    Paris (AFP) -- United Nations chief Antonio Guterres on Thursday urged world leaders to favour clean energy solutions as they pour money into their economies to save them from a coronavirus-induced meltdown. Governments should exit coal, stop subsidising other fossil fuels, and pressure polluting industries to clean up their act in exchange for bailing them out, the UN Secretary-General told an International Energy Agency conference by video link. "Today I would like to urge all leaders to choose the clean energy route for three vital reasons -- health, science and economics," Guterres said. "Bailout support to sectors such as industry,...

    Our state informed OSCE about military potential being accumulated by Russia against Ukraine Ukrainian and American experts, as well as the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, warned that under the pretext of holding strategic exercises Kavkaz 2020, Russia may resort to a large-scale offensive against Ukraine. The other day, the Russian president signed a decree on conscription from the reserve "for military training" - without specific dates for this training. This only increased the likelihood of an offensive – behind the decree may be the attempt of the Russian leadership to conduct a covert mass mobilization for...

    Does anybody else remember the 2011 Harvard “study” that led to headlines like these all around the country? Fourth of July Celebrators More Likely to Become Republicans (ABC News) Attending a Fourth of July fireworks display or flag waving parade as a child slightly increases the likelihood that that kid will grow up to vote Republican, according to a study a team of Harvard University researchers. Even a single July 4 celebration boosts the chance of turning a kid into a Republican, the study claims. "One Fourth of July without rain before age 18 increases the likelihood of identifying as...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday vowed to defeat the “radical left,” in an Independence Day speech at the White House that condemned recent protests against monuments to historical figures as attempts to destroy the United States. Trump claimed without evidence that 99% of coronavirus cases in the United States were “totally harmless.” In fact, many states marked a record number of new COVID-19 cases. In Texas alone, 7,890 patients were hospitalized after 238 new admissions over the past 24 hours. “There have always been those who seek to lie about the past in order to gain power...

    WASHINGTON - On a day meant for unity and celebration, President Donald Trump vowed to “safeguard our values” from enemies within - leftists, looters, agitators, he said - in a Fourth of July speech packed with all the grievances and combativeness of his political rallies. “We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters, and the people who, in many instances, have absolutely no clue what they are doing,” he said. “We will never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues, erase our history, indoctrinate our children. Even as officials...

    There have always been enemies of liberty, freedom, independence, self-reliance - essentially everything America was founded on and most of us still believe in. But it’s hard to accept that those who have benefited the most from our country’s freedom and way of life are those who would now destroy it. They hate our history, our constitution, our flag, even our national anthem. I once thought that Ronald Reagan’s warning was directed at foreign tyrants: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they...

And by now, it has penetrated all levels of American society.In this new age of information warfare, where a hostile foreign power...

    Donald Trump may drop out of the 2020 presidential race if he believes he has no chance of winning, a Republican Party operative reportedly told Fox News. The claim comes in a report in the president’s favourite news outlet that cites a number of GOP insiders who are concerned about Mr Trump’s re-election prospects amid abysmal polling numbers. Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, currently holds an average lead of nine points over the incumbent, according to a tracker of 2020 polls by RealClearPolitics. Crucially, Mr Trump has lost support from older white voters — typically a bedrock of support for the...

(Oman News Agency via AP, File) The “last decade,” notes James Sinkinson in a perceptive article, has seen a “sea change” in Israel’s ties with “key Arab states.” And that last decade is also the one in which Benjamin Netanyahu (again, after a stint in the 1990s) has been Israel’s prime minister — specifically since March 2009.True, conditions for enhanced Arab-Israeli ties have been propitious — particularly the behavior of regional bully Iran, a...

    “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.” - Steve Jobs Steve Jobs, true life hero of millennials, made this comment as part of his 2005 Stanford Commencement address. He advised the newly minted grads to pay attention to their intuition, pursue their passion, and use both to discover what they were good at. Unfortunately by 2005 college grads were ill-equipped to understand his fairly simple message. They got the part about following their heart – they’d been told that from the time they were in pre-school. What they didn’t get was the...

    A Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to militants in Afghanistan for killing coalition forces — including targeting American troops, according to a report Friday. The revelations, from American intelligence officials — reported by The New York Times — came as the US, Taliban militants and the Afghan government are struggling to cut a peace deal to end the 18-year conflict. The US determined months ago that the Russian unit, which has also been linked to assassination attempts and covert operations in Europe that are intended to destabilize the West, had secretly offered rewards for successful attacks last year,...

    The Associated Press changed its writing style guide Friday to capitalize the “b” in the term Black when referring to people in a racial, ethnic or cultural context, weighing in on a hotly debated issue. The change conveys “an essential and shared sense of history, identity and community among people who identify as Black, including those in the African diaspora and within Africa,” John Daniszewski, AP’s vice president of standards, said in a blog post Friday. “The lowercase black is a color, not a person.” The news organization will also now capitalize Indigenous in reference to original inhabitants of a...

That means the world acting "with necessary force", the Swedish climate activist says in an exclusive interview with BBC News. She doesn't think any "green recovery plan" will solve the crisis alone. And she says the world is now passing a "social tipping point" on climate and issues such as Black Lives Matter. "People are starting to realise that we cannot keep looking away from these things", says Ms Thunberg, "we cannot keep sweeping these injustices under the carpet". She says...
