I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Administration will declare that states are pre-empted from setting their own standards in a move that will spark challenge

The Trump administration will end California’s authority to set its own vehicle emissions standards and bar states from setting their own rules, two auto industry officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

Conservative and free-market groups have been invited to attend an announcement of the rollback Wednesday afternoon at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) headquarters in Washington. The announcement is sure to spark a furious legal challenge.

Israel election: exit polls suggest result too close to call – live news
  • Vote is country’s second in a year
  • Both PM Netanyahu and challenger Gantz back annexing Palestinian land
  • Exit poll at 10pm (8pm BST, 3pm ET)

That’s it from me for now. My colleague, Kate Lyons, will be taking it from here.

Channel 13 just made a dramatic update to their exit poll after rechecking. They now give Blue and White a better chance at winning. At Blue and White election party HQ, everyone screamed in delight when the news arrived on big screens.

It bears repeating once again, however, that these are all just polls and not the result.

Trump's former campaign boss Corey Lewandowski grilled by House Democrats – live

Lewandowski appears before House judiciary committee, while US government sues Edward Snowden over book disclosures

Trump just wrapped his first fundraiser of the day in Portola Valley, California and is headed to the next, per the White House pool reporters. The fundraiser is expected to raise about $3 million, according to reporters traveling with the president.

The fundraiser itself, however, was closed to the media.

The fundraiser remained closed to press and pool did not get much of a view of the residence, which was located atop a hill.

Attendees were served salmon and vegetables, and pool spotted what appeared to be a golf hole in the backyard that featured a flag with a Stanford logo

The president today is visiting California. Many details of his brief visit, accompanied by housing and urban development secretary Ben Carson have remained mysterious prior to his arrival, though Trump did make clear that he’d focus on the problem of homelessness in California.

There to greet him as he arrived late this morning, was, of course, the trusty ol’ Trump baby blimp.

Protestors are gathered in #PortolaValley for President @realDonaldTrump’s fundraising visit. Follow developments at https://t.co/CLFzqr9Pkt pic.twitter.com/d9sI7R1ghX

WeWork's IPO delay a blow to Japanese investment giant Softbank

Failure of WeWork comes soon after Uber, another loss-making SoftBank investment, went public

WeWork’s decision to delay its public share offering after a lacklustre response from investors comes as a blow to Softbank, the Japanese investment giant that has thrown serious sums at several successful tech “unicorns” – and watched as some companies it has backed have floundered.

The WeWork delay saves Softbank, the brainchild of Japanese billionaire Masayoshi Son, from having to write down the value of its $10.65bn investment in WeWork through its Saudi-backed Vision Fund.

Trump administration exploring police crackdown on homeless people

New report suggests law enforcement as ‘tool’ to deal with crisis, as Trump laments people sleeping in ‘best entrances to buildings’

The White House has said it is exploring using police to remove homeless people from the streets, a vague threat that has escalated concerns about Trump pushing a law enforcement crackdown in California.

A new report from the president’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) said “policing may be an important tool to help move people off the street and into shelter or housing where they can get the services they need”. The policy document was published just before Trump’s visit to California on Tuesday and comes amid his increasing attacks on Democrats in Los Angeles and San Francisco over the homelessness crisis.
