In a scene in Daniel Radcliffe's new movie Jungle, the young man he plays wakes up in an uncomfortable bed, alone and in pain. The side of his forehead above his eye is burning and he instinctively touches his hand to it, grimacing. He then reaches into his bag and pulls out a pair of tweezers. Shaking, he takes the metallic implement to his forehead and presses it through the irritated skin, which is bulging in a suspicious manner.
President Trump has personally interviewed multiple candidates for U.S. attorney positions, according to several reports, an unusual move in the typical appointment process for these jobs.

If you've ever lost a beloved pet, you know how much it can hurt. In fact, the pain could be enough to break your heart, suggests a new report published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

On China’s remote western frontier with Kazakhstan, yurts and camels are silhouetted against a piercing blue sky. Yet the most striking image rising from the desert is an entirely new city. Founded four years ago, Khorgos is poised to become the world’s busiest inland port, a vital link in China’s multi-billion dollar plan to re-create the Silk Road. Some $8 billion of trade passes through each year, say Chinese officials.

Not in the way she looks; not in the way she sounds.
A powerful blast detonated overnight at a police station ripped off the building’s entrance. A dynamite-laced apartment doorway blew a chunk of rubble more than 250-feet away, into the living room of a neighboring building. And a provincial town was put on lockdown after a suspected car-bombing. There have been at least five bomb blasts or scares in Sweden since the early hours of Friday, Oct. 13.
“Get undressed!” the taxi driver demanded and gestured with a knife. He pulled over the deserted side of the highway with piles of construction rubble. I realized we had veered off course and ended up far on the desert road leading out of Cairo. I tried to get out of the car, but he had locked the doors. He pulled back his driver’s seat and pinned me down with it, pressing hard on my chest. He then began head-butting me on the face.
Carles Puigdemont woke up this Saturday morning as president of Catalonia, but by lunchtime, he was out of a job. For the first time in its nearly 40 years of democracy, Spain has acted upon Article 155, the provision in its constitution that permits it to revoke powers from autonomous regions during times of crisis. And as Puigdemont knows better than anyone, Catalonia is nothing if not a crisis.
In a nod to his nationalist agenda and tough line with rogue state North Korea, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is almost ubiquitously described as a hawk. But phoenix might be a more appropriate avian analogy after Sunday’s general election, when Abe romped back to power despite a series of corruption scandals earlier in the year that had sent his approval rating plummeting to just 26%.

We're still seven long days away from the highly anticipated return of Stranger Things, but the season 2 soundtrack is here to help you party like it's 1984.

Composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein are still serving up the '80s vibe with 34 synth-heavy tracks including "Eggo in the Snow" and "We Go Out Tonight.
Former President Jimmy Carter may be on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum from the current leader of the free world, but he's still offering to help with one of the most pressing issues — the crisis with North Korea.

The web, or "world wide web" as we used to say, turns 27 years old on December 20. On that date, nearly three decades ago, British engineer and scientist Tim Berners-Lee launched the world's first website, running on a NeXT computer at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) in Switzerland. The website wasn't much at the time, just a few sentences organized into topic areas that laid out the arguments for the concept.
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) appeared to take aim at President Donald Trump's draft deferrals during the Vietnam War this week, following a series of public rebukes of the Trump administration. In an interview about the Vietnam War on C-SPAN3, American History TV, on Oct. 22, McCain criticized "high income" draftees who avoided military service while apparently alluding to the president's own draft exemption — but he did not mention Trump by name.
