Investigators dig for clues into fatal New Jersey train crash

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 20:00:12 -0400

(image) Investigators spoke with what they called "cooperative" crew members and sent a black box recorder to the manufacturer for downloading on Friday in the search for clues as to why a New Jersey commuter train failed to stop on Thursday and smashed into the terminal. The morning rush hour crash killed a 34-year-old woman on the platform and injured more than 100 people in Hoboken, just across the Hudson River from New York City, toppling support columns in the early 20th century building. U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators said they retrieved one event recorder from the locomotive in the rear of the train on Thursday night but were unable to download its information, so they sent it to the manufacturer under board supervision on Friday to capture the data.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, in a meeting last week with a small number of Syrian civilians and others, said he had lost an argument within the Obama administration to back up diplomatic efforts to end the bloodshed in Syria with the threat of using military force, the New York Times reported on Friday.

Trump goes on offensive against former beauty queen, Clinton calls him 'unhinged'

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 18:55:10 -0400

(image) By Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump increased his attacks on a former beauty queen with a vague and unsubstantiated allegation about a sex tape in predawn Twitter posts on Friday that prompted Democratic rival Hillary Clinton to denounce him as "unhinged." Trump's refusal to drop his invective against Alicia Machado, the Miss Universe from Venezuela whom he criticized for gaining weight after she won the crown in 1996, threatened to damage his already weak standing among women and Hispanics. With less than six weeks to go until the Nov. 8 election, Trump made reference - without giving evidence - to a sex tape involving Machado, who had publicly denounced him all week as a humiliating bully.
