The Amazon blazes have captured the attention of the world and its leaders, and for good reason -- the destruction of one of the world's major carbon stores could strike a devastating blow to the fight against climate change, and to the homes and livelihoods of indigenous communities.
Tropical Storm Karen formed just east of the Windward Islands and has sustained winds of 40 mph. A tropical storm warning has been issued for Trinidad and Tobago, along with Grenada and its dependencies.
A surging Sen. Elizabeth Warren is challenging Joe Biden's dominance in the race for the Democratic nomination, standing at 22% to the former vice president's 20% in a new CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll of likely Iowa caucusgoers.
I've been hearing a new conversation in coffee shops and happy hours around the country. One friend makes their prediction of who will win in November 2020, and the other nods in agreement. But then the voices become hushed as the second person asks, "But do you really think the other side will accept the results?"
In an interview with CNN's Van Jones, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said that he's one of the few candidates who has been consistently growing, and while he's also a businessman like President Donald Trump, he would never run the government like a business.
Hundreds of mourners took to the streets of Seoul Saturday to remember a mother who fled poverty in North Korea, only to die of suspected starvation in her small apartment in South Korea. Mourners, mostly defectors themselves, marched with two symbolic empty caskets to the Blue House, South Korea's presidential office, eventually clashing with the police.
There's always a debate, it seems, around the "Immaculate Reception," the unbelievable winning play from a 1972 AFC divisional playoff game in which Pittsburgh Steelers halfback Franco Harris plucked a deflected pass and ran for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
A flaw in iOS 13, the new iPhone operating system Apple released Thursday, exposes contact details stored in iPhones without requiring a passcode or biometric identification. And Apple has known about the flaw since July, a person who reported the bug to Apple told CNN Business.
For Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, blackface is a mere obstacle to overcome in his campaign run after receiving rebukes this week for darkening his face several times in the past. But for the millions of black, Indigenous and other people of color in Canada, this is far more than a simple scandal. Blackface is a reminder that people of color are still considered to be 'characters' instead of equal and full human beings.
Last March, the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies hosted a conference entitled "Conflict over Gaza: People, Politics, and Possibilities." A month later, Representative George Holding, a North Carolina Republican who represents a neighboring district that appears to have been carefully drawn to avoid the Democratic-leaning areas around the universities, sent a letter to the US Department of Education demanding an investigation of alleged use of taxpayer dollars to support anti-Semitism on campus.
The reports of a Delta Airlines flight on Wednesday, September 18th, en route from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale, plunging 30,000 feet, describe a dramatic experienceβbut they appear to mischaracterize something: the incident reflects the execution of a very precise procedure, not a tumble, potentially, into oblivion.
The trade war with China has reached a new industry: subway cars. Congress is considering legislation that would prevent the world's largest train maker, the Chinese-owned CRRC Corporation, from competing on new contracts in the United States.
Even though the lines between politics and entertainment have been blurred from the beginning in the Trump administration, Sean Spicer twirling the frills on the sleeves of his neon, lime-green shirt on "Dancing With The Stars" ("DWTS") have brought us to a collective new low.
On the same street corner in Seoul where 10,000 South Korean women rallied last October to demand an end to spy cameras and sexual violence, the leader of a new activist group addressed a small group of angry young men.
Boris Johnson has been backed into a corner over Brexit. Partly through his own missteps, partly from the growing opposition to his "do-or-die" Brexit plan, Johnson is a man for whom the losses are piling up, while the UK is a country running out of time.
First, authorities discovered a spine-chilling 2,246 fetal remains in the Illinois garage of an abortion doctor after his death. Then, investigators found "thousands" of abandoned medical records across his abortion clinics in Indiana, the Indiana attorney general announced on Friday.
"Between Two Ferns: The Movie" is perhaps inevitably best consumed in bite-sized bits, bringing back Zach Galifianakis from his popular web series as the worst (or depending on one's point of view, best) celebrity interviewer ever. The movie's conceit is hit-miss, but when it works -- yielding deadpan insults and pained expressions -- there are enough laughs to make digging up "Ferns" look like a fine idea.
