Carlos Ghosn, the auto world's 'cost killer'
Brazilian-born Carlos Ghosn, who is facing a pay scandal in Japan, has long stood out among the world's auto executives as a hard-nosed workaholic willing to take drastic measures to get companies back on their feet quickly. As head of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, Ghosn has created an industrial behemoth, its combined 470,000 employees selling 10.6 million vehicles last year from 122 factories around the globe. It is not the first time Ghosn has gotten into hot water over pay, in particular a combined salary that makes him one of the highest-paid CEOs in France and one of the best-paid foreign executives in Japan.

Officer, please let this patient and rather important cat into 10 Downing Street
Reporting from the steps of 10 Downing Street, one expects to be upstaged by the sudden appearance of the UK's Prime Minister Theresa May. But one news reporter found his broadcast instead overshadowed by a very patient cat waiting to be let inside the London premises by a police officer. SEE ALSO: A firefighter rescued a cat from the Paradise fire and she won't leave him alone The moment, which the BBC called "the most British thing you'll see today," was caught on Tuesday during a news report from Sky News' political correspondent Tom Rayner, discussing Brexit and May's future outside her famous residence. On such a characteristically rainy London day, this patient feline had every right to be let in. But folks, this is not just any cat.

U.S. spy chiefs should publicly report on Khashoggi death: Senator
The reported finding was the most definitive link made yet to the de facto Saudi ruler's direct involvement and contradicts Saudi government assertions that he was not. Senate intelligence committee member Ron Wyden, in a statement to Reuters, called on U.S. spy chiefs to "come out and provide the American people and the Congress with a public assessment of who ordered the killing." Khashoggi, a U.S.-based Washington Post columnist who was a critic of the Saudi government, was murdered on Oct. 2 at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul where he went to collect documents needed for a planned marriage. After offering contradictory explanations for Khashoggi's disappearance, Riyadh said last week that Khashoggi was killed and his body dismembered when "negotiations" to convince him to return to Saudi Arabia failed.

Trump administration calls U.S. judge's asylum ruling 'absurd'
Trump cited an overwhelmed immigration system for his recent proclamation that officials will only process asylum claims for migrants who present themselves at an official entry point along the U.S.-Mexico frontier. The Justice Department on Tuesday said it was "absurd" that Tigar allowed civil rights groups to have the ability "to stop the entire federal government from acting so that illegal aliens can receive a government benefit to which they are not entitled." The asylum ruling came as thousands of Central Americans, including a large number of children, are traveling in caravans toward the U.S. border to escape violence and poverty at home. "We look forward to continuing to defend the Executive Branch's legitimate and well-reasoned exercise of its authority to address the crisis at our southern border," the Justice Department said.

Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn faces being fired this week after being arrested in Japan over allegations of financial misconduct, the firm said Monday, in a stunning fall from grace for one of the world's best-known businessmen. Ghosn's arrest and his likely dismissal from Nissan, as well as possibly from Mitsubishi and Renault, sent shockwaves through the auto industry, where he is a towering figure, credited with turning around several major manufacturers. Nissan's board will meet Thursday to decide his fate, and Mitsubishi said it would propose he be dismissed as chairman "promptly." Renault said its board would meet "shortly", after Ghosn was detained over allegations including underreporting his income.

Some California wildfire victims may never be found: searcher
(Editor's Note: Please be advised this story contains details that may upset some readers) By Andrew Hay (Reuters) - Searchers looking for the remains of victims of the wildfire that destroyed the Northern California town of Paradise said some bodies may never be found because of the intensity of the blaze. "We have been told we're to look as hard as we can, but it's still possible we may not be able to find something left of someone," said Trish Moutard, a volunteer with the California Rescue Dog Association, who may undertake a second deployment to Paradise on Tuesday with her dog IC. "If the fire stayed long enough and burned hot enough, the bones could, at a minimum, be fragmented down to such a small amount that we couldn't see them, and it's possible that even the dogs might not be able to detect them." Authorities have been urging residents to look at the missing persons list so they can remove people now known to be safe or whose names are duplicated, said Miranda Bowersox, a spokeswoman for the Butte County Sheriff's Office.

NASA's 2020 rover will land in an ancient, dried-up lakebed to hunt for past life on Mars
NASA's next car-sized rover will plummet through the thin Martian atmosphere and softly land on the floor of a dried-up lakebed, the space agency announced Monday. When the robot arrives on Mars about 8 months after its launch in 2020, NASA will endeavor to land the six-wheeled rover in the Jezero Crater, a 30 mile-wide bowl about 1,640 feet deep. It's believed to have once held an 800-foot deep lake some 3.5 billion years ago.  The space agency hopes to accomplish a number of things during the at least two-year mission. But the first science directive is to "determine whether life ever arose on Mars." Indeed, today Mars is extremely unlikely to harbor any life — on the surface, at least. It's a heavily irradiated, dry, frigid desert, with no liquid water. "But it wasn't always that way," Ken Farley, the Mars 2020 project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a press call.  Ancient water canals leading out of the Jezero Crater.Image: NASA Mars Reconnaissance OrbiterNASA scientists suspect Mars was once a blue world, like Earth. And as bodies of water on Earth are teeming with life, NASA wants to scour the Jezero lakebed for signs that past microbial life could have survived there, or perhaps clear signs of long-dead life itself.  "All things point to the idea that we should be looking to ancient Mars for a surface-habitable enviro

Netanyahu avoids early elections for now after minister's about-face
Education Minister Naftali Bennett's U-turn surprised many pundits who had predicted the leader of the far-right Jewish Home party would quit in protest after Netanyahu rejected his demand to be named defense minister and assumed the post himself. Outflanking Netanyahu on the right, Lieberman, an ultranationalist, lashed out in his resignation announcement at the government's acceptance of a ceasefire with Gaza's dominant armed group, Hamas, amid a surge in cross-border violence "You win some, you lose some," Bennett said in a televised address, shrugging off Netanyahu's rejection of his bid for the defense post, long regarded in Israel as its second most important cabinet portfolio. Had Bennett pulled his party out of the weakened coalition, as Jewish Home officials had threatened, Netanyahu would have been left with a minority government, making an election likely ahead of a national ballot that is not due until November 2019.

The Houthis' decision to halt missile attacks could be a turning point in peace efforts as it ends a direct threat to Saudi Arabia. International pressure has mounted on Yemen's warring parties to end the war that has killed more than 10,000 people and pushed the country to the verge of starvation. The move from the Houthi group came after the coalition ordered a halt in its offensive against Yemen's main port city Hodeidah, which has become the focus of the war.

Washington Post Publisher Blasts Trump's Response to Khashoggi Murder
The publisher of the Washington Post blasted President Trump's response to the Saudi-state-sponsored assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday. "President Trump's response to the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a betrayal of long-established American values of respect for human rights and the expectation of trust and honesty in our strategic relationships," publisher Fred Ryan said in a statement released Tuesday. Ryan's reaction came just hours after Trump released a statement indicating he would not pursue further punitive measures against Saudi Arabia beyond the sanctions imposed earlier this month against 17 individuals believed to have been involved in Khashoggi's assassination at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Star to fallen idol: The Japanese rise and fall of Carlos Ghosn
Carlos Ghosn's status as an outsider in Japan brought him huge success, as his maverick style blew a gale through a musty corporate world, but his disregard of business norms may ultimately prove his undoing. The companies he rescued -- Nissan and Mitsubishi -- looked set to dump him as chairman and his legacy as a boardroom saviour lay in tatters. "Ghosn is likely the most successful foreign chairman in Japan," said Kosuke Sato, a senior economist at the Japan Research Institute.

Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S. Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum.

Mike Lee Accuses Tom Cotton of Spreading ‘Fake News' on Criminal-Justice-Reform Bill
In a Monday tweet, Senator Mike Lee of Utah lambasted his Republican colleague, Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, for spreading "fake news" about the bipartisan criminal-justice-reform bill currently making its way through Congress. Cotton has maintained his opposition to the First Step Act — a sweeping package of criminal-justice reforms designed to reduce incarceration rates and recidivism — despite mounting bipartisan support. In defending his opposition on Twitter Monday, Cotton accused the bill's proponents of trying to push it through Congress without allowing time for an adequate review of its contents.

Airbnb removes listings in West Bank settlements
Home-renting company Airbnb Inc said on Monday that it would remove listings in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, enclaves that most world powers consider illegal for taking up land where Palestinians seek statehood. "We concluded that we should remove listings in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank that are at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians," a statement on the Airbnb website said. "Our hope is that someday sooner rather than later, a framework is put in place where the entire global community is aligned so there will be a resolution to this historic conflict and a clear path forward for everybody to follow." An Airbnb spokesman said the decision, affecting some 200 listings, would take effect in the days ahead. There was no immediate response from the government of Israel, which captured the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war, nor from Palestinian authorities. Some 500,000 Israelis live in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, areas that are also home to more than 2.6 million Palestinians. Oded Revivi, mayor of the West Bank settlement of Efrat and a representative of the umbrella settler council Yesha, described the Airbnb decision as contrary to its mission, as stated on the website, of "help(ing) to bring people together in as many places as possible around the world". "When they make such a decision, they get involved with politics, which ... is going to defeat the actual purpose of the entreprise itself,&q

In Mississippi U.S. Senate race, a 'hanging' remark spurs Democrats
The U.S. Senate race between appointed Republican incumbent Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy, a black former congressman and U.S. agriculture secretary, will test the power of the black vote and the viability of Democrats in a region where Republicans have dominated for decades. Republicans will hold a Senate majority even if Hyde-Smith loses and Democrats will control the House of Representatives. Espy, 64, is a heavy underdog in the Deep South state, which has not elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1982.

Daily Digit: Majority of Americans believe abortion should be legal
Daily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we're looking at abortions and the right to choose. In 1973, the Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion in the U.S. According to a new study by Pew Research Center, nearly 60% of Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases. Unsurprisingly, the views about this issue vary widely between the political parties. Among the general public, the study shows there's no significant difference in opinion between men and women. But support varies by race, with whites and blacks more accepting than members of Hispanic groups. And support is higher among individuals with higher education. Do you think abortion should be legal?
