Northern California chokes on toxic air as Trump set to visit
Schools and tourist attractions across the San Francisco Bay Area were shut Friday and residents were urged to stay indoors as smoke from California's deadliest wildfire -- a three-hour drive away -- produced air quality levels worse than in South Asia's polluted megacities. The closures came as President Donald Trump was set to visit the western state Saturday to survey the damage and meet victims of the giant Camp Fire that has devoured an area roughly the size of Chicago since it broke out last week, killing at least 63 people. In an interview with Fox News ahead of his visit, Trump doubled-down on his earlier claim that mismanagement of Califonia's forests was to blame for the fires.

California wildfires: Number of missing leaps to 631 as death toll rises to 66 and Trump announces visit
At least 63 people are confirmed to have died in a catastrophic wildfire in northern California while a further 631 are still missing, officials said. Authorities attributed the high death toll from the so-called Camp Fire, which erupted last Thursday in the drought-parched Sierra foothills 175 miles north of San Francisco, in part to the staggering speed with which the wind-whipped flames raced with little warning through Paradise, a town of 27,000. Nearly 12,000 homes and buildings, including most of the town, were incinerated hours after the blaze erupted, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) has said.

Indonesian jet crash victim's family sues Boeing
The family of an Indonesian man killed in a Lion Air jet crash is suing Boeing, alleging that the accident may have been caused by a problem with the flight-control system in its newest 737 plane. The father of Rio Nanda Pratama filed the lawsuit Wednesday in the US state of Illinois, where the plane manufacturer is headquartered, over the death of the young doctor who was to have married his high-school sweetheart this week. Pratama's fiance Intan Syari, 26, has made headlines after she posed alone for photos in a wedding gown that she was to have worn at the couple's nuptials in Indonesia.

California presses search for fire victims, number of missing soars
Remains of at least 63 people have been recovered so far in and around the Sierra foothills hamlet of Paradise, which was home to nearly 27,000 residents before the town was largely incinerated by the deadly Camp Fire on the night of Nov. 8. More than a week later, firefighters have managed to carve containment lines around 45 percent of the blaze's perimeter, up from 35 percent a day earlier, even as the burned landscape grew slightly to 142,000 acres (57,000 hectares). More than 11,000 evacuees were being housed in 14 emergency shelters set up in churches, schools and community centers around the region, American Red Cross spokeswoman Greta Gustafson said.

The sad, shocking story behind the Jonestown massacre 40 years later
40 years ago, on Nov. 18, 1978, self-styled holy man, Jim Jones, oversaw the mass slaughter of nearly 900 members of his church or, more accurately, cult — the Peoples Temple, marking the terrifying end to their experiment in building a utopian community in the South American jungles. One reason why the horror of that event hasn't faded four decades later is because Jones recorded himself preaching to his congregation as they died, entreating them to drink poison and ensuring that the colony's large population of children consumed it as well. Flash-forward to the present day, and Jonestown has become the go-to example when both professional and armchair analysts discuss the madness of crowds or single-minded devotion to a religious or political leader.

Ms DeVos has wants to add protections for those accused and limit situations in which schools would be required by law to investigate complaints brought forward by alleged victims, changes she said will treat both sides fairly. The requirements for investigation include only incidents which occurred on the universities' campuses or property under the school's authority and in those cases, only if the incident is reported to certain officials.
