  • Football: Chelsea beats Manchester United 1-0 to with the English FA Cup

    Acagastya: review


    {{review}}{{date|May 21, 2018}}{{football}}
    [[London]]ese [[soccer|football]] club [[Chelsea FC|Chelsea]] defeated [[Manchester United]] 1&ndash; 0 at the Wembley stadium on Monday to win the English FA Cup. [[Belgium|Belgian]] winger {{w|Eden Hazard}}, who was brought down by Manchester's {{w|Phil Jones}} in the penalty area, scored the only goal &mdash; a 22nd minute penalty &mdash; to win the match for ''The Blues'' as they won their eight FA Cup trophy, first since 2012.

    United had a greater ball possession &mdash; 67%, more than twice of Chelsea's. Manchester had eighteen shots<!-- pi has said they don't know what it means -- shots: headers, kicks, volleys; aimed to score. shots on target means the shots which went in the direction of the goal post --> managing five on target; while the Londoners had just six shots, three of which on target. Early in the first ten minutes, Hazard attempted to score a left-footed shot in the left corner, assisted by {{w|Tiemoué Bakayoko}}. Soon after 20 minutes on the clock, United defender committed a foul on Hazard in the penalty area and was shown a yellow card. Match official Martin Oliver referred to video assistant referee and awarded Chelsea a penalty kick. Taking a short run, Hazard converted the spot-kick into a goal, sending United's goalkeeper {{w|David De Gea}} in the wrong direction. The first half ended in 1&ndash;0 lead for ''The Blues'', with Phil Jones being the only one to be booked in that half.

    In the 56th minute, United came close to equalise, but Chelsea's goalkeeper {{w|Thibaut Courtois}} denying {{w|Marcus Rashford}} the chance to level up. A couple of minutes later, Manchester United's {{W|Antonio Valencia}} was shown yellow. In the 63rd minute, Alexis Sanchez almost equalised for United, from Jones' assist, but was caught offside. Manchester made a double-substitution in the 73rd minute as Belgian forward {{w|Romelu Lukaku}} came on for Rashford and {{w|Anthony Martial}} replaced injured {{w|Jesse Lingard}}.

    Spanish midfielder Juan Mata replaced Jones in the 87th minute, and Chelsea made their first substitution in the 89th minute when {{w|Álvaro Morata}} came on for {{w|Olivier Giroud}}. Hazard was replaced by {{w|Willian Borges|Willian}} in the injury time, and Chelsea's Belgian goalkeeper Courtois getting booked minutes before the final whistle.

    This was the first domestic cup victory for the Italian manager Antonio Conte, who lost last year's FA Cup against [[Arsenal FC]]. For the last seven years, only Arsenal and Chelsea have lifted the FA Cup trophy. Conte's Chelsea won the Premier League last season but finished fifth this time, missing out the [[UEFA Champions League]] qualification for next season.

    After the victory, Conte said, "I'm very satisfied because today was very difficult [...] To win the FA Cup against a really strong team - a really great team like Manchester United - we must be pleased [...] It wasn't easy, but I'm very happy for our fans, for my players." United's manager and former Chelsea boss [[José Mourinho]] said, "Every defeat hurts, but for me personally the ones that hurt less are when you give everything and you go without any regrets [...] I knew the opponent I was going to play against. I knew they have a compact low block with lots of physicality where they try to close everything." Manchester United finished second in the league this season, nineteen points behind their city rivals [[Manchester City]].

    FA Cup winners Chelsea received 1.8 million British pounds as the prize money.

  • Belgian LGBT refuge shelter announced during annual Brussels Pride

    Acagastya: MT


    {{review}}{{date|May 20, 2018}}{{LGBT}}
    First-ever [[Belgium|Belgian]] refugee shelter "Refuge" for the victims of violence against the {{wikt|lesbian}}, {{wikt|gay}}, {{wikt|bisexual}} and {{wikt|transgender}} ({{w|LGBT}}) community was announced this Friday by the initiators, one day prior to [[Brussels]]' LGBT Pride rally. The refugee shelter is to open in the Belgian capital Brussels in July and Brussels is to grant 50 thousand [[euro]]s as subsidies for the shelter.

    Spokesperson of the "Refuge", Dimitri Verdonck said, {{translated quote|nl|Dutch language|Het Regenbooghuis, dat tientallen verenigingen uit de Brusselse holebiwereld groepeert, wordt minstens één keer per week aangesproken door een jongere die aan zijn lot is overgelaten. Het gaat vooral om mensen die door hun gezin uitgesloten zijn, omdat het gezin niet aanvaardt dat ze verschillend zijn|The Rainbow House [umbrella organisation for the Brussels LGBT community], which brings together dozens of associations from the Brussels gay community, is approached at least once a week by a young person who has been left to their fate. It is mainly about people who are excluded by their families, because the family does not accept that they are different}}.

    Last year, 84 cases of discrimination against the LGBT community were reported to equal-rights organisation {{w|Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism|Unia}}. Per this refuge programme, four victims of {{wikt|homophobic}} violence are to be provided shelter in a flat, whose location is not to be disclosed. A similar refuge programme was launched in [[France]] fifteen years ago in 2003. The programme aims to open ten such shelters by the end of this year.

    Saturday's Brussels Pride, 23rd iteration of the annual pride which gathered around 100 thousand participants. The pride began at 2:30 PM, local time at the Ravenstein street. This year's pride focused on the "Your Local Power" theme for the upcoming municipal elections scheduled for October. A number of politicians including the city Mayor {{w|Philippe Close}}, Johan Van den Driessche, Meyrem Almaci, Pascal Smet, as well as Sven Gatz attended the pride. Former Belgian prime minister {{w|Elio Di Rupo}} was also one of the attendees.

    Regarding this year's theme, the Pride's co-ordinator and spokesperson Elio De Bolle said, {{translated quote|nl|Dutch language|Die boodschap is erg belangrijk omdat het verkiezingen zijn. Het is belangrijk om eens te kijken naar wat er nog verbeterd kan worden binnen het lokale beleid|That message is very important because they are elections. It is important to look at what can be improved within the local policy}}. Around 70 events were organised since May 4. The pride parade ended at around 5 PM. One attack by counter-demonstrators was reported.

    {{translated quote|nl|Dutch langauge|Je merkt dat er naar ervaring en openheid toe nog werk aan de winkel is. Daarom pleit ik er ook voor dat elke gemeente een schepen van Gelijke Kansen zou aanduiden|You notice that there is still work to be done based on experience and openness. That is why I am also calling for every municipality to designate a vessel of equal opportunities}}, State Secretary for the Equal Opportunities and {{w|Christen-Democratisch en Vlaams}} politician Bianca Debaets said.

    In what is being termed as a serious viral outbreak, three members of a Kerala family have succumbed to a rare viral infection known to be transmitted by bats. The [[wikipedia:Henipavirus#Nipah_virus|Nipah virus]] (NiV), first identified in April 1999, is believed to catalyst a host of physical and neurological conditions in human beings as well as animals. The first outbreak in Malaysia resulted in a whopping 103 human deaths and the mandated euthanasia of about a million farm animals, particularly pigs.

  • Swaziland's King Mswati III signs gazette to rename the country to eSwatini

    SVTCobra: /* Sources */ sort


    {{date|May 20, 2018}}{{Swaziland}}
    On Thursday, the King of [[Swaziland]], {{w|Mswati III}}, signed an official {{w|Government Gazette|gazette}} to change the name of the country to {{wikt|eSwatini}}, which means "land of the Swazi" in the {{w|Swazi language}}. Per the gazette, a form of official government publication for important announcements, the absolute monarchy is to be referred to as "eSwatini" in all official documents including Swazi passports.
    [[File:King Mswati III 2014.jpg|left|thumb|120px|Mswati III in 2014. {{Image|Amanda Lucidon / {{w|United States Department of State}}|file=King Mswati III 2014.jpg}}]]
    The Gazette read, "In exercise of the powers conferred on me by section 64 (3) of the Constitution of Swaziland Act No. 1 of 2005, I, Mswati III, King and Ingwenyama of Eswatini makes the declaration that the name of the Kingdom of Swaziland is changed to Kingdom of Eswatini."

    A month ago, on April 19, on the 50th anniversary of the country's independence from {{w|UK|Britain}}, and King Mswati's 50th birthday, the ruler said in a speech that the country's name "was inherited from the British". The monarch has used "eSwatini" on various international stages including the {{w|United Nations}}'s 2017 {{w|United Nations General Assembly|General Assembly}} and an {{w|African Union}} summit.

    In the independence day speech, the king said, "If we are to give true meaning to our independence, time has come to give our country a name of its people. It must be said that this process is long overdue, particularly if you consider how other countries in the region localised their names soon after independence [...] I have the pleasure to present to you, on this historic day, a new name for the kingdom. Our country will now be called Kingdom of Eswatini". The nearby countries of [[Zimbabwe]], [[Malawi]] and [[Botswana]] all changed their names after attaining independence from Britain. Their previous names were {{w|Rhodesia}}, {{w|Nyasaland}} and {{w|Bechuanaland}} respectively.

    Although the gazette was signed this week, it states "the notice shall be deemed to have come into force on April 19". At the April event, the monarch highlighted the similarity between the names of "Swaziland" and "[[Switzerland]]", a [[Europe]]an nation. He said, "Whenever we go abroad, people refer to us as Switzerland".

    The citizens are to be referred to as "Emaswati" (plural) or "Liswati" (singular).

  • Principal, teacher arrested for allegedly whipping two students late for school in Ayetoro, Nigeria

    Acagastya: Is called Pulse Africa in T&C page


    {{date|May 19, 2018}}{{crime and law}}
    {{w|Ogun State|Ogun}} state police said the proprietor, the principal, and a teacher at Meteorite Standard School in {{w|Ayetoro}}, [[Nigeria]] were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly tying two students &mdash; one male and one female &mdash; to crosses and lashing them with a {{w|Crop (implement)|horsewhip}} for being late to school. They are being charged with assault as well as intention to cause grievous bodily harm.
    [[File:Nigeria - Ogun.svg|thumb|left|Location of Ogun State within Nigeria. {{image|[[commons:User:Uwe Dedering|Uwe Dedering]] and [[commons:User:Profoss|Profoss]]}} ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/1.0/deed.en CC BY-SA 1.0])]]
    According to police officer Livinus, who witnessed the lashing, he told the proprietor of the private school, identified as Afolayan Joseph, to untie the students. The proprietors "refused, saying there was nothing anybody could tell him that would make him to release them," Livinus told a local newspaper ''{{w|The Punch}}''. Livinus added that he was beaten when the tried to untie the students. "Before I returned from picking handcuffs from my car, they had grabbed a friend who was with me [...] and beaten him up with a horsewhip", the police officer said.

    Livinus said he entered the school property with the help of neighbours, but the principal denied to follow him. Linivous later called {{w|Itele}} police station's divisional officer for additional police at the scene, who later handled the situation. Calling the act as "barbaric", Ogun Police Public Relations Officer Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the arrest of three. Oyeyemi said the investigation is to be conducted by State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.

    The public relations officer said, "I don't see any offence that a secondary school pupil will commit that will make someone to tie him or her and be flogging them in public." Oyeyemi later added saying, "The act is no longer a corrective measure; it is a barbaric act and it will not be allowed in this 21st century". Nigeria is not one of the countries who have banned {{wikt|corporal punishment}}.

  • Santa Fe, Texas School Shooting

    AZOperator:


    {{review}}{{date|May 20, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}

    Friday morning, in the [[United States]] city of {{w|Santa Fe, Texas|Santa Fe}}, [[Texas]], ten individuals were killed and thirteen injured at {{w|Santa Fe High School (Texas)|Santa Fe High School}} (SFIHS) when a gunman armed with a {{w|shotgun}} and .38-revolver started shooting. Suspicious devices, initially suspected of being {{w|Improvised explosive device|improvised explosive devices}}, were placed in and around the school, but were later determined to be non-functional.

    The prime suspect, junior {{w|Santa Fe High School shooting#Suspect|Dimitrios Pagourtzis}}, allegedly entered SFIHS and began shooting at around 7:30 Friday {{w|Central Time Zone#Central Daylight Time|CDT}} (1230 {{w|Coordinated Universal Time|UTC}}). SFIHS acknowledged Pagourtzis was a current student and participated in the junior varsity {{w|American football|football program}}.

    Texas Governor {{w|Greg Abbott}} confirmed Pagourtzis intended to commit suicide during the shooting but ultimately surrendered to law enforcement. Abbot commented, "he didn't have the courage to commit the suicide." According to students close to Pagourtzis, described him as a soft-spoken and overall friendly individual. The motivation for the shooting as of 20:00 CDT Sunday (0100 UTC) has not been determined.

    Statements, allegedly made during the shooting, intended Pagourtzis sought to spare individuals whom he liked. Two {{w|School Resource Officer}} (SRO) were on duty and immediately engaged the alleged gunman, Pagourtzim, with another officer. One SRO, later identified as Officer John Barnes, was hospitalized for a gunshot to the leg listed in critical, but stable condition.

    Assembling a large local and state officer response happened within 10-20 minutes with the objective of confronting any remaining threats were slowed when reports of unusual packages started. {{w|Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives|Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms}} (ATF) agents were deployed to the location aiding law enforcement with the explosive disposal. The firearms used during the shooting were legally bought and registered by Pagourtzis's father, rendering legal safeguards ineffective.

    SFIHS is located 36 miles (about 58 km) from the {{w|Houston}} Metropolitan Area, which allowed the critically injured individuals quick transportation to local Emergency and Trauma Centers. The school was placed on lockdown as bomb squad and {{w|Special Weapons and Tactics}} (SWAT) officers cleared the building of any remaining threats. All students had their backpacks search and received body searches at a staging area before being moving to a safe zone.

    Friday's shooting marks the largest, in terms of casualties, since the February 14, 2018 {{w|Stoneman Douglas High School shooting|Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School}} (MSD) shooting committed by {{w|Stoneman Douglas High School shooting|Nikolas Cruz|anchor=Suspect}} killing seventeen and injuring fifteen. Cruz is awaiting trial for capital murder charges. SFIHS is smaller then MSD with a headcount of approximately 1,400 students.

    Unlike other school and mass shootings, preliminary reports claim Pagourtzis displayed no overt warning signs of an impending attack and did not have any prior criminal record. However, extensive paper and electronic journals kept by Pagourtzis were seized during a search warrant, showing he had been thinking and planning a shooting without disclosing the plans. Currently, Pagourtizis has been cooperating with law enforcement and currently is being kept separated from the general jail population for his safety.

    The Pagourtizis family released the following statement: "We are as shocked and confused as anyone else by these events that occurred. We are gratified by the public comments made by other Santa Fe High School students that show Dimitri as we know him: a smart, quiet, sweet boy. While we remain mostly in the dark about the specifics of yesterday’s tragedy, what we have learned from media reports seems incompatible with the boy we love."

    US President [[Donald Trump]] has ordered all flags at half mast in the wake of the tragedy. On {{w|Twitter}}, Trump stated, "We grieve for the terrible loss of life, and send our support and love to everyone affected by this horrible attack in Texas. To the students, families, teachers and personnel at Santa Fe High School – we are with you in this tragic hour, and we will be with you forever..."

    The names of the victims are being released upon positive identification and notification to next of kin. As of 15:16 CDT Saturday (2016 UTC) the officially released fatalities are: Sabika Sheikh, Ann Perkins, Angelique Ramirez, Shana Fisher, Kim Vaughan, Chris Stone, Cynthia Tisdale, Christian "Riley" Garcia, Jared Conard Black, and Kyle McLeod. The Pakistani Embassy confirmed Sabika Sheikh was a Pakistani participating in a {{w|US Department of State}} funded Youth Exchange and Study program.

    Pagourtzis had an initial arraignment Friday afternoon connected by closed-circuit video with a magistrate judge. He is being held on adult capital murder charges, but was not required to enter a guilty or not guilty plea. Prosecutors have not announced their intentions for seeking the death penalty. Texas has more flexible requirements for capital punishment than most states, with the death penalty regularly exercised. Debates about gun laws and school safety have started with comparisons being drawn to the April 20, 1999 {{w|Columbine High School massacre}}.

  • Israeli health minister Litzman calls for not violating Jewish rest day shabbat for 2019 Eurovision song contest

    Pi zero: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review


    {{DISPLAYTITLE:Israeli health minister Litzman calls for not violating Jewish rest day ''shabbat'' for 2019 Eurovision song contest}}
    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|May 17, 2018}}{{Israel}}
    On Monday, [[Israel]]i deputy health minister {{w|Ya'akov Litzman}} wrote a letter to Culture and Sports Minister {{w|Miri Regev}} demanding preparations of 2019's {{w|Eurovision Song Contest}} and the contest itself should "not harm the holiness" of ''{{wikt|shabbat}}'' — the [[Jewish]] holy rest day, from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday — and working "in every way to prevent the desecration of ''shabbat''". Israel is to host Eurovision Song Contest next year as Israeli singer {{w|Netta Barzilai|Netta}} won this year's contest in [[Lisbon]], [[Portugal]].

    In the letter, he wrote, "In the name of hundreds of thousands of Jewish citizens from all the populations and communities for whom Shabbat observance is close to their hearts, I appeal to you, already at this early stage, before production and all the other details of the event has begun, to be strict [in ensuring] that this matter does not harm the holiness of Shabbat and to work in every way to prevent the desecration of Shabbat, God forbid, as the law and the status quo requires."

    ''Shabbat'' is the rest day when Jews do not perform any actions of work. In a past discussion between Litzman and religious leader {{wikt|Rabbi}} {{w|Yaakov Aryeh Alter}}, Alter said it was wrong to work on Shabbat. Every iteration of final of Eurovision Song Contest was held on Saturday. European Broadcasting Union's chairperson Dr Frank-Dieter Freiling told Jewish newspaper ''Haaretz'' that the religious day of rest "cannot be really put into consideration with regards to viewers all over Europe."

    Last year, Litzman had submitted his resignation in protest after Jewish workers were made to undertake railway work on ''shabbat''. That time, both Israeli welfare minister Haim Katz and Israeli transportation minister Yisrael Katz expressed potential threat to passengers if the railway work was postponed. Last year, in July, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended former German chancellor Helmut Kohl's funeral in {{w|Strasbourg}}, [[France]]. Netanyahu walked from hotel to {{w|European Parliament}}, and he did not deliver a speech or sign a guestbook to avoid actions of work on the rest day, as a "status quo" requirement.

    "There will be no ''sabbath'' desecration", a spokesperson from Regev's office responded.

  • Anne Frank Diary reveals new salacious passages

    SVTCobra: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review


    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|May 15, 2018}}
    {{infobox|History}}
    [[File:The Diary of a Young Girl at the Anne Frank Zentrum.jpg|left|thumb|The Diary of Anne Frank on public exhibit. {{image|Rodrigo Galindez}}]]
    Announce on Tuesday, Anne Frank's diary, recovered two pages of sexual related content concealed by blank brown paper pasted over the text during a routine {{w|Preservation (library and archival science)|preservation}}. Using modern technology, the text included four mildly sexual jokes, thoughts on teaching sex including {{w|Birth control|contraceptives}}, and talked about her first mensural cycles.

    ''{{w|The Diary of a Young Girl|The Diary of Anne Frank}}'', was published by Frank's father {{w|Otto Frank}} after {{w|World War II}} ended for the first time in 1947. His daughter's diary describes the life of a 13-14-year-old {{w|Judaism|Jewish girl}} hiding in {{w|Nazism|Nazi}} occupied {{w|Amsterdam}}. As a literary success, the diary has become one of the most significant artifacts of the {{w|Holocaust}} and World War II. The diary survived the August 4, 1944 {{w|Gestapo}} raid on the Frank's hiding spot because her father's secretary Miep Gies discovered the red patterned journal in the annex returning it to Otto Frank after his concentration camp release. Otto Frank was the only survivor of the Frank family and the others hiding above the annex which is now a museum. After the Gestapo raid, the Franks' were moved to the {{w|Auschwitz Concentration Camps}}. Documentation is sparse, but Frank (15) would later be moved and ultimately die at {{w|Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp}}, sometime during 1945.

    The {{w|Anne Frank House}} is the responsible party preserving the artifact using minimally invasive modern techniques. Employing a high resolution camera with an intense light shining through the page researchers and preservationists captured the concealed pages with enough detail for further analysis. Using advanced computer programs compensating the diary's physical property, composition, age, deterioration, and other text, the team was able to determine the content of the concealed pages without removing the pasted paper damaging the valued artifact.

    Dated September 28, 1942, Frank would state her purpose for the two pages, "I'll use this spoiled page to write down 'dirty' jokes." It is unknown exactly who pasted the brown pages, but Frank may have done it since her writing suggested her father was reading the diary. Otto Frank, may have wanted to redact those pages preserving the innocence of his daughter prior to publication. The origins of the jokes is also unknown, Frank may have overheard adults, interpreted radio broadcasts, or developed them.

    Frank's 'dirty' humor included wartime commentary with the promiscuous joke, "Do you know why the German girls of the armed forces are in the Netherlands? As a mattress for the soldiers."

    {{w|Infidelity}} was addressed with, "A man comes home at night and notices that another man shared the bed with his wife that evening. He searches the whole house, and finally also looks in the bedroom closet. There is a totally naked man, and when that one man asked what the other was doing there, the man in the closet answered: 'You can believe it or not but I am waiting for the tram.' " She also added, "A man had a very ugly wife and he did not want a relationship with her. One evening, he came home and he saw his friend lying in bed with his wife and the man said: 'He does and I have to!!!!' "

    One statement offered new candor on Otto Frank's history and prostitution with, "All men, when they are normal, go with women, on the street such women talk to them and then they go together. In Paris, there are big houses for that. Dad has been there." Her final joke about sexual relationships was, "A man and a woman had a relationship, and after a few months the woman's belly was getting disturbingly big. Then, the man called a doctor who said: 'It's just air, Mrs., just air!!!" The man replied: 'I am not pumping air, am I?' "

    On sex, Frank wrote, "I sometimes imagine that someone might come to me and ask me to inform him about sexual matters ... How would I go about it?" She would describe it as, "rhythmic movements". Her thoughts about sex coincided with an entry about her first menstrual cycles, describing it as, "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married."

    In all, researchers and preservationists recovered 5 crossed out phrases, 4 jokes, and 33 lines of text. The recovery of this information adds a new aspect to Frank's thoughts, history, and personality. The executive director of the Anne Frank House, Ronald Leopold, describes the historical and literary significance stating, "Anne Frank writes about sexuality in a disarming way. Like every adolescent she is curious about this subject. She also writes about it on other, uncovered pages. They bring us even closer to the girl and the writer Anne Frank."

  • Football: Atlético Madrid beats Marseille 3-0 to win third Europa League title

    Acagastya: typo


    {{date|May 19, 2018}}{{football}}
    On Wednesday, [[Spain|Spanish]] [[Madrid|capital]] [[soccer|football]] club [[Atlético Madrid]] defeated [[France|French]] team {{w|Olympique de Marseille}} 3&ndash;0 to win the {{w|UEFA Europa League}} Final at the {{w|Parc Olympique Lyonnais|Stade de Lyon}}, in France. French striker [[Antoine Griezmann]] scored a brace (two goals in one game), one goal in each half, and Atlético's captain {{w|Gabriel Fernández Arenas|Gabi}} netted the third goal a few minutes before the final whistle as Atlético won the UEFA Europa League for the third time. This was Marseille's third defeat in three Europa League or {{w|UEFA Cup}} finals, never netting a single goal in the final.
    [[File:Antoine Griezmann - CdR - RM v ATL (edited) - 1.jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Antoine Griezmann who scored twice and won Man of the Match {{image|[https://www.flickr.com/photos/dsanchez17/ DSanchez17]}} ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/deed.en CC BY 2.0])]]
    Marseille had greater ball possession and better passing accuracy. Marseille were awarded three free-kicks in the first ten minutes of the match. The French side created several chances in the first half but failed to convert any into a goal. Around the 20th minute, Marseille's André Zambo Anguissa lost the ball, as Madrid's captain Gabi assisted Griezmann who opened the scoring with his left foot. A couple of minutes later, a referee made the first booking of the match. Atlético's {{w|Šime Vrsaljko}} received a yellow card for a bad foul. Just after the half-hour mark, Marseille's midfielder {{w|Dimitri Payet}} was injured and replaced by {{w|Maxime Lopez}}. Payet has provided 22 assists in all competitions this season. The first half ended in a 1&ndash;0 lead for the Spanish side. Marseille's {{w|Jordan Amavi}} was the second player to receive a yellow card.

    At the beginning of the second half, Vrsaljko was replaced by {{w|Juanfran}} due to injury. Less than five minutes into the second half, Frenchman Griezman doubled the lead, scoring another left-footed goal, assisted by {{w|Jorge Koke|Koke}}. Koke also assisted Gabi in the 89th minute, who scored his first goal for Atlético since August 2015. 34-year-old Gabi became the oldest player to score a goal in a Europa final. {{w|Fernando Torres}} was substituted for Griezmann in the 90th minute. Marseille committed eighteen fouls in the match, twice as many as their opponents. Madrid's goalkeeper {{w|Jan Oblak}} acheived his seventh clean sheet in this season's European competitions &mdash; UEFA Champions League and Europa League.

    Griezmann was awarded the Man of the Match award. After winning the match, Griezmann said, "I've been working to experience such a moment for many years". Marseille's defender Adil Rami said, "The final step was too far for us but we fought for everything. We lacked experience. Against a team like this you shouldn't try to play football. You need to knock it long and high and win second balls. When you try to play and lose the ball against them, that's when you're in trouble. The opening goal we conceded was the turning point. Up until then we had troubled their defence."

    Previously, Atlético won the Europa League in 2010 and 2012. This was the second Europa league victory for the ''Rojiblancos'' under Diego Simeone's management. Atlético has also reached two UEFA Champions League finals under Simeone's management &mdash; in 2014 and 2016 &mdash; losing both to their city rivals [[Real Madrid]].

  • President Trump Preaches Unity to a Divided Nation

    Green Giant: Abandoned?


    {{abandoned|May 20, 2018|userspace=}}
    {{tasks|news|npov|re-review}}{{notnews}}
    {{date|January 30, 2017}} In his first State of the Union address to Congress, President Donald Trump highlighted the strengths of America and its people while preaching unity to a historically divided Congress. In Trump’s hour-and-twenty-minute long speech, he stayed on script and introduced the country to his upcoming plans, while reminding everyone of all of the campaign pledges and promises he has fulfilled and is currently working on.

    After entrances from Trump’s cabinet, the Supreme Court Justices and both chambers of Congress, Trump entered amid mounting applause from Republican lawmakers. On his way to the Capitol, protesters stood and demonstrated against the divisive president.

    Trump began his State of the Union by addressing the “new tide of optimism sweeping across our land.” The President then mentioned Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was wounded by a bullet earlier last year while playing baseball on the Congressional baseball field.

    The President highlighted the Las Vegas shooting, which, in October, killed 59 and wounded 422, making it the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

    “In the aftermath of that terrible shooting, we came together, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as representatives of the people,” he said. “But it is not enough to come together only in times of tragedy.”

    Trump spent a majority of his speech addressing the campaign promises he kept while announcing his plans to further strengthen the United States. The first achievement that he touched upon was the current state of the economy. Since Trump had taken office, the DOW had spiked almost 44 percent, which represents major growth regarding the economy. Trump also mentioned the fact that unemployment rates, especially among African-Americans and Hispanics, have been the lowest ever recorded in American history.

    Trump also spent a significant amount of time discussing the tax overhaul bill that Congress had passed December 2017. Trump told Congress that this tax bill significantly helps small businesses and middle-class families. Trump also called the old tax system “broken” and said that, “This is the last time you will ever file under the old and broken system.”

    The President did not spare “disastrous” Obamacare from attacks. Since the beginning of his Presidency, Trump has criticized Obamacare and the individual mandate which stated that every person living in America must have healthcare. Trump reminded the country that the tax bill, which was one of this administration’s legislative achievements, repealed the Obamacare individual mandate.

    Again, President Trump strived to unite the country, stating that, “This in fact is our new American moment. Right now has never been a better time to live the American dream …Together we can achieve absolutely anything.” Trump, while commenting on how American businesses are doing better than ever, also said that, “Together, as one American family, we can do anything. We all share one home, one heart and one American flag.”

    In his speech, Trump told Congress that law enforcement officers and veterans are “heroes that deserve our total and unwavering support.” He also attacked the “Take a Knee” movement which he has criticized harshly in the past. He also mentioned the Second Amendment, which gives Americans the “right to bear arms” and said about it that, “We are totally protecting our Second Amendment, and have taken historic actions to protect our religious liberty.”

    Trump told America his plans to reduce prescription drug prices, which, in America, are currently higher than most other countries. He told Congress how this is going to be one of his “greatest priorities” in the upcoming year.

    On trade deals, the President said that, “From now on, we expect trading relationships to be fair and very importantly to be reciprocal.” Trump has been a known critic of what he calls “unfair” trade deals such as North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and said to the country that the “era of economic surrender is totally over.”

    President Trump also asked Congress to pass an infrastructure bill. He told Congress to “permanently fix the infrastructure spending deficit” and to “come together to give us the safe, fast, reliable and modern infrastructure that our economy needs and our people deserve.”

    One of Trump’s biggest campaign promises and administrative goals is to reduce the influx of illegal immigrants. As a way to state his promise of closing the border and building a wall, Trump said that, “For decades, open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities.”

    [https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2018/02/08/president-trumps-claim-that-thousands-and-thousands-of-ms-13-members-are-off-the-streets/ Trump called on Congress to “finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13 and other criminals gangs, to break into our country.” Trump emphasized the point that, although, Americans help more underprivileged people than any other country, “his greatest loyalty, my greatest compassion and my constant concern is for America's children, America's struggling workers and America’s forgotten communities.”]

    Again, Trump announced his upcoming plans. He noted a four-part immigration bill that would help protect Americans and involved building a border wall, extending citizenship for “dreamers” – minors who were taken into this country as children – and ending the visa lottery, an immigration system that randomly picked participants for green cards. Trump also mentioned that his immigration bill was going to end “chain migration” which drew boos from Democrats in the crowd. Trump said that, as President, his, “duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the American Dream.”

    The President then said that these immigration reforms will help support his plans and response to the “terrible crisis of opioid and drug addiction.” Trump, told Congress that “We must get much tougher on drug dealers and pushers if we are going to succeed in stopping this scourge.”

    President Trump said that, in order to fight terrorist regimes and powerful countries that have “conflicting interests” like China and Russia, he was calling upon Congress to pass a bill funding the military. He noted he he wanted to “rebuild and modernize our nuclear arsenal,” so that it would “deter any acts of aggression by any other nation or anyone else.”

    Trump then informed Congress of his plan to “extinguish ISIS from the face of the Earth.” He reported to Congress the fact that America and its allies had “liberated very close to 100 percent of the territory just recently held by these killers in Iraq and Syria and other locations as well.”

    After recounting to Congress how he had moved the capital of Israel to Jerusalem, Trump stated that he wanted Congress to “pass legislation” that would insure that “American foreign assistance dollars go to American interests and friends of America, not enemies of America.”

    The President then told Congress of his challenge in facing the “cruel dictatorship in North Korea.” He said that “North Korea's reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland,” but that America is “waging a campaign of maximum pressure” to “prevent that from ever happening.”

    Trump, while speaking on North Korea, directed the attention to the parents of Otto Warmbier, a college student who, after being sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in North Korea, returned last year severely injured. Warmbier died days after his return. To his teary-eyed parents, Trump said “we pledge to honor Otto’s memory with total American resolve.”

    The President ended his message on North Korea by honoring a North Korean defector, Ji-Seong Ho, who, after living in the regime, ran away to South Korea. Trump said his “great sacrifice is an inspiration to us all” and that his story is a “testament to the yearning of every human soul to live in freedom.”

    President Trump closed his first State of the Union speech by testifying to the “yearning for freedom” in Americans.

    “That is what our country has always been about,” he said. “That is what Americans have always stood for, always strived for and always done.”

    Trump finished with observing the spirit and resolve of the American people. The president said that “It’s the people who built this country. And it’s the people who are making America great again.

    “As long as we are proud of who we are and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve.”

  • The 1968 Student Revolt - 50 Years Later

    Consumer360Academy: /* Sources */


    {{tasks|copyvio|news|src|npov|mos|re-review}}{{notnews}}{{date|May 16, 2018}}

    Fifty years after the student revolution in May 1968 around the world many people, consumers, citizens, companies and politicians are working together in dialogue about quality of life, quantities of products and services and true pricing for true income. Some people doubt the progress made after the uprising capitalistic trends. But most people and most politicians in the Netherlands and the world as well are now really optimistic about the progress made and the trends towards the future. Former leader of the Green Party Prof Femke Halsema wrote a book about imagination and power (of all stakeholders) for the Month of Philosophy. Marianne Thieme, leader of the Party for the Animals (and Nature), made a lively video presentation about the urgency of a holistic view on Planet Earth. Jesse Klaver leader of the Green Party invited Thomas Piketty to talk about his book Capital and its influence on inequality. Norbert Klein started a new party for free-thinkers to build a better society based on open dialogue, basic income and working for real constructive and social politics for everyone. Internationally we saw the French president arguing to Trump that there is no Planet B so we have to work together worldwide! The Sustainable Development Goals are the new guidelines for all peoples of the world to meet each other and work for the earth and the universe as a whole!

  • Dublin mayor MacDonncha speaks of not sending Irish representative to Israel for Eurovision Song Contest 2019; two European Parliament lawmakers support the boycott

    Pi zero: c/e


    {{date|May 16, 2018}}{{Politics and conflicts}}
    On Sunday, [[Dublin]]'s Lord Mayor {{w|Mícheál MacDonncha}} spoke about not sending [[Ireland|Irish]] representatives to the next year's {{W|Eurovision Song Contest}}, asserting {{W|Palestine}} solidarity. The announcement came just one day after [[Israel]]i singer {{w|Netta Barzilai|Netta}} won this year's Eurovision in [[Portugal|Portuguese]] capital [[Lisbon]]. Two {{w|European Parliament}} lawmakers from Ireland, Lynn Boylann and Nessa Childers, endorsed boycotting next year's contest.

    Speaking to news site ''Dublin Live'', MacDonncha said next year's contest should be boycotted to display solidarity with Palestineans. "I don't think we should send a representative", the mayor said. "I think the horrific ordeal of the Palestinian people needs to be highlighted", MacDonncha said.

    After winning this year's contest, 25-year-old Netta, who performed ''Toy'' featuring chicken dance, chicken noises, and [[Japan]]ese cultural references criticized as {{w|cultural appropriation}}, said, "Thank you for celebrating diversity. Thank you! I love my country. Next year in [[Jerusalem]]!" The country which wins the song contest hosts next year's iteration of Eurovision. Israel claims Jerusalem, including {{W|East Jerusalem}}. Palestine claims East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. {{W|Israel-Palestine conflict}} is on-going for years. Clashes between Israel and Palestine has happened several times. This Monday, more than 50 Palestine civilians were killed in Gaza in a clash against Israeli forces.

    Israeli Prime Minister [[Benjamin Netanyahu]] in a [[twitter|tweet]] congratulated Netta after her victory and said, {{translated quote|he|Hebrew language|!נטע, את כפרה אמיתית. הבאת הרבה כבוד למדינת ישראל! לשנה הבאה ב|Netta, you are a real dear. You brought a lot of honour to the State of Israel! Next year in Jerusalem!}} Israel came to control East Jerusalem as a part of the 1967 {{W|Arab-Israel War}}. Legal sovereignty of Israel's claim of the entire city is not globally acknowledged. Until this Monday, no country in the world had its Israeli embassy in Jerusalem; On Monday, Israel's ally the {{w|United States}} shifted its embassy from {{w|Tel Aviv}} to Jerusalem.

    MacDonncha, speaking to ''Dublin Live'', said, "The Irish-Palestinean solidarity campaign has collected names of 500 artists who have said they would not work in the State of Israel, that they would boycott in the protest and the treatment of Palestinean people". At the time of the contest, Ireland regional lawmaker Órla Nic Biorna tweeted, "Shocked at the support for Israel tonight in the Eurovision. People seem to forget that they [Israel] are a {{wikt|Zionist}} state illegally occupying Palestine".

    Regarding hosting the contest in Jerusalem, European Parliament lawmaker Nessa Childers wrote on Twitter, "Jerusalem? The mind boggles. I thought Tel Aviv." Lynn Boylan of the {{w|Sinn Féin}} party tweeted saying, "Israel wins Eurovision so let's make BDS [Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions] more successful than ever in 2019." Lawmaker Emmett O'Brien replied to Boylan saying "So much pathetic hate against Israel" and later added, "How many times has Palestine been offered peace? Will you condemn the barbarity of {{w|Hamas}}?"

    MacDonncha is banned from entering Israel. Last month, the Israeli Interior ministry tried to bar MacDonncha's entry to Israel. The mayor was invited by the {{w|Palestinian Authority}} for a conference. However, reportedly the misspelt name of MacDonncha failed to bar him from arriving at Israeli capital Tel Aviv from which he went to [[Ramallah]] for the conference. Earlier, the Dublin city council passed a resolution to endorse and support the Palestine-led Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement. The resolution read, "Since its violent establishment in 1948 through the ethnic cleansing of more than half of the indigenous people of Palestine, the state of Israel has denied Palestinians their fundamental rights and has refused to comply with international law [...] this City Council fully supports and endorses the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement for freedom, equality, and justice."

    Dublin's mayor wasn't the only one to promote a boycott. [[Sweden|Swedish]] political party {{w|Vänsterpartiet}} {{w|Malmö}} released a statement boycotting the next year's Eurovision saying, {{translated quote|sv|Swedish language|Vi i Vänsterpartiet Malmö menar att det är av största vikt att göra allt för att fördöma de brott som Israel begår mot det palestinska folket. Vi uppmanar därför Eurovision Song Contest att bojkotta Israel. Det är fullständigt orimligt att Israel får arrangera denna gigantiska musiktävling samtidigt som ockupationen pågår. Vi vill att Israel utesluts från Eurovision på humanitära grunder. Vi kan inte fortsätta dansa samtidigt som övergreppen mot det palestinska folket fortsätter. Bojkotta Israel nu!|We in the Left Party of Malmö think it is vital to do everything to condemn the crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinian people. We therefore urge the Eurovision Song Contest to boycott Israel. It is altogether unreasonable for Israel to host this gigantic music contest while the occupation goes on. We want Israel to be excluded from Eurovision on humanitarian grounds. We can not continue dancing while the persecution of the Palestinian people continues. Boycott Israel now!}}

    {{United States}}
    [[File:Donald and Melania Trump (3).jpg|left|thumb|Donald and Melania Trump during the 2016 campaign for president {{image|Marc Nozell}}]]
    {{w|First Lady of the United States}} (FLOTUS) {{w|Melania Trump}} underwent a embolization surgery Monday for benign {{w|kidney}} condition at the {{w|Washington, D.C.}} area {{w|Walter Reed Army Medical Center}} (WRAMC). {{w|United States}} President {{w|Donald Trump}} spoke to his wife prior to procedure and with the surgical team directly following the procedure.

    Initial reports claim the surgery was successful with no complications and is listed in stable condition, but will likely spend the rest of the week at WRAMC. Boarding {{w|Marine One}} Monday evening, President Trump took the short trip to her bedside. President Trump and Melania Trump have a son Baron but no reports on his location or interaction with his mother or father before or after the surgery.

    The surgery, called an {{w|arterial embolism}}, is a minimally invasive procedure meant to restrict and eliminate blood flow to a tumor or abnormal soft tissue in or around an organ. {{w|Cardiothoracic surgery|Vascular surgeons}} start with a 1 inch (~3 cm) incision along the inner thigh accessing a large blood vessel from the legs to the hip region called the {{w|femoral artery}}. A small tub is put in place for a {{w|catheter}} to be guided via an {{w|Projectional radiography|X-ray}} to the effected tissue. Once at the region, doctors have the options of using {{w|Balloon catheter|balloons}} or {{w|cauterizing}} the feeding blood vessel. Possible major complications from an arterial embolism are infection, internal bleeding, and blood clots dislodging from the intended region traveling to heart causing heart attacks or to the brain causing a stroke.

    The arterial embolism is the most significant surgery for a current FLOTUS since {{w|Nancy Reagan}}'s {{w|mastectomy}} in October 1987. Other notable procedures for sitting FLOTUS's were {{w|Rosalynn Carter}} had a benign lump from her breast in April 1977. {{w|Betty Ford}} also underwent a mastectomy after she was diagnosed with {{w|breast cancer}}.

    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{Middle East infobox}}{{date|May 16, 2018}}
    On Monday, {{w|Palestinian Ministry of Health}} reported at least 58 people were killed and more than 2,700 injured in violent clashes between [[Israel]]i forces and [[Palestine|Palestinian]] protestors at the border fence between Israel and the {{w|Gaza Strip}}. This was the deadliest day of conflict in Gaza since 2014. Israeli military said "violent riots" took place at thirteen locations along the fence. <!-- JPost -->Jewish newspaper ''Maariv'' reported involved Israeli forces using tear gas and live fire in response to stones and incendiary devices from the Palestinians. Death tolls crossed 60 by Tuesday.

    On the same day, the [[United States]] officially moved its embassy in Israel from {{w|Tel Aviv}} to {{w|Jerusalem}}. There were protests against moving the embassy. Palestine claims {{W|East Jerusalem}} to be the capital for their proposed-future state, while Israel claims the entirety of Jerusalem as its capital. Israel took control over East Jerusalem during the {{W|1967 Arab-Israeli War}}. The moving of embassy was first announced on January 24, when United States Vice President [[Mike Pence]] addressed the {{w|Knesset}}, Israel's parliament. Last year, 128 countries had voted for treating US president Donald Trump's instructions to the U.S. State Department to move the U.S. embassy as "null and void". <!-- related news -->

    Speaking to Al Jazeera, spokesperson Asad Abu Sharekh said, "The march is organised by refugees, doctors, lawyers, university students, Palestinian intellectuals, academics, civil society organizations and Palestinian families". The protests have been taking place almost continuously since March 30. Palestinian Health Ministry reported at least 100 people died and thousands were injured in the protests. The protests were planned to build up to Tuesday when the State of Israel marked the seventieth anniversary of its founding, which the Palestinians regard as ''nakba'' or "catastrophy", when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were expelled by Israeli military from their villages in 1948. However, on Tuesday, the dead were being buried and there were no reports of further fighting.

    A number of countries responded to the violent clashes. Palestinian leader {{w|Mahmoud Abbas}} called for three days of mourning and described the deaths as "massacres against our people".<!-- from Al Jazeera --><!-- and said, "the Israeli massacres against our people continue in the Gaza Strip as well as the West Bank. Today is one of the most ferocious days that our people have witnessed". -->

    The {{w|Israel Defense Forces}} (IDF) said they targeted "targets of terrorist activity". Israeli Prime Minister {{w|Benjamin Netanyahu}} spoke in support of the IDF by stating "every country has an obligation to defend its borders", while US {{w|White House}} Deputy Press Secretary {{W|Raj Shah}} accused Hamas movement for "gruesome and unfortunate propaganda attempt". Abu Shariek told Al Jazeera, "Using these claims of Hamas being behind the protests, Israel is trying to sabotage the idea of the march to justify its escalation against protesters."

    [[South Africa]] withdrew its ambassador to Israel in response to the rising death toll, citing "the indiscriminate gravity of the latest Israeli attack". [[Kuwait]] "condemned what has happened" and asked the {{w|United Nations Security Council}} to discuss the issue at an emergency meeting on Tuesday, where it presented a statement calling for an inquiry into the violence. The United States used its veto to block the statement from being adopted by the Security Council.<!--Haaretz-->

    The {{w|United Nations Secretary-General}} {{w|António Guterres}} was described as being "profoundly alarmed by the sharp escalation of violence". He urged both sides to "show the utmost restraint to avoid further loss of life".

    The {{w|United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights}}, {{w|Zeid bin Ra'ad}} tweeted to say, "Shocking killing of dozens, injury of hundreds by Israeli live fire in #Gaza must stop now. The right to life must be respected. Those responsible for outrageous {{w|human rights}} violations must be held to account. The int'l community needs to ensure justice for victims."

  • Netta wins Eurovision Song Competition for Israel

    Acagastya: Undo revision 4407005 by SVTCobra (talk) that is quoted from the letter


    {{date|May 15, 2018}}{{Culture and entertainment}}
    On Saturday, [[Israel]] won its fourth victory, first since 1998, at the {{w|Eurovision Song Contest 2018|Eurovision Song Contest}}, held at [[Lisbon]]'s {{w|Altice Arena}} in [[Portugal]]. {{w|Netta Barzilai}}'s song ''{{w|Toy (song)|Toy}}'' won 529 points from public and professional judges. [[Cyprus]] and [[Austria]] finished second and third respectively with 436 and 342 points.
    [[File:Netta Barzilai - Eurovision 2018 - 1.jpg|thumb|left|Netta at a Eurovision event on May 6. {{Image|Dewayne Barkley for EuroVisionary}} ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/deed.en CC BY-SA 4.0])]]
    Out of 43 countries participating this time, 26 countries including hosts Portugal and the Big Five — [[France]], [[Germany]], [[Italy]], [[Spain]] and the [[United Kingdom]] — competed in the finals. The competition began on May 8. Spain and United Kingdom finished in the bottom five while the hosts and last year's winners, Portugal, ended up at the bottom of the vote ranking; collecting respectively 61, 48, and 39 points.

    Israel won the first semi-final round with 283 points. The 25-year-old Netta won the {{W|HaKokhav HaBa}} competition earlier this year to represent the country in this contest. Netta performed ''Toy'', written by {{W|Doron Medalie}} and Stav Beger, with a Chicken Dance and chicken noises. With a lot of {{w|scat singing}} involved, the song lyrics included, "I'm not your toy; you stupid boy". Her performance included 112 {{W|Maneki-neko|Maneki-nekos}}, [[Japan|Japanese]] beckoning cats used as lucky charms, which were placed in two shelves.<!-- see the video's first few seconds -->

    Apart from the Japanese Maneki-neko dolls, Netta wore a kimono; a Japanese dress, styled her hair in two buns as well as referenced {{w|Pokémon}}, a Japanese anime and video game, in her song, which led to some people including Portuguese writer Joana Ramiro to point out cultural appropriations in her performance. "Can I, however, ask if anyone here has already commented on the quite shocking Japanese cultural bastardisation-appropriation going on in Netta's song?", Ramiro tweeted.

    Shortly after the contest began, last year's winner {{W|Salvador Sobral}} called ''Toy'' "a horrible song". In an interview with Wiwibloggs, Sobral said, "YouTube thought I would like the Israeli song. I opened it and a horrible song came out of it." After winning the contest in Ukraine last year, Sobral had said, "We live in a world of disposable music; fast food music without any content. I think this could be a victory for music with people who make music that actually means something [...] Music is not fireworks; music is feeling. So let’s try to change this and bring music back." ''Toy'''s performance used strobe lighting and quirky noises<!-- not sure if "quirky noises" is okay to say in WN's voice, but listen to the song (at your own risk) to decide -->.

    After Netta was declared the winner, she said, "Thank you so much for choosing ''different''. Thank you so much for accepting differences between us. Thank you for celebrating diversity. Thank you. I love my country. Next year in [[Jerusalem]]." Previously, Israel won the contest in 1978 and 1979, and 1998.

    UK's artist {{W|SuRie}}, who performed ''Storm'', was interrupted in her performance when a stage invader snatched her microphone. UK was given another chance to perform, but SuRie declined after discussing with her team. SuRie said, "We had that conversation, but I was really proud of that performance." "You don't get to do the 100{{w|metre|m}} sprint at the Olympics<!-- linking it will be very ill-timed and ill-placed --> again because your shoelace is untied or something. You had that one shot and that was my moment, and we didn't need to repeat that [...] We had those conversations backstage, I saw the reaction and faces of my team, who were very proud of the recovery and the power of that, and we didn't need to go again", the British singer added.

    As the winner of this edition of the competition, Israel is to host next year's competition. Last year, then 27-year-old Salvador Sobral won the competition, receiving 758 points for the song ''{{W|Amar Pelos Dois}}'', a ballad written by his sister.

    For the preparations of next year's contest, Israeli Deputy Health Minister {{W|Ya'akov Litzman}} wrote a letter to Culture and Sport Minister {{W|Miri Regev}} asking ''shabbat'', the [[Jewish]] holy day to rest, not to be violated. In the letter, he wrote, "In the name of hundreds of thousands of Jewish citizens from all the populations and communities for whom Shabbat observance is close to their hearts, I appeal to you, already at this early stage, before production and all the other details of the event has begun, to be strict [in ensuring] that this matter does not harm the holiness of Shabbat and to work in every way to prevent the desecration of Shabbat, God forbid, as the law and the status quo requires". Last year, he submitted resignation after Jewish workers were made to undertake railway work on ''shabbat''. That time, both Israeli welfare minister {{w|Haim Katz}} and Israeli transportation minister {{w|Yisrael Katz}} expressed potential threat to passengers if the railway work was postponed.

  • Volcanic fissures vent gas and lava across Hawaii's Big Island

    SVTCobra: updated file name - same image


    {{date|May 20, 2018}}{{United States}}
    [[File:Kīlauea Volcano - Dark Ash Plume Rising from Overlook Crater - May 15, 2018.jpg|left|thumb|Ash plume rises from fissure at Kīlauea volcano on May 15. {{Image|[[USGS]]}}]]

    On Thursday morning, before dawn, [[Hawaii]]'s {{w|Kīlauea}} {{w|shield volcano}} erupted again, sending up an ash plume to an altutide of 30,000 {{w|foot (unit)|feet}} (9,100 {{w|metre|meters}}).<!--Guardian May 17--> This follows an earlier eruption Tuesday afternoon, after which authorities issued an aviation alert and to extend an {{w|volcanic ash|ash-fall}} advisory for residents. The current eruption event began May 3 and has caused thousands of people to evacuate their homes.

    Robert Hughes, whose Aloha Junction Bed and Breakfast, is only 1.5 miles from the volcano's crater described the day as otherwise "a nice rainy day" and reportedly some nearby residents slept through the 4:00AM {{w|Hawaii–Aleutian Time Zone|local time}} eruption (1400 {{w|UTC}}).<!--Guardian May 17-->

    Hawaii is one of the [[United States]] and an {{w|archipelago}} in the [[Pacific Ocean]]. Kīlauea is located on the island of Hawaii, generally called the {{w|Hawaii (island)|"Big Island."}} The 2018 eruptions at Kīlauea first started on May 3. Since then, about 20 {{w|fissure vent|fissure vents}} have opened, cracking concrete and giving off steam, lava and toxic gases.
    [[File:USGS Kīlauea multimediaFile-1955.jpg|thumb|left|Lava flows on a road in Hawaii on May 5. {{Image|[[USGS]]}}]]
    The {{w|Hawaiian Volcano Observatory}} (HVO) issued a "notice for aviation" to alert pilots of dangerous conditions. "We're observing more or less continuous emission of ash now with intermittent, more energetic ash bursts or plumes," said Steve Brantley of the HVO. The {{w|United States Geological Survey}} (USGS) also issued a "red alert" which means "major volcanic activity is imminent, underway or suspected with hazardous conditions both on the ground and in the air." <!-- see the tweet in Time source for USGS -->

    The {{w|National Weather Service}} extended its advisory about ash-fall as winds spread the ash and cause elevated risk of respiratory problems for residents. By mid-morning on Thursday, the warning ran until midday (12:00 local, 2200 UTC).

    Monday, authorities reported fissures throwing {{w|lava}} and boulders as far as 500 feet (about 150 meters). The volcanic eruption has destroyed dozens of buildings, and necessitated the evacuation of more than 2000 people.<!--Forbes for # people-->

    The initial eruption was accompanied by a magnitude-6.9 [[earthquake]] and followed by many smaller quakes thereafter. Dozens of homes and other buildings, as well as roads, have been destroyed.<!--Accuweather--> However, the Hawaii Civil Defense Agency sought to calm public worries about a {{w|tsunami}} on Tuesday, stating: "according to the [HVO] there is no geologic evidence for an tsunami-generating earthquake at this time. Any such event is extremely unlikely."<!--Star-Advertiser-->

    The lava released so far has been slow and relatively cool, left over from an earlier event in the 1950s, but there were concerns that fresh, fast-moving lava may be right behind.<!--Guardian--> Although the current eruption event began May 3, technically the volcano hasn't stopped erupting since 1983.<!--Guardian May 17-->

  • Sudanese teenager sentenced to death for killing husband in self-defence after being raped

    SVTCobra: Changed protection level for "Sudanese teenager sentenced to death for killing husband while raping her": Excessive vandalism ([Edit=Allow only autoconfirmed users] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|May 13, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Thursday, a court in {{W|Omdurman}}, [[Sudan]], confirmed death penalty for a nineteen-year-old woman, {{w|Noura Hussein}} who was previously found guilty of premeditated murder of her husband. Hussein, who was married to Abdulrahman Hammad at the age of sixteen, said she stabbed her husband in self-defence during a second rape. Hammad's family declined money for Hammad's killing, and the ''[[shari'a]]'' court announced death by hanging.

    Hussein said she was married at the age of sixteen against her will, after which she took shelter at her aunt's home for three years. According to reports, when Hussein was nineteen, she returned home to visit but her father sent her to her in-laws. She refused to have sex with Hammad and she said she was raped six days later by her husband with assistance from Hammad's relatives. She stabbed Hammad the next day when he tried to rape her again. According to {{W|Amnesty International}}, Noura Hussein's father handed her to police after she fled to her home after stabbing Hammad.

    Sudan is a [[Muslim]]-majority country governed by ''shari'a'' law. Marital rape and child marriage are not illegal in Sudan. The legal age for girls to get married is the age of ten with the consent of guardians. Noura Hussein said the conviction for murder was "shocking moment" but said she knew she would be executed. "It was a shocking moment when the judge convicted me with murder. I knew then that I [would] be executed, leaving my dreams unfulfilled", the teenager said.

    After the confirmation, Hussein's lawyers were given fifteen days to appeal against it. Afrika Youth Movement's activist Eldin Salah, who attended the court hearing said, "Noura's lawyers say they plan to appeal against the decision, but we also need strong international support from organizations such as the [[African Union]], the [[United Nations]] and the [[European Union]] to support her." An online petition campaign for Noura Hussein's defence was launched on {{W|change.org}} and {{W|Equality Now}}, and #JusticeForNoura hashtags were trending on [[Twitter]].

    Hussein was raped six days after she was with her husband. According to Amnesty international, Noura Hussein was first raped on May 2, 2017, when her husband's cousins restrained her while Hammad was raping her. Next day, when Hammad tried to rape her again, Hussein stabbed him with a knife in self-defence. Hussein has been in jail since May 2017. The July 2017 ruling pronounced it as "intentional murder".

    Equality Now said they were writing a mercy plea to the Sudanese president {{W|Omar al-Bashir}}. Equality Now's Global Director Yasmeen Hassan said, "Noura is a victim, not a criminal, and should be treated as such."

  • German beer company Eichbaum halts production, issues public apology for printing Saudi Arabian flag on beer bottle caps

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "German beer company Eichbaum issues public apology for printing Saudi Arabian flag on beer bottle caps": Excessive vandalism ([Edit=Allow only autoconfirmed users] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|May 14, 2018}}{{Germany}}
    On Friday, [[Germany|German]] {{w|beer}} company {{w|Eichbaum}} issued a public apology and said they have halted their marketing campaign of printing caps of beer bottles with flags of 32 countries participating in next month's {{W|FIFA World Cup}} in [[Russia]]. [[Saudi Arabia]]'s flag printed on a beer bottle was condemned by many on social networking platforms.

    {{w|alcoholic beverage|foreign=suppress|Alcohol}} is banned in Saudi Arabia. It is considered ''{{wikt|haraam}}'' in [[Islam]], meaning Muslims are prohibited from consuming alcohol. Saudi Arabia's flag bears the Islamic ''{{w|shahada}}'', or the creed "Kalimat al-Tawheed", that is {{translated quote|ar|Arabic language|لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا الله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ الله|There is no god but Allah, and Muhammed is the messenger of Allah}}.<!-- translation copied from the flag --> Saudi Arabia's embassy in Germany published a statement on [[Twitter]] saying printing the flag with shahada on beer beverage "constitutes a violation to the holiness of the word, an insult to the flag and a provocation against the feelings of Muslims".

    The {{w|Mannheim}}-based company, in their statement, said, "We have no interest in religious or political manifestations — certainly not about our products. If we have offended you unintentionally, we apologise." Company's marketing director Holger Vatter-Schönthal said, "We did not know that the characters were a creed. We have only checked whether the flags of the participants are correct."

    The marketing strategy was condemned by Saudi Arabia's embassy in German capital [[Berlin]]. Eichbaum said they are trying to remove all the beer bottles bearing the Saudi Arabian flag.

  • Pakistani parliament passes bill for transgender rights

    Continentaleurope:


    {{date|May 11, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Tuesday, [[Pakistan]]'s {{w|Parliament of Pakistan|parliament}} passed a bill at [[Islamabad]]'s National Assembly which granted [[transgender]] people various civil rights. The bill, "Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act", which was presented by {{W|Pakistan Peoples Party}}'s lawmaker {{W|Naveed Qamar}}, was approved by the senate in March, and now awaits signature of the president {{W|Mamnoon Hussain}}.

    The bill ensures people have the right to identify themselves as male, female or as "{{w|third gender}}", also known as ''khawaja sira'' in Pakistan. This identity choice is to be reflected in the {{W|National Database and Registration Authority}}, as well as other official documents like passports and driving licence.

    Per the bill, transgender people can now cast votes, run for election, have the right to assemble, and can obtain loans for business startups. They are also eligible to inherit property per their identified gender. Transgender people are to be no longer discriminated at school, working place, for medical services, public transportation facilities, by their employers, or at private business. Separate confinement areas, jails and prisons are to be established for transgenders. Anyone found guilty of forcing transgenders to beg is to face a six-month prison term as well as 50 thousand {{w|Pakistani rupee|rupees}} fine.

    The legislation was sent to and later approved by the {{W|Council of Islamic Ideology}}, a government advisory body. [[Lahore]]-based activist Mehlab Jameel, who was involved in writing the bill, said the Council of Islamic Ideology "appreciated that the bill included directions on inheritance in accordance with {{w|Shari'a}}<!-- she said it, and technically, the transliteration has to be Shari'a and not Sharia -->" law.

    Last year, transgenders were included for the census count for the first time. Mehlab Jameel said, "the definition of 'transgender' [...] was basically based on genitals" in the initial draft of the bill, written last year.

    Speaking to ''{{W|National Public Radio}}'', Jameel said, "This kind of development is not only unprecedented in Pakistani history, but it's one of the most progressive laws in the whole world." {{W|Human Rights Watch}} has reported at least four deaths of transgenders in the country since the beginning of 2018, and at least 57 transgenders were killed in Pakistan since 2015. Pakistan's &mdash;reportedly&mdash; first transgender news anchor and activist {{W|Marvia Malik}} told ''Images'' the transgenders "are forced to dance and beg because they have no other means to make ends meet." "My trans friends who have masters degrees don't have jobs which is why they end up on streets or become sex workers", Malik added.

    The draft for the policy to implement this bill is not yet prepared. From the date the bill was approved, President Hussain has ten days to sign the bill or reject it.

  • Germany: Berlin court says neutrality law above religious freedom, bans teachers from wearing headscarves in primary school

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Berlin court: neutrality law above German religious freedom, bans teacher headscarves in primary school": Excessive vandalism ([Edit=Allow only autoconfirmed users] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|May 12, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Wednesday, a state labour court in the [[Germany|German]] capital [[Berlin]] pronounced the neutrality law of the city-state, which disallows public employees from wearing religious clothing and symbols, was in accordance with the {{w|Basic Law of Germany|German constitution}}. Justice Arne Boyer, said the neutrality law was above the freedom of religion. The ruling comes after a female [[Muslim]] teacher, who taught in a primary school for a day, complained the neutrality laws prohibited her from wearing a headscarf and violated her freedom to practice any religion.

    Public servants across the country are barred from covering their face at work, with some exceptions such as firefighters for whom it is a question of safety. However, the ban does not include the ''{{wikt|hijab}}'', a headscarf mostly worn by Muslim women. Court spokesperson Martin Dressler said, "Primary school children should be free of the influence that can be exerted by religious symbols".

    This ruling came just two weeks after the recently-elected {{w|Bavaria}}n Minister President {{w|Markus Söder}} of the {{w|Christian Social Union in Bavaria|Christian Social Union}} gave orders to hang the [[Christian]] cross on every state building, in school classrooms, and the courts, saying it was a "clear avowal of our {{w|Culture of Bavaria|Bavarian identity}} and Christian values".

    Last year, the Berlin labour court decided that a school discriminated on the basis of religion when it denied a job to another Muslim teacher. The school failed to show how the teacher's headscarf was "a threat to peace at school". The teacher received [[EUR]] 8680 (about [[USD]] 10,300) as compensation.

    Regulations on headscarves are varied amongst the different states of Germany. Teachers in {{w|Bremen}} are not prohibited from wearing a face scarf. In {{w|North Rhine-Westphalia}}, the allowance is on a case-by-case basis. One primary school headteacher in {{w|Hesse}} wrote to parents stating headwear was not allowed in the classroom.

    Per the ruling of this case, the teacher can wear a headscarf while teaching secondary school students. She can still appeal against the court's decision.

  • US: White House press aid mocking Sen. McCain's cancer diagnosis

    Pi zero: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review


    {{tasks|re-review}}{{date|May 14, 2018}}
    {{United States}}
    Last week, a {{w|White House}} press aide, Kelly Sadler, in a meeting dismissed opposition by Senator {{w|John McCain|John McCain}} to {{w|United States}} President {{w|Donald Trump|Donald Trump}}'s choice for {{w|Central Intelligence Agency}} (CIA) Director, {{w|Gina Haspel}}, by invoking McCain's brain cancer prognosis. ''{{w|The Hill (newspaper)|The Hill}}'' reported Sadler negating the concerns by saying, "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway." which garnered bi-partisan criticism since Friday, with Monday's announcement the White House would discipline Sadler and the leakers internally going forward.
    [[File:John McCain After Being Released as Prisoner of War.jpg|left|thumb|John McCain being released from his prisoner of war confinement in 1973. {{image|{{w|US National Archives}}}}]]
    Trump nominated Haspel to fill the vacated seat of current CIA Director {{w|Mike Pompeo}}, whom Trump promoted to {{w|United States Department of State|Secretary of State}} after the firing of {{w|Rex Tillerson}} last March. To take the position, Haspel must undergo a confirmation hearing, before the {{w|US Senate|Senate}} grants directorship. Senator McCain has expressed concerns over Haspel's association with {{w|Black site|black site prisons}} and {{w|enhanced interrogation techniques|enhanced interrogation techniques}} which met international criteria for {{w|torture}}. Haspel is a career CIA operative with much of her history classified for national security, so most of her testimony in front of McCain is to occur behind closed doors.

    McCain, age 81, discovered he had {{w|Glioblastoma|glioblastoma multiforme}}, an aggressive form of brain cancer, after receiving a surgical procedure to remove a blood clot from his upper left eye. The clot had initially been thought to be a recurring {{w|Melanoma|malignant melanoma}} mass developed during McCain's {{w|John McCain#Prisoner of war|imprisonment during the Vietnam War}}. The late Senator {{w|Ted Kennedy}}, {{w|Democratic Party (United States)|Democrat}} from {{w|Massachusetts}}, suffered from the same cancer until his death on August 25, 2009. There is no known cure for glioblastoma, but McCain is undergoing {{w|chemotherapy}} and {{w|Radiation therapy|radiation}} at the {{w|Mayo Clinic}} with input from the {{w|Barrows Neurological Institute}} located in downtown {{w|Phoenix, Arizona}} with goal of extending life.

    During McCain's imprisonment, he was subjected to multiple physical and mental {{w|torture}} techniques including {{w|waterboarding}}, leaving him with permanently disfigured bones and other injuries. As McCain is a ranking member of the politically powerful {{w|United States Senate Committee on Armed Services|Senate Armed Services Committee}}, Haspel must answer McCain's questions about her level of knowledge and activity surrounding the interrogation program before being approved by the full {{w|United States Senate|Senate}}.

    Sadler's statement, confirmed by two White House sources to ''{{w|Fox News}}'''s producer Fin Gomez, is not the first publicly controversial statements directed at McCain by Trump and his aids. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump made his most notable disparaging comments about McCain's service record during the 2015 Family Leadership Summit in {{w|Ames, Iowa}}, saying, "He's not a war hero. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured."

    The White House never denied Sadler's statement, but initially released, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this difficult time." Prominent colleagues in {{w|United States Congress|Congress}} have criticized Sadler's remarks. Longtime supporter Senator {{w|Lindsey Graham}}'s statement, "Ms. Sadler, may I remind you that John McCain has a lot of friends in the United States Senate on both sides of the aisle. Nobody is laughing in the Senate." Former Vice President {{w|Joe Biden}} also gave his support, stating, "People have wondered when decency would hit rock bottom with this administration. It happened yesterday."

    Wife {{w|Cindy McCain}} responded with a [[twitter|Tweet]], "May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren." {{w|Meghan McCain}}, daughter and ''{{w|The View (talk show)|The View}}'' co-host, regularly visits and is the most public defender of her father from the Trump Administration's differences. Sadler reached out to Meghan McCain Friday morning and apologized about the statement over the phone saying she would issue a public apology. However the promised public apology was never distributed. Meghan McCain spoke out against the White House and Sadler's inaction later Friday with, "I don't understand what kind of environment you're working in when that would be acceptable and then you could come to work the next day and still have a job."

    During Monday's press briefing, Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah announced all further disciplinary actions would be taken internally. Shah introduced the leakers as also being complicit stating, "When you work in any work environment...if you aren't able in internal meetings to speak your mind, or convey thoughts, or say anything that you feel without feeling like your colleagues will betray you, that creates a very difficult work environment." Shah's sentiment was reiterated by a Trump tweet, "The so-called leaks coming out of the White House are a massive over exaggeration put out by the Fake News Media in order to make us look as bad as possible. With that being said, leakers are traitors and cowards, and we will find out who they are."

    McCain did not address Sadler's statements directly, but reiterated his stance on Haspel's record, "Ms. Haspel's role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing. Her refusal to acknowledge torture's immorality is disqualifying ... I believe the Senate should exercise its duty of advice and consent and reject this nomination." Haspel will continue to meet with Senators in open and closed door testimony. Her confirmation by the full Senate is being held until prominent Senators are satisfied with her answers.

  • Indian Supreme Court orders transfer of Asifa Bano's gang rape and murder case to Pathankot

    Pi zero: added Category:Acagastya (Wikinewsie) using HotCat


    {{date|May 10, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Monday, the [[India|Indian]] [[Supreme Court of India|Supreme Court]] transferred the trial of the gang rape and murder of [[Kashmir|Kashmiri]] girl Asifa Bano to [[Punjab, India|Punjab]]'s {{W|Pathankot}} district. The Supreme Court asserted it was to ensure a fair and just result for the victim and the accused. "We are here for the fundamental concept of fair trial for both victims and the accused", the court said.

    Asifa Bano was an eight-year-old [[Muslim]] nomadic girl of the {{w|Bakarwal}} tribe who was reported missing on January 10. According to the police investigation, she was kidnapped, sedated, held captive, and gang raped before she was strangled and killed. Her corpse was found in {{W|Kathua}} a week after her disappearance. All eight accused for Bano's rape and death are [[Hindu|Hindus]], of which two are police officials.

    Bano's father approached the Supreme Court requesting the case be shifted to a different court, suggesting {{W|Chandigarh}}. Some of the accused asked the case be heard in [[Jammu and Kashmir]]. Bano's family and their lawyer, Deepika Singh Rajawat, had received death threats and personal threats. The Supreme Court, headed by {{W|Chief Justice of India}}, {{W|Dipak Misra}}, ordered continuing security for the victim's family as well as the lawyer. They also ordered continuing security for the juvenile accused for Bano's rape and death.

    Stating fair trial is a "{{Wikt|sacrosanct}} principle<!-- did I forget to write it? --> under Article 21" of the {{w|sister=s|Constitution of India|Indian constitution}}, which corresponds to the fundamental right to life, the Supreme Court said, "We are transferring the case to Pathankot from Kathua for trial [...] the case will be heard daily so that the verdict can be reached in a country where such cases can run for years or decades". Pathankot is a district in Punjab, and it is about 30 {{w|kilometre|kilometres}} (about 20 {{w|mile|miles}}) from Kathua. The Supreme Court also ordered the hearing sessions cannot be adjourned and in-camera to ensure the safety of witnesses. There are about 221 witnesses for this case. Statements in {{W|Urdu}} are to be translated in English. The Supreme Court instructed Pathankot's district judge not to transfer the case to any other court.

    Three of the accused, Sanjhi Ram, Vishal Jangotra, and Parvesh Kumar asked for a probe by the {{W|Central Bureau of Investigation}}. Dismissing the plea, the Supreme Court said, "When charge sheet is filed, why should we want another agency?"

    Per the charge sheet filed by Jammu and Kashmir police on April 9, Asifa Bano was raped at a place of worship.

    Last month, after protests against the rape and murder of Asifa Bano in various cities across the nation, Indian {{w|Union Cabinet|cabinet}} ministers passed an ordinance allowing the death sentence for those convicted of raping a girl under the age of twelve. However, per Article 20 (1) of the Indian Constitution, the ordinance is not applicable in this case. Article 20 (1) states, "No person shall be convicted of any offence except for violation of a law in force at the time of the commission of the act charged as an offence, nor be subjected to a penalty greater than that which might have been inflicted under the law in force at the time of the commission of the offence."

    The trial is to be conducted in accordance with the {{W|Ranbir Penal Code}} (RPC). Due to special provisions for Jammu and Kashmir mentioned in Article 370 of the constitution<!-- BBC mentions this, or check the CoI's article 370 -->, the Ranbir Penal Code is applicable for Jammu and Kashmir; since the case falls in the {{wikt|jurisdiction}} of that state. The RPC, which is different from the {{w|Indian Penal Code}} (IPC), has been in effect since before Indian independence from {{w|Great Britain}}, when {{w|Ranbir Singh}} of the {{w|Dogra dynasty}} was the king of the then-independent state. Deepika Singh Rajawat, the lawyer who took Asifa Bano's case said, "There is not much difference between IPC and RPC, especially for rape and murder. Even though the order of sections are different, that would not affect the hearing of the Kathua case."<!-- the reason Hindi quote is not used with translated quote template is because I don't know for sure that the lawyer actually said that in Hindi -->

    The next hearing is scheduled for July 9.

  • 2018 Hawaii volcanic eruption

    Green Giant: Abandoned?


    {{abandoned|May 20, 2018|userspace=}}

    {{tasks|news|mos|re-review}}{{date|May 7, 2018}}{{Hawaii}}
    The [[Hawaii]]an shield volcano {{w|Kīlauea}} erupted on May 3rd. The eruption was accompanied by a {{w|2018 Hawaii earthquake|6.9 level earthquake}} one day later and several smaller quakes.

    Since then, over 1700 people have been forced to leave their homes. On Sunday, they were authorized to return briefly to their homes to get some important belongings such as medicines and pets. On Monday morning, all residents were urged to leave as new lava streams are coming. An emergency alert has been issued. The air is dangerous due to huge amounts of {{w|sulfur dioxide}}. Thus far, at least 26 homes have been destroyed by the lava streams.

  • Leaders of both Koreas request foreign involvement in decommissioning of nuclear test site

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Leader of South Korea requests foreign involvement in decommissioning of nuclear test site": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|May 4, 2018}}{{North Korea}}
    On Tuesday, [[South Korea]]n President [[Moon Jae-in]] contacted the [[United Nations]] and requested U.N. supervision of the decommissioning of {{w|Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site}}<!--Reuters-->, a subterranean tunnel network beneath {{w|Mount Mantap}} where all six of [[North Korea]]'s nuclear tests took place. North Korean leader [[Kim Jong Un]] reportedly said during April 27's session of the 2018 Inter-korea summit he would invite journalists and other experts from other countries to witness the site's closure.<!--Guardian and NBC news-->
    [[File:2018 inter-Korean summit 01.jpg|left|thumb|Kim Jong Un (left) and Moon Jae-in (right) shaking hands on April 27. {{image|{{w|Blue House}}}}]]
    A statement issued by the {{w|Blue House}}, the South Korean presidential residence<!--defined in passing in Reuters-->, said President Moon phoned U.N. Secretary General [[António Guterres]] to request the United Nations confirm the shutdown, and Guterres responded, while that specific request had to go through the [[U.N. Security Council|Security Council]] he would assign someone at the U.N. to work with South Korea.<!--Reuters and NHK Japan--> Moon's office also reported Kim Jong Un saying he would invite experts from the [[United States]] and other countries to view the site as it was closed.<!--NBC-->

    On April 27, Kim and Moon met at a border village called {{w|Panmunjom}} to discuss relations between their two countries<!--Guardian historic-->. They emerged with the {{w|Panmunjom Declaration}}, calling for removal of all nuclear weapons from the [[Korean Peninsula]]<!--Guardian and others-->. According to Moon's spokesperson, Kim told Moon, "If we maintain frequent meetings and build trust with the United States and receive promises for an end to the war and a non-aggression treaty, then why would be need to live in difficulty by keeping our nuclear weapons?"<!--Guardian-->
    <!-- [[File:Moon_Jae-in_in_Russia.jpg|right|thumb|Moon Jae-in in July 2017{{image|[http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/by-date/07.07.2017 The Kremlin]}}]] Use left righ to group two images together, we don't want it to appear in sources section-->
    [[International Atomic Energy Agency]] (IAEA) officials, in remarks to {{w|NBC News}}, said the IAEA is willing to assist with the decommissioning of Punggye-ri.

    Director {{w|Jeffrey Lewis (academic)|Jeffrey Lewis}} of the {{w|James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies}} described the closure as "of limited value, but it's not meaningless. [...] I would compare it to the blowing up of the cooling tower at {{w|Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center|Yongbyon}} in 2008."<!--NBC-->

    Last week, {{w|University of Science and Technology of China|Chinese geologists}} published a report saying the tunnels of Punggye-ri are likely to have partially collapsed after last September's nuclear test, itself of seismic magnitude 6.3 <!--Guardian McCurry "6.3 magnitude tremor"--> and triggering subsequent earthquakes.<!--Guardian McCurry--> Kim said this was not the case: "Some say that we are terminating facilities that are not functioning, but you will see that we have two more tunnels that are bigger than the existing ones and that they are in good condition," again reported through Moon's spokesperson. <!--Guardian-->

    "This is a small but welcome step. But, as always, we must take North Korea's actions with appropriate caution," said former United States diplomat {{w|Mintaro Oba}}. "We can't rule out that Kim Jong Un wants to be seen as a maverick. He has a clear taste for bold moves that surprise the international community, something that sets him apart from his father."<!--Guardian-->

    "If reports are true that the tunnels have collapsed," said Duyeon Kim of the Korean Peninsula Future Forum think tank, "then the test site would be useless for future nuclear tests anyway, so it would just be a symbolic gesture to close it down[...] It's not a serious or sincere gesture to denuclearize."<!--NBC--> He also observed, "Advanced nuclear states don't need to conduct explosive tests after a certain point, so Pyongyang might be trying to show it is a part of that nuclear club."

    Officially, the {{w|Korean War}}, which began in 1950, never ended. There was a cease-fire in 1953 but no formal peace treaty. <!--Guardian Everything Summit--> At the April 27 summit, the leaders discussed nuclear disarmament, the reuniting of families separated by the partition, and general relations between the two countries.<!--Guardian Hails-->

    Kim also announced plans to reverse a 2015 change to North Korea's time zone. The country's clocks are currently set 30 minutes ahead of South Korea's. "I feel sad to see that there are two clocks hung on the wall of the Peace House, one for Seoul time and the other for Pyongyang time," Moon's spokesperson reported Kim said during the talks. "Since it is us who changed the time standard, we will return to the original one."<!--Guardian-->

    Kim Jong Un and [[United States]] President [[Donald Trump]] have spoken of meeting in a few weeks, but no date or location has been firmly announced.<!--Reuters--> <!--NBC--> President Moon plans to visit Pyongyang in person in the fall.<!--Guardian Hails-->

  • U.S. actor Bill Cosby found guilty of sexual assault in second trial

    Darkfrog24: rm change description


    {{prepared}}{{date|April 27, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}

    [[File:The World Affairs Council and Girard College present Bill Cosby (6343662303) (cropped to Cosby).jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Cosby in 2011{{image|[https://www.flickr.com/people/26702824@N08 The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia]}}]]

    Today, Judge {{w|Steven O'Niell}} sentenced [[United States]] [[Comedy|comedian]] and [[television]] actor [[Bill Cosby]], 80, to SPECIFIC PUNISHMENT. He was found guilty of three counts of [[Indecent assault|aggravated indecent assault]] by a {{w|Norristown, Pennsylvania|Norristown}}, [[Pennsylvania]] jury last April after his first trial ended in a {{wikt|hung jury}} in June 2017.

    The jury, which contained five women and seven men, deliberated for 14 hours before declaring Cosby guilty of drugging and assaulting {{w|Andrea Constand}}. All three counts stemmed from the same encounter at Cosby's home in January 2004.

    Most of the dozens of public allegations against Cosby were too old and beyond the {{w|statute of limitations}}, meaning prosecutors could not charge Cosby with crimes. However, Constand's case with the assault occurring in 2004 had not expired. Five women testified about similar experiences with Cosby knowing charges for their experiences would not be brought against Cosby.

    Cosby's lawyers argued Constand was a "pathological liar" and Cosby has been swept up in the {{w|Me Too movement}}, in which many female celebrities have publicly claimed prominent men harassed or assaulted them and they kept quiet for years.

    The defense called Marguerite Jackson, a coworker of Constand's at Temple University, as a witness. Jackson testified Constand had talked about {{w|frame (crime)|framing}} some prominent person for a lawsuit. Constand did sue Cosby in civil court after prosecutors at the time told her they would not file criminal charges. The civil suit had a settlement of [[US$]]3.4 million to Constand.

    Lawyer {{w|Gloria Allred}}, retained by some of Cosby's accusers, told the public, "Justice has been done! [...] We are so happy that finally we can say women are believed."

    District Attorney Kevin Steele told the press, "He used his celebrity, he used his wealth, he used his network of supporters to help him conceal his crimes[...] Now, we really know today who was really behind that act, who the real Bill Cosby was."

    Judge O'Neill can issue a ruling for a maximum sentence of 10 years per charge. The sentences can also be served consecutively rather than concurrently, meaning Cosby could be sentenced to a maximum 30 years in prison. The 1982 Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing recommends detention for 22 to 36 months per count, meaning Cosby would be expected to serve at least 22 months.

    Former federal prosecutor Jack Meyerson told the press, "I would think the big battle is whether in fact he gets jail time[...] Given the public scrutiny over the case and Cosby's celebrity, [...] the judge may feel pressured to send Cosby to prison. Given the circumstances of the case, and public attention, I think he would have to send a message with some jail time."

    District Attorney Steele requested that Cosby, who has been out on bail but confined to his home, be sent to jail immediately, saying Cosby has access to an airplane and may try to run away. Cosby shouted back, "He doesn't have a plane, you asshole!" and that he was "sick of" Steele. Steele did not ask for expedited sentencing. Judge O'Neill instead ordered Cosby to pay US$1 million in bail money and not to leave {{w|Montgomery County, Pennsylvania|Montgomery County}}, where the Cosby residence is located.

    Sentencing hearings in Pennsylvania usually take place two to three months after conviction. In the meantime, Cosby's lawyers have announced they plan to appeal the conviction, and it is possible Cosby will remain out on bail until that appeal runs its course.

  • India: Jammu and Kashmir government orders private tuiutions to shut down for 90 days

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "India: Jammu and Kashmir government orders private tuitions to shut down for 90 days": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|April 25, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Sunday, the government of [[Jammu and Kashmir]], [[India]], ordered private academic coaching institutions for students until and including {{w|Education in India|anchor=12th (Senior Secondary or Higher Secondary) Exam|class XII}} to shut down for the next three months calling those institutions "distractions" for the students; with an exception of coaching institutions preparing students for professional exams.

    After meeting the heads of some educational institutions, the state's education minister {{w|Syed Altaf Bukhari}} said: "We had a discussion with our principals today to how to make the education system better. We have come to a conclusion that the distractions which affect our education system [...] one of those distractions are the coaching centres". He added the government is to review the status of the tuition centres with respect to their decisions twice a month.

    High schools and colleges have suspended classes since the beginning of the month. Boycotting the classes, students protested against two encounters in {{w|Shopian}} that resulted in the killing of four civilians as well as twelve militants. Then there were protests against the gang rape and murder of eight-year-old girl Asifa Bano in {{w|Kathua}} who police said was held captive and sedated at a temple in January. Retired government official Sanji Ram and several others —including multiple police officers— were arrested earlier this month for, or in relation to, the gang rape and murder of Asifa. Asifa's corpse was found in the village of Rasana on January 10.

    Some of the protesters clashed with the state security forces, and pellets were fired over the protesters. Bukhari said, "Security of the students is paramount, that is why we kept schools and colleges closed. But now the students should control their emotions and go back to their classes [...] Now, enough is enough, they have their protest and should attend school now." Bukhari went on to add that they cannot "afford to have future a generation of illiterates and uneducated." He said the students who come to the road for protests "would be treated as rowdies".

    According to an official in Jammu and Kashmir's education department, the motivation behind the temporary shut down of tuitions was "when the coaching centres are closed, students would not have an option but to attend schools". Coaching Centre Association president Junaid Yousuf responded to this ban, saying: "What is the point of ordering closure of coaching centres and keeping schools open? This defies logic. You are not shutting down the places where protests occur and closed those centres where there are no protests".

    "This distraction leads to fall in attendances in schools. We are not against coaching centres; we will first see how schools function. Therefore immediately we will request and order the coaching centres to stop their shops for some time[...] We are the custodians of the students and want that they are not distracted", the Education Minister said.

  • India: Cabinet approves capital punishment for rape of girls under the age of twelve

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "India: Cabinet approves capital punishment for rape of girls under age twelve": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|April 23, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Saturday, [[India]]'s {{w|Union Cabinet}} approved capital punishment in an ordinance for the rape of girls under the age of twelve. This comes after nationwide protests that took place in various cities after an eight-year-old girl was gang-raped and killed in {{W|Kathua}} city in [[Jammu and Kashmir]].
    [[File:Kathua Unnao Protests New Delhi.jpg|left|thumb|Protesters for the Kathua and Unnao rape case at Parliament Street, New Delhi, India.{{image|[[Commons:User:DiplomatTesterMan|DiplomatTesterMan]]}} ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/deed.en CC BY-SA 4.0])]]
    "Government has taken serious note of incidents of rape in various parts of the country [...] while expressing deep anguish over such incidents, it has been decided to devise a comprehensive response to deal with the solution", the special emergency cabinet said. Earlier this month retired government official Sanji Ram and several others &mdash;including multiple police officers&mdash; were arrested for, or in relation to, the gang rape and murder of Asifa, an eight-year-old Muslim girl, who police said was held captive and sedated at a temple in Kathua. On April 13, India's {{W|Central Bureau of Investigation}} arrested {{w|Kuldeep Singh Sengar}}, a {{W|Bharatiya Janta Party}}'s Minister of Legislative Assembly, who is accused of raping a teenage girl in {{W|Unnao}}, [[Uttar Pradesh]]. Another rape and murder of an eleven-year-old girl took place in [[Gujarat]]'s {{W|Surat}} district. According to the postmortem report, she was tortured, raped, strangled and smothered.

    The ordinance, which was approved by India's president {{W|Ram Nath Kovind}} on Sunday, prescribed {{W|National Crime Records Bureau}} to maintain nationwide database and profiles for sexual offenders, setting up new fast-track courts, special rape-case forensic kits in all police stations and hospitals, and setting up special forensic labs.

    The cabinet also recommended mandatory completion of rape investigation within a period of two months, prison term for convicts of rape of girls under the age of sixteen has been raised to twenty years, extending up to life-long imprisonment. Previously, it was ten years. Prison term for convicts of rape of females above the age of sixteen has been increased from seven to ten years. The ordinance document had no mention of rape of boys and men, [[Reuters]] reported.

    In 2016, about 40 thousand rape cases were reported across the union, and roughly 40% of the victims were children. A law ministry official said, "An ordinance today is the best was to deal with the issue. An amendment bill will have to wait when the monsoon session of parliament commences." The {{w|Parliament of India|anchor=Session of parliament|monsoon session}} of the {{w|Parliament of India}} begins in July.

    The {{w|Indian Penal Code}}, {{w|Code of Criminal Procedure (India)|Code of Criminal Procedure}}, {{w|Child sexual abuse laws in India|anchor=The Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act|Protection of Children from Sexual Offences}} and {{w|Indian Evidence Act|Evidence Act}} are affected by the ordinance.

    Women's right activist Kirti Singh told [[Al Jazeera]], "Studies have shown that death penalty does not act as deterrent. Our experience shows the same. We are against death penalty." She added, "Some people in India act in with impunity, thinking that they won't be punished. The certainty of the punishment, rather than severity of it, should be made sure".

    The December 2012 gang rape case in India's capital [[New Delhi]] led to the amendment of criminal laws, establishing a provision of the death penalty to the convict if a woman is killed or left in a "vegetative state" after rape. It came as an ordinance, originally. The adult convicts of that case were sentenced to death<!-- except for the juvenile one, who was set free, and one convict, who died while the procedure was going on -->, but it has not been carried out. The last time a convict received capital punishment in India was in 2015.

    On Friday, [[Arsene Wenger|Arsène Wenger]], manager of [[England|English]] [[London|capital]] [[Football (soccer)|football]] club [[Arsenal FC]] announced he is to leave the club after the season end. "After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season", the 68-year-old manager said.

    The [[France|Frenchman]] is the longest currently-serving {{W|Premier League}} manager, having managed Arsenal for 21 and a half years. He succeeded {{W|Bruce Rioch}} as Arsenal's manager on October 1, 1996. During his tenure, Wenger won three Premier League titles, seven {{W|FA Cup|FA Cups}} and seven {{W|FA Community Shield}} titles. In 2002&ndash;2003, Arsenal became the only club to win the Premier League undefeated.<!-- rebranded => PL in '92 --> Under Wenger, ''The Gunners'' qualified for the [[UEFA Champions League]] for 20 consecutive seasons.

    Arsenal under Wenger has had over 57% win rate in the English Premier League. Arsenal was sixth in the league table when Wenger announced the decision, fourteen points behind fourth-placed {{W|Tottenham Hotspur}}, their arch-rivals. Arsenal is to face [[Atlético Madrid]] in the {{W|UEFA Europa League}} in the coming week. Arsenal trails current Premier League winners [[Manchester City]] by 33 points.

    Last week, Arsenal lost their eleventh Premier League match of the season, which ended in a 2&ndash;1 win for {{W|Newcastle United}}. Under Wenger, Arsenal has never lost more than eleven matches in a single season.

    "This is one of the most difficult days we have ever had in all our years in sport. One of the main reasons we got involved with Arsenal was because of what Arsène has brought to the club on and off the pitch. His longevity and consistency over such a sustained period at the highest level of the game will never be matched", Arsenal majority shareholder {{W|Stan Kroenke}} said.

    "I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years [...] I want to thank the staff, the players, the Directors and the fans who make this club so special", Wenger said.
