    Me Too: Alyssa Milano elevates Harvey Weinstein conversation

    Alyssa Milano was in bed with her two young children when a friend of a friend on Facebook suggested something that struck her as a great way to elevate the Harvey Weinstein conversation. By Monday night, more than 53,000 people had left comments and thousands of women had declared "Me Too," sharing their stories of rape, sexual assault and harassment across social media, including some for the first time. Some left it at, simply: "Me Too," without explanation, and a small contingent of men have posted: "I Have," noting shock at the groundswell and remorse for their own past misdeeds Milano said the idea was to elevate the Harvey Weinstein conversation, placing the emphasis on victims rather than perpetrators and offering a glimpse into the number of women who continue to be victimized.

    US-backed forces celebrate fall of IS 'capital,' Raqqa

    U.S.-backed Syrian forces celebrated in the devastated streets of Raqqa on Tuesday after gaining control of the northern city that once was the heart of the Islamic State's self-styled caliphate, dealing a major defeat to the extremist group that has seen its territory shrink ever smaller since summer. Militants took over the vibrant metropolis on the Euphrates River in 2014, transforming it into the epicenter of their brutal rule, where opponents were beheaded and terror plots hatched. It took thousands of bombs dropped by the U.S.-led coalition and more than four months of grueling house-to-house battles for the Syrian Democratic Forces to recapture Raqqa, marking a new chapter in the fight against the group whose once vast territory has been reduced to a handful of towns in Syria and Iraq.

    A Montreal woman flew to Peru on Tuesday to look for her son, who she said nobody has heard from since he boarded a bus to go on a short trek more than two weeks ago. Alisa Clamen said her son Jesse Galganov, 22, left Montreal last month for what was supposed to be an eight-month backpacking trip through South America and Southeast Asia, but he only got as far as Peru. Galganov spent a few days in Lima before telling her that he'd be out of communication for a few days on Sept. 28, because he was planning on trekking the Santa Cruz trail, a 50-kilometre hike through the Cordillera Blanca mountains, part of the Andes.
