Turkey's foreign minister claimed Sunday that President Trump told Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during the G20 summit in Argentina that he was working on extraditing Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, a longtime enemy of Erdogan currently living in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, NBC News reports.

Why it matters: Gulen has been accused of orchestrating a failed coup against Erdogan in 2016, which the strongman president used as a pretense to arrest thousands of dissidents and assume sweeping new executive powers. NBC News reported last month that the White House was exploring options for extraditing Gulen, who has denied any involvement in the coup, in order to compel Erdogan to ease pressure on Saudi Arabia over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Kamala Harris and the political rise of America's Indian community

When Democrats next week formally nominate the daughter of an Indian immigrant to be vice president, it'll be perhaps the biggest leap yet in the Indian American community's rapid ascent into a powerful political force.

Why it matters: Indian Americans are one of the fastest-growing, wealthiest and most educated demographic groups in the U.S. Politicians work harder every year to woo them. And in Kamala Harris, they'll be represented in a major-party presidential campaign for the first time.

The cardiac threat coronavirus poses to athletes

Cardiologists are increasingly concerned that coronavirus infections could cause heart complications that lead to sudden cardiac death in athletes.

Why it matters: Even if just a tiny percentage of COVID-19 cases lead to major cardiac conditions, the sheer scope of the pandemic raises the risk for those who regularly conduct the toughest physical activity — including amateurs who might be less aware of the danger.
