  • California wildfires: Why Trump's claim 'forest management' is to blame is completely wrong - and why he'll keep saying it      Mon, 12 Nov 2018 11:41:19 -0500

    California wildfires: Why Trump's claim 'forest management' is to blame is completely wrong - and why he'll keep saying itThree separate wildfires raging in California have killed at least 31 people and as many as 200 more are currently missing while firefighters battle to contain the disaster. The Camp Fire in the north of the state has burned 108,000 acres of land so far and is among deadliest in California history, while the Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles has claimed 83,275 acres and the Hill Fire in Ventura County scorched 4,531 more. Against this backdrop, Donald Trump has exacerbated a situation in which emotions were already running high with a series to tweets blaming the infernos on the “gross mismanagement” of state forests at the hands of administrators.

  • Saudi says to cut oil output as producers discuss price dip      Sun, 11 Nov 2018 11:12:35 -0500

    Saudi says to cut oil output as producers discuss price dipSaudi Arabia, the world's top crude exporter, said Sunday it will cut oil output from next month, as major producers held a key meeting to discuss shoring up sliding prices. Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih announced the kingdom was cutting its supplies by 500,000 barrels per day from December. Oil prices have shed a fifth of their value in just one month after surging to a four-year high in early October, driven by a combination of factors centred on higher supply and fears of sluggish demand.

  • Judge Denies Scott’s Request to Impound Broward Voting Equipment      Mon, 12 Nov 2018 16:57:32 -0500

    Judge Denies Scott’s Request to Impound Broward Voting EquipmentA judge on Monday denied Florida Republican Senate nominee Rick Scott’s request that voting equipment in Broward County be impounded for security when not in use, proposing instead that three armed deputies be assigned to increase security at Broward election headquarters. During an emergency hearing in the lawsuit brought Sunday by Scott’s campaign, his lawyers asked Judge Jack Tuter to impound ballots and machines in Broward County, citing concerns about Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes’s handling of the count, given her past convictions for violating elections law and her office’s failures to report vote counts since last Tuesday’s election. Take away the concerns of the citizens, take away the concerns of the public that this election process will be protected,” said Scott attorney Jason Zimmerman.

    Party at Mark's: U.S. congressman offers to put up D.C. newcomersA leader of the Democratic Party's progressive wing in Congress on Monday extended an invitation meant to reassure new representatives worried about affording Washington rent: "Crash at my place." Representative Mark Pocan, co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, spoke at a news conference with about 10 newly elected colleagues including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was caught up in a flurry of media coverage over the weekend after telling the New York Times she would not be able to take on a lease until her government salary kicked in. Ocasio-Cortez, who at 29 has become the youngest woman elected to the House of Representatives, dismissed the worries, telling the news conference, "I don't need to move to DC until work starts anyway, and I am really taking this time to relish the last couple of months that I have full time with my communities in the Bronx and Queens."A former bartender who stunned her party by taking down a 10-term incumbent in a June nominating contest, Ocasio-Cortez was one of the most visible symbols of a grassroots insurgency that has sprung up across the country during the 2018 campaign.

    Central American migrants resume their march toward U.S. borderTrump's Friday order, which went into effect on Saturday, means that migrants will have to present themselves at U.S. ports of entry to qualify for asylum and follow other rules unveiled on Thursday that seek to limit asylum claims. The caravan, made up mostly of Hondurans, started north again on Saturday morning following a rest of four days in Mexico City. There they were helped onto buses and trucks by authorities, who stopped traffic to ask motorists if they would take the migrants to the city of Queretaro, where a shelter was set up at a stadium.

  • Dana Rohrabacher, quirky US congressman fond of Putin, loses seat      Sun, 11 Nov 2018 01:51:25 -0500

    Dana Rohrabacher, quirky US congressman fond of Putin, loses seatRepresentative Dana Rohrabacher, whose quixotic foreign policy campaigns made him persona non grata in Pakistan and Afghanistan and who became a rare US defender of Vladimir Putin, has lost his seat after 30 years. The 71-year-old Republican, whose exploits have included grabbing a gun to join Afghanistan's anti-Soviet mujahedin, was projected Saturday to have lost, four days after midterm elections in which Democrats seized the House of Representatives. Harley Rouda, a Democratic real estate developer, led Rohrabacher by four percentage points in a district in southern California's Orange County, a longtime conservative bastion that gave rise to Republicans Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan but where greater ethnic diversity has contributed to a shift toward Democrats.

  • British relatives gather in Ypres on Armistice Day to mark passing of their fallen families      Sun, 11 Nov 2018 06:24:28 -0500

    British relatives gather in Ypres on Armistice Day to mark passing of their fallen familiesEvery evening at sunset, the Last Post has sounded under the Menin Gate, in Ypres, the epicentre of conflict in the First World War, today, on Armistice Day, legions of British families flocked to Ypres to pay their respects to the fallen.  Benoit Mottrie,chariman of the Last Post Association and the grandson of its founder Aime Gruwez’ said, "This is the busiest time I have ever witnessed.  "In the 1950s, 60s, 70s it was often just the two police stopping the traffic the buglers, and maybe a handful of people, sometimes no one when we played the Last Post.  I don't think we will ever be alone again."   Gathered around the imposing 14.5 metre high memorial that bears the names of 54,395 British and Commonwealth soldiers of the 90,000 who died on Ypres Salient but were never found, the crowds bowed their head at one at 11am local time on the 11 November.  They fell silent, like the guns on November 11. At least 300,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers were killed over the four years of war, five major battles  around Ypres, including Passchendaele which cost half a million casualties for the gain of just a few miles. Lest we forget: First World War centenary commemorations, in pictures Ypres, which was of major strategic importance, was constantly shelled by the surrounding German troops and the city reduced to rubble. Scott Watson, 33, is a fireman with six years service in the Royal Navy. His great great grandfather was killed in 1915 in France. His great grandad served in the Desert Rats and his Dad was in the navy for 32 years. He was among the packed crowds by the gate with his partner Catherine Shea, 34 and daughter Grace, 13. “This means everything to me and to my family. It is our responsibility to make sure future generations remember them and Grace must make sure her children remember as well. We will never forget,” he said. Gareth Richards is a former warrant officer with the Royal Engineers, who served in Kosovo, Bosnia and Northern Ireland. Francesca Shaw, from Leeds, England, prepares to lay a poppy wreath during an Armistice ceremony at the Menin Gate Credit: AP Photo/Virginia Mayo He travelled to Ypres with 25 veterans of the regiment from Scotland and Northern Ireland. The Royal Engineers fought on the salient, digging under German positions and planting explosives. Gareth, who lives in Paisley, was here to pay tribute to his great grandfather, a private in the Welsh Fusiliers. Robert Evans was taken prisoner in the First Battle of Ypres in August 1914. He later served in the Home Guard in World War Two. Wearing his great grandfather’s medals from the Boer war and First World War alongside his own, Gareth said, “This is so important to mark history. There are going to be a lot of tears today.” The men marched out towards the front from Ypres, some along the route on which Reginald Blomfield’s triumphal arch has stood since 1927.   Max Dutton, 26, is assistant historian at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  Max, who is from Harrogate, said, “and I am honoured to do this job”. An HQ dugout near Ypres during the First World War, found in a scrapbook belonging to Captain Robert Harley Egerton Bennett Credit: A.C.H.Bennett / PA  His maternal great grandfather, Private William Alvin of the East York Regiment, served and survived on the Sommes and Ypres. “He was gassed,” said Max, “my granny always used to say he coughed all his life.” Volunteers from every corner of Britain took part in the “poppy parade” on Sunday, holding baskets of poppies. They were tossed them from the top of the gate so they floated down from the top of the arch. Firefighters in full dress uniform, and other onlookers, bent down and gently stowed them away in pockets and wallets as souvenirs. Eleanor Foulkes, 28, an actor, grew up in Montreal, Canada. “The importance of remembering cannot be overstated, especially for my generation as the war gets further and further away and back into history,” she said. Nearby at St George’s Memorial Church the muffled bells rang out. For almost 90 years, there were no bells ringing from  the “English Church” but today they rang four times. The church was built in 1927 to give a place of worship to those who came to build the memorials to the fallen. Reginald Bromfield, the architect of the Menin Gate where thousands gathered to pay their respects just 10 minutes’ walk away , was the brains and heart behind it. The Ypres and Surrey Pipes Marching Band march during an Armistice ceremony at the Menin Gate Credit: AP Photo/Virginia Mayo The Menin Gate and the English Church were among a handful of new additions in Ypres, which was over the course of the war reduced to rubble and had to be painstakingly rebuilt. But St George’s was never truly finished because until last year. Its brick tower, draped on Sunday with a cloak of 1,600 croctched poppies sent from around the world, had never hosted church bells. Funding ran out before they could ever be made. That changed last year, thanks to readers of the Daily Telegraph who contributed to an appeal to finally “finish the church”. Recognised in Belgian law as a Church of England parish on  a foreign land, St George’s now has its “remembrance bells”, eight English change-ringing bells that fit the steeple perfectly. They are engraved with the names of fallen bell-ringers on the Western Front, and by the names of schools whose boys went over the top to their doom.  The heaviest, the tenor, weighs 672 pounds and each of the eight needs a ringer to sound them. Queen Mathilde and King Philippe of Belgium during the Last Post ceremony at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Ypres Credit:  NICOLAS MAETERLINCK/AFP “We all them our remembrance bells because they have the names of fallen soldiers engraved upon them. When you are ringing, you remember. But we must never forget, we never seem to learn, We are at war now, aren’t we? No one must ever forget,” said Liz Millward, the tower captain of the bell ringers and the church warden. Liz was inspired to take up bell-ringing again, after a 15-year gap. Her father, a former RAF serviceman, had been ringing since he was 13. She moved to Ypres 14 years ago and is now the proud grandmother to a Belgian-British girl. Her great grandfather was killed in France, aged 42 and leaving four children and a pregnant wife. Alan Regin is the steward of the rolls of honour for the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, and has been researching the lives of the fallen bell-ringers from the Great War for nearly 30 years. The 59-year-old said, “1,500 bell-ringers fell in World War One. At Tyne Cot cemetery there are 35 names on the memorial to the missing and there are more than 50 on the Menin Gate in Ypres. It was them who brought me to Ypres and to St George’s Church. I saw the tower and I thought, “let’s get some bells in there.’


    British relatives gather in Ypres on Armistice Day to mark passing of their fallen familiesEvery evening at sunset, the Last Post has sounded under the Menin Gate, in Ypres, the epicentre of conflict in the First World War, today, on Armistice Day, legions of British families flocked to Ypres to pay their respects to the fallen.  Benoit Mottrie,chariman of the Last Post Association and the grandson of its founder Aime Gruwez’ said, "This is the busiest time I have ever witnessed.  "In the 1950s, 60s, 70s it was often just the two police stopping the traffic the buglers, and maybe a handful of people, sometimes no one when we played the Last Post.  I don't think we will ever be alone again."   Gathered around the imposing 14.5 metre high memorial that bears the names of 54,395 British and Commonwealth soldiers of the 90,000 who died on Ypres Salient but were never found, the crowds bowed their head at one at 11am local time on the 11 November.  They fell silent, like the guns on November 11. At least 300,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers were killed over the four years of war, five major battles  around Ypres, including Passchendaele which cost half a million casualties for the gain of just a few miles. Lest we forget: First World War centenary commemorations, in pictures Ypres, which was of major strategic importance, was constantly shelled by the surrounding German troops and the city reduced to rubble. Scott Watson, 33, is a fireman with six years service in the Royal Navy. His great great grandfather was killed in 1915 in France. His great grandad served in the Desert Rats and his Dad was in the navy for 32 years. He was among the packed crowds by the gate with his partner Catherine Shea, 34 and daughter Grace, 13. “This means everything to me and to my family. It is our responsibility to make sure future generations remember them and Grace must make sure her children remember as well. We will never forget,” he said.

The Royal Engineers fought on the salient, digging under German positions and planting explosives. Gareth, who lives in Paisley, was here to pay tribute to his great grandfather, a private in the Welsh Fusiliers. Robert Evans was taken prisoner in the First Battle of Ypres in August 1914. He later served in the Home Guard in World War Two. Wearing his great grandfather’s medals from the Boer war and First World War alongside his own, Gareth said, “This is so important to mark history. There are going to be a lot of tears today.” The men marched out towards the front from Ypres, some along the route on which Reginald Blomfield’s triumphal arch has stood since 1927.   Max Dutton, 26, is assistant historian at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  Max, who is from Harrogate, said, “and I am honoured to do this job”.

They were tossed them from the top of the gate so they floated down from the top of the arch. Firefighters in full dress uniform, and other onlookers, bent down and gently stowed them away in pockets and wallets as souvenirs. Eleanor Foulkes, 28, an actor, grew up in Montreal, Canada. “The importance of remembering cannot be overstated, especially for my generation as the war gets further and further away and back into history,” she said. Nearby at St George’s Memorial Church the muffled bells rang out. For almost 90 years, there were no bells ringing from  the “English Church” but today they rang four times. The church was built in 1927 to give a place of worship to those who came to build the memorials to the fallen. Reginald Bromfield, the architect of the Menin Gate where thousands gathered to pay their respects just 10 minutes’ walk away , was the brains and heart behind it. The Ypres and Surrey Pipes Marching Band march during an Armistice ceremony at the Menin Gate Credit: AP Photo/Virginia Mayo The Menin Gate and the English Church were among a handful of new additions in Ypres, which was over the course of the war reduced to rubble and had to be painstakingly rebuilt. But St George’s was never truly finished because until last year. Its brick tower, draped on Sunday with a cloak of 1,600 croctched poppies sent from around the world, had never hosted church bells. Funding ran out before they could ever be made. That changed last year, thanks to readers of the Daily Telegraph who contributed to an appeal to finally “finish the church”. Recognised in Belgian law as a Church of England parish on  a foreign land, St George’s now has its “remembrance bells”, eight English change-ringing bells that fit the steeple perfectly. They are engraved with the names of fallen bell-ringers on the Western Front, and by the names of schools whose boys went over the top to their doom.  The heaviest, the tenor, weighs 672 pounds and each of the eight needs a ringer to sound them.

When you are ringing, you remember. But we must never forget, we never seem to learn, We are at war now, aren’t we?

  • Indonesia urges more training for pilots after Lion Air crash      Mon, 12 Nov 2018 09:55:09 -0500

    Indonesia urges more training for pilots after Lion Air crashThe comments shed further light on the areas under scrutiny as investigators prepare to publish their preliminary report on Nov. 28 or 29, one month after the Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX dived into the Java Sea, killing all 189 on board. Now the investigation's focus appears to be expanding to the clarity of U.S.-approved procedures to help pilots prevent the 737 MAX over-reacting to such a data loss, and methods for training them. Soerjanto Tjahjono, head of Indonesia's transportation safety committee of crash investigators (KNKT), said on Monday that Indonesian regulators would tighten training requirements as a result of the findings of the investigation so far.

  • Republicans Remain in a Strong Position in State Legislatures      Mon, 12 Nov 2018 06:30:48 -0500

    Republicans Remain in a Strong Position in State LegislaturesMost of the commentary on the 2018 midterms has focused on the federal level, where Democrats won a majority in the House and Republicans extended their lead in the Senate. When combined with the governor results we can see that Democrats made important gains across the states, but the Republicans remain in a strong position. Going into the 2018 midterm, Republicans had complete control of 26 state governments — meaning that their party held both chambers of the state legislature as well as the governorship.

    Clashes reach residential streets in Yemen's HodeidaFighting for control of Yemen's rebel-held city of Hodeida reached residential streets on Sunday, as the Huthi insurgents mounted fierce resistance to government forces backed by Saudi Arabia, military sources said. Troops entered residential streets in eastern Hodeida with the aim of "purging them of insurgents," according to a pro-government military official. Fears for civilian safety have been rising since the loyalist forces renewed an operation to take Hodeida, which has been under the control of Yemen's Iran-backed Huthi rebels since 2014.

In northern California, the Camp Fire is one of the deadliest and most destructive in the state's history, killing at least 23 since it broke out on Thursday northeast of Sacramento and consumed much of the mountain town of Paradise. Hundreds of miles to the south, at least two people died in the Woolsey conflagration threatening the wealthy beach community of Malibu, near Los Angeles.

Despite being scheduled to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence on Saturday at Aisne-Marne American cemetery in the village of Belleau, the US president called off his appearance due to rain. The White House said poor visibility had grounded the presidential helicopter, but Mr Trump’s no-show prompted incredulity and condemnation in both Europe and the US.

    China postpones lifting rhino, tiger parts banChina appeared to backtrack on a controversial decision to lift a ban on trading tiger bones and rhinoceros horns, saying it has been postponed, state media reported Monday. The State Council, China's cabinet, unexpectedly announced last month that it would allow the sale of rhino and tiger products under "special circumstances", a move conservationists likened to signing a death warrant for the endangered species. Permitted uses included scientific research, sales of cultural relics, and "medical research or in healing".
