US will step up air strikes to 'annihilate' Isis and citizen casualties are inevitable, warns Defence Secretary

Mon, 29 May 2017 08:43:01 -0400

(image) Pentagon chief James Mattis has said that the US is “accelerating the tempo” of the fight against Isis, and that civilian deaths should be anticipated as a “fact of life”. While US forces operating in Syria and Iraq do “do everything humanly possible” to prevent the loss of innocent life, “Civilian casualties are a fact of life in this sort of situation,“ General Mattis told CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday. The interview comes after new figures from war monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights found that the last four-week period was the deadliest for Syrian civilians on record since the US-led coalition bombing campaign began in 2014.

Thousands protest against Moscow housing resettlement, but numbers fall

Sun, 28 May 2017 11:17:25 -0400

(image) Thousands of Muscovites protested in the south-west of the Russian capital on Sunday against government plans to resettle millions of citizens from shoddy Soviet-era apartment blocks, but numbers had fallen compared to earlier rallies. A Reuters witness said around 5,000 people attended the latest rally, compared to organizers' estimates of 60,000 at a protest on May 14. Moscow residents are also concerned about the location and quality of the planned new accommodation, a lack of services and infrastructure and about threats the redevelopment may pose to the historic face of the Russian capital.

Orangutan climbs out of enclosure while rescuing her baby

Sun, 28 May 2017 23:20:21 -0400

(image) We know that orangutans are great climbers — in fact, it seems like they could just hop out of their enclosure, if they wanted to. It turns out that Sekara, an orangutan at the Perth Zoo, did just that when her 5-year-old baby Sungai lost grip on some equipment and fell into a garden bed on Sunday, according to WA Today. SEE ALSO: Rejected penguin has found new outlook on life with cutout of anime character Visitors were evacuated from the area for safety, but zoo staff were quick to respond to the incident. "She seemed really calm, just confused on where to go next. Everyone around was really calm and giving her space as well. The whole incident was probably only 30-40 seconds before staff arrived," Jess McConnell, a witness, told the news outlet. Perth Zoo spokesperson Danielle Henry told the news outlet that the incident was "over within 15 minutes," and Sekara remained calm and returned to keepers afterward. "Sekara is an excellent mum and a bit of a helicopter parent, and the only way to get to him was to pop onto the visitor board. She retrieved him and returned to the enclosure on her own," Henry said.  "Keepers were calling to her, and she has a very good relationship with them." The zoo will also conduct a review of the incident. It's not the first time an orangutan has escaped the zoo's enclosure. A couple of years ago, a 5-year-old orangutan named Teliti somehow got out and had a wander along a boardwalk.  Orangutang out at Perth zoo! Came down to play with my son.

Israeli TV: ‘Trump shouted "You tricked me" at Abbas during meeting’

Mon, 29 May 2017 11:05:10 -0400

(image) An Israeli television channel has claimed that US President Donald Trump shouted at Palestinian Authority (PA) Leader Mahmoud Abbas in talks held during Mr Trump’s visit to the West Bank last week. “You tricked me in [Washington] DC! You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement [against Israel],” Mr Trump is alleged to have shouted at the Palestinian leader, an outburst that was followed by several minutes of shocked silence, said Israel’s Channel 2, citing an unnamed American official. “Meeting you in the White House earlier this month given us hope… and optimism of the possibility to make the long-standing dream of lasting peace come true,” Mr Abbas said, emphasising the Palestinian leadership’s desire for a two-state solution.

Hundreds of witnesses watched the death of 44-year-old Dayow Mohamed Hassan in Ramo Adey village in the south-central Bay region, the regional governor representing the al Qaeda-linked insurgency said. Moalim Geedow told Reuters that Hassan was buried neck-deep in a hole then pelted with stones.

Sat, 27 May 2017 14:37:42 -0400

(image) By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - British Airways cancelled all its flights from London's two biggest airports on Saturday after a global computer system failure caused confusion and chaos, with thousands of passengers queuing for hours and planes left stuck on runways. The failure, caused by a power supply problem, disrupted BA's flight operations worldwide and also hit its call centres and website, said Alex Cruz, the chairman and chief executive of BA, part of Europe's largest airline group IAG. "All of our check-in and operational systems have been affected and we have cancelled all flights from Heathrow and Gatwick for today," Cruz said in a video message on Twitter.

State Department quietly lifts Donald Trump's restriction on number of refugees allowed to enter US

Sun, 28 May 2017 07:03:00 -0400

(image) The State Department has quietly lifted Donald Trump's restriction on the number of refugees allowed to enter the United States. Mr Trump has sought to reduce the number of refugees allowed into the US annually from 110,000 to 50,000, and had signed an executive order suspending all refugee admissions for 120 days. Although the restrictions were lifted on the same day a federal appeals court upheld a block on Mr Trump's travel ban, the decision is not related to the ruling, the paper said.

G7 leaders divided on climate change, closer on trade issues

Sat, 27 May 2017 14:36:56 -0400

(image) By John Irish and Crispian Balmer TAORMINA, Italy (Reuters) - Under pressure from Group of Seven allies, U.S. President Donald Trump backed a pledge to fight protectionism on Saturday, but refused to endorse a global climate change accord, saying he needed more time to decide. The summit of G7 wealthy nations pitted Trump against the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Canada and Japan on several issues, with European diplomats frustrated at having to revisit questions they had hoped were long settled. "We are satisfied by how things went," said Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, while acknowledging splits with Washington in some areas.

Arissa Ward, 23, called police in Middleton, Pennsylvania, on 30 December last year after finding her infant son unresponsive on the couch next to her where they had been sleeping. The coroner also found traces of marijuana in the child’s system as Ms Ward had been breastfeeding.

JFK at 100: A legacy etched in minds of Americans

Sat, 27 May 2017 21:44:12 -0400

(image) John F. Kennedy -- young, heroic, charismatic -- embodied the overflowing promise of possibility of 20th century America, until an assassin's bullet ended his life in November 1963. One hundred years after his birth, the youngest man ever elected president, who once urged Americans to strive for the "New Frontier," is still a political icon, and the country is celebrating his legacy, which lives on most visibly in his family. "It's an opportunity to reflect on what president Kennedy stood for, and the belief and commitment he had to solve every challenge in front of him," Congressman Joe Kennedy III, a great-nephew of the president, told AFP.

Bodies of civilians dumped near Philippines city besieged by Islamists

Sun, 28 May 2017 05:38:36 -0400

(image) By Tom Allard MARAWI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) - Bodies of what appeared to be executed civilians were found in a ravine outside a besieged Philippine city on Sunday as a six-day occupation by Islamist rebels fending off a military onslaught took a more sinister turn. The eight dead, most of them shot in the head and some with hands tied behind their backs, were laborers who were stopped by Islamic State-linked militants on the outskirts of Marawi City while trying to flee clashes, according to police. The discovery confirms days of speculation that Maute rebels had killed civilians during a takeover of Marawi, that the military believes is aimed at winning the Maute recognition from the Islamic State as a Southeast Asian affiliate.

Why 'Handmaid's Tale' costumes are the most powerful meme of the resistance yet

Sun, 28 May 2017 09:00:00 -0400

Earlier this week, 18 women dressed up in red cloaks and white bonnets, stood in pairs in the rotunda of the Texas state capitol, and began chanting, "Shame!" in unison. They didn't stop shouting for eight minutes.  They call themselves the Texas handmaids. You probably first saw them back in March, when images of their original protest in Austin went viral. That's when they sat silently in the Texas senate gallery, watching as lawmakers debated bills that would make it harder for women to get an abortion. SEE ALSO: Ivanka Trump is not your friend and she's not coming to save you What you may not know is that their demonstrations, inspired by Margaret Atwood's classic dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale and Hulu's vivid TV adaptation, are slowly spreading across the country. Women are holding sewing parties to turn yards of blood-red fabric into capes. They're swapping ideas on private Facebook pages about how to stage protests. They're even planning a coordinated demonstration where dozens of handmaids simultaneously show up at state capitols or in other public places in cities across the country.   #fightbackTX #sb8 pic.twitter.com/SnA8ndmHge — Shift. (@shift_stigma) May 23, 2017 If the visually striking meme takes off, it could become one of the most effective acts of protest from the resistance. The sight of even a dozen women wearing the handmaid costume, while staying silent and keeping their heads down, offers a stark contrast to a group of mostly white men deliberating over what happens to their bodies. The imagery is practically made for the digital era.  The point, activists say, is to send a powerful message: We're closer to a government that strips women of their bodily autonomy than you might think.  Shame on the #txlege for continuing to pass unconstitutional, dangerous abortion restrictions #fightbacktx pic.twitter.com/h7Xw05w5mV — NARAL Pro-Choice TX (@naraltx) May 23, 2017 "The easiest way we try to explain it is that the handmaids represent a future where women are nothing more than their reproductive capacity," says Heather Busby, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Texas. "Unfortunately, with the laws that are being passed, that future is not so unrealistic and not so distant."  The idea to enlist Texas women as handmaids started with Busby a few months ago. She happened to see women dressed as the title character from The Handmaid's Tale at South by Southwest. That was a marketing stunt by Hulu, the streaming entertainment provider that brought Atwood's novel to the small screen.  But Busby then joked on Facebook about how someone should send the handmaids down to the capitol, where lawmakers had been busy introducing bills that would curtail abortion rights. Soon NARAL Pro-Choice Texas ordered white bonnets from Amazon[...]

Two men killed in Oregon train stabbings after anti-Muslim rant

Sat, 27 May 2017 18:01:23 -0400

(image) A man fatally stabbed two passengers aboard a Portland, Oregon, commuter train after they tried to stop him from harassing two young women who appeared to be Muslim, police said on Saturday. Police identified the assailant, who was arrested soon after the Friday afternoon attack, as Jeremy Joseph Christian of Portland, a 35-year-old convicted felon. A senior researcher with the Southern Poverty Law Center, in a blog post, said Christian's Facebook page showed he held "some racist and other extremist beliefs." The attack unfolded hours before the start of Ramadan, Islam's holy month, when most of the world's 1.6 billion Muslims observe a daily religious fast.
