Today's edition of quick hits:* ISIS: "America and its allies have launched more airstrikes against ISIS in the past week than at any other time in its ongoing fight against the extremists, according to President Barack Obama's counter-ISIS envoy."* Iraq: "U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter's push for Iraq to let Turkey play a role in the Mosul battle encountered resistance Saturday from Iraq's prime minister, who said his country's forces will oust Islamic State the militants from the northern city."* Pennsylvania: "Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane was sentenced Monday to 10 to 23 months in jail for orchestrating an illegal news leak to damage a political enemy, capping a spectacular downfall for a woman who three years ago was seen as one of the state's fastest-rising stars."* France "on Monday began clearing out the gritty, squalid migrant camp in Calais known as 'The Jungle' as refugees waited in long lines to be processed and bused to reception centers across the country."* Cold War: "Russian authorities have stepped up nuclear-war survival measures amid a showdown with Washington, dusting off Soviet-era civil-defense plans and upgrading bomb shelters in the biggest cities. At the Kremlin's Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Cold War is back."* Mega-deal: "Don't expect 'Game of Thrones' to get cheaper after the AT&T-Time Warner deal. In fact, in many ways it's hard to say what the proposed mega-merger might mean for consumers -- because it isn't for consumers. 'This is not about consumer benefits,' Rich Greenfield, a media analyst at BTIG Research, told NBC News by phone. 'This is about AT&T diversifying its business.'"Anything to add?
