Is the "blue wave" turning purple? Republican-affiliated voters have outpaced Democratic-affiliated voters in early voting in seven closely watched states, according to data provided by TargetSmart and independently analyzed by the NBC News Data Analytics Lab.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has officially opened the world's longest sea crossing bridge, nine years after construction first began. Including its access roads, the bridge spans 55km (34 miles) and connects Hong Kong to Macau and the mainland Chinese city of Zhuhai. The bridge has cost about $20bn (£15.3bn) and is designed to withstand earthquakes and typhoons. It was built using 400,000 tonnes of steel, enough to build 60 Eiffel Towers. Read more
Tweets by two academics in October 2018 shed light on legislative efforts in North Carolina to target non-white voters, as documented by court excerpts they shared which were distributed widely online. On 15 October 2018, Sarah Damaske, an associate professor of labor and employment relations at Penn State University, shared a tweet from University of Chicago professor Harold Pollak linking to a federal court decision regarding the state's "voter ID" law, known as House Bill 589 or SL 2013-381:
Defining gender as a condition determined strictly by a person's genitals is based on a notion that doctors and scientists abandoned long ago as oversimplified and often medically meaningless. Researchers who have studied gender issues and provided health care to people who do not fit the typical M/F pigeonholes said that the Trump administration's latest plan to define gender goes beyond the limits of scientific knowledge. "The idea that a person's sex is determined by their anatomy at birth is not true, and we've known that it's not true for decades," said Dr. Joshua D. Safer, an endocrinologist and executive director of the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai Health System in New York. He is also president of the United States Professional Association of Transgender Health.

If this is what MAGA is all about it's nothing but a mockery of what makes America great.
Police in New York have been told to stop using some of their body-worn cameras after one of them exploded. On Saturday, a night officer noticed smoke coming out of their camera and took it off. It then exploded, the NYPD said in a statement. It ordered officers to stop using the Vievu LE-5 camera out of "an abundance of caution". The force has about 3,000 of these cameras. Read more
He cant run away from the label anymore. He is a Self described Nationalist.
In this artist's representation, an electron travels between two lasers in an experiment. The electron is spinning about its axis as a cloud of other subatomic particles are constantly emitted and reabsorbed. Some theories in particle physics predict particles, as yet undetected, that would cause the cloud to appear very slightly pear shaped when seen from a distance. With the support of the National Science Foundation, ACME researchers created an experiment setup look at that shape with extreme precision. To the limits of their experiment, they saw a perfectly round sphere, implying that certain types of new particles, if they exist at all, have properties different from those theorists expected.

President Trump on Monday sharply intensified a Republican campaign to frame the midterm elections as a battle over immigration and race, issuing a dark and factually baseless warning that "unknown Middle Easterners" were marching toward the American border with Mexico.
Beloved TV host Bob Barker was hospitalized Monday due to back pain. Paramedics arrived at Barker's Hollywood Hills home early Monday afternoon and transported the 94-year-old to Cedars Sinai Hospital.

The Laxalt family oppose the election of Adam Laxalt for governor of Nevada for a multitude of reasons.
For starters he's dishonest as the day is long.
Just when you figured you had sorted out all the drama resulting from Saturday night's brawl between members of the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets that left Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul suspended for multiple games, we learn that the Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman was also prominently involved, losing his mind from his front-row seat and earning himself an ejection.

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) will enable astrophysicists to observe gravitational waves emitted by black holes as they collide with or capture other black holes. LISA will consist of three spacecraft orbiting the sun in a constant triangle formation. Gravitational waves passing through will distort the sides of the triangle slightly, and these minimal distortions can be detected by laser beams connecting the spacecraft. LISA could therefore add a new sense to scientists' perception of the universe and enable them to study phenomena invisible in different light spectra. Read more
President Donald Trump's critics have spent the past 17 months anticipating what some expect will be among the most thrilling events of their lives: special counsel Robert Mueller's final report on Russian 2016 election interference. They may be in for a disappointment. That's the word POLITICO got from defense lawyers working on the Russia probe and more than 15 former government officials with investigation experience spanning Watergate to the 2016 election case. The public, they say, shouldn't expect a comprehensive and presidency-wrecking account of Kremlin meddling and alleged obstruction of justice by Trump -- not to mention an explanation of the myriad subplots that have bedeviled lawmakers, journalists and amateur Mueller sleuths.
