Joe Crowley in a shocking upset earlier this year, expressed "outrage" on behalf of her constituents over the opening of a new Amazon headquarters in Long Island City, Queens.

Amazon.com Inc will on Tuesday announce it has selected New York and Northern Virginia for its second headquarters, a source told Reuters, ending a more than year-long contest that has seen frenzied bidding from locales across North America. Amazon's plan to split its second headquarters, dubbed "HQ2", evenly between two cities will boost its presence around New York and the nation's capital as it seeks to gain a recruiting edge over Silicon Valley tech firms. The source, who is familiar with the matter, told Reuters that Amazon will also announce a significant investment in one other city, in addition to revealing the two HQ2 locations.

The wildfire raging in Northern California is now the deadliest in state
After transforming the once tranquil town of Paradise, California into charred automobiles and tales of horror, the Camp Fire takes its infamous spot as the deadliest wildfire in California history. At a multi-agency press conference Monday night, the Butte Country Sheriff's Office announced that 42 have been confirmed dead. This grim statistic surpasses the 29 Los Angelenos killed by the Griffith Park Fire in 1933. While it's unclear just how many individuals are still missing, officials said they've located 231 previously missing persons, who are now safe, and have received 1514 requests to check on or locate people. But, that large number may include multiple requests...
Technology firms led a plunge in Asian markets Tuesday, tracking a deep sell-off in New York where Apple tumbled on worries about demand for its iPhones, while energy firms were also in free-fall with oil prices. The latest bloodbath comes after a key parts supplier said a client -- widely thought to be Apple -- had slashed orders, stoking speculation that the US titan's popular handset was not selling as well as in the past. Apple was already under pressure after posting disappointing earnings earlier this month and announcing it would no longer report iPhone sale numbers.

Goldman Sachs "cheated" Malaysia, its leader Mahathir Mohamad said, after two former bankers from the Wall Street titan were charged over a scandal that allegedly saw billions looted from state coffers. The US Justice Department unveiled criminal charges this month against ex-Goldman bankers Tim Leissner and Ng Chong Hwa, accusing them of working with a Malaysian financier to launder huge sums allegedly stolen from sovereign wealth fund 1MDB. In an interview with broadcaster CNBC, Prime Minister Mahathir said that "obviously we've been cheated", when asked about Goldman's dealings in Malaysia.
Mueller's team reportedly has evidence that Corsi knew in advance of the stolen emails. Jerome Corsi, a rightwing author and conspiracy theorist, has said he expects to be criminally indicted by Robert Mueller, the special counsel. Corsi, an associate of the longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone, said on his online live stream on Monday that he would soon be charged "for some form of lying" by Mueller's team, which is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election.
The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen has agreed to allow some wounded Huthi rebels to be evacuated, following a visit to the region by British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, his office said Tuesday. The issue has proved a sticking point in previous peace talks and the move could now pave the way for fresh negotiations, Britain's foreign ministry said in a statement. "The Saudi-led coalition (has) agreed to the evacuation of wounded Huthis from Yemen, one of the key stumbling blocks to the UN Geneva talks in September," it added.

ATLANTA (AP) - The Latest on the Georgia governor's race (all times local):
A judge on Monday denied Florida Republican Senate nominee Rick Scott's request that voting equipment in Broward County be impounded for security when not in use, proposing instead that three armed deputies be assigned to increase security at Broward election headquarters. During an emergency hearing in the lawsuit brought Sunday by Scott's campaign, his lawyers asked Judge Jack Tuter to impound ballots and machines in Broward County, citing concerns about Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes's handling of the count, given her past convictions for violating elections law and her office's failures to report vote counts since last Tuesday's election. Take away the concerns of the citizens,...

A 101-year-old French pensioner has mistaken Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, for the wife of Emmanuel Macron, the French President, in a touching mix-up during First World War commemorations. The Franco-German "couple" may not be firing on all cylinders politically but one old French woman applied the term quite literally to the leaders of the European Union's two heavyweight nations. The conjugal confusion took place as the two heads of state were attending a ceremony on Saturday near the town of Compiègne, north of Paris, to mark the centenary of the signing of the Armistice agreement that ended the conflict on November 11, 1918. As they met members of the public, a...

Neither vitamin D nor fish oil lowered the odds of stroke or of getting cancer in the first place in the trial, whose participants did not know whether they were taking the real supplements or a dummy pill. The heart attack rate in fish oil recipients was 28 percent lower than among those who got the dummy pill, or placebo, and it was 77 percent lower among African American participants - although the lead author of the study told Reuters Health that this dramatic drop in risk among black participants needs to be confirmed. For people taking vitamin D who developed cancer, the death rate from cancer was 25 percent lower, possibly because the vitamin "may affect the biology of the tumor...
