    Trump’s commerce secretary says Syria strike was Mar-a-Lago “after-dinner entertainment”

    Last month’s cruise missile strike on a Syrian airbase, Washington’s first direct military engagement with the government of President Bashar al-Assad in that country’s six-year-long war, was “after-dinner entertainment,” said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. Ross, like Chinese President Xi Jinping, was present at President Donald Trump’s Florida Mar-a-Largo resort, where the strike was ordered. He recalled the April 6 evening while speaking at the Milken Institute Global Conference, ...

Conservative plans to “rebalance” schools funding will result in £3 billion of cuts to school budgets across the country, which teachers say will see many schools lose thousands of pounds. The letter was sent by Russell Hobby, general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers, and signed by more than 500 heads teachers.

Anti-terror police have stepped up surveillance to monitor the new “active” plots, which are believed to be inspired by Isis or a resurgent al-Qaeda, according to the Sunday Times. Those involved in planning the fresh wave of attacks are not connected to the two plots that were foiled last week, the newspaper reported.

    The Pokémon Company Celebrates 19-Year Anniversary

    This year may be the year of Kirby according to the last Nintendo Direct, but I have an inkling which franchise will be in the spotlight next year. The Pokémon Company was founded on 23 April 1998, making this week its 19th anniversary. Contrary to popular belief, the Pokémon Company isn’t entirely owned by Nintendo – something that came to light when people realised Nintendo did not make, and made little money directly from insanely popular app Pokémon Go.

Symptoms of the headaches, such as sensitivity to sound, light, or touch, tingling or numbness, or vision changes, can make going to work, spending time with family, or even eating nearly impossible.

    Pope Francis asks for forgiveness for church's role in Rwanda genocide

    Pope Francis has asked for forgiveness for the Catholic church’s role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide, in which 800,000 people were slaughtered in 100 days of violence. The “sins and failings of the church and its members” had “disfigured the face” of Catholicism, he said. Speaking after meeting the Rwandan president, Paul Kagame, the Vatican acknowledged that some Catholic priests and nuns had “succumbed to hatred and violence” by participating in the genocide.

    Donald Trump refuses to shake Angela Merkel's hand

    Donald Trump has apparently refused to shake Angela Merkel's hand during a joint appearance at the White House. The pair held an awkward meeting that could help determine the future of the transatlantic alliance and shape the working relationship between two of the world's most powerful leaders. While the President greeted the German leader with a handshake upon her arrival at the White House, he appeared to ignore requests to do so as the pair sat together later in front of TV cameras...

    For patients with a very rare, inherited disease that causes excessive bleeding, fragile bones and bloated livers, French drugmaker Sanofi has a pill available in countries from Germany and Greece to the U.S. Not in England. The Gaucher disease drug, which would cost as much as 250,000 pounds ($305,900) a year, is poised for rejection by the state-run health system even after Sanofi offered an undisclosed discount for the lifelong treatment.

    Volkswagen has formally pleaded guilty to cheating the US government by using software to evade emission rules in nearly 600,000 diesel vehicles. The German automaker pleaded guilty to conspiracy, obstruction of justice and an import crime. Manfred Doess, VW general counsel, told a court in Detroit the company was “guilty on all three counts”.

    'Fake News' Now Means Whatever People Want It To Mean, And Legislating It Away Is A Slippery Slope Toward Censorship

    The discussion about "fake news" certainly began with good intentions, with participants earnestly focused on how disinformation, shitty journalism and bullshit clickbait were filling the noggins of a growing segment of the public for whom critical thinking was already a Sisyphean endeavor. The solution for this problem was never as clean and easy as most of the conversations suggested, especially given that Americans...

    Being gay in Latin America: Legal but deadly

    On a February night in 2008, Luis Alberto Rojas Marin says, his life changed forever. At 26 years old, the Peruvian gay man was arrested by police officers while heading home shortly after midnight. Throughout the six hours he was in police custody, he says, he was stripped, raped with a baton and verbally abused by police officers before being let go. All of this, he says, because of his sexuality.

    Why This Teacher Who Slept With Students Will Not Have to Register as Sex Offender

    28-year-old Haeli Wey pled guilty to two felony counts of having an improper relationship with a student this week though she will not have to register as a sex offender. Wey worked at Westlake High School in Austin, Texas. It was there as a math teacher she became involved with two male students. Both were 17 years old, the legal age of consent in Texas — which is predominantly why Wey will not have to register as a sex offender.
