Twitter is planning another round of layoffs within the next week, according to a report from Bloomberg Technology, which cited sources familiar with the matter.
The San Francisco-based social media company may lay off about 300 workers, about 8 percent of its workforce, the same percentage it cut last year when co-founder Jack Dorsey took over as CEO, the Bloomberg report said.
An announcement about the job cuts may come before Twitter releases its third-quarter earnings report on Thursday, one of the sources told Bloomberg. The company declined to comment.
Via Pete's Feet Across America
A runner who once tipped the scale at 200 pounds in college finished his record-breaking run across the United States, crossing the finish line at City Hall on Monday night.
Financial analyst by day and ultra-athlete Pete Kostelnick’s started running from San Francisco to New York City on Sept. 12. His time was 42 days, 6 hours and 30 minutes, beating the previous record of 46 days, 8 hours and 36 minutes set by Frank Giannino Jr. in 1980. Though many have tried, no one had succeeded in breaking the 36-year-old record until Kostelnick.
The runner is now awaiting confirmation from Guiness World Records for the record title of “Fastest Crossing of America on Foot (male)."
Islamic extremist gunmen from neighboring Somalia killed 12 people in an attack on non-Muslims in Kenya's northern Mandera County, an official said Tuesday.
Somalia's al-Shabab rebels claimed the responsibility for the early-morning attack on the Bishaaro Guest House, saying its fighters targeted Christians, according to the group's radio station, Andalus.
The gunmen used grenades and homemade explosives to break into the guest house and then stormed in with guns, said Mohamed Saleh, Mandera's regional commander.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is calling for infants to be kept in their parents' bedroom at night for six months to a year to reduce the risk of sleep-related death. The new recommendations say babies should sleep on a separate surface, in a crib or bassinet, and never on something soft. The guidelines say babies should sleep in the same room as their parents, preferably until they're a year old. The nation's most influential pediatricians' group says it updated its safe-sleep guidance because of studies suggesting that room-sharing reduces the risk of sudden infant death syndrome by as much as 50 percent.
Estelle Schultz was born before women had the right to vote, and she's hoping she will soon see the first woman president take office.
Schultz, a 98-year-old Rockville, Maryland, resident recently cast her vote for Hillary Clinton.
"I'm very thrilled to be able to be alive at this crucial election," she told News4.
The great-grandmother said she never thought she would see the day a woman was so close to being voted into the White House. Schultz was born in 1918, two years before women across the United States got the vote in 1920.
"I think it's the most exciting thing that can happen to women anywhere, anytime," she said.

Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services.

President Barack Obama entertained Jimmy Kimmel's audience with some of the mean tweets sent his way, beginning with one sent by Donald Trump in August when he said "President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States."
Obama's reply: "Really? Well, @realDonaldTrump, at least I will go down as a president."
The president appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" during the middle of his three-day visit to Nevada and California, where he is campaigning and raising money for presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates. The segment contained a mix of humor and serious talk about the current election.

The woman known only as "Jackie" who's at the center of a discredited Rolling Stone article said in a taped deposition that she told the truth about being gang raped at the University of Virginia — as she believed it at the time, NBC News reported.
The 10 jurors in a university administrator's defamation suit against the magazine heard the woman's videotaped deposition for the first time Monday in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In the deposition, which was recorded in April, "Jackie" repeatedly answers "I don't know" to lawyers' questions about the 2014 article by Sabrina Rubin Erdely, in which she alleged that she was repeatedly assaulted at a fraternity house.
The magazine retracted the article after police said they found no evidence to corroborate it. Nicole Eramo, who was associate dean of students at the time, is seeking $7.5 million from Rolling Stone, which she says portrayed her as the villain.

Entering the last two weeks of the campaign, President Barack Obama is putting more emphasis on helping Democrats in close Senate and House races with a strategy that ties their Republican opponents to Donald Trump — regardless of whether they support the GOP nominee.
With Hillary Clinton leading in the polls, Obama said Monday that Republicans are arguing they need to provide a check on her agenda in Congress. Obama said Democrats need to recognize that would lead to more gridlock.
