    Mueller report: Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke respond to Trump investigationDemocratic presidential candidates have issued calls for transparency over the findings of the Mueller report, and made it clear they believe Donald Trump is guilty of wrongdoing.

  • Thousands of Brexit protesters flood the streets of London calling for new referendum      Sat, 23 Mar 2019 14:27:47 -0400

    Thousands of Brexit protesters flood the streets of London calling for new referendumAs the tire fire that is Theresa May's handling of Brexit continues to burn, a crowd pegged at around a million people flooded the streets of London on Saturday, protesting the disastrous policy and calling on a new referendum. SEE ALSO: John Oliver shares his thoughts on Brexit and we honestly don't know whether to laugh or cryWhile the option of a second referendum on Brexit was once seen as highly unlikely, there's now a semblance of hope for those backing the vote. Prime Minister May has bungled the process and is faced with a variety of dubious options, including a yet-again delayed exit or even a no-deal Brexit that would have serious ramifications.Dubbed "Put It To The People," Saturday's march saw around a million people participate, organizers said.

  • Netanyahu cuts short US trip after rocket attack from Gaza wounds seven      Mon, 25 Mar 2019 03:58:11 -0400

    Netanyahu cuts short US trip after rocket attack from Gaza wounds sevenIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday he will cut short his trip to the United States after a rocket attack near Tel Aviv wounded seven people. An Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman said the projectile was fired from Gaza, an enclave controlled by the militant Hamas group, and Netanyahu said Israel would respond forcefully. Netanyahu, who arrived in Washington on Sunday for a four-day visit ahead of an April 9 Israeli election, said he would fly home immediately after meeting President Donald Trump at the White House, as planned, later on Monday. The early morning attack on Mishmeret, an agricultural town north of Tel Aviv, came at a time of high tension ahead of the anniversary of Gaza border protests at the weekend, and Trump's expression of support for Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. "In light of the security events I decided to cut short my visit to the U.S.," Netanyahu said, calling the rocket fire a "heinous attack". In Mishmeret one house was completely destroyed, and at least one other house and cars were left badly damaged. Israel's Magen David Adom ambulance service said it was treating seven people, including an infant, a 3-year-old boy, a 12-year-old girl and a 60-year-old woman who was suffering from blast injuries, burns and shrapnel wounds. The strike came minutes after the Israeli military activated air raid sirens in the area and said one rocket had been launched out of the Gaza Strip, a coastal territory 50 miles (80 km) away where Hamas and other factions possess such weapons. Smadar Castelnovo, a Mishmeret resident who lives opposite the destroyed house, said they were woken up shortly after 5 a.m. The attack could trigger another round of violence before the Israeli election Credit: AP "We heard the siren and we didn't think it was anything, but my daughter made us go into the reinforced room," said Castelnovo, still in her pajamas. "My daughter was upset because we had left the dog out. We went out to get the dog and as soon as we went back in there was a very loud boom." Police sealed off streets, and emergency services were working at the scene, as Israeli politicians visited to talk to media crews. There was no immediate claim of responsibility from Gaza, where Palestinians were preparing for Israeli retaliation. Israel told Palestinian officials it was closing all Gaza crossings as well as access to the sea from the blockaded territory. Yahya Sinwar, the head of the Islamist militant group Hamas in the coastal enclave, cancelled a planned public meeting scheduled for Monday afternoon, with Hamas officials citing "developments." Netanyahu said his decision to return to Israel was made after he consulted with Israeli military and intelligence chiefs. He had been due to address AIPAC, the largest U.S. pro-Israel lobby, on Tuesday. But early on Monday he said: "In a few hours, I will meet President Trump and immediately after that I will return to Israel to direct our actions close-hand." His chief rival in next month's election, centrist ex-general Benny Gantz, issued a statement accusing the rightist premier of having "bankrupted national security" by permitting such attacks. Gantz, who is also in Washington to address AIPAC, had urged Netanyahu to return home. Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial capital, and outlying communities had last come under a long-range rocket attack that caused casualties during the 2014 war with Hamas. Two rockets were launched at Tel Aviv on March 14 but caused no injuries or damage. Israel blamed those rocket launches on Hamas, though a security official later said the salvo had been set off by accident. The latest attack follows disturbances involving Palestinian prisoners in southern Israel. Palestinian officials said 20 prisoners in Israel's jail in the Negev were injured during violence inside the prison in the wake of "humiliating searches" by prison guards. Israeli officials said two guards were stabbed and wounded.

  • Pope accepts abuse resignation of Chile cardinal Ezzati: Vatican      Sat, 23 Mar 2019 13:42:56 -0400

    Pope accepts abuse resignation of Chile cardinal Ezzati: VaticanPope Francis has accepted the resignation of Chilean Cardinal Ricardo Ezzati, who had agreed to step down along with his country's bishops over sexual abuse cases and their cover-up, the Vatican said Saturday. Ezzati, archbishop of Santiago, is the seventh senior Chilean church official to resign over a scandal which the pope insists must be remedied. To date, Ezzati, the Catholic Church's highest official in Chile, has maintained his right to silence although he has promised to cooperate with the investigation into his activities -- if the authorities first clear him, insisting he is innocent.

  • Mueller report finds no evidence that Trump campaign colluded with Russia: Justice Department      Sun, 24 Mar 2019 18:57:59 -0400

    Mueller report finds no evidence that Trump campaign colluded with Russia: Justice DepartmentIn a major political victory for Trump, who quickly hailed the announcement as "complete and total exoneration," Mueller's nearly two years of investigation ended with a finding that no one in Trump's campaign "conspired or coordinated with the Russian government," according to a summary of Mueller's findings. The long-awaited report into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russia to help the Republican defeat his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, marked a major milestone of his presidency as he prepares for his 2020 re-election battle. Mueller himself did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump broke the law by interfering with the various probes into the 2016 election that have cast a pall over his presidency, but presented his evidence to Barr to make a determination.

  • Kamala Harris Calls for U.S. Spending Hike to Boost Teacher Pay      Sat, 23 Mar 2019 10:52:37 -0400

    Kamala Harris Calls for U.S. Spending Hike to Boost Teacher PayThe California senator will tell the Texas Southern University College Democrats in Houston that she’d seek to fully close the pay gap for public school teachers in her first term as president, according to a campaign aide who wasn’t authorized to discuss the plan publicly. Harris’s campaign cited a study by the progressive-leaning Economic Policy Institute that found that elementary, middle, and secondary public school teachers earn 11.1 percent less than similar college graduates, even after accounting for benefits, according to 2017 data. The candidate’s call comes amid a flurry of policy ideas from a large Democratic presidential field aimed at mitigating rising inequality and expanding the safety net.

  • iPhone 11 may finally deliver a long overdue feature      Sat, 23 Mar 2019 16:30:51 -0400

    iPhone 11 may finally deliver a long overdue featureIn any given year, it's not uncommon to see a number of conflicting reports concerning upcoming iPhone features. This, of course, isn't terribly surprising given that Apple early on in the development cycle will often test various prototype designs with different features. Indeed, this is the reason why, in the build-up to the iPhone X unveiling in 2017, we saw some reports claiming Apple was going to release a device with Touch ID built into the display itself.With that said, one of the more interesting iPhone 11 rumors we've seen pop up over the past few months centers on Apple potentially ditching the tried and true Lightning port for USB-C. More recently, though, credible reports have indicated that while that may happen in the near future, Apple with the iPhone 11 will stick with the Lightning connector.Echoing this sentiment, a new report from Macotakara claims that the iPhone 11 will feature a Lightning connector but will ship with a USB-C to Lightning cable. Far more intriguing, though, is that the power adapter will support 18W fast charging which should provide a noticeable upgrade from the 5W charger that currently ships with Apple's iPhone models. This capability has been long overdue and it's nice to see Apple finally, at long last, offering up fast-charging functionality right out of the box.The report further adds that Apple's iPhone 11 models will be able to charge certain accessories like the Apple Watch."Just as you can wirelessly charge Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds, you may be able to charge Apple Watch and AirPods with Charging Case," the report reads.Notably, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that bilateral wireless charging would be an iPhone 11 feature in a report provided to investors just last month.As for other iPhone 11 rumors worth mentioning, there's a good chance Apple's flagship iPhone 11 model will incorporate an advanced triple lens camera scheme. Meanwhile, the entry-level iPhone 11 will reportedly boast a dual lens camera.Further, we can expect to see improved Face ID performance and reliability, improved navigation capabilities, and a bigger battery which will hopefully deliver improved battery life.

  • Netanyahu visits U.S. ally ahead of close Israeli election      Sun, 24 Mar 2019 10:47:30 -0400

    Netanyahu visits U.S. ally ahead of close Israeli electionThe prime minister's White House meeting with Trump on Monday could be overshadowed in the United States by the expected release of details from a confidential report into an investigation into possible collusion between the president and Russia in his 2016 U.S. election campaign. Before returning on Thursday from the long-planned trip to the home stretch of a close race, Netanyahu can expect a warm reception from Trump, who along with the First Lady, will also host a dinner for Netanyahu and his wife, Sara. Trump helped to set the scene for his ally on Thursday, announcing that the time had come to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, strategic territory that Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed in 1981 in a move that did not win international support.

    Ethiopian Airlines questions Boeing's 'aggressive' softwareAn Ethiopian Airlines executive questioned whether Boeing had told pilots enough about "aggressive" software that pushes a plane's nose down, a focus of investigation into a deadly crash in Ethiopia this month. Comments by the CEO and vice president of the airline this weekend will fuel a debate over the safety of Boeing's 737 MAX aircraft, two of which have crashed in similar circumstances in the last five months. Ethiopian Airlines, Africa's most profitable airline, has robustly defended its own safety record, training and procedures after the crash on March 10 that killed 157 people.

    Syria force takes IS bastion, 'caliphate' wiped outKurdish-led forces pronounced the death of the Islamic State group's nearly five-year-old "caliphate" Saturday after flushing out diehard jihadists from their very last bastion in eastern Syria. Fighters of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces raised their yellow flag in Baghouz, the remote riverside village where jihadists from many countries made a desperate last stand. The SDF's victory capped a deadly six-month operation against the final remnants of the "caliphate" which once stretched across a vast swathe of Iraq and Syria, and held seven million people in its sway.

    Mueller report: Trump claims Russia probe was 'illegal takedown' and suggests Democrats should now be investigatedDonald Trump has described Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion between his election campaign and Russia as an “illegal takedown”, while suggesting Democrats should now be investigated. The president claimed the report represented a “total exoneration”, when in fact Mr Mueller specifically said that while his probe did not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also did not exonerate him. Mr Mueller did not make a determination on whether Mr Trump committed obstruction of justice in the Russia probe, and attorney general William Barr and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein determined the evidence gathered by Mr Mueller was insufficient.

    U.S. airlines prepare for 737 MAX tests, Southwest parks jets near desertTeams from the three U.S. airlines that own 737 MAX jets were heading to Boeing Co's factory in Renton, Washington, to review a software upgrade on Saturday, even as Southwest Airlines Co began parking its 34 MAXs near the California desert. The factory visits indicate Boeing may be nearing completion of a planned software patch for its newest 737 following a fatal Lion Air crash in Indonesia last October, but the timing for a resumption of passenger flights on the jets remains uncertain. Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration, which must approve the software fix and new training, are under U.S. and global scrutiny since the MAX suffered a second deadly crash involving Ethiopian Airlines in Addis Ababa on March 10, which led to a worldwide grounding of the fleet.

    Instagram vegan diets are risking malnutrition among millennials, Harley Street nutritionists warnInstagram influencers pushing "extreme" diets are causing young people to suffer from malnutrition and eating disorders, leading nutritionists have warned after a popular vegan vlogger admitted she fell ill after following her own diet plan. Yovana Mendoza Ayres, known to her fans as "Rawvana", has over 10 million followers across Instagram and YouTube - but admitted becoming dangerously unwell as a result of her raw vegan diet and 25-day fasts. The influencer, who posts her "cleanse" and "fast" diet programmes online, was condemned by her fans after a video posted by another YouTuber showed her appearing to eat fish. She said that because of her diet, "something wasn't going right" with her body, and she began to lose her menstrual cycles, and that doctors told her she needed to eat more fat, and she started eating cooked food again. “I wasn’t ovulating,” she said in a video explaining why she ate fish, “I was basically anemic and my thyroid levels were low. It was really bad, but it was borderline.” Posts promoting this extreme diet are still up on her social media channels, as nutrition experts warn that following the advice of influencers can lead to extreme health problems. Harley Street registered nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert said she has seen seriously unwell clients come to her practice after they followed the advice of Instagram celebrities.

I have seen a rise in my clinic of poor nutrition and in severe cases eating disorders from poor advice online. "Low calorie diets can be very dangerous if followed poorly and when the individual is already at a healthy  status. The risk of micronutrient deficiencies is heightened when reducing  energy intake, let alone when the diet is vegan and raw. A vegan diet is very difficult to get right and requires a lot of nutritional education and guidance, especially when it comes to vitamin D, B12, Iodine, Calcium, Iron and Omega 3." Another nutritionist, Pixie Turner, added: "I think 'influencers' with no nutrition degrees have no right to give out advice about food and nutrition online. They can share their own choices, sure, but even then there needs to be a clear distinction that this isn't advice. Also, influencers need to be aware of the responsibility they have, and particularly when they pair their food choices with their aesthetically-pleasing body, suggesting 'if you eat like this you can look like me'. (which is a total lie as it's more genetics than food choices anyway). Nutritionist Pixie Turner Credit: Pixie Turner "Sharing what you eat and suggesting other people do the same is not harmless in any way. I see so many instances in clinic where people can trace back their food fears and anxieties back to a single person on social media, who probably has no idea of the harm they have done to others, and will ignore and block anyone who suggests they've caused harm." The British Nutrition Foundation has also warned against getting nutrition advice from Instagram celebrities, and told The Telegraph: "Making big changes to your diet, such as excluding whole food groups, can increase the risk of not getting all the nutrients and energy you need to be healthy. If you're thinking of making significant changes to what you eat, it's advisable to speak to a Registered Nutritionist or Dietitian - qualified professionals who can help you make healthy changes."

  • Netanyahu to meet Trump with Golan Heights recognition on tap      Mon, 25 Mar 2019 01:18:40 -0400

    Netanyahu to meet Trump with Golan Heights recognition on tapIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Donald Trump in Washington on Monday amid expectations the US president will formally recognize the Jewish state's sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Trump broke with longstanding international consensus last week over the status of the Golan Heights, which Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War, saying the US should recognize Israeli sovereignty over the strategic plateau. Israel's foreign minister said the US president will go one step further on Monday when he welcomes a grateful Netanyahu -- who is looking for an electoral boost ahead of April 9 parliamentary polls -- to the White House.
