Joe Biden bested Donald Trump on Thursday night in a category sure to grab the president's attention: television ratings. Figures released Friday from Nielsen show that Biden's town hall on ABC averaged 13.9 million viewers, while Trump's averaged 10.6 million on NBC. But even when viewership figures are added for MSNBC and CNBC, cable networks owned by NBC that also carried Trump's town hall, the president's total viewership was 13 million, lower than Biden's.
Deja Stallings gave birth to her first child, a girl named Dsyre, on the morning of Oct. 16. Two weeks before Stallings's daughter was born, her mother told Yahoo News, she had been the victim of police brutality. Stallings, a Black woman nine months pregnant, was thrown to the ground on Sept. 30 during an altercation with police in Kansas City, Mo. That incident, according to Stallings's lawyer Stacy Shaw, is the reason that Dsyre ended up in intensive care.
In a state where the price of a bushel of soybeans is exceeded in political importance only by the price of a bushel of corn, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst committed an embarrassing faux pas in a debate Thursday with her Democratic challenger, Theresa Greenfield. Ernst, a first-term senator who rode in on the GOP wave of 2014, is in a tight reelection contest with Greenfield, a real estate executive. In their third and final debate, held remotely because Ernst was in Washington for the confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett, Ernst flubbed her answer to what should have been a softball question on the break-even price for soybeans — the minimum that farmers must receive to avoid losing money on their crop.
White South African farmers and rival Black protesters hurled abuse and threats at each other on Friday ahead of a court hearing in a murder case that has exposed still simmering racial tensions 26 years after the end of apartheid. The killing of Brendan Horner, a white man whose body was found tied to a pole at his farm in Free State province, sparked riots at the start of this month, and prompted President Cyril Ramaphosa to make a statement urging South Africans to "resist attempts... to mobilise communities along racial lines". The farmers, who accuse the government of failing to protect them from violent crime, arrived in pick-up trucks ahead of the court hearing in the central town of Senekal for Horner's two suspected killers.
Yet now, in the homestretch of the 2020 campaign, Trump not only appears to be performing even worse than before among college-educated white women, he's also doing worse among white voters in general. By partnering with YouGov to track the views of 13 key demographic groups (including suburban voters, Latino voters and white seniors) across nine important metrics (such as vote intention, Trump approval and the direction of the country), Yahoo News has identified several weak spots for the president among the white voters on whom he has pinned his hopes of reelection. Consider the following chart, which compares the results of the Sept.
An unknown number of similar killings take place each year — deckhands on the ship from which the video was shot told a private investigator, and later a documentary crew on camera, that they'd witnessed a similar slaughter a week before. Wang Feng Yu, believed to have been the captain of the Taiwanese-flagged Ping Shin 101 during the attack, was taken into custody by the Taiwanese coast guard in August after his current ship docked at Kaohsiung port. He's being held while prosecutors investigate.
FBI agents are investigating whether emails allegedly found on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop discussing presidential candidate Joe Biden son's supposed business activities in Ukraine are linked to a foreign intelligence operation, according to a report. Two sources familiar with the matter told NBC on Thursday night bureau chiefs are looking into the possibility that the email cache - allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden - may have been unearthed with help from a power hostile to the US, such as Russia. FBI agents recovered the laptop and hard drive through a grand jury subpoena that was later published by the New York Post, the Trump-friendly newspaper that first printed a story based on the alleged emails.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein hugged Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham at the close of Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearings on Thursday. Feinstein also thanked Graham for leading the hearings.

The current elected president, Muhammadu Buhari, even headed the African Union's corruption awareness campaign in 2018. Despite these efforts, the country is still ranked low on a global corruption index.

Nearly 21 million Americans have already cast ballots in the 2020 election, a record-shattering avalanche of early votes driven both by Democratic enthusiasm and a pandemic that has transformed the way the nation votes. The 20.8 million ballots submitted as of Friday afternoon represents 15% of all the votes cast in the 2016 presidential election, even as eight states are not yet reporting their totals and voters still have more than two weeks to cast ballots. Americans' rush to vote is leading election experts to predict that a record 150 million votes may be cast and turnout rates could be higher than in any presidential election since 1908.
South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg told a 911 dispatcher "it could be" that he hit a deer when he had actually struck a man with his car, newly released call recordings show. The audio was released Tuesday, as South Dakota Governor Kristin Noem and Public Safety Secretary Craig Price gave an update on the investigation into Ravnsborg's fatal car crash in September, giving the public access to the audio and transcript of his 911 call, as well as toxicology reports. In September, local authorities reported that although Ravnsborg initially told authorities he thought he hit a deer with his car, he was actually involved in a car crash that killed 55-year-old pedestrian Joseph Boever.
In less than two months, Scott Peterson has gone from facing the death penalty for the 2004 conviction of killing his wife and unborn son to facing the possibility of a new trial.

Billy Graham's granddaughter — said Thursday in a Zoom call sponsored by one of a growing number of evangelical groups that have formed to encourage Christians to vote for Joe Biden. Trump's “attempts to hijack our faith for votes, and evangelical leaders' silence on his actions and behavior, has presented a picture of what our faith looks like that is so erroneous that it has done significant damage to the way people view Jesus,” said Duford on the call, which was sponsored by Not Our Faith PAC, a bipartisan group formed just this week with the explicit goal of trying to defeat Trump.
Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was grilled by police on Thursday over his bid to oust the government, in what he called “political harassment" to thwart his attempt. Anwar met the nation's king on Tuesday to show evidence that he has majority support in Parliament to form a new government and unseat Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, who has only a thin two-seat majority in the house. Police summoned Anwar to give a statement Thursday after 113 complaints were lodged over a purported list of 121 lawmakers allegedly backing Anwar that has spread on social media.

Many Dalit activists see the Hathras case as a particularly brutal example of how Dalit women are not only regular victims of sexual violence in India, and an example of how the state is often complicit, making it difficult for victims to get justice. The victim first told police she was raped on Sept. shortly after the attack, according to videos taken shortly after at the scene of the crime, seen by the BBC.
The Broward County Sheriff's office fired two top administrators after a woman who went into labor in her jail cell was not given medical care despite screams of pain. The woman, who suffers from mental illness, was ultimately forced to give birth to her son in the jail cell, according to a letter sent to Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony Wednesday by the Broward Public Defender's Office. “She was denied the dignity of a hospital bed and the assistance of a physician,” according to the letter, signed by Executive Chief Assistant Public Defender Gordon H. Weekes Jr. “The repeated and callous indifference to the medical needs of a laboring, mentally ill mother is of grave concern.”
Sen. Ben Sasse slammed President Donald Trump during a call with constituents this week, saying he "kisses dictators' butts" and has "flirted with white supremacists." The Nebraska Republican was answering a constituent's question regarding his relationship with Trump, and the senator's past criticism of the president. The ways I criticized President (Barack) Obama for that kind of spending, I've criticized President Trump for as well.
Prehistoric footprints of a woman carrying a toddler while dodging sabre-toothed cats and giant sloths are the longest set of fossilised human prints ever found, scientists have said. The prints, which stretch for almost a mile and were discovered in the White Sands National Park in New Mexico, USA, date back 13,000 years. Prior to their discovery, the longest track, located in Northern Tanzania, was only around 200 metres long, said Professor Matthew Bennett, of the University of Bournemouth.
