'Oldest' panda in captivity Jia Jia dies at the age of 38

A giant panda believed to have been the oldest ever kept in captivity has died at the age of 38, officials say.
The death of Jia Jia, whose age in human terms was more than 100 years, was announced by the Hong Kong theme park where she lived.
Her condition had worsened rapidly in recent weeks and she had lost her appetite, according to local reports.

She was put down by vets at Ocean Park, where she had lived since 1999. 
In a statement obtained by BBC Chinese, a Hong Kong government spokesman thanked the park for providing Jia Jia with care and support and added that it was "saddened" by the news. 
The park in Hong Kong held a high-profile celebration for Jia Jia's 37th birthday at her enclosure in July 2015.
Born in 1978 in the wild in Sichuan, China, Jia Jia was given to Hong Kong in 1999 to mark the semi-autonomous city's handover by Britain two years earlier.
Pandas normally live to around 20 years of age in the wild, and 25 in captivity.

Prem League: City Held By Everton, Arsenal Win

Manchester City came from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Everton, but will feel like they should have won after missing two penalties.
City could have opened the scoring shortly before half-time when they were given a penalty after Phil Jagielka had tripped David Silva, but Maarten Stekelenburg was on hand to turn away Kevin De Bruyne’s spot kick.
And City were made to pay for that miss in the second half when Romelu Lukaku ran from the halfway line before finishing calmly past Claudio Bravo.

The hosts had a chance to equalise when they were awarded their second spot kick of the day after Sergio Aguero had been brought down by Jagielka, only for Aguero to also see his effort turned away by Stekelenburg.
But City did finally find the back of the net in the 72nd minute when substitute Nolito beat the Everton keeper with a header as his side ultimately endured a third consecutive game without victory.
Arsenal moved level on points with City at the top of the Premier League table afte…

Donald Trump challenges Hillary Clinton to drug test

Donald Trump has challenged Hillary Clinton to a drug test before their next debate, suggesting the Democrat was "pumped up" on performance-enhancing drugs.
The attack from the Republican nominee came as he accused "corrupt" media of seeking to rig November's vote in his Democratic rival's favour, by reporting snowballing claims of his sexual misconduct.
Trump has trampled all conventions in his treatment of his opponent, vowing if elected to jail her over her email practices as secretary of state - and making "Lock Her Up" a rallying cry for his supporters.

His campaign has actively bruited theories about Clinton's health, seizing on her bout of pneumonia last month to suggest she is concealing a major health problem, and is unfit for office.
In a new attack, he suggested she had taken drugs ahead their last debate, and called for her to be tested ahead of their final duel Wednesday in Las Vegas.
