"You're information station. The Department of Justice told former president Trump's legal team what they thought about his legal team's request for the Supreme Court to get involved in the battle over those classified documents that were seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate in August. ABC chief justice correspondent Peter Thomas reports from Washington D.C.. The Justice Department is saying those 100 classified documents recovered at Mar-a-Lago should not be reviewed by a special master. DoJ says Trump has no right to the documents and therefore can make no claims of privilege of any kind and DoJ says so far, Trump has never said in any court proceeding or filing that the declassified documents are his. Team Trump gets to respond in a few days, then the Supreme Court will make a decision, unclear how long that will take. Here we go again, the prospects of a rail worker strike in the United States are very much back in the cards. Rachel lerman is covering it for The Washington Post and spoke with northwestern's radios, Bill O'Neill. Rachel, we all thought this was resolved some weeks back. What's gone wrong here? Yeah, that's right. So they came up with a tentative agreement basically between the unions and the rail carriers and that averted that strike that we were really afraid of in September that could have, you know, really just hobbled the supply chain and affected passenger trains. But that deal still needs to be ratified by all of the unions. Now about four unions have already approved it. Another one has renegotiated another tentative deal. But it's just today the third largest railroad union, the brotherhood of maintenance of way employees division actually rejected this deal. So if they rejected, does that mean across the board this is not a done deal? Basically, it means that at least this one union has to go back to the carriers and try to negotiate a different deal that they think is more likely that their members will pass. They do have a little bit of time to do that. They basically said that there's no imminent fear of a strike at least until November 19th and they're going to continue negotiations. So we have a little bit of time here, but it does mean that something's going to have to change. And that being said, the two largest railroad unions also have not approved this yet. They are set to vote either later this month or early next month. And of course, all of those concerns, as you mentioned earlier that existed the last time that we spoke about this, rising prices, the late deliveries, commuters not being able to get from point a to point B those all are still very real, aren't they? So very real. And you have to think too that we're heading into the holiday shopping season. When of course the supply chain is already working at kind of as hard as people are buying online and then shipping is going full force. So as we head into this another fear of a strike is certainly going to get a lot of parties involved. I mean, last time we saw The White House get directly involved in this and the atmosphere of the strike is renewed. Yeah, of course this is a very tough spot for the Biden administration, especially in an election year. I mean, you have the American people. They're not going to be happy if they suddenly start to see empty shelves at the store, but stepping in and telling these rail workers they can't strike if they were to do that, that puts The White House in the position of alienating union workers. The other thing too is that Biden has said that he wants to be kind of like the most pro labor president and American history. So he's stuck his neck out there saying that this is a priority for the administration. And we got a statement from The White House today basically saying that by then remains focused on avoiding a real shutdown, but we don't know exactly what that's going to look like at this point. We'll be watching it as the days and weeks go by. That's Rachel luhrmann read much more online go to Washington Post dot com. That's northwest news radio's Bill O'Neal.

The down industrials managed 36 point game, but the S&P 500 lost 23 points and the NASDAQ composite slid 1.1%. TikTok appears to be deepening its foray into ecommerce with plans to operate its own U.S. warehouses, the kind of packing and shipping facilities, more associated with Amazon or Walmart. In the past two weeks, the short video platform has posted several job listings for candidates to help it develop and grow its fulfillment by TikTok shop in the U.S.. With the Amazon Prime early access sale off and running plus competing sales at target in Walmart, you might think all was well on the retail world, but while black October may have begun and say there are still concerns about transport delays and labor shortages that could cause some problems.

A local fire department says that yes, there is space here for one more, but as northwest news radio's Brian Calvert tells us, they didn't get an additional firefighter out of the deal. No, they got a pat. Let me explain. Not too long ago, personnel at Graham fire and rescue station 96 added a new resident on the grounds. It's furry body and fast speed seemed to make it a great addition to the team. Not the team in the firehouse, but the team outside, on the acreage surrounding, said firehouse. Once inside the yard it was still sheepishly hard to tell whether this was a boy or a girl, a ram, or a U hence the nickname pat, as that seemed to work in either case. Flash forward a couple of months ago. And no one has come forward to claim pat. Mind you, pat, is not alone. You see, I neglected to tell you that station 96 has

"Comes to abortion. Now false and misleading information is spreading online and researchers fear the situation will only get worse. Rachel lerman has been taking a closer look for The Washington Post and spoke with Bill O'Neill. Rachel, who was spreading this misinformation of what kind of things are they saying? Well, we're thinking from a lot of different places. We're seeing anti abortion activists spreading information about the supposed dangers of medication abortion and other types of abortion. In reality, the doctors that we spoke to say that abortion is actually safer than childbirth and pregnancy. And then we're also seeing some misinformation come from abortion rights advocates who are saying, you know, if you want to be able to self manage your abortion, you could try these methods, but not all of those are safe. And obviously, that's why it's so concerning, right? That's why it's so concerning. So for example, we're seeing people who want to help others get access to abortion, but they're suggesting that they use certain herbs and calling it herbal abortions and saying that they can manage it at home. But we talked to medical experts as they say, that's not safe. You know, you really need to talk to a doctor. This is not the way to go about this. And so there's some well intentioned perhaps posts out there trying to help people that they support. But they can be quite misleading. And sometimes harmful. Now, what if anything can be done to counter any of this? Well, as we know, misinformation and disinformation spreads really quickly on the Internet, especially on social media sites. The major companies, you know, Twitter and Facebook, Instagram and TikTok say that they're keeping an eye on this. That they that they allow discussion of abortion, but try to keep off the kind of like the lies about it or the misleading information about it. But it's really hard for them to keep all of it off because so many people post so often on these sites. And of course, we know these big tech companies their track record and other controversial issues has not been great either in terms of being able to shut down questionable content. Yeah, that's right. So we saw that, I think, a really good recent example is obviously during the early months, especially of the COVID pandemic. We saw so much misinformation, medical misinformation, spreading on these sites. And they did all of the companies did kind of spin up a task forces and teams to work on this. But we still saw a lot of this misleading information get through. So what does that mean for the person reading all of this online? Is it sort of buyer beware at this point? Yeah, exactly. So the researchers are concerned that since abortion is in the news so much and people have such kind of conflicting views about it or use the conflict with each other about it. They're worried that it's going to get worse. So, you know, they say the best thing to do is just to make sure you're checking your sources, go to official public health organizations and make sure that you're kind of doing your homework.

"Is giving Ukraine another $322 million to help fight Russia ABC's Marcus Moore reports French president Emmanuel Macron was able to hold off a challenge from far right nationalist Marin le pen with her anti immigration and anti NATO policies and ties to Russia there was a real fear that a le pen victory would upend European unity and the fight to save Ukraine but instead Macron after a tight race was able to win a decisive 59% of the vote overnight President Biden tweeting his congratulations noting France as a key partner in addressing global challenges and saying he looks forward to our continued close cooperation The German Chancellor describing Macron's victory as a quote vote of confidence in Europe while here in Paris Macron's supporters telling me they do feel a real sense of relief even though we did see some protests here overnight as was expected but le pen really did put the world on notice appealing to voters here with her populist policies earning 41% of the vote That is the best finish by the far right ever in a French election in le pen says that in and of itself is a victory What would you buy with $44 million Well if your Elon Musk you buy Twitter Rachel luhrmann is covering it for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van zeiss Rachel what can you tell us about the details of this deal to buy Twitter Yeah So you know Elon Musk put in this bed a little bit more than a week ago and at first it seemed like Twitter's board was going to reject it But after he kind of outlined how he would pay for the deal they announced it today So as soon as it gets finalized he's going to be in control of Twitter And as you report these negotiations started yesterday lasted into at least the morning hours today Does anybody really know other than the signatories on this deal when this would close You know it's hard to say because it depends if regulators need to get involved at all It shouldn't be a super long close That company is saying it's going to close some time this year but it's unclear exactly how long it will take What about what changes for Twitter once Elon Musk signs his name on the dotted line Do we know how he wants to change the company Kind of a $1 million question Elon Musk has said that he really wants to promote free speech that believe that if tweets are kind of exist in a gray area then he would lean toward keeping them up online That's got some critics concerned about how much content moderation he might potentially walk back but he also said that he didn't have all the answers for what that would look like And he hasn't announced any firm plans on it It's interesting to note though that he's not going to be just an owner he's also a massive content provider with 83 million followers A lot of those followers have been interested in his other projects like Tesla SpaceX The Boring Company Do we know if he's going to take a more hands off role at those other ventures Good question It does seem like he like many billionaires we're seeing these days He's very interested in space and Tesla has been kind of his baby for a long time So I think it's sort of unlikely that he's going to step back from Tesla and SpaceX But as you know he has a lot going on So it kind of depends how involved he decides to get in Twitter Will he just be an owner Will he be an executive We're not sure yet Some people really didn't want him to buy Twitter though and there was that poison pill strategy that would cut other investors something of a deal so they could buy shares at a lower price and stave off a Musk buyout What ended up killing that plan or is that not released yet Yeah so the poison pill was sort of a way for the board to make it more difficult for Musk to buy Twitter but once he came out with this financing plan that said oh I'm going to get loans for the roughly half of the deal and then I'm going to use my own equity to finance the other half It seemed to lend some credibility to it So we think that might be one of the impetuses for the board reconsidering or kind of taking another look at the offer Elon Musk will own Twitter if this is all approved and pushed through and reporting on this in The Washington Post is Rachel luhrmann who's joining us on northwest news radio Rachel thank you That's Taylor van seiss Your stock charts dot com money update on northwest news radio The

during the pandemic Denise Whitaker got some expert advice on how to lose it Steven perron executive director for AARP magazine says it really comes down to when you're eating protein He tells me the average American dinner is filled with more protein than our bodies can process And that's a very unhelpful way to eat because our bodies need about 25 to 30 grams of protein at any given time once we're in mid life In order to make and hold on to muscle Parin tells me the average American needs to spread those proteins out throughout the day He said they tried this with a panel of 100 volunteers Over the course of 12 weeks he says some of those volunteers lost as many as 12 pounds It's easy He says to add protein to a meal too for instance if you're someone who likes to have oatmeal with breakfast that's a great choice Don't give it up but he says add some Greek yogurt a protein smoothie or some cottage cheese that you're getting protein in with that fiber A top
