The debate, which is in St. Louis, Missouri, will last 90 minutes and be conducted in a “town hall” format featuring questions from undecided voters, moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz. And there will likely be a whole lot of discussion about Donald Trump’s leaked tape scandal, which broke Friday afternoon.
You probably won’t have a hard time tracking down the debate on television, since most major networks and news channels — CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, Univision, CNBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN, and a few more — will air the debate live.
Online streams will be plentiful too, and we’ll embed one in this post when it’s available. Details via VOX.
Hillary Clinton Awaits Debate As Donald Trump's Campaign Burns TIME
In the deafening roar that blew across television networks, front-page newspapers and Americans’ kitchen table conversations after the release of a recording of Donald Trump bragging about groping women, one voice was noticeably silent: Hillary Clinton.
In the hours after the video broke, pundits yelled the word “p-ssy” on television. A rock-ribbed Republican governor and GOP members of Congress from Utah, West Virginia and Alabama called on Trump to step down as the nominee, along with some 30 other stalwart party lawmakerswho said voters should not support the nominee. Melania Trump was remorseful: her husband’s words, she said in a statement, “are unacceptable and offensive to me.”

How Rémy Martin Ensures Their Storied Cognac Stays on Top Observer
We met Sonya Sicaire, who’s been managing the 7.5-acre vineyard in the rolling hills of Cognac almost entirely on her own for 16 years, since she inherited it from her grandfather. Like many of the 1,000 external growers Rémy Martin sources from, Sicaire does everything in the process of making great cognac from pruning and harvesting to repairing her own equipment by hand.
“I’m very proud to follow the traces of my family,” Sicaire said. “It’s hard work, and you need to observe each time. People think there’s nothing to do in vineyards because it’s green and quiet, but while the vines are independent and can grow themselves, I’m here to make the grapes good.”

That Time Feminists Descended on the Miss America Pageant Vogue.com
Forty-eight years ago this week, a few hundred women arrived on the Atlantic City boardwalk and staged the infamous bra-burning protest. (Men were allowed to drive them to the event, but not to participate: “Male chauvinist-reactionaries on this issue had best stay away, nor are male liberals welcome in the demonstrations. But sympathetic men can donate money as well as cars and drivers,” the organizers instructed.)
As it turns out, no underwear was actually burned. A giant trash can was erected on the boardwalk into which were tossed mops, pots, copies of women’s magazines andPlayboy, false eyelashes, high heels, hair rollers, cosmetics, and, of course, girdles, and bras, and there were erroneous reports in the press that this ignominious heap, this hot mess, was set ablaze. But fire or no fire, this group of activists—some with nerves of steel managed to get inside the hall and unfurl a bedsheet from the balcony that read Women’s Liberation before getting thrown out—brought the issue of women’s rights to riveting attention across the country.
