Salman Rushdie's recovery is "headed in the right direction," his agent told The New York Times Sunday. Rushdie was stabbed 10 times in an attack reports say may be linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps. Rushdie was attacked Friday as he took the stage to give a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution in New York. "The road to recovery has begun," Andrew Wylie, Rushdie's literary agent, said in a text message to The New York Times. "A 24-year-old born in the United States did not come up with Salman Rushdie as a target on his own," a Middle Eastern intelligence official told VICE World News.

George Conway said the DOJ's probe of documents found at Mar-a-Lago could land Trump in jail. On CNN, Conway called the probe the "shortest distance between Trump and an orange jumpsuit." "I think the shortest distance between Donald Trump and an orange jumpsuit is this investigation with the documents," Conway said. When asked by Acosta why he thought Trump was holding on to those documents, Conway suggested there was "no valid reason." In a separate interview on CNN on Saturday, Conway also slammed those defending Trump, calling them "basically desperate."

Hong Kong (CNN Business) China's central bank cut interest rates on Monday as new data showed the economy losing steam last month because of renewed Covid lockdowns and a deepening property downturn. The People's Bank of China reduced the main rate at which it provides short-term liquidity to banks, from 2.1% to 2%. The central bank also cut the rate of its one-year lending facility from 2.85% to 2.75% in order to "maintain reasonable and sufficient liquidity in the banking system," it said in a statement. It was the first time since January that those rates had been cut. The move took investors by surprise.

REUTERS/Marco Bello/File PhotoWASHINGTON, Aug 14 (Reuters) - The FBI and U.S Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have warned law enforcement agencies of an increase in threats following a search of former President Donald Trump's Florida home last week. "The FBI and DHS have observed an increase in threats to federal law enforcement and, to a lesser extent, other law enforcement and government officials following the FBI's recent execution of a search warrant in Palm Beach, Florida," the bulletin said, according to a CBS report. U.S. agencies have identified "multiple articulated threats and calls for the targeted killing of judicial, law enforcement, and government officials associated with the Palm Beach search, including the federal judge who approved the Palm Beach search warrant." read moreThe FBI declined to confirm the existence of the bulletin on Sunday, but said "The FBI is always concerned about violence and threats of violence to law enforcement." Let’s be clear: this is the direct result of irresponsible, inflammatory rhetoric demonizing law enforcement from right-wing politicians and commentators."

Donald Trump arrives at Trump Tower the day after FBI agents raided his Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach home, in New York City, U.S., August 9, 2022. A search warrant released last week after the unprecedented search showed that Trump had 11 sets of classified documents at his home, and that the Justice Department had probable cause to conduct the search based on possible Espionage Act violations. "The Justice Department should "show that this was not just a fishing expedition, that they had due cause to go in and to do this, that they did exhaust all other means," Rounds said. The Department of Justice did respond to a request for comment on the FBI affidavit. "This is going to be up to the Justice Department to make a decision about what happened here, why it happened, and if it rises to the level of a crime," Klobuchar said.

REUTERS/David 'Dee' DelgadoWASHINGTON, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Republicans stepped up calls on Sunday for the release of an FBI affidavit showing the underlying justification for its seizure of documents at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. A search warrant released last week after the unprecedented search showed that Trump had 11 sets of classified documents at his home, and that the Justice Department had probable cause to conduct the search based on possible Espionage Act violations. "The Justice Department should "show that this was not just a fishing expedition, that they had due cause to go in and to do this, that they did exhaust all other means," Rounds said. He said it was "most disturbing" that Trump continued to hold the classified documents after the Justice Department sought their return.

A former DOJ official who oversaw Hillary Clinton's emails said documents retrieved at Mar-a-Lago were "egregious." FBI agents found Trump with 11 sets of highly sensitive government information. On Monday, the FBI searched former President Donald Trump's Palm Beach, Florida, home and seized 11 sets of classified documents from the former president. The release of Top Secret information can cause "exceptionally grave damage" to national security, according to Executive Order 13526. Laufman also said the discovery of the documents during the FBI's search "completely validates the government's investigation" into the former President.

In Nevada's Lake Mead, four sets of humans remains have been found since May. Water levels have plunged 150 feet since 2000, according to the Southern Nevada Power Authority. From World War II-era ships and bombs to skeletons recovered near Sin City, unexpected discoveries continue to be unearthed by climate change-fueled droughts. The lake's depths hide a B-29 bomber used in World War II. More recently, in late July, the drought-stricken Italian river revealed a previously submerged 1,000-pound bomb from World War II.

Liz Cheney will continue her fight against Trump even if she loses her Wyoming primary on Tuesday. "We'll see what happens, but I don't think she's gone by any means. Though if Cheney loses, she is widely expected to stay in the spotlight and continue her fight to rid the Republican Party of Trump. Some are floating possibilities like a presidential candidacy or a top post in a future Republican administration. I think Cheney would be a great opportunity to bridge the gap between Democrats, Republicans, independents."

Now, ironically, Robinhood may need to join forces with one of the very titans of Wall Street that the stock and crypto trading company was trying to unseat. Robinhood competes with Wall Street giants like Fidelity,, which also owns TD Ameritrade, and E-Trade parent. (Coinbase, incidentally, got a recent boost after announcing a partnership with Wall Street giant BlackRock.) Wall Street will also be paying attention to the government's latest reading on retail sales for July. Retail sales rose 1% from May, but economists surveyed by Reuters are expecting retail sales to climb just 0.2% from June to July.

Facebook's evolving approach to encryptionMeta's mobile messaging platform WhatsApp already offers default end-to-end encryption, as well as encrypted backups of users' messages. The company said it would only be able to see encrypted messages in live conversations if users report them, for example, over harassment concerns. Other messaging apps such as Signal do offer end-to-end encryption by default, while Telegram allows users to opt in. While iMessage is end-to-end encrypted by default, message backups to iCloud may not be , and the key to decrypt those messages is also stored on iCloud. In general, she said, the ideal would be using a messaging platform that is end-to-end encrypted by default.

(CNN) Children are among at least 41 people killed, and 14 injured after a fire broke out at a church in Giza's Imbaba neighborhood in greater Cairo on Sunday, according to a spokesperson for the Egyptian Coptic Church citing health officials. It is unclear how many children were killed in the fire at at Abu Sefein church, but it was crowded with worshippers attending Sunday mass, Coptic Church spokesperson Archpriest Moussa Ibrahim said. At least two officers and three civil protection service members were injured responding to the fire, Egypt's interior ministry announced in a Facebook post. The statement added that the fire started around 9 a.m. local time and was caused by an electrical failure in an air conditioning unit on the church's second floor. Most of the deaths and injuries were caused by smoke inside church classrooms after the electric failure, the interior ministry said.

Asa Hutchinson says that fellow GOP members need to "pull back on casting judgment" on the FBI after the agency's search of former president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate for classified documents. "Well, if the GOP is going to be the party of supporting law enforcement, law enforcement includes the FBI," Hutchinson responded. "As a United States attorney, I work with the FBI, the DEA, the federal law enforcement agencies. "Let's support law enforcement. Whether it's the DEA, the FBI, or your local law enforcement," he added."

(CNN) By spawning the acclaimed "Better Call Saul," "Breaking Bad" achieved a bit of spinoff immortality that eluded "Friends" ("Joey"), "MASH" ("AfterMASH") and "The Golden Girls" ("The Golden Palace"), among others. As the prequel nears its end, it's worth considering how the original series' Emmy-winning legacy cooked up one of the best TV offshoots since "Cheers" begat "Frasier." Introduced in 2008, "Breaking Bad" made its debut the year after "Mad Men" put AMC on the map as a home for prestige storytelling. Perhaps foremost, "Breaking Bad" -- which presented the evolution of high-school chemistry teacher Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston), faced with a terminal diagnosis, into a criminal mastermind -- became one of the most unpredictable series TV has ever produced. Creator Vince Gilligan and his team consistently wrote themselves into seemingly inescapable corners, before revealing some plausible and usually ingenious way out.

In one pivotal scene in "Evil's" third season, David, the Catholic priest, takes the skeptic psychologist Kristen aside to repair a rift. "I come from a Catholic family," says Robert King, who says he believes in personal evil and demons.

Its hero is a devout Catholic priest, and it mostly portrays members of the Catholic Church as good, well-intentioned people. That's good.

(CNN) FBI testing of the gun used in the fatal shooting on the movie set of "Rust" found that the weapon handled by actor Alec Baldwin could not be fired without pulling the trigger while the gun was cocked, according to a newly released forensics report. In December, Baldwin told ABC News he never pulled the trigger of the gun that shot Hutchins. I didn't pull the trigger," Baldwin said. Baldwin, in that interview, also described cocking the gun as he talked through the scene with Hutchins. Cocking a revolver pistol like the one used on the movie set involves pulling the hammer of the gun back to prepare the weapon to fire.

(CNN) The latest extension of "The Walking Dead" "universe," if you can really call it that, "Tales of the Walking Dead" possesses the chance to explore and play with this world-gone-mad scenario, but mostly squanders it. Telling a self-contained story in each hour, think of it as a zombie-fied bonus effort that doesn't kill much more than time. The four episodes previewed from this six-episode anthology showcase a variety of tones and, thanks to the in-and-out requirement, the ability to attract interesting actors. After that, these tales offer a mixed bag, both qualitatively and stylistically. It's as if someone said zombie stories aren't overdone enough, let's toss in more overused sci-fi time-bending conceits for good measure.
