Kay Hagan's re-election is in doubt, North Carolina's Democratic senator has an uncomfortable decision to make as President Barack Obama appears in her state before a critical audience she's trying to woo: Veterans. In the same camera shot as Obama, who lost North Carolina in 2012 and is unpopular in the state, could offer her Republican opponent fresh attack ad footage tying her to the president.
as France remembered the victims of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks, windows in apartments, office buildings and corner cafes were draped with the French flag on Friday in a rare display of patriotism. France 24 reported, French President Francois Hollande called on the nation to display the flag outside their homes and businesses on the national day of mourning. A government spokesperson said about the call for flags to be displayed, “We have tried to find a way to let every French person be part of Friday’s tribute."
NAIROBI, Kenya — Pope Francis denounced the conditions slum-dwellers are forced to live in, saying Friday that access to safe water is a basic human right and that everyone should have dignified, adequate housing. Francis insisted on access to a basic sewage system, garbage collection, electricity as well as schools, hospitals and sport facilities during a visit to the Kangemi slum on Nairobi's northwestern edge. The pope has frequently insisted on the need for the three "Ls" — land, labor and lodging — and on Friday he focused on lodging as a critical issue facing the world amid rapid urbanization that is helping to upset Earth's delicate ecological balance.
The prosecution in the trial of Daniel Holtzclaw, a former Oklahoma City police officer charged with the sexual abuse or rape of 13 different women, has drawn a picture of a predator who followed a cynical calculus: because his victims were black, living on the margins, and had criminal histories, he was confident no one would believe them. Holtzclaw is said to have methodically targeted black women with criminal records or a history of drug use or sex work for seven months while he worked the 4pm to 2am patrol. For all but one of his alleged victims, police investigators claim, Holtzclaw used his position on the force to run background checks for outstanding warrants or other means by which to coerce sex. But to the alarm of many abuse victim advocates, Holtzclaw’s emerging defense has parallels to what prosecutors claim were the former officer’s real-time calculations. His attorney has aggressively questioned his accusers about their marijuana use, drinking and suspended drivers licenses in an attempt to undermine their credibility.
Initial spot checks showed crowds were thin at U.S. stores and shopping malls in the early hours of Friday as shoppers responded to early Black Friday discounts with a mix of enthusiasm and caution. Reflecting the new normal in U.S. holiday shopping, which was traditionally kicked off the next day, Black Friday, many shoppers headed out to stores on Thanksgiving evening. In an effort to attract the most eager holiday shoppers and fend off competition from Amazon.com, U.S. retailers have increasingly extended their holiday deals by opening stores on the evening of Thanksgiving.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation launched a surprise new Raspberry Pi board in the form of the $5 Zero on Thursday. It’s by far the cheapest PC you can buy today, but the Foundation wasn’t even considering creating such a low cost device until Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, had a chat with Google’s Eric Schmidt. Having already awarded the Foundation a grant of $1 million, Schmidt was eager to know what the next product would be. Upton happily told him, but Schmidt was not impressed and explained that cheaper is better because it’s, “very hard to compete with cheap.” The latest version still counts as a fully functional computer, you can plug storage and peripherals into (just like the other Pi boards), but it removes the cost barrier.
