    By MIKE CATALINI, Associated Press TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — More than 1 million people have cast ballots already in New Jersey, or about 30% of the turnout in the 2016 presidential election, according to state elections officials. The turnout is a result of the state holding its first-ever mostly mail-in election, and election experts say it could be headed for 2008 levels when 73% of registered voters in New Jersey cast a ballot. “We no longer have an Election Day. We simply have an election," said Ben Dworkin the director of the Rowan Institute for Public Policy & Citizenship. “Voters are taking advantage of that opportunity because they got the ballot in the mail and that’s why we’re seeing this surge of voters." Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy cited COVID-19 when he signed an order in August calling for all active registered voters to get a ballot in the mail. State...

    China's economy is seeing its fastest growth this year as Chinese firms grab market share from rivals struggling during the pandemic.   After wrestling the world's first outbreak to the ground in January and February, China has kept Covid-19 cases to a minimum and won praise from the WHO for its handling of the pandemic.  Since then, Chinese firms have taken advantage of their good fortune while their global rivals grapple with reduced manufacturing capacity.    Chinese factory activity has already picked up while exports from the world's second-largest economy rose 9.9 per cent in September from a year earlier.  Imports grew at their fastest pace this year, surging 13.2 per cent after a fall of 2.1 per cent in August and beating expectations of a slight 0.3 per cent rise.  People arrive at Beijing's railway station last week as more than 600million Chinese people travelled during the eight-day Golden Week...
    Chicago has seen a rise in murder cases, not just compared to the previous year but compared to the previous four years, according to figures released by the Chicago Police Department. The CPD regularly posts statistics about crime in the city, both week to week and year to year. A look at recent stats shows that murder has risen in the city, doubling in the first week of October from the previous week with 15 murders, and the city is on track to hit around double the number of murders compared to 2019. That trend extends beyond just the one-year comparison, though: 2020 has seen the most number of murders over the past five years, with 596 murders so far. A Chicago Tribune report from Oct. 9 puts that number at 605, with a 5 Chicago report adding another four from the weekend. CHICAGO MAYOR BLAMES TRUMP FOR PLOT AGAINST MICHIGAN GOV. WHITMER...

Travel data company, Cirium, found that 43 commercial airlines have failed since January this year, compared to 46 in the whole of 2019 and 56 in all of 2018. A failed airline is one that has completely ceased or suspended operations, according to Cirium's definition. "Without government intervention and support we would have had mass bankruptcies in the first six months of this crisis. Instead, we have had a manageable number of bankruptcies and very few collapses," said Brendan Sobie, an independent analyst at Sobie Aviation. Sobie said...
