Guinness Open Gate Releases New Beers For Second Anniversary
Donald Trump has threatened Portland protesters with "very strong offensive force" as the federal government and residents continue to clash in the liberal city. The president warned he might send the National Guard to stop the "terrorists" in the city. This comes as White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has slammed China for attempting to delay Hong Kong elections, even know that is what Mr Trump suggested yesterday on Twitter for the United States' own presidential election.
Police and cadaver-hunting dogs are on the scene in a backyard in Hanover, Germany, where a secret sealed cellar has just been unearthed in the hunt for missing Briton Madeleine McCann. The cellar was once under a garden shed on property where German pedophile Christian Brueckner, the latest suspect in the missing-child case, once lived. The shed was torn down years ago, but neighbors said Brueckner once spent hours inside.
Two pilots are dead after their airplanes collided while battling a 500-acre wildfire in southeastern Nevada, according to authorities. “We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the two pilots and to all those working with the BLM Nevada Ely District,” said Nevada's Bureau of Land Management State Director Jon Raby. The small airplanes that crashed were used to support firefighters on the ground, delivering up to 800 gallons of fire retardant in areas where larger airtankers can not.
Some call it a floating city, a flotilla of 260 mostly Chinese fishing vessels near the Galapagos archipelago that is stirring diplomatic tension and raising worries about the threat to sharks, manta rays and other vulnerable species in waters around the UNESCO world heritage site. Yet the vast fleet is in international waters, outside a maritime border around the Galapagos and also outside coastal waters off Ecuador, which controls the archipelago. That means the fleet, one of the biggest seen in years off South America's Pacific coast, is likely to fish with minimal monitoring until its holds are full.
Because science indicates crowds exacerbate the spread of coronavirus, Jordan asked Fauci on Friday if the government "should limit the protests." "I'm not in a position to determine what the government should do in a forceful way," Fauci responded. So Jordan kept pressing: "The government is stopping people from going to church," claiming that's something "the five liberals" on the Supreme Court had decided.
However, a series of articles reporting doubts by some in Biden's inner circle — particularly following a meeting between Harris and one of Biden's most trusted confidants, former Sen. Chris Dodd — has put Harris in a precarious position. The crux of the issue goes back to last July when Harris executed a viral critique of Biden in the first debate of the primary, or what Biden's sister and former longtime campaign manager described as "that T-shirt moment." With so many motives at play, this is what you need to know about Harris' standing as a potential running mate, and why she may not get the job.
A Dutch court cast doubt on the independence of Poland's legal system on Friday in a request for a ruling from the top European Union tribunal over the possible extradition of a suspected Polish drug trafficker. Polish rule of law has become an increasing matter of dispute within the EU, as critics say the ruling nationalist government has undue influence over judicial appointments. The International Chamber of Amsterdam's District Court said it did not believe Polish courts were independent of government and it would not extradite the suspect until the EU Court of Justice told it to.
Four students have been arrested in Hong Kong in the first police operation to enforce China's new national security law for the territory. The four were detained for "inciting secession" on social media after the new law began on 1 July, police said. A pro-independence group said those arrested included its former leader, Tony Chung.
Harvard and the Trump task force define the red zone differently, but both base their color-coded risk levels on a key metric: the seven-day average of new daily COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people. The “seven-day average” part is important because it smooths out daily fluctuations due to reporting. The “new daily cases” part is important because it offers a current snapshot of the scale of the outbreak.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a darling of the US left and an increasingly frail octogenarian, is taking center stage ahead of this year's presidential election, with the Supreme Court's balance hanging on her seemingly faltering health. Ginsburg's liver cancer -- and recent repeat trips to the hospital due to bile duct infection -- has Washington's political class on tenterhooks, with her every medical procedure causing major hand-wringing, not to mention a variety of contingency plans. Ginsburg was hospitalized yet again on Wednesday to "revise a bile duct stent," as her doctors assured the public that such things were "common occurrences."
The incident, which drew attention on social media, has sparked a flurry of donations to the inmates' accounts. The Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office said the inmates had pounded on their cell doors when they saw the deputy fall — when he awoke, he thought an inmate needed help and released the cell doors to free them. The three inmates, Terry Loveless, Walter Whitehead, and Mitchell Smalls, then came to his aid and used his phone and radio to call for help.
Sen. Tammy Duckworth may be on Biden's VP shortlist. “So my choice is five hours of homeschooling every day for my daughter and failing her, because I'm not a trained educator, or sending her to a school where she could very likely get this virus or bring it home and get her 2-year-old sister sick or my 79-year-old mom, who lives with us,” Duckworth tells Molly Jong-Fast and Rick Wilson on the latest episode of The New Abnormal. Then Princeton's Sam Wang talks about how national polling works, what it means for Biden, and the out-of-the-way campaigns that could make a huge difference for decades to come.
Chicks and ducklings kept in backyards are the likely source of a nationwide Salmonella outbreak that has sickened nearly 1,000 people and killed one person, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday. Every state except Hawaii and Rhode Island has now reported at least one case, the CDC says. The agency now believes backyard poultry — specifically chicks and ducklings — are to blame for the outbreak, citing interviews with 409 ill people.
Israeli security officials on Thursday announced they have caught a Hamas militant who fled the Gaza Strip and swam into Israeli waters, confirming weeks of rumors that a Hamas figure had “defected” to Israel. Israel's Shin Bet security agency said that Izz el-Din Hussein, 24, fled Gaza on June 28 to escape family problems and unspecified “persecution” by Hamas commanders. The Shin Bet said Hussein joined Hamas' military wing in 2013 and commanded an “air defense” unit that included training with anti-aircraft missiles.
A Chicago woman who became the nation's first COVID-19 patient to undergo a double lung transplant said, "I looked at myself and couldn't recognize my body."
At the southern end of Croatia's Adriatic Coast, far fewer tourists are wandering the marbled streets of Dubrovnik than usual, while the number of visitors to northern beaches is much closer to the normal level for the time of year. Dubrovnik, the country's top tourism destination, has become one of the weakest spots on the Croatian coast this year since it is heavily dependent on visitors arriving by air or on cruise ships and those attending conferences and staying in hotels. "We hoped to reach some 20-25% in turnover compared to last season," said Tiffany Cvjetkovic Rudenjak, a member of the family which owns the downtown Lanii restaurant.
SpaceX made history in May when it launched two people to space in SpaceX's Crew Dragon, the company's first crew since Elon Musk founded the rocket company 18 years ago. NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley have spent two months on the International Space Station and are scheduled to come home on Sunday, August 2. Both men are military test pilots, engineers, and members of the same NASA astronaut class.
The killer of one of Uganda's best known mountain gorillas, Rafiki, has been jailed for 11 years. Felix Byamukama pleaded guilty to illegally entering a protected area and killing a gorilla. Byamukama had said the gorilla attacked him and he killed Rafiki in self defence, according to the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA).
President Donald Trump said Wednesday he wants the next coronavirus relief package to be "very generous" with direct stimulus payments to Americans that are potentially more than $1,200. "It may go higher than that, actually," Trump said in an interview with ABC affiliate KMID in Texas during a trip to the state. When he left the White House earlier in the day, Trump said his priorities for this next relief measure are those payments and an eviction moratorium.
A carjacking suspect who had already been arrested shot three Chicago police officers as they attempted to escort him into custody on Thursday morning, authorities said. The gunman was being taken out of a patrol van and walked into Northwest Side police station at around 9.30am when he opened fire, hitting the officers. It was not immediately clear whether the suspect used his own gun or took a weapon from one of the police officers.
