The Democratic US presidential nominee is “recovering nicely” after suffering health issues during Sunday’s 9/11 memorial. The US government has voluntarily halted the construction of a portion of the Dakota oil pipeline. And 20 years after the introduction of effective medication for HIV, three people who were dying of AIDS describe the earth-shattering impact of antiretroviral drugs.

 

HERE ARE THE TOP STORIES

Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia.

Clinton struggled to walk after becoming “overheated” and “dehydrated” during New York City’s annual 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday. Hours later, her campaign said she had been diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday.

The candidate’s doctor said she’s on antibiotics and has been advised “to rest and modify her schedule.” She won't travel to California on Monday or Tuesday as originally planned, a spokesman said.

Clinton’s health has been the subject of conspiracy theories online, which have been perpetuated by the Trump campaign.

And a little extra. 

Clinton said on Saturday she regretted calling some of Donald Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” during an LGBT-focused fundraiser. She characterized half of Trump supporters as people to “empathize with” and the other half as “the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.”

The alt-right wants to professionalize.

A year ago, the alt-right was a loosely connected group of white nationalists mostly communicating online via trolling and memes. It’s still that, but now it has a logo and is holding press conferences right near the White House. It indicates that elements of the alt-right, nebulous as it is, seek to turn it into a more cohesive, professionalized movement.

 

What happens when you plan for an early death only to recover?

Twenty years after the introduction of effective medication for HIV, three people who were dying of AIDS describe the earth-shattering impact of antiretroviral drugs. BuzzFeed News’ Patrick Strudwick reports.

Their stories, which span three continents, capture not only the transformation in their health, lives, and relationships but also their relationship to life itself.

“It was like being born again. I lived life with a new vigour for everything.”

WE'RE KEEPING AN EYE ON

The US government has voluntarily halted the construction of a portion of the Dakota oil pipeline. 

A federal judge denied Friday a Native American tribe’s attempt to halt construction on part of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would transport millions of gallons of crude oil from North Dakota to Illinois each day. But the US government issued a statement Friday saying it is voluntarily stopping construction until the land under a lake near the tribe’s reservation is assessed because “important issues” raised by the tribe remain.

BuzzFeed News’ Anne Helen Petersen reports from North Dakota on what it’s like at the protest. And read Petersen’s first dispatch from the Standing Rock Tribe’s protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline here.
