U.S. Rep. Denver Riggleman says President Trump and his lawyers are taking "small, isolated instances of voter fraud or election irregularities" and likening them to systemic issues.'This stuff is insane' »
President Donald Trump has failed to win his re-election bid against Democratic challenger Joe Biden - but it may not be the definitive end of his time in power. On 7 Nov, Mr Biden won the key swing state of Pennsylvania, propelling the Democrat to the White House by granting him the 270 electoral college votes needed. Under the US Constitution, however, even though Trump has lost the election, he could still pursue the Oval Office again in 2024.
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched Hayabusa-2 in 2014 with the goal of collecting the first sample of material from below an asteroid's surface. The spacecraft first landed on Ryugu in February to collect shallow samples from the surface. But scientists knew that probing deeper could reveal more pure rock from the beginnings of our solar system, since that material hasn't been exposed to harsh radiation from the sun.

Also today, Joe Biden has urged President Trump to attend his inauguration next month to “end the chaos” he has created, arguing it was important for there to be a “peaceful" transfer of power.

Scots who are not at a high risk of dying from Covid-19 have been urged to be patient in waiting to be vaccinated, after they were warned they may not be offered inoculations until the second half of 2021. In an attempt to clear up confusion around when all 4.4 million adult Scots will receive a vaccination, John Swinney, the Deputy First Minister, confirmed on Friday that a spring target date applied only to priority groups, such as the elderly and frontline healthcare workers. Jeane Freeman, the health secretary, had told parliament last month that the entire vaccination programme could be finished by the spring while Nicola Sturgeon said on Thursday that she “very much hoped” all eligible people would have received it within the timeframe.

Mr Emhoff heaped public praise on his wife as the Biden/Harris campaign celebrated election victory on 7 November, after an agonising days-long wait for key swing states to be declared.

Having signed up Floridians navigating the confusing terrain of the federal health insurance marketplace for the last several years, Jodi Ray of the University of South Florida is used to being busy this time of year. Since 2018, Ray and her team of navigators have operated with about one fifth of the funding they had when Obamacare was first rolled out almost a decade ago, using it to steer people to the right insurance plans during open enrollment, which started on November 1 and runs until December 15. “Unless you're an A-List person, it's very difficult to survive in those states on unemployment,” said Ray, who has helped her fair share of out-of-work performers in a year she said is the busiest she can recall.
Sidney Powell, the attorney who was distanced from the US president's legal team because she pushed election-related conspiracies, was said to have submitted a lawsuit that “breathed more lies” than most cases seen in court, after she challenged Michigan's election results. Issuing a response to Ms Powell's lawsuit on Thursday, judges for the City of Detroit said the lawsuit contained “warped logic”, and dismissed claims that vote machines had been tampered with, among other conspiracy theories. “Few lawsuits breathe more lies than this one,” said the 45-page court document, which was shared online.
Though mullets have a deep history that goes back to prehistoric people, Ancient Rome, and indigenous people, according to Dazed, the hairstyle became most popular amongst celebrities in the '70s and '80s. Surprisingly, one of the most popular images of a celebrity's hair from that time is Fonda's mugshot from 1970, when she was arrested for carrying vitamins that airport security thought were drugs, as she wrote in an essay on her website. Vogue previously said Fonda's mugshot "started a beauty revolution," as her dark hair was "part-mullet, part-shag."
A California psychologist convicted of tax evasion was at the center of a mysterious, recently disclosed Justice Department investigation into whether White House officials were illegally lobbied to obtain a presidential pardon.

But lawyers for both men say neither is under investigation.
The last jobs report to be released this year has arrived, and it's a major disappointment. The Labor Department on Friday said the U.S. economy added 245,000 jobs in November, which was down from the 440,000 jobs economists were expecting, CNBC reports. It was also "by far the lowest monthly total since the economy started its halting recovery," NBC News reports.
China is conducting "human testing" to create "biologically enhanced soldiers," the head of US intelligence has claimed as he warned that Beijing poses the biggest threat to America's national security. In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, warned that the US must be prepared for an "open-ended" confrontation with China which he likened to the Cold War. Mr Ratcliffe, who oversees America's intelligence agencies, said he believed China's intention was to "dominate" the planet in every sense: economically, militarily and technologically.
Tyler Reddick will win a race Reddick did not win Rookie of the Year honors nor did he win a race in 2020, but he led laps — 30 to be exact. While that's not a massive number, it was the most laps led of any Cup rookie during a year with hardly any practice. That seems promising for next season when there will be more practice and qualifying opportunities.
The president on Friday blamed the “Democrat stronghold” US Postal Service for his election loss, even though he appointed a GOP mega-donor to lead it and spent months undermining the agency ahead of the election. Whistleblowers reveal that the USPS is responsible for tampering with hundreds of thousands of ballots,” Mr Trump tweeted on Friday morning, referencing a report to that effect from the far-right One America News Network. This long time Democrat stronghold got rid of massive numbers, especially in swing states, during and before delivery of the ballots.
A week after being fined by regulators for delaying safety recalls, Hyundai is recalling about 130,000 vehicles in the U.S. because the engines could fail. The recall will address a manufacturing issue that could cause the connecting rod bearings to wear out and the engines to fail, Hyundai said. Documents posted Friday on NHTSA's website say that owners could hear abnormal knocking sounds from the engine and see warning lights before any failure or fire.
Former Hong Kong politician Ted Hui has announced he has chosen to go into exile as Beijing intensifies its crackdown on high-profile figures of the former British colony's pro-democracy movement. Mr Hui, 38, initially fled to Denmark this week where he was joined by his family, but he said he would make his way to the UK to continue his pro-democratic activities. He joins Nathan Law, a prominent Hong Kong human rights activist now based in London, and a growing diaspora of dissidents who are continuing to advocate for more international pressure on China to allow greater rights and freedoms in the Asian financial hub.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said Friday that The Cheesecake Factory settled charges that it misled investors on the impact the pandemic was having on its business. The Cheesecake Factory said in March and April government filings that it was “operating sustainably” during the pandemic. But the SEC said Friday that the filings were “false and misleading” because internal documents at time showed the restaurant chain was losing $6 million in cash per week and had projected that it had 16 weeks of cash left.
“This metastasizing debt crisis has had tremendous social costs. An entire generation has been set back.”
“It is not the government’s job to step in and rescue those who took on more debt than their future incomes would support.”
“Many student-borrowers need relief, but well-off borrowers who are thriving — thanks to their college degrees — do not.”
“It will stimulate the lagging economy. And though not everyone will directly benefit, the country as a whole will improve.”
“Canceling student debt would cost billions of dollars each year and would exacerbate, not lessen, economic inequalities.”
