Heavy rains that hit in an area scarred by the deadliest wildfire in recorded California history caused flooding that prompted evacuations of homes and shut down part of a highway on Thursday, officials said.
The Butte County Sheriff’s Office issued an evacuation order for an area east of Chico, a city near the Camp Fire burn area, after storms dumped as much as 1-and-a-half inches of rain in the area burned by the fire, and after thunderstorms on Thursday dropped another 1 ¼ inches, officials said.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel will miss the opening of the G20 summit in Argentina after technical issues forced her government plane to make an unscheduled but safe landing, German delegation sources said late on Thursday.
Merkel and German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz will resume their travel to Buenos Aires early on Friday, but the long flight time means they will arrive after world leaders start their discussions.
The government's Airbus A340 aircraft carrying Merkel and her delegation to the G20 summit turned around after technical problems surfaced an hour into the 15-hour flight, and landed safely at the Cologne-Bonn airport.

A convicted killer serving three life sentences in a Texas prison has confessed to killing 90 women over the course of almost four decades. If proven true, it would make him one of the worst serial killers in US history.
Samuel Little, 78, is already serving three consecutive life sentences without parole after being convicted of murdering three women. Perhaps that's why he was more than willing to speak to the FBI when the bureau's Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP) suspected him of another crime in Odessa, Texas. He also agreed to talk in exchange for a move to another prison.
The investigation stems from the 2016 Panama Papers leak, Deutsche Bank says.
Two Deutsche Bank staff members are suspected of helping clients set up off-shore businesses to launder money gained from criminal deeds.
Shares of the bank fall 3.4 percent.
Some 170 police officers, prosecutors and tax inspectors searched six of Deutsche Bank's offices Thursday morning, Frankfurt's public prosecutor's office said in a statement.
The public prosecutor's office in Frankfurt said an evaluation of data from the Panama Papers had triggered suspicion that the bank may have helped customers create offshore companies in tax havens around the world.

But the attorneys for the opioid-dependent babies are going to court this week to argue that their young clients’ crushing needs are being overlooked in the legal morass. They say the clock is ticking to help hundreds of thousands of kids potentially facing lifelong health and learning complications researchers are still scrambling to understand.

A student of psychology, at age twenty-three he became one of Freud’s prized associates and began private practice as an analytic psychiatrist, coining the term "orgone energy" – as in the word "orgasm" and "organism" – to describe a biological energy that he said he had discovered, or re-discovered in modern times. Robert Sepehr is an author, producer, and anthropologist.
Now you know why the ruling elite uses sex and pornography to control and create a docile population.
In the 17-page motion filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia late Thursday, a lawyer for Comey says the closed-door deposition “exceeds a proper legislative purpose, is issued in violation of House rules, and unduly prejudices and harasses the witness.”
“Mr. Comey asks this Court’s intervention not to avoid giving testimony but to prevent the [two committees] from using the pert of a closed interview to peddle a distorted, partisan political narrative about the Clinton and Russian investigations through selective leaks,” Cohen wrote.
Trump sat in as elementary school students worked with their mentors to work on interpersonal skills, which Trump said are the building blocks to the future of the American workforce. Students in the elementary school are learning coding skills and have access to a wide range of technology, thanks to the partnership with Apple.
This is the latest in a series of trips Trump is taking to 20 states in order to learn more about how to better train American workers for science and math careers. Earlier this year, Trump traveled to Iowa on Cook's recommendation, where she visited a learning center that focuses on attracting high school students to STEM programs and preparing them for collegiate math and science tracks.
Bayer AG plans to cut 12,000 jobs and exit its animal health business in an effort to mollify Wall Street, which has punished the company over the tidal wave of lawsuits that came alongside the $63 billion takeover of Monsanto Co.
The German company announced a rash of moves, including exiting the sun-care and foot-care segments, that it said would boost its core pharma and agricultural businesses. The cuts, including a significant number in Germany -- where layoffs are politically sensitive -- represent about 10 percent of the workforce.
Six-year-old James is caught in a gender identity nightmare. Under his mom’s care in Dallas, Texas, James obediently lives as a trans girl named “Luna.” But given the choice when he’s with dad, he’s all boy — his sex at birth.
In their divorce proceedings, the mother has charged the father with child abuse for not affirming James as transgender, has sought restraining orders against him, and is seeking to terminate his parental rights. She is also seeking to require him to pay for the child’s visits to a transgender-affirming therapist and transgender medical alterations, which may include hormonal sterilization starting at age eight.
Walt Heyer, the author of the article grew up with a similar experience as James, was forcibly cross-dressed by his grandmother, eventually transitioned and has since reversed it and now lives again as his true gender giving talks around the country. He shares some great insight into how these trend seeking disillusioned parents are extremely dangerous.

South Carolina inmates, aided by outside civilian associates, identified and targeted military service members through social media forums and online dating websites. The prisoners, using fictitious online personas, preyed on service members to engage in online romantic relationships and then extort the service members for money.
