  • Trump jubilant after Mueller finds no collusion

    Golocal247.com news

    The White House was jubilant Monday after the massive Russian collusion probe cleared President Donald Trump, freeing him to campaign for reelection -- and tell Americans that he was right all along. "It's a great day for America," Trump's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told CNN. Trump has been under the cloud of potentially historic scandal for two years while special prosecutor Robert Mueller delved into allegations that his 2016 election campaign colluded with Russian agents trying to tilt the polls in his favor.

  • 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. More than 40,000 children are living in al-Hol, the largest of three sprawing camps in north eastern Syria that houses former members, children, and prisoners of the Islamic State terrorist group Credit: Sam Tarling /The Telegraph The fate of the children who emerged from Isil's doomed caliphate is a matter of humanitarian urgency and critical to international security. 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

    As of February of this year, Google's Chrome desktop web browser owned a remarkable 65% of the global browser market, according to market research firm NetApplications.

Long story short, Chrome is far and away the king of web browsers right now. Of course, just because Chrome is popular doesn't make it perfect, which is why Google hosts a thriving Chrome Web Store that's packed full of great extensions.Some Chrome extensions are designed to enhance specific websites.

  • Doria Ragland: How the Duchess of Sussex's mother became her rock and best friend

    Golocal247.com news

    The Duchess of Sussex's due date has been a closely-guarded secret, and not even Prince Harry and his wife know whether to prepare for a prince or a princess. But the one thing that is in no doubt is that, when it comes to welcoming Baby Sussex, the Duchess's mother, Doria Ragland, will be with her every step of the way. Here we take a look at Ms Ragland and the close bond she shares with her daughter as she supports her through the highs and lows of life as a new royal. Doria's first grandchild Meghan is determined not to have a nanny and some reports last month even suggested that Doria, 62, had taken classes at Los Angeles-based Cradle Company, in preparation for helping with the newborn. The Duke and Duchess have been busy for the past few months renovating Frogmore Cottage, in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where they will live and raise their child. The nursery will reportedly be gender-neutral, and decorated in shades of grey and white. The renovations also include a guest room, where Ms Ragland can stay. Meghan held a high profile baby shower in New York in February, and is said to be planning on holding a second one in the UK, attended by her mother. How did Meghan's parents meet? Ms Ragland was born in Ohio to an antique dealer father and a mother who was a nurse. The family soon moved to Los Angeles, where she attended the Fairfax High School. She is remembered as bright and friendly – the teenager with the Afro hair who loved listening to Marvin Gaye and dining out at a local Mexican taco joint with friends. After school she worked as a make-up artist, which is how she met her husband, Thomas, who was then a lighting director in Hollywood. “I like to think he was drawn to her sweet eyes and her Afro, plus their shared love of antiques,” Meghan has said of what attracted her father to her mother. The pair married in 1979 and Meghan was born two years later. The family moved into a house in The Valley, LA, to a neighbourhood that Meghan has described as “leafy and affordable”. But it was far from diverse - to the point that Meghan once remarked: “And there was my mom, caramel in complexion with her light-skinned baby in tow, being asked where my mother was since they assumed she was the nanny.” Meghan Markle's family tree When did Meghan's parents divorce? The marriage collapsed when their daughter was just six and after the divorce, Ms Ragland took a job as an air stewardess, meaning their daughter was frequently cared for by her father. To instill a sense of pride in her mixed heritage, he bought two sets of dolls, one with a white family and one with a black family. He took the black mother doll, the white father doll and a child doll in each colour, which he then wrapped and put under the Christmas tree. While Meghan was educated at private schools – beginning at Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse before attending Immaculate Heart High School, an all-girl Catholic private school in Los Angeles – Ms Ragland was always careful to nurture a sense gratitude in her only child. The mother took her daughter to visit disadvantaged children in Rwanda, see the slums of Jamaica and experience poverty in Mexico when she was just 10. “My mother raised me to be a global citizen, with eyes open to sometimes harsh realities,” Meghan wrote on her now closed blog The Tig. Doria Ragland is escorted down the steps of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, after the wedding of her daughter Meghan to Prince Harry Credit: Reuters Doria's career Ms Ragland later returned to university to obtain a Master’s degree in social work, following on from her BA in psychology; she was described by her daughter as specialising in elder care. Her most recent job was at Didi Hirsch mental health services in the Los Angeles neighbourhood of Culver City – an organisation whose mission statement reads: “Didi Hirsch transforms lives by providing quality mental health and substance abuse services in communities where stigma or poverty limit access.” “She works specifically with the geriatric community,” Meghan has said, describing her mother as “a free-spirited clinical therapist,” who also teaches yoga. Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, watch the closing ceremony for the Invictus Games in Toronto Credit:  REUTERS She is now believed to be seeing private patients as a freelance therapist, from the Crenshaw bungalow which she inherited from her father in 2011. She is also continuing to teach yoga. Doria and Meghan's close bond As the gulf widens between the lifestyles they lead and the circles they mix in, Ms Ragland and her daughter remain extremely close - to prove the point she once drove a car with the number plate MEGNME. Her mother filed for bankruptcy in 2002, but has never spoken publicly about her daughter. And while many speculated a seven hour meeting with Oprah, before the Royal wedding, was to seal a deal to open up about the racist abuse her daughter suffered, those who know the family say she would never do anything without Meghan’s blessing or that would jeopardise the relationship that they have. In a 2014 Tig post called Love Letter, Meghan captured her mother’s personality by describing her in this way: “Dreadlocks. Nose ring. Yoga instructor. Social worker. Free spirit. Lover of potato chips & lemon tarts. Royal baby 2019 | Meghan and Harry are expecting their first child “If the DJ cues Al Green’s soul classic ‘Call Me,’ just forget it, she will swivel her hips into the sweetest little dance you’ve ever seen, swaying her head and snapping her fingers to the beat like she’s been dancing since the womb. And you will smile. You won’t be able to help it. You will look at her and you will feel joy.” It was just one of many times she wrote about their bond. “We can just have so much fun together, and yet, I’ll still find so much solace in her support,” Meghan said of her mother in 2017. “That duality coexists the same way it would in a best friend.” This article was first published in May 2019 and has been updated.

  • 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.”
