Hunter Biden was not dishonorably discharged. Trump continued on to allege that Hunter was able to secure a position on the board of directors of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma, and also able to secure a loan from the Bank of China for the investment firm Devon Archer, only because of his father's political connections, a topic the president brings up frequently on the campaign trail. Biden ignored the charges and instead addressed the camera, speaking candidly about Hunter's struggle with addiction.
Myles Cosgrove is one of the two Louisville police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor in March. This weekend, Cosgrove's family started an online fundraiser to raise $75,000 so he can buy out the rest of his service time and retire from the force early to "focus on the safety of his family." The family wrote in the campaign page that "it has recently become clear that it will be impossible for Myles to safely return to his position."
Vice President Mike Pence stopped the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from extending a ban on cruise-ship journeys until 2021, Axios reported.

The news is the latest in a string of stories showing how the White House has sidelined scientific advice during the pandemic.
New York City restaurants welcomed patrons back inside for the first time in months on Wednesday as authorities scrambled to contain COVID-19 outbreaks in some neighborhoods and negotiators in Washington wrangled over a coronavirus relief package.

The city is deploying 400 police officers as well as other officials to improve compliance with social-distancing rules and a face-covering mandate in the affected neighborhoods.

The City of South Lake Tahoe said it began a missing person investigation with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office on Aug. 10 after a boat 29-year-old Ryan Normolye rented washed ashore in Glenbrook, Nevada without him in it.
President Donald Trump might have choked on his Egg McMuffin on Wednesday when tuning into his favorite morning show. Fresh from an aggressive debate performance which his campaign chalked up as a victory before it had even happened, Trump most likely tuned into Fox & Friends expecting the kind of sycophantic flattery he's become accustomed to over the past four years. All three of the hosts—Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy, and Ainsley Earhardt—made clear how deflated they felt the morning after the debate.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba/HONG KONG (Reuters) - The pandemic's crushing effect on international travel has grounded Canadian exports of ginseng, a root widely used in Asia to treat everything from the common cold to impotency, at a time when health is top of consumers' minds. Canada is the world's second-largest ginseng exporter after China, with most of its exports shipped to Hong Kong on their way to mainland China, Singapore and Taiwan. The pandemic has devastated the niche trade, however, in another example of the virus's disruption to the global food and agriculture supply chain.
Sri Lanka's government announced Tuesday that it will ban cattle slaughter, saying it would help the dairy industry and thereby save money used to purchase imported milk powder.

Trump had been pressed during the debate to condemn white supremacists by moderator Chris Wallace, a Fox News anchor.
Amanda Cachaldora and her family were sitting at a corner booth inside a Flanigan's restaurant in Hialeah Saturday afternoon when they noticed the indoor dining space started to fill up fast. A day earlier, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a sweeping order that lifted all state restrictions on businesses, including provisions that let some restaurants have full dining rooms again. The order was a continuation of DeSantis' long-running push to reopen the state's pandemic-battered economy, but the directive also unleashed confusion.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is not having a very good Roman holiday. His 30-plus car motorcade glided over the cobblestone streets of the uncharacteristically dreary, overcast Italian capital Wednesday morning for his second visit in a year. But rather than receiving a hero's welcome, as he did last time—complete with a private audience with Pope Francis and a visit to his ancestral home outside of Rome, he was accused of trying to exploit the pope on President Trump's behalf.

The White House is making no effort to spin or clear up President Donald Trump's comments on the Proud Boys during Tuesday night's debate.

"I don't think that there's anything to clarify," Farah said.
"Black Panther" costume designer Ruth E. Carter told People that she didn't think the suit looked "all that great" until Chadwick Boseman tried it on — and then she thought it was "magic." Carter said she could see the "power of these superheroes" as soon as Boseman donned the suit for the first time: "I could see how they have an effect on people just because it's like they are a superhero." Carter, who won an Oscar for "Black Panther," also worked on 2017's "Marshall" with Boseman, and it was while shooting that film that she found out she had landed the superhero job.
