    AP sources: Rosenstein spoke of possible secret Trump taping

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording President Donald Trump last year as law enforcement agencies grew increasingly unnerved about chaos in the White House, according to people familiar with the exchange. One person who was present at the time said Rosenstein was just being sarcastic. Trump spoke later Friday of a "lingering stench" at the Justice Department, though he didn't name names.

    B.C. premier apologizes for removal of 1950s totem pole at Canada-U.S. border

    Three First Nations in British Columbia gathered Friday to raise a restored replica totem pole at a Canada-U.S. border crossing — a decade after it was removed by the province without notice. The Semiahmoo, Kwakwaka'wakw and Haida nations say the pole symbolizing the grizzly bear was raised near the Peace Arch crossing in the 1950s but taken down without consultation in 2008 to make way for a new tourism centre. Members of the three nations held a ceremony at Peace Arch Provincial Park and said the removal of the pole was undignified and ignored their traditions.

    Guatemalan gets 16 years in crash that killed Colts player

    A man from Guatemala living illegally in the U.S. was sentenced Friday to the maximum of 16 years in prison for a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver. A Marion County judge sentenced Manuel Orrego-Savala after hearing emotional testimony from Jackson's mother and the widow of Jeffrey Monroe, the 54-year-old driver Jackson had hired from the ride-sharing service the night of the deadly February crash. Investigators said the twice-deported Orrego-Savala had a blood-alcohol content of 0.19 — nearly 2 1/2 times Indiana's legal limit — when his truck crashed into Jackson and Monroe on Feb. 4 along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis.

    The studies by repair firm iFixit https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iPhone+XS++and+XS+Max+Teardown/113021 and chip analysis firm TechInsights https://w2.techinsights.com/l/4202/2018-09-21/276cjx, published this week, are among the first detailed teardowns of the phones, which reviews suggested were a subtle upgrade from the tenth anniversary iPhone X. Supplying parts for Apple's iPhones is considered a coup for chipmakers and other manufacturers. While Apple publishes a broad list of suppliers each year, it does not disclose which companies make which components and insists its suppliers keep quiet. What is found in one iPhone may not be found in others.

    Ontario students walk out of class to protest sex-ed curriculum changes

    Students across Ontario walked out of class on Friday to protest the provincial government's decision to repeal a modernized version of the sex-ed curriculum. The walkouts — called "We the students do not consent" — took place in schools from Niagara Falls to Ottawa and saw students gather outdoors, hoist handwritten signs and chant about the need for relevant sexual education. The province's Progressive Conservative government announced in July that it would scrap the modernized sex-ed curriculum brought in by the previous Liberal regime in 2015.

    British actor Tom Hardy said on Friday he believes his new superhero movie "Venom" remains faithful to the Marvel Comics books in its portrayal of an investigative journalist whose body becomes the host for an alien with enhanced powers. Hardy, who previously starred in "Dunkirk" and "Mad Max: Fury Road," plays the sharp-toothed title character and his human alter-ego, reporter Eddie Brock. "The depiction of Venom, I think, has been extremely faithful to the comics," Hardy said at a press conference in Moscow to promote the movie.

Meripet and her husband left the kids with their grandmother at home in China when they went to nurse Meripet's sick father in Turkey. Then, her mother-in-law was also taken prisoner, and Meripet learned from a friend that her 3- to 8-year-olds had been placed in a de facto orphanage in the Xinjiang region, under the care of the state that broke up her family.
