Crews scramble to protect homes from fierce California wildfire
More than 1,200 firefighters aided by water-dropping helicopters battled a wind-driven wildfire raging out of control in Northern California on Monday, threatening homes and other structures as thick black smoke drifted across the San Francisco Bay Area. The so-called County Fire, which broke out on Saturday afternoon in rural Yolo County, west of Sacramento, has already blackened more than 50 square miles of grass, brush and dense scrub oak and was only 3 percent contained as of Monday afternoon. Scott McLean of the California Department of Forestry and Fire protection said the job of hand crews and bulldozer operators trying to cut containment lines was made more difficult by high winds, which were blowing embers and starting new spot fires.

Tesla's all-nighter to hit production goal fails to convince Wall Street
Tesla met the target by running 24 hours a day for seven days, setting up a new production line inside a tent on the campus of its Fremont factory and pulling workers from other projects, according to the company and employees at the factory. Tesla's heavily-shorted shares rose as much as 6.4 percent to $364.78 in early trading, but sank after several analysts questioned whether Tesla would be able to sustain the Model 3 production momentum, which is crucial for the long-term financial health of the company. "In the interim, we do not see this production rate as operationally or financially sustainable," said CFRA analyst Efraim Levy.

North Korea appeals to China for economic help as it reopens radio channel with the South
North and South Korea reopened a maritime communication channel on Sunday, with vessels from the two countries making radio contact for the first time in a decade, South Korea's Defence Ministry said in a statement. A North Korean patrol boat responded immediately when the South Korean Navy contacted it via an international radio channel at 9 am Sunday in the western sea, normalizing the maritime communication channel for the first time in 10 years, according to the ministry. The move showed the two Koreas were "taking practical steps" to uphold agreements made on April 27 when their leaders decided to defuse military tensions in a gradual manner, an official from the ministry said. It was also on Sunday reported that Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has appealed to China's Xi Jinping to help end sanctions against Pyongyang following his landmark summit with US President Donald Trump. Kim made the request during his third meeting with Mr Xi in Beijing last month, and the Chinese president promised to do his "utmost" to satisfy it, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said.

Hero dog suffers swollen snout after saving owner from rattlesnake bite
When his owner almost stepped on a rattlesnake during an early morning hike near their home in Arizona, Todd, the golden retriever, knew exactly what to do. The six-month old puppy jumped in front of Paula Godwin. Instead of Ms Godwin's legs, the venomous fangs sank into his snout. The grateful owner posted the story of their snake encounter on Facebook, alongside photographs of Todd's swollen features. "As we were walking down the hill I literally almost stepped on a rattlesnake. But my hero of a puppy Todd saved me," she wrote. Paula Godwin's post quickly went viral "He jumped right in front of my leg where I surely would have got bit. This is what a hero looks like." Her saviour was yelping in pain after the bite, so she scooped the dog up in her arms and set off to a nearby animal hospital with her other dog copper. Todd was given a shot of anti-venom and allowed home to recover after 12 hours. "Please say a little prayer for my sweet hero," wrote Ms Godwin. Todd is making a good recovery, even if he remains a little sore Credit: Paula Godwin/Facebook The result was an outpouring of love as the story went viral, along with more tales from dog owners of how man's best friend had warded off snake attacks.

Merkel moves to placate coalition partners in crucial migrant meeting
Angela Merkel will move to end the rebellion in her creaking coalition government on Sunday after announcing bilateral deals with 14 EU member states to accept the return of asylum seekers to the countries where they first arrived. The agreements announced yesterday are aimed at placating her conservative Bavarian CSU coalition partners who have threatened to unilaterally shut Germany's borders if Mrs Merkel does not adopt a more hardline migration policy. Analysts said that the German chancellor's future remained deeply uncertain despite her apparently winning enough concessions at last week's European Council summit to placate her CSU partners. Both Mrs Merkel's Christian Democrat (CDU) party and the Bavarian CSU party will meet in Germany's parliament on Sunday afternoon in a bid to broker a truce with the CSU and it's chairman Horst Seehofer, who serves as her interior minister. A CDU source said that there was a general expectation that both sides would "muddle through" but added warned against presuming that a deal would be done, given how unpredictable the CSU leadership was, and how "stubborn" Mrs Merkel could be. Alexander Graf Lambsdorff of the opposition Free Democrats (FDP) said both the CDU and the CSU were now so erratic no-one should predict the outcome.

It is one of the lasting images of Mexico's election campaign: as a Congressional candidate poses for a selfie with a supporter, a man in a baseball cap calmly approaches and shoots him in the back of the head. Fernando Puron, who was running for Congress in the northern state of Coahuila, is one of 136 politicians murdered since candidate registration for Sunday's elections in Mexico opened in September, according to the consulting firm Etellekt. It is by far the bloodiest Mexican campaign on record, as the violence gripping the country has exploded massively into the political world.

Hong Kong's pro-democracy protesters defiant, but rally turnout hits a low
By Venus Wu HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong's annual pro-democracy protest saw one of the lowest turnouts in history, as thousands braved sweltering heat to protest against Beijing's tightening grip over the city on Sunday, the 21st anniversary of its return to Chinese rule. Hong Kong's opposition has lost much steam in the past year, which saw elected pro-democracy legislators disqualified and some of the most prominent activists jailed. Against the fall of Hong Kong."

Birth of a planet captured for first time as gas giant bigger than Jupiter swirls into existence
Even by astronomical standards it is a discovery that is out of this world. Scientists have for the first time witnessed the birth of a planet, a huge gas giant many times the size of Jupiter, swirling into existence 370 light years from Earth.  The theory of how gas planets form from a vortex of hydrogen and helium molecules captivated by their own gravity, is now widely accepted by scientists. But it has never been seen before, until now. Today scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg and the SPHERE instrument consortium at the Very Large Telescope of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile, released a spectacular image of the birth  The planet, currently known as PDS 70b, is shown orbiting within a huge spinning ‘protoplanetary disc' of gas and dust, which proves it is continuing to accumulate matter, and so is not yet fully formed.  The newborn sits within a 5.4 million year old solar system, orbiting a star called PDS 70 at a distance of 1.8 billion miles.  The planet stands out clearly in the image, visible as a bright point to the right of the blackened centre. The dark region at the centre of the image is due to a coronagraph, a mask which blocks the blinding light of the central star and allows astronomers to detect the faint light from the planet. "For our study, we selected PDS 70, a star that was already suspected of having a young planet circling around it," says Miriam Keppler,

Less than a week after her stunning primary win, Ocasio-Cortez is told she's too leftwing to win key midwestern votes. Hillary Clinton's adopted home elevated her to within striking distance of the Democratic nomination. In a primary last Tuesday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old leftwing activist and Sanders organizer, defeated Joe Crowley, a 10-term House Democrat and potential contender for speaker, in an outer-borough New York district.

Justice Clarence Thomas leading the US supreme court? A scary thought
Perhaps because of this, his extreme, rightwing jurisprudence has not been seen as very influential, unlike that of his ideological clone, the late Antonin Scalia or the court's newcomer, Neil Gorsuch. Already, this most recent court term has been a debacle for the liberal justices who, according to Adam Liptak of the New York Times, largely failed to peel off Kennedy to form a majority in the major cases. Already there is much speculation that Donald Trump's nominee to replace Kennedy will be, if confirmed, the decisive vote to overturn Roe v Wade, the decision legalizing a woman's right to have an abortion.
