Despite its critical role in protecting the Amazon rainforest, Brazil will not endorse a global anti-deforestation initiative being announced at the U. N. climate summit, complaining it was left out of the consultation process. A U. N. official disputed that claim.
Osama bin Laden's son-in-law was due in court to face a possible life sentence for his role as the spokesman for al-Qaida following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.
Sulaiman Abu Ghaith — the highest-ranking al-Qaida figure to face trial on U. S. soil since the attacks — was convicted in March on conspiracy charges that he answered Osama bin Laden's request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like the 19 who hijacked four commercial jets on Sept.
Brazil's environment minister says her country will not sign on to a global anti-deforestation initiative being unveiled at the U. N. climate summit.
Despite its critical role in protecting the Amazon rainforest, Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira, speaking on the eve of Tuesday's climate summit, said Brazil was "not invited to be engaged in the preparation process" of the declaration.
Wood could not avoid the big inning, and the Cubs could not touch Wainwright in an 8-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.
Wainwright hit the 20-win mark for the second time while matching his career-high for victories, and the Cardinals moved a step closer toward their second straight division title.
Jon Jay added two hits and drove in three, capping a four-run fourth with a two-run single to make it 4-0.
Holliday also had a run-scoring double to left and Yadier Molina singled in a run in that inning, and the Cardinals broke it open in the fifth.
Matt Carpenter led off that inning with a walk and was ruled safe at second tagging on Randal Grichuk's fly to center following a replay review after initially being called out.
Adams and Carpenter returned to the lineup after missing two games because of a stomach virus that's been battering the team.
Cubs: RF Jorge Soler was back in the Cubs' lineup after leaving Saturday's game against the Dodgers as a precaution due to wet conditions.
RHP Shelby Miller (10-9, 3.68 ERA) looks to stay on a roll for St.
The right-hander would like to have one pitch back from his third major league start, a 4-3 loss to the Texas Rangers.
Tropeano (1-2) gave up a bases-loaded triple to Rougned Odor with two outs in the third inning Monday night, and the Rangers never trailed.
Tropeano still pitched into the seventh, when he hit Jake Smolinski with a pitch to start the inning and was chased when 31-year-old Guilder Rodriguez got his first major league RBI.
Rodriguez, who had played 13 seasons and 1,095 games in the minors before getting called up earlier this month, had his first two major league hits.
Jose Altuve then had an RBI double, his major league-best 221st hit, and Chris Carter hit a sacrifice fly to deep right.
Marisnick also turned in an incredible catch in right, reaching up and making a running grab to rob Adrian Beltre of extra bases in the eighth inning.
The second game of a three-game series between the bottom two teams in the AL West, with left-hander Brett Oberholtzer (5-12) going for the Astros against Texas rookie right-hander Nick Martinez (4-11), who has a 2.74 ERA over his last four starts.
