POINT LOOKOUT, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island beach where people gathered and watched in horror as the distant World Trade Center towers collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001 is the site of the latest memorial to victims of the terror attacks and among a growing number that honor people who died of illnesses years after participating in the rescue and recovery effort.The monument, built by the town of Hempstead near the Atlantic Ocean on Long Island's south shore, features a twisted, 30-foot-tall beam of Trade Center steel, an elevated walkway and granite plaques engraved with the names of the nearly 3,000 people who died in the attacks.

OAKLAND, Calif. — They are all memories now, some for years, some for decades. Municipal Stadium in Kansas City was the first to go, in 1971, followed by Buffalo’s War Memorial Stadium the next year. A grotesque baseball stadium sits where Miami’s Orange Bowl once did. The Astrodome still stands, dwarfed by Houston’s newer, gigantic...
- Panel weighs governor request to move Confederate monuments

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The location of three Confederate memorials standing on North Carolina's old Capitol grounds for over a century could depend on a panel of professors and historic preservation boosters asked by the governor to move the monuments to a Civil War battle site.The North Carolina Historical Commission meets Friday to consider Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper's request to relocate the monuments to Bentonville Battlefield, which is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Raleigh. The memorials include a 75-foot-tall (23-meter-tall) obelisk remembering all of the state's Confederate dead. There are also two smaller statutes.

- Refreshed 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S is a hard-charger
By Jeff Yip, Autos Correspondent - Friday Jun 30, 2017
Whether it's a vintage '77 Targa scooting through a crowded Tokyo intersection or the latest 911 winding along Pacific Coast Highway, Porsche's signature sports car is always instantly recognizable.Porsche said Carrera S coupe owners who pop for the optional seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and Sport Chrono package can expect 0-60 mph runs in the neighborhood of 3.7 seconds, using the launch control feature.True believers who think anything but a manual gearbox in a 911 is just plain wrong will be shifting a new transmission that has been re-geared for the turbo 3-liter and features a new two-disc clutch to handle the additional torque comfortably.Porsche has made its active suspension system standard on all Carreras for 2017 and the S can be had with rear-axle steering that's standard in the 911 GT3 and GT3 RS big dogs.Besides handling improvements, the rear steer also shortens the turning radius by 1.6 feet, to 35.1.The variable-angle, extendable rear spoiler isn't just aerodynamic eye candy, but helps get more air flowing across the intercoolers, which are mounted behind the rear wheels.The 2017 Carrera S is a solid, well-mannered premium two-plus-two sports car that delivers breathtaking performance, versatility for road or track, and even stands tall (low?) when it comes to fuel efficiency.911s can be loaded with gizmos that delight.Since our Carrera S had the PDK dual-clutch transmission, the steering wheel's mode switch had a "sport response button."The concept is similar to the "war emergency power" throttle setting of some WWII fighters: the sport response activation squeezes out the maximum power, for up to 20 seconds.
