‘Start Here’: Pelosi, Whitaker, caravan. What you need to know to start your day.

It’s Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018. Thanks for choosing to start here. 1. Senate Democrats sue to block Whitaker’s appointment Three Senate Democrats have filed a lawsuit challenging the appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Sens. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, all of whom sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, are arguing that because Whitaker was never confirmed by the Senate, President Donald Trump violated the Constitution’s Appointments Clause in naming him to oversee the Department of Justice and the Russia investigation. Whitaker has been openly critical of special counsel Robert Mueller in the past, at one point suggesting the Russia investigation could become a “witch hunt” and sayin...

Amy Winehouse’s pal releases previously unseen photos of late singer: ‘They’ve been in my closet for almost a decade’

Photographer Blake Wood has released a new book dedicated to his friend, late singer Amy Winehouse. (Blake Wood) The world knew of Amy Winehouse’s tumultuous marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil, the Sid to her Nancy — but the British soul singer had a little-known relationship with another Blake. Blake Wood was a 22-year-old photographer from Vermont when he moved to London in 2008 and met the Grammy winner through mutual friend Kelly Osbourne. The two became inseparable until Winehouse’s death at age 27 in 2011 from alcohol poisoning. Earlier this year, Wood published a book simply titled “Amy Winehouse,” a collection of previously unseen personal photos taken during their time together in London, Paris and Saint Lucia. The rare images aim to capture a lighter side of Winehouse, who is often ...

Disney’s new ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ roller coaster will be a ‘storytelling’ ride, break records for size

The forthcoming Marvel adventure at Walt Disney World will be a “storytelling coaster,” meaning it’s more immersive than the average thrill ride. (Disney) Disney World is turning your idea of a roller coaster on its side — somewhat literally. Details revealed at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2018 confirm Disney’s new “Guardians of the Galaxy” coaster won’t just set Walt Disney World records for its size, but break innovative boundaries for all rides. Touted as a one-of-a-kind experience, the forthcoming Marvel adventure at Walt Disney World will be a “storytelling coaster.” That means it isn’t a thrill ride like Space Mountain or a dark ride like Frozen Ever After, but a hybrid of both. Each four-seat ride vehicle will be programmed to orientate riders towards differ...

Airbnb: Israeli uproar as firm bars West Bank settlements

Image copyright Getty Images Israel has denounced as “shameful and unfortunate” Airbnb’s decision to pull its listings from homes in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. Its tourism minister said Israeli authorities would back legal challenges lodged by settlers against the US firm. Airbnb said it had made the decision because settlements were “at the core” of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The move, which affects 200 listings, has been widely praised by Palestinians and their supporters. Jewish settlements in territory occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this. Can settlement issue be solved? Israel advances plans for 1,000 new West Bank settler homes Human Rights Wa...

Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionTrump and the facts about the migrant caravan A US federal judge has blocked an order issued by President Trump to deny asylum to migrants crossing the southern US border illegally.
