Thousands rally in Philippines to warn of Duterte 'dictatorship' - Reuters

MANILA (Reuters) - Left-wing activists and political opponents of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte held rallies on Thursday to warn against what they see as the emergence of a dictatorship under the no-nonsense but hugely popular leader.

Politicians, indigenous people, church leaders, businessmen, and leftists marched, staged rallies and attended masses to denounce Duterte, accusing him of abuses and authoritarianism similar to that of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

The events were to mark the 45th anniversary of the declaration of martial law under Marcos, which lasted nine years and is remembered by many Filipinos as brutal and oppressive.

Vice President Leni Robredo appeared at a mass at the University of the Philippines, traditionally a hotbed of political activism, and was due to appear at a rally of the opposition Liberal Party she leads.

Neighbors yell 'he can't hear you' before Oklahoma City officer fatally shoots deaf man - Washington Post


Police Capt. Bo Mathews answers a question at a news conference in Oklahoma City on Sept. 20. (Sue Ogrocki/AP)

Neighbors yelled “he can’t hear you!” But the two officers kept shouting commands.

Sgt. Christopher Barnes and Lt. Matthew Lindsey ordered Magdiel Sanchez to drop a 2-foot-long metal pipe. Instead, the 35-year-old stepped from the porch of the single-story house in suburban Oklahoma City, apparently oblivious to the shouts.

With about 15 feet of distance between them, both officers discharged their weapons — one a gun, the other a taser. Sanchez was pronounced dead at the scene Tuesday night.

The uniformed officers arrived at the address looking for the driver of a hit-and-run incident nearby. Sanchez was the son of the driver they were looking for. What they did not seem to know was that he was deaf.

Google's $1.1 billion HTC deal: Can Google learn from its Motorola miscues? - ZDNet

Google is serious about manufacturing its own hardware...again.

Google has acquired "certain HTC employees" mostly working on the Pixel smartphones and a non-exclusive license to intellectual property in a move that foreshadows that it is serious about integrating software and hardware. HTC gets $1.1 billion and said it will continue to manufacture smartphones under its brand as well as its VIVE virtual reality system.

The purchase of HTC's division isn't likely amount to much--HTC is valued at $1.9 billion--but Google would acquire a supply chain, research and development and skills that would be hard to create in-house. HTC had already halted shares pending an announcement.

Google pays $1.1b for HTC staff and IP | HTC suspends trading, Google acquisition rumors blaze to life

If this HTC deal sounds vaguely familiar that's because it was only a few years ago that Google bought...

Mexicans Dig Through Quake Rubble as Death Toll Passes 200 - New York Times

At one site, Santiago Borden, 10, was straining to help, carrying a heavy jug of water over his shoulder. Eventually he gave up and passed the burden to his father.

“You’re a kid so you can’t expect to do everything,” his father, Abraham Borden, a lawyer and local politician, said to comfort him.

“I want to show solidarity,” Santiago said.

His father replied: “Of course you do. You’re Mexican, after all.”

The work has been nonstop since the earthquake struck. Overnight, whirring generators powered floodlights to illuminate the disaster scenes. And almost always, accompanying the rescue workers were volunteers clearing debris and distributing water, surgical masks and mustard-colored work gloves.

The scene at a collapsed building on Laredo Street took a grim turn shortly after dawn, as two bodies were unearthed from the wreckage. Still, work continued.

Kim Jong-Un ordered anti-aircraft gun executions and kept teenage sex slaves, defector claims - New Zealand Herald

A North Korean defector has revealed she watched as 11 musicians were blown to bits by anti-aircraft guns - and saw her teenage classmates dragged off to become Kim Jong-Un's sex slaves.

Hee Yeon Lim, 26, opened up about how the tyrant nonchalantly orders executions of people - including family members.

The Pyongyang graduate risked her life by making the revelations but did so to expose sensitive information about the leader, according to Daily Mail.

She claims he forces the upper classes in Pyongyang to watch the horrific killings and later enjoys $1800 lunches.

Hurricane Maria Live Updates: Puerto Rico Loses Power and Sets a Curfew - New York Times

Federal officials say they are prepared to help.

President Trump said on Wednesday that he had “never seen” winds like the ones generated by Hurricane Maria as it made landfall in Puerto Rico.

Continue reading the main story

“We have a big one going right now — I’ve never seen winds like this — in Puerto Rico,” he said as he entered a meeting in New York with King Abdullah II of Jordan. “You take a look at what’s happening there, and it’s just one after another.”

The king extended his “condolences” to residents in the path of the three storms that have hit the United States over the last several weeks, adding, “For us sitting on the outside, looking at how the Americans came together at a difficult time, is really an example to everybody else.”

On CNN, Brock Long, the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said that the agency was well positioned to help on...

Left on 'full war footing' to stop Obamacare repeal - Politico

The liberal activists roused into the streets by President Donald Trump are revving up for one last campaign to save Obamacare.

The sudden resurgence of Republicans’ repeal push appeared to catch Democrats and their base by surprise. But ahead of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plans to vote next week on a new bill to dismantle the health law, the Democratic grassroots is on what one leading activist called “full war footing.”

Story Continued Below

From a new six-figure advertising campaign by the pro-Obamacare group Save My Care to a flurry of rallies planned on the ground, the left is throwing everything it can at the new repeal bill from Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

"The reality is that the progressive coalition has never been more unified or determined than they are right now,” Organizing for Action spokesman Jesse Lehrich said in an...

Hillary Clinton: Vladimir Putin Is a Sexist Manspreader, Trump's UN Speech 'Dark and Dangerous' - Newsweek

Hillary Clinton continued her book publicity tour Tuesday night when she stopped by CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

As well as touting her memoir What Happened about the 2016 presidential election, Clinton, who was often accused of being cold and impersonal during the campaign trail, showed good humor as she shared a glass of Chardonnay with Colbert and even dropped a few anecdotes.

The most interesting story was her difficult relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin during her time as secretary of state under President Obama.

Under latest health-care bill, red states would benefit disproportionately - Washington Post

The latest Republican proposal for curtailing the Affordable Care Act was assembled with such haste that it may get a vote before a full cost estimate is finished. But it is not a new idea.

At its core, the bill introduced by Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) would implement a decades-old conservative concept, capping the amount that taxpayers spend on Medicaid and giving states full control over the program. As he’s sold the legislation to conservative governors and activists, Graham has described it as a possible triumph for federalism, and a way to end the progressive dream of universal health care managed from Washington.

“Let’s get back to the basics of being conservative,” Graham said in a Saturday interview with Breitbart News. “We take the money that we would spend on Obamacare in Washington, and we block grant it to the states.”

What’s new, thanks...
