Ian death toll climbs to 54; nearly 1 million still without power in Florida

The death toll from Hurricane Ian rose to 54 and power remained out to more than 800,000 homes and businesses across Florida on Sunday, four days after the Category 4 beast slammed ashore along the state's Gulf Coast. Confirmed fatalities included 47 in Florida, four in North Carolina and three in Cuba, where Ian made its first landfall Tuesday. More than 1,000 people have been rescued along Florida's southwestern coast alone, said Gen. Daniel Hokanson, head of the National Guard. Search and rescue efforts were continuing in some isolated areas. Florida Power & Light said it had restored power to more than 1.5 million customers, including all hospitals in its service area. The weakened storm was meandering up the East Coast on Sunday, continuing to bring rain as far north as Washington, D.C.

Venezuela releases 7 jailed Americans in prisoner swap

In a rare softening of hostile relations, the White House said Saturday that Venezuela freed seven Americans imprisoned in the South American country and the United States released two nephews of President Nicholas Maduro's wife who had been jailed for years on drug smuggling convictions. The swap of the Americans, including five oil executives held for nearly five years, follows months of back-channel diplomacy by Washington's top hostage negotiator and other U.S. officials - secretive talks with a major oil producer that took on greater urgency after sanctions on Russia put pressure on global energy prices. A senior Biden administration official said the U.S. and Venezuela had explored a range of options, but that it became clear that "one particular step" - the release of the two Maduro family members - was essential in getting a deal done.

  • The White House says Biden is 'surging' resources to help migrants at the border. Is it enough?

  • Venezuelans are a growing group in US. Can they recreate the Cuban American voter playbook?

Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson formally welcomed to a Supreme Court she will help to shape

The newest associate justice of the Supreme Court took her seat behind the court's mahogany bench Friday at a formal investiture ceremony that was full of symbolism and history. And on Monday, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson will take part in her first oral argument - delving into an environmental case that has vexed the court for years. The focus on Jackson, the first African American woman to ascend to the nation's highest court, has come with a good deal of theorizing about how she might influence an institution where conservatives are firmly in control. In the politically charged cases, it's a good bet Jackson will be in dissent just like the justice she replaced, Stephen Breyer. Jackson became an associate justice in June after taking one oath of office from Chief Justice John Roberts and another from Breyer, who retired at the end of the term.

  • For Black women judges, blazing a trail has meant opportunity, scrutiny.

  • A line of attack for critics: Jackson's history as a federal public defender.

At least 125 people killed during riot at Indonesia soccer match

Mass panic and a chaotic run for exits after police fired tear gas at an Indonesian soccer match Saturday evening left at least 125 dead, most of whom were trampled or suffocated. In what has become one of the world's deadliest sports events ever, violence broke out after the game ended with host Arema FC of East Java's Malang city losing to Persebaya of Surabaya 3-2. Disappointed with their team's loss, thousands of supporters of Arema, known as "Aremania," reacted by throwing bottles and other objects at players and officials. Attention immediately focused on the police use of tear gas, and witnesses described police beating them with sticks and shields before shooting canisters directly into the crowds. Witnesses said fans flooded the Kanjuruhan Stadium pitch and demanded that Arema management explain why, after 23 years of undefeated home matches against Persebaya, this one ended in a loss.

NFLPA fires independent doctor involved in treating Tua Tagovailoa injury

The NFL Players Association fired the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant who was involved in treating Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa after he was injured during last Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Just days later, Tagovailoa was injured again. The QB was taken to the hospital Thursday night after hitting his head during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Both the named UNC and the Dolphins team doctor were interviewed the next day. According to the NFL, every UNC is selected and credentialed by the players union and the NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee. They are tasked with helping the team's medical staff in identifying concussions. The concussion protocol stipulates that players who have "gross motor instability" can return to the field of play if the instability wasn't neurologically related.

Russian troops forced to retreat from newly annexed city; Zelenskyy's hometown attacked

The hometown of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was attacked by suicide drones Sunday as Russia struck back against the effective Ukrainian counteroffensive that has pushed its troops back from thousands of miles of land they had occupied for months. The attack came one day after Ukrainian troops forced Russian troops to withdraw from Lyman, a strategic Donbas region city located in one of four areas incorporated by Russia on Friday. Russia said Saturday that it had withdrawn its troops from the eastern city of Lyman, where Ukrainian forces made a bold battlefield challenge to Russia's annexation plan. Ukrainian troops had encircled and trapped Russian forces in the city, a key transportation hub located in one of four areas incorporated by Russia a day earlier.

  • Forced to retreat: Russia abandons annexed city as Ukraine pushes forward.

  • Fact check: Did Russia's invasion raise costs for new wind energy projects?
