Charlie, a six-year-old Golden Retriever, is usually an unassumingly quiet pet, but when he barks, you better watch out. The pup, who belongs to an Australian family, recently earned the Guinness World Record for the loudest bark, registering at 113.1 decibels, which is on par with the noise level of a 1970s-era KISS rock concert. Charlie narrowly beat the previous record held since 2009 by Daz, a German shepherd, by four decibels, which is lucky for Charlie, but probably not so lucky for his owner. Lauren Hansen
The Marriam-Webster dictionary reported that "look-ups for braggadocio spiked during the debate … after Trump used a word that is very similar in nature and spelling. The word employed by Trump was braggadocious, which is a dialectical word from 19th century America, meaning 'arrogant.'"

During a section of the presidential debate devoted to the topic of race, moderator Lester Holt accused Donald Trump of continually perpetuating the falsehood that President Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States — a theory that Hillary Clinton called "a racist lie."
But Trump repeatedly deflected Holt's question, turning the moment around to tout that he was able to get Obama's birth certificate released. Yet as Holt pointed out, Obama's birth certificate was actually released back in 2011, and Trump continued to insinuate Obama was born abroad as recently as January of this year.
Trump again sidestepped the accusations, to which Holt tried one last time to get an answer. "We're talking about racially healing in this segment," Holt said. "What do you say to Americans of color —"
"I say nothing, because I was able to get [Obama] to produce it, he should have produced it a long time before," Trump interrupted. "I say nothing."
When Clinton was given a chance to respond, she said simply, "Just listen to what you heard." Watch Trump deliver his answer, below. Jeva Lange
Donald Trump's solution for improving race relations between black communities and police was summed up with three words: "law and order." He again suggested at Monday's Hofstra University debate that police reinstate "stop and frisk." "Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York, because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men," Lester Holt said. "No, you're wrong," Donald Trump responded. "It went before a judge, who was a very against-police judge," he argued, and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio declined to appeal.

Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional, as Merriam-Webster points out.
This is the definition of stop and frisk, found unconstitutional. https://t.co/X97FuKpD33
