Trump's America: Families differ as Reagan country changes

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 11:19:09 GMT2017-01-17T11:19:09Z

WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) - The week after Donald Trump was elected president, Dr. Mai-Phuong Nguyen and two dozen other Vietnamese-Americans active in liberal causes gathered in a circle of folding chairs, consoling one another about an America almost beyond comprehension. Now, days before Trump takes the oath of office, Nguyen sits in a restaurant booth in Orange County's neon-lit Little Saigon and studies perhaps the most confounding face of the divide exposed by the election - h...



Trump's America: Switching sides in struggling Pa. county

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 11:16:56 GMT2017-01-17T11:16:56Z

PLYMOUTH, Pa. (AP) - Towns along the Susquehanna River are filled with people whose grandparents worked in coal mines, garment factories and small manufacturing companies. But those jobs are long gone in Luzerne County, and Wilkes-Barre, the county seat, has seen its population drop by more than half. Dozens of public officials have fallen to scandal. All of which helps explain how Ed Harry - who, at 70, has spent most of his working life as a union president and a Democratic party activist...



Putin: Obama's govt is working hard to undermine Trump

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 15:15:46 GMT2017-01-17T15:15:46Z

MOSCOW (AP) - In a biting attack, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday accused the outgoing U.S. administration of trying to undermine President-elect Donald Trump by spreading fake allegations and said those who are doing it are "worse than prostitutes." The statement reflected the Kremlin's boiling anger at President Barack Obama's administration, which declined to comment on Putin's accusation. Asked about an unsubstantiated dossier out...



MH370 hunt ends, maybe forever, after nearly 3 years, $160M

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 13:51:33 GMT2017-01-17T13:51:33Z

SYDNEY (AP) - The nearly three-year search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ended Tuesday, possibly forever - not because investigators have run out of leads, but because the countries involved in the expensive and vast deep-sea hunt have shown no appetite for opening another big phase. Late last year, as ships with high-tech search equipment covered the last strips of the 120,000-square kilometer (46,000-square mile) search zone, experts concluded they should have been searching a smaller ...



Markets cheer, EU wary as UK PM May signals 'clean Brexit'

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 17:21:10 GMT2017-01-17T17:21:10Z

LONDON (AP) - Britain's future outside the European Union became much clearer Tuesday: It's so long to the single market, goodbye to the European Court of Justice and farewell to the freedom of movement for workers. In a long-awaited speech, Prime Minister Theresa May finally revealed the U.K's hand as it prepares to start EU exit talks. She said the U.K. wants to free itself from EU governance and stop paying millions into its coffers, but still remain friends, a...



Turkey: Istanbul nightclub attacker confessed after capture

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 17:09:04 GMT2017-01-17T17:09:04Z

ISTANBUL (AP) - The accused perpetrator of a New Year's nightclub attack in Istanbul has confessed and his fingerprints are a match, Turkish authorities said Tuesday. They identified him as an Uzbek national who trained in Afghanistan and staged the attack for the Islamic State group. The gunman shot a policeman and a civilian outside the Reina night club before entering the swanky building on the banks of the Bosporus and unleashing a hail of bullets on hundreds of people gathered...



Orlando nightclub gunman's wife faces charges tied to attack

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The widow of the Orlando nightclub gunman has been charged with helping her husband in the months leading up to the June massacre that left 49 people dead, according to an indictment unsealed Tuesday. Noor Salman, 30, is due in federal court in Oakland on Tuesday, following her arrest a day earlier on the Florida charges. The two-count indictment accuses her of knowingly aiding and abetting her husband, Omar Mateen, in providing material support and resources to the Isl...



Israel's Netanyahu mired in series of corruption allegations

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:41:24 GMT2017-01-17T16:41:24Z

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu might be upbeat these days: The economy is growing, his opposition is weak and the incoming Trump administration seems friendly, even to the much-maligned Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Instead, the long-serving leader is mired in a series of eye-popping corruption investigations in a country that has already jailed a prime minister and president. Police have interrogated Netanyahu several times "under caution" ov...

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:43:46 GMT2017-01-17T16:43:46Z

DETROIT (AP) - General Motors plans to invest $1 billion in U.S. factories and add thousands of new white-collar jobs, measures that have been in the works for years but were announced Tuesday after criticism from President-elect Donald Trump. In all, the Detroit automaker said it will create or keep 7,000 jobs in the next few years, including about 2,000 at factories. Another 5,000 new positions will be created at its auto financing arm and to develop advanced technology, electric and auto...



Armani as furry wrapper-in-chief for Milan menswear season

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 15:37:15 GMT2017-01-17T15:37:15Z

MILAN (AP) - There have been lots of warm fuzzies on the Milan runway this season: shaggy fur, furry footwear, thick knits, big gloves, droopy caps, face-framing neck-warmers. All useful for hunkering down in turbulent times. Four days of menswear previews for next winter and fall at Milan Fashion Week ended Tuesday with a focus on soft tailoring and comfortable looks. Blazers tended to be long, and paired with loose-fitting trousers. Overcoats, if not furry, had fur collars. Shoes had big ...
