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.

Correction: Shootings-Newspaper-The Latest story
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — In a June 28 story about an attack at a newspaper in Annapolis, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the suspect arrested in the shooting had mutilated his fingers in an apparent attempt to make it harder for police to identify him. That report was based on initial information given to law enforcement authorities, which has since been corrected. While the suspect was identified using facial recognition technology, his fingers were not mutilated.

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.

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,

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.

Antonio Halili was hit in the chest by a single shot fired from a distance, unleashing chaotic scenes during the weekly flag raising ceremony at the town hall in Tanauan, south of Manila. In the moments that followed, terrified onlookers screamed and the mayor's security details opened fire, video of the scene showed. However, the shooter managed to escape and Halili was pronounced dead at hospital. Antonio Halili, pictured praying in his office in July 2016, was hit in the chest by a single shot fired from a distance Credit: Bullit Marquez/AP Town police chief Renato Mercado told AFP the shot was fired from about 150 metres (490 feet) away. "The distance from the position was extraordinary. It could not be done by an ordinary person. His skill can be compared to a trained sniper," he told AFP.

Angela Merkel on brink as interior minister Seehofer says he will resign over migrant deal
Germany's interior minister dramatically announced plans to resign on Sunday night, after a heated showdown with chancellor Angela Merkel over migration. Horst Seehofer, Germany's Interior Minister and leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU), said on Sunday evening that he wanted to resign from all offices, after hours of heated talks with his party.  Mr Seehofer said the conflict with Mrs Merkel over migration was affecting the "credibility" of his role as party leader. He also slammed the migration deal Mrs Merkel secured with her EU counterparts last week as "ineffective".  In the early hours of Monday morning, after talks had dragged on and missed several deadlines, Mr Seehofer said that he would make a final decision after one last conversation with Mrs Merkel. The meeting on Monday afternoon in Berlin will focus on migration and border control. "We'll have more talks today with the CDU in Berlin with the hope that we can come to an agreement. After that, then we will see," he said.  Mr Seehofer has been a fierce critic of Mrs Merkel and in particular her decision to open Germany's doors to over 1 million migrants in 2015. With that in mind his resignation may be welcome news to the chancellor. However it is yet to be seen who his replacement would be and many in his party share his tough stance on immigration.  Two weeks ago Mr Seehofer gave Mrs Merkel an ultimatum to find a European solution to irregular migration by this Sunday

Kim Jong-un 'blasts workers at factories for not working hard enough'
Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, has lambasted workers at two textile factories for not working hard enough, failing to take care of their buildings and moaning about shortages of money and materials, according to state-run media. Mr Kim expressed his fury at the failing of workers at two factories in the city of Sinuiju, close to the border with China, the Korean Central News Agency reported on Monday.  At the Sinuiju Textile Mill, Mr Kim declared that the factory and its workers have supported the nation's light industry sector since it was established in the 1950s - before condemning its present-day workforce for failing to live up to that "proud tradition".  Instead of complaining about a lack of funds and equipment, the workers should put more effort into modernising their facilities by themselves. He added that the employees needed to increase their productivity. Kim Jong-Un visits the Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill Credit: AFP   On a subsequent visit to another nearby textile factory, Mr Kim criticised the staff for not making repairs to their crumbling buildings, saying the "precious" facilities looked more like a stable.  Management of the two facilities appear to have got off lightly, however, as Mr Kim is notorious for a short temper and draconian punishments for those that displease him.  Kim Jong-un inspects the Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill Credit: AFP In May 2015, the North Korean leader flew into a rage during a visit to the Taedonggang Terrapin Farm, which had been built on th

The latest gruesome incident saw eight men set upon in Dhule district, 330 kilometres (205 miles) from India's financial capital Mumbai in the western state of Maharashtra on Sunday.

Interior minister offers to resign, in blow to German coalition
By Jörn Poltz and Thomas Escritt MUNICH/BERLIN (Reuters) - German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer offered his resignation to party colleagues late on Sunday, party officials said, escalating a row over migration with Chancellor Angela Merkel that threatens her fragile government. Seehofer said he was ready to step down as minister and as chair of his Christian Social Union (CSU) at a meeting where his party's leadership was discussing whether to accept immigration proposals Merkel brought back from Brussels last week. The move makes the future of Merkel's government even more uncertain, since her Christian Democrats party (CDU) relies on the Bavarian conservative CSU to maintain power through a coalition formed three months ago to end a political vacuum.

Merkel's coalition on the brink over migration stand-off
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's governing coalition was at risk of collapse Sunday as her conservative allies rejected an EU-wide deal she struck last week to reduce migration, escalating a crisis that has poisoned the country's politics for weeks. Merkel's centre-right CDU and their hardline Bavarian CSU allies gathered at separate meetings in Berlin and Munich during the afternoon to mull their next moves, with CSU leader and interior minister Horst Seehofer expected to announce either a compromise or open defiance later Sunday. Seehofer complained to fellow party bosses that he had endured a "conversation with no effect" with the chancellor on Saturday about the EU summit results, sources told AFP.
