Violence flares after protest march in downtown Hong Kong
Police fired chemical-laced blue water and tear gas at protesters who lobbed Molotov cocktails outside the Hong Kong government office complex Sunday, as violence flared anew after thousands of pro-democracy supporters marched through downtown in defiance of a police ban. A mixed crowd of hardcore protesters in black and wearing masks, along with families with children, spilled into the roads of the Causeway Bay shopping belt and marched for over 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) to the central business district. Some waved U.S. and British flags, while others carried posters reiterating their calls for democratic reforms.

Trump is seriously, frighteningly, dangerously nuts - the world is in danger
It is almost too late for impeachment. The 25th amendment is untested. The ballot box offers our only remaining hope Donald Trump speaks to reporters at the White House. Photograph: Kevin Lamarque/ReutersIn retrospect, what's most disturbing about "Sharpiegate" isn't Trump's clumsy effort to doctor a National Weather Service map or even his brazen move to get the same agency to lie on his behalf.It's how utterly petty his motive was. We've had presidents trying to cover up a sexual liaison with an intern and a botched burglary, but never have we had one who went to such lengths to cover up an inaccurate weather forecast. Alabama being hit by a hurricane? Friends, this is not rational behavior.Trump also cancelled a meeting with the Taliban at Camp David. The meeting was to have been secret. It was scheduled for the week of the anniversary of 9/11. He cancelled it by tweet. Does any of this strike you as even remotely rational?Before that, Trump cancelled a state visit to Denmark because Denmark wouldn't sell Greenland to the US. Hello? Greenland wasn't for sale. The US no longer buys populated countries. The state visit had been planned for months.He has repeatedly told senior officials to explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes hitting the US. He believes video games cause mass shootings. He thinks climate change is no big deal. No president has ever been sent packing. Nixon resigned because he saw it coming.

At two of the world's biggest coal mines, the finances got so bad that their owner couldn't even get toilet paper on credit.

Trump confirms death of Al-Qaeda heir Hamza bin Laden
US President Donald Trump on Saturday confirmed that Hamza bin Laden, the son and designated heir of Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden, was killed in a counter-terrorism operation in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region. US media reported more than a month ago, citing intelligence officials, that the younger Bin Laden had been killed sometime in the last two years in an operation that involved the United States. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said last month that it was "his understanding" that Bin Laden, who was thought to be about 30, was dead.

Felicity Huffman's two-week jail sentence triggers claims of  'white privilege'
Actress Felicity Huffman has been accused of benefiting from "white privilege" after getting just a two-week jail sentence over paying to inflate her daughter's exam results.  US congressman Hakeem Jeffries, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Martina Navratilova, the tennis player, were among those who took to Twitter to suggest Ms Huffman had got off lightly given her background.  There was also criticism of the minimum-security prison she will be incarcerated in, which reportedly has the nickname "Club Fed" because of its cushy conditions.  Ms Huffman, best known for her starring role in the TV series Desperate Housewives, was one of the most famous names caught up in the college admissions scandal. Prosecutors alleged that parents, often rich and white, broke the law by paying someone to ensure their child got into top colleges, sometimes by phony sports scholarships.  Many of the cases are still going through the courts.  Ms Huffman pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit fraud. She expressed regret at paying $15,000 to inflate her daughter's SAT test score, saying it was to her "eternal shame" that she did not pull out of the scheme.  She was sentenced to 14 days in prison, as well as a fine $30,000 fine, supervised release for a year and 250 hours of community service.  Like many, Mr Jeffries and Navratilova questioned the sentence by comparing it to Crystal Mason, an African-American woman given a five-year sentence for voting while on supervised re

Soaking thunderstorms to impact the Midwest Saturday
In what has been an active weather week across the Midwest, more thunderstorms are expected to fire up once again late Saturday afternoon through the overnight hours.An area of low pressure is expected to track out of the northern Plains and into the Midwest through the day, acting as a focal point for thunderstorm activity late in the afternoon.Thunderstorms are expected to fire up along a frontal boundary extending east from the center of low pressure that will set up in southern Minnesota and central Wisconsin. As the afternoon progresses through the evening and into the overnight hours, individual thunderstorms are expected to congeal into an organized complex of thunderstorms as they track south and eastward into portions of Iowa and southern Wisconsin.Storms may have enough energy through the overnight hours to continue to produce localized gusty winds and torrential downpours into northern Illinois before sunrise on Sunday.Many Midwestern cities that are under the threat for severe weather Saturday have observed above-average rainfall totals through this point in September. This includes the cities of Minneapolis, Des Moines, Iowa; and Madison, Wisconsin.Travelers along interstates 35, 80 and 90 may face travel issues if traveling late in the day or overnight and are urged to take necessary precautions to avoid these hazards.Be sure to slow down to minimize the risk for hydroplaning when traveling at highway speeds, and never drive through a flooded roadway.
