Chile cancels climate and Apec summits amid mass protests

Sebastian Pinera cancels Apec summit amid protests

Chile has pulled out of hosting two major international summits, including a UN climate change conference, as anti-government protests continue.

President Sebastián Piñera said the decision "caused him a lot of pain" but his government needed "to prioritise re-establishing public order".

The COP25 climate summit was scheduled for December, while the Apec trade summit was due next month.

The UN said it was now "exploring alternative hosting options".

Chile's decision comes amid global climate protests, including a week of strikes led by environmental activist Greta Thunberg last month.

'Bird emergency': Climate change threatening two-thirds of species in U.S. with extinction, report says

Climate change threatens two thirds of bird population

About two-thirds of America's birds will be threatened with extinction if global warming tops 5.4 degrees by 2100, according to a report released Thursday from the National Audubon Society, a bird-focused conservation group.

“A lot of people paid attention to last month’s report that North America has lost nearly a third of its birds," said David Yarnold, CEO and president of Audubon. "This new data pivots forward and imagines an even more frightening future. It's a bird emergency."

In all, about 389 out of 604 species are at risk of extinction from climate change. A few of the imperiled species include state birds such as Minnesota's common loon, New Jersey's goldfinch and California's quail.

Grassley breaks with Trump over protecting whistleblower

Chuck Grassley breaks with Trump over whistleblowers

As President Donald Trump and his allies attack the whistleblower that kicked off the House's impeachment inquiry, the still unidentified person gained a powerful ally on Tuesday: Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley.

The most senior GOP senator has fashioned a career on protecting whistleblowers during presidencies of both parties. And in the middle of one of the most tempestuous political storms in two decades, the seventh-term Iowan is sticking to his position even if it’s at odds with the president himself.

In a Tuesday statement, Grassley moved to stave off attacks and the unmasking of the federal whistleblower who first divulged Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president. Trump and many of his allies in Congress and outside have been working to chip away at the whisleblower’s credibility, calling his complaint “hearsay” and playing down its validity.

After 10 suspicious deaths at VA hospital, veterans demand answers. 'It's scary – really scary'

VA hospital deathsAt the center of town, next to the aging stone courthouse, stand several war memorials.

Etched in granite are the names of 93 veterans awarded the Purple Heart for being wounded or killed in 20th century battles. A flag mounted atop fading concrete honors fallen heroes of the USS West Virginia, sunk during the Pearl Harbor attack that brought the country into World War II.

They're similar to monuments in many small towns, a public declaration of the community's patriotism.

Now, they're a reminder of betrayal as authorities investigate about 10 suspicious deaths at the VA hospital a few miles away. Two of those deaths have been ruled homicides.

'Your numbers are fake': Puerto Rico newspaper slams Trump for touting hurricane aid claim

El Nueve Dia slams TrumpPuerto Rico's leading newspaper slammed President Donald Trump in a front-page headline that went after his repeated false claim that the U.S. has given Puerto Rico $92 billion for hurricane recovery.

El Nuevo Día, which traditionally publishes its articles and newspapers in Spanish, printed an English version of its front page on Friday.

"Mr. President: Your Numbers Are Fake," the headline reads.

"Although some politicians in Puerto Rico have indeed mismanaged funds and have let their constituents down, Mr. Trump's claims about the amount of money that has actually been assigned to the island are incorrect," read the the front page.

Video, reports of machines automatically changing votes in Mississippi GOP Governor runoff

Video shows machine changeThere have been at least three reports confirmed by officials of voting machines in two Mississippi counties changing voters' selections in the state's GOP governor primary runoff.

In one case, the glitch was caught on video.

Tuesday morning, Facebook user Sally Kate Walker posted a video showing what appeared to be a touch-screen machine changing someone's selection from Bill Waller Jr. to Tate Reeves.

While officials confirmed the problems only with three machines in two counties, the Waller campaign early Tuesday evening said it had received more widespread reports of the same issue.
