Foreign ministers of Southeast Asian countries began arriving at a convention center for an unscheduled last-ditch attempt to hammer a consensus on how to deal with China's territorial expansion in the South China Sea.

Las Vegas police say a man was shot to death outside an apartment complex and no arrests have been made.

Instead of banning Russia from Rio for running a state-sanctioned doping operation, the IOC members decided instead Sunday to allow individual sports federations to decide which Russians can compete.
 his agents were working late into the night at the Sochi doping lab, exchanging urine samples taken from the country's athletes for clean ones in an elaborate scheme to escape detection.
The country led the medal standings, and Russian pride surged with every big win.
Apparently you can't, since the IOC — for all its bluster about operating drug-free Olympics — seems more worried about offending Russia than protecting clean athletes.
Hard to figure out who they are, though, with doping so widespread that Russian labs covered up more than 600 positive drug tests in 29 Olympic sports from 2011 until last August.
 you have incompetent Olympic leaders who talk grandly about cleaning up the games, then bow to Putin when given a chance to make the biggest statement ever about the evils of doping in sports.

The dome of high pressure traps hot air and is the basis for the "critical high temperatures" the country has been experiencing the past week, Robinson said, even for being the warmest time of the year.
"The Northeast is a little bit of a mixed bag, but the bottom line is that the conditions have deteriorated over the past several weeks to a couple of months," said Rich Tinker, a drought specialist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Hillary Clinton must overcome lingering bitterness among supporters of defeated rival Bernie Sanders and clean up a resurgent political mess of the party's own making.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the successful fundraiser, party advocate and tough-talking mother and breast cancer survivor, is on the outs, after publication of emails that suggest Democratic officials favored Clinton over Sanders.
Hillary Clinton might be the first woman to top a major party presidential ticket, but the broader political landscape is a different story: in state legislatures, 16 states having fewer women serving than in 2005.
