    Turkey accused Germany on Friday of scandalous behavior in cancelling rallies of Turkish citizens in two German towns due to be addressed by Turkish ministers and said Berlin provided a "shelter" for people committing crimes against his country. The comments by Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag, who had been scheduled to address a meeting in the southwestern town of Gaggenau until it was canceled on Thursday, reflected a broader souring of relations between the two NATO allies. "Let them look back at their history," Bozdag said in a speech suggesting a deeper rooted chauvinism in Berlin. "We see the old illnesses...

    The former Miss Universe at the center of a bitter exchange in Monday's presidential debate was accused of aiding a would-be murderer and threatening to kill a judge, it has emerged. Alicia Machado was named by Hillary Clinton as having been shamed for her weight in 1996 by Donald Trump, when she was Miss Universe and he bought the beauty contest, by being called 'Miss Piggy' when she gained weight. The then Miss Venezuela was photographed with Trump at a gym as he spoke about how she 'loves to eat', and she also claimed he mocked her Latino accent, calling...
  • New W.H. campus sexual assault guidelines: Still pretty terrible, but a step in the right direction

    President Obama’s sexual assault task force marked its one-year anniversary last week, and released new guidelines for colleges to develop with law enforcement.Just asking colleges and universities to work with local law enforcement when dealing with claims of sexual assault is a step in the right direction, as the American justice system is far more qualified to handle accusations than schools. Still, as I’ve written before, there is a role for colleges to play when it comes to handling sexual assault — namely as a support service for accusers as they go through the legal system.But the new guidelines, called...

    Nancy Cordes, CBS: As you know, your opponent recently accused you of waging a campaign filled with anger and hate. You told Entertainment Tonight that anyone who attends your rallies can see that they are not angry or hate-filled affairs. But in recent weeks, your campaign has suggested repeatedly - without proof - that Mr. Romney might be hiding something in his tax returns. They have suggested that Mr. Romney might be a felon for the way that he handed over power of Bain Capital. And your campaign and the White House have declined to condemn an ad by one...

    The Obama campaign opened up a new line of attack on Mitt Romney Friday, suggesting that as commander-in-chief Romney might not have made the same decision to order an attack by U.S. forces to kill terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden that President Obama did. In a new web video titled “One Chance,” the Obama team features former President Bill Clinton praising Obama for deciding to launch the strike last year. “Why path would Mitt Romney have taken?” the clip asks. But four years ago this April, the Obama campaign criticized Democratic rival Hillary Clinton

    Ferry Building merchants and managers are fed up with the mayhem that has come with the nearby Occupy SF encampment. A spike in shoplifting, break-ins and reports of abandoned human waste — and a reported drop in foot traffic — has management fuming about the Justin Herman Plaza encampment. There even are reports of occupiers using the building’s restrooms as washrooms — with folks taking sponge baths from toilets. And last Monday, eight men were allegedly escorted out of the building after they attempted to use the bathrooms wearing nothing but their boxer shorts. Property manager Jane Connors has written...

    Vittorio Vincent Valdez, a 27-year-old Half Moon Bay man, appeared in court last week for allegedly beating his grandmother for driving too slowly. According to the San Mateo County district attorney’s office, Valdez’s 82-year-old, 105-pound grandmother was driving him from Palo Alto to Half Moon Bay in her BMW on Sept. 24. Turns out he needed the ride because his license had been suspended due to a citation for driving under the influence. Shortly after reaching Half Moon Bay, Valdez allegedly started pounding on the dashboard and pushing his grandmother’s right leg down to get her to speed up. When...

    ORANGE COUNTY, Florida (NBC) -- A Florida firefighter has been fired and another has been demoted in connection with a road rage incident in Orange County. Fire officials said a video was released showing Orange County fire engineer David Jordan driving a 15-ton truck and tailgating a car, whose driver wouldn't move over, last May 1. Investigators said Jordan nearly hits the car several times, even though he has room to go around the car. The car then gets into the left turn lane, which investigators said, by law it should have pulled off on the right shoulder and stopped...

    Authorities in Crow Wing County are investigating possible voter fraud involving people with mental disabilities. An affidavit, filed Monday by Brainerd resident Montgomery Jensen, claims a large group of mentally handicapped people were told whom to vote for by mental health staff members and that staff filled out the ballots themselves without the disabled voters close by. Jensen said he came to the Crow Wing County Auditor's Office in Brainerd at approximately 4:40 p.m. Friday to fill out an absentee ballot, because he wouldn't have time to vote there on Nov. 2.

    A U.S. terror alert issued this week about al-Qaida plots to attack targets in western Europe was politically motivated and not based on credible new information, senior Pakistani diplomats and European intelligence officials have told the Guardian. The non-specific US warning, which despite its vagueness led Britain, France and other countries to raise their overseas terror alert levels, was an attempt to justify a recent escalation in US drone and helicopter attacks inside Pakistan that have "set the country on fire", said Wajid Shamsul Hasan, the high commissioner to Britain.

    Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street powerhouse, has been accused of defrauding investors by America's financial regulator. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) alleges that Goldman failed to disclose conflicts of interest. The claims concern Goldman's marketing of sub-prime mortgage investments just as the US housing market faltered. Goldman rejected the SEC's allegations, saying that it would "vigorously" defend its reputation. News that the SEC was pressing civil fraud charges against Goldman and one of its London-based vice presidents, Fabrice Tourre, sent shares in the investment bank tumbling 12%. The SEC says Goldman failed to disclose "vital information" that one of...
