Millions of Americans are using DNA test kits sold online to research their ancestry, either out of simple curiosity or to find answers about their identity.

10/20/2018 02:33 PM Novartis drug cut death risk by 35 percent in gene mutation breast cancer
The Swiss drugmaker's BYL719, a so-called PI3K inhibitor also known as alpelisib, combined with hormone therapy fulvestrant boosted median progression-free survival (PFS) to 11 months, up from 5.7 months for patients who got only hormone therapy, the company said on Saturday.

10/20/2018 05:00 PM This fifth grader's baked potato costume is better than whatever you've planned for Halloween
This is One Good Thing , a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week. Halloween is fast approaching and while you may think your planned costume's impressive, there's a very good chance it won't top this fifth grader who dressed as a baked potato. Reddit user seal2781, a 24-year-old named Celia, recently shared a throwback Halloween picture from 2004 — the year she followed her heart and dressed as a baked potato wrapped in foil with a li'l pat of butter on top. Precious! Delicious! All around wholesome! The costume is one of the closest things we've seen to absolute Halloween perfection, and the kind of ensemble we should all strive to put together this time of year. If you're having doubts about how great it is, we're not exaggerating. See for yourself... SEE ALSO: This Kevin from 'The Office' Halloween costume for babies needs to exist IRL Celia told Mashable via Reddit that she fashioned the wearable baked potato for her elementary school Halloween costume contest. The costume won first prize and for that, she received a whole $5! "The day before the contest I decided I wanted to be a baked potato," she wrote. "I'm not really sure why — I just thought it would be funny." She says her dad Ron helped make the costume out of cardboard boxes. "We covered the boxes in wide plastic wrap to hold it all together, and then covered it in foil and added the fluff and brown paper 'skin.' The pad of butter was just a small pizza box covered in yellow cellophane paper." The baked potato has everything you'd want from a good costume. The homemade aspect shows off your resourceful side, it'll give people a good laugh, and you'll also stand out from a crowd of store bought superheroes, princesses, and more. Though it does have one downfall... "The main thing I remember about the costume was how hot it was. I really felt like a baked potato wearing it," Celia said. But still, an overall success. Celia's family has been cranking out next-level costumes for years, she explained, recalling her brother's most memorable ensemble: a massive five-foot tall baseball bat. Stunning.

10/20/2018 07:20 PM Counting under way in Afghan poll marred by deadly violence, chaos
Afghan election workers began counting votes on Saturday following a partial legislative ballot tarnished by scores of deadly militant attacks, technical glitches and administrative chaos. Nearly 170 people -- civilians and security forces -- were killed or wounded in election-related violence, official figures showed, and there are fears of more bloodshed when voting resumes Sunday in 401 polling centres. "Inevitable" problems with biometric verification devices, which were introduced at the eleventh hour, as well as missing voter registration lists and lack of staffing delayed or even prevented voting at those polling sites, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) told reporters.

10/20/2018 04:45 AM Royal tour: Duke and Duchess of Sussex unveil Sydney's Anzac memorial
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have paid tribute to Australia’s war dead as they attended the unveiling of an Anzac memorial 84 years in the making. The Anzac Memorial in Sydney’s Hyde Park, which commemorates the sacrifices made by those who served for Australia and New Zealand, was designed in the 1930s by Bruce Dellitt. But following the Great Depression, the finances were not available to make Mr Dellitt's vision - including a four-tier cascading waterfall on the Liverpool Street side of the monument - a reality. The Duke, wearing the tropical dress of his regiment, the Blues and Royals, with medals, KCVO and sword, and Duchess, wearing an Emilia Wickstead dress and Philip Tracey hat, were met by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Premier of New South Wales Gladys Berejiklian and David Elliott, minister for Veterans Affairs on an overcast Sydney morning. There were also crowds along Liverpool Street, while more people - and a cardboard cutout of Harry and Meghan - watched on from balconies as the royals arrived. Harry and Meghan arrive for the unveiling ceremony with the governor of New South Wales and his wife Credit: Ryan Pierce/Getty Images Twins Krystal and Sienna Dawson presented the royal couple with a medallion and a painting during the visit. The girls, aged nine, are from the Koomurri Aboriginal Dance Troupe and both said they were nervous about meeting and performing for Harry and Meghan. Krystal, who did an Aboriginal art floral painting, said: "They said hi and 'nice to meet you'." The medallion, presented by Sienna, said "play the game", the motto of the Beverly Hills public school which they attend. Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal tour of Australia - in pictures She said: "I didn't want to dance at first, but then it was fun." The Sussexes will visit the Hall Of Service, which contains 1,700 soil samples from each town, suburb and district in New South Wales listed as an address for First World War enlistees. The completion of the extension, which cost £22 million, coincides with the 100th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities in the war.

Israel ordered the country's goods and people border crossings with Gaza to be opened on Sunday, just four days after shuttering them following a Palestinian rocket attack that sparked retaliatory air strikes. The move followed efforts to prevent an escalation in violence that has raised fears of a new war between Israel and the Palestinian territory's Islamist rulers Hamas. "The decision comes after a decrease in the violent events in Gaza over the weekend and efforts Hamas made to restrain" demonstrators, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman's office said in a statement.

Many members of the caravan, exhausted from the hours-long trek on foot from the Guatemalan border, mostly ignored police offers to board buses heading to a migrant shelter because of suspicions they might be deported instead. The migrants have defied threats by Trump that he will close the U.S.-Mexico border if the caravan advances, as well as warnings from the Mexican government that they risk deportation if they cannot justify seeking asylum in Mexico. Police in riot gear shadowed the caravan's arrival along a southern highway, but did not impede their journey.

10/21/2018 02:11 AM Government under pressure to use Salisbury sanctions against Saudi officials after Khashoggi killing
Saudi officials found to have been involved in the killing of a prominent journalist in Turkey should be targeted by new sanctions introduced by Theresa May in the wake of the Salisbury attack, MPs and campaigners said on Saturday. Andrew Mitchell, the former international development secretary, led calls for the Magnitsky law, which mirrors similar legislation in the US and Canada, to be used against any individuals complicit in the death of Jamal Khashoggi. The intervention came as the government said it was "considering ... our next steps" after the kingdom admitted on Friday night that Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, was killed in its consulate in Istanbul. Donald Trump said sanctions were a possibility and that questions remained about the Saudi handling of Khashoggi's death. "No, I am not satisfied until we find the answer," he said after a campaign speech in Nevada. "But it was a big first step, it was a good first step. But I want to get to the answer." However, he warned against scrapping an arms deal with the kingdom that would jeopardise thousands of American jobs. Saudi Arabia said that 15 members of an intelligence squad who flew to Istanbul to kidnap Mr Khashoggi had been arrested, along with three Saudi consulate staff. General Ahmed al-Assiri, the deputy intelligence chief, and Saud al-Qahtani, a close aide to Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince, were both sacked for their role in the operation. Saudi officials insisted Crown Prince Mohammed was not involved. Jamal Khashoggi death | The unanswered questions The kingdom said Mr Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi critic, died in a "fist fight" but Turkey said it would keep investigating and would not a allow a cover up. The Magnitsky law, which was passed as part of the Sanctions Act in May, allows the government to target human rights abusers with asset freezes and visa bans. Mr Mitchell, the former international development secretary, who lobbied Mrs May to introduce the measure after Russia's chemical weapons attack on a former spy in Salisbury, said: "The Magnitsky law is designed to stop human rights violators coming to and using Britain and it doesn't matter where they come from, the law should be applied without fear or favour. "It's very important that Britain acts in concert with its friends and allies around the world." Robert Lacey: What next for the House of Saud? Bill Browder, whose campaigning led to the adoption of equivalent legislation in the US, Canada, and several EU countries, told The Sunday Telegraph: “The extrajudicial killing of Jamal Khashoggi and the official cover-up is exactly the kind of situation that Magnitsky sanctions were designed to address. “The British government should use the Magnitsky Act against members of the Saudi regime who played any role in this murder." Saudi Arabia's official explanation of a brawl was greeted with scepticism around the world. Germany, France and the European Union all urged an in-depth investigation to find out what happened to the Washington Post columnist after he entered the consulate on October 2 for documents for his marriage. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, in a joint statement with her foreign minister, said the Saudi explanation was not enough. "We expect transparency from Saudi Arabia about the circumstances of his death ... The information available about events in the Istanbul consulate is inadequate," the Germans said
