Meltdown: 12 reasons why this was Hillary Clinton’s worst week ever

Kingston: Canada says emotional farewell to The Tragically Hip

Concert-goers treated the 30-song show as a landmark moment in Canadian history: Giant flags made their way through the crowd during the performance, and before the concert began, the audience spontaneously began singing 'O Canada', with nearly everyone rising from their seats.

Kingston abuzz as The Tragically Hip return with an inimitable goodbye

You couldn't walk 10 feet without having a friendly, but urgent media microphone thrust at you in downtown Kingston this afternoon. The line-ups at t-shirt booths were hours-long. Every radio in town is tuned to a station playing The Tragically Hip on Tragically Hip Day. You get the picture. And plenty of pictures being taken, as you see above. Rumours abound. It was broadcast live worldwide by the CBC and more than 25,000 filled Kingston's Market Square for every last note, paying homage to the hometown band made good. The pictures above were taken about 3 hours apart, same location.

Louisiana: Flood victims to Trump: "We knew you would be here"

Donald Trump and Mike Pence came to Louisiana to help, and they quickly got to work helping to distribute relief supplies to flood victims. They were warmly welcomed as people thanked them and asked for autographs. Neither President Obama or Hillary Clinton have come to help, and it's become a campaign issue.

Media that ripped Bush on Katrina ignores Obama on Louisiana flooding

President George W. Bush was torn to shreds in 2005 by mainstream media commentators for his initial response to Hurricane Katrina — yet President Obama’s much more detached response to the recent Louisiana floods has been met with resounding silence from those same outlets.

Photographs of Omran were widely shared on social media. An hour after his rescue, the building he had been in was completely collapsed. ~ Twitter

Youngstown: Trump calls for 'extreme' vetting to block extremists;
'We should admit only those who respect our constitution and values'

In a powerhouse speech at Youngstown State University in Youngstown, Ohio, Trump called for common sense to replace political correctness in major foreign policy speech. Speaking slowly and deliberately, the Republican Presidential nominee criticized his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama, claiming they "unleashed ISIS" with their policies in Iraq and Syria. He will make combatting terrorism, domestic and foreign, and creating a safe country, the government's prime areas of foreihn policy focus. Trump positioned the fight against ISIS as an ideological battle akin to the Cold War. He called for cyber warfare to hit propaganda efforts online. Trump said he aims to screen out ISIS sympathizers, people who support bigotry or people who believe Sharia law should supplant American law. One of his first moves will be set up a Presidential Commission on radical Islam which will include American muslims. It will develop guidelines for vetting immigrants and controlling borders. Guantanamo Bay will remain open and foreign combatants will be tried by military courts. Those aiding and abetting terrorists singly or through support networks will be prosecuted and/or deported. "To make America safe again we must work together again." His speech was met by chants of 'USA USA USA'.

Trump Doctrine: Will end U.S. 'nation building' aka foreign meddling;
Instead, 'foreign policy realism' to put bulls-eye on ISIS & other extremists

Politico: How to hack an election in 7 minutes

When Princeton professor Andrew Appel decided to hack into a voting machine, he bought one online. Clutching a screwdriver, he deftly wedged out the four ROM chips — they weren’t soldered into the circuit board, as sense might dictate—making it simple to replace them with one of his own: A version of modified firmware that could throw off the machine’s results, subtly altering the tally of votes, never to betray a hint to the voter. The attack was concluded in minutes. To mark the achievement, his student snapped a photo of Appel — oblong features, messy black locks and a salt-and-pepper beard—grinning for the camera, fists still on the circuit board, as if to look directly into the eyes of the American taxpayer: Don’t look at me — you’re the one who paid for this thing. ~ Alex Halderman

RCMP: “When he exited a residence on Park Street and entered into a cab, the RCMP’s ERT engaged the suspect, there was a detonation inside the taxi, and the suspect subsequently died following a confrontation with the police,” said Assistant Commissioner Jennifer Strachan, Commanding Officer of O Division (Ontario).

updated Ottawa: Mounties acted quickly when alerted by FBI
and were in "a race against time" to stop suicide bomber; taxi
got through RCMP security perimeter after surprise arrival; police not
sure how Aaron Driver died; in video he pledged allegiance to ISIS

RCMP Deputy Commissioner Mike Cabana says tip received from FBI included a video of suicide bomber Aaron Driver, 24, and a warning that he planned to detonate a homemade bomb in an urban centre during morning or afternoon rush hour. In the video, aired during the news conference in Ottawa, a masked Driver is seen railing against western "enemies of Islam" and warning that the only solution would be the "spilling of your blood." Some media questions were answered Thursday afternoon but some questions remain, such as how Driver died: by police bullet or by shrapnel from bomb detonated in taxi. The RCMP's Jennifer Strachan, Assistant Commissioner and commanding officer for Ontario, said there will be an autopsy to determine how he died. RCMP thanked media for remaining quiet Wednesday about police activities when lives were in the balance.

updated RCMP kill ISIS suicide bomber Aaron Driver in raid;
was on peace bond; had cheered killing of soldiers in October 2014

Aaron Driver, 24, aka Harun Abdurahman, formerly a Winnipeg-based ISIS supporter known to police, was also arrested in June, 2015. Driver was not charged with a crime then, but in February was placed on a peace bond, a court order that restricted his movement, required that he stay away from social media and computers and not have contact with ISIS or similar groups. The sources also confirmed that the police action on Wednesday stemmed from a new video Driver made in which he threatened an attack on a "major city."

Strathroy is just west of London, Ontario, and due north of Cleveland, within a 2-hour drive of both Detroit and Toronto. According to an internal government document obtained by CTV News, the suspect planned a suicide bombing mission in a public area. The plan, according to the document, was to create mass casualties. Driver had claimed to be self-radicalized using material found on the internet, according to 2015 media reports.

Kissimmeee: Father of Orlando mass killer attends Hillary Clinton
rally; mugs for camera as she talks about nearby nightclub massacre

Seddique Mir Mateen, the father of the Orlando nightclub killer, had a high profile at Hillary Clinton's campaign rally in Kissimmee, Florida, near Orlando, Monday. He's seen in news video sitting in the crowd behind Clinton on stage, mugging for media cameras. His son Omar Mateen, 29, killed 49 people and wounded dozens of others in the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history. After the rally, Seddique Mateen told NBC West Palm Beach affiliate WPTV that he supports Clinton. "Hillary Clinton is good for United States versus Donald Trump, who has no solutions," he said. Omar Mateen opened fire on the Pulse nightclub, a popular spot for the LGBT community, on June 12 and pledged allegiance to ISIS during a 911 call. The event was held not far from the site of the mass shooting.

updated Detroit: The Trump 'America First' economic speech - transcript

Detroit: Trump lays out biggest tax and economic changes since Reagan;
says Motown mess is what Clinton policies will do to whole country

Trump delivered the biggest speech of the campaign Monday to a huge audience in Detroit. He laid out the broad brush strokes of his economic plan which will have more details to come. But there was plenty of change offered, from a way for companies to bring foreign profits home without a high tax hit, to eliminating taxes completely for low-income Americans and cutting taxes for all Americans, and reducing down to the 3 tax brackets favoured by the House of Representatives. Large and small businesses will have their tax rates cut to 15% from 35%, making them competitive with the rest of the world. Trump threw down the gauntlet.

Niall Ferguson: Fishtown vs. Belmont, 2016

Donald Trump greets supporters after a campaign rally on Monday in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Niall Ferguson: "The declining, dangerous country that Trump described in his supposedly 'dark' acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland was Fishtown writ large. Indeed, you could simply change the names. For Fishtown read Cleveland; for Belmont read Philadelphia, where the Democrats held their convention last week. Viewed from Belmont, everything is awesome. President Obama’s speech on Wednesday was a masterpiece of self-congratulation. He proclaimed his “faith in America — the generous, big-hearted, hopeful country that made my story.” He celebrated the United States of Diversity." ~ John Moore Getty Images

Toronto: Mayor proposes 21-acre park over downtown rail corridor

Piezoelectric delivery: California freeways will soon generate electricity

The California Energy Commission has agreed to fund multiple piezoelectric pilot projects in the Golden State. According to a commission report, "Piezoelectric crystals give an electrical discharge when mechanically stressed." So as vehicles roll over a highway embedded with these crystals, an electrical current is created, which can be harvested to feed the grid. Similar programs have been launched in Israel and Japan, while Italy has a roadway project in the works.
