President Obama used his final appearance before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday to deliver the kind of speech a troubled world needed to hear. It was a sober yet encouraging assessment of the fast-moving trend toward an integrated world - coupled with a necessary call for reform.
Dani Dayan is articulate and charming, a lively and provocative conversationalist. An immigrant from Argentina and a Spanish speaker, he is an Israeli settler from the West Bank, and the controversial former head of the settler movement. Mr. Dayan is also a fervent opponent of a Palestinian state and believes Israel has a historic claim to the West Bank.
Turkey is making a full-court press to get the United States to extradite Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim cleric who has lived in exile in Pennsylvania for nearly 20 years and is accused by the government of masterminding the July 15 aborted coup.
After more than two years and over $7 million, the eighth investigation into the Benghazi attacks has finally issued its report, the culmination of a massive wasted effort that can only be seen as a Republican political vendetta against Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
You had to know it was coming. Having set a new standard for crass and ugly political discourse, Donald Trump was always going to bring up poor Vince Foster's suicide. And it was suicide, regardless of the 20-year-old lies that Mr. Trump is resurrecting in his scorched-earth quest for the White House.
One of Mr. Trump's latest contributions to the 2016 presidential contest is an offer to talk with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator who keeps 25 million people enslaved and commands an arsenal that some experts say could have more than 20 nuclear weapons by the end of this year.
For a guy at the center of an international diplomatic incident, Jan Böhmermann is pretty self-effacing and modest. Funny, for sure, since comedy and satire are his profession. But also thoughtful and intellectual, as well as bemused that a performance on his weekly TV show has triggered a court case and raised the ire of Turkey's leader.
An influential congressional committee has taken another step towards sanity and equality in military policy by voting to require women to register with the Selective Service, making them eligible for the draft if another one ever is required.

The leaders of the independent commission that investigated the 9/11 attacks, former Governor Tom Kean of New Jersey and former Representative Lee Hamilton of Indiana, carried out that highly sensitive task with integrity and rigor.
International humanitarian law, which the United States helped establish, prohibits deliberate attacks on civilians and indiscriminate attacks, which do not distinguish between military targets and civilians. Belkis Wille, a researcher for Human Rights Watch who focuses on Yemen and researched the incident, told The Times that the Americans may not have known the Saudis would use the weapons against civilians when the bombs were sold.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
