Jerusalem – On Friday afternoon, local Palestinians were joined by Israelis and international activists for a march to save Khirbet Susiya, the latest village scheduled to come under the Israeli bulldozers.The village which sits on rocky hills in south Hebron is home to over 300 Palestinians, who have already faced many expulsions in the past. In 1983, the Israeli settlement Susiya was established near the village. Three years later Israel declared the village an ‘archeological site’ expelling 25 families from it. Many resettled in caves nearby and created makeshift homes using tents. The families have faced more expulsions since then. In the latest attempt to have the residents removed, an Israeli policymaker is said to have visited the families on 12 July to announce a demolition order; due to be carried out after the Muslim Eid festival.Palestinian speakers told the 600 supporters who marched with them about their ‘ongoing nakba’. They expressed gratitude to the international community who joined them ‘because the villagers choose to stand up’ to their oppressors. Osman Yousef, a Palestinian who lives in a nearby village was among the marchers. He said he still has land in Susiya, which the Israeli state grands him a permit to visit once a year. I asked him about what he does on that one day, he shrugged his shoulders at first and said, ‘what can you do?’ Then continued to say, ‘I get volunteers to help me pick as much olives as I can’.The Israelis marching, who were in the majority, were determined to show not all Israelis backed the current treatment of the Palestinians. An Israeli lady, who carried a placard that read, ‘There is another way’ told me it was ‘important to show the world there are other Israelis’.The villagers hope pressure from the international community will stop the demolition of their village this time.

___US stock market notches best week since late NovemberNEW YORK — Wall Street turned the page on a painful May in the stock market by notching its best week since late November. Stocks climbed for a fourth consecutive day Friday, capping a week of gains that reversed most losses from the escalation of the U.S. trade war with China and Mexico in May. The latest rally came after a report showed that the U.S. added fewer jobs than expected last month. The report appeared to increase the odds that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates in coming months.___Why Trump’s trade wars are pressuring both economy and FedWASHINGTON (AP) — A sharp pullback in U.S. hiring for May delivered a jolt of disappointment. It intensified concerns that the economy has weakened and that many employers have grown nervous, in part because of President Donald Trump’s escalating trade wars. Yet the stock market soared and bond yields fell because the tepid employment report magnified expectations that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates in the coming months, perhaps beginning in July, to support the economy.___Trump: ‘Good chance’ now for tariff deal with MexicoWASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump now says “there is a good chance” the U.S. will strike a deal with Mexico to avert the tariffs he’s threatened to impose Monday as he tries to force the U.S. ally to stem the flow of Central American migrants into the United States. He tweeted the assessment as he returned to Washington from Europe Friday. Without a deal, a 5% tariffs on Mexican goods will kick in Monday.___US hiring slows amid trade rifts and weaker global economyWASHINGTON (AP) — The tepid job growth in May, along with rising pressures on the economy, makes it more likely that the Federal Reserve will cut rates in the coming months. Bond yields fell after the jobs data was released, signalling expectations for lower Fed rates. Last month, U.S. employers added just 75,000 jobs, a sign that businesses have become more cautious in the face of weaker global growth and widening trade conflicts.___Boeing wanted to wait 3 years to fix safety alert on 737 MaxCHICAGO (AP) — Boeing knew of a flaw in a 737 Max safety alert system in 2017 but planned to wait three years to fix it. Two key members of Congress say the company only decided to speed up a fix to the problem after a Max crashed in Indonesia. Another crashed five months later in Ethiopia. In all, 346 people died.___Mexico’s tequila exporters warily eye US tariffs deadlineEL ARENAL, Mexico (AP) — Mexican exporters of tequila are worried about possible slumping revenues and job losses because of threatened U.S. tariffs on all imports from the country. Multiple tequila industry insiders say privately that some companies have even been rushing to export as much as they could ahead of a Monday deadline, though most of this year’s inventory is likely already in the U.S. so the biggest impact would be on next year’s supply.___FedEx will stop air shipments of packages for AmazonNASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — FedEx says it will end air shipment of packages in the U.S. for Amazon when the contract expires June 30. The move comes as the online retail giant expands its own delivery capabilities. Amazon says only that it respects FedEx’s decision and thanks the delivery company for serving its customers over the years.___Facebook stops Huawei from pre-installing apps on phonesLONDON (AP) — Facebook has dealt Huawei a fresh blow. Facebook has stopped letting its apps come pre-installed on smartphones sold by Huawei to comply with U.S. restrictions. The social network says it suspended providing software for Huawei to put on its devices while it reviews recently introduced U.S. sanctions. Facebook says users can still download Facebook on their own.___Trade war clouds outlook as finance chiefs meet in JapanFUKUOKA, Japan (AP) — Finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in Japan this weekend will try to make headway on longstanding issues such as how much global giants like Facebook and Amazon should pay in taxes. They’re likely to end up focusing much of their attention on how to keep global growth on track when the world’s two biggest economies are entrenched in an escalating trade war.___Europe shows challenges for US regulators targeting Big TechLONDON (AP) — As U.S. regulators prepare to investigate big tech companies like Google and Amazon, they’ll look to Europe for lessons. European Union regulators have led global efforts to rein in Big Tech with only mixed results. The big technology companies’ power appears undiminished, underscoring the challenge for U.S. regulators.___The S&P 500 index rose 29.85 points, or 1.1%, to 2,873.34. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 263.28 points, or 1%, to 25,983.94. The Nasdaq composite climbed 126.55 points, or 1.7%, to 7,742.10. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies picked up 10.85 points, or 0.7%, to 1,514.39.The Associated Press

Women who drink two glasses of wine a night should be sent for scans by their GPs to check for cirrhosis, new NHS guidance says.The advice from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice) says around 2 million people are drinking at levels which put them at risk of potentially fatal disease.GPs are being told that men who drink three pints of beer a night, and women consuming two glasses of wine nightly are among those who should be sent for checks for scarring to the liver, also known as cirrhosis.Britain is the worst country in the western world for heavy drinking among professional women, with those with a good education twice as likely to be problem drinkers, research shows.Britain is the worst country in the western world for heavy drinking among professional women, with those with a good education twice as likely to be problem drinkers, research shows.But last night Nice was accused of needlessly frightening those who enjoyed a drink, in a “colossal waste of NHS resources,” with critics saying such checks were too indiscriminate.It follows a recent clampdowns on recommended safe limits for alcohol, amid warnings from the chief medical officer to “do as I do” and think about the risks of cancer before having a drink. He called on retailers to do more to help drinkers cut back, criticising discounts for those buying more than six bottles of wine at a time.“Clearly, some of us really do need to cut back, but we can’t just blame ordinary drinkers. Supermarkets need to take their share of responsibility too,” he said.Christopher Snowdon, head of lifestyle economics at the Institute of Economic Affairs criticised the recommendations.“The average liver cirrhosis patients drinks vastly more than 35 units a week. Unnecessarily testing millions of people on the basis of an arbitrary target would be a colossal waste of NHS resources,” he said. One in five women in England who has been to university regularly drinks too much, the report found – compared with one in ten of those with lower levels of education.The research found that the link between high levels of education among women and hazardous drinking was stronger in this country than in any other.Mark Pearson, OECD head of health, said the trends reflected “the dark side of equality” with middle-class women risking their health as they adopted traditional male drinking habits. “There are chronic drinkers out there who would benefit from a liver test, but these people should be referred by their GP. The health service has a limited budget. It should target people who need help rather than indiscriminately those who do not.”Dave Roberts, director general of industry body, the Alcohol Information Partnership, said the advice was “confusing,” and at odds with the Government advice in using different thresholds for men and women.“The majority of people in the UK enjoy a drink in a convivial and moderate manner as part of a healthy lifestyle,” he said, with recent data showing the vast majority of men and women drink less than 14 units a week.The draft quality standard, out for consultation until February, also calls for all those diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to be regularly tested for advanced liver fibrosis – so they can be given help to prevent it developing into cirrhosis.Professor Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive of Nice said: “Many people with liver disease do not show symptoms until it is too late.“If it is tackled at an early stage, simple lifestyle changes or treatments can be enough for the liver to recover. Early diagnosis is vital, as is action to both prevent and halt the damage that drinking too much alcohol can do.Last year research by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development found Britain is the worst country in the western world for heavy drinking among professional women.The OECD research shows women in this country are twice as likely to be problem drinkers if they have a good education.Authors warned that Britain is one of the few countries in the world in which professional women appear to be drinking to keep up with men.

The new study says 13 pints of high strength cider can be bought for the price of a cinema ticketCredit:Eddie Mulholland Britain’s binge drinking levels are among the highest in the world, international research has found. Last year there were 7,974 deaths from liver disease in England and Wales, with a 49 per cent rise in diagnoses of cirrhosis in the last decade.In the past diagnosing cirrhosis meant liver biopsies, but advances in testing mean it can be tested much more easily, experts said.Dr Andrew Fowell, consultant hepatologist at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and specialist committee member, said:“Identifying people who are at risk of liver disease and offering them non-invasive testing to diagnose cirrhosis is key to ensuring they are given the treatment and support they need early enough to prevent serious complications.” The new Nice advice says men drinking more than 50 units of alcohol a week – or 22 pints of regular-strength beer should be offered the scans. Women drinking more than 35 units per week – which means two 175ml glasses of wine a night, will also be targeted by GPs.Watchdogs said earlier diagnosis of liver scarring would ensure patients receive treatment and support to manage their condition. But they said current access to the tests was varied, calling for far more to be done for those at risk of liver disease.Charities welcomed the recommendations which they said would give many people “pause for thought”.Liver disease is now the fifth largest cause of death in England and Wales, with almost 8,000 deaths annually, with cases of cirrhosis rising by almost 50 per cent in a decade.But critics said it went too far, suggesting the health lobby had become “victims of their own propaganda.”Earlier this year, the Government triggered controversy with new advice, which brought down recommended safe limits of alcohol, bringing men into line with women.The guidelines recommend a maximum 14 units a week – seven medium glasses of wine – for both men and women. Andrew Misell at Alcohol Concern, said: “This recommendation is going to give quite a few of us a pause for thought. We tend to think of liver disease as a problem for seriously heavy drinkers, but these figures – five bottles of wine a week for men, and three and a half for women – will match a lot of people’s consumption.

Three pensioners died as they waited for ambulances in East Sussex, an inquest heard. Alan Craze, the Hastings coroner, said the three deaths in the summer of 2017 “all involve issues relating to the prompt dispatch of an ambulance”.Daisy Filby, 90, had to wait for two hours and 25 minutes for an ambulance as she lay face down, unable to move, at her home in Seaford after a fall, Hastings Coroners’ Court heard on Monday.Her daughter Linda Filby was unable to lift her up and kept ringing 999. She said: “On the final occasion I called the ambulance… I asked them to hurry as she was clearly now in distress.”Her mother eventually stopped breathing and was pronounced dead after paramedics arrived, 145 minutes after the first call, the inquest heard.

A post mortem examination put cause of death as postural asphyxia and hypertensive heart disease.Maurice Goodwin, 87, was discharged from hospital on Aug 31 and returned home.His family discovered that his trousers were soaked in “a lot” of blood from his catheter, which was also full of blood.Barbara, his wife, called 999 at 5.52pm but was told an ambulance would not be coming and Mr Goodwin had been referred to the community team. Concerned for her husband as time went on and nobody arrived, she kept calling 999.District nurses arrived at 9.05pm – more than three hours after the first 999 call.“They said it was too late and he had died,” Mrs Goodwin said.A post mortem examination put cause of death as an exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and ischemic heart disease.Anthony Harding’s wife called 999 at 6.32pm after he collapsed on Aug 21.The inquest heard that an ambulance technician was dispatched to Mr Harding’s home at 7.36pm and arrived at 7.45pm.He found Mr Harding lying on his back in a bathroom but noted his airway was clear and he was able to talk.However, he then had a seizure and was sick, and Mr Leahy requested “red crew backup”.Paramedics arrived to assist Mr Leahy at 8.31pm and a critical care paramedic arrived at 10.21pm, but Mr Harding was pronounced dead at 10.34pm, the inquest heard.A post mortem examination put cause of death as a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm.The inquests continue.

THE MAYOR of a small Dutch town, and its local police force, “failed” in their handling of a riot triggered when thousands attended a party after receiving a Facebook invitation meant to be private, an official inquiry has found.Some 4,000 revellers descended onto the northern town of Haren in September after a local girl accidentally posted a public invitation for her 16th birthday party on the social network.The soiree descended into chaos, with uninvited party-goers pelting police officers with rocks, bottles, flower pots and even bicycles, shops looted and chairs set on fire throughout the night.“Right from the start authorities had no grip on the problem, there was no clear strategy to deal with it and what they did was insufficient,” said Job Cohen, who chaired a five-person commission to investigate the so-called “Project X” riots.He told a press conference that Haren’s mayor Rob Bats had not used all the means at his disposal to control the rampaging youths, many of whom had arrived earlier that day carrying alcohol and drugs.“If this was a test for the police, you would have to come to the conclusion that they failed,” he added.29 injured, and 108 arrested, in ‘Project X’By the end of the night of violence, at least 29 people had been injured – including three officers – while 108 were subsequently arrested. The cost of damages ran into the hundreds of thousands of euros.Images of bonfires and blood streaming from the heads of youths after running battles with riot police shocked the Netherlands, better known for its tolerance and non-violent culture.Cohen called for tighter control on alcohol, including raising the legal age from 16 to 18 and banning it at football matches and large events.Officials in Haren had prepared for trouble on September 21 by blocking access to the girl’s street, banning alcohol consumption near her home and having the teenager herself quit the premises.(YouTube: Reikvids)But riot police had to intervene when a couple of hundred drunken youths tried to get into the street.After pelting the police with missiles as they tried to force their way into the street, groups of rioters moved on to the centre of the town where they wrecked cars, fencing, street lamps and signs.Some of the party-goers wore T-shirts bearing the words “Project X Haren”, an allusion to the 2012 US teen film “Project X” – about a suburban birthday party that gets out of control after an invitation goes viral.“Ladies and gentlemen, I had the shock of a lifetime,” Haren’s castigated mayor told the briefing.Clearly I did not know enough about Project X.Previous “Project X” parties have run riot in different parts of the world including Germany, Australia and the United States, where teens once wrecked an unoccupied Texas home, causing damage of up to $100,000.As Amsterdam’s mayor between 2001-10, Cohen has been widely credited for his open-minded and progressive approach to law and order in the capital.- © AFP, 2013
Geohot or George Hotz as he is known in the real world, is no stranger to the hacking community as he is renowned for the work he did on jailbreaking the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and various PS3 hacks.It’s the latter topic that has finally gotten him in trouble after he released his hack for PS3 firmware version 3.55. Despite claiming on his site that he condones piracy and the hack should not be used to disable key features, Sony has finally had enough and issued a lawsuit.AdChoices广告Currently the initial complaint and lawsuit papers can be viewed on his website in pdf format (though the site is currently down in an official capacity until the matter is dropped). However, the basic gist is that George Hotz (Geohot), “Bushing,” Hector Cantero, Sven Peter and “Segher” are being sued for bypassing the technology protection measures that Sony has installed on the console.In some ways I’m not really surprised that they are being sued. Geohot has in the past come close to fanning Sony’s anger with previous exploits (yet in some ways the latter got more applause, as many people thought Sony were in the wrong on this occasion) and this latest jailbreak has finally broken them, especially now that pirate games have already started to surface thanks to the exploit.On the other side of the coin it fans additional flames, mainly as to what jailbreaking actually means to the general public. To many it allows you to do what you want with the device that you have paid top dollar for.Whatever the outcome this will no doubt spark several more arguments over the legitimacy of Geohot’s jailbreak and in the next few months we should have the court’s ruling.Read more at Shoutpedia
We all know Apple carries a lot of weight in the tech world, but, as one Brooklyn-based artist learned, messing with Apple will result in a visit from the feds. Twenty-five-year-old artist Kyle McDonald was awakened by a knock on his door and four Secret Service agents after a little “art exhibit” he did at two New York Apple stores using the stores’ computers.McDonald thought it would be interesting to do an art piece on how our computers see us. We sit in front of computers all day and never think about how we might look from our computer’s perspective. McDonald’s reasoning behind the project was to make us aware of how we use our computers.The artist installed software on about a hundred Apple demo computers in the West 14th Street and Soho stores. The software captured photos of people testing the computers which were then automatically uploaded to a Tumblr called People Staring at Computers. Photos were captured for three days during the month of June. Since Apple wipes all of the computers clean at the end of the day, McDonald returned each day to reinstall the program.The three days of shots culminated in an exhibition of sorts last Sunday at the two stores. While using the machines, customers at the Apple stores saw photos of themselves on the computers. They then saw photos of other people starting at the screen. McDonald said that most people just pressed the escape key and didn’t think twice about it.I could see Apple getting upset about this since it could shy customers away from purchasing a Mac. New customers may think the computer has some sort of strange bug that captures photos without you giving it permission.During the making of his art project, McDonald discovered that Apple monitors the traffic in its stores. With all that network traffic going to his Tumblr from the 100 computers, Apple, of course, looked into it. McDonald noticed he’d gotten a photo from a computer in Cupertino that seemed to be an Apple technician. This was the “uh oh” point for McDonald. The technician was able to trace the traffic back to McDonald and found the program he’d used for the Apple computers. The technician then installed it himself, which sent the photo to McDonald.After that episode the Secret Service came along. The four agents took away his two computers, his iPod and two flash drives on Thursday morning and was told that Apple would contact him separately. He told Mashable that he hopes Apple lets him into the store to buy a new computer.McDonald said he got permission from Apple’s security guards to take photos in the store and asked customers if he could shoot their photos. However, he got permission to do so with a camera and not on a computer without them knowing. Unlike with most of his electronic art projects, McDonald didn’t put the code for the program online because there are some obvious malicious things one could do with it if entered into the wrong hands.It will be interesting to see what kind of legal trouble McDonald gets into from this. He is also more than willing to take anyone’s photo down from the collection if they want to be removed.Read more at People Staring at Computers, via Mashable
Everton Football Club are hoping to lodge a planning application next summer for their proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.The Toffees launched a public consultation phase on Wednesday, as support from the public will be essential to the application.It is believed that the new stadium will be ready for the start of the 2022-23 campaign but the club say they will work at a pace that ensures they can deliver the stadium in earnest.Everton CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale said, according to Sky Sports:“This consultation marks a very significant moment as we progress with this project. We would like as many people as possible – and not just football fans – to take part and let us know their views.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

We are preparing plans to redevelop the existing stadium site to create facilities which will benefit the whole community, creating jobs and improving lives.”“Everton is committed to delivering an authentic football stadium which responds to Liverpool’s World Heritage Site designation. The plans we are developing will respect the historic features of the site and complement its surroundings.”Stadium Development Director Colin Chong added: “Our proposals are about to enter a new and very important stage as we begin this formal public consultation period. We and our advisers are stepping up our dialogue with a range of stakeholders as we progress our designs.”“We know everyone is very keen to see images of what the stadium might look like and we look forward to sharing them next year.”
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp reckons that winning the Premier League Manager of the Month award was the ‘icing on the cake’ of a successful festive campaign.Klopp received the award on Friday after his side wrapped up seven wins in the EPL throughout last month.The Reds scored 22 times and conceded just three during those games, with that impressive record leading Klopp to describe December as ‘special’.“It’s nice, the icing on the cake,” he told LFC.TV, upon being presented with the prize.“It was a very successful but difficult month. Each game felt like the most important one of the season. It was unbelievable. The intensity was massive but that’s what made it a special month.”Double delight for Liverpool!

I know a few things about football but my best skill is to bring really good people together,” he continued.“I lead that group, that’s true, and I have to make final decisions but I can only make good decisions if the information I get is brilliant.“With the group I have here, if you can mix up the potential of the group with the best attitude you can get and you get quality.

The number of Alaskans behind bars continues to consistently expand. But that growth isn’t across the board.According to a new Fact Sheet from the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center, data from 2005-2014 show the overall number of Alaskans in Department of Corrections facilities has grown by 20.1 percent.But the biggest increases are among women: up 55 percent from 2005.Nation-wide, the number of women in detention is rising, with no consensus among criminologists about what’s driving the trend.In Alaska, there’s also a huge jump in what’s called the “pretrial” population. That includes people awaiting trial, arrested for minor violations, or lacking the means to meet bail requirements. But it’s a distinct group from those who have been convicted of a crime and sentenced. The number of pre-trial Alaskans in DOC facilities has risen by 91.6% almost double what it was a decade ago.Alaska is one of the few states in the country with one department managing both pretrial and post-conviction inmates, giving the DOC oversight over a complex population ranging from repeat violent offenders to parking-ticket violators.Correction: This article has been corrected to more accurately reflect changes in the rate of growth versus overall growth, as well as removed the mistaken claim that 9.3 percent of Alaskans have spent time in a DOC facility.
Joe Alwyn and Taylor SwiftTwitterTaylor Swift has released her seventh album, Lover, and it seems like a beautiful tribute to boyfriend Joe Alwyn. The songstress, who has packed about 18 songs in her seventh album, has penned down some beautiful songs. As she shared news of the same on her Instagram, Swift wrote, “This album is very much a celebration of love, in all its complexity, cosiness, and chaos. It’s the first album of mine that I’ve ever owned, and I couldn’t be more proud. I’m so excited that Lover is out NOW.”If you hear the lyrics of all the songs that have been written by Swift, you can tell almost instantly how they all hint at her whirlwind romance with Mary Queen of Scots actor, Joe Alwyn. The couple has been dating for about three years now but irrespective of the world being aware of their relationship status, they haven’t commented on their own. However, perhaps the album would do the deed. There are several songs with titles that literally point at Alwyn and his effect on Swift. The sixth track of the album, ‘I Think He Knows’, is an adorable number where speaks of the fact that her beau knows that she has fallen for him. Taylor SwiftInstagramLines like “He got that boyish look that I like in a man,” and words like “lyrical smile” and “indigo eyes,” are a clear giveaway that the song is about Alwyn, who does have blue eyes and boyish charm. Another song from the album, Paper Rings, is also a very romantic number that confirms Taylor’s sentiments towards Alwyn. It clearly mentions that if he does plan to pop the question, she won’t hesitate! “I like shiny things / But I’d marry you with paper rings,” croons Swift in the song. In the song Cornelia Street, Swift actually sings about the personal concerns that the couple faced as they weathered insecurities and triumphed.”I thought you were leading me on / I packed my bags, left Cornelia Street / Before you even knew I was gone / But then you called, showed your hand / I turned around before I hit the tunnel,” she sings. Of course, there is London Boy, with sample clips of interviews with Swift’s Cats co-stars, Idris Elba and James Corden. In the song, Taylor mentions how “You know I love a London boy.” Another verse from the song states, “And now I love high tea, stories from Uni, and the West End / You can find me in the pub, we are watching rugby with his school friends.”Well, the album and all the songs certainly make one thing very clear, Taylor Swift’s approach towards love and relationships has become very mature and that she is in the best place!
