WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton and her aides at the State Department were acutely aware of the need to protect sensitive information when discussing international affairs over email and other forms of unsecure electronic communication, according to the latest batch of messages released by the agency from Clinton's tenure as secretary of state. The State Department made public roughly 7,121 pages of Clinton's emails late Monday night, including 125 emails that were censored prior to their release because they contain information now deemed classified. The vast majority concerned mundane matters of daily life at any workplace: phone messages, relays of schedules and forwards of news articles.BALTIMORE (AP) — A key Democrat predicted Tuesday that there will be enough votes in the Senate by week's end to uphold an expected veto by President Barack Obama of a resolution disapproving the Iran nuclear deal. Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, told students at Johns Hopkins University that he remains undecided. But he said the numbers are close to favoring the president when Congress votes later this month on GOP legislation disapproving of the deal.NEW YORK (AP) — Stock markets plunged again Tuesday, continuing Wall Street's rocky ride, after gloomy economic data out of China rekindled fears that the world's second-largest economy is slowing much faster than anticipated. KEEPING SCORE: The Dow Jones industrial average lost 351 points, or 2.1 percent, to 16,176 as of 11:06 a.m. Eastern time. The Standard & Poor's 500 index declined 41 points, or 2.1 percent, to 1,931 and the Nasdaq composite fell 77 points, or 1.6 percent, to 4,699.BANGKOK (AP) — Thai authorities arrested a man they believe is part of a group responsible for a deadly bombing at a shrine in central Bangkok two weeks ago, the prime minister announced Tuesday. He said the suspect resembles a yellow-shirted man in a surveillance video who police say planted the bomb. "It would be great if he were (the bomber). Then we will know who they are, where they came from, who's behind this," Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha told reporters.ATLANTA (AP) — Police officers who arrived at the wrong metro Atlanta home for a report of suspicious activity shot the man who lives there, killed his dog and "likely" shot a fellow officer, leaving him seriously wounded, authorities said Tuesday. The bloody misunderstanding began when DeKalb County police received a report of a possible burglary. Officers were sent in the dark to a neighborhood in southeast Atlanta where many of the single-story homes look similar.WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds of Black Lives Matter activists, black and white, marched outside the Minnesota State Fair this weekend, hoping to bring attention to the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of police. Inside the fair, a booth also represented the group, with T-shirts bearing the slogans "Black Lives Matter" and "All Lives Matter" for sale. Todd Gramenz, who reserved the booth, chatted with fairgoers while the other protesters were kept outside.WASHINGTON (AP) — One more reason to watch the waistline: New research says people's weight in middle age may influence not just whether they go on to develop Alzheimer's disease, but when. Obesity in midlife has long been suspected of increasing the risk of Alzheimer's. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health took a closer look and reported Tuesday that being overweight or obese at age 50 may affect the age, years later, when Alzheimer's strikes. Among those who eventually got sick, more midlife pounds meant an earlier onset of disease.TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — A special edition swipe card for Taiwan's mass transit featuring the clothed image of a Japanese porn star sold out within hours overnight via a telephone hotline, despite a storm of opposition. Taiwan's EasyCard Corp. said on its website that it sold its full run of 15,000 card sets by 4:18 a.m. Tuesday after phone orders started at midnight.
