Obama canceled a visit to the college planned for Oct. 16 so he could monitor the government's Ebola response from the White House.
First lady Michelle Obama appeared at a get-out-the-vote rally for Raimondo on Thursday in Providence.
One of Vietnam's most prominent dissidents said he was asked to sign a form seeking a pardon for spreading "propaganda against the state" before his release from prison last week, then forced onto a U. S.-bound flight with just the clothes on his body.
Hai, 62, said he wasn't aware of U.
The Dalai Lama was to continue his round of appearances in Boston, with speaking engagements at a downtown hotel and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that are expected to draw protests from a group accusing him of human rights abuses and discrimination.
The Tibetan spiritual leader was scheduled to speak Friday morning at the Boston Marriott Copley Place hotel at a symposium organized by the Mind and Life Institute, a nonprofit organization that is focused on how scientific research and Buddhist teachings can provide insights into the human mind and condition.
What do soup pot lids, old car transmissions, wooden salad bowls and cigar boxes have in common?
On a recent trip back to Sedalia to visit his mother, Mary Frances Herndon, he brought along three of his handmade, folk art, acoustic guitars — all made from thrift store trinkets and re-purposed materials.
Herndon, who lives in Golden, Colorado, calls himself a "junkyard luthier," and hopes to someday retire from his computer graphics job and make and sell the instruments full time.
Herndon, a 1966 Smith-Cotton High School graduate and former marching band member, is a harmonica player in two Colorado bands, Once Removed Blues Band and Ajax Blues Band.
The concept for creating musical instruments with re-purposed material came to him almost two years ago because of some wheel covers he'd saved.
I thought this is a brilliant and original idea.
 I got online and did research and there's a whole community of people making handmade instruments.
After he built the hubcap guitar he decided to try his hand at building a wooden cigar box instrument.
Herndon also brought along a guitar/banjo he'd made with a wooden salad bowl, a stainless steel soup pot lid and an inverted dog bowl.
Created with a barbecue tool kit body, he added many thrift store trinkets, plus automotive pieces and typewriter pieces.
The instrument also has car blinkers, an antique shell shaped soap dish, a small calculator, wires and tubes, plus many more novelty items.
In the days that followed, Larman Williams, then 34, could not get the real estate agent listed on the sign to return his inquiries.
The couple was trying to buy a home in a nearly all-white town.
Despite laws forbidding the practice, Ferguson, along with most of north St. Louis County, had neighborhoods with restrictive real estate policies — sometimes written, sometimes just whispered — forbidding the sale of homes to blacks.
In this suburban tableau of white post-war prosperity, there was no deference to the fact that Williams had a college degree and was working on a graduate degree in education.
Or that he was named Larman in honor of a white German manager who had given his father a job at the Universal Match Corporation plant during the Depression.
Williams was up against decades of segregated housing and zoning policies and real estate and lending practices in St.
