The FBI Reopens Its Case Into Clinton's Emails, and 4 Other Stories to Know Oct. 28

  • Here we go again. Just 11 days before the election, FBI Director James Comey announced that the department found new emails on Hillary Clinton's private server "pertinent" to its investigation. While the FBI had previously closed its investigation into Clinton's emails, it will review the new batch of emails.
  • A war is brewing between two music industry giants. Kid Cudi just fired back at Drake after the Canadian rapper apparently dissed Cudi in a new song called "Two Birds, One Stone." "You were the man on the moon, now you go through your phases," sings Drake, which many thought was a dig at Cudi for recently checking himself into rehab for depression. Cudi, in response, took to Twitter and challenged Drake to insult him to his face.
  • The fight over the North Dakota Access Pipeline is getting ugly. Nearly 150 activists and Native Americans were arrested as police entered the private land to remove demonstrators protesting the oil pipeline that would run through their land. When the protesters refused to leave, police used pepper spray and fired bean bag rounds on them.
  • Good news for penguins and polar bears: Antarctica's Ross Sea will become the world's largest marine protected area. Introduced by New Zealand and the United States and signed by 24 other countries, a new pact puts limits on human activities like fishing in the area. The size of the protected area is about the same size as Alaska, or 600,000 square miles.
  • Ammon Bundy and six other men who were famously arrested while occupying federal land in February of this year were acquitted. The group was protesting the government's public land policies, and the Bundy family has a long history of defying federal land laws. Ammon's father is notorious for his 20-year battle with the Bureau of Land Management over grazing fees. It's doubtful the Bundys' fight will end here.
