American Prosecutor Rachelle Bergeron Shot Dead With Her Dog in Micronesia

Rachelle Bergeron shot and killed in Micronesia

Friends said Tuesday that lawyer Rachelle Bergeron planned to soon return to the U.S. after a challenging stint prosecuting criminals on the Pacific nation of Micronesia, but she was shot and killed as she returned home from a run with her dog.

Bergeron's husband was inside the couple's house Monday night baking brownies with a local child the couple was helping care for when somebody fired three shots at Bergeron as she pulled up and opened the back of her Subaru hatchback, killing both her and her dog, said one friend, Amos Collins.

The killing has shocked the tiny island of Yap, home to 11,000 people, where Bergeron served as acting attorney general of Yap State. Authorities say they're investigating the crime but haven't yet arrested any suspects.

Trio wins economics Nobel for fighting poverty

Trio wins Nobel economics prize

U.S.-based economists Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Michael Kremer won the 2019 Nobel Economics Prize on Monday for work in fighting global poverty that has helped millions of children by favouring practical steps over theory.

French-American Duflo becomes only the second female economics winner in the prize’s 50-year history, as well as the youngest at 46. She shared the award equally with Indian-born American Banerjee and Kremer, also of the United States.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said their work had shown how poverty could be addressed by breaking it down into smaller and more precise questions in areas such as education and healthcare, making problems easier to solve.

    Simone Biles most decorated gymnast in world history

    Simone Biles on Sunday became the most decorated world championship gymnast in history.

    According to CNN, Biles made history on Sunday after clinching her 25th medal at the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany. Biles had won the gold medal on the balance beam.

    With the new medal, in addition to another gold medal she won on floor exercise earlier on Sunday, the 22-year-old star gymnast smashed a previous record that had previously been held by Belarusian Vitaly Scherbo for decades.

    Prior this weekend, Scherbo held the title as the most decorated world championship gymnast after winning his 23rd world medal in 1996. However, Scherbo had only won 12 gold world medals throughout his career, according to The Associated Press.

    6 million evacuated in japan

    A 50-year-old man was killed near Tokyo early on Saturday in a car overturned by punishing winds, while another person died after being washed away in a car, public broadcaster NHK said. Nine people remain missing in landslides and flooding, it said.

    Authorities issued evacuation advisories and orders for more than 6 million people across the country as the storm unleashed the heaviest rain and winds in years. Some 80 injuries have been reported so far, while more than 270,000 households lost power, NHK said.

    The storm, which the government said could be the strongest to hit Tokyo since 1958, brought record-breaking rainfall in many areas, including the popular resort town of Hakone, with a whopping 939.5 mm (37 inches) of rain over 24 hours.

    Senior China adviser: Trump to blame for delays in securing final trade deal, says China has been 'accommodating'

    China trade talks with USA senior adviser to China's government told USA TODAY on Saturday that multiple delays by the United States and China to reach a final, substantive trade deal are largely because of President Donald Trump's concerns about the 2020 election.

    "Look, Christmas is coming. He wants to be president again. American consumers are not going to accept higher prices on all these goods. He can claim victory any time he wants but that doesn't mean he's won or that a deal has actually been reached," said Huiyao Wang, who spoke to USA TODAY on the sidelines of a geopolitical conference here.

    Wang, who is not directly involved in the negotiations, was replying to questions about an emerging trade deal between the United States and China that Trump outlined Friday. Wang was appointed to China's state council in 2015 by China's Vice Premier Liu He, the country's second-in-command who was in Washington Friday for trade negotiations.

    Ex-Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch says Trump 'pressured' State Department to remove her, reports say

    Marie Yovanovitxh testifies before House committeeMarie L. Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, said the State Department removed her from the diplomatic post earlier this year after being pressured by President Donald Trump, according to her opening statement in a closed-door hearing on Capitol Hill with lawmakers Friday.

    In her remarks obtained by The New York Times and The Washington Post, Yovanovitch said she was told by a high-ranking agency official "that the President had lost confidence in me and no longer wished me to serve as his ambassador."

    The State Department official "added that there had been a concerted campaign against me, and that the department had been under pressure from the president to remove me since the Summer of 2018," according to her prepared remarks. "He also said that I had done nothing wrong and that this was not like other situations where he had recalled ambassadors for cause. I departed Ukraine for good this past May."

    Civilians Flee As Turkish Forces Strike Kurds In Northern Syria

    Civilians flee as Turkish forces attack

    As Turkish soldiers launched an assault on U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters in northern Syria and panicked civilians fled the battle zone, the White House sought to tamp down intense criticism over what many view as Washington's acquiescence in the incursion.

    Turkey's forces crossed the border on Wednesday, carrying out airstrikes and artillery barrages against the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish militia that has fought alongside the U.S. in efforts to dismantle the Islamic State in Syria.

    Turkey accuses the SDF of having links with the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, a Kurdish separatist group based in Turkey and Iraq, which is responsible for years of violent attacks within Turkey.

    TVNL Comment: This is ethnic cleansing, pure and simple.  Trump has sold out for his Trump Towers in Istanbul.  How can anyone still support this evil man?
