Twelve presidential candidates are set to debate in Westerville, Ohio, Tuesday night. It will be the largest crowd on a debate stage yet, and the first since the House launched an impeachment inquiry.

NPR's Steve Inskeep talks to Democratic Sen. Chris Van Hollen about the sanctions imposed on Turkey, and whether that will be enough to prevent it from continuing its military offensive in Syria.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned on Tuesday of a "prolonged" impact from one of the most destructive typhoons in decades to hit the country, with a toll that has now risen to at least 53 dead.

Typhoon Hagibis brought record-breaking rainfall, caused extensive flooding and power outages, forcing the government to approve a special budget for disaster response.

In a parliamentary session, Abe said the rescue effort from the storm that hit central Japan over the weekend was "continuing around the clock."

On a recent Sunday in a tiny gym just outside of Boston, physical trainer Justice Williams teaches Leo Morris a stretch called the Brettzel.

"Yasss," Williams shouts. "There you go. Elbows down."

"Jesus," Morris says, exhausted.

"Yass," Williams shouts again. "And hold. Very nice."

Morris, who is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns, is among about 10 people working out who identify as gay, trans and/or queer.

This is "Queer Gym." It's one of a few workout spaces explicitly for LGBTQ folks that's cropped up in North America in recent years.
