Loretta Lynn returns after stroke to honor Alan Jackson at Country Music Hall of Fame induction
(23 Oct 2017) LORETTA LYNN RETURNS AFTER STROKE TO HONOR ALAN JACKSON AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTION Country icon Loretta Lynn returned to the Country Music Hall of Fame for the first time since she suffered a stroke in May, to formally induct Alan Jackson, Sunday (22 OCT. 2017). Jackson joined late guitarist and singer Jerry Reed and songwriter Don Schlitz to become the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame during the ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee. Lynn, who cancelled her tour dates this year to recover, said Jackson was the only person that could make her leave her house. She recalled meeting Jackson when he was a nervous young artist decades ago and knowing then that he would "be one of the greatest singers in country music." "He hadn't let me down," said Lynn, who is also a member of the Hall of Fame. The 59-year-old Jackson is one of country music's most successful solo artists, having sold nearly 45 million albums in the United States and had 26 singles reach the top of the Billboard country charts. Many of his hits became instant classics, from the bar-room staple "Chattahoochee" to the somber "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" written after Sept. 11, 2001. Reed, who died at age 71 in 2008, was first known as an in demand studio musician with a unique finger picking style on the guitar. He played for and wrote songs for stars like Elvis Presley and Porter Wagoner. In later years, he started appearing in TV and movies, most notably playing Burt Reynolds' sidekick in "Smokey and the Bandit." He also sang many of the songs on the soundtrack, including "East Bound and Down." His daughters, Seidina Hubbard and Lottie Zavala, accepted the honor on his behalf. Schlitz, 65, from Durham, North Carolina, had his first songwriting hit in 1978 when Kenny Rogers recorded his song "The Gambler," which became Rogers' signature song throughout his career. Songs he helped write include "On the Other Hand" and "Forever and Ever, Amen," both sung by Randy Travis. Aloe Blacc and Vince Gill sang a duet version of "The Gambler" at the ceremony, while singers Charlie Worsham and Mary Chapin Carpenter also performed his songs in his honor.

(23 Jul 2017) 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' STARS MEET FANS AT COMIC-CON The stars of "Justice League" got up close and personal with their fans on Saturday (22 July) at Comic-Con in San Diego. Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher signed posters and chatted with attendees of the massive pop culture expo. They had just taken the stage to share footage and talk about the upcoming film, which has had its own fair share of upheaval recently when director Zack Snyder exited for personal reasons and Joss Whedon took over the reshoots and completion of the film. The footage focused heavily on Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, who emerged as the clear favorite of the fans in the audience who screamed at every shot of the Amazonian warrior. "Wonder Woman" recently became the highest grossing of the four DC Extended Universe films. Affleck plays Batman, Momoa is Aquaman, Fisher is Cyborg and Miller is The Flash in the movie, set for release in November.

The Doors celebrate 50th anniversary with a special performance
(5 Jan 2017) THE DOORS CELEBRATE 50TH ANNIVERSARY WITH SPECIAL PERFORMANCE Iconic 1960s rock band The Doors came together for a special honor and performance 50 years after releasing their self-titled debut album. Surviving members John Densmore and Robby Krieger joined hundreds of fans Wednesday (4 JAN. 2017) to celebrate January 4 being proclaimed "Day Of The Doors" in Los Angeles. The event took place in Los Angeles' Venice neighborhood, where the band was formed. "Well, it's 50 years of The Doors. We started right here in Venice and we're ending up right here in Venice too so it's all a cycle, you know?" said guitarist Robby Krieger. "The ocean is just right out there and that's where Jim got the idea to write the song 'Moonlight Drive.' So then we went to Hollywood and made it, but our roots are here," added drummer John Densmore. The group, known for hits such as "Light My Fire" and "Riders on the Storm," performed "L.A. Woman" for the crowd. Many fans waited hours in the rain to see the them. "Even though Robby and I sometimes haven't played for years, for me anyway, a couple bars and I'm back. When you do the songs for many, many years over a lifetime they're in your blood and it only takes a second to chase down the magic," said Densmore. Jim Morrison, the band's lead singer and songwriter, died in 1971 at age 27. "I have no idea," said Krieger of Morrison's reaction to the honor. "You know you cannot say what Jim would have done or said because he always would do something different, but I bet you he would've been here and he would've dug it and I think he would've been proud." "I'm sure Ray would've loved it. He was always working the band and this is great," Densmore said. In 2013, keyboardist Ray Manzarek died of bile duct cancer in Rosenheim, Germany. He was 74. As for inspiration, Krieger said he still looks to the oldies. "Well, I listen to '60s music a lot, you know. You know I always try to find something good in today's music and have been failing miserably lately … Yeah, there's always bright spots, but as far as being you know a whole era of music, I am waiting for the next one, something different," he said. While Densmore finds his close to home. "I don't have my finger on the pulse of music. I read a lot and what really inspires me are my grandkids," he said.

Queen Elizabeth II has puppy playtime at dog charity
(30 Nov 2017) Britain's Queen Elizabeth II went crazy for canines on Thursday, making a flurry of four-legged friends in West Sussex. The Queen was visiting Canine Partners in Heyshott, near Midhurst - a charity that trains dogs to assist people with physical disabilities. A number of dogs were lucky enough to meet the Queen, including a black labrador puppy named Flint, and Yarna, another black lab who tried to present Her Majesty with a bouquet of flowers, but dropped them at zero hour. The royal visit was arranged to celebrate the charity having 400 dogs helping disabled owners across the UK. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News se You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/e3eb8adffbb35d6d9dc7321d5f44ffbd Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Leslie Jones, Cardi B among front row at Christian Siriano’s 'psychedelic dream garden'
(10 Sep 2017) LESLIE JONES, CARDI B AMONG FRONT ROW AT CHRISTIAN SIRIANO'S 'PSYCHEDELIC DREAM GARDEN' "Work it!" shouted actress Leslie Jones from her front-row seat, as a model strutted by in a revealing number. "I want that!" she called out after inspecting another seductive garment. For a fashion show, it was an infectious and joyful atmosphere, enhanced by the obvious commitment to diversity of all types on the runway: size, color and gender. Christian Siriano offered what he called a "psychedelic dream garden" of designs, and a diverse runway in terms of size and gender. "So I'm kind of bringing everyone into a little bit of a dream. I'm calling it my psychedelic dream garden. So it's kind of like, I think it was more about that I was kind of like having this idea that I was, I don't know, seeing plants come to life in a way. But I really just wanted it to be kind of romantic and beautiful and it's quite bold, very colorful," he said. The crowd seemed to respond. Siriano's colors included a bright sunflower, an even brighter grass green, and, brighter still, hibiscus pink - otherwise known as shocking pink - in a column dress and in a one-shouldered, ruffled jumpsuit. Jones, a big fan of the designer ever since he stepped up to dress her for the "Ghostbusters" premiere last year, gushed about him before the show. "You know what I'm saying? He so normal. He's so down to earth and he does love all women. That's what I love about him. He loves all women," said Jones. The actress was proud to share that she had just celebrated her 50th birthday. "Yes! I just turned 50!" she said, adding that she'd never hide her age. "No! Why would I do that? No, I need everybody to know that when you get to this age it doesn't have to be a death sentence," she said with a laugh. Also sitting in the front row were actresses Gina Gershon, Vanessa Williams and Patricia Clarkson. "He's a beautiful man. He's truly a great spirit and he loves women. He has a true, genuine love of women. Not of particular women. Of all women - all ages, sizes, shapes, color. He's the real thing," said Clarkson. Rapper Cardi B, whom Siriano dressed for the VMA Awards, is also a huge fan. "I feel like crying for him because I know he's so happy and he such a good, genuine person. He took his time for my VMA outfits and I got like almost in every press like best dressed and I'm so happy that this is happening to him, for him," she said. Williams was thrilled to watch Siriano's success over the years. "I've known Christian since he won 'Project Runway.' He got a chance to do 'Ugly Betty' like 10 years ago. So I met him when he was just starting out and to watch his, it's not even a meteoric rise because it's been slow and steady and phenomenal and growing," she said. Ruffles were huge - metaphorically and literally. A few models chose to emphasize the flounce by stopping mid-runway and cavorting a bit before continuing their walks. They included supermodel Coco Rocha, who opened the show in electric floral brocade, and closed it in a black orchid flounce gown.

'Stranger Things' stars share the highs and lows of working with kids
(10 Aug 2017) 'STRANGER THINGS' STARS SHARE THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF WORKING WITH KIDS From spontaneity to flatulence, the stars of Netflix's "Stranger Things" say the show's young cast brings so much to set. "They smell. And the farting," explained David Harbour. "Yes, oh god yes. Oh god yes! The amount of takes ruined by the occasional body movement that they can't control. Come on, when you were a child, when you were teenager - I mean, the amount of things that are happening in your body that you just cannot control. You know we've all been through it! That's very challenging." Those awkward teen years can also create awkward moments while shooting. "I mean they're kind of great, but they're kind of like teenagers and it's such an awkward time. And even though they're big shot movie stars, they're still teenagers so, like, they don't know anything about girls and they kind of come to me and they want to ask questions and I'm like, 'I have to go.' Like, this doesn't happen to me when I work with other people. And, like, it's just a very vulnerable time. So it's got the beauty of like their pure huggability and then it's got this complexity of, like, you guys got to go through the teenage years, which was so hard on all of us." Harbour says he's quite protective of the hit show's young stars, who include Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown. "I have to say with all this attention they've gotten, all this fame that they've got, I worry for them like as a fellow actor because I want them to preserve the fact that they're just weird, misfit kids who can bring that to the screen. And I also want them to develop as artists. So I'm very protective of them in a strange way because as everyone else sort of kowtows and is so excited by them, I'm the one going on set and being like, 'No, let's grow. Let's develop further. Like, it was good, but let's get it better.'" His ultimate goal is to push them to be the best. "I'm sort of like a bit of a taskmaster with them and I think that, you know, I think that they appreciate it because I think they have a lot of people telling them that, you know, their whatever doesn't stink. And I think that they need those voices that are a bit harder on them. So I like being in that position where I can be... I like trying to take a position of kind of mentoring them and trying to be like, 'Look, I want you guys when I'm in the nursing home, I want you to bring me your Oscars so I can look at them. I want you to develop into Meryl Streep and to Daniel Day-Lewis. I don't want you to become someone who flashes out. I want you to become artists.' So, you know, I think ultimately they appreciate that," Harbour said. The greatest lesson co-star Joe Keery has learned is to be present in the moment. "Just to get out of your goddamn head," he said. "I feel like so many people, you know, are doing the work on set. I think a lot of the work that you should do is kind of beforehand and then these kids - they're on set, hanging out, talking two seconds before the take, talking about some fart joke and then they're going and all of a sudden, it's like, the stakes are high. It's just, like, refreshing to have such energy and just fun. They're having so much fun." "Stranger Things" is set to return to Netflix on Oct. 31.

Mosul residents start clean-up after IS
(30 Jan 2017) Residents of eastern Mosul have started to clean up their city after two and a half years of rule by Islamic State militants and the battle that dislodged them. Students are painting over the extremists' murals and men are filling in bomb craters and clearing away the rubble of the nearly three-month-long battle that left Iraqi forces in control of half the city. Shops are also reopening. Iraqi forces have already started redeploying their forces in preparation for the battle to take the western side of the city as well, which is expected to start in the coming weeks. Mosul is the last urban stronghold of IS.

Quentin Tarantino walks Tribeca red carpet for 25th anniversary of 'Reservoir Dogs'
(29 Apr 2017) QUENTIN TARANTINO WALKS TRIBECA RED CARPET FOR THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF 'RESERVOIR DOGS' From the moment it was released in 1992, the gritty, violent and funny "Reservoir Dogs" became a cult hit, making the career of its then rookie director, Quentin Tarantino. Part of its uniqueness was the color aliases of each character - and as he walked the red carpet Friday ( 28 APRIL) for its 25th anniversary screening at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York., Tarantino explained why. "I was trying to come up with something that was like, tough guy, existential, deadpan, comedic, you know. And to me the idea of Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr., you know, Mr. Blonde, which I thought was kind of clever. I thought that was really interesting. It fed into the tough guy, existential, almost French noir kind of aesthetic of the movie." The film has gone on to become a classic,thanks to its non-linear storytelling and fresh use of dialogue. One of the most talked about scenes happens during the film's cold opening, which takes place in a diner, and includes a rant on tipping the waitress. Tarantino never doubted the scene was perfect for the film. "Well, I never really though of it as a chance. I liked the scene. I though the dialogue was really good. I thought it was funny, you know. I didn't think that was chancy. Most of the people that responded to the script, one of the things they responded was that opening scene," Tarantino said. It was in that scene that Tarantino gave his theory on what Madonna's "Like a Virgin" was really about. That set him on a path to appear in the films that he writes and directs. "Well, it was actually Harvey's urging, because he basically thought I did the Madonna speech better than anybody we auditioned, you know. I had done it for him a few times, and he thought I did it better than anybody else, so he thought I should be in the film," the filmmaker explained. Harvey Weinstein's Miramax Films produced "Reservoir Dogs." But it was another Harvey that anchored the cast. That's Harvey Keitel, and he starred as Mr. White. Keitel describes the magic that compelled him to appear in the film: "Well, the first thing I saw of his was his writing. I didn't see him in person, but he certainly transformed whatever it was he was thinking about, artistically, onto the page. It was a very special screenplay." The violent crime thriller depicts the proceedings before and after a failed jewelry store heist. The story is intensified when the gang feels there's an undercover cop amongst them. For Steve Buscemi, the role of Mr. Pink made him a star, and he feels a debt of gratitude to Tarantino. "Look, it was a special time in my life. I loved making the film. I'm so grateful for what the film did for me as an actor. But more than that, I'm just really proud to, you know, to be part of a work that people really seem to respond to," Buscemi said. The film also stars Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, and the late Chris Penn and Lawrence Tierney. Tarantino and the cast held a panel after the screening, discussing the film. The director went on to be one of the most famous faces in Hollywood, producing hits such as "Kill Bill", along with "Pulp Fiction" and "Django Unchained."

Migrants deported from US arrive in Mexico
(23 Feb 2017) A handful of Mexican migrants deported from the United States arrived at Mexico City's airport Wednesday. Mexican government officials spoke to each returning migrant to provide information as to their rights and who to contact for further information. Lucio Cervantes Campos, a Mexican who had lived illegally in the United States for 25 years, told the Associated Press he had gone to pay a ticket in Portland, Oregon when he was arrested upon leaving the courthouse. "They were waiting for me outside," he said of the US authorities who arrested him. President Donald Trump's efforts to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living illegally in the U.S. have spread fear and anxiety and led many people to brace for arrest and to change up their daily routines in hopes of not getting caught. The unease among immigrants has been building but intensified in recent weeks with ever-clearer signs that the Trump administration would jettison the Obama-era policy of focusing mostly on deporting those who had committed serious crimes. The administration announced Tuesday that any immigrant in the country illegally who is charged with or convicted of any offence, or even suspected of a crime, will now be an enforcement priority. That could include people arrested for shoplifting or other minor offences, or those who simply crossed the border illegally.

Harrison Ford praises director Ridley Scott as famed British director gets handprints in cement outs
(18 May 2017) HARRISON FORD PRAISES RIDLEY SCOTT AT HANDPRINT CEREMONY Harrison Ford praised his "Blade Runner" director Ridley Scott on Wednesday (17 May) in Los Angeles as the famed British director got his hand- and footprints in cement in a ceremony outside the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Ford worked with Scott on the 1982 "Blade Runner" and appears in its sequel, coming out in October, which Scott executive produced. "He has an artist's eye, an artist's heart, but he is a practical man. He understands that for all the art that may be committed, you still have to put asses in seats. And he has done that and done that well," Ford said. The 79-year-old British director was joined by his wife Giannina Facio, producer-director Ron Howard and the cast of his newest movie, "Alien: Covenant." He said he lived near the famed theatre for a time when he was starting out in Hollywood. "I used to walk down here to a little café on the corner here, run by two little ladies that made great breakfast. But I walked past here every day and I always used to walk around in here and I never ever could have dreamed this -- what's happening right now. So this is beyond an honor. It's a dream," Scott said. "And never a dream, because a dream means I expected it, and I never expected this. It's a rare honor to be alongside such great talent. And I see that Harrison was here in 1992, so I'm really jealous. How did you get? I can see Harrison's eyes rolling, so I can feel a Bloody Mary coming on. Thank you TCL Chinese Theatre, my wife and my little dog who put up with me."

21 years of life in a mountain wilderness
(8 Feb 2017) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4078899 LEAD IN: Many dream of leaving the city for a more simple life in the country. But how about going to live in the wilderness 4000 feet up a mountain? A Bosnian couple are celebrating their 21st year doing just that. STORY-LINE: Their home most certainly has a view. Ramiz Palos and his wife Zemina fled the hardships of urban life in Bosnia as soon as the country had emerged from a 4-year-war two decades ago. They choose to live on Mount Vlasic in central Bosnia at 1,300 meters above sea level, separated by kilometres of dirt road from the nearest inhabited place. Palos says he is not a recluse and was not looking for an escape from traumatic memories. Instead, he says, he wanted to take control of his life. After 21 years of primal existence in the wilderness Palos feels in control and happy, insisting he would never return to "civilisation". "I had several reasons to move here. I came here to secure means for existence, but also to live an exciting life, to not have a boring life," he says. Life in the wilderness has many challenges, but Palos insists embracing it was easier and more productive than if he had waited for the government to create a job for him. "People here (in Bosnia) are too willing to surrender responsibility for their own life to somebody else, they are not thinking. People need to think to come up with ways to find work for themselves. I don't have to worry about the work of the government or anyone else," he says. While he sometimes has to fight off bears and wolves and to endure pouring rains, winter storms and strong winds, Palos has an abundance of food, fresh air and a warm home. "You need to know how to behave (in nature) because we get heavy rains, winter storms and strong winds. You need to know how to behave in such circumstances," he says. "Sometimes it gets so cold that I cannot leave home for two months, but I have enough food and everything else I need so it does not matter. Winter comes and goes." With an unemployment rate of close to 30 percent, finding a job in Bosnia can be hard and close to a fifth of the country's population lives in poverty. The country is failing to fully capitalise on the good climatic conditions and an abundance of fertile land that make it one of the most favourable spots for farming in southern Europe. But Aleksandra Nikolic from the Sarajevo Faculty of Agriculture and Food Science believes that a growing number of Bosnians are recognising the advantages of rural life. "Agriculture is a way of life; it is no longer identified with the image of an exhausted man farming a rough patch of land in the middle of nowhere with the help of emaciated farming animals," she says. "Agriculture is a sector of economy that helps people in local communities to weather the periods of financial, economic, political or any other crisis by securing a source of income that helps them get through hard times." Palos might be the best example of that. When he first moved into the mountains in 1996 he lived in an old van and then in a makeshift tent. But after just a few months, he had built a simple house for himself and was joined by his wife. They still live in the house with no running water and off the electricity grid. But they grow their own vegetables and corn, raise goats and farm fish in the wild mountain river. Palos used local wood and stone to build his barn, hatching tanks and the watermill where he grinds his corn. From time to time, Palos ventures into the nearest town to sell extra produce to urban dwellers and purchase essential supplies that he and his wife cannot produce for themselves.

A Look at How CAR-T Cell Therapy Works
(30 Aug 2017) The immune system defends the body against disease. T-cells are one of its key soldiers, targeting infected or abnormal cells but cancer can block those defenses. Now scientists are genetically modifying patients own cells to make them smarter and tougher at seeking out and destroying cancer. One version is called CAR-T cell therapy, T-cells customized to zero in on a patients specific kind of cancer. It all starts when a patient's blood is filtered through a machine that separates T-cells and other white blood cells from the rest. Scientists mix the collected T-cells with a virus which is disabled, so it won't cause illness. Instead that virus carries genetic instructions for the T-cells to grow an artificial receptor, called a "chimeric antigen receptor", or CAR that will track its cancer target and rev up for an attack. Millions of copies of the engineered cell are grown in a laboratory, and given back to the patient intravenously. The first CAR-T cells are being tested against types of leukemia and lymphoma that bare a marker or antigen named CD19. Once in the blood stream those home in on that antigen and grab hold they release toxic chemicals that trigger a cells death. As one cancer cell dies, CAR-T cells move on to the next multiplying in the blood, until they are no longer needed.

Parkinson's disease - a journey through a brain
(11 Apr 2017) LEADIN: A drug treatment for Parkinson's is still wishful thinking, but doctors are becoming more adept at understanding and treating symptoms of the disease. Now as researchers mark the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Parkinson's, they're focusing efforts on discovering how to stop the disease progressing before before patients experience its distressing symptoms. STORYLINE: To find out how a disease progresses and inflicts increasing damage on our bodies the pathologists need to examine what has happened after a patient has died. This brain is of an elderly man who suffered strokes as well as being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Despite huge strides in being able to diagnose and understand what kind of a disease Parkinson's is, doctors still struggle to treat all its symptoms, let alone find a cure The disease damages the brain creating tremors in some people, muscle stiffness, an inability to move, memory damage, anxiety and depression. Research charity Parkinson's UK has helped to fund research here at the Parkinson's Brain Bank at Imperial College London. Gentleman begins his investigation with what he calls a macroscopic inspection of the brain, to see by eye whether the disease has created any obvious changes. A softening of the surface could be due to stroke prior to death, sometimes even the cause of death, the transparency of the membrane covering the brain confirms no sign of infection like meningitis. Pathologists like Gentleman also look at the patterns of the folds of the brain for evidence of shrinkage. Gentleman looks at the blood vessels supplying the brain because that will give him an idea of the man's vascular health during his lifetime. There is a sign of atherosclerosis, where the vessels are yellowed and hardened by a build up plaque, but in this case it is not serious. Gentleman explains that he is sectioning the brain to find the different stages of the disease: "Parkinson's disease pathology, which often starts off as a motor problem, the longer you live the more likely you are to get more cognitive problems, more decision making etcetera, so we have six areas of the brain that we know there'll be a fairly stereotypical spread of pathology over time." The first major cut is to separate the brain stem from the cerebellum this should reveal whether the patient was correctly diagnosed with Parkinson's. Parkinson's is a degenerative progressive disorder which means it gets worse over time. It affects affects nerve cells deep in areas of the brain called the basal ganglia and the substantia nigra. Nerve cells in the substantia nigra in the mid brain produce the neurotransmitter called dopamine, this is responsible for relaying messages that plan and control body movement. As Parkinson's UK's deputy director of research Professor David Dextor explains: "These neurons neurons start to die in Parkinson's and it's unfortunate you only see the symptoms when you've lost about eighty per cent of them. So quite a lot of damage within the brain has happened by the time you're seeing symptoms, but the symptoms of Parkinson's are not all just about motor control. There are the non-motor features, there's a high instance of depression, a decline in cognitive function as well, so it is a very complex disease which affects quite a lot of different neuronal pathways." It's the bicentenary of the discovery of Parkinson's disease. Dextor and fellow researchers are keen to translate what they know about it into a treatment which is able to stop it. Progressive layers are deposited throughout our lives and the older you get the darker it should be. From the brain stem Gentleman detects the patients experienced a three year course of Parkinson's.

Historic Portuguese mansion an oasis of calm in colourful India
(16 Jul 2017) LEADIN A 425 year old Portuguese mansion in India has opened its door to visitors to offer a glimpse of its colonial history. The much-loved home of Goa's Figeuiredo family is not only a repository of memories but a treasure trove of antique furniture and precious artifacts dating back to 17th century. The Figueiredo mansion is now part museum and part homestay and the family hopes to keep its legacy alive in the years to come. STORYLINE Unlike the Goa of popular imagination - of sandy beaches and liquor shacks - Loutolim in South Goa is a quaint village surrounded by paddy fields. Goa was a Potuguese colony until 1961 and a part of that history is visible in the Indo-European architecture of the village homes and mansions. This is where the Figueiredo family made its home in 1590. A second part of the house was constructed 200 years later. Age sits lightly on the sprawling, 4-centuries-old Figueiredo Mansion. It has been lovingly preserved by the family, whose members were Portuguese diplomats, lawyers and parliamentarians. About an hour's drive from Goa's airport, a rundown, roadside sign reads "Casa Museu V.J. De Figueiredo Loutolim" to let visitors know they've reached their destination. A musty smell of history, memories and magnificent wooden furniture pervades the arcaded corridors with rooms on both sides. Three generations of the Figueiredo family live in the house, each with their own connection to the priceless legacy. Maria de Fatima Figueiredo de Alburquerque, known as Fatima, was born in this house but grew up in Portugal. Two years ago, she left her job as an international executive and came back to Goa to help her mother - the current owner - take care of the house. One wing of the house with rooms full of elaborate carved furniture, Belgian crystal chandeliers, Chinese porcelain pieces, art and family heirlooms has been turned into a museum. Every artifact in the mansion has its own story, and Fatima's narrative helps in bringing some of that composite culture alive for the guests. "This is the ballroom and all the furniture is made in Goa, by Goans, and by Hindus, Muslims and Catholics. And normally the Hindus they used to put something of their God or Goddesses or their mythology and here we see that this for sure is made by Hindus," Fatima says as she points to the figure of a Hindu God carved in the wooden chair. The family prayer room is dedicated to the mother of Virgin Mary. The 200 year old private chapel is paved with a mosaic of Portuguese tiles. Nearby is an antique chest of drawers made of ivory, metal, rosewood and teak with images of lions carved into the base. "This is the only one that exists with the four lions and also in this size. There are some around the world and there is one in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London but smaller than this one," she says. The elegant décor of the dining room is laid out on the expansive solid teak wood floor. Navigating through the lavish room, she points to another family treasure - a 200-year old, 60-piece crockery set made specially for the family by the East India Company. "This is unique in the world with this design and colours. And it is in the family more than 200 years," says Fatima. Her mother, 87-year old Maria de Lourdes Figueiredo de Albuquerque is the owner of the mansion and the guiding spirit behind the effort to preserve the family heritage. Maria grew up in the mansion along with her sister when the family was based in the west Indian state. She moved to Portugal as a young woman, where she witnessed the political turmoil that led to the end of the European country's 451-year colonial rule in Goa in 1961. Taking care of the stock of family possessions is a daunting task, says Fatima.

Orlando Bloom and Jerry Bruckheimer defend Johnny Depp at “Pirates” Hollywood premiere, young stars
(19 May 2017) BLOOM DEFENDS DEPP AT 'PIRATES' HOLLYWOOD PREMIERE Orlando Bloom defended Johnny Depp as "one of the most private and stand-up people I've ever met" as the fifth "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie held its Hollywood premiere on Thursday (18 May) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Depp has faced recent scrutiny for his messy divorce from actress Amber Heard and a lawsuit filed by his former business managers that claims he fell into financial trouble due to a lavish lifestyle that cost more than $2 million a month. "You know, listen – the man that I know and love is the man who is here tonight and is on form and does everything the right way," said Bloom, who starred in the first three "Pirates" movies with Depp. "People go through all kinds of weird stuff in the world. And it's just a shame that it has to be dragged out into the public. Because God knows he has been one of the most private and stand-up people I've ever met." "Pirates" franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer blamed the news media for Depp's troubles. "Oh, he's the best. And unfortunately the media kind of picks on certain people. And it was his turn in the barrel," Bruckheimer said. "But he's a fabulous guy and a great artist. And he's here and he's excited to be here for the premiere." The Captain Jack Sparrow actor signed autographs and posed for selfies with fans dressed like pirates on Hollywood Boulevard. "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" also stars Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario. Bloom's returning role as Will Turner in the new movie is small - and he acknowledged his fee for joining in hinged on showing up to the movie's premieres. "They kind of told me I had to. It was part of the deal. It was like 'Bro, we're going to pay you this. And you're going to do two days, but you're coming to every premiere that we do. OK?' I was like, 'OK!' So – but it was great, because to be honest, we shot this 2 and a half years ago. That was a time where I was having really precious moments with my son, didn't want to really leave him," Bloom said. "So when I was like, OK, I did shoot two scenes over three continents, and I was all over the place. But it's great, man. I mean, these movies – I had a nice emotional hook for my son, to send him off of the journey, and at the end I get to kiss Keira Knightley. It couldn't be worse, right? How bad could it get?" Spanish actor Javier Bardem plays a character new to the franchise, the undead Captain Armando Salazar. He remembers play-acting as a pirate as a child - along with being Darth Vader's spaceship. And now that he's in the Disney family, maybe there's another franchise in his sights. "Yeah, yeah – of course. I am a kid. I'm a boy. So I remember playing – I remember playing pirate, warriors, and also I remember playing spaceship – Darth Vader's spaceship. Not Darth Vader, but the spaceship. Which is very weird for a kid," Bardem said. "Yeah – the whole noise, and the whole thing. So I guess I'm trying to get into the 'Star Wars' franchise now. ... Yeah, I could do that. I know some people now." Brenton Thwaites plays the son of Orlando Bloom's character. He says he's not sure if "Pirates" could continue as a franchise without Depp at its center. "I mean, I think all of the fans including myself really want to see what Captain Jack Sparrow is up to you in the next movie. In this one, I think he is deeper, darker, funnier," Thwaites said. Both he and co-star Kaya Scodelario became parents in the time since filming ended and the movie premiered. "It's wonderful. It's amazing. We've spawned the next generation of little pirates. I hope in 13 years' time, they'll be taking the reins from us," Scodelario said.

Romanians, European royals pay respects at King Michael's funeral
(16 Dec 2017) ROMANIANS, EUROPEAN ROYALS PAY RESPECTS AT KING MICHAEL'S FUNERAL Tens of thousands of Romanians joined European royals on Saturday to pay their respects to late King Michael as a state funeral got underway. Michael, who ruled Romania twice before being forced to abdicate by the communists in 1947, died at age 96 in Switzerland this month. Britain's Prince Charles, Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, and Spain's former King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, were among those at a pre-funeral service at the Royal Palace where Michael's body had been laying in state for the past two days. Among non-European royals attending the funeral was Princess Muna al-Hussein, mother of King Abdullah II of Jordan. In the hours before the coffin was taken out of the palace, Romanians gathered silently, many in tears, in Revolution Square where Michael's coffin was laid on a dais outside the palace. Church bells tolled around the city intermittently to mark the solemnity of the moment and a choir of priests sang as his coffin was taken out. The crowd cheered and shouted "King Michael!" as the coffin, led by Orthodox priests and a guard of honour, was transported by an army jeep towards the cathedral where there the funeral will take place. His body will then be taken by royal train to the central Romanian city of Curtea de Arges where he will be buried next to his wife Anne de Bourbon-Parme who died last year.

English language could rival French in Algeria
(23 Jan 2017) LEADIN: English is starting to surpass French as the main foreign language in Algeria. Changing attitudes have contributed to the shift. STORY-LINE: The streets outside the University of Algiers are bustling. Traditionally this is a Francophone institution, where key subjects such as Law and Medicine are taught in French. Since the French colonisation of Algeria in the 19th Century, this has been a Francophone country. But this could soon change, as interest in the English language increases. The British Institute is a language college that caters to the increased demand for English lessons. It's a piece of the United Kingdom in the Algerian Capital, and is full of students eager to begin learning or improve their English. It has been open since 2012 and offers accredited Cambridge English language assessments. It is a "learning centre and it is also an organisation with a mission to promote expertise and excellence in teaching, learning, and assessment of the English language of the students," explains British Institute director Jalil Gosab. Tarik Touati is a teacher at the Institute. He has witnessed increasing interest in learning English. "We still consider that nowadays more and more students are getting involved, so they realise more that English is very important nowadays in terms of the work, the studies," he says. According to official statistics, only five percent of Algerians can speak English, while the number of French speakers is estimated to be around 30 percent. This may change for several reasons, one of them being that English is now taught in Algerian middle schools. Gosab believes English may overtake French. "Back then, like if you go back nine or ten years ago, there was a phobia of the English language here, especially by those Francophones. But now since English is spoken by a significant, well you like it or not, whether we like it or not, English is spoken by a significant number," he says. Hundreds of private English institutes are opening their doors across the country, and the change can be seen in the streets of Algiers, where many shops now have English names. Arabic and Tamazight are the two officially recognised languages of Algeria, and French is spoken in most of the big cities.

Luca Guadagnino, Armie Hammer premiere 'Call Me By Your Name' at Sundance
(23 Jan 2017) LUCA GUADAGNINO BRINGS LATEST FILM TO SUNDANCE Armie Hammer says he was so anxious to work with famed Italian director, Luca Guadagnino, that he would've been open for anything. "I would've done any script that he was doing just as a chance to work with him and I'm thrilled that I got a chance to," said Hammer at the premiere of "Call Me By Your Name" Sunday (22 JAN. 2017) at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie, adapted from a novel of the same name by Andre Aciman, stars Timothee Chalamet as a teen living in Italy in the 1980's who falls in love with an academic staying in his parent's villa. Hammer says while making the movie in Italy, he also learned that his director has a talent for cooking. "We got to live the Italian summer experience and get paid for it and do it with Luca Guadagnino and he would cook for us and oh my god, he's a better cook than he is a filmmaker. No, no, no. Like - like we spoke to several chefs in the little town that we were filming because we got to know everybody and all the great restaurants and all that and all of them would go, 'You guys know that you're dining with the greatest chef in Italy.' Next time you talk to him ask him about it. They say he's the greatest chef in Italy." Chalamet says being directed by Guadagnino, who has made movies like the cult hit "I Am Love" and "A Bigger Splash," is a film class in itself. "Luca is a genius, you know, like you talk to - it's cool to see people live and breathe film because you talk to other actors sometimes there's a certain, not necessarily terminology, but way of talking about things, you know, where you're all on the same level, you know? But then you talk to Luca about films and you're like, 'Oh, wow, that's... I have no idea what you're talking - I can't keep up with what you're saying,'" he recalls. "So when you're around these people that breathe what they do, you know - that was dramatic - but when they breathe what they do, yeah, like you said it's inspiring, you know, and Luca loves to make movies so it's great. I think he's one of the most talented filmmakers of our generation so, yeah, it was a dream to work with him." Guadagnino believes the film is a breakout role for Chalamet. "He's extraordinary. I mean it. He's extraordinary. You'll see. People will flip for him and in general the cast of this movie is fantastic, like Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar, Esther Garrel. They gave so much to this movie, such a complete generosity and you will see that on screen for sure." Guadagnino's next film is "Suspiria" starring Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz.

Massive solar tower plant built in the Negev Desert
(5 Jan 2017) LEAD IN: In sunny Israel, solar energy supplies just a small percentage of the nation's power needs, leaving it trailing far behind countries with cloudier and colder climates. Now it is trying to turn that around with a large-scale solar project that could mark a giant leap for the country's fledgling solar industry. STORY-LINE: Traditionally run on a fossil fuel-based economy, Israel has struggled to translate its sunny rays into cleaner power. But with the goal of generating 10 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020 and the addition of the solar mega-project, a future powered by renewable energy may lie ahead. The project, deep in the Negev desert, is made up of three plots, with a fourth planned for the future, each with a different solar technology. Together, the fields will be Israel's largest renewable energy project when completed by 2018. They are set to generate some 310 megawatts of power, enough for about 130,000 households, or roughly 5 percent of Israel's population, according to Israel's Electricity Authority. "It's the most significant single building block in Israel's commitment to CO2 reduction and renewable energy," says Eran Gartner, chief executive of Megalim Solar Power Ltd., which is building one part of the project. The centerpiece of his project is a solar tower, which will be the world's largest once it is complete at 250 meters (820 feet) tall and will serve as a symbol of Israel's lofty renewable energy goals. Encircling the tower are 50,000 mirrors, known as heliostats, rising from the dusty earth in a shimmering blanket of glass with a 1-square-kilometer (4 square miles) reflective surface stretched out over more than 3 square kilometers (1.2 square miles) of land. Gartner explains that the height of the tower is in direct proportion to the amount of land the state granted the project. To maximize the use of the land, the panels were squeezed together. The closer the panels, the taller the tower needs to be. Using solar-thermal technology, the panels beam sunlight onto a boiler on the top of the tower which heats water, creating steam that will then spin a turbine and generate electricity. There are a number of solar-thermal fields around the world, with the largest solar tower currently near Ivanpah, California, in the Mojave desert. That project, which is the largest solar-thermal field at 14 square kilometers (5.5 square miles), has about 170,000 heliostats with 140-meter-tall (460-foot) towers. Another solar-thermal plot at Ashalim will be able to store energy even when the sun goes down. A third plot will use photovoltaic solar technology to produce energy. Yaron Szilas, CEO of Shikun & Binui Renewable Energy, the lead developer of the second solar-thermal plot, says combining the three technologies in one project was a wise move by the government because each has its own advantage. He says that in terms of the amount of electricity that will be produced, the project measures up to other large-scale solar fields in California and Chile. Israel has developed some of the world's most advanced solar energy equipment and enjoys a nearly endless supply of sunshine, but when it comes to deploying large-scale solar technology at home, the country lags behind. Israeli solar companies, frustrated by government bureaucracy, have often taken their expertise abroad. Countries with cooler climates like Germany have outpaced Israel in renewable energy development. Germany for example gets nearly 30 percent of its energy from renewable sources. For Israel, that number currently stands at 2.5 percent. Gartner says that Israel has often been reluctant to hand out huge parcels of land, a necessity for producing solar power on a large scale.

Mattis hosts Saudi Crown Prince at Pentagon
(16 Mar 2017) US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis hosted and roundtable meeting at the Pentagon Thursday with Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince and Minister of Defense. The Pentagon visit followed a White House meeting between Prince Mohammad bin Salman and President Trump on Tuesday. In opening remarks before the meeting, Secretary Mattis said the U.S.-Saudi relationship "has held firm through good times and bad" over many decades. And he thanked the 31-year-old leader for his "vigorous leadership" and "willingness to broaden and deepen" Saudi Arabia's support for common efforts. For his part, the Crown Prince said his nation is "on the front line facing" very serious dangers in the region and the world. He listed Iran and extremist organizations as the top challenges Saudi Arabia faces but said his country is "very optimistic under the leadership of President Trump." During the White House meeting earlier in the week, Trump reportedly emphasized the need to normalize relations between the US and Saudi Arabia, which had soured in recent years over Saudi objections to the Iran nuclear deal, reached by the Obama administration.

Malaysia's Mahathir: opposition can win election
(18 Sep 2017) Former Malaysian strongman Mahathir Mohamad says he believes the opposition alliance in his country can win the next general elections and topple the country's corruption-tainted leader. The energetic 92-year-old, Asia's longest-serving leader before stepping down in 2003, has made a high-profile return to politics in a bid to oust his protege, Prime Minister Najib Razak. The serving leader has clung to power despite an epic corruption scandal that involved hundreds of millions of dollars passing through his bank accounts. Mahathir told The Associated Press in an interview that the disparate opposition coalition he has spearheaded to contest elections due by mid-2018 is tapping into anger at the corruption scandal and the rising cost of living. "Lots of people feel that Najib has destroyed much that has been built for this country," he said. Najib has sacked critics in his own government including an attorney-general and deputy prime minister and muzzled the media since the corruption scandal erupted two years ago. The US and several other countries are investigating allegations of cross-border embezzlement and money laundering at 1MDB, a state investment fund set up and previously led by Najib to promote economic development but which accumulated billions in debt. The US Justice Department says at least 4.5 billion US dollars was stolen from 1MDB by associates of Najib, and it is working to seize 1.7 billion US dollars taken from the fund to buy assets in the US potentially its largest asset seizure ever. Mahathir said he doesn't want to be prime minister again and that his aim is simply to topple Najib and restore Malaysia's reputation. Despite speculation that Najib may call elections this year, Mahathir said he believes polls will be held in 2018 because Najib wants time to strengthen his support in eastern Sabah and Sarawak states on the island of Borneo. The two states, both strongholds of rural Malay support for the governing National Front coalition, jointly contribute about a quarter of parliamentary seats and helped Najib win the 2013 polls despite losing the national popular vote to the opposition for the first time. Yet gerrymandering will make it tough to win more seats than the ruling coalition. The Election Commission last year redrew electoral boundaries that critics said created more Malay-majority seats to ensure victory for Najib though opposition parties are contesting it in court. Mahathir's comeback is a boost to the opposition that has been plagued by infighting. His popularity with ethnic Malays may also make the opposition more palatable to those voters, who are the bedrock of Najib's ruling coalition.

Rising stars introduced to Cannes at Face to Face with German Films
(25 May 2017) RISING STARS INTRODUCED TO CANNES AT FACE TO FACE WITH GERMAN FILMS Four of Germany's fastest rising stars were introduced at the Cannes Film Festival, as the Face to Face campaign continues to celebrate the successes of German film. "Homeland"s Alexander Fehling, "SS-GB"'s Ronald Zehrfeld, "Dark" star Louis Hofmann and Volker Bruch from "Babylon Berlin" posed for a photocall the day after the annual cocktail party thrown by German Films. The stars have some tips for fellow festival goers to stay fresh for the cameras the morning after the night before. "Put teabags on the eyes, drink lots of coffee and a lot of water," smiled Zehrfeld. The actors also suggested what "Toni Erdmann" director Maren Ade might be looking for, as she and the rest of the Jury consider this year's Palme d'Or contenders. German projects heading to the international stage that excite the group include Hoffman's supernatural family drama series "Dark" – the first German language Netflix original series. But the group have mixed expectations of the impact Brexit might have on pan-European film collaborations. "Makes me scared at the moment because of Brexit." says Zehrfeld. "The last year was very good due to companies working together, it was getting better and better and now it makes us scared, what will happen next. It's not so good for the film companies, that makes a lot of things much more difficult to push films, to pitch topics and knock on wood Please, the old way please." "No, I don't think that will in any way stop the collaboration, neither Brexit nor Trump, I think," insists Hofmann. "Germany has just doubled their fund, their film fund, especially for big international productions. So that is all in the coming and it's raising the amount of international productions in Germany, the co-productions. And I think also the filmmakers in Europe – or probably all over the world – see the advantage of working together and putting together different aspects of film and different ways of seeing film, different ways of working and so I think it's going to raise." And while Hofmann is open to offers from Hollywood, should they come, Fehling will be staying put. "I don't want to live in LA," he states. "It's totally fine to be in LA for a couple of weeks but – have you ever been to Berlin? Berlin is really the place to be at the moment, so I don't have any reason to be anywhere else." Face to Face with German Films is also spotlighting actors Jannis Niewöhner and Tom Schilling.

Egyptian designer builds his own car
(24 Nov 2017) EGYPT CAR DESIGNER SOURCE: ASSOCIATED PRESS RESTRICTIONS: AP CLIENTS ONLY LENGTH: 3:50 ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Cairo - 19 October 2017 1. Wide of car designer Amr Zahran entering the car he designed 2. Various of the car 3. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Amr Zahran, car designer: "I have drawn cars since I was a child and it was my passion. When I was in college we travelled to Germany on a university trip and we went to Munich and saw the manufacture of cars and watched the way they sculpt cars and since then I started thinking about how to design a car in Egypt. I proposed the idea to my professor because I wanted to make it my graduation project but he told me that this can't be done because it needs too much time and after graduation I thought about going to the governmental side, which was the industrial development authority. I proposed my idea but it was rejected. Then in 2012 I decided that I will design the car anyway and I bought a car, started cutting it and sculpted the car's body from the beginning." 4. Various of Zahran's car 5. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Amr Zahran, car designer: "Of course it has cost a lot and many people thought that this can't be done in Egypt. They believed that we don't have the tools or the proper industry and even the country economically is not ready for this. All of this made me more determined and I insisted on working on my car regardless of the obstacles and during the years, I worked for 10 months saving my income and worked on the car for the last two months." 6. Various of Zahran driving 7. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Amr Zahran, car designer: "The first auto show I participated in was the Egyptian annual auto show of Automech Formula in 2013 and I came in second place. In 2014 I got first place with the design of a bus, I came first place again in 2016 with the design of a smart car and finally in 2017 I was able to implement the design of this car and I participated with it and won the first place for the third time which makes me the best car designer in Egypt." 8. Various of Zahran working on his designs in his house 9. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Amr Zahran, car designer: "In order to ship the car and participate in international auto shows like the Geneva International Motor Show, my car needs to be licensed and needs a direct intervention from the Minister of Industry or President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi so that I will be able to ship the car abroad and represent Egypt in the international auto shows." 10. Mid of Zahran's car LEADIN: An Egyptian car designer has built his own vehicle despite having zero government or industry backing. Amr Zahran's creation has cost him half a million Egyptian pounds - but he now claims to be the best car designer in the country. STORYLINE: Amr Zahran climbs inside his pride and joy - and takes it for spin. This is a car any petrol-head would want to drive. But it is extra special to Zahran. He designed it himself. It is the culmination of a life-long dream and one he has achieved against the odds. He wanted to build it for his university graduation project but was told it would take too much time. "After graduation I thought about going to the governmental side, which was the industrial development authority. I proposed my idea but it was rejected," he says. "Then in 2012 I decided that I will design the car anyway and I bought a car, started cutting it and sculpted the car's body from the beginning." But custom-building a car does not come cheap. Without any government or industry funding, he has spent around 500,000 Egyptian pounds (more than 28,000 US dollars) of his own money. "Of course it has cost a lot and many people thought that this can't be done in Egypt," Zahran says.

Activist and former IS hostage, Nadia Murad, visits Yazidi camp
(4 Jun 2017) LEADIN: A Yazidi UN Goodwill Ambassador and former IS hostage has visited an IDP camp in Iraq. Many of Nadia Murad's relatives are still missing and she says it is "very difficult" to save those captured by the militants. STORYLINE: Nadia Murad stops to talk to some women at Qadia camp in Iraq. At one time, it must have seemed like she might never have a simple conversation like this again. Along with thousands of other Yazidi women and girls, Murad was taken hostage by Islamic State militants in August 2014 when the extremist group took control of their areas. After being held as a sex slave and subjected to horrific abuse, Murad managed to escape in November 2014. Five of her eight brothers are missing, presumed dead. One of her sisters is still missing too. And recent victories by Iraqi forces against IS in Mosul have not brought the good news she had hoped for. "I had believed that with the liberation of Mosul the majority of the Yazidi captives, over 3,000 women and children, would be found because all the phone calls, all the information had indicated that that is where they were," she says. "Even my own family, my niece called us from there just 10 months ago. But now we don't know anything about her. And now all those who have been freed in Mosul, they're no more than 75 people." She hopes survivors will be found as IS is pushed out of its last strongholds. But she says it is "very difficult" to save them as ransoms are so high. After escaping IS, Murad resettled in Germany and in 2016 she was named UN Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking. Her return to Iraq is an opportunity to visit fellow Yazidis at this camp - Murad is now an activist for Yazidi rights. She spends some time with her brother and sister who live here. Thousands of Yazidi men were systematically killed in what several international groups have branded as genocide. Murad's home village of Kocho is where the worst of the massacres took place. It has recently been retaken by pro-government militias so Murad has had the chance to go back to the family home and search for mementos of her loved ones - including her mother who was killed by IS. "I couldn't find anything that belonged to my brothers but I found a jacket that used to be Katherine's (niece), and this shirt belonged to Nasrine, another niece whose fate we know nothing about. And from all my life and memories in the house that I lived in I couldn't find anything except this comb," she says. Thousands of Yazidis continue to live in camps across northern Iraq because many of their areas are still under IS control, close to active frontlines or lack basic services. Yazidis are a mostly Kurdish-speaking religious minority group living in northern Iraq whom IS has vowed to exterminate because they consider them infidels.

Laughter erupts at hearing for Trump Health Sec.
(24 Jan 2017) Laughter erupted during a tense Senate confirmation hearing when Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, asked President Donald Trump's health nominee if it's true that the new administration is close to having a final health care plan - as Trump himself has hinted. "It's true that he said that, yes," responded Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., who's been picked by Trump to run the Health and Human Services department. Trump and congressional Republicans have committed to repealing and replacing President Barack Obama's signature health care law, but they haven't provided details on how that can be done without harming millions who've gained coverage. Price said he has had conversations with Trump about health care policy. And Brown didn't press him for more details. Price says science shows that vaccines do not cause autism. That's a position that goes against views espoused by President Donald Trump, who has voiced scepticism about vaccine safety. Price disputed claims that abortion leads to breast cancer. He said the science is relatively clear that it does not. Price is also adamant that the new administration will protect people with pre-existing medical problems even as it moves to repeal the Obama-era law prohibiting insurance discrimination. Georgia Rep. Tom Price told the Senate Finance Committee that "we need to make sure nobody loses their insurance or is unable to gain insurance because of pre-existing conditions."

The event took place overlooking a sensitive holy site in Jerusalem, revered by Jews as the location where the biblical Temples once stood. The ceremony is said to have traditionally been held at the biblical Temples. The lamb would be sacrificed to mark the Passover holiday, which begins on Friday. Participants at Thursday's event hope the ceremony will soon be held in the rebuilt Jewish Temples, which is now the site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third-holiest site in Islam. Under a decades-old arrangement, Jews are allowed to visit the site, but not pray there. Religious Jews pray that a third temple will be built on the site and maintain the tradition as practice for when the time comes to build a new temple. Jewish activist groups in recent years said Jews should instead focus on pushing for prayer at the contested hilltop compound itself. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Brazil deploys army to Rio favela in effort to quell violence
(23 Sep 2017) Soldiers kept patrolling the Rocinha slum in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday where new shootouts erupted early in the morning. The government deployed the Brazilian army in Rio's largest slum on Friday afternoon after the violence forced authorities to shut roads, close schools and health units and isolate the area for a few hours. The defence ministry said as many as 950 troops were deployed around the perimeter of Rocinha, where some of the most intense battles took place. The troops would provide backup so that military police, including elite squads of commandos, could go after traffickers in the hills that make up the sprawling community in the city's south, defense ministry spokesman Raul Jungmann said. The operation comes just as the city is hosting the Rock in Rio festival, featuring concerts by groups such as Bon Jovi, Guns N' Roses and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Military police, tasked with patrolling and going after suspects, had been doing operations in Rocinha since Monday. The intensity of the firefights - gunshots are often heard in Rio - increased on Friday and erupted in other neighbourhoods, including Alemao, Dona Marta, Vila Kennedy and Chapeu Mangueira. Several gangs are fighting for predominance in Rocinha and violence also is fed by armed militias of former police and military personnel that sometimes take security into their own hands. About 8,500 troops were deployed in August to try to curb rising violence a year after Rio hosted the Summer Olympics. However, the troops have mostly been patrolling, not engaging with traffickers.

Libya sends more than 150 migrants back to Mali
(29 Dec 2016) Dozens of Malian migrants queued outside the departure hall of Tripoli's Maetiga airport on Thursday ahead of their deportation from Libya. The Libyan Department of Anti-Illegal Immigration, with the help of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), is sending home 157 Malian migrants due to overcrowding at Libya's detention centres. There are more plans to deport more migrants in the near future, especially now that African embassies in Tripoli are starting to cooperate with the immigration department. Libyan detention centres currently house migrants from across the continent - most notably Mali, Nigeria, Niger, Gambia and Somalia. The migrant crisis began to escalate dangerously in 2015 when high numbers of unauthorised foreign nationals attempted to travel to the European Union. According to the United Nations, the most dangerous migration route is from Libya to Italy, where the UN estimates one in every 47 refugees dies. The UN recently reported that migrants in Libya are subject to serious human rights violations and abuses.

Western forces aid Iraq push on Tal Afar
(20 Aug 2017) US-backed Iraqi forces on Sunday launched a multi-pronged assault to retake the town of Tal Afar, west of Mosul, marking the next phase in the country's war on the Islamic State group (IS). About 30 kilometres (18.5 miles) east of Tal Afar, Belgian special forces and American troops set up position on the roof of a house as Iraqi forces attempted to clear the villages of Tuaym and Mjarin two kilometres (1.2 miles) ahead of them. The coalition soldiers assisted the Iraqis with mortar strikes and intelligence gathered through their drones. They were also at the ready with guided missiles should the Iraqis come under attack by suicide vehicles. Tal Afar and the surrounding area is one of the last pockets of IS-held territory in Iraq after victory was declared in July in Mosul, the country's second-largest city. The town, about 150 kilometres (93 miles) east of the Syrian border, sits along a major road that was once a key IS supply route.

A tour of Thomas Keller's $10 million French Laundry remodel
(22 Mar 2017) A TOUR OF THOMAS KELLER'S $10 MILLION FRENCH LAUNDRY REMODEL On a sunny morning in Napa Valley, America's most celebrated chef is reflecting on his career and the culinary empire that it spawned. Someday, he says, the dream is to return full-time to the place it all started, an old stone cottage known as the French Laundry. At 61 years old, Thomas Keller entertains the thought of slowing down. Just not right now. He's got new restaurant projects underway in Miami and at New York City's Hudson Yards. He recently flew to Hollywood for a segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live. And he's happily nearing completion of a $10 million renovation at the French Laundry, the fine dining mecca he opened in 1994 that's still booked solid a month in advance. Keller says he remade the restaurant to ensure it thrives for the next 20 years. Most of the changes are behind-the-scenes. There's a state-of-the-art 2,000-square-foot kitchen that reopened last month, a 16,000-bottle wine cellar, extensive solar paneling, a new office annex and 9,000 square feet of new landscape design. The renovation took more than two years and was not stress-free. "For weeks, I would wake up in the middle of the night and think, "Oh my God, I ruined the French Laundry," said Keller, who holds three coveted Michelin stars for the restaurant, and another three for its New York counterpart Per Se, which he opened in 2004. Keller is the only American chef, past or present, with two sets of three-star Michelin restaurants. The French Laundry has twice topped the influential World's 50 Best Restaurants list, also unprecedented for an American chef. On a tour of the new kitchen and the French Laundry's lush culinary garden, Keller is vocally enthusiastic about the upgrades. He is also gracious, and humble, when asked about his significance to the culinary world. "I don't wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and go, 'I'm looking at the greatest chef in America.' It very seldom comes up for me personally," he says. But when the issue is raised, he feels "an enormous amount of responsibility, that burden of responsibility on my shoulders to make sure that I'm trying to exemplify what that chef would be like." Keller is clearly mindful of his legacy, which is part of the inspiration for the French Laundry's remodel. As a measure of his ambition, Keller compares it to the renovation at one of the world's great museums, the Louvre, and how I.M. Pei's 1989 addition of the glass pyramid added an element of timeless modernity to a historical site. The Louvre was "iconic. It was historic. Everybody knew it. And the French Laundry kind of represented that for me," said Keller, who even presented his architect with two pictures of the museum _ one pre-I.M. Pei and one after _ to capture the essence of his vision. Keller teamed up with Snohetta, an architecture and design firm that spearheaded the recent three-year renovation of another museum, San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art. The restaurant stayed open during the construction, but the culinary staff relocated to a temporary kitchen built inside four shipping containers. Final touches on landscaping are wrapping up this summer. "To actually stand in the new kitchen is the ultimate reward. It's absolutely amazing," says 36-year-old chef de cuisine David Breeden. The countertops were raised several inches from the standard height to avoid backaches. There's a "ventilated ceiling" that does away with the typical noisy overhead hoods. Now they're embedded in the ceiling with infared censors that gauge the appropriate speed, rather than whirring at high all day long. The attention to detail is typical of Keller, says Breeden, who has worked for him at the French Laundry and Per Se for 12 years.

William and Kate arrive for Royal Variety Performance
(24 Nov 2017) The security alert at Oxford Circus did not keep Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from attending the Royal Variety Performance at the nearby London Palladium on Friday. Prince William and his pregnant wife, Kate, did arrive later than had been planned, but managed to take to their seats by the start of the star-studded gala event.

3D printed gourmet chocolate
(30 May 2017) LEADIN: Producers in Belgium are increasingly switching to 3-D printers to make chocolate. They say its the only way to create shapes and small sculptures that are impossible to perfect by hand. STORYLINE A beer bottle, a bat and various other shapes lie created in chocolate in this laboratory in the Belgian town of Gembloux. They're the latest products from La Miam Factory, which uses 3-D printers to make perfect, mini chocolate sculptures. Gaetan Richard is Chief Technical Officer and Co-founder of the factory. He demonstrates the process by melting chocolate pellets, using the bain-marie technique, and pouring them into a syringe before attaching it to the 3-D printing machine. Then a drawing on a computer connected to the printer tells the machine which chocolate shape to make. Gaetan Richard is one of five engineers who founded La Miam Factory at the end of 2016. He says it's the first time Belgium has experienced the 3-D chocolate printing trend. "Here the interest is that with 3-D printing we can create forms that can't be made through moulding, because they bulge or have a hollow shape etc. 3-D chocolate printing is a new tool available to chocolate and pastry makers to create new forms, new things to better express their creativity." Belgian start-up La Miam is an off-shoot of the Smart Gastronomy Lab of the University of Liege, whose mission is to create prototypes for culinary trials and advancement. 3-D chocolate printing is bringing innovation to pastry chefs and allowing chocolatiers to be more inventive with their products. Christophe Druet is another co-founder of La Miam Factory. Holding a twisted, tree-shaped chunk of chocolate he says it's amazing what 3-D printers can now achieve: "Typically it's impossible to make this piece in any other way than with 3-D printing because it has bridges, it has a shape that a mould can't reproduce. So this piece has an extraordinary quality and the chocolate-maker who sees it says 'Wow, how did you make it?' We can see a very smooth surface, we can barely see the lines of the 3-D printing and this is just extraordinary." La Miam, French for "yummy", offers its services to two types of customers: companies looking for original and personalised chocolate logos and chocolate-makers who want to create unique 3-D chocolate pieces. Belgium is one of the world's chocolate capitals so it might seem surprising it's taken so long for the 3-D trend to arrive here. However Richard says La Miam's machines are unique, providing a particularly fine-grained chocolate sculpture: "The main feature that differentiates our prototypes from other (3-D) printed chocolates is the fineness of the printing. There are other printers, but I know that ours are able to overlay layers of 0.2 millimetre thickness. We can even reach 0.1 millimetres. It's clear that if we go from 0.2 to 0.1 millimetres we can double the production. But at 0.2 millimetres we reach a compromise and deliver a very nice final shape, very smooth, much smoother than what can be obtained with other printers that overlay much thicker layers and in their final product the strata are much more visible." La Miam has already produced pieces for five clients: they include 200 logos for Belgian chemical company Solvay, a series of Christmas trees for Belgian chocolate-maker Galler and chocolate beer bottles for Belgian brewery Bertinchamps. Since the printed chocolate products are hard to transport and may break when moved from one location to another, one of La Miam's future goals is to open workshops in different parts of the world. At his Brussels shop and cafe chocolatier Laurent Gerbaud is making chocolate pieces by hand and flavouring them with nuts and dry fruits.

Finns compete in annual hobby horse championship
(29 Apr 2017) Hobby horse enthusiasts from all over Finland gathered in Vantaa on Saturday for annual championships. This year's main event took place at a packed sports hall attracting an estimated 1,000 spectators to watch some 200 participants competing with their hobby horses in several sub-categories. Riders, almost all girls aged mostly between 10-18, competed in sports that simulate traditional equestrian events like dressage and show jumping. For show jumping, competitors were divided by age into several groups that all had their own winners announced after each group had finished. The vast majority of the hobby horses are home-made - splendidly pimped-up, colourful creatures complete with names like Chattanooga Choo Choo and Panda - exchanged and sold by owners at events and through social media. Some of them have been known to fetch up to 200 euros (218 US dollars). Some 10,000 people are currently estimated to be involved in hobby-horsing in Finland, and its popularity is also growing steadily in the other Nordic countries and elsewhere in Europe, though the numbers are much smaller. No official statistics exist as hobby horsing doesn't have any affiliation with Finnish sports associations and enthusiasts meet and exchange views mainly at online discussion forums and share photos and videos on social media platforms.

Museum of Failure celebrates unsuccessful innovations
(2 Jun 2017) LEADIN: Many museums celebrate our greatest achievements, but now one in Sweden is showcasing a selection of innovation failures. Helsingborg's Museum of Failure presents an amusing look at brand innovations that aimed for the stars... but missed. STORYLINE: Green Heinz ketchup? Fat-free Pringles? Colgate frozen lasagna? A doggie woof-translator? You don't need to be an expert to know they weren't successful. Which is why these wild creations - along with around 60 others - are star artifacts at Helsingborg's new Museum of Failure, a wacky parade of unsuccessful products from years gone by. It's the brainchild of 43-year-old curator and clinical psychologist Samuel West. The idea came to him when holidaying in Croatia and he quickly purchased the internet domain name. West later realised he'd accidentally misspelt 'museum' - a sure sign his project would succeed. "In innovation, we know that 80 to 90 percent of innovation projects they fail and you never read about them, you don't see them, people don't talk about them," says West. "And if there's anything we can do from these failures is learn from them. But, you can't learn from them, if you can't talk about them or see them." Many featured products show companies attempting to diversify their brand and break from what they're traditionally known for. There's Coca-Cola's 'BlaK' coffee beverage and Pepsi's 'Crystal' clear soda. Iconic American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson makes an appearance, but there's not a bike in sight. Instead, there's a men's eau-du-toilette, launched in the mid-90s. "They launched this cologne and people, the fans, hated it," explains West. "They said: 'You're Disneyfying our brand,' They had Christmas ornaments, Barbie dolls, all kinds of other stuff with the Harley-Davidson logo and it sort of trivializes the brand and it wasn't popular amongst their core fans." Even one of the world's best-known businessmen makes an appearance - President of the United States Donald Trump. The 'I'm Back And You're Fired' board game from 2004 looks like Monopoly, but players use 'T' branded pieces and the paper notes are adorned with Trump's image. "It's a boring version of 'Monopoly,' it's simplified so stupid people can play it, but it's also horribly boring," says West. "And the game is full of Trump's logo, picture of Trump on the money, anecdotes, stories about how successful Trump is, the game is horrible." Perhaps surprisingly, the Museum of Failure is also home to some high-tech devices, including Google's 'Glass' headset, with augmented reality display and in-built camera. "The problem was Google released it too early, it was still a prototype, so it as full of bugs, there weren't any applications, it wasn't really useful in anyway," says West. "On top of that, the Google Glass had huge privacy issues, so they were banned from cafes in San Francisco and people (that) used Google Glass were called 'Glass-holes'." Of course, many of the brand's featured in West's collection of failures will dispute their place - it's the equivalent of a Hollywood actor being nominated for a 'Razzie' award. Segway may feel particularly aggrieved to see its two-wheeled electric mobility device making an appearance, but West claims it's justified given how revolutionary developers first thought the vehicle would be. "It was an innovation, and it failed to meet those expectations that they had from the start," explains West. "The Segway was supposed to revolutionize the way we transport people, it was supposed to be to the car, what the car was to the horse and buggy. "And we all know that the Segway today is used by tourists before the go get drunk." The bulky black device paved the way for the iPhones and iPads millions use today.

NASA Picks 12 New Astronauts from Huge Pool
(8 Jun 2017) NASA chose 12 new astronauts Wednesday from its biggest pool of applicants ever, selecting seven men and five women who could one day fly aboard the nation's next generation of spacecraft. The astronaut class of 2017 includes doctors, scientists, engineers, pilots and military officers from Anchorage to Miami and points in between. They've worked in submarines, emergency rooms, university lecture halls, jet cockpits and battleships. They range in age from 29 to 42, and they typically led the pack. Vice President Mike Pence welcomed group during a televised ceremony at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. He offered President Donald Trump's congratulations and noted that the president is "firmly committed to NASA's noble mission, leading America in space." Pence assured the crowd that NASA will have the resources and support necessary to continue to make history. More than 18,300 people threw their hats into the space ring during a brief application period 1 1/2 years ago. That's more than double the previous record of 8,000, set in 1978 when the space shuttles were close to launching. The 12 selected Wednesday will join 44 astronauts already in the NASA corps. U.S. astronauts have not launched from home soil since 2011, thus the low head count. But that could change next year. After two years of training, the newbies may end up riding commercial rockets to the International Space Station or flying beyond the moon in NASA's Orion spacecraft. Their ultimate destination could be Mars. SpaceX and Boeing are building capsules capable of carrying astronauts to the space station and back, as soon as next year. A launch engineer and senior manager for SpaceX, Robb Kulin, is among the new astronauts. He's also worked as an ice driller in Antarctica and a commercial fisherman in Alaska. Kulin and his classmates may be in for a long wait for space. Some members of the class of 2009 have yet to launch. Jack Fischer, who was in that group, just got to the space station in April, but he said he couldn't be happier as he showed the latest hires their "new office" in a video. This is NASA's 22nd group of astronauts. The first group, the original Mercury 7 astronauts, was chosen in 1959. Altogether, 350 Americans have now been selected to become astronauts. Requirements include U.S. citizenship; degrees in science, technology, engineering or math; and at least three years of experience or 1,000 hours of piloting jets.

Drug Lord El Chapo Brought to New York City
(20 Jan 2017) Infamous Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who twice escaped from maximum-security prisons in his country, was extradited at the request of the United States to face drug trafficking and other charges and arrived in New York late Thursday. A plane carrying Guzman landed at a suburban airport, where a caravan of SUVs waited for him. He arrived at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan late Thursday. Guzman, the convicted leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel, one of the world's largest drug trafficking organizations, was expected to spend the night in a New York jail before his first appearance in a federal courthouse in Brooklyn on Friday, officials said. Mexico's Department of Foreign Relations announced Guzman was handed over to U.S. authorities for transportation to the U.S. earlier Thursday, the last full day of Democratic President Barack Obama's administration and a day before Republican Donald Trump's scheduled inauguration.
