Seven days after the November presidential election, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case that could decide the fate of the Affordable Care Act, the 2010 law that has provided health coverage to millions of previously uninsured Americans. Democrats are using that looming reality to frame the opposition against Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump's nominee to the high court. Democrats see the prospect of some 23 million Americans losing their health coverage as their most potent argument against Barrett's nomination.
A grand jury investigation concluded Taylor's boyfriend fired at officers when they entered, and they returned fire, Cameron announced Wednesday. But Cameron's assertion that the investigation ruled out "friendly fire" as the source of the 9mm shot that hit Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly's thigh isn't backed up by a Kentucky State Police ballistics report from the scene, Vice News first reported. "Due to limited markings of comparative value" on the bullet that went through Mattingly's leg, it was neither "identified nor eliminated as having been fired" from Walker's gun, the report concluded.
SAN FRANCISCO – Thousands of fire-sapped California residents fled two new blazes Monday that exploded in size overnight, torching more than 25,000 acres. The breakneck Zogg Fire had burned through 15,000 acres near Redding in Northern California, and the Glass Fire tore through 11,000 acres in the Napa and Sonoma wine country north of San Francisco, according to Cal Fire. Both fires were at 0% containment as of 9:30 a.m.
Chancellor Angela Merkel told leaders of her Christian Democrats (CDU) on Monday that coronavirus infection rate could hit 19,200 per day in Germany if the current trend continues but stressed that the economy must be kept running, a party source said. Infections have been rising in Germany for weeks. Data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases showed the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Germany rose by 1,192 on Monday.
Within hours of the New York Times story showing that President Trump paid only $750 in federal income taxes in his first year in the White House, Joe Biden's campaign released an ad comparing that amount to what middle-class wage earners typically pay. The ad, with no narration, contrasts what Trump — who has claimed to be worth as much as $10 billion — paid to the federal government to the taxes paid by a typical elementary school teacher ($7,239), firefighter ($5,283), construction manager ($16,447) or registered nurse ($10,216). On Sunday, the Times published a story analyzing Trump's tax returns that found he had paid $750 in federal taxes in both 2016 and 2017 and zero dollars in many previous years.
For three weeks in August, as election officials across the country were preparing to send out mail-in ballots to tens of millions of voters, the U.S. Postal Service stopped fully updating a national change of address system that most states use to keep their voter rolls current, according to multiple officials who use the system. A USPS spokesperson acknowledged the failure in response to questions from TIME, and said that at least 1.8 million new changes of address had not been registered in the database. In normal times, hundreds of thousands of people move every week, and those numbers have increased during the COVID pandemic, which has forced millions of people, particularly young adults, to relocate at higher rates than usual, according to public polling and news reports.
A hacker published grades and personal information of thousands of Las Vegas students after school district officials refused to pay a ransom in exchange for the information. The leaked information included students' names, social security numbers, addresses, and some financial information, and were published on an online hacker forum this week, a cybersecurity analyst told Business Insider. Las Vegas' Clark County School District announced earlier this month that some of its files were compromised by a hacker using ransomware and that law enforcement was investigating.

India reported on Monday that novel coronavirus infections had topped 6 million, nowhere near the number required for herd immunity in country of 1.3 billion people, and raising anxiety going into the peak period for Hindu religious festivals. India added a million cases in just 11 days, according to a Reuters tally of government data, and it has the second-highest number of infections, behind the United States which crossed 7 million last week. India's festival season, which climaxes in October and November with the popular Hindu celebrations of Dussehra and Diwali, poses additional challenges, as officials try to dampen the usual large public celebrations and cross-country travel.
When Donald Trump first exploded on the political scene, he was an unpredictable rule breaker and neither the news media nor anyone else knew how to handle him. First, the Lincoln Project has proved that while President Trump appears formidable, he's really just a creature of instinct who's actually both predictable and unable to defend his weak spots once you find them. Second, as we've seen in numerous interviews and a recent disastrous town hall, Trump has a very shallow comfort zone and is quickly out of his depth once he loses control of an interaction.
France's main conservative party looked set to keep control of the Senate and the Greens made new gains in partial elections Sunday that posed a new challenge to President Emmanuel Macron's struggling centrist movement. Nearly half of the chamber's 348 seats were up for grabs in the vote, an indirect election in which some 90,000 local elected officials like city councilors choose the senators. As results gradually came in Sunday night, Senate President Gerard Larcher of the Republicans party tweeted that the center-right majority was intact, and that he would run for another term as Senate leader “to restore the confidence that our country so lacks.”
Scientists have detected a series of saltwater lakes beneath the glaciers of Mars' southern ice cap. The researchers think the liquid in these lakes doesn't freeze and become solid, despite the low temperatures of Mars' glaciers, due to its extremely high concentrations of salt. The Mars Express spacecraft, which has been surveying the red planet since 2005, had previously detected signs of a subglacial lake basin on Mars' south pole, but it was unclear whether the lake was liquid or what it contained.
The ancestral homes of two Bollywood greats are to be saved from crumbling into ruin in northern Pakistan. The houses belonged to the families of Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar who migrated to India in the years before Pakistan was created from British India in 1947. Officials in Peshawar say the dilapidated homes are to be bought, restored and turned into museums.
Texas has stepped up efforts to counter the threat posed by a brain-eating amoeba detected in the water supply of a coastal county that led to the death of a 6-year-old boy earlier this month. Governor Greg Abbott on Sunday issued a disaster declaration for Brazoria County after Naegleria fowleri, a microscopic amoeba, was found in the water supply of the city of Lake Jackson in the greater Houston metropolitan area. "You don't hear about this stuff until it happens to you.
After weeks and months of President Donald Trump characterizing former Vice President Joe Biden as an senile old man who can't string two sentences together, his campaign has finally realized that they should start raising expectations for his performance at the first debate this Tuesday night. Apparently, Donald Trump Jr. didn't get the memo. The president's eldest son kicked off his Fox & Friends appearance by attacking CNN's Jake Tapper for not pressing Jill Biden harder on her husband's history of making “gaffes” during an interview on State of the Union Sunday.
United Airlines and its pilots have reached an agreement that both sides say will avoid about 2,850 furloughs that were set to take effect later this week and another 1,000 early next year. The Air Line Pilots Association said Monday that the deal will allow United to spread a reduced amount of flying across the airline's 13,000 pilots to save jobs at least until next June. "Our members understood that in order to protect pilot jobs, we needed to approve this agreement,” said Todd Insler, chairman of the union's United Airlines council.
CEO Elon Musk said Tesla expected to produce 20 million electric vehicles per year before 2030. This is more than 50 times what Tesla produced in 2019. Musk also said he expected the electric vehicle market to produce more than 30 million vehicles annually by 2027.
Armenia has declared martial law and a total military mobilization following clashes with neighboring Azerbaijan over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Armenian foreign ministry spokeswoman, Anna Naghdalyan, saying:] "Early in the morning, around 7 a.m.
A fourth judge on Monday issued a preliminary injunction barring the U.S. Postal Service from making service reductions ahead of the November presidential election that critics have said could prevent timely ballot deliveries. U.S. District Judge Gerald McHugh in Pennsylvania joined three other judges who have issued similar orders since Sept. 17 after the Postal Service in July restricted late trips by trucks and letter carriers and instituted overtime restrictions. Judge Emmet Sullivan in the District of Columbia late Sunday issued a similar order, while judges in Washington State and New York issued injunctions since Sept. 17.
