The legendary rockers relaunched their “No Filter” tour Sunday at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis without their drummer of nearly six decades.

A former Northwestern University professor is set to stand trial in the stabbing death of his boyfriend as part of what prosecutors said was a sexual fantasy he shared with another man who was charged in the case. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that jury selection, opening statements and testimony from at least one witness are expected to happen Monday in the trial of 47-year-old Wyndham Lathem.

With more than 40 million doses of coronavirus vaccines available, U.S. health authorities said they’re confident there will be enough for every American who qualifies. A spike in demand is expected after the Centers and Disease Control and Prevention endorsed boosters of the Pfizer vaccine for all Americans 65 and older. The CDC said younger people at higher risk from the coronavirus because of health conditions or their jobs would also qualify. Meanwhile, more than 70 million Americans remain unvaccinated. That despite the enticement of lottery prizes, free food or gifts and pleas from exhausted health care workers as the average number of deaths per day climbed to more than 1,900 in recent weeks.

The deputy leader of Britain’s main opposition party is refusing to apologize for calling the governing Conservatives “scum.” Labour Party lawmaker Angela Rayner called members of the government a “bunch of scum — homophobic, racist, misogynistic” during a reception Saturday at the party’s annual conference. The comment drew a reprimand from Labour leader Keir Starmer, who said he would not use such language and “will talk to Angela about it later on.” But Rayner defended the comments, saying she had used “street language” to convey frustration with Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government. The left-of-center Labour Party is holding its annual convention in the English seaside city of Brighton. Read more

The “amistad,” or friendship, that Del Rio, Texas, and Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, celebrate with a festival each year has been important in helping them deal with the challenges from a migrant camp that shut down the border bridge between the two communities for more than a week. Since the Sept. 17 shutdown, thousands of residents in both cities haven't been able to stick to their routines of going back and forth for work or medical appointments. Federal officials announced the border crossing would reopen to passenger traffic late Saturday afternoon and to cargo traffic on Monday. On Friday, the camp on the U.S. side that once held as many as 15,000 mostly Haitian refugees was completely cleared.  Read more

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi didn’t directly mention Pakistan or China in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly, but the targets of his address were clear.

A third federal judge has blocked Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s order allowing families to opt out of school mask mandates. The decision is the latest development in the ongoing legal battle over Lee’s order launched by parents and advocates alarmed over the spike in coronavirus cases in Tennessee’s schools. U.S. District Judge Waverly Crenshaw handed down the ruling on Friday. It applies solely to Williamson County, an affluent region just south of Nashville.

President Joe Biden has met with other leaders of an Indo-Pacific alliance known as “the Quad” as he wraps up a week of diplomacy with both allies and adversaries. The White House meeting Friday with leaders from India, Japan and Australia gave Biden a chance to put the spotlight on a chief foreign policy goal: greater attention to the Pacific.

Medication abortion accounts for about 40% of all abortions in the U.S. The increasingly common method relies on pills rather than surgery, opening the possibility for abortions to be done in a woman’s home rather than a clinic. It’s an option that has become important during the COVID-19 pandemic. As Republican states move to restrict access to abortion generally, many of them also are limiting access to medication-induced abortions. Abortion providers say medication abortion is safe and essential, especially as access to clinics in Republican-controlled states becomes more difficult. Read more

Unsurprisingly, the coronavirus pandemic was THE talking point at the United Nations General Assembly this week — serving as projection, promotional tool and proxy for other pressing issues put forward by world leaders in their signature annual addresses. Through the lenses of vaccine inequality, economic disaster, scientific misinformation and social isolation, just about every president, king, foreign minister and head of state talked about the pandemic as a sweeping global catastrophe. Yet each made it into a distinctive political message that said as much about a nation and its leader as it did about the virus itself. Read more

An advocacy group for older adults has filed a civil rights complaint against Idaho over state crisis standards of care guidelines for hospitals overwhelmed amid the coronavirus pandemic. The group Justice in Aging wants the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate Idaho’s health care rationing plan.

Two women are among candidates for Japan’s governing party leadership for the first time in 13 years in what seems like a big step in the country's male-dominated politics. But their views are different. Seiko Noda supports gender equality and diversity while the ultra-conservative Sanae Takaichi advocates paternalistic nationalism and a stronger military. In Wednesday's race to pick a successor of Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, they are challenging two men — vaccinations minister Taro Kono and ex-Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, both top candidates. Japan ranked worst among advanced nations in a gender gap survey, and women comprise only about 10% of parliament. Takaichi is seen as a fast-rising star with the backing of former leader Shinzo Abe, her conservative ally.  Read more

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has bracketed Myanmar with Afghanistan and Ethiopia as nations where peace and stability remain a distant dream. He declared unwavering support for the people of the turbulent, military-ruled Southeast Asia state in their pursuit of democracy and peace. The situation in Myanmar after the army’s seizure of power eight months ago has since become an extended bloody conflict with ever-escalating violence. Yet the U.N. is unlikely to take any meaningful action against Myanmar’s new rulers because they have the support of China and Russia, which are among the top arms suppliers to the country and would almost certainly veto any effort to impose a coordinated arms embargo, or anything beyond an anodyne call for peace.  Read more

But as he made the short stroll between the 10th green and 11th tee at Whistling Straits, the gallery settled any debates with roars of “MVP! MVP!" Johnson has a complicated history with the course. He didn’t realize he was in a bunker there when he grounded his club in the sand on the 18th hole at the 2010 PGA Championship. The two-shot penalty cost him a spot in a playoff. Read more
