Your Look At Things To Know For Your Tuesday

For the first time in 60 years, Italy won’t be in the World Cup. Hey, Team USA feels your pain. Here’s what else you need to know to
Get Up to Speed.
 
Roy Moore

DC Republicans are ramping up the pressure to get Roy Moore out of the Alabama Senate race. But the more they insist, the more he resists. The chorus to get Moore to quit grew even louder after a fifth woman came forward to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore sexually assaulted her back in the 1970s, when she just 16 years old. At a news conference, Nelson displayed an inscription in her yearbook that she says Moore wrote, and she said she’s willing to testify under oath about her claims. Moore called her allegations “absolutely false” and said he doesn’t know her.

In addition to urging Moore to quit the race, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others are looking at other options, like drafting a write-in candidate or expelling Moore from the Senate if he were to win. Whatever they decide to do, they don’t have a lot time. The Alabama Senate special election is set for December 12.

Investigations
The Department of Justice is considering a special counsel to took look into the Clinton Foundation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, at the request of House Republicans, has asked senior federal prosecutors to check out alleged ties between the Clinton Foundation and the sale of Uranium One, a uranium mining company, to Russia’s Atomic Energy Agency. Republicans have claimed Russian interests sought to donate to the foundation to persuade Clinton to support the deal, which was OK’d in 2010 when Clinton was secretary of state.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. exchanged private messages with WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential campaign. According to the released messages, first reported by The Atlantic, WikiLeaks reached out to President Donald Trump’s adult son just before midnight on September 20, 2016, regarding a PAC-funded, anti-Trump website. This is noteworthy because the intelligence community believes Russia disseminated information from a hack of the Democratic National Committee through WikiLeaks. There are several investigations into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Iran-Iraq earthquake
That powerful earthquake that struck along the Iran-Iraq border is the deadliest quake of the year. It’s killed at least 452 people so far — more than September’s Mexico City quake — and injured thousands. About 100 of the dead are from a single town in one Iranian province. An Iraqi woman who was having dinner with her children when the quake hit said the building they were in “was just dancing in the air.”
Puerto Rico
The general’s leaving, and he’s taking the troops, helicopters and supplies with him. But Puerto Rico is still hurting almost two months after Hurricane Maria whacked the island. The power’s still not on in more than half of Puerto Rican homes and businesses. The water’s out for more than one in 10. But Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan says the time is right to transition the relief effort from the federal military to reservists and the National Guard. That decision was made by Puerto Rico’s governor, FEMA and the Defense Department. Buchanan says the island is far from normal but much progress has been made, like the clearing of debris from most roads.
High blood pressure
How’s your blood pressure? Is it normal? It may not be now. The American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology and nine other health organizations released new guidelines on high blood pressure. Under the new standard, high blood pressure should be treated at 130/80 rather than 140/90. The result is that now almost half of all Americans are considered to have hypertension. And it puts tens of millions of more Americans in the high blood pressure category.

 

Amazon Age
Amazon’s taking us back to Middle Earth with a new “Lord of the Rings” TV series, so get ready for more hobbits, elves and dwarves.

Model citizen
Colin Kaepernick may be persona non grata to the NFL, but to GQ, he’s the “Citizen of the Year.”

Passion for fashion
The clothes that Walmart sells are about to get a serious upgrade, now that Lord & Taylor is setting up shop on Walmart.com.

Our ‘Shero’
Barbie will rock a hijab for the first time as part of Mattel’s “Shero” doll line. It’s based on prominent, diverse women, like Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad

That’s how many touchdowns a Minnesota high school team scored — in the final minute — for an epic comeback win.

Trump wraps up his big Asia trip, while the world’s most powerful central bankers gather in Frankfurt, and Venezuela goes into default.

Asia tour ends

President Donald Trump hailed progress toward his goal of reducing the U.S. trade deficit as he ended his swing through Asia, but questions linger about how much he actually achieved. He said on Twitter he will be making a “major statement” when he returns to Washington, where the debate over tax reform trundles on. The House’s chief tax writer says he’s confident its bill will pass a vote that could come as early as Thursday. Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be pressed by House Democrats today on fresh questions about Russian contacts with Trump’s presidential campaign.

Central bankers gather

A conference featuring the world’s most powerful central bankers kicked off in Frankfurt with panelists Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, the euro zone’s Mario Draghi, and Japan’s Haruhiko Kuroda.  The topic of the get-together – monetary communication – should be of interest to Fed Chair nominee Jerome Powell, who has publicly acknowledged that there are shortcomings in the interest-rate dot plot the Federal Open Market Committee releases four times a year.

Data on a roll

Germany’s gross domestic product came in above estimates in the third quarter, underpinning the recovery narrative across the euro area. The euro climbed against its G-10 peers and traded 0.5 percent higher against the dollar at 6:04 a.m. Eastern Time. In the U.K., cost of living pressures continue to weigh on consumer sentiment, with inflation holding at a 5 1/2-year high in October, as cheaper fuel offsets rising food price. The pound fell as much as 0.3 percent after the release.

Markets fall

Overnight, the main Asian equity gauges declined as data showed China’s economy moderating. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index retreated 0.3 percent, with Japan’s Topix index closing 0.3 percent lower and the Nikkei 225 Stock Average little changed. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 Index was 0.3 percent lower at 6:25 a.m. and the FTSE 100 Index added 0.2 percent as the pound slipped. S&P 500 futures were down 0.1 percent, the 10-year Treasury yield was at 2.40 percent, and gold was 0.3 percent lower.

Venezuela defaults

S&P Global Ratings declared Venezuela to be in default after it missed two interest payments on its debt. Before the announcement, the Latin American nation held a grand gathering with creditors in Caracas, where bondholders were given a red-carpet welcome but no concrete restructuring proposals. On Tuesday, the International Swaps & Derivatives Association will reconvene to consider whether delayed payments by state oil producer Petroleos de Venezuela SA will trigger default-insurance contracts.
