Bombshell report on Trump taxes sends GOP nominee reeling

Trump tax reportIt took less than a day for October to produce an "October surprise."

Donald Trump reported a nearly $1 billion loss on his 1995 tax returns and could therefore have avoided paying federal income taxes for almost two decades, the New York Times reported on Saturday, putting another unexpected exclamation point on what had already been one of the worst weeks for any presidential nominee in recent memory.


Texas activists who lost one pipeline fight set sights on ne

Dakota access pipeline protest

It looks to Lori Glover “like a long snake going across the whole desert”. For David Keller, it is “like having a very beautiful historic home and having someone run a bulldozer through the kitchen”. And in Yolonda Blue Horse’s view, it is another example of disrespect from an industry that does not care about native people.

Before the Dakota Access pipeline sparked continuing protests that led to national attention and an Obama administration intervention, a feisty group of activists in remote west Texas waged a long battle against the same company when it pressed ahead with plans to run a 143-mile natural gas pipeline to Mexico through some of the state’s most pristine countryside.


Mexico's Colima volcano erupts, 3 hamlets evacuated

Colima volcanoEruptions at the Colima volcano in western Mexico continued Saturday, forcing authorities to evacuate hundreds of people from three hamlets on the volcano's slopes.

The civil defense office in Jalisco state said glowing-hot rock continued to flow down the volcano's southern and southeastern slopes, and vapor and ash emissions continued.


Height of Hypocrisy: Trump's history with sex tapes

Trump sex tapesIn an apparent pique on Friday morning, Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter against Alicia Machado― the former Miss Universe winner who has become a forceful critic of the GOP presidential nominee ― accusing her of, among other things, appearing in a sex tape.

The charges, and Trump, came off as manic; not least because they were leveled at roughly 5:30 a.m. They were also hypocritical. Trump had made a cameo in a softcore porn film in 1999, titled “Playboy Video Centerfold 2000,” BuzzFeed News reported on Friday afternoon. He wasn’t naked or having sex, just breaking a champagne bottle over a car in the video’s opening scenes. Still, of the two principals in this argument, only one ― the accuser ― had actually made an appearance in porn.

Amman protests: Jordan-Israel natural gas deal in focus

Amman oritests gas dealHundreds of Jordanians have taken part in a demonstration in the centre of Amman in protest against a deal signed this week to import natural gas from Israel.

Demonstrators carried banners on Friday, reading: "No to financing the Zionist entity from the pockets of Jordanian citizens" and "No to gas imports from the Zionist enemy".

The protest was called by trade unions and political parties opposed to the 1994 peace treaty between Israel and Jordan, half the population of which is of Palestinian origin.


Powerful Category 4 Hurricane Matthew Heads For Jamaica And Cuba

Hurricane matthewHurricane Matthew strengthened on Friday into the Caribbean’s first major hurricane in four years as it moved towards Jamaica and Cuba with winds of up to 140 miles per hour (220 kph) powerful enough to wreck houses, forecasters said.

Matthew was about 465 miles (750 km) southeast of Kingston, Jamaica, and the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) designated it as a Category 4, the second strongest on the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity.


World Leaders Gather For The Burial Of Former Israeli Leader Shimon Peres

Shimon Peres funeralWelcoming Abbas, as participants recorded the encounter on their cellphones, Netanyahu said of his attendance: “It’s something that I appreciate very much on behalf of our people and on behalf of us.”

But Abbas’s rare visit to the city, a short drive through Israeli military checkpoints from Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank, seemed unlikely to yield anything more than handshakes.
