Jonathan Annicks wasn't sure he'd been shot. It was after midnight when he'd dashed outside his family's house to retrieve a phone charger from the car. Now, slumped over in anguish, he frantically punched his brother's number into his phone. "You might have to take me to the hospital," he gasped. "Come outside, please!"

The cyber attack that slowed many popular websites to a crawl last week is considered unprecedented in its ability to hit so many Americans, NBC News reported. The attack used a new type of malware that takes control of tens of millions of personal devices connected to the internet — including home routers, baby monitors and cameras — without their owners' knowledge. The Chief Strategy Officer of the New Hampshire tech company that was targeted by the attack called the attack "absolutely unprecedented." "What we discovered [was that] it was a part of an botnet attack called the Mirai botnet, which basically goes into folks' homes and takes over Internet of Things devices and literally turns them into attack vectors," Dyn's Kyle York said.

This election, polls have been center stage and often come under fire.
Donald Trump has mentioned online polls, for example, only to have them be contested as falsified, irrelevant, unethical, or out-of-context. But even more respected polls have been all over the map, with most showing a Clinton lead but by vastly different margins.
What explains this variation? How are polls conducted, and what makes for a trustworthy survey? What’s the difference between a national poll and aggregated predictions of a candidate's chance at winning? Here's a look at a few examples of aggregated predictions, national polls, and unscientifc surveys that can give some insight into polling during the 2016 election season.

Bullets narrowly missed a civilian taking a ride in a police cruiser in central California early Sunday morning, when a traffic stop turned into a police chase. Many citizens who want to understand the job of police officers and get a sense of the excitement of the job go on ride-alongs, like the woman in Madera. But her morning was anything but routine after a suspect ended up firing about nine rounds at the patrol car, leaving the passenger scratched by broken glass and crying in fear, but safe, the department detailed on its Facebook page. The officer, who was on his second week of the job, wasn’t injured and the woman on the ride-along suffered minor scratches, police said.
Tom Hayden was long past his heyday of political rebellion and the Chicago 7 trial when he died on Sunday at age 76. But in American culture, he remained an enduring symbol of a time when young people took history into their own hands.
Hayden reinvented himself many times, moving from the streets in the 1960s to the halls of California government in the 1970s, going from a longhaired protester who stunned many by marrying glamorous actress Jane Fonda to a lawmaker in a suit and tie.
But even when his hair turned white, he never escaped his past.
Hayden's 1960s were a decade of dissent marked by civil rights sit-ins, anti-war marches, the Chicago riots and scenes of kids being tear-gassed and clubbed on American campuses.

Iraqi forces shelled Islamic State positions outside Mosul on Monday as fighting to retake the extremist-held city entered its second week. A rights group, meanwhile, urged a probe into a suspected airstrike last week that mistakenly hit a mosque, killing over a dozen civilians.
The purported airstrike in northern Iraq struck the women's section of a Shiite mosque on Friday in the town of Daquq amid a large Islamic State assault on the nearby city of Kirkuk. That assault was meant to distract the Iraqi forces and their allies from the massive operation around Mosul.
While Hillary Clinton is making an explicit push for Democratic down-ballot candidates, Donald Trump is taking a more subtle approach, NBC News reported.
Sunday evening in Florida, Trump repeatedly pushed his supporters to help keep Republicans in control of Congress.
Asking voters to cast their votes for him in 16 days, Trump said, "That includes helping me re-elect Republicans all over the place," adding that it would be "nice if they helped us, too, right? To enact my first 100 days."
At three other points in the speech, Trump slipped in mentions of a Republican House and Senate as essential to enacting his agenda.

Hundreds of women, girls and other supporters proudly donned their yoga pants Sunday as they peacefully paraded around the Rhode Island neighborhood of a man who derided the attire as tacky and ridiculous. Alan Sorrentino said the response to his letter to the editor, printed in The Barrington Times on Wednesday, has been "vicious" and that he's received death threats. He maintained the letter was meant to be humorous. But organizers said even if Sorrentino's letter was meant to be a joke, the message is clear.
"Women are fed up with the notion that we have to dress for people's visual pleasure," said Jamie Burke, parade organizer.
Hillary Clinton is chalking up her lengthy list of policy proposals to her penchant for planning.
At a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Sunday, Clinton joked, "Maybe it's kind of a woman thing. We make lists. We make our lists, then we try to figure out what we're going to get done and cross it off."
Earlier in the day, at a church in Durham, Clinton said: "I've got plans for everything. You know how we women are."
Getting into the Las Vegas spirit, President Barack Obama told Nevadans late Sunday they have a winning hand in Democrats Hillary Clinton and Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto.
Obama was campaigning to boost Clinton's prospects and help Democrats to retake Senate control, scheduling a stop Sunday in tightly contested Nevada before headlining party fundraisers in California.
"You've got black jack," Obama told a crowd of 3,000 boisterous supporters packed into a local high school, while another 2,100 were in an exterior courtyard.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to immediately intervene in the escalating situation between protesters and law enforcement over construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, the tribe's chairman told NBC News on Sunday night.
"The DOJ should be enlisted and expected to investigate the overwhelming reports and videos demonstrating clear strong-arm tactics, abuses and unlawful arrests by law enforcement," Chairman Dave Archambault II told NBC News.
The tribe's request comes after a weekend in which the months-long protest entered a new and more chaotic phase. On Saturday, 127 protesters were arrested on suspicion of criminal trespassing on private property, according to new figures released Sunday by the Morton County Sheriff's Office.
