7 things to know now: Debate night; WikiLeaks without the net; new Macs on the way; Social Security


Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now: 

1. Debate night: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will meet tonight in Las Vegas for the third and final presidential debate before the Nov. 8 General Election. Chris Wallace of Fox news is the moderator for the debate set for 9 p.m. (ET) at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, and Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith who was killed in the raid in Benghazi, will be Trump’s guests. Clinton invited Mark Cuban and Meg Whitman to attend the debate.

2. Internet cut: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has had his internet access “temporarily” restricted by the government of Ecuador. Ecuador's Foreign Ministry published a statement on Tuesday saying it "exercised its right" to "temporarily restrict access to some of (WikiLeaks') private communications network within its Embassy in the United Kingdom." The move came hours after WikiLeaks published information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s speeches to the financial giant Goldman Sachs. Assange is in the Ecuador embassy building in London and has been since he sought asylum there following charges of sexual assault.

3. Updated Macs: According to reports, Apple plans to unveil an updated Mac line-up next week. The company will show off new versions of the iMac desktop, MacBook Air laptop and a thinner MacBook Pro laptop, among other products, according to Bloomberg.

4. Social Security Cola: Social Security recipients will get a raise next year, but it may be tough to find it in their checks. The typical retiree's monthly check will increase by $3.92 in 2017 – or 0.3 percent. The increase is the smallest cost-of-living adjustment ever put into place for the government program. More than 66 million people get the checks. The average retiree's monthly benefit is $1,305.30.

5. Phone exchange booths: Samsung is manning exchange booths in airports around the world to get passengers carrying its Galaxy Note 7 to swap their phone for another device. The phones have been shown to catch fire without warning. Customers are being helped by Samsung employees at the exchange points to transfer their information to the new phones.
