I am joining the climate strike because the world needs wilderness

Friday 10:50 GMT

I am blessed by this land every day, and I am ashamed that my kind have neglected to care for the livelihood of river otter, black bear, wolf, the smell of the desert after a rain.

The place I call home is one of red rock and prickly pear cactus, dust and juniper trees and rattlesnakes, yet it is the state with the fourth highest species diversity in the country. Here, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, I was brought up by the Chamisa desert, aspen groves, and pine forests that all so miraculously coexist.

Friday 16:20 GMT

For more than four decades Elliot Cuker has been selling classic cars from his garage in New York, but last year he hit a roadblock.

Last year, average classic car prices rose just 1%, according to a separate report by classic car index Hagerty Price Guide.

'Start Here': US joins Boeing ban, and Paul Manafort is indicted after he's sentenced

Friday 08:05 GMT

Literally minutes after Paul Manafort was sentenced by a federal judge to an additional three-and-a-half years in prison, new charges were announced in New York against Trump's former campaign chairman.

Satellite tracking data and evidence from the debris field convinced the Federal Aviation Administration, which initially resisted a ban, to ground U.S. fleets, the agency said Wednesday. Two black boxes recovered from the crash site in Ethiopia were sent to France for examination, which should confirm "whether or not something's wrong with this aircraft," ABC News Senior Transportation Correspondent David Kerley says on "Start Here."

Friday 16:21 GMT

Construction workers jostled with schoolchildren for what has become a business phenomenon: the hefty, cheesy slab of indulgence known as the French taco.

The French taco, which bears little resemblance to anything Mexican, is a cross between a grilled panini, wrap and kebab, with everything sealed inside a vast rectangular parcel – fries included. There is often a pile-up of different meats jostling together, such as chicken nuggets and merguez sausage, and several sauces.
