Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination for president Thursday night, delivering a speech that lays out her plan to address terror threats and create jobs.

Khizr Khan, the father of an American Muslim captain killed in Iraq, had a message for Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night:

"Have you ever been to Arlington cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one."

Hillary Clinton accepted her party's nomination on Thursday completing the field for an American political campaign without historical precedent.

Clinton has now officially become Republican Donald Trump's Democratic rival for the presidency of the United States.

The final night of the Democratic National Convention belongs to Hillary Clinton, who will formally accept her party's nomination for president this evening.

She's the first woman to ever be nominated for the White House by a major political party, and she'll be introduced by her daughter, Chelsea, to make her historic acceptance speech.

Many Senate Democratic women will also speak ahead of Clinton's speech.

Singers Carole King, Katy Perry and Sheila E. will also perform.

Here is a partial evening schedule, as provided by the DNC:

Like the recently released collection of Morrissey songs sung by Latin artists on the Mexrrissey compilation, Quiero Creedence explores another English-speaking artist beloved by Latin audiences. Josh Norek, co-host of the radio show The Latin Alternative, explains that middle-class Mexicans, among others, really embrace the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival.

If you've been watching the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on TV, you've probably seen it happen a few times already: Every few minutes, a fresh wave of brightly colored signs — bearing campaign slogans like "Stronger Together" or "Love Trumps Hate" — spreads across the convention floor like wildfire.

California Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, has been in politics since the 1960s, and launched multiple runs for president himself.

In 1992, he ran as the outsider candidate — chastising the incumbent parties that had "failed their duty."

"They've placed their own interest about the national interest," he said during the speech that kicked off his campaign. They've allowed themselves to be trapped and in some cases corrupted by the powerful forces of greed. It's time for them go!"

Researchers have found a curious purple orb near California's Channel Islands – and it's left them stumped.
