President Barack Obama arrived in East Africa with no big American aid packages, no ramped up U.S. military resources for fighting terror groups and no new initiatives with billions in government backing. Instead, he brought a frank message on democracy, corruption and security that could perhaps be delivered only by a Western leader viewed in Africa as a local son: http://apne.ws/1D6UN0m

The State Department said that labor abuses in the Southeast Asian country's seafood sector are persistent, abusive and largely ignored by the government. Those abuses have been widely documented in a series of stories this year by The Associated Press which tracked the supply chains of major U.S. retailers to Thai processors selling slave-caught seafood.
BANGKOK (AP) — Thai authorities are upset about being blacklisted by the U.S. for the second year in a row for failing to do enough to combat modern-day slavery. The State Department said Monday that labor abuses in the…

Boston's bid to host the 2024 Olympics was undercut by its own mayor, its skeptical public and, finally, leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee, who were tired of the city's ever-changing blueprint. Next, it may be time to see if there's more Olympic love in Los Angeles. http://apne.ws/1U2SVtF

The International Olympic Committee is the problem, NOT Boston. Quite a few cities have withdrawn interest because the cost of hosting the games has become completely absurd. The IOC expects the host city to build new venues, housing, etc and shoulder the financial burden, while it profits from sponsorship and licensing. I hope no other cities will bid, which may force much need reform inside the corrupt IOC.

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — From space, the fishing boats are just little white specks floating in a vast stretch of blue water off Papua New Guinea. But zoom in and there's the critical evidence: Two trawlers loading slave-caught…

The act is monumental in scope, intended to protect people with disabilities from discrimination and enable them to participate fully in the workforce and their communities. Its protections, which now cover an estimated 55 million Americans, extend to five key areas: employment, state and local government facilities and services, public accommodations, telecommunications, and transportation.

With dozens of such camps around the country, hundreds of students have gone through the training though it is impossible to say how many went on to fight the Sunni extremists since those who do so go independently. This summer, The Associated Press saw over a dozen armed boys on the front line in western Anbar province, including some as young as 10.
BAGHDAD (AP) — In the steamy Baghdad night, sweat poured down the faces of the Iraqi teens as they marched around a school courtyard, training for battle against the Islamic State group. This is summer camp in Iraq, set…

Texas county's troubling tradition of racial strife has resurfaced in the days since a black woman named Sandra Bland died in the county jail after a traffic stop by a white state trooper. Video of the confrontational stop ignited long-simmering passions and caused some blacks to raise their guard around law enforcement in Waller County and the county seat of Hempstead, once known as "Six Shooter Junction" because of white supremacist violence in the 1800s.

Despite obvious and public signs of mental illness _ most importantly, a Georgia judge's order committing him to mental health treatment against his will as a danger to himself and others in 2008 _ John Russell Houser was able to walk into an Alabama pawn shop six years later and buy a .40-caliber handgun.
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — John Russell Houser was deeply troubled long before he shot 11 people in a movie theater in Louisiana, but decades of mental problems didn't keep him from buying the handgun he used. Despite obvious…

+Donna F I've been all over the western half of this country. Americans are the weirdest most contradictory ppl. You're unpredictable. A nation of ppl with double standards, you say you believe one thing & do another. You have forgotten what made you strong. And the tailgating. Why does everyone speed & tailgate? I like to go fast but I don't drive stupid. Never seen so many bad drivers outside of an Asian or Indian country. I think crazy ppl from all over the world have been coming here a long time & met other crazies & had crazy children. And now you, as a nation, are seeing where buying weapons for crazies leads.
