The now-infamous Camp fire continues to burn throughout northern California, wreaking death and destruction in towns like Paradise, where many structures burned to the ground. The death toll of at least 77 continues rising, with 1,276 people reported missing.

For most Americans, Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate with food, family, and friends. Since 1970, the fourth day of every November has been commemorated with a march and rally by Native Americans in Plymouth, Massachusetts, who do not celebrate the “first” Thanksgiving feast between the Pilgrims and the Indians, but instead remember the Native Americans who have lost their lives and culture since colonisation. What is the National Day of Mourning?
Florida is suing the nation’s two largest drugstore chains, Walgreens and CVS, alleging they added to the state and national opioid crisis by overselling painkillers and not taking precautions to stop illegal sales. Attorney General Pam Bondi announced late Friday that she has added the companies to a state-court lawsuit filed last spring against Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, and several opioid distributors. Bondi said in a press release that CVS and Walgreens “played a role in creating the opioid crisis.” She said the companies failed to stop “suspicious orders of opioids” and “dispensed unreasonable quantities of opioids from their pharmacies.” On average, about 45 people die nationally each day because of opioid overdoses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

You know the floors of the forest, very important,” Trump noted Saturday surrounded by the devastation of the burned town of Paradise in northern California. “I was with the president of Finland and he said, ‘We have a much different —we’re a forest nation.’ He called it a forest nation, and they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett's U-turn surprised many pundits who had predicted the leader of the far-right Jewish Home party would quit in protest after Netanyahu rejected his demand to be named defense minister and assumed the post himself. Netanyahu, head of the right-wing Likud party, has been making last-ditch efforts to prevent the collapse of the government, which has a majority of just one seat in parliament since Avigdor Lieberman resigned as defense chief last week. Outflanking Netanyahu on the right, Lieberman, an ultranationalist, lashed out in his resignation announcement at the government's acceptance of a ceasefire with Gaza's dominant armed group, Hamas, amid a surge in cross-border violence "You win some, you lose some," Bennett said in a televised address, shrugging off Netanyahu's rejection of his bid for the defense post, long regarded in Israel as its second most important cabinet portfolio.
Automaker Nissan on Monday accused its chairman Carlos Ghosn of "significant acts of misconduct" including underreporting his salary and said it would move to fire him, as reports emerged he faced arrest in Tokyo. In a statement, Nissan said it had been conducting a probe into Ghosn for several months after receiving a whistleblower report and had uncovered misconduct going back several years. The statement came after local media reported that Ghosn was being questioned Monday night by prosecutors in Tokyo and was expected to be arrested on violation of financial regulations including misreporting his income.

Saudi King Salman heaped praise on the kingdom's judiciary Monday, in his first public remarks since critic Jamal Khashoggi's murder tipped the country into one of its worst international crises.

Volunteers in white coveralls, hard hats and masks poked through ash and debris Sunday, searching for the remains of victims of the devastating Northern California wildfire before rains forecast this week complicate their efforts. A team of 10 volunteers went from burned house to burned house Sunday in the devastated town of Paradise, accompanied by a cadaver dog with a bell on its collar that jingled in the grim landscape. Robert Panak, a volunteer on a different team from Napa County, spent the morning searching homes, but didn’t find any remains.
Every November, I get asked an unfortunate, loaded question: “You’re a Native American—what do you eat on Thanksgiving?” My answer spans my lifetime. Growing up, I went to a very small country school on the reservation, in the poorest county in the United States.
Of the many highlights found in the new-for-2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, from the bold new styling to its cleverly optimized cargo box to a factory-lifted off-road variant, the addition of an available four-cylinder engine-a first for a modern full-size pickup-is certainly the most controversial. The engine in question is General Motors' new turbocharged DOHC 2.7-liter inline-four, dubbed L3B, which comes as the standard powertrain on mid-level Silverado LT and RST models, as well as on SLE and Elevation versions of the equally new 2019 GMC Sierra 1500. The boosted 2.7 produces a solid 310 horsepower at 5600 rpm, but it's the beefy 348 lb-ft of torque stretching from 1500 to 4000 revs that really matters-that's 43 lb-ft more, at far lower rpm, than is available from the base 285-hp 4.3-liter V-6 found in lesser Silverados, and only 35 lb-ft less than the 355-hp 5.3-liter small-block V-8 (a $1395 option on both the LT and RST.) It mates solely to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and GM says the setup allows 2.7T-equipped Silverados to tow up to 7200 pounds and scoot to 60 mph in less than 7.0 seconds.
President Emmanuel Macron on Monday said France would be extremely vigilant about the fate of Renault and its alliance with Nissan after the arrest of the French auto group's boss Carlos Ghosn in Japan.
