In an angry and emotional speech at the United Nations climate summit on Monday, Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg tore into world leaders for failing to act. "This is all wrong," Thunberg said, reading from a piece of paper. "How dare you continue to look away and come here saying you are doing enough," Thunberg added.
Officer Dennis Turner is facing an internal investigation because he failed to follow department policy that requires officers to obtain approval from a watch commander before arresting minors younger than 12, Chief Orlando Rolon said in a statement. Turner's duties have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. "The Orlando Police Department has a policy that addresses the arrest of a minor and our initial finding shows the policy was not followed," Rolon said. Police did not name the children because of child privacy laws, but Meralyn Kirkland told WKMG-TV that her granddaughter was one of the students arrested.
A tour bus carrying 30 Chinese tourists left Las Vegas in the morning and set off through the other worldly red-rock landscape of southern Utah toward Bryce National Park. As is common in tour buses, not everyone was wearing a seatbelt when the bus from a tour company based in Southern California rolled, crushing its roof and ramming the guard rail's vertical posts into the cab, Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Nick Street said. Robert Driedonks, who heard the crash from the wildlife museum he owns nearby, said it sounded like "a bomb going off." He ran to the scene Friday, rushing to check pulses and help the terrified people as best he could, though they were far from home and couldn't understand his words.
The question is whether it is better for presidential hopefuls to focus on winning over swing states (as they do under the Electoral College) or big cities (as they would if a nationwide popular election was instituted). Given these two realistic alternatives, the Electoral College system is far healthier for the country as a whole. Warren is right that presidential candidates would likely travel to places like Massachusetts and California if the Electoral College were replaced by a nationwide popular vote.

Just as the aftershocks of the special counsel's Russia investigation seemed to have settled, the latest tremblor out of the Oval Office is whether the president used the levers of his foreign policy toward Ukraine for political gain. Short of someone violating the law by leaking that whistleblower complaint, or the whistleblower risking retaliation by bravely going to Congress, there's no quick or certain process for the public to learn its contents. There is, however, a steady drip of news media reports, and a few admissions by Trump himself on Sunday.
WASHINGTON – The New York Post published an "obituary" for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's now-concluded presidential campaign. De Blasio, who is currently serving his second term as mayor, was blasted by the newspaper, which wrote that his campaign had "died" from "ego-induced psychosis." Neighbors said the body had been in rigor mortis for some time,” the mock obituary says.
At issue for the Supreme Court is whether Malvo should be resentenced in Virginia in light of Supreme Court rulings restricting life-without-parole sentences for crimes committed by juveniles. But the case could also be an opportunity for the Supreme Court, which has recently become more conservative , to put the brakes on what has been a gradual move toward more leniency for juvenile offenders . Regardless of the case's outcome, Malvo isn't leaving prison anytime soon.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday new U.S. sanctions blacklisting Iran's central bank for a second time pointed to U.S. "desperation" in the face of Iranian resistance. President Donald Trump last year quit a 2015 nuclear pact between Iran and six world powers, reimposing and then tightening sanctions that had been lifted under the deal in return for Iran curbing its nuclear program. The United States on Friday imposed further sanctions, including on Iran's central bank which was already blacklisted, following Sept.
A Rohingya man was killed by a suspected landmine blast along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border, officials said Monday, the second such incident this month. Nearly one million Rohingya live in camps in southeast Bangladesh after fleeing a military crackdown in Myanmar's Rakhine state, with some believed to use the porous border to travel back home. Dhaka has previously accused Myanmar security forces of planting mines along the frontier to prevent the refugees from returning -- a charge Myanmar rejects.

As a result there is increased focus within the military community on combat technologies that can provide what the military calls precision, navigation and timing (PNT) for a wide range of systems. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is working with industry to test and refine an emerging radio frequency force-tracking technology able to identify ground forces' location without needing to rely upon GPS. The technology utilizes a ground operated handheld device which uses an algorithm to aggregate signals of opportunity from various radio frequencies, said Mark Smearcheck, AFRL electronics engineer, in a written statement several months ago.
President Donald Trump on Sunday said he would consider releasing a transcript of a phone call he had with Ukraine's leader, even though two of his Cabinet secretaries said only hours earlier that such conversations must remain “private. We'll make a determination about how to release it, releasing it, saying what we said,” the president told reporters in Houston. It was an absolutely perfect conversation.
Michelle Carter, the Massachusetts woman serving 15 months in prison for encouraging her boyfriend through text messages to kill himself, was denied early release by the state's parole board Friday. Two members of the Massachusetts Parole Board wrote the decision for the seven-member panel, saying "the (board) is troubled that Ms. Carter not only encouraged Mr. Conrad to take his own life, she actively prevented others from intervening in his suicide." Carter, 22, appeared before the board Thursday to ask for early release in the high-profile case that stems from the 2014 suicide death of Conrad Roy III, then 18 years old.

Saudi Aramco's repairs on its oil facilities that suffered devastating attacks last week are in emergency mode, but could still take several months before they're fully operational again, according to the Wall Street Journal. After the September 14 attack knocked out half of the country's oil production, Saudi officials and oil contractors told the Journal that the estimate of 10 weeks that company executives have promised for a repairs timeline would be a fraction of the time it is now expected to take. One Saudi official said costs could run in the hundreds of millions of dollars as the country and oil company are still reeling from the attacks.
Stacks of cash piled high were shown as evidence on Saturday against ousted Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir at his trial on charges of possessing illicit foreign currency and corruption. Millions of euros and Sudanese pounds were found at Bashir's residence in April after he was overthrown and detained by the military following months of demonstrations against his rule. The court heard four defense witnesses on Saturday, including Abubakr Awad, who was minister of state for the presidency until Bashir's fall, before it was adjourned until next Saturday.
Israel's national electricity company said Sunday it was cutting power to parts of the occupied West Bank due to outstanding payments amounting to nearly $483 million. The Israel Electric Corporation said it was owed 1.7 billion shekels in debts from the main Palestinian power distributor for the West Bank, which is based in east Jerusalem. From Monday, the company "will reduce the current in some areas of the West Bank" because of the debts, it said in a statement.
