Democrats hold Senate floor overnight to protest Amy Coney Barrett confirmation - live

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 08:54:10 GMT

Have you liked an #IVoted tweet today?

Oh cool! Like tweets with #IVoted and see what happens!

After Donald Trump reportedly told donors it would be ?€?tough?€? for Republicans to hold the Senate, and said he could not and did not want to help some senators, party chair Ronna McDaniel insisted the Senate would stay in GOP hands, saying: ?€?I don?€?t see these senators distancing themselves from the president.?€?

In fact, as the party faces strong headwinds at the polls, senators including Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Martha McSally of Arizona and John Cornyn of Texas have sought to put daylight between themselves and Trump.

'I was absolutely terrified': Australian witness recounts Qatar strip-search ordeal

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 01:29:29 GMT

Kim Mills was one of nine women taken off a Qatar Airways flight in Doha, and the only one not to be strip-searched as authorities hunted the mother of an abandoned newborn baby

An Australian woman has described the ?€?terrifying?€? experience of being taken off a Qatar Airways flight by authorities who strip-searched passengers as they tried to identify the mother of an infant found in the Doha airport toilets.

Kim Mills was one of nine women taken off a Qatar Airways flight bound for Sydney on 2 October and led through the bowels of the Hamad International airport to what appeared to be a dark carpark or turning circle, where three ambulances were waiting to perform medical examinations to determine if any of the women had recently given birth.

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 04:47:32 GMT

Opposition leader calls for action on Monday as Lukashenko defies demand from 100,000 marchers in Minsk to step down

Belarusian riot police launched another violent crackdown in Minsk on Sunday evening, throwing stun grenades into crowds of peaceful protesters, chasing people through courtyards and making arrests as they attempted to curtail the 11th consecutive Sunday of protest in the country.

At least 100,000 people marched through the centre of the Belarusian capital earlier in the day to give what they called a ?€?people?€?s ultimatum?€? to Alexander Lukashenko: step down, or face a nationwide strike on Monday that could cripple the economy.

Olivia Newton-John: ‘I don't wish cancer on anyone else. But for me, it has been a gift’

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 06:00:15 GMT

The pop star and actor talks about her third diagnosis of cancer, taking cannabis and ayahuasca, having Karen Carpenter as her spirit guide - and why her hit film Grease shouldn?€?t be accused of sexism

Olivia Newton-John likes to sing to herself. Over and over, she will repeat, ?€?I?€?m healthy, I?€?m strong?€? to a random melody she has picked up. ?€?I think it?€?s very important to keep that positive message in your head,?€? she says cheerfully. ?€?You know, if you have a difficult moment, music is always a great healer.?€? It is something that has kept her going during her darkest days dealing with stage four breast cancer, the third time she has been diagnosed with the illness in the past 28 years.

Sitting in the kitchen of her ranch near Santa Barbara, California, the singer radiates optimism. Her blond hair is cropped above her chin, colourful glasses perched on her nose. Now 72, she looks much younger - just as she did in 1978 when, at the age of 29, she played the high school student Sandy Olsson in the hit musical Grease.

What do we know about the SBS?

Sun, 25 Oct 2020 23:11:32 GMT

The Special Boat Service that stormed a tanker off the Isle of Wight is closely aligned to the SAS

The secretive Special Boat Service, which stormed a tanker off the coast of the Isle of Wight on Sunday evening and detained seven stowaways suspected of seizing it, is Britain?€?s elite military unit tasked with tackling terrorist and other localised, violent incidents at sea. Its origins date back to the second world war, and the Ministry of Defence refuses to say how many fighters it comprises or give any detail of its operations.

SBS operatives are trained to seize control of ships, tankers or rigs, typically by fast-roping down from helicopters. A similar operation in December 2018 saw the SBS take control of an Italian tanker that was subject to an attempted hijack by four stowaways near Tilbury in Essex, on the orders of then prime minister Theresa May.

Oil prices, stock markets slide as coronavirus cases rise - business live

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 08:50:32 GMT

Covid-19 concerns and pessimism that a US fiscal stimulus package can be passed before next week?€?s election drag markets lower

On a more positive note... AstraZeneca said this morning that the Covid-19 vaccine it is developing with Oxford University produces an immune response in both elderly and young people, and there were fewer adverse reactions among the elderly.

A spokesman told Reuters:

It is encouraging to see immunogenicity responses were similar between older and younger adults, and that reactogenicity was lower in older adults, where the Covid-19 disease severity is higher.

The UK health secretary, Matt Hancock, has just said that ?€?we?€?re not there yet?€? on a coronavirus vaccine, and that he does not expect hospitals to get it this year.

On my central expectation, I would expect the bulk of the roll-out to be in the first half of next year.

We want to be ready in case everything goes perfectly but it?€?s not my central expectation that we?€?ll be doing that this year but the programme is progressing well, we?€?re not there yet.

‘We do not get a chance at happiness’: the Bangladeshi fishermen caught by debt

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 07:45:16 GMT

Hilsa fishermen must borrow to buy equipment but have to sell their catch at a low price to moneylenders - creating a generational debt trap

Kalam Sheikh?€?s life revolves around the few months when he goes in search of Bangladesh?€?s prized hilsa fish. When he gets a good catch, he can make enough money to live on for the rest of the year. He can pay off some of his debts and even improve his home.

But this fragile annual cycle has been broken this year, with bad catches bookended by months off the water by the coronavirus pandemic and government restrictions to stop overfishing.

Wild hing makes India’s heart sing as favourite spice is home-grown at last

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 07:30:16 GMT

Asafoetida is a mainstay of the country?€?s cuisine, but only now are the first saplings being planted on Indian soil

What?€?s in a name? Plenty, when it comes to asafoetida or ?€?devil?€?s dung?€?. The evil-smelling spice is a stink bomb that unquestionably lives up to its moniker. Inhalation at five paces can make someone with a blocked nose stagger back. It has to be stored away from other spices to prevent it overwhelming them. Just a smidgen can cure indigestion. Yet it is a staple in Indian cuisine, adding a certain subtle aroma, pungency and flavour. For the Jain community, whose religion forbids the use of onion and garlic, ?€?hing?€?, as it is called in India, is a lifesaver for the flavour it adds. Hing is India?€?s answer to Japan?€?s umami.

Yet, until now, no one in India has grown the spice.

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 07:15:16 GMT

Campaigners report job losses and jailing of those airing grievances - and urge global fashion brands to stand up for workers?€? rights

On the morning of 4 May, Zar Zar Tun, a Burmese garment worker, led a strike at a factory in the city of Yangon. Within 24 hours she was an inmate at Myanmar?€?s notorious Insein prison.

EU border force 'complicit' in illegal campaign to stop refugees landing

Sat, 24 Oct 2020 06:00:18 GMT

Evidence including footage of Frontex ship making waves near a migrant dinghy appears to contradict agency?€?s denial of involvement in pushbacks

The EU?€?s border agency has been accused of complicity in illegal and often dangerous pushbacks aimed at preventing asylum seekers crossing the Aegean Sea.

Even as evidence of an aggressive maritime campaign by Greece has emerged, Frontex has denied knowledge of, or involvement in, pushbacks. But new evidence, including video footage showing a Frontex ship manoeuvring dangerously near a crowded dinghy full of people and creating waves that drove them back, appears to contradict the EU agency.

The Green party won in Auckland by reaching beyond its own bubble | Chlöe Swarbrick

Mon, 26 Oct 2020 01:31:35 GMT

A minor party hasn?€?t won a general electorate seat in well over 20 years. The result shows what is possible when convention is scrapped

I was making toast in my tiny apartment kitchen four weeks ahead of election day. Not that I really had track of the days. They had melded into one ever-extending runway as Auckland went through its second Covid-19 lockdown and New Zealand?€?s election date was pushed back a month.

We were a few months into an insurgent campaign for an electorate seat at the centre of the country?€?s largest city. We?€?d built a team of hundreds of people - particularly young people, some so young they couldn?€?t even vote yet - who, despite their claims to the contrary, were all doing a lot more than the least they could do. They were about to make history.

Australia is part of a Black region, it should recognise Kanaky ambition in New Caledonia | Hamish McDonald

Sun, 25 Oct 2020 19:00:02 GMT

Australia?€?s un-nuanced support for French dominion is unhelpful in a region where decolonisation is unfinished business

Kicking the can down the road is a time-honoured solution to deadlocks over statehood and identity: hoping time, consultation and money can end up in agreement.

But in New Caledonia, the French territory of 290,000 people in the Melanesian island chain to Australia?€?s north-east, the road is running out after more than two decades of can-kicking.

Sun, 25 Oct 2020 06:15:00 GMT

The challenger aims to fix the foreign policy upheaval of the Trump years but such an agenda presents many challenges

By any measure, Joe Biden is old in the ways of the world. As Barack Obama?€?s vice-president, he met all the big international actors. As chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee, he helped direct US foreign policy.

After four years of Donald Trump?€?s manic leadership, the Democrat offers a steady, dependable hand on the tiller. Biden?€?s grand aim: a glorious American restoration, at home and abroad.

Protesters were met with a violent crackdown from riot police as explosions and white smoke filled residential areas.
