    PORTLAND, Ore. — Marcy Landolfo is at her breaking point. This week marked the 15th break-in at Rains PDX within a year and a half. Landolfo said most of those repairs at the Northeast Portland location were paid for out of pocket. Other times, she just left the windows boarded up. "It’s just too much with the losses that are not covered by insurance, the damages, everything. It’s just not sustainable," Landolfo said. KATU asked why Landolfo decided to close now, instead of keeping doors open through the holiday shopping season. ... The owner at Rains tells me after five...
  • In post-Roe America, pilots take the abortion battle to the skies

    From 1,800 feet in the air, the pilot of this tiny, four-seater plane points to a stretch of land marked by a smattering of farms and one arterial road. “That’s the Wisconsin border,” he says. “Doesn’t look like much from up here.” But that sliver of land now marks a barrier between legal and illegal abortion care after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The pilot is part of a growing network of pilots who, through a fledgling Illinois nonprofit, are volunteering time, equipment and expertise to help connect people with abortion care. But there are risks, too, from...

    Now, following the liberation of the southern city of Kherson, the Ukrainians say they have found four Russian torture chambers where abuses were perpetrated against the civilian population on a “horrific” scale. Ukraine’s Office of the Prosecutor General said the Russians had “illegally detained people and brutally tortured them” using a variety of despicable methods, including “a device with which the occupiers tortured civilians with electricity.” The abundance of evidence accumulated by Ukrainian and international investigators illustrates the industrial scale on which Russian President Vladimir Putin and his henchmen are today committing war crimes in the heart of Europe.....

    NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg says Europe supplying weapons to Kiev is draining the continent's resources and putting it in a difficult situation. Since the war began in Ukraine, Western countries such as the US and Britain, as well as European states, have supplied Kiev with billions of dollars worth of weaponry, adding fuel to the fire in the war. This comes after reports from US media said that as Washington and its western allies continue to pump weapons into Kiev, maintenance of the armaments is increasingly becoming a headache. Weapons overused by the Ukrainian military are either being wiped out...

    Populist Press ^ | 27/11/22 | Liza Carlisle
    When Trump raised alarms about TikTok in 2020, he was criticized in the media. CNN actually ran a story declaring that the action set a “dangerous precedent for democracy.” Late-night comics also brutally mocked the 45th president, and Trump was also challenged in court. The concern over TikTok and its China-based owner ByteDance stems from the realities of Beijing’s legal system. China’s national security laws can force foreign and domestic firms operating inside its borders to share their data with the government, raising fears of industrial or personal espionage from apps like TikTok. ByteDance has denied that the Chinese communist...

    Alfonso Borrego is the great-grandson of Geronimo, a prominent leader and medicine man from the Bedonkohe band of the Apache people. Geronimo was known for his fearlessness – he resisted both the Mexican and American militaries when they attempted to remove his people from their tribal lands in the late-1800s. Borrego, 66, has spent years researching what happened to his people and his great-grandfather. While speaking with EL PAÍS, he discusses the various conflicting narratives that have been pushed over the past century. Some say that the Spanish drove the Indigenous to near-extinction in the United States, while others suggest...

    A train from Los Angeles pulled into Cleveland with some $355,000 worth of items missing, according to a federal lawsuit. A Hong Kong company, Orient Overseas Container Line, filed the lawsuit last month in federal court in Cleveland, saying the merchandise was pilfered from a Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway train somewhere in California. The company accused the railroad company of negligence and breach of contract. Cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer reached out to Burlington Northern Santa Fe officials for comment. Los Angeles has recently seen a barrage of theft from trains. Union and Pacific Railways estimated in January that...

    The White House has condemned former US President Donald Trump for meeting at his Florida estate with renowned white supremacist Nick Fuentes and with rapper Kanye West, who was recently embroiled in antisemitic controversy. “Bigotry, hate, and antisemitism have absolutely no place in America - including at Mar-A-Lago. Holocaust denial is repugnant and dangerous, and it must be forcefully condemned,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to CNN. According to media reports, Fuentes and West were seen dining with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate on Tuesday, when West said he had asked the former president to be...

    ... The situation has worsened considerably since the summer when, buoyed by a steady stream of oil and gas revenue, the Russian economy seemed to stabilize. Figures released by the Finance Ministry last week show a key economic indicator—tax revenue from the non-oil and gas sector—fell 20 percent year in October compared with a year earlier, while the Russian state statistics agency Rosstat reported that retail sales fell 10 percent year on year in September, and cargo turnover fell 7 percent.... “The spiral is escalating, and there is no way out of this now.” ...

    Volodymyr Zelensky appeared to criticise the mayor of Kyiv for failing to provide enough emergency shelters for residents during his regular speech to the nation. Following Russian attacks on energy infrastructure, Ukraine has established thousands of so-called “invincibility centres” where people can access heat, water, internet and mobile phone links. More than 4,000 centres have been set up so far in Ukraine. In an evening address, Mr Zelensky indicated that “more work needed to be done” in some areas such as Kyiv, where Vitali Klitschko is the mayor. "Unfortunately, local authorities have not performed well in all cities. In particular,...

    Vladimir Putin is using the Russian security service to gag mothers and wives from speaking on the dire conditions faced by their husbands and sons on the frontline. It is a SIGN OF THE THREAT perceived by the regime to women opposing Putin’s war. These new laws could see the rounding up and arrest of distraught women opposing Putin’s war because their sons and husbands have been slaughtered or face such a fate. SNIP Putin faced a barrage of criticism from women who claim he has ignored them and their complaints at the way their sons and husbands are being...

    The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced it is banning telecommunications and video surveillance equipment from prominent Chinese brands, including Huawei and ZTE, citing an "unacceptable risk to national security".

"Our unanimous decision represents the first time in the FCC's history that we have voted to prohibit the authorization of communications and electronic equipment based on national security considerations," FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr said in a statement on Friday.
