    The Biden administration will drop pre-departure COVID-19 international air testing requirements effective Sunday (Jun 12) at 12.01am after heavy lobbying from airlines and the travel industry. The Biden administration will announce on Friday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will no longer require pre-departure COVID-19 testing for travellers coming to the United States after it determined based on the science and data that this requirement is no longer necessary. The CDC will do a reassessment of this decision in 90 days, the official said.

    Beijing will "not hesitate to start a war" if Taiwan declares independence, China's defence minister warned his US counterpart on Friday (Jun 10), the latest salvo between the superpowers over the island. The warning came as Wei Fenghe held his first face-to-face meeting with US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Dialogue security summit in Singapore. US-China tensions have been soaring over democratic, self-ruled Taiwan, which lives under constant threat of invasion by China. Beijing views the island as its territory and has vowed to one day seize it, by force if necessary.

    The “F Joe Biden” movement has become a national movement, showing up from college football games to protest marches, making it to concerts and onto live television.It’s even become so popular, it produced its own spin-off chant — Let’s go, Brandon — in part because of the refusal of an NBC reporter to acknowledge that the crowd in the stands were actually shouting “F**k Joe Biden.”When the chant broke out while Kelli Stavast was interviewing the winner of that day’s NASCAR race, Brandon Brown, Stavast claimed they were saying, “Let’s go, Brandon.” A meme was born, perfectly encapsulating not only...

    A potentially dangerous regional war may be developing in Northeast Africa thanks to the Chinese-funded Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). It seems that, wherever people grab onto Chinese money, despair follows.The Nile is the longest river in Africa and may be the longest in the world. (The Amazon competes with it for that title.) While Egypt’s historic prominence means that most people instinctively associate the Nile with that country, the great river actually runs through eleven nations. The White Nile begins in Rwanda or Burundi, flowing north through Tanzania, Uganda, and South Sudan. The Blue Nile begins in Ethiopia, flowing...

    Democracy is in disrepair. Over the past four years, President Donald Trump has mocked its rules and norms, accelerating the decay of democratic institutions in the United States. We are not alone: a global reckoning is underway, with authoritarian leaders capitalizing on broken promises and failed policies. To reverse the trend, President-elect Joe Biden has proposed to convene a Summit for Democracy. His campaign presents the summit as an opportunity to “renew the spirit and shared purpose of the nations of the Free World”. With the US placing itself once again “at the head of the table”, other nations can...

    Flight attendants on Chinese flights were advised to start wearing disposable diapers as a protective measure against COVID-19. CNN Travel reports that the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) announced late in November new guidelines for COVID-19 protocol among airlines traveling to high-risk areas. The guidelines list the usual protective measures such as medical masks and gloves; some items even list goggles and disposable shoe covers. But it was the mention of the disposable diapers that inspired the most chatter. The document states, “It is recommended that cabin crew members wear disposable diapers and avoid using the lavatories barring special...

    The rightful president of Belarus, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, appeared via video last month before the United Nations Human Rights Council. Her country’s August election, she declared, had been “stolen.” Despite objections from a representative of the Belarusian government, who said she had no right to address the body, Ms. Tikhanovskaya implored the United Nations to act. “Standing up for democratic principles and human rights is not interfering in internal affairs,” she insisted, “it is a universal question of human dignity.” No one knows how Donald Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis will affect his presidential campaign, but before falling ill, he repeatedly suggested that...
