His lead there is powered by a 44 percent backing from black voters, surveys from<a href="https://poll.qu.edu/south-carolina/release-detail?ReleaseID=3649" target="_blank"> Quinnipiac University</a> and<a href="https://www.unf.edu/uploadedFiles/aa/coas/porl/Final%20Press%20Nov%2018.pdf" target="_blank"> the University of North Florida</a> released Monday show.</p><p>Another survey released Monday, from<a href="https://www.cbsnews.com/news/democratic-polls-2020-pete-buttigieg-rises-iowa-new-hampshire-biden-atop-delegate-hunt-latest-battleground-tracker/" target="_blank"> CBS News/YouGov</a>, shows even stronger support from black voters in South Carolina. Biden receives more than half of his support from African-Americans and has 45 percent overall support. </p><p>His next-closest opponents in South Carolina are Sen. Elizabeth Warren, at 17 percent, and Sen. Bernie Sanders at 15 percent in the CBS poll.</p><p>In the Quinnipiac poll, Biden has 33 percent support and Warren and Sanders are at 13 and 11 percent, respectively. In the UNF survey, Biden registers 36 percent support, with Warren and Sanders tied at 10 percent.</p><p>The polls bolster claims by Biden’s allies that he’s the only candidate in the race who can point to a broad base of support with a pillar of the Democratic Party – African-Americans.</p><p>Their continued backing is essential to Biden’s bid — particularly in the South<b> —</b> since black voters could account for one-in-four total voters during primary season. High black turnout is also crucial to any Democrat’s chances<b> </b>in a general election.</p><p>While Biden is benefitting from his status as vice president to the first black president, his longstanding ties to South Carolina and the attacks on his character by Donald Trump have also reinforced his position, according to state Sen. Marlon Kimpson, a Democrat from North Charleston who is neutral in the race and has hosted numerous candidates in his majority-black district.</p><p>“Ironically, Trump has helped Biden here,” Kimpson said.</p><p>“People I talk to believe Biden doesn’t get a fair shake. And there’s some ownership of him. He has been friendly to our state. He was President Obama’s vice president. There’s sort of a feeling of kinship with him,” Kimpson said. “And people don’t like folk picking on their relative. They believe Joe is an uncle to our state. And Trump’s preoccupation and fascination with taking him out has resonated.”</p><br><p>Kimpson and the pollsters cautioned that the race is still fluid and anything can still happen. The surveys show that many voters have indicated they could switch their votes. There’s also a sizable pool of undecided voters, about a fifth of the state<b> </b>electorate</p><p>“If Biden goes into Atlanta in the debate this week and says something stupid, well, he can’t afford any major problems,” Kimpson said.</p><p>The newest<b> </b>polls are a gut-punch to the two African-American senators who have looked to the state as a springboard, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. They’ve premised their candidacies on doing well enough in Iowa, New Hampshire or Nevada in order to gain momentum and capture the support of South Carolina’s black voters -- estimated to be as much as two-thirds of the primary vote in the state. </p><p>The senators’ calculus also counts on the implosion of Biden’s campaign, which has so far failed to materialize.</p><p>Harris only has 3 percent overall support in South Carolina and 6 percent support from black voters there, while Booker has 2 percent support overall and from black voters in the state, according to Quinnipiac’s survey. In UNF’s poll, Harris has 4 percent overall support and also from black voters, while Booker is at 2 percent in both categories. </p><p>UNF surveyed 437 Democratic voters by cell and landline phones for its poll, which has a margin of error of +/- 4.7 percentage points. Quinnipiac surveyed 768 likely voters by cell and landline phones. And CBS surveyed 933 Democrats in the state via internet-based web panels. CBS/YouGov did not provide detailed breakdowns of poll respondents by race.</p><p>The polls suggest South Carolina, the final early state to vote on Feb. 29, is an uphill climb for Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who is the leader in a recent flagship poll in Iowa. </p><p>In the UNF survey, Buttigieg had 3 percent support overall and 1 percent support from African-American voters. In Quinnipiac’s poll, Buttigieg registered no support among black voters and was at 6 percent overall.</p><p>“It’s certainly a warning sign for all of the other candidates,” UNF political science professor Michael Binder said, referring to the preferences of black voters so far.</p><p>Binder cautioned that early polls like this will change as the campaign grinds on and candidates win or lose in the early states. But at the moment, Biden’s support shows how strong he is with black voters.</p><p>“Biden right now is the toughest kid on the block in South Carolina and until someone comes along and punches him in the nose, he’s going to stay that way,” Binder said.</p><br><img src="https://static.politico.com/79/34/1ce97d424598a16ee75d6429c8ad/191118-biden-sc-gty-773.jpg"/><br><p>Name identification is a major asset<b> </b>for Biden in South Carolina. Only 8 percent say they haven’t heard enough about him in Quinnipiac’s poll, the only to survey the leading Democratic candidates’ favorability ratings. Sanders is well-liked, too, but less so than Biden with only 9 percent saying they haven’t heard enough. The rest of the field remains largely unknown to South Carolina Democratic voters in the Quinnipiac poll, by anywhere from a fifth to half of voters surveyed.</p><p>“There’s definitely some familiarity with Joe Biden that is helping him. Voters in South Carolina know him and like him,” said Mary Snow, a polling analyst for Quinnipiac, who added that 24 percent of voters in the primary said electability was the most important issue for them and of them, 40 percent supported Biden.</p><p>The polls also show that California billionaire Tom Steyer is creeping up in South Carolina, where he has spent at least $7.5 million on TV and radio, about $1 million on Facebook and hundreds of thousands of dollars more on digital advertising and mail blanketing the state.</p><p>Steyer is at 8 percent in the UNF poll, 5 percent in Quinnipiac but only 2 percent in the CBS/YouGov poll.</p><p>South Carolina state Rep. Russell Ott, who endorsed Steyer, said he believes the race is “up for grabs” but that “Biden is the default candidate for many.”</p><p>“I believe that Tom Steyer matches up best against Trump in terms of the economy and bringing back rural America,” said Ott. “I’m unfortunately very concerned that Joe Biden is going to bring more baggage in the race than he is going to need long term to be successful.”</p><p>Ott also pointed out that Republicans won’t hold a 2020 primary and many in the state might cross over and vote in the Democratic race, making it potentially more unpredictable.</p><p>The Quinnipiac poll brings<b> </b>Steyer and entrepreneur<b> </b>Andrew Yang closer to the requirements<b> </b>for participating in the Dec. 19 Democratic primary debate, which is co-hosted by POLITICO and PBS Newshour.</p><p>Steyer’s 5 percent in the Quinnipiac poll pushed him across the required polling threshold to participate in the debate (candidates need to get 4 percent in four polls approved by the Democratic National Committee or 6 percent in two DNC-approved polls in early states). Steyer still needs to hit a donor threshold of 200,000 unique supporters, but his campaign was confident he would hit that mark before the Dec. 12 deadline.</p><br><p>Yang hit 4 percent in the Quinnipiac poll. This is his third qualifying poll toward the December debate and his campaign has said he has already exceeded the donor mark.</p><p>The other billionaire who is expected to enter the race, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has upside-down approval numbers, with 16 percent viewing him favorably and 26 percent unfavorably in the Quinnipiac poll.</p><p>The Quinnipiac poll also reveals the long odds facing Deval Patrick, Massachusetts’ first black governor, who jumped into the race last week after opting against it months ago, robbing him of time, campaign contributions, an easy-to-assemble staff or debate appearances.</p><p>“[Patrick] has his work cut out for him in introducing himself to voters,” said Snow. “Nearly 8 in 10 likely voters say they haven't heard enough about Patrick to form an opinion of him.”</p><p>In North Charleston, state Sen. Kimpson said he doesn’t understand the math for Patrick at this late date.</p><p>“Deval Patrick is an excellent candidate ... a year ago,” Kimpson said, spelling out the ellipses as “dot, dot, dot” to emphasize how too much time has passed. “I don’t know how he’s going to do it.”</p><p><i>Zach Montellaro contributed to this report.</i><br /></p><br><p>Article originally published on <a

written Trump on Oct. 28 demanding answers on reports that the administration is mulling moving homeless people off the streets in California. <img src="https://static.politico.com/13/0c/1641019049faab997ddabf5ffc1e/20191118-ben-carson-gty-773.jpg"/><br><p>Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson accused House Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) of hypocrisy on homelessness today in a blistering letter charging her with lacking “basic manners.”</p><p>“My mother always taught me that people shouldn’t throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house,” Carson wrote, according to a copy of the letter obtained by POLITICO. “Because of that wise lesson, I was a little surprised to read your hostile letter to President Trump regarding the record number of homeless Americans in California, particularly in your district.”</p><p>Waters had <a href="https://financialservices.house.gov/uploadedfiles/trump_homeless_letter_cmw__signed_10_28_19__002.pdf" target="_blank">written</a> Trump on Oct. 28 demanding answers on reports that the administration is mulling moving homeless people off the streets in California.</p><p>“Your shamelessness knows no bounds,” Waters wrote in that letter.</p><p>Carson threw the charge back at her today in his response: “Shamelessness is a career politician of 30 years laying blame,” he wrote.</p><p>“Shamelessness is allowing more than 55,000 Americans to live on the very streets they represent,” Carson added, referring to the homeless population of Los Angeles city and county.</p><p>“To me, the most compassionate, obvious, and logical solution would be to get as many homeless Americans off the streets — with a roof over their heads — as soon as humanly possible,” he said.</p><p>“I have sent multiple letters to your office and requested numerous meetings, but each time you’ve refused,” Carson wrote. “Basic manners elude you and it seems that instead of producing results, you’re more interested in producing cheap headlines at the President’s expense — like a true career politician.”</p><p>Waters‘ office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.</p><p>He also alluded to the dust-up over his comments about transgender people this fall. Carson has maintained that he was merely repeating a concern that “big, hairy men” were trying to enter women’s shelters and refused to apologize for the remark when he appeared before Waters’ committee last month.</p><p>“Shamelessness is allowing anyone other than a biological female into a battered women’s shelter,” Carson wrote today.</p><br><p>Article originally published on <a href="http://www.politico.com/magazine/">POLITICO Magazine</a></p> kodonnell@politico.com (Katy O&#x27;Donnell) FirstFT: Today’s top stories  https://www.ft.com/content/b6511bcc-0a15-11ea-bb52-34c8d9dc6d84 FT.com - World urn:uuid:164d476e-3042-9d91-d9a7-43c8c09be35c Mon, 18 Nov 2019 17:35:11 -0500 Your daily briefing on the news North Korea says no more talks with U.S. just so Trump can boast https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-envoy-russia/north-korea-says-no-more-talks-with-u-s-just-so-trump-can-boast-idUSKBN1XS0HN?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews Reuters: International urn:uuid:1506bef9-6ebf-c39b-523f-4115def6d9d2 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 17:34:18 -0500 North Korea said on Monday it was not interested in meaningless talks with the United States just so President Donald Trump had something to boast about and demanded an end to what it called a policy of hostility if the United States wanted dialogue.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=Eg4iIEziAjk:_2ZzS-nlLhw:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=Eg4iIEziAjk:_2ZzS-nlLhw:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=Eg4iIEziAjk:_2ZzS-nlLhw:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?a=Eg4iIEziAjk:_2ZzS-nlLhw:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Reuters/worldNews?i=Eg4iIEziAjk:_2ZzS-nlLhw:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~4/Eg4iIEziAjk" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> worldNews House lawyer tells court investigators looking at whether Trump lied to Mueller https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/house-lawyer-asks-appeals-court/story?id=67113788 ABC News: ABCNews urn:uuid:f0d127bd-6b20-c5f0-2814-9fab1a02bf77 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 17:33:41 -0500 Did Trump lie to Mueller?

"There are a few (internet) routes out (of the country), but these are very technical right now, so it's not practical to circumvent these measures for most people." Toker said some technically savvy Iranians might be able to get web access using a fixed line or broadband connection rather than a mobile device.</p><p>The internet outage has made it difficult for Iranians to share protest images and information with each other and the outside world.

People are going to start losing their businesses because they rely on connectivity."</p><p>Images verified by VOA Persian and sent from Iran showed the bodies of at least seven protesters killed by security forces who opened fire on demonstrations in seven cities on Saturday. The bodies were seen in footage from the cities of Behbahan, Karaj, Marivan, Shahriar, Shiraz, Sirjan and Tehran's Baharestan district.</p><p>VOA Persian was not able to confirm the names of the protesters who were killed.</p><p>Iranian state media said at least one member of the security forces also was killed in protests since Friday.

This government today is the worst enemy of the Amazon," said Marcio Astrini, public policy coordinator for Greenpeace, in a statement.</p><p>Bolsonaro's office directed Reuters to remarks made by Salles and another official and did not comment further on the issue.</p><p>In August, Reuters reported Bolsonaro's government had systematically weakened environmental agency Ibama, grounding a team of elite enforcement commandos and forbidding agents from destroying machinery used to illegally deforest.</p><p>Brazil's Climate Observatory, a network of nongovernmental organizations, said the 2019 increase in deforestation was the fastest in percentage terms since the 1990s and the third fastest of all-time.</p><p>In response to the numbers, Salles vowed to roll out a series of measures to counter the rising deforestation, including stepping up enforcement efforts assisted by high-resolution satellite imaging.</p><p>The minister said he would meet governors of Amazon states on Wednesday to discuss tactics to counter deforestation.</p><p>All options are on the table, according to Salles, including mobilizing the military for use in environmental enforcement operations.</p><p><strong>Government reversal</strong></p><p>Salles' recognition that deforestation is indeed on the rise comes after months of the government casting doubt on preliminary monthly data showing destruction was skyrocketing.</p><p>At multiple press briefings earlier this year, Salles alleged the monthly data was unreliable and contained inconsistencies. He had urged journalists not to report the monthly figures and wait for the annual data, announced Monday.</p><p>Bolsonaro had accused the INPE space research agency of lying about the monthly data. In a high-profile dispute, then-INPE chief Ricardo Galvao stood by the data and called Bolsonaro "a joke of a 14-year-old boy that is not suitable for a president of Brazil." Galvao was later fired.</p><p>The annual figure accounts for seven months under Bolsonaro, but also measures five months under the previous government.</p><p>It also does not account for destruction after July.</p><p>Preliminary data for August to October shows deforestation more than doubled compared to the same period a year-prior to 3,704 square kilometers.</p><p>NGOs say they fear that protections could be weakened further as the government considers allowing commercial agriculture on native reserves, expanding wildcat mining and allowing for illegally occupied land to be "regularized."</p><p>Beef prices are also at record highs in Brazil, leading some environmentalists to fear it could fuel land grabbing for cattle ranching - one of the biggest drivers of deforestation.</p><p>"The coming years could be even worse," said Carlos Rittl, executive-secretary for Climate Observatory.</p><p> </p> It was the worst level of deforestation since 2008, heaping further pressure on the environmental policy of right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro who favors developing the Amazon region economically Sony patent may show a familiar-looking controller for the PS5 - Engadget https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiUmh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmVuZ2FkZ2V0LmNvbS8yMDE5LzExLzE4L3NvbnktcGF0ZW50LW1heS1zaG93LXBsYXlzdGF0aW9uLTUtY29udHJvbGxlci_SAVZodHRwczovL3d3dy5lbmdhZGdldC5jb20vYW1wLzIwMTkvMTEvMTgvc29ueS1wYXRlbnQtbWF5LXNob3ctcGxheXN0YXRpb24tNS1jb250cm9sbGVyLw?oc=5 Google News - World urn:uuid:4adabd1d-aaa5-e02d-eb07-6e3fe4355b09 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 16:18:07 -0500 <ol><li><a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiUmh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmVuZ2FkZ2V0LmNvbS8yMDE5LzExLzE4L3NvbnktcGF0ZW50LW1heS1zaG93LXBsYXlzdGF0aW9uLTUtY29udHJvbGxlci_SAVZodHRwczovL3d3dy5lbmdhZGdldC5jb20vYW1wLzIwMTkvMTEvMTgvc29ueS1wYXRlbnQtbWF5LXNob3ctcGxheXN0YXRpb24tNS1jb250cm9sbGVyLw?oc=5" target="_blank">Sony patent may show a familiar-looking controller for the PS5</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">Engadget</font></li><li><a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiK2h0dHBzOi8vd3d3LnlvdXR1YmUuY29tL3dhdGNoP3Y9clNFSzYxQTdEcE3SAQA?oc=5" target="_blank">PlayStation 5 Controller Design Revealed - IGN Now</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">IGN</font></li><li><a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiYWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmdhbWVzcmFkYXIuY29tL3BvdGVudGlhbC1wczUtY29udHJvbGxlci1wYXRlbnQtcmV2ZWFscy1maXJzdC1sb29rLWF0LXRoZS1kdWFsc2hvY2stNS_SAWVodHRwczovL3d3dy5nYW1lc3JhZGFyLmNvbS9hbXAvcG90ZW50aWFsLXBzNS1jb250cm9sbGVyLXBhdGVudC1yZXZlYWxzLWZpcnN0LWxvb2stYXQtdGhlLWR1YWxzaG9jay01Lw?oc=5" target="_blank">Potential PS5 controller patent reveals first look at the DualShock 5</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">GamesRadar</font></li><li><a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiXWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LnBzdS5jb20vbmV3cy9jaGVja3BvaW50LWR1YWxzaG9jay01LWJhdHRlcnktbGlmZS13aWxsLXRoZS1taXNzaW5nLWxpZ2h0LWJhci1oZWxwL9IBAA?oc=5" target="_blank">Checkpoint: DualShock 5 Battery Life - Will The Missing Light Bar Help?</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">PlayStation Universe</font></li><li><a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiWmh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lmlnbi5jb20vYXJ0aWNsZXMvMjAxOS8xMS8xOC9uZXctcGF0ZW50LXJldmVhbHMtcGxheXN0YXRpb24tNS1jb250cm9sbGVyLWRlc2lnbtIBYGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lmlnbi5jb20vYXJ0aWNsZXMvMjAxOS8xMS8xOC9uZXctcGF0ZW50LXJldmVhbHMtcGxheXN0YXRpb24tNS1jb250cm9sbGVyLWRlc2lnbj9hbXA9MQ?oc=5" target="_blank">New Patent Reveals PlayStation 5 Controller Design - IGN</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">IGN</font></li><li><strong><a href="https://news.google.com/stories/CAAqaQgKImNDQklTUkRvSmMzUnZjbmt0TXpZd1NqY0tFUWptbUppN2pvQU1FUkYyV2Ntb0IzTHhFaUpUYjI1NUlIQmhkR1Z1ZENCeVpYWmxZV3h6SUZCVE5TQmpiMjUwY205c2JHVnlLQUFQAQ?oc=5" target="_blank">View full coverage on Google News</a></strong></li></ol> McConnell Urges Trump to Speak Out on Protests: Hong Kong Update https://news.yahoo.com/hong-kong-police-storm-university-220347139.html Yahoo!

Running battles have occurred, with police firing tear gas and rubber bullets at demonstrators who threw bricks and Molotov cocktails.Demonstrations seeking greater democracy in the Beijing-controlled territory have become increasingly violent in recent weeks, with protesters vandalizing transportation networks and China-friendly businesses as they push for demands including an independent probe into police violence and the ability to nominate and elect city leaders.Key Developments:Lam decries violence near universityTens of thousands march to rescue campus demonstratorsOfficial says chaos putting Sunday’s election at riskMediators try to persuade protesters to leave campus peacefullyHere’s the latest:McConnell Urges Trump to Speak Out on Protests (5:09 a.m.)U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urged President Donald Trump to speak out on behalf of the protesters in Hong Kong.“The world should hear from him directly that the United States stands with these brave women and men,” McConnell said Monday afternoon on the Senate floor.McConnell said Trump should make Hong Kong’s autonomy a focus of America’s bilateral engagement with China, not just trade. The Republican leader’s comments come as the Senate moves to expedited passage of legislation this week which would place Hong Kong’s special trading status with the U.S. under annual review.Pompeo calls on Lam to allow independent probe (4:06 a.m.)Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said the U.S. is “gravely concerned” about rising violence in Hong Kong and called on Lam to allow an independent probe of protest incidents.Speaking to reporters in Washington on Monday afternoon, Pompeo said violence by any side in the dispute is “unacceptable,” but he singled out Hong Kong’s government as having a primary responsibility to keep events peaceful.Pompeo’s comments followed an earlier White House statement calling on Beijing to “honor its commitments under the Sino-British Joint Declaration and to protect Hong Kong’s freedom, legal system, and democratic way of life.”Tsang, school principals try to coax out protesters (11:54 p.m.)Former Legislative Council President Jasper Tsang and law professor Eric Cheung tried to persuade protesters to leave the campus peacefully, pledging to accompany them to police stations to ensure they won’t be treated violently. “If there’s tear gas, I will get it first,” Tsang said.Separately, some 20 secondary school principals arrived at the campus to escort students off the premises as clashes continued between demonstrators and police in the nearby area. An estimated 150 secondary school students are stuck, with some suffering injuries, Li Kin-man, one of the principals told reporters. Police have promised to let those under 18 years old leave after recording their identity, he said.Thousands reinforce trapped campus demonstrators (9:55 p.m.)Tens of thousands of protesters heeded calls to reinforce and save the demonstrators trapped in the PolyU campus, using umbrellas to battle back tear gas and water cannons in nearby Tsim Sha Tsui.Police fired tear gas at high points of the campus buildings after a number of protesters tried to escape by abseiling out, according to Radio Television Hong Kong.U.K. government ‘seriously concerned’ (8:45 p.m.)The U.K., which handed Hong Kong over to Chinese rule in 1997, said it was “seriously concerned” by the escalating violence from both protesters and authorities around university campuses in the city.“It is vital that those who are injured are able to receive appropriate medical treatment, and that safe passage is made available for all those who wish to leave the area. We need to see an end to the violence, and for all sides to engage in meaningful political dialogue ahead of the District Council elections on Sunday,” according to a statement attributed to a Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson.Officials warn public to steer clear of PolyU (6:20 p.m.)Top Hong Kong officials urged the public not to approach or reinforce the PolyU campus amid calls for rallies near the university. Security Secretary John Lee urged those remaining at the campus to surrender to police in an orderly and peaceful manner. He condemned the use of weapons by protesters, including remote-controlled bombs, catapults and petrol bombs.As the standoff ground on, Matthew Cheung, the city’s No. 2 official, vowed that the government was determined to tackle “deep-seated problems” and that ending violence remained its top priority.Violence putting election at risk (5:36 p.m.)The escalating violence in recent days has “reduced the chance of holding” citywide District Council elections as scheduled Sunday, Patrick Nip, secretary for constitutional and mainland affairs, told reporters Monday. Nip said staff at polling stations and candidates must feel safe on election day and that people need to be able to get to the polls without disruption.“Postponing would be a difficult decision,” Nip said, adding that the government wouldn’t take such a step “unless absolutely necessary.”Lam decries PolyU violence (5:18 p.m.)Lam, Hong Kong’s chief executive, decried the chaos around PolyU in a Facebook post Monday, blaming “rioters” for continuing “to escalate the level of violence.” “Police have repeatedly made appeals and people in PolyU campus should listen,” she said.Protesters call for rallies (5:14 p.m.)Protesters have called for rallies from 7 p.m. in Tsim Sha Tsui, a location near the university, to support those who are stuck in PolyU.City’s No. 2 to meet media (5:11 p.m.)Hong Kong Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung and Secretary for Security John Lee will meet the media at 6 p.m. local time at the government headquarters, according to a statement.Police tell university protesters to surrender (4:23 p.m.)Protesters inside PolyU should stop their violence immediately and surrender as the situation is getting “risky,” Cheuk Hau-yip, regional commander of Kowloon West, told reporters at a briefing on Monday. He said all protesters leaving the university would be arrested for participation in a riot.Police are most concerned about fires being lit as “rioters” charge at them outside PolyU, he said, without giving an estimate on how many protesters are still there. He also said police arrested a group of demonstrators who claimed to be volunteer first aid workers and journalists.Police said they allowed Red Cross volunteers into the PolyU campus around 2 p.m. to offer medical assistance to those injured. Some of them were brought to the hospital, according to a statement on Facebook.About 600 still trapped, SCMP reports (4:07 p.m.)About 600 people are still trapped on the PolyU campus, the South China Morning Post reported, citing Derek Liu Kin-kwan, president of the university’s student union.Clashes as protesters flee university (2:05 p.m.)Police fired tear gas and made arrests as dozens of black-clad protesters ran to escape Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which is under siege by officers. Television images showed police wrestling some protesters to the ground, and at times beating them with batons, while others climbed down trees next to an overpass to avoid arrest.It was unclear how many protesters remained in the university. Several police appeared to point guns at protesters, but there were no indications that anyone was shot.Schools to remain closed (1:30 p.m.)Hong Kong’s Education Bureau said schools will remain closed Tuesday “since there are still unstable factors affecting the roads and traffic conditions and more time should be given for schools to make good preparation for class resumption.” Schools have been suspended since last Thursday on safety concerns. Some primary and secondary schools are expected to resume classes Wednesday, while kindergartens, schools for children with physical disability or intellectual disability will remain closed till Sunday.Mask ban found unconstitutional (1 p.m.)A Hong Kong court ruled that the mask ban imposed by Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s government was incompatible with the Basic Law, the mini-constitution that governs the financial hub. The High Court ruled that the ban, which has been widely ignored by protesters, went further in curbing people’s fundamental rights than the situation warranted.Hong Kong’s government had invoked a colonial-era Emergency Regulations Ordinance to pass the prohibition on face-coverings, angering protesters and igniting fresh protests. Recent protests have seen thousands of people wearing masks in contravention of the law, and many have been arrested for violating it.Protesters gather once again in Central (12:45 p.m.)Protesters, including many professionals and office workers, have started gathering and blocking roads in Hong Kong’s Central financial district. Last week, there were five-straight days of lunch time protests in the heart of Asia’s key financial hub, with many white-collar workers hitting the streets to chant protest slogans. Police fired numerous tear gas volleys in the area last week, sending bystanders and office workers running for cover past the area’s luxury retail outlets.Goldman Sachs cancels anniversary event (12:30 p.m.)Goldman Sachs Groups Inc. is postponing a Hong Kong event to mark the firm’s 150th anniversary. The celebration was scheduled to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong, but was delayed because of ongoing protests, according to an email the bank sent to attendees.Police urge protesters to drop weapons (11:46 a.m.)In a series of Twitter posts, Hong Kong’s police force urged protesters to drop their weapons, remove their gas masks and leave PolyU in an “orderly manner” without making any menacing moves toward officers. A large group of “masked rioters” armed with petrol bombs charged at police cordons around 8 a.m., police said.Carrie Lam visits officer in hospital (11:30 a.m.)Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam visited an injured police officer at the city’s Kwong Wah Hospital, according to the South China Morning Post, which tweeted a video of her emerging from a hospital building. She declined to take any questions.Protests block roads in Kowloon (11:10 a.m.)Small groups of protesters blocked roads in the Jordan and Tsim Sha Tsui areas, not far from the standoff at PolyU. Activists had issued calls on social media for demonstrators to come out to the Kowloon area, as well as Central, to support protesters still at the university. So far, there were no significant crowds in Central.Military defends clean-up effort (10:35 a.m.)A spokesman for China’s military defended the decision by the local People’s Liberation Army garrison in Hong Kong to come out into the streets Saturday and help clean up from last week’s protests. The soldiers “joined the citizens in clearing these road blocks and their efforts were welcomed by the Hong Kong citizens,” Senior Colonel Wu Qian told a briefing Monday on the sidelines of a regional security meeting in Bangkok.“Ending violence and restoring order is the most pressing task we have in Hong Kong,” Wu said, citing a similar statement by Chinese President Xi Jinping last week.Dozens of protesters detained (9 a.m.)Police detained dozens of protesters in Tsim Sha Tsui East, near the PolyU campus, where clashes have been the most intense in recent hours. At least 30 could been seen on television feeds sitting on the ground with their hands restrained. It was unclear how many protesters and students were still on campus.&#92;--With assistance from Stanley James, Linus Chua, Sebastian Tong, Shelly Banjo, Glen Carey, Fion Li, Shawna Kwan, Karen Leigh and Laura Litvan.To contact the reporters on this story: Natalie Lung in Hong Kong at flung6@bloomberg.net;Iain Marlow in Hong Kong at imarlow1@bloomberg.net;Annie Lee in Hong Kong at olee42@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Scott at bscott66@bloomberg.net, Chris Kay, Bill FariesFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.<p><br clear="all"> <p><a href="https://news.yahoo.com/hong-kong-police-storm-university-220347139.html"><img src="http://l2.yimg.com/uu/api/res/1.2/o1auosq8UZsll5cXoU5B6g--/YXBwaWQ9eXRhY2h5b247aD04Njt3PTEzMDs-/https://media.zenfs.com/en/bloomberg_politics_602/eee52df7def3dee48b1af4f3c9cedd62" width="130" height="86" alt="McConnell Urges Trump to Speak Out on Protests: Hong Kong Update" align="left" title="McConnell Urges Trump to Speak Out on Protests: Hong Kong Update" border="0" ></a>(Bloomberg) -- Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam urged protesters holed up in a university to heed police calls to surrender, as tens of thousands of protesters marched to support the trapped demonstrators.Police and protesters clashed around Hong Kong Polytechnic University for much of the day, leading to multiple arrests and injuries.

He condemned the use of weapons by protesters, including remote-controlled bombs, catapults and petrol bombs.As the standoff ground on, Matthew Cheung, the city’s No. 2 official, vowed that the government was determined to tackle “deep-seated problems” and that ending violence remained its top priority.Violence putting election at risk (5:36 p.m.)The escalating violence in recent days has “reduced the chance of holding” citywide District Council elections as scheduled Sunday, Patrick Nip, secretary for constitutional and mainland affairs, told reporters Monday. Nip said staff at polling stations and candidates must feel safe on election day and that people need to be able to get to the polls without disruption.“Postponing would be a difficult decision,” Nip said, adding that the government wouldn’t take such a step “unless absolutely necessary.”Lam decries PolyU violence (5:18 p.m.)Lam, Hong Kong’s chief executive, decried the chaos around PolyU in a Facebook post Monday, blaming “rioters” for continuing “to escalate the level of violence.” “Police have repeatedly made appeals and people in PolyU campus should listen,” she said.Protesters call for rallies (5:14 p.m.)Protesters have called for rallies from 7 p.m. in Tsim Sha Tsui, a location near the university, to support those who are stuck in PolyU.City’s No. 2 to meet media (5:11 p.m.)Hong Kong Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung and Secretary for Security John Lee will meet the media at 6 p.m. local time at the government headquarters, according to a statement.Police tell university protesters to surrender (4:23 p.m.)Protesters inside PolyU should stop their violence immediately and surrender as the situation is getting “risky,” Cheuk Hau-yip, regional commander of Kowloon West, told reporters at a briefing on Monday. He said all protesters leaving the university would be arrested for participation in a riot.Police are most concerned about fires being lit as “rioters” charge at them outside PolyU, he said, without giving an estimate on how many protesters are still there. He also said police arrested a group of demonstrators who claimed to be volunteer first aid workers and journalists.Police said they allowed Red Cross volunteers into the PolyU campus around 2 p.m. to offer medical assistance to those injured. Some of them were brought to the hospital, according to a statement on Facebook.About 600 still trapped, SCMP reports (4:07 p.m.)About 600 people are still trapped on the PolyU campus, the South China Morning Post reported, citing Derek Liu Kin-kwan, president of the university’s student union.Clashes as protesters flee university (2:05 p.m.)Police fired tear gas and made arrests as dozens of black-clad protesters ran to escape Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which is under siege by officers. Television images showed police wrestling some protesters to the ground, and at times beating them with batons, while others climbed down trees next to an overpass to avoid arrest.It was unclear how many protesters remained in the university. Several police appeared to point guns at protesters, but there were no indications that anyone was shot.Schools to remain closed (1:30 p.m.)Hong Kong’s Education Bureau said schools will remain closed Tuesday “since there are still unstable factors affecting the roads and traffic conditions and more time should be given for schools to make good preparation for class resumption.” Schools have been suspended since last Thursday on safety concerns. Some primary and secondary schools are expected to resume classes Wednesday, while kindergartens, schools for children with physical disability or intellectual disability will remain closed till Sunday.Mask ban found unconstitutional (1 p.m.)A Hong Kong court ruled that the mask ban imposed by Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s government was incompatible with the Basic Law, the mini-constitution that governs the financial hub. The High Court ruled that the ban, which has been widely ignored by protesters, went further in curbing people’s fundamental rights than the situation warranted.Hong Kong’s government had invoked a colonial-era Emergency Regulations Ordinance to pass the prohibition on face-coverings, angering protesters and igniting fresh protests. Recent protests have seen thousands of people wearing masks in contravention of the law, and many have been arrested for violating it.Protesters gather once again in Central (12:45 p.m.)Protesters, including many professionals and office workers, have started gathering and blocking roads in Hong Kong’s Central financial district. Last week, there were five-straight days of lunch time protests in the heart of Asia’s key financial hub, with many white-collar workers hitting the streets to chant protest slogans. Police fired numerous tear gas volleys in the area last week, sending bystanders and office workers running for cover past the area’s luxury retail outlets.Goldman Sachs cancels anniversary event (12:30 p.m.)Goldman Sachs Groups Inc. is postponing a Hong Kong event to mark the firm’s 150th anniversary. The celebration was scheduled to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong, but was delayed because of ongoing protests, according to an email the bank sent to attendees.Police urge protesters to drop weapons (11:46 a.m.)In a series of Twitter posts, Hong Kong’s police force urged protesters to drop their weapons, remove their gas masks and leave PolyU in an “orderly manner” without making any menacing moves toward officers. A large group of “masked rioters” armed with petrol bombs charged at police cordons around 8 a.m., police said.Carrie Lam visits officer in hospital (11:30 a.m.)Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam visited an injured police officer at the city’s Kwong Wah Hospital, according to the South China Morning Post, which tweeted a video of her emerging from a hospital building. She declined to take any questions.Protests block roads in Kowloon (11:10 a.m.)Small groups of protesters blocked roads in the Jordan and Tsim Sha Tsui areas, not far from the standoff at PolyU. Activists had issued calls on social media for demonstrators to come out to the Kowloon area, as well as Central, to support protesters still at the university. So far, there were no significant crowds in Central.Military defends clean-up effort (10:35 a.m.)A spokesman for China’s military defended the decision by the local People’s Liberation Army garrison in Hong Kong to come out into the streets Saturday and help clean up from last week’s protests. The soldiers “joined the citizens in clearing these road blocks and their efforts were welcomed by the Hong Kong citizens,” Senior Colonel Wu Qian told a briefing Monday on the sidelines of a regional security meeting in Bangkok.“Ending violence and restoring order is the most pressing task we have in Hong Kong,” Wu said, citing a similar statement by Chinese President Xi Jinping last week.Dozens of protesters detained (9 a.m.)Police detained dozens of protesters in Tsim Sha Tsui East, near the PolyU campus, where clashes have been the most intense in recent hours. At least 30 could been seen on television feeds sitting on the ground with their hands restrained. It was unclear how many protesters and students were still on campus.&#92;--With assistance from Stanley James, Linus Chua, Sebastian Tong, Shelly Banjo, Glen Carey, Fion Li, Shawna Kwan, Karen Leigh

She also took aim at Colony Capital Inc. and Cerberus Capital Management.“Some of the same Wall Street firms that tanked the dream of home ownership for millions of American families are now the country’s biggest landlords -- profiting off the destruction they caused,” Warren wrote in her post.Blackstone noted that in fact it began purchasing homes through its subsidiary, Invitation Homes, in 2012, after the housing crisis that began in 2008 had abated. The company said vacant homes were dragging down property values for surrounding homes, and Blackstone’s purchases and billion-dollar investments in renovations boosted local economies and employment. The firm was spending $150 million a week buying single-family homes.“Though we are only a tiny percentage of the housing market, we are proud of our investments, which are helping address the housing shortage by adding high-quality, professionally managed rental housing, while contributing to local economies and creating jobs -- all on behalf of our investors, which include retirement systems for millions of teachers, nurses, firefighters and other pensioners,” said Jen Friedman, senior vice president for global public affairs at Blackstone.Blackstone is one of the world’s largest real-estate investors, and has about $554 billion in total assets under management. The business is so profitable it has made both founder Stephen Schwarzman and president Jonathan Gray, who oversaw Blackstone’s massive real estate growth, billionaires several times over.Warren has singled out some of the largest U.S. corporations, including Facebook Inc., Exxon Mobil Corp., Walmart Inc., and Wells Fargo & Co., as she campaigns for the Democratic nomination by championing working- and middle-class families. The Massachusetts senator promised to break up big corporations, crack down on their political influence and enforce strict regulations on Wall Street.She has also engaged in fights with such Wall Street figures as Lloyd Blankfein and Leon Cooperman.Warren’s latest attack comes in a policy proposal to withhold federal funding from corporate landlords with a history of “harassing” tenants. Corporate landlords would be required to publicly disclose data like median rent, the number of tenants they’ve evicted and building code violations, as well as the names of any individuals with an ownership interest of 25% or more.Warren also pointed to Blackstone’s $5.3 billion deal to buy New York’s Stuyvesant Town, an 80-acre Manhattan development with more than 11,000 apartments. Under the terms of the deal, about 5,000 of those apartments would remain “affordable” for 20 years, according to an announcement by New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio.Warren has proposed spending $500 billion to build about 3 million housing units in the U.S., and also said her administration would provide a nationwide right-to-counsel and establish a federal grant program aimed at benefiting low-income tenants facing eviction. She said she’d create a federal Tenant Protection Bureau, modeled after the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a key component of the 2010 Wall Street overhaul legislation that she advocated.(Updates with details on Blackstone’s housing purchases in fifth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Misyrlena Egkolfopoulou in Washington at megkolfopoul@bloomberg.net;Heather Perlberg in Washington at hperlberg@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at wbenjaminson@bloomberg.net, ;Sam Mamudi at smamudi@bloomberg.net, Gregory MottFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.<p><br clear="all"> <p><a href="https://news.yahoo.com/warren-calls-blackstone-shameless-profits-185643981.html"><img src="" width="130" height="86" alt="Warren Calls Out Blackstone for ‘Shameless’ Profits From Housing" align="left" title="Warren Calls Out Blackstone for ‘Shameless’ Profits From Housing" border="0" ></a>(Bloomberg) -- Elizabeth Warren called out Blackstone Group Inc. for its real estate practices as she laid out her tenants’ rights plan, accusing the company of “shamelessly” profiting from the 2008 housing crisis.Her criticism on Monday was the latest instance of the Democratic 2020 presidential candidate singling out Wall Street companies and investors by name for actions she says contribute to inequality.In a Medium post where she laid out proposals to strengthen tenants’ rights, Warren assailed Blackstone for going on a “shopping spree” in the wake of the 2008 crisis and buying apartments and single-family homes that had been foreclosed.

He then declined to say whether he had confidence in ambassador Bill Taylor, who replaced Yovanovitch, after he provided damaging testimony against the Trump administration in last week&#39;s impeachment hearings.The conference&#39;s main purpose was to announce the U.S. would no longer automatically consider Israeli settlements in the West Bank to be &quot;inconsistent with international law,&quot; as they were found under a 1978 State Department legal opinion. It&#39;s yet another affirmation of the Trump administration&#39;s pro-Israel stance, and is sure to be opposed by Palestinians and their supporters.More stories from theweek.com The potential lie that could actually destroy Trump The coming death of just about every rock legend How China can win a trade war in 1 move<p><br clear="all"> Taylor Swift cleared to perform hits at AMAs amid feud with Scooter Braun, Big Machine Records: report - Fox News https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiaGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmZveG5ld3MuY29tL2VudGVydGFpbm1lbnQvdGF5bG9yLXN3aWZ0LWNsZWFyZWQtcGVyZm9ybS1hbWFzLXNjb290ZXItYnJhdW4tYmlnLW1hY2hpbmUtcmVwb3J00gFsaHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZm94bmV3cy5jb20vZW50ZXJ0YWlubWVudC90YXlsb3Itc3dpZnQtY2xlYXJlZC1wZXJmb3JtLWFtYXMtc2Nvb3Rlci1icmF1bi1iaWctbWFjaGluZS1yZXBvcnQuYW1w?oc=5 Google News - World urn:uuid:a1873d02-e3d4-9f1a-480e-ddf0b163369d Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:55:23 -0500 <ol><li><a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiaGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmZveG5ld3MuY29tL2VudGVydGFpbm1lbnQvdGF5bG9yLXN3aWZ0LWNsZWFyZWQtcGVyZm9ybS1hbWFzLXNjb290ZXItYnJhdW4tYmlnLW1hY2hpbmUtcmVwb3J00gFsaHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZm94bmV3cy5jb20vZW50ZXJ0YWlubWVudC90YXlsb3Itc3dpZnQtY2xlYXJlZC1wZXJmb3JtLWFtYXMtc2Nvb3Rlci1icmF1bi1iaWctbWFjaGluZS1yZXBvcnQuYW1w?oc=5" target="_blank">Taylor Swift cleared to perform hits at AMAs amid feud with Scooter Braun, Big Machine Records: report</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">Fox News</font></li><li><a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMiK2h0dHBzOi8vd3d3LnlvdXR1YmUuY29tL3dhdGNoP3Y9LUs3azFJSTFLLXfSAQA?oc=5" target="_blank">Scooter Braun "Frustrated" With Scott Borchetta Over Taylor Swift Feud | E!

But internally, the Vatican bank and auditor general's office raised an alarm with Vatican prosecutors that the buyout looked suspicious, sparking the raids on AIF and the secretariat of state.</p><p>As a result, the Vatican investigation appears more the result of an internal turf battle — between the Vatican bank on one side, and the secretariat of state and AIF on the other — over the secretariat of state's sizeable financial assets, which are kept outside the bank and off the Vatican's balance sheet.</p><p>The Swiss-born Bruelhart, dubbed the 007 of anti-money laundering efforts by some media, had joined the Vatican in 2012 to help turn around its reputation as a scandal-marred offshore tax haven. Under his leadership, the Vatican won coveted membership in the Egmont Group, which groups financial information agencies from 130 countries to share information in the global fight against money laundering and terror financing.</p><p>Then-Pope Benedict XVI created AIF in 2010 as part of the Vatican's push to comply with international norms to fight money laundering.</p><p>Bruelhart's departure, coupled with the continued suspension of the AIF's director di Ruzza, means that the AIF is without a leader going into a crucial period of consultations with Moneyval evaluators ahead of a regularly scheduled on-site visit early next year.<br />  </p> Pope Francis has replaced the head of the Vatican's financial watchdog agency amid continuing fallout from a controversial Vatican police raid on his offices Chinese ambassador to UK accuses Britain of covertly backing Hong Kong protesters https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/11/18/chinese-ambassador-uk-accused-britain-covertly-backing-hong/ World news breaking world news latest world news from the US Europe Asia Australia Africa urn:uuid:d621e21e-f825-72c6-c03d-0bf79775827f Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:53:00 -0500 topics:places/hong-kong storytype:standard topics:in-the-news/hong-kong-protests structure:news/world-news structure:news topics:places/asia topics:places/china Roland Oliphant Justice Department to Terminate Longstanding Legal Rules for Movie Distribution - Wall Street Journal https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMieGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lndzai5jb20vYXJ0aWNsZXMvanVzdGljZS1kZXBhcnRtZW50LXRvLXRlcm1pbmF0ZS1sb25nc3RhbmRpbmctbGVnYWwtcnVsZXMtZm9yLW1vdmllLWRpc3RyaWJ1dGlvbi0xMTU3NDExMDM5M9IBfGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lndzai5jb20vYW1wL2FydGljbGVzL2p1c3RpY2UtZGVwYXJ0bWVudC10by10ZXJtaW5hdGUtbG9uZ3N0YW5kaW5nLWxlZ2FsLXJ1bGVzLWZvci1tb3ZpZS1kaXN0cmlidXRpb24tMTE1NzQxMTAzOTM?oc=5 Google News - World urn:uuid:d5031ae8-fe16-1f09-4f29-eae3d4e42025 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:53:00 -0500 <a href="https://news.google.com/__i/rss/rd/articles/CBMieGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lndzai5jb20vYXJ0aWNsZXMvanVzdGljZS1kZXBhcnRtZW50LXRvLXRlcm1pbmF0ZS1sb25nc3RhbmRpbmctbGVnYWwtcnVsZXMtZm9yLW1vdmllLWRpc3RyaWJ1dGlvbi0xMTU3NDExMDM5M9IBfGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lndzai5jb20vYW1wL2FydGljbGVzL2p1c3RpY2UtZGVwYXJ0bWVudC10by10ZXJtaW5hdGUtbG9uZ3N0YW5kaW5nLWxlZ2FsLXJ1bGVzLWZvci1tb3ZpZS1kaXN0cmlidXRpb24tMTE1NzQxMTAzOTM?oc=5" target="_blank">Justice Department to Terminate Longstanding Legal Rules for Movie Distribution</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">Wall Street Journal</font><strong><a href="https://news.google.com/stories/CAAqcggKImxDQklTU3pvSmMzUnZjbmt0TXpZd1NqNEtFUWo4a3JLN2pvQU1FZC01RjFoay1ab1ZFaWxLZFhOMGFXTmxJRVJsY0hRdUlIUnZJR1Z1WkNCbWFXeHRJR052Ym5ObGJuUWdaR1ZqY21WbGN5Z0FQAQ?oc=5" target="_blank">View full coverage on Google News</a></strong> Italy busts international antiquity smuggling ring https://www.dw.com/en/italy-busts-international-antiquity-smuggling-ring/a-51304900?maca=en-rss-en-top-1022-rdf Deutsche Welle: DW-WORLD.DE - Top Stories urn:uuid:9774d907-1aa3-d3b3-69da-eec772892747 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:52:00 -0500 Police found 10,000 ancient Roman artifacts and arrested 23 suspects.

The move will likely anger Palestinians and put the U.S. at odds with other nations working to end the conflict.</p><p>The Trump administration views the opinion, the basis for long-standing U.S. opposition to expanding the settlements, as a distraction and believes any legal questions about the issue should be addressed by Israeli courts, according to a draft of Pompeo's remarks on the policy obtained by The Associated Press.</p><p>“Calling the establishment of civilian settlements inconsistent with international law has not advanced the cause of peace” Pompeo says in the draft. “The hard truth is that there will never be a judicial resolution to the conflict, and arguments about who is right and who is wrong as a matter of international law will not bring peace.”</p><p>U.S. administration moves that have weakened Palestinian efforts to achieve statehood have included President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the movement of the U.S. Embassy to that city and the closure of the Palestinian diplomatic office in Washington.</p><p>Even though the decision is largely symbolic, it could also give a boost to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is fighting for his political survival after he was unable to form a coalition government following recent elections.</p><p>In addition, it could spell further trouble for the administration's oft-promised peace plan, which is unlikely to gather much international support by endorsing a position contrary to the global consensus.</p><figure role="group" class="embedded-entity align-left div"><div><figure class="media media--type-image media--view-mode-" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject"><a data-size="4003x2669" href="https://media.voltron.voanews.com/Drupal/01live-166/styles/sourced/s3/2019-11/ap_israel_netanyahu_03Nov19.jpg?itok=1G1zYtr9"><div><img alt="Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chairs the weekly cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister's office in Jerusalem, Nov. 3, 2019.

It had been the basis for more than 40 years of carefully worded U.S. opposition to settlement construction that had varied in its tone and strength depending on the president's position.</p><p>The international community overwhelmingly considers the settlements illegal. This is based in part on the Fourth Geneva Convention, which bars an occupying power from transferring parts of its own civilian population to occupied territory.</p><p>In the final days of the Obama administration, the U.S. allowed the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution declaring the settlements a “flagrant violation” of international law.</p><p>Pompeo was expected to say that the U.S. would not take a position on the legality of specific settlements and that that the new policy would not extend beyond the West Bank and create a precedent for other territorial disputes.</p><p>He also planned to say that the decision did not mean the administration was prejudging the status of the West Bank in any eventual Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.</p><p>The shift is a victory for Netanyahu, a longtime booster of the settlements, and had been strongly supported by U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and big Trump donor Sheldon Adelson. Friedman was a major fundraiser for the settlements before becoming ambassador.</p><p>It may be taken by Netanyahu and the settlement movement as a green light for additional construction, or even annexation, of lands claimed by the Palestinians for a future state.</p><p>The anti-settlement monitoring group Peace Now, along with AP reporting, has found a sharp increase in settlement planning and construction since Trump took office.</p><p>For Netanyahu, the welcome boost comes at a time when he has been weakened domestically by mounting legal woes and two inconclusive elections this year.</p><figure role="group" class="embedded-entity align-left div"><div><figure class="media media--type-image media--view-mode-" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject"><a data-size="2958x1972" href="https://media.voltron.voanews.com/Drupal/01live-166/styles/sourced/s3/2019-10/reu_gantz.jpg?itok=UhpZCRc8"><div><img alt="Benny Gantz, leader of Blue and White party, speaks at the President's residence, in Jerusalem, Oct. 23, 2019." height="273" layout="responsive" src="https://media.voltron.voanews.com/Drupal/01live-166/styles/sourced_410px_wide/s3/2019-10/reu_gantz.jpg?itok=Sq7-kuWb" width="410" /></div></a></figure></div><figcaption>Benny Gantz, leader of Blue and White party, speaks at the President's residence, in Jerusalem, Oct. 23, 2019.</figcaption></figure><p>Unable to secure a parliamentary majority, Netanyahu is now anxiously waiting to see if his chief rival, Benny Gantz, can put together a coalition.

Here's how computer scientists have learned from their dangers as well. <aside class="right-rail__container right-rail__container--ad"><div class="right-rail__ad__wrapper right-rail__module"><div class="right-rail__ad" id="right-rail__ad-5730790"></div></div><br /> <div class="OUTBRAIN right-rail__outbrain right-rail__module" data-src="https://time.com/5730790/banana-panama-disease/" data-widget-id="SB_2" data-ob-template="timemag"></div></aside> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">The banana has been the subject of Andy Warhol&rsquo;s cover art for the Velvet Underground&rsquo;s debut album, can arguably be the most devastating item in the Mario Kart video game franchise and is </span><a href="https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/urban-expeditions/food/food-journeys-graphic/" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight:400;">one of the world&#8217;s most consumed fruits</span></a><span style="font-weight:400;">. And humanity&#8217;s love of bananas may still be on the rise, according to data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. On average, says Chris Barrett, a professor of agriculture at Cornell University, citing that U.N. data, every person on earth chows down on 130 bananas a year, at a rate of nearly three a week.</span><br /> <div class="article-video ad_brightcove_video right-rail-adjacent"><div id="ad_brightcove" class="ad_brightcove_video-wrapper"></div></div></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">But the banana as we know it may also be on the verge of extinction. The situation led Colombia&mdash;where the economy relies heavily on the crop, as it does in several other countries including Ecuador, Costa Rica and Guatemala&mdash;to declare a national state of emergency in August. Banana experts around the world have raised concerns that it may be too late to reverse the damage. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">The reason for the problem comes down to a single disease, but it also has far-reaching implications&mdash;and the world is watching. Even if the world&rsquo;s relationship to bananas may never be the same, the lessons of the fruit can still save us from damage that could hit far beyond the produce aisle.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">&ldquo;The story of the banana is really the story of modern agriculture exemplified in a single fruit,&rdquo; says </span><span style="font-weight:400;">Daniel</span><span style="font-weight:400;"> Bebber, who leads the </span><a href="https://danbebber.org/projects/bananex/" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight:400;">BananEx research group</span></a><span style="font-weight:400;"> at the University of Exeter. &ldquo;It has all of the ingredients of equitability and sustainability issues, disease pressure, and climate change impact all in one. It&#8217;s a very good lesson for us.&rdquo;</span></p> <p><strong>Ninety-nine percent</strong><span style="font-weight:400;"><strong> of exported bananas</strong> are a variety called the Cavendish&mdash;the attractive, golden-yellow fruit seen in the supermarket today. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">But that wasn&rsquo;t always the case. There are many varieties of banana in the world, and until the later half of the 19th century, the dominant one was called the Gros Michel. It was widely considered tastier than the Cavendish, and more difficult to bruise. But in the 1950s, the crop was swept by a strain of Panama disease, also known as banana wilt, brought on by the spread of a noxious, soil-inhabiting fungus. </span><span style="font-weight:400;">Desperate for a solution, the world&rsquo;s banana farmers turned to the Cavendish. The Cavendish was resistant to the disease and fit other market needs: it could stay green for several weeks after being harvested (ideal for shipments to Europe), it had a high yield rate and it looked good in stores. Plus, multinational fruit companies had no other disease-resistant variety available that could be ready quickly for mass exportation. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">The switched worked. As the Gros Michel was ravaged by disease, the Cavendish banana took over the world&rsquo;s markets and kitchens. In fact, the entire banana supply chain is now set up to suit the very specific needs of that variety. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">To the people who pay attention to such things, it wasn&rsquo;t long before a case of banana d&eacute;j&agrave; vu set in: the Cavendish had supplanted the Gros Michel, but&mdash;even though it had initially been selected for being disease-resistant&mdash;it was still at risk. Almost a decade ago, Dan Koeppel, author of </span><i><span style="font-weight:400;">Banana: The Fate of the Fruit That Changed the World</span></i><span style="font-weight:400;">, warned in an </span><a href="https://www.npr.org/2011/08/30/139787380/bananas-the-uncertain-future-of-a-favorite-fruit" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight:400;">NPR interview</span></a><span style="font-weight:400;"> that Panama Disease would return to the world&#8217;s largest banana exporters, and this time with a strain that would hit the Cavendish hard. &#8220;[Every] single banana scientist I spoke to&mdash;and that was quite a few&mdash;says it&#8217;s not an &#8216;if,&#8217; it&#8217;s a &#8216;when,&#8217; and 10 to 30 years,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;It only takes a single clump of contaminated dirt, literally, to get this thing rampaging across entire continents.&rdquo; </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">Sure enough, the confirmation of the presence of Tropical Race 4 (TR4), another strain of Panama disease, on banana farms in Colombia, prompted this summer&rsquo;s declaration of emergency there. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">&ldquo;The situation is very urgent,&rdquo; says Bebber.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">There are any number of ways the problem can spread. When it comes to bananas, everything from truck tires to workers&rsquo; boots can be disease carriers. But the bigger problem is how hard it is to stop. Because banana farmers are overwhelmingly growing the same exact crop&mdash;the Cavendish&mdash;they were all vulnerable to the same diseases. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">&ldquo;A lot of people would agree that we need to move to a more diverse, more sustainable system for bananas and agriculture in general,&rdquo; says Bebber, &ldquo;where we don&rsquo;t put all our hope into a single, genetically identical crop.&rdquo;</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;"><strong>There&rsquo;s a name for this situation</strong>:</span> <span style="font-weight:400;">monoculture, the practice of fostering just one variety of something. Monoculture has its benefits. The entire system is standard, so there&rsquo;s rarely new production and maintenance processes, and everything is compatible and familiar to users. On the other hand, as banana farmers learned, in a monoculture, all instances are prone to the same set of attacks. If someone or something figures out how to affect just one, the entire system is put at risk.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">And as the banana industry has begun to battle the effects of monoculture, someone else has taken notice: the tech world. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">The parallel was noticed as early as the late 1990s. Stephanie Forrest, one of the early researchers in this area, commonly cites the banana problem in lectures explaining the importance of diversity in computer systems. Forrest argues that some of the most notorious software attacks in history are comparable to Panama disease&rsquo;s threat to the Cavendish; uniform software systems lead to uniform vulnerabilities. For example, the 1988 Morris Worm infected an estimated 10% of all computers connected to the Internet within just 24 hours, and, more recently, the 2016 Mirai Botnet, which allowed an outside party to remotely control a network of internet-connected devices, brought down Twitter, Netflix, CNN and more. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">&ldquo;Monocultures are dangerous in almost every facet of life,&rdquo; echoes Fred B. Schneider, a cybersecurity expert at Cornell University. &ldquo;With people, of course, populations are stronger and more disease-resistant if there&rsquo;s more genetic diversity. And with transportation, it&rsquo;s more effective to have several different options&mdash;when a train line is shut down, if you have other choices at your disposal, like a car or another form of transit, you won&rsquo;t be stuck.&rdquo; </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">Schneider points out that software monocultures are common because, without them, using your computer would be a lot harder. Default configuration settings, for example, are the norm to help users who may not be experts in the technology they&rsquo;re using. Defaults like that can protect people from some problems, but also lead to others, as all the systems using the same default are vulnerable to the same problems. </span><span style="font-weight:400;">Knowledge of the problem, thanks to understanding of the issues facing crops like bananas, have led technologists to take steps to introduce artificial diversity into their systems. &ldquo;To make a system artificially diverse, you just rearrange its guts in ways where the differences do not affect functionality in a material way,&rdquo; Schneider says. Microsoft implemented one of the first large-scale commercial developments of artificial diversity in their Windows OS system, by randomizing the internal locations where important pieces of system data were stored.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;"><strong>For bananas, addressing the problems</strong> caused by monoculture may be harder, as market standards and supply chains make it very expensive for fruit companies to cultivate multiple varieties.</span></p> <figure class="inline-portrait_small_2x aligncenter "><img data-attachment-id="5730804" data-permalink="https://time.com/5730790/banana-panama-disease/banana-industry-in-the-caribbean/" data-orig-file="https://timedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2019/11/gettyimages-156543306.jpg?quality=85" data-orig-size="1024,683" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta='{"aperture":"0","credit":"LatinContent via Getty Images","camera":"","caption":"ARACATACA, COLOMBIA - MARCH 14: A Colombian worker carries crude bananas to a transport car at a banana plantation on March 14, 2006 in Aracataca, Colombia.

Still, that&rsquo;s a process that can take 15 to 20 years, Bebber estimates. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">Genetic engineering can lead to the development of new varieties at much faster rates than traditional breeding methods, but it can also turn consumers off. However, it has been the answer to similar problems in the past&mdash;for example, when the papaya ringspot virus threatened the papaya supply in the 1990s, &ldquo;the major supply shock was averted through the development of a transgenic ringspot virus-resistant papaya,&rdquo; explains Cornell&rsquo;s Barrett. He believes that consumers&#8217; fears might ease if it becomes one of the only viable answers to the issues created by monoculture production. The UK-based biotech company Tropic Biosciences has received $10 million in funding to use gene-editing technology to research solutions to widespread issues with tropical crops, focusing specially on disease resistance in bananas.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">And while even the most Cavendish-like of FHIA&rsquo;s disease-resistant varieties, a banana known as the FHIA-18, hasn&rsquo;t yet met the standards of multinational buyers, that may change, according to Adolfo Martinez, director general of FHIA. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s still not close enough to the Cavendish,&rdquo; he says, but he thinks the crisis may convince them. &ldquo;Maybe now, companies will be more interested in it.&rdquo;</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">So, what&rsquo;s next for the banana?

Photograph: Patrick McMullan/Patrick McMullan via Getty ImagesPrince Andrew’s recent interview about his relationship with alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein has sparked many questions but one stands out: what happened to Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite friend of the prince who is accused of procuring victims for the disgraced financier.The Duke of York admitted ties to Maxwell and Epstein during the bombshell BBC Newsnight interview – while adamantly denying wrongdoing and expressing regret for continued association with Epstein.Andrew said he met Epstein through Maxwell, the daughter of late media baron Robert Maxwell. Maxwell has vehemently denied allegations of wrongdoing but her current whereabouts are unknown, with media reports placing sightings of her in various cities in the US and Europe.Epstein committed suicide in a Manhattan jail several months ago, following his arrest on federal sex trafficking charges.At the center of this controversy is Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, who claims Maxwell recruited her to work as his masseuse when she was 15 years old. Giuffre has alleged that a sexual encounter took place with Andrew around 2001, when she was 17.Giuffre claims Epstein flew her to London on his private Jet. After dining with the prince and dancing with him at the Tramp nightclub, she claims, they had a sexual encounter in Maxwell’s Belgravia house.Prince Andrew stands with Virginia Giuffre while Ghislaine Maxwell smiles in the background. Photograph: REX/ShutterstockA photo of Andrew posing with his hand around the teen Giuffre was purportedly taken at Maxwell’s home – she is seen smiling in the background. Andrew said in the Newsnight interview he last had contact with Maxwell earlier this year, prior to Epstein’s arrest.Multiple women in addition to Giuffre have alleged Maxwell enabled Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, either recruiting them directly or planning visits to his homes.Yet Maxwell’s fate remains an almost complete mystery. She has been the target of civil lawsuits but she has not been charged. And while she presently faces civil litigation, the likelihood of a court appearance is unknown. Her last public appearance seems to have been at a Los Angeles fast food restaurant in August, though doubts have been raised about the veracity of that sighting.Multiple attorneys listed for Maxwell did not immediately respond to requests for comment.Federal authorities have said the investigation into Epstein’s sex trafficking is ongoing. But, officially, their comment is general and does not relate specifically to Maxwell or anyone else.Legal opinions about whether Andrew could face legal trouble in the US are split and Maxwell’s role in any legal move against the prince are unclear – though she would likely be vital to such a ploy.Mitchell Garabedian, the Boston lawyer who exposed Catholic clergy sex abuse, said in an email attorneys would want to locate Maxwell in the US, as courts here would have legal power to get her to testify. “Certainly, given Ms Maxwell’s central role in the Epstein matter, what Ms Maxwell has to say as a witness about Prince Andrew’s involvement will greatly affect the opinions of countless others whether connected to law enforcement or otherwise,” Garabedian wrote.Asked whether this meant Andrew was exposed to US legal liability, Garabedian said, “It depends on the facts.”Paul Shechtman, a veteran criminal law attorney who teaches criminal procedure at Columbia University Law School, said that while pursuing a case against Maxwell likely appeals to the federal prosecutors who arrested Epstein, targeting Andrew might not.“Everything points to the fact that she is a serious subject of the southern district [of New York]’s investigation and at the same time, and for a variety of reasons, I don’t think he is,” Shechtman said.Authorities would have to prove Andrew knew someone was underage, Shechtman said, and “as a general matter, having sexual relations with someone who’s underage is a state crime and not a federal crime.“I think his exposure for a federal prosecution is quite small indeed,” he said, adding. “I think he can continue to be a prince.”Rebecca Roiphe, a professor of law at New York Law School and former assistant district attorney in Manhattan, said Andrew’s links to Maxwell meant he was caught up in the scandal, regardless of his links to Epstein. But that did not necessarily mean he would face charges.“The mere fact that Prince Andrew was friends with Maxwell and she was allegedly involved in Epstein’s conduct does not itself prove Prince Andrew’s involvement,” she said in an email. “But it certainly raises questions that will affect publicity and in this particular case publicity is, on its own, quite powerful.”Certainly Andrew’s Newsnight interview was a blow in the global courtroom of public opinion. But amid the fallout from such a catastrophic PR blunder, another uncomfortable fact emerged. With Epstein dead and Maxwell missing, Andrew has become the most public face of an ongoing investigation.“Of course, if it’s proved that Andrew was involved with Maxwell and Epstein in the alleged criminal acts then he could face criminal liability,” Roiphe continued.“Prosecutors are eager to hold someone responsible for Epstein’s alleged crimes. Maxwell is an obvious choice now that Epstein is dead but she is unavailable, which may mean that Prince Andrew is high on their list.”Meanwhile, Epstein’s estate is facing numerous lawsuits from women who say he sexually abused them, many while they were underage. On Monday, a new lawsuit was filed by a woman identified as Jane Doe, who alleged that Epstein assaulted her at his New Mexico ranch when she was 15.“Jane Doe was only 15 years old when Jeffrey Epstein preyed upon her, trafficked her and sexually abused her,” said the accuser’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, at a news conference. “She wants to speak her truth and encourage other underage victims of Jeffrey Epstein who have not yet asserted their legal rights.”<p><br clear="all"> <p><a href="https://news.yahoo.com/ghislaine-maxwell-center-epstein-controversy-201955473.html"><img src="http://l.yimg.com/uu/api/res/1.2/6WqKvP4o9qY5GnpjhRNmLg--/YXBwaWQ9eXRhY2h5b247aD04Njt3PTEzMDs-/https://media.zenfs.com/en-GB/the_guardian_765/411097e2e7ea235646ea9d108de9f08b" width="130" height="86" alt="Ghislaine Maxwell is at the center of the Epstein controversy, but she&#39;s in hiding" align="left" title="Ghislaine Maxwell is at the center of the Epstein controversy, but she&#39;s in hiding" border="0" ></a>The British socialite friend of Prince Andrew is accused of recruiting girls for the disgraced financier’s sex trafficking ring Ghislaine Maxwell is accused of recruiting girls for Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.

But amid the fallout from such a catastrophic PR blunder, another uncomfortable fact emerged. With Epstein dead and Maxwell missing, Andrew has become the most public face of an ongoing investigation.“Of course, if it’s proved that Andrew was involved with Maxwell and Epstein in the alleged criminal acts then he could face criminal liability,” Roiphe continued.“Prosecutors are eager to hold someone responsible for Epstein’s alleged crimes. Maxwell is an obvious choice now that Epstein is dead but she is unavailable, which may mean that Prince Andrew is high on their list.”Meanwhile, Epstein’s estate is facing numerous lawsuits from women who say he sexually abused them, many while they were underage. On Monday, a new lawsuit was filed by a woman identified as Jane Doe, who alleged that Epstein assaulted her at his New Mexico ranch when she was 15.“Jane Doe was only 15 years old when Jeffrey Epstein preyed upon her, trafficked her and sexually abused her,” said the accuser’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, at a news conference. “She wants to speak her truth and encourage other underage victims of Jeffrey Epstein who have not yet asserted their legal rights.”<p><br clear="all"> Companies pull support for Prince Andrew's networking event https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/18/business/prince-andrew-pitch-at-palace/index.html CNN.com urn:uuid:3e67a0df-a39a-6331-1e2c-7cebd0e2aa95 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:19:11 -0500 Accounting firm KPMG has dropped its support of Prince Andrew's Pitch@Palace networking event, severing ties with the Duke of York before his controversial interview with the BBC on Saturday.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:KjOGCqIRYe4:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:KjOGCqIRYe4:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:KjOGCqIRYe4:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=aMb39hTcpUE:KjOGCqIRYe4:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:KjOGCqIRYe4:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:KjOGCqIRYe4:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=aMb39hTcpUE:KjOGCqIRYe4:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/rss/cnn_topstories/~4/aMb39hTcpUE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> Companies pull support for Prince Andrew's networking event after controversial interview https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/18/business/prince-andrew-pitch-at-palace/index.html CNN.com urn:uuid:00510417-e4dd-760e-940a-27b045f3adc5 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:19:11 -0500 Accounting firm KPMG has dropped its support of Prince Andrew's Pitch@Palace networking event, severing ties with the Duke of York before his controversial interview with the BBC on Saturday.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:EHg7CeYE4Lw:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:EHg7CeYE4Lw:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:EHg7CeYE4Lw:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=aMb39hTcpUE:EHg7CeYE4Lw:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:EHg7CeYE4Lw:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.cnn.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?a=aMb39hTcpUE:EHg7CeYE4Lw:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/rss/cnn_topstories?i=aMb39hTcpUE:EHg7CeYE4Lw:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/rss/cnn_topstories/~4/aMb39hTcpUE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> Pompeo bends toward Israel with new U.S. stance toward settlements https://www.politico.com/news/2019/11/18/pompeo-israel-policy-settlements-071382 Top Stories urn:uuid:1d86d501-d5b3-2434-5a37-db8f675912c8 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:17:25 -0500 The U.S. is rejecting a prior legal opinion that calls Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank "inconsistent with international law." <img src="https://static.politico.com/bf/15/46debf5c40f3b26027c5fd15dff6/20191118-mike-pompeo-gty-773.jpg"/><br><p>Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday that the Trump administration would ease its stance on U.S. policy toward Israel, rejecting a 1978 State Department legal opinion that categorically calls Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank &quot;inconsistent with international law.&quot; </p><p>In an address at the State Department, Pompeo stated that the decision, which is a major boon to Israel and is sure to spark outrage from Palestinians, was not made lightly. </p><p>&quot;The conclusion that we will no longer recognize as per se inconsistent with international law is based on the unique facts, history, and circumstances prevented by the establishment of civilian settlements in the West Bank,&quot; he said, adding that the administration &quot;carefully&quot; studied all sides of the legal debate surrounding the stance. </p><p>Pompeo argued that Israeli courts were equipped to resolve disputes on the legality of individual settlements, but also warned that the policy shift should not be viewed as the U.S. &quot;prejudging the ultimate status of the West Bank.&quot; </p><p>That, he said, &quot;is for the Israelis and Palestinians to negotiate.&quot; </p><p>It was a reversal from the Obama administration, which in December 2016 allowed the U.N. Security Council to adopt a resolution declaring settlement activity a &quot;flagrant violation&quot; of international law with &quot;no legal validity.&quot; Pompeo framed the decision as confronting an inconsistency in U.S. policy, noting that shortly after the 1978 opinion from the Carter administration, President Ronald Reagan disagreed with that position just three years later.</p><p>&quot;Subsequent administrations recognize that unrestrained settlement activity could be an obstacle to peace,&quot; he noted, pointing to the Obama administration move as a departure from that stance. But the shift is also a contrast with the position taken by the rest of the international community. </p><p>Just last week, a <a href="https://apnews.com/977d91e19d6c4f3c8eb9eb0d1491184a" target="_blank">top European Union court ruled</a> that member states must begin identifying products made in Israeli settlements by labeling them as such, a decision the State Department called deeply concerning. The EU also opposes Israeli settlement expansions, something that Pompeo’s announcement could help pave the way for. </p><p>Monday’s announcement is a welcome development for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is fighting for political survival after being unable to form a coalition government following two elections this year and facing legal issues. </p><p>&quot;It just shows that this administration is completely out of step with where the international community is and with where our own policy consistently since 1967 has been,&quot; said Gerald Feierstein, a former senior State Department official who dealt with Middle East issues. &quot;The reality is that the settlements are a clear violation of international law and nobody else in the world is going to be influenced by a statement to the contrary.&quot;</p><br><p>The announcement is simply the latest step the Trump administration has taken to assuage the Israeli government while pressuring the Palestinians. Critics say the moves have dramatically undermined the viability of a future two-state solution by ignoring Palestinian claims to territory.</p><p>The moves have included recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, ending foreign aid to the Palestinians, shuttering the Palestinians' office in Washington, and recognizing Israel's annexation of the Golan Heights, which are claimed by Syria. The administration has also stopped referring to the West Bank as being &quot;occupied&quot; and tried to redefine who counts as a Palestinian refugee.</p><p>Perhaps the clearest signal that the Trump administration is not interested in a future Palestinian state is that the elements of its Middle East peace plan put forward by Trump son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner do not refer to a two-state solution. Instead, the section of the Kushner plan revealed so far has focused on economics and promising the Palestinians a brighter material future if not political rights.</p><p>Pompeo asserted Monday that the move was taken in part because &quot;calling the establishment of civilian settlements inconsistent with international law hasn't worked, hasn't advanced the cause of peace.&quot; He added that a &quot;complex political problem&quot; remains, but said that while the U.S. will continue to help facilitate peace between the two sides, Israel and the Palestinians needed to negotiate between themselves. </p><p>&quot;The hard truth is, there will never be a judicial resolution to the conflict in arguments about who was right and wrong as a matter of international law, will not bring peace,&quot; Pompeo said Monday. </p><br><p>Article originally published on <a href="http://www.politico.com/magazine/">POLITICO Magazine</a></p> Nahal Toosi The World of Dance in Letters, Locations and Clothes - The New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/18/books/review/love-icebox-laura-kuhn-ballerina-project-dane-shitagi-style-of-movement-ken-browar-deborah-ory.html world - Google News urn:uuid:3c3caaa5-df0b-b37b-31af-4e9f94b19d9c Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:17:00 -0500 <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/18/books/review/love-icebox-laura-kuhn-ballerina-project-dane-shitagi-style-of-movement-ken-browar-deborah-ory.html" target="_blank">The World of Dance in Letters, Locations and Clothes</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#6f6f6f">The New York Times</font> 3 dead including suspect in shooting outside Oklahoma Walmart https://abcnews.go.com/US/shooting-oklahoma-walmart-leaves-dead-including-suspect/story?id=67106789 ABC News: ABCNews urn:uuid:d6508f6e-496c-b0be-de06-ed1a3834b910 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 15:14:03 -0500 Walmart confirmed that the shooting occurred in the parking lot.
