Fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways and sidewalks and there's a fresh earthy scent in the ear. In America, the song Closer by The Chainsmokers is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Say You Won't Let Go by James Arthur is the number one hit song.

Barack Obama is currently the President of the United States and the movie Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is at the top of the Box Office.

The 2016 United States presidential election is in full swing, with Hillary Clinton facing off against Donald Trump. A video clip of Danielle Bregoli shouting "Catch me outside, how about that?" is going viral as social media users repeatedly mimic her catch phrase. The "Evil Kermit" meme is currently going viral, as people use the format to describe their battles with their inner conscience.

The media is reporting that Kim Kardashian has been robbed at gunpoint in Paris by men disguised as police. The masked men made off with millions of dollars worth of jewellery. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Fidel Castro, Big Syke, George Michael and Carrie Fisher would all be still alive.
