    Golocal247.com news

    ADDIS ABABA/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Boeing Co will brief more than 200 global airline pilots, technical experts and regulators this week on software and training updates for its 737 MAX aircraft, as Ethiopian Airlines expressed confidence in the planemaker despite a recent crash. Africa's biggest carrier will work with Boeing and other airlines to make air travel safer, its chief executive, Tewolde Gebremariam, said, after regulators this month grounded the worldwide fleet of the aircraft following the crash that killed 157 people. "Despite the tragedy, Boeing and Ethiopian Airlines will continue to be linked well into the future," Tewolde said in a statement on Monday.

  • Children of Isil's caliphate left to toil in squalid refugee camps

    Golocal247.com news

    Eight-year-old Hamed cast a critical eye at the at tent peg, raised a hammer above his head and began thwacking it into the hard, stony ground. It is heavy work, and he would rather be in school. But he has little choice. “I get about 2,000 lira for putting up one tent,” he said, using the popular term here for Syrian pounds. “I can do three or four a day, so that is 8,000.” That, he said, is just about enough to feed himself, his mother, and her newborn baby twice a day. “But we can’t eat all the time,” he said. "My mother explained, we can't spend so much money on food because we need to buy stuff for the baby now." Hamed is one of about 41,000 children in al-Hol, the largest of three sprawling camps in north eastern Syria that houses former members, children, and prisoners of the Islamic State terrorist group.

And yet the lack of provision made by world governments, including Britain's, is striking. The Telegraph has seen dozens of malnourished infants as Isil families left Baghouz, Isil's last bastion, in the past two weeks. At least 108 children have already died en route to or soon after arriving at the camp, mostly from severe acute malnutrition, pneumonia, and dehydration, according to the international Rescue Committee. The vast majority of them were under five years old, and most of those babies younger than one.  Many are also carrying serious injuries from shrapnel. The fate of the children who emerged from Isil's doomed caliphate is a matter of humanitarian urgency Credit: Sam Tarling /The Telegraph The casualties included Jarrah Begum, Shamima Begum’s newborn son, who died of a lung infection last month. Unicef has described the living conditions for those children who reach the camp as "extremely dire." Hamed, who spoke to the Telegraph with the permission of his German mother and on condition of anonymity, said he bitterly misses his old life in Europe. “If there was a school, I’d go to it,” he said, as he took a pause in his tent work to speak to the Telegraph. "But there isn't one here." “When I was in Germany I was learning, then in Doula I learnt nothing,” he said, using the Arabic word for “State” – the term many Isil families use for the group. “They just teach like the Quran... and they teach you that you have to fight. But I said: ‘I don’t want to fight’. I don’t like to fight. I just want to be a normal one, I just want to live in a house and make my job. I don’t want to fight, I don’t want to be a warrior.” Unicef has described the living conditions for those children who reach the camp as 'extremely dire'   Credit: Sam Tarling /The Telegraph He said he had left Germany when he was five years old, and only emerged from the Islamic State two months ago. The camp, he said, is a miserable and filthy place. “Kids poop everywhere,” he said. “You have to watch where you walk. You can’t just sit anywhere, like you can in Germany.” It is not surprising. Adults in the section of the camp where Hamed lives told the Telegraph many of the young children have chronic diarrhoea.   “Play”, if there is such a thing, involves picking on one another or chucking rocks at moving cars.   “They call me a dog and things. They think it is a joke,” said Hamed, when asked about his friends. “My mother doesn't like me to be like the other children. She says maybe there is a little baby there, like three years old, and maybe you’ll hit him. Even though I don’t like to throw rocks,” he said. “It’s not a game. They come, they throw, the glass breaks,” he said. “In Germany it is not like this, you’re not hitting on cars. If you want to play you go to your friends, you have friends, they don’t call you anything, you play a bit.” The larger and more loosely regulated section of the camp reserved for Syrian and Iraqi citizens has a market which is run by Kurdish authorities in al-Hol Credit: Sam Tarling/The Telegraph Most children have little time for that though. Adults here told the Telegraph that almost every child from about the age of eight upwards is a low-paid labourer in the camp’s grey economy. “They’re already entrepreneurs. I think they wake up and the first thing they think is: who am I going to hit up for money today?” said Lorna Henri, a 54-year-old woman from the Seychelles who has become the de-facto guardian of two unaccompanied children in the camp. "I try to give them what I can." Ms Henri said boys generally sent by their mothers to run errands in the camp market, which children can access more easily than adults, and put up tents. Girls clean or offer to cook. The market, in the larger and more loosely regulated section of the camp for Syrian and Iraqi citizens, is crowded with small boys hauling hand carts for 200 Syrian pounds per errand.

And across the Middle East, children are generally expected to pull their own weight at an earlier age than in the West. But the prospects for these children are bleak in more than one way. Radical Isil supporters continue to exert influence inside al-Hol, including by harassing women who want to remove their veils.  There have been reports of punishment tent-burnings by an underground “religious police”, and several women from different countries who the Telegraph spoke to complained about being labelled “infidels” by their fellow inmates. Without intervention, there is a good chance the children here will be brought up in the same poisonous ideology that turned many of their fathers into terrorists. Without intervention, there is a chance the camp's children here will be brought up in the same poisonous ideology that turned many of their fathers into terrorists The United Nations has expressed “alarm” at the situation. Last week  Henrietta Fore, the executive director of UNICEF, urged member states “to take responsibility for children who are their citizens or born to their nationals, and to take measures to prevent children from becoming stateless.” Some governments have heeded the call. Last week, the French government said it had evacuated several children. But Kurdish officials have told the Telegraph that Britain has refused to take back British Isil members or their children in the camps on the grounds that it has full confidence in the legal and administrative system of Rojava, the unrecognised Kurdish proto-state in northern Syria. Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary, last week claimed that it would have been “too risky” to send British officials to save Jarrah Begum, although he remained a British citizen after his mother was stripped of her own citizenship. However, the al-Hol camp is run by the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led Western-backed armed group that Britain is allied to. Journalists, including from the Telegraph, and aid workers visit the camp on a regular basis, safely and without incident. Radical Isil supporters continue to exert influence inside al-Hol, including by harassing women who want to remove their veils Credit: Sam Tarling/The Telegraph Nor is it true, as Mr Hunt claimed, that journalists are afforded special protection unavailable to UK officials in Syria or in the camps. In al-Hol, the foreign women constantly exchange rumours about which governments might take Isil members back. For their children, who committed no crime, the only thing on the horizon is more arduous work. "I'd like to...sell stuff. Or you know, build houses," shrugged Hamed, when asked what he would like to do when he grows up. Those are the only careers on offer in al-Hol camp. He picked up his hammer, and went back to hitting the tent peg. His blows made little impact on the stony ground. Protect yourself and your family by learning more about Global Health Security

    Golocal247.com news

    A cruise ship that broke down in rough seas off the Norwegian coast with some 1,300 passengers and crew on board has restarted three of its four engines and will be towed to port, emergency services said Sunday. "Three of the four engines are now working which means the boat can now make way on its own," emergency services spokesman Per Fjeld said. The Viking Sky lost power and started drifting mid-afternoon Saturday about two kilometres (1.2 miles) off More og Romsdal in dangerous waters and high seas, prompting the captain to send out a distress call and trigger a massive airlift operation.

  • iPhone 11 may finally deliver a long overdue feature

    Golocal247.com news

    In any given year, it's not uncommon to see a number of conflicting reports concerning upcoming iPhone features. This, of course, isn't terribly surprising given that Apple early on in the development cycle will often test various prototype designs with different features. Indeed, this is the reason why, in the build-up to the iPhone X unveiling in 2017, we saw some reports claiming Apple was going to release a device with Touch ID built into the display itself.With that said, one of the more interesting iPhone 11 rumors we've seen pop up over the past few months centers on Apple potentially ditching the tried and true Lightning port for USB-C. More recently, though, credible reports have indicated that while that may happen in the near future, Apple with the iPhone 11 will stick with the Lightning connector.Echoing this sentiment, a new report from Macotakara claims that the iPhone 11 will feature a Lightning connector but will ship with a USB-C to Lightning cable. Far more intriguing, though, is that the power adapter will support 18W fast charging which should provide a noticeable upgrade from the 5W charger that currently ships with Apple's iPhone models. This capability has been long overdue and it's nice to see Apple finally, at long last, offering up fast-charging functionality right out of the box.The report further adds that Apple's iPhone 11 models will be able to charge certain accessories like the Apple Watch."Just as you can wirelessly charge Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds, you may be able to charge Apple Watch and AirPods with Charging Case," the report reads.Notably, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that bilateral wireless charging would be an iPhone 11 feature in a report provided to investors just last month.As for other iPhone 11 rumors worth mentioning, there's a good chance Apple's flagship iPhone 11 model will incorporate an advanced triple lens camera scheme. Meanwhile, the entry-level iPhone 11 will reportedly boast a dual lens camera.Further, we can expect to see improved Face ID performance and reliability, improved navigation capabilities, and a bigger battery which will hopefully deliver improved battery life.

Ardern said on Sunday that a national remembrance service would be held on March 29 to honor the victims, most of whom were migrants or refugees.

  • Donald Trump declares 'complete exoneration' as Robert Mueller finds no collusion with Russia

    Golocal247.com news

    Donald Trump and his aides did not collude with Russia in the 2016 election campaign, special counsel Robert Mueller concluded in his report, according to a summary from the US attorney general.  Mr Mueller also did not find that Mr Trump obstructed justice in his alleged attempts to thwart the investigation, instead choosing not to reach a conclusion and simply presenting the evidence.  The US attorney general and his deputy - two Trump appointees - then decided there was not enough proof to charge the US president with obstruction of justice.  Mr Mueller also decided to recommend no further indictments and has no sealed indictments waiting to be made public, meaning he will not bring any more charges now his probe is complete. The findings amount to a major victory for Mr Trump after 22 months of Mr Mueller’s investigation and triggered celebration from the White House and leading Republicans.  No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2019 In his first reaction Mr Trump said: "It's complete exoneration. No collusion, no obstruction." The president said it was "a shame" that the country and his presidency had to go through the investigation and called it an "illegal take down that failed".  Mr Trump also appeared to call for an investigation into the Mueller probe itself and how it began.  Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said: “The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States.” Robert Mueller spent 22 months investigation allegations of collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia Credit:  Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images North America Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator close to Mr Trump, tweeted: “Good day for the rule of law. Great day for President Trump and his team.  “No collusion and no obstruction. The cloud hanging over President Trump has been removed by this report.” However Democrats are demanding that Mr Mueller’s full confidential report be published and that all the underlying documents be handed to Congress so they can be reviewed. The topline findings from Mr Mueller’s report were contained in a four-page summary written by William Barr, the US attorney general.  The summary was submitted to senior congressmen and released to the public on Sunday afternoon, giving the first insight into what Mr Mueller had concluded.  Democrats have demanded that William Barr, the US attorney general, release the report in full Credit: Alex Wroblewski/Bloomberg In the summary, Mr Mueller is quoted saying: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities." Elsewhere Mr Mueller is quoted saying: "The evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference". That finding was effectively a victory for the US president, who has been saying constantly during the two years since he entered the White House that there had been “no collusion”.  As well as clearing Mr Trump and his campaign of conspiring with the Kremlin, Mr Mueller’s report also dealt with the allegations that the US president had obstructed justice by hampering the investigation.  Mr Barr's four-page summary of the Mueller report Credit: Reuters Mr Mueller did not reach a decision on whether Mr Trump had obstructed justice - meaning it was not a total victory for the president - instead deciding not to come to a conclusion. Mr Barr’s summary cites Mr Mueller referencing “difficult issues” of law and fact - a likely nod to Department of Justice guidelines that say a sitting president cannot be indicted.  The summary of the report quotes Mr Mueller saying of obstruction of justice: “While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him". Given Mr Mueller decided not to make a decision on obstruction of justice but instead just hand over evidence, the Justice Department's leaders was left to made a determination. Mr Barr and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, decided there was not enough evidence to conclude that Mr Trump had acted with “corrupt intent”, and therefore decided he had not obstructed justice.  The summary did make passing reference to evidence of potential obstruction of justice by Mr Trump that has not yet featured in public reporting and which Mr Mueller looked at, but gave no more details. Congratulations ⁦@POTUS⁩ ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ Today you won the 2016 election all over again. And got a gift for the 2020 election. They’ll never get you because they’ll never “get” you. MuellerReportNoCollusionNoObstructionWent2MichiganNotMoscowpic.twitter.com/gFqLLLb1fS— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) March 24, 2019 The findings left the president and his allies delighted.  Mr Trump said: “It was a complete and total exoneration.  It's a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it's a shame that your president has had to go through this.” The president also hinted that he wants somebody - possibly Republicans in Congress - to investigate the Mueller probe itself, which he believes should never have been created.  “This was an illegal take down that failed.  And hopefully, somebody is going to be looking at the other side,” Mr Trump said.  Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to Mr Trump, said in a public message to the president: “Today you won the 2016 election all over again. And got a gift for the 2020 election.” Democrats found themselves in a politically uncomfortable position, being asked during TV interviews whether they agreed there was no collusion and whether they trusted Mr Mueller - a man whose integrity they had repeatedly trumpeted in public.  Nancy Pelosi, left, and Chuck Schumer - the most senior Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate Credit: Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the two most senior Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate respectively, demanded the full report be published.  “Attorney general Barr’s letter raises as many questions as it answers,” the pair said in a joint statement.  “The fact that special counsel Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay.   “Given Mr Barr’s public record of bias against the special counsel’s inquiry, he is not a neutral observer and is not in a position to make objective determinations about the report.” Mr Barr said in his summary letter that he planned to release parts of Mr Mueller’s report, but it remains to be seen how much will be made public.  Sign up for your essential, twice-daily briefing from The Telegraph with our free Front Page newsletter.

  • Pete Buttigieg: 2020 Democratic candidate surges to third place in new poll

    Golocal247.com news

    Presidential candidate behind Joe Biden and Bernie SandersPete Buttigieg for president? Long-shot stands out in crowded field South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg won the backing of 11% of likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters. Photograph: Richard Shiro/AP Pete Buttigieg has surged to third place in a new poll of Democratic presidential candidates, ahead of Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Beto’Rourke. The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, won the backing of 11% of likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters in an Emerson poll released on Sunday. Joe Biden had 25% support, with Bernie Sanders in second place with 24%. But the performance of Buttigieg, who has impressed in a series of TV appearances, is likely to serve as a warning to his better-known rivals. Buttigieg had 0% support in Emerson’s January poll, which was conducted just after he formed an exploratory committee. He has not yet formally declared he is running to take on Donald Trump next year but he has been widely praised for his performance in a CNN town hall and in high-profile interviews. He has met the 65,000-donor threshold that qualifies him to take part in the Democratic debates. Harris, a senator from California, had 10% support in the Emerson poll – which had a margin error of +/- 6.2% – while Warren of Massachusetts was in fourth place with 9%. Beto O’Rourke, the former congressman from Texas who has captured the attention of the public and the media with a combination of relentless charm and non-committal policy positions, was backed by 5% of likely voters. Now this'll get people talking...new Emerson poll of Iowa:• Biden - 25%• Sanders - 24%• Buttigieg - 11%• Harris - 10%• Warren - 9%...https://t.co/o4WHsyetvl— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) March 24, 2019 Buttigieg supports the Green New Deal proposal, a series of climate change reforms backed by progressive Democrats, and has said he is in favor of single-payer healthcare, an issue fast becoming a litmus test for Democratic candidates. Were he elected, Buttigieg would be the first openly gay president. In South Carolina on Saturday, he told voters his marriage existed “by the grace of a single vote on the US supreme court”, and said it had brought him closer to God.

  • Prince Charles pays respects to revolutionary hero in landmark visit to Cuba

    Golocal247.com news

    Prince Charles paid his respects to one of Cuba’s revolutionary heroes after becoming the first royal to visit Cuba in 60 years with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.  Within an hour of touching down in Havana on Sunday night, the royal couple’s first official engagement was to lay a wreath at the monument to José Martí, Cuba’s national figurehead who became a symbol of the country’s bid for independence against Spain in the nineteenth century. They landed in a British government RAF Voyager after spending the morning in Barbados, where they attended a service at St Michael’s Cathedral in Bridgetown. After being greeted at Havana’s International Airport - also named after José Martí - by the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Rogelio Sierra Diaz, Charles and Camilla were taken to the eponymous memorial. Although he died in battle against the Spanish, leading a reckless cavalry charge at the battle of Dos Ríos in 1895, Martí was a poet and essayist as well as revolutionary thinker and political theorist.  Prince Charles attends a wreath-laying ceremony at the Jose Marti monument in Havana Credit: AFP At 109 metres, his memorial - a star-shaped tower made of Cuban marble - is said to be the largest monument in the world to a writer. The prince and duchess stood at the base of the memorial flanked by a guard of honour while a military band played the two national anthems: first Cuba’s - words by José Martí, naturally - and then Britain’s. As the couple stood there they were overlooked by the images of two heroes of the Cuban revolution behind them. One huge wire sculpture on the side of a government building depicted Che Guevara, another the revolutionary commander Camilo Cienfuegos. Prince Charles attends a wreath-laying ceremony at the Jose Marti monument in Havana Credit: Reuters The display of pink-tinged roses was brought up to Charles on an easel borne by two goose-stepping soldiers, who then placed it for him at the foot of the memorial. In Cuba, it seems, visiting dignitaries do not get to lay their own wreaths, but instead simply untie the ribbon around them. The couple were then given a tour of the museum dedicated to Martí inside the monument. Curator Eva Maria Diaz told him about the writer’s life, and the history of Havana, which prompted Charles to point out that Britain had once occupied the city during the eighteenth century - “briefly”. As they left he told her: “I’ve learnt a great deal about José Martí.” Saying that he would like to spend more time in Cuba, he joked: “You might get fed up with us very quickly.” He added: “I am sorry to have dragged you in on a Sunday. I hope it is not inconvenient for you.” She said afterwards: “He knew that Havana was under British power in the eighteenth century. It was a very brief period. “He said that he would like to have more time to continue the visit. He was especially interested inJosé Martí's life and work. I told him that Martí's writings were published in 27 books, including literary, political and journalistic works.”
