Poland challenged on court reformThe European Union said Saturday it has launched legal action against Poland's right-wing government over a new law it fears will undermine the independence of the country's common courts.

Trump Hints at Killing Subsidy Giving Health Care to Poor

Trup may cut health care for poor President Donald Trump hinted that he may end a key Affordable Care Act subsidy that makes insurance accessible to poorer Americans, a move that may critically destabilize health-insurance exchanges.

NFL Still Owes More Than Half Its Brain-Research Pledge

NFl owes half its CTE pledgeThe National Institutes of Health is ending its partnership with the NFL to study concussions and brain disease, with more than half of the $30 million the league pledged unpaid, according to ESPN.

The NIH decision to let the agreement expire follows a “bitter dispute in 2015 in which the NFL backed out of a major study” into chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, that was awarded to Dr. Robert Stern, a neuroscientist at Boston University School of Medicine with a history of criticizing the league, ESPN reported.

Businessman Paints Terrifying And Complex Picture Of Putin's Russia

William BrowderThe financier Bill Browder has emerged as an unlikely central player in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Sergei Magnitsky, an attorney Browder hired to investigate official corruption, died in Russian custody in 2009.

Congress subsequently imposed sanctions on the officials it held responsible for his death, passing the Magnitsky Act in 2012. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government retaliated, among other ways, by suspending American adoptions of Russian children.

The president is a pyromaniac': the week Trump set fire to the White House

The President is a PyromaniacDonald Trump began the week by turning a national scout jamboree into something resembling a youth rally. He ended it in front of more massed ranks in uniform, telling police officers “please don’t be too nice” to suspects they arrest in what sounded to many like an endorsement of police brutality.

And then, amid a blizzard of stories about White House infighting, chief of staff Reince Priebus resigned, becoming the shortest-serving occupant of the post in history. Though he seemed blithely unaware of it, it was a fitting finale to the worst week of Trump’s short political career.

Judge blocks Arkansas from enforcing 4 abortion restrictions

US District Court Judge Kristine BakerA federal judge has blocked Arkansas from enforcing four new abortion restrictions, including a ban on a common second trimester procedure and a fetal remains law that opponents say would effectively require a partner's consent before a woman could get an abortion.

U.S. District Court Judge Kristine Baker issued a preliminary injunction late Friday night against the new restrictions, three of which were set to take effect Tuesday. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Reproductive Rights had challenged the measures, suing on behalf of Dr. Frederick Hopkins, a Little Rock abortion provider.

Trump encourages police to abuse people they arrestThe national civil rights and advocacy community came down hard on President Trump for comments he made Friday on Long Island that seemed to encourage violence on the part of the police.

Organizations from the Southern Poverty Law Center to the YWCA, and from Amnesty International to the American Civil Liberties Union admonished the president for his words that appeared to endorse excessive use of force by police. The president made the remarks during a speech touting the administration’s work to banish the notorious, transnational MS-13 street gang.

1 dead, 6 injured after knife attack at supermarket

Hamburg knife attackA man armed with a kitchen knife fatally stabbed one person at a supermarket Friday in the northern German city of Hamburg and six others were injured as he fled, police said. He was overpowered and arrested.

The suspect is a 26-year-old who was born in the United Arab Emirates, police said, though they were still working to establish his nationality. Hamburg's mayor said that the man had apparently sought shelter in Germany and that authorities had been unable to deport him because he had no papers.

The assailant entered the supermarket in Hamburg's Barmbek district Friday afternoon and stabbed one man, who died at the scene. Police said the victim is believed to be a 50-year-old German.
