Dems' division, emails roil party on Day 1 of convention
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Angry Democrats heckled outgoing party chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz with boos and cries of "shame!" on Monday as the party tried to move past an embarrassing email controversy and heal divisions before this week's national convention begins. In her first remarks since announcing her resignation on Sunday, the Florida congresswoman struggled to be heard in her Monday morning address before her home-state delegation. Some delegates, apparently disappointed supporters of her primary rival, Bernie Sanders, jeered and waved signs reading "Thanks for the 'help,' Debbie," and more simply, "E-mail." Her supporters pushed back, standing on chairs and yelling at the Sanders people to step back or sit down.


FBI investigates DNC hacking; Clinton campaign blames Russia
WASHINGTON (AP) - The FBI said Monday it is investigating how thousands of Democratic National Committee emails were hacked, a breach that Hillary Clinton's campaign maintains was committed by Russia to benefit Donald Trump. A statement from the FBI confirmed that it is "investigating a cyber intrusion involving the DNC," adding that "a compromise of this nature is something we take very seriously." Wikileaks posted emails Friday that suggested the DNC was favoring Clinton over her rival Sen. Bernie Sanders during the primary season, prompting Clinton's campaign to point to a massive hacking of DNC computers in June that cybersecurity firms linked to the Russian government.


Germany: IS claims responsibility for attack in Germany
ANSBACH, Germany (AP) - A Syrian man whose asylum bid had been rejected in Germany recorded a cellphone video of himself pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group before he tried to get into an outdoor concert with a bomb-laden backpack. He was turned away and blew himself up outside a wine bar instead, injuring 15 people, authorities said Monday. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility. It was the fourth attack to shake Germany in a week - three of them carried out by recent migrants. The 27-year-old, whom authorities have not identified, set off a backpack laden with explosives and shrapnel Sunday night after being refused entry to the nearby festival in the Bavarian city of Ansbach because he didn't have a ticket.

Gunfire at teen nightclub party leaves 2 dead, 17 wounded
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Gunfire erupted at a nightclub hosting a swimsuit-themed party for teens in Florida, leaving two teens dead and at least 17 other people wounded, officials said Monday. It was not immediately clear what triggered the violence, but Fort Myers police Capt. Jim Mulligan said the shooting was not an act of terror. Police detained three people and said the area around Club Blu had been deemed safe, Mulligan said. The slain teens were 14-year-old Sean Archilles and 18-year-old Stef'an Strawder, police said. Archilles lived about a mile from the nightclub, said his father, Jean Archilles. Archilles said his son loved to play football and basketball.


Verizon buys Yahoo for $4.83B, marking end of an era
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Verizon is buying Yahoo for $4.83 billion, marking the end of an era for a company that once defined the internet. It is the second time in as many years that Verizon, extending its digital reach, has snapped up the remnants of a fallen internet star. The nation's largest wireless carrier paid $4.4 billion for AOL last year. Yahoo will be rolled into Verizon's AOL operations and CEO Marissa Mayer may be reunited with AOL CEO Tim Armstrong. Both were executives at Google for years and Armstrong tried unsuccessfully to convince Mayer to combine the two companies when they remained independent.


Yahoo's evolution from rising to fading internet star
1994 Stanford University computer graduate students Jerry Yang and David Filo begin compiling "David's and Jerry's Guide to the World Wide Web" in a trailer on campus. Within a few months, they change the name to "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle," which is abbreviated to Yahoo. 1995 Yahoo incorporates as a company, raises its first $1 million in venture capital and hires Tim Koogle as CEO to replace Yang. 1996 Yahoo prices its initial public offering of stock at a split-adjusted 54 cents per share. The shares closed at a split-adjusted $1.375 on the first day of trading. Its shares finished at $39.38 last week.


DIVIDED AMERICA: Clinton highlights lack of women in office
Hillary Clinton and Mary Thomas have little in common, except for this: They both hope to add to the meager ranks of America's female elected officials come January. You know about Clinton, but probably not Thomas - a conservative Republican, opponent of abortion and Obamacare, former general counsel of Florida's Department of Elder Affairs. She's running in Florida's 2nd District to become the first Indian-American woman in Congress. It's no easy task. "There is still a good ol' boys network that is in place," she says, though she insists that "A lot of people see the value in having different types of people in Washington." --- EDITOR'S NOTE - This story is part of Divided America, AP's ongoing exploration of the economic, social and political divisions in American society.


AP PHOTOS: Avoiding gender stereotypes in kids' clothing
NEW YORK (AP) - The options for gender-neutral children's clothing are still limited, but growing. Some big retailers like Lands' End and Zara are making small changes to their offerings, while some frustrated parents have launched their own companies to make the items they wanted to find. Many of the options are unisex T-shirts that have motifs like robots, trains or dinosaurs. Those smaller companies are among nearly 20 online brands that formed a campaign called Clothes Without Limits last year that they're reprising for the back-to-school season. More has changed for girls' clothes than for boys, but the vast majority of children's clothing is still gender-specific, says industry analyst Marshal Cohen.


Doping in ex-Soviet nations echoes Russia's problems
MOSCOW (AP) - While the scandal of Russian doping threatens to be one of the main talking points of the Rio Olympics, other countries are slipping under the radar despite sharing the tainted legacy of the Soviet sports system. Countries like Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine punch above their weight in the Olympic medal table, but their high rates of performance enhancing drug use, flawed testing systems and records of political interference in sport are a cause for concern. Excluding Russia, more than 80 medals, 22 of them gold, went to other post-Soviet countries at the 2012 Olympics, though some were later stripped when athletes tested positive.


The recipe for building wealth hasn't changed
Building wealth has gotten harder for most people in recent years. But the habits that can make you rich haven't changed. It boils down to this: putting aside money, regularly and consistently, that can be invested for your future. You have to leave that money alone to grow, which means you also need an emergency fund. And you must be careful with debt, because the wrong kinds can erode your wealth rather than build it. It's a simple formula but one that's become increasingly hard to implement as incomes stagnate and prices rise. A shocking number of American households - nearly half, by the Federal Reserve's last count - don't have enough savings to cover an unexpected $400 expense.
