Donald Trump's aides have “frustration” with the president's decision not to pay his respects to late congressman John Lewis. The civil rights leader passed away last week. His body was lying in state at the US Capitol on Monday and politicians – from presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his wife to the Vice President Mike Pence – visited to pay their respects.
John Oliver said Sunday's Last Week Tonight was going to be about eyelashes, and that was mostly just to set up a TikTok video. Its creator "is right," he said: "A lash-curler is a vital tool in anyone's beauty arsenal, and there's an ethnic group in China being systematically surveilled and imprisoned in an attempt to essentially wipe their culture off the map." Oliver started with the basics: "The people in question are the Uighurs. "If this is the first time you're hearing about an estimated million people who've been held in detention camps — mostly Uighurs but also Kazakhs and other ethnic minorities — you are not alone," Oliver said.

Fourteen members of the same family in Texas tested positive for the coronavirus following a small gathering in June hosted by a man who says he believed the coronavirus was a hoax. Tony Green, who lives in Dallas and hosted the event, wrote a column titled, "A harsh lesson in the reality of COVID-19," in which he said he was a former COVID-19 denier. The column was published online July 24 in the "Dallas Voice," which describes itself as "a media source for LGBT Texas."

Japan's government is pushing ahead with the distribution of its much derided masks even though commercially made masks are now readily available, prompting a renewed outcry on social media. Dubbed the "Abenomask", which means Abe's mask and is a pun on Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's "Abenomics" programme, the washable gauze mask has been criticised as ill fitting with quality issues and as a waste of public money. First introduced amid a mask shortage as the coronavirus spread in Japan, some 130 million have been distributed to households and the government is still working on sending out 80 million of a planned 157 million to facilities such as nursing homes and day care centres.
Ecuador has sounded the alarm after its navy discovered a huge fishing fleet of mostly Chinese-flagged vessels some 200 miles from the Galápagos Islands, the archipelago which inspired Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. About 260 ships are currently in international waters just outside a 188-mile wide exclusive economic zone around the island, but their presence has already raised the prospect of serious damage to the delicate marine ecosystem, said a former environment minister, Yolanda Kakabadse. “This fleet's size and aggressiveness against marine species is a big threat to the balance of species in the Galápagos,” she told the Guardian.
Europe's last dictator, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, on Tuesday said he had COVID-19 but has already recovered. Lukashenko previously dismissed fears over COVID-19 as a "psychosis" and recommended drinking vodka to stay healthy. The Belarusian leader, who has been in power for 25 years, has recently faced mass protests after his opponents were jailed and barred from running in the upcoming presidential election on August 8.
Iran's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard launched missiles Tuesday targeting a mock aircraft carrier in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a drill that included such a barrage of fire the U.S. military temporarily put two regional bases in the Mideast on alert amid tensions between the two countries. The drill — and the American response to it — underlined the lingering threat of military conflict between Iran and the U.S. after a series of escalating incidents last year led to an American drone strike killing a top Iranian general in Baghdad. While the coronavirus pandemic has engulfed both Iran and the U.S. for months, there has been a growing confrontation as America argues to extend a yearslong U.N. weapons embargo on Tehran that is due to expire in October.
While the video showed a shortened version of the exchange, police said the boy was part of a larger group of bicyclists riding through New Jersey that were blocking traffic and causing a safety hazard. Ridgewood police said the incident is under investigation and has been referred to the Internal Affairs Unit due to the use of force and the public response. Ridgewood Police Department chief, Jacqueline Luthcke, said the group of cyclists ignored repeated orders to stop as they approached a section of the central business district that had been closed to traffic for a "Welcome back Ridgewood" event.

A college professor, whose rhetoric had been labeled "vile" and "hateful" by his own university, died by suicide, police said Monday. New Hanover County Sheriff's deputies last week were asked to check on University of North Carolina Wilmington professor Mike Adams, who hadn't been heard from or seen in a few days. "Once they were able to gain access to the home, deputies found the homeowner, Mike Adams, deceased in a bedroom," Lt. Jerry Brewer said in a statement Monday.
The White House now seems to believe masks are necessary to restart the economy. While he was previously reluctant to endorse masks, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow wore one on Monday for a press conference even though it was held outside and he stayed far from reporters. Kudlow said he'd been "emphasizing" masks over the past few weeks, saying America wouldn't "keep the economy open" or "get kids back to school" without following guidelines like wearing masks and social distancing.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp on Tuesday withdrew his emergency request for a court to stop enforcement of Atlanta's requirement that faces masks be worn in all public places, while mediation over the state's legal effort to block the mandate proceeds. Kemp sued Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and the city two weeks ago to stop enforcement of the local mandate, aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus. Mayor Bottoms, a Democrat, has said that she would continue to defy the governor's orders, but hoped that the two sides could find a solution.
But now Richards has decided to leave the platform that made him a star, citing growing concerns about TikTok's Chinese parent company ByteDance and how it manages user data. The Studio City influencer, along with other TikTok creators, announced Tuesday they are moving to a rival app, L.A.-based Triller, and will encourage their millions of fans to join them there. "After seeing the U.S. and other countries' governments' concerns over TikTok — and given my responsibility to protect and lead my followers and other influencers — I followed my instincts as an entrepreneur and made it my mission to find a solution," Richards said.
Researchers recently sent mold that grows at the site of the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown to the International Space Station for study. The mold appears to feed on radiation, so early research suggests it might help protect astronauts from the dangerous radioactivity of space. Astronauts take many risks in space, but exposing themselves to dangerous radiation is one of the biggest.
The Israeli military on Monday said it thwarted an infiltration attempt by Hezbollah militants — setting off one of the heaviest exchanges of fire along the volatile Israel-Lebanon frontier since a 2006 war between the bitter enemies. Neither side reported casualties during a battle that raged for over an hour, and Hezbollah denied involvement. But the Israeli military said it was sure the Iranian-backed militant group had carried out the operation, and Israeli forces in the area remained on heightened alert.

Shared on Sunday via social media, the video shows gusty winds knocking down several sections of high wall as construction workers and other personnel look on. The video was originally posted on Twitter by Yadith Valdez, a multimedia television journalist based in Monterrey, Mexico; Valdez alleged the hurricane was responsible. Fact check: Viral photo shows Obama, Fauci visiting NIH lab in 2014, not a 'Wuhan lab' in 2015 "And so, 'Hanna' knocked down part of the border wall that is being built between the United States and Mexico," said the tweet's caption, translated from Spanish to English.
