) of rain and dangerous, historic flooding. The storm's center churned offshore 65 miles (105 kilometers) south-southeast of Mobile, Alabama, as Sally crept north-northeast toward an expected Wednesday landfall at 2 mph (3 kph), according to the National Hurricane Center. The forecast map showed the center likely coming ashore in Alabama, near the Florida line.
The European Union's chief executive, set to unveil contentious new asylum policies for the bloc next week, described immigration on Wednesday as a normal fact of life and said the continent should learn to manage it. In a major policy speech to the European Parliament that drew applause and the occasional heckle, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said immigration policy must recognise "that each human being has a solemn diginity". Since 2015, when more than a million people reached Europe by sea and thousands died trying, migration policy has been a source of quarrel within the bloc.

In a few weeks, a building that is currently operated by the Trump Shop in Cleveland will be an early voting location in our congressional district,” Hale said in a statement on Twitter.
Fox News daytime host Sandra Smith seemed to have a different take when she spoke with White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday and repeatedly grilled her on various instances during which Trump seemed to hurt his own case that—despite what you may have heard him tell Rage author Bob Woodward—he's actually been “up-playing” the coronavirus pandemic. The anchor began with Trump's claim that “herd mentality” would make the virus “disappear,” even without a vaccine. “Is the president going at it on his own with these forecasts or do the medical experts advising him agree with those forecasts?” Smith asked.

According to the Thanh Nien newspaper, the six men and one woman were found guilty of “organizing and brokering" illegal immigration by the Ha Tinh provincial court in central Vietnam.

India has doubled the budget for vital roads and bridges along the undemarcated border with China in recent years in response to Beijing's rapid infrastructure development on its side, the Indian defense minister said on Tuesday. Troops of the two countries are locked in their most serious face-offs for years along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) or informal border in the western Himalayas, raising fears of a broader conflict. One of the reasons for the tensions has been India's recent construction of roads and airfields near the border in the Ladakh region bordering Tibet, the Chinese side has said.

Joe Biden says he's begun preparing for presidential debates that begin later this month by studying President Donald Trump's past comments. “I haven't been doing mock debates very much but I've been just making sure that I understand all that he has said and hasn't said,” the Democratic presidential candidate told reporters as he prepared to fly back to his home state of Delaware on Tuesday night, after an event marking the start of Hispanic Heritage Month in Orlando, Florida. Biden said he didn't know who might play Trump when he does begin staging mock debates.

As entire towns evacuated from wildfires in southern Oregon this week, many families launched GoFundMe pages for their lost homes, with some explaining that they had no insurance, and had lost everything in the blaze. In a year that has already driven a coronavirus-shaped wedge between classes, the fire recovery efforts stand to widen the gap between the well-off—who still face the unenviable task of rebuilding—and everyone else. There are huge disparities in who has the wealth and the assets, not only to rebuild, but to evacuate in the first place,” Audrey Mechling, a policy fellow at the Oregon Center for Public Policy, a think tank focused on low- and medium-income residents of the state,...
The U.S. Supreme Court will remain closed to the public and will conduct its October oral arguments by teleconference as it extended its coronavirus-related restrictions into its new term, a court spokeswoman said on Wednesday. The court's announcement means that members of the public cannot tour the building and lawyers will present their oral arguments by phone instead of in the courtroom itself. "The court will continue to closely monitor public health guidance in determining plans for the November and December argument sessions," spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said.
