One month after their counteroffensive began, Ukrainian forces have gained significant ground following months of Russia's advances in the south and east of the country. According to the Institute for the Study of War, Ukraine's counteroffensive made substantial headway from Sept. 4 to Oct. 3 in regaining territory from the northern city of Kharkiv to the border with Luhansk as well as several pockets in northern Kherson. In his nightly address on Monday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said more than 450 settlements had been liberated thanks to the “defense operation that began in September and is still ongoing.”

Russian troops abandoned a key Ukrainian city so rapidly that they left the bodies of their comrades in the streets, offering more evidence Tuesday of Moscow's latest military defeat as it struggles to hang on to four regions of Ukraine that it illegally annexed last week. Meanwhile, Russia's upper house of parliament rubber-stamped the annexations following “referendums” that Ukraine and its Western allies have dismissed as fraudulent. Responding to the move, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy formally ruled out talks with Russia, declaring that negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin are impossible after his decision to take over the regions.
The man police say drove an SUV into a Christmas parade crowd last year killing six people is representing himself in court, a move that experts say could slow down nearly every step of the process and create chaos in the courtroom for victims who are still grieving. Darrell Brooks Jr., 40, is accused of 76 criminal counts, including six charges of first-degree intentional homicide, tied to the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy in November 2021. Jury selection began Monday after near-constant interruptions from Brooks, who has no legal training.

As previously reported by Blavity, Tasha K lost her lawsuit against the rap superstar back in January and was ordered to pay $4 million to Cardi for making false claims.

LONDON (Reuters) -The withdrawal of Russian forces from a strategically important town in eastern Ukraine has prompted two powerful allies of President Vladimir Putin to do something rare in modern Russia: publicly ridicule the war machine's top brass. Russia's loss of the bastion of Lyman, which puts western parts of Luhansk region under threat, touched a nerve for Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of the southern Russian republic of Chechnya. Kadyrov, who has been close to Putin since his father and former president of Chechnya, Akhmad, was killed in a 2004 bomb attack in Grozny that also killed a Reuters photographer, suggested that Russia should consider using a small tactical nuclear weapon in Ukraine in response to the loss.
Trump did a Pizza Hut commercial in 1995 with Ivana, his ex-wife, to promote stuffed-crust pies. Maples puked her "guts out," Trump said she told him, according to a new book. Had it not been for Donald and Ivana Trump, his ex-wife, Pizza Hut's stuffed-crust dish may have landed in the fast-food graveyard alongside the chain's hot-dog-bites crust.
Officials in Lee County, Florida, are warning that not all post-Hurricane Ian looters may get off as lucky as the jailed accused scavengers arrested earlier this week — some of whom are in the U.S. illegally. Omar Mejia Ortiz, 33, and Valerie Celeste Salcedo Mena, 26, were arrested, along with 20-year-olds Brandon Mauricio Araya and Steve Eduardo Sanchez Araya. Lee County sheriff's deputies arrested all four on charges of burglary of an unoccupied structure during a state of emergency, according to online jail records.
Russia's first mobilisation since World War Two, declared by President Vladimir Putin on Sept. 21, has led to widespread discontent among officials and citizens over the way the draft has been handled, including complaints about enlistment officers sending call-up papers to clearly ineligible men. "In 10 days, several thousand of our countrymen received summons and arrived at the military registration and enlistment offices," Mikhail Degtyarev, the governor of the Khabarovsk region in Russia's Far East, said in a video post on the Telegram messaging app. Degtyarev said the removal of the commissar, Yuri Laiko, would not affect the mobilisation plan set by Putin.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Daily life in Haiti began to spin out of control last month just hours after Prime Minister Ariel Henry said fuel subsidies would be eliminated, causing prices to double. Gunshots rang out as protesters blocked roads with iron gates and mango trees. Then Haiti's most powerful gang took a drastic step: It dug trenches to block access to the Caribbean country's largest fuel terminal, vowing not to budge until Henry resigns and prices for fuel and basic goods go down.
What's more, your student loans, car loans and mortgage are all likely less than 9%, so it's not likely that consolidation via a HELOC would save you money. You may want to start somewhere different, like the snowball method, where you focus on one loan, usually the smallest one, and direct all of your resources to pay off that loan while maintaining payments on the others,” says Chen. This method could work to finish off your student loans and maybe one of your car loans, to start with.

Russia's retreat from a key Ukrainian city over the weekend elicited outcry from an unlikely crowd – state-run media outlets that typically cast Moscow's war in glowing terms. A series of embarrassing military losses in recent weeks has presented a challenge for prominent hosts of Russian news and political talk shows struggling to find ways to paint Ukraine's gains in a way that is still favorable to the Kremlin. Frustration with the battlefield setbacks has long been expressed in social media blogs run by nationalist pundits and pro-Kremlin analysts, and the volume grew after Ukraine's counteroffensive last month around Kharkiv in the northeast.
Milligan, the Supreme Court will be deciding an extremely important case regarding gerrymandering. After the 2020 Census, Alabama redid their congressional redistricting map for 2021 that was drawn by the state's GOP-legislature.

The New York Police Department is asking the public for help in finding a man sexually assaulted a woman in her Chinatown apartment building. The attacker followed the 27-year-old woman into her building near Market Street and Madison Street on Sept. 24, police said.

Goble describes the Kremlin's approach to the mobilization as having been conducted by Russian President Vladimir Putin under a cynical premise: “How do I carry this out so that few people in Moscow and St. Petersburg get rounded up? Yet the extent of the recent protests appears to suggest that the Kremlin misjudged how its mobilization order would be received in the areas it targeted. "This partial mobilization is not well planned and is likely to backfire," Goble told Yahoo News.
A groom was worried about his bride seeing him arrive at their wedding in a sheriff's patrol vehicle. “When a groom is on his way to his wedding and is involved in a traffic accident, who gets him to the wedding on time(?)

When she asked why he couldn't stay for the rest of the day, Manwell said the school told her they would call child protective services if she didn't take him home. The call was just one of a dozen that Manwell received last fall telling her John couldn't stay in school because of behaviors she says stemmed from his disability, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Many schools have promised to cut down on suspensions, since kids can't learn as well when they aren't in class.

The asteroid that got smacked by a NASA spacecraft is now being trailed by thousands of miles of debris from the impact. This plume is accelerating away from the harmless asteroid, in large part, because of pressure on it from solar radiation, said Matthew Knight of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, who made the observation along with Lowell Observatory's Teddy Kareta using the Southern Astrophysical Research Telescope.
“They give voters the chance to hear candidate views. In their own words. In real time.”
“There is campaigning, and there is governing. Two different things. … In the end, it is governing that really matters.”
“We are in a crisis of democracy, and we need to be able to figure out how to disagree.”
“In very close races, small mistakes can prove decisive, or at least knock a campaign in the wrong direction for a few days.”
“The debates themselves are shaping up to be major campaign issues. It’s tedious, and it does not serve the voters.”
