"With this run, the organizers hope that people will come together to remember that life is short and tomorrow is not a guarantee," event planner Jonathan Lance said in a statement. Proceeds from the run will be donated to two organizations, Students Rising Above and the Challenged Athletes Foundation. The run will start and finish under the Main Street Arch, Lance said.

    AFP on Yahoo ^ | 10/24/16 | Marie-Noëlle BLESSIG
    Geneva (AFP) - The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has passed an ominous milestone, ushering the planet into "a new era" of climate change, the UN said Monday. For the first time on record, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere averaged 400 parts per million (ppm) in 2015, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said in its latest Greenhouse Gas Bulletin. CO2, the main greenhouse gas driving climate change, has previously passed the 400 ppm threshold on certain months in specific locations but never on a globally averaged basis, WMO said. The UN agency also reported that...

    The ex-wife of disgraced Subway pitchman Jared Fogle filed a lawsuit Monday against the sandwich company, claiming it knew for years about Fogle’s desire for underage girls. Katie McLaughlin’s civil action, filed in Hamilton County, Indiana, said Subway received reports on three separate occasions — the first as early as 2004 — about Fogle’s sexual desire for young girls but did nothing to stop it. McLaughlin, who married Fogle in 2010, said the pitchman — who claimed to have lost hundreds of pounds by eating Subway sandwiches and walking — propositioned an underage girl for sex in 2004 at a...

    Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday. That will stoke another “Obamacare” controversy days before a presidential election. Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.

    One of the emails contained in the Wikileaks’ Podesta email release shows that Hillary Clinton had gun control supporters planted in a town hall audience in Manchester, New Hampshire. The town hall occurred on October 5, 2015; just four days after a man opened fire on Umpqua Community College campus in Oregon. In the email thread, dated October 4, 2015, a “speech draft” was passed around “on behalf of Megan Rooney.” The email contained “talking points” for Clinton to use to discuss guns in Manchester.

    By year's end, Portland General Electric will fire up its 550-megawatt power plant in Boardman for a daylong test burn, feeding 8,000 tons of pulverized, roasted wood into its boilers instead of the usual diet of coal. The exercise is meant to gauge whether the aging fossil fuel plant could reliably generate electricity using renewable feedstock such as "torrefied" wood after its scheduled closure in 2020. If it works — technically, economically and environmentally — Oregon's only coal-fired power plant could one day become the country's largest biomass power plant. It's an uncertain, embryonic effort, but some believe the payoff...

He's been a free man for six years now with an important exception: he still can't vote. Newton, who is African American, is among nearly 1.5 million former felons who have been stripped of their right to vote in a state with a history of deciding U.S. presidential elections, sometimes by razor-thin margins of just a few hundred votes. Felons have been disenfranchised in Florida since 1868, although they can seek clemency to...

    Unlike the United States Navy, which went all-in on nuclear power, Russia maintains fleets of both diesel and nuclear-powered submarines. A land power encompassing much of Eurasia, Russian submarines are based much closer to "the action" than American submarines are. While Russia maintains nuclear submarines for distant ocean patrols, its fleet of diesel submarines is more than adequate for conflicts in Europe, the Middle East and the Russian near abroad. The mainstay of the Russian Navy's conventionally powered fleet are Project 877-class submarines, known as the Kilo class to NATO and the West. Nicknamed the "Black Hole" submarine by the...

    Hundreds of women, girls and other supporters proudly donned their yoga pants Sunday afternoon as they peacefully paraded around the Rhode Island neighborhood of a man who derided the attire as tacky and ridiculous. Alan Sorrentino says the response to the letter to the editor, printed in The Barrington Times Wednesday, has been “vicious” and that he’s received death threats. He implored marchers to stay away from his home and maintained the letter was meant to be humorous. But organizers say the so-called yoga pants parade wasn’t a protest against Sorrentino specifically but part of a bigger movement against misogyny...

Now his widow has spoken out about the treatment he suffered before and after his death at the age of 67, accusing his employers of heartlessness.

Moreover, her critics accuse Hillary and Bill Clinton of raking in a huge fortune (over $130 million) from the American, Canadian, and Russian investors who helped arrange for these Russian companies — under the control, ultimately, of Vladimir Putin — to...

The incident took place on a Bogota-bound flight that departed from Madrid. The Boeing 787 was flying at a high altitude near Venezuela's western border with Colombia when at 7:10 p.m. local time (00:10 GMT) on Friday another aircraft was...

    President Barack Obama is again complaining about conservative media, accusing it of creating candidate Donald Trump. “Trump didn’t come out of nowhere now,” Obama said during a campaign speech in Miami. “For years, Republican politicians and far-right media outlets had just been pumping out all kinds of toxic, crazy stuff.” Obama employed a straw man attack against conservative media, accusing them of starting “the whole birther thing” and calling climate change a “Chinese hoax.” “According to them, I’m powerful enough to cause these hurricanes, and I’m about to steal everybody’s guns in the middle of the night and declare martial...

    NORTH LITTLE ROCK,Ark.--The mother of an 18-year-old murder victim says she forgives the man accused of killing her daughter.

The mother of the victim says this is not the first time she has dealt with the murder of a loved one. She says she is relying on family and her faith after seeing her brother, her husband and now her daughter murdered in the last few years. Family pictures lined the table inside the home of an 18-year-old whose life was...

    The Iraqi and Kurdish armies continue to progress towards Mosul in northern Iraq, and are now a mere 15 kilometers from the city itself. Terrorist group ISIS slaughtered 284 men and boys, then piled their bodies in a mass grave. CNN reported ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi slaughtered 59 senior ISIS captains after they attempted to negotiate withdrawal from Mosul in return for safely escaping the city. About a thousand people were suffered injuries from breathing gases in the Mosul area, after a sulfur factory in the south of the city was set on fire. The fire is assumed to...

    Something funny is happening in the major national polling department of this presidential race and no one’s talking about it. First, somehow the narrative seems to be developing that the polls show Clinton with a near insurmountable lead. Not so fast. Not so fast at all. There is a very large gap between Trump and Clinton’s current national standing, as revealed by Goebbels/Pravda (CBS, NBC, ABC/Washington Post), on the one hand, versus the picture painted by three respected polling organizations that are not part of the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, on the other: Here are some of the...

    Several students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) are collaborating to sell a line of hoodies carrying provocative messages like, “All White People Are Racist,” and another variation that seems to promote anti-cop violence. Eneale Pickett is a sophomore student at UW who also recently launched a page called, “Insertapparelshop on Etsy.” The shop offers hoodies for $30 carrying four different messages. One reads, “All White People Are Racist,” with the product description describing how this is allegedly the case. “Racism has little to do with hatred and mostly to do with who has power,” the page says. “White folk...

    Jurors in the University of Virginia defamation trial heard former Rolling Stone reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s extensive taped interviews of fake gang-rape victim “Jackie” on Friday — including an exchange in which “Jackie” displayed a tattoo she got to brand herself as a survivor. “Did it ever occur to you that someone would get a tattoo on their body to commemorate a sexual assault that didn’t happen?” Rolling Stone defense lawyer Scott Sexton asked of the tattoo, described as a women’s symbol with a fist, a rose, and the word “unbreakable.”
