    ABC News ^ | July 7, 2020 | Molly Nagle and John Verhovek
    With the November election fewer than four months away and the number of coronavirus cases again surging in the United States, former vice president Joe Biden is preparing for a range of realities when it comes to dealing with the virus if he is elected president, according to an official. "I would say the vice president and the team are working through multiple scenarios. One of those scenarios would involve the existence of a vaccine, in which case, one of the biggest tasks would be the broad-based manufacture and equitable distribution of that vaccine which is an enormous logistical challenge,"...

    Actress and activist Mia Farrow reacted to President Trump’s move to criminalize animal cruelty on Tuesday by resurfacing a photo of his eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, posing with a dead leopard as part of a hunt in Zimbabwe that took place nearly a decade ago. The president on Tuesday signed H.R. 724, otherwise known as the Protect Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT). It criminalizes animal torture, specifically “crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating and impaling live animals, and other abuses such as sexually exploiting them,” according to the Humane Society.

    BUTLER COUNTY — Stevie Rose never met her uncle, Roger Lee Woods, but through the letters he mailed to his father, she understood what was going through his mind during the Korean War. Twice in his hand-written letters, Woods asked about his sister, JoAnn, and the baby she was carrying. That girl was Rose, who was born in April 1950, one month after one of the letters arrived. “That’s when I realized I was part of this story,” she said. Army Pfc. Woods, a native of Hamilton County, was last seen on July 29, 1950. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency...

    In a wide-ranging speech that included swipes at fellow Republicans, including President Donald Trump, outgoing Rep. Mia Love on Monday called her successor in Congress a "wolf in sheep's clothing." Speaking from a teleprompter at the Utah GOP headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City surrounded by her family, Love confirmed she called Rep.-elect Ben McAdams, D-Utah, to congratulate him on winning the 4th Congressional District race.

    Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams claimed victory over Republican Rep. Mia Love Monday after new Salt Lake County results showed her trailing by 739 votes in the 4th Congressional District race. "I'm eager to get to work," McAdams said at a hastily called news conference held at his Millcreek campaign headquarters. "We are confident there is no way Rep. Love will retake the lead." He said he has not yet tried to contact the two-term congresswoman. "I do want to give her the space," McAdams said, anticipating her campaign wanted time to review the numbers released early Monday...

    A judge dismissed a lawsuit Friday filed by Rep. Mia Love against Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen over how ballots in the tight 4th Congressional District race are being verified. But in new results released later Friday, Love took a 419 vote lead over Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams. Love has trailed McAdams in the 4th District race since election night Nov. 6. McAdams did gain 167 more votes than Love in Salt Lake County, but the two-term congresswoman added 1,588 more votes in Utah County, a conservative stronghold. She now has 129,006 votes to McAdams' 128,587...

    The United States did not give money to North Korea in exchange for the recovery and return of the remains of US soldiers, killed during the Korean War of 1950-1953, US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. "US code grants the secretary of defense the authority to reimburse the DPRK, or any other country, for expenses associated with the recovery and storage of remains. In this instance, North Korea did not ask for money and no money was exchanged," US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told the CNN broadcaster. On Friday, a US airplane carried the remains of US soldiers...

    SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea is expected to hand over the remains of a number of U.S. service members who were killed during the Korean War on Friday, the 65th anniversary of the armistice that ended the fighting, according to reports in South Korean media. If the exchange happens, it would mean that one part of the agreement reached between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12 had been partially fulfilled - albeit at a slower time frame than many had anticipated. Yonhap News agency reported on Thursday that North Korea...

    North Korea will return the remains of about 50 Americans killed during the Korean War over the next two weeks, the first set of repatriations since the recent summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, a report says. A senior U.S. defense official said on Tuesday that the move will take place within two weeks, though the exact timing and number of those being returned remain uncertain, according to a Reuters report. The development comes after a two-day meeting between U.S. and North Korean officials at the Demilitarized Zone. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at the beginning of...

    I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention. But, given the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit. I was present for everything that transpired in our house before, during, and after the alleged event. Now that the public hysteria of earlier this year has died down a little and I have some hope that the truth can get a fair hearing, I want to share my story.

    The United States and North Korea have agreed to search for the remains of 5,300 U.S. soldiers who died in the Korean War and whose bodies were never recovered, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement Sunday. The statement was issued after “the first general officer-level talks” between the two countries since 2009. “Today’s talks were productive and cooperative and resulted in firm commitments,” Pompeo said. Officials will hold further meetings Monday “to coordinate the next steps, including the transfer of remains already collected,” he said. The weekend talks were held in the demilitarized zone between North and...

    U.S. military officials were left in the lurch last Thursday when North Korean representatives simply failed to show up for a meeting on recovering and repatriating the remains of the U.S. troops killed during the Korean War, the Washington Post reports. According to the Post, officials from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency and representatives from United Nations Command were left waiting in the Joint Security Area of the Korean Peninsula’s demilitarized zone on July 12, although it is unclear why the North Korean counterparts failed to attend. “We were ready,” according to one anonymous official who spoke to the Post....
