(15 May 2018) TARAJI P. HENSON: IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT WITH FIANCE KELVIN HAYDEN Taraji P. Henson was all smiles Monday (14 MAY 2018) on the red carpet, basking in the glow of her recent engagement. The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden on Mother's Day. "I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. I just didn't know when. That surprised me. He just did it," said Henson, as she attended an annual event in New York where Fox promotes its new TV lineup to advertisers. The actress said she was introduced to Hayden by her makeup artist three years ago -- and it was love at first sight. "She was like, 'You need to go out. You need to meet somebody. You're too fly. You're too amazing.' I was like, 'I don't know.' She's like, 'You're not gonna meet him at home. You need to go out.'" The makeup artist arranged a party full of eligible bachelors for Henson to mingle with. "I remember I was like, 'You better show me the pictures of some of these guys because I don't want to embarrass you and I feel weird doing this anyway but I'm gonna do it," she recalled. "She kept showing me his picture and it was like a close-up and I remember I zoomed into his eyes and I was like, I felt a spark. And I was like, 'Wow, something about his eyes are so gentle.' And you know how they say you can fall in love at first sight from a picture? That's exactly what happened so when we got to the actual event, I met everybody, I shook all the other guy's hands and I literally was looking for him and when he walked up to where I was it was like people parted like the red sea, a light came on, I heard angels and he reached out to shake my hand and we danced and we talked and we were hanging out every day since," she laughed. Henson says her "Empire" co-stars are thrilled with the news. "Jussie came down to my room and screamed and did backflips. Terrence said some amazing things about my fiance today in interviews because he's known him since we started dating and he's just happy. They're all really happy for me," she said. Howard says Hayden must be special for Henson to choose to be with him. "Watching so many people try and court her and the integrity that she showed. She's always had a motto. I've never known any person that she's worked with that's ever been able to go on a date with her, you know, she's that secure about maintaining her integrity so for her to let Kelvin in I'm like, wow. That's a big move. That's a big move right there for her." Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their new schedules to advertisers in New York this week.

Australian diver comments on Thai cave rescue operation
 
01:58
(5 Jul 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ASSOCIATED PRESS – AP CLIENTS ONLY Mae Sai – 5 July 2018 1. Matt Fitzgerald, from Australian Federal Police (AFP) tactical response dive team, talking to reporters 2. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Fitzgerald, member of Tactical Response Dive Team, Australian Federal Police: "It will be terrifying, but the children are aware of the cave, they know the cave, they have been the cave very often so." 3. Two members of AFP tactical response dive team near cave entrance 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Fitzgerald, member of Tactical Response Dive Team, Australian Federal Police: "At this point in time, the AFP dive team has reached cave, point three, of the cave, which is approximately 1.5 kilometres in. (Reporter, off-camera: "And that's point, isn't it, where it becomes a diver-only to get through, is that right?") Fizgerald: "Yes, at that point in time, it's a specific dive requirement, unfortunately, based on some of our equipment, it's a challenge for us, at this point in time which we are working around." 5. Emergency workers during rescue operation 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Fitzgerald, member of Tactical Response Dive Team, Australian Federal Police: "It's quite challenging obviously. It's zero visibility, It's confined space so it's challenging." 7. Various of rescue and emergency workers at rescue base STORYLINE: A member of the Australian Federal Police who are assisting Thai authorities in rescuing the 12 boys and their football coach trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand said on Thursday that rescuing the boys remained a challenge. Matt Fitzgerald, from Australia's Federal Police tactical response dive team, told reporters despite zero visibility and confined space rescuers were working around problems. Thai officials have said they prefer to get the boys out as soon as possible because heavy rain is expected to start by Saturday, which almost surely will raise water levels again in the cave, making passage in some areas even more difficult if not impossible. They are hoping that an upgraded draining effort can lower the water level in an area where it is still at the ceiling or just about. The idea is to get some headroom so the boys would not be reliant on scuba apparatus for a long stretch and could keep their heads above water. The boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach disappeared after they went exploring in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in the northern province after a football game June 23. =========================================================== 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.

Olympic gold medalist Shiffrin: I'm no Michael Phelps
 
03:22
(10 Feb 2018) US ski racer Mikaela Shiffrin couldn't help but laugh on Saturday when a reporter asked what her reaction was to being compared to Michael Phelps, the US swimmer who is the most decorated Olympian in history. "You're crazy," the American ski racer replied. "OK, he has, what, 23 medals?" Actually, Phelps' haul is 23 golds - and 28 medals in all. Shiffrin's only medal so far is a gold in slalom at age 18 in 2014 at Sochi. She comes to the Pyeongchang Games with a chance to become the first skier to win that race twice in a row at the Olympics. She will also be among the favourites in Monday's giant slalom, and might also enter the downhill and super-G. For now, though, she'll only commit to entering the slalom and giant slalom. "I would like to compete in everything," she said. "I'm not sure if I'm actually going to have the energy to do that."

Sean Penn: Bradley Cooper remake of 'A Star is Born' is astonishing
 
02:54
(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz. The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version). A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance. One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years." "The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody." Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein." Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story." A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

Evicted white farmer returns to his  farm in Zimbabwe
 
04:00
(22 Dec 2017) A white commercial farmer, who was evicted from his farm in Manicaland province in Zimbabwe, returned to the area on Thursday after local community members said they wanted him back. Robert Smart and his family were welcomed back at their home after community members, local politicians and the country's new government intervened to reverse their forceful eviction by heavily armed Zimbabwean riot police back in June. The tobacco and maize grower was evicted from the estate near Rusape, about 200 kilometres (125 miles) east of Harare, to reportedly pave way for a top cleric, Trevor Manhanga, who had links with then president Robert Mugabe. The grabbing of Lesbury Farm came shortly after Mugabe told his supporters at a rally that all remaining white commercial farmers should be kicked off their properties to make way for the ruling Zanu-PF party's youth and his supporters who had no land. But, according to New Zimbabwe.com, president Mnangagwa's special adviser Chris Mutswangwa said on Tuesday that Smart and his son Darryn should not be disturbed in their farming activities. "These farmers are Zimbabweans and they belong to Manicaland province," Mutswangwa was quoted as saying, adding that the country now needed direct investments to boost the economy. Land is a contentious issue in Zimbabwe, where the government of former President Robert Mugabe, starting around 2000, initiated land seizures and evictions of farmers from the country's white minority, which relinquished power in 1980 after a guerrilla war by black nationalists. Mugabe said the often-violent reform program was meant to redistribute resources to poor blacks, but many prime farms instead ended up in the hands of ruling ZANU-PF party leaders, party loyalists, security chiefs, relatives and cronies. More recently, the situation was further complicated by rifts within the ruling party that led to the military intervention and the victory of president Emmerson Mnangagwa over a faction linked to Mugabe's wife Grace, who previously had presidential ambitions. Mnangagwa in his inauguration speech said farmers would be compensated for the seized land but said the program itself would not be reversed.

Harry and Meghan talk toasties in visit to cafe which supports homeless people
 
03:44
(13 Feb 2018) Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle are continuing their pre-wedding tour of Britain with a trip to Scotland.    Hundreds of well-wishers greeted the couple Tuesday in a cold and windy Edinburgh. After a trip to Edinburgh Castle, one of Scotland's most famous landmarks, the couple met founders and staff at the Social Bite cafe, a social enterprise which offers work to those without their own living accommodation. As they were shown around the kitchen, the couple shared their enthusiasm for cheese and ham toasties, while Harry veered off-topic to question a French member of staff which country she is supporting in the ongoing Six Nations rugby championship.    Leaving the cafe, the fashionable Markle wore a tartan coat by Burberry to honour the plaid for which Scotland is known.    It was the couple's fourth official engagement together as Harry introduces Markle to various parts of Britain.    They plan to meet members of the public and with various organisations involved in community work.    The American actress and Harry are set to marry at Windsor Castle on May 19.

David Bowie is...’ exhibition makes last, and largest stop, at Brooklyn Museum
 
05:23
(28 Feb 2018) 'DAVID BOWIE IS' EXHIBITION MAKES LAST, AND LARGEST STOP, AT BROOKLYN MUSEUM Five years after premiering in London, a comprehensive David Bowie exhibit is making its last and most potent stop when it opens at the Brooklyn Museum in New York on Friday (2 MARCH). "David Bowie is" will be one of the biggest the museum has ever done. It includes iconic costumes, video footage, and some offbeat items too. Victoria Broackes, from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, co-curated the exhibit. She explains how Bowie was chosen for the initial 2013 exhibition. "We actually had Bowie on the top of a really short list of people we wanted to cover as a single artist subject at the VNA. But there was very little material, just a couple of collections in the UK, and that was because Bowie had it all, and he had been amassing it over many years. And then in the last ten years or so he was actually buying back material whereas ever came onto the market, which was rarely. So that is so unusual.  I don't know of another artist it's not just a pop artist but he has an archive of 75,000 objects going back to childhood. That is exceptional, "Broackes said. Matthew Yokobosky designed the space at the museum for the massive showing. But when it's over, he's not sure if there's going to be a more permanent place for the material. "The final venue for this exhibition, which is why it had to be just even a little bit more over the top. And you know, what will happen with David's material after is still being discussed." The material includes costumes from many of the Bowie's iconic looks, including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Halloween Jack, Major Tom, and the Thin White Duke. Broackes said that these personas were important to Bowie, because they allowed him to go beyond the music. "We're standing in the video section of the exhibition where we look at how Bowie really from his earliest days was interested in how the music looked, as well as how it sounded. And we have the famous 'Ashes to Ashes' costume by Natasha Korniloff, which she worked - she was a particular dance designer, and worked with Bowie going right back into the early days in the late 60s and 70s. And he worked with her again in 1980 for that video, which you know, we have to think it predates MTV. But Bowie was ahead of the pack in videos, as well as most other things," Broackes said. The exhibition includes approximately 500 objects, including 60 performance costumes, photographs, posters, handwritten lyrics, and videos. Yokobosky highlighted some of the must-see areas, which include many of Bowie's influences. "Yeah, you definitely want to hit the music video room, where the entire room is designed like a lightning bolt. You want to hit the black and white years, which the walls are painted to look like the set from this late 70s concert. You definitely want to look for the early material of influence, from German theater, Japanese theater - I mean, he studied a lot." "David Bowie is" opens on Friday (2 MARCH) and runs through July 15.

New US envoy to Netherlands grilled over 2015 comments
 
02:28
(10 Jan 2018) The new US ambassador to the Netherlands clashed Wednesday with Dutch reporters on his first official day in the job over controversial comments he made in 2015. Hoekstra previously claimed that the "Islamic movement" was creating chaos in Europe and suggested that extremists were burning politicians and cars in the Netherlands. At a news conference shortly after presenting his credentials to Dutch King Willem-Alexander at a palace in The Hague, Pete Hoekstra was repeatedly asked about the comments he made at a 2015 conference, which made headlines last year when he described his own words to a Dutch reporter as fake news. Hoekstra later denied using the phrase fake news. In a statement last year, Hoekstra said: "I made certain remarks in 2015 and regret the exchange during the Nieuwsuur interview. Please accept my apology." On Wednesday, Hoekstra referred back to that statement and said he didn't want to revisit the issue - but that did not stop Dutch reporters from pressing unsuccessfully for a clarification. Dutch reporters reacted angrily, with one saying "this is the Netherlands; you have to answer questions". Another asked if the ambassador could name a politician who had been burned in recent years. Hoekstra, a former Republican congressman from Michigan, was born in the northern Dutch city of Groningen before his family emigrated to the United States. He previously served as chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and was the ranking Republican on the Committee until 2011. He told reporters he would work to build on existing strong links between the Netherlands and the United States.

Stormy Daniels Lawyer Confident About Case
 
02:27
(20 Apr 2018) Outside a California court on Friday, Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti said he was confident that the civil case would move forward without delay. Despite Michael Cohen's efforts to postpone the case after FBI agents raided his office and residence, Avenatti said the court observed "gaping holes" in the application submitted by Mr. Cohen and President Donald Trump. Avenatti said outside court it was "clear to me Michael Cohen and the president do not want to publicly state" that Cohen intends to take the Fifth. The amendment offers protection against self-incrimination. Avenatti said his belief is that an indictment for Mr. Cohen will be released within the next 90 days.

Rescuers at Thai cave complex hold evacuation drill
 
03:14
(30 Jun 2018) Rescuers in Thailand held an evacuation drill on Friday as the search continued for 12  boys and their football coach who disappeared in a cave a week ago. The drill involved a team of nurses, 13 ambulances and a helicopter. Tanasarn Phruethisathaphon, a volunteer doctor, said the plan was to treat the teenagers inside the cave until they were able to move themselves. But an emergency evacuation would be carried out if they were in critical condition. Special care would be given to their eyes to protect them from sudden exposure to light after so many day in the dark. The boys, aged 11 to 16, and their coach entered the sprawling Tham Luang Nang Non cave after a soccer game on Saturday afternoon, but near-constant rains and flooded have stalled the search for them. While muddy floodwaters still reached near the entrance of the cave, Narongsak Osatanakorn, Chiang Rai's Governor, said water level inside the cave had decreased. Throughout the past week, people have travelled to the site to pray and give offerings to what they believe are the cave's spirits. Many Thais believe that all places have guardian spirits. On Saturday, authorities denied a request from local residents dressed in traditional clothes to pray inside the cave.

'Riverdale' star Lili Reinhart says Kate Moss told her at the Met Gala that she watches the show
 
04:45
(17 May 2018) 'RIVERDALE' CAST TALK THE SHOW'S VARIETY OF FANS, INCLUDING MODEL KATE MOSS Fresh off its second season finale, the cast of "Riverdale" gathered in New York Thursday (17 MAY 2018) for an annual event where its network, The CW, presents its new TV lineup to advertisers. The series is based on the characters of Archie Comics, living in a small town called Riverdale, which is often dark and gritty beneath its perfect image. KJ Apa stars as Archie Andrews alongside Cole Sprouse as his best friend Jughead Jones, with Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, the girl next door, and Camila Mendes as his on again - off again love, Veronica Lodge. Sprouse said the show was conceived as a teen version of "Twin Peaks." "I'm a big (David) Lynch fan myself and after I sat through 'Twin Peaks' I got the general idea of what was gonna happen in our show, I think in terms of success we never could've calculated the success but I think we definitely reduce risk in a way. We were using characters that were very well established and very well known and we were re-introducing them in a much more realistic, three dimensional setting so in that way we are already engaging a larger audience but I think we were still taking a risk, comic fans can be pretty volatile when we take content that's not like the original that they knew, but the 'Archie' fan base was wonderful and super accepting of us and what we were doing with the show and how we were turning it, so it's a privilege to think that people watch it and it's been successful." The show has built up a following of fans of all ages, including celebrities. "I was at the Met Ball last week and Kate Moss was like, 'I love your show, I watch your show with my daughter' and I was like, 'Great,' said Reinhart. "It's like it's always crazy to see who watches the show and who gets invested in it." Charles Melton, who plays jock Reggie Mantle recalled a surprising fan encounter. "I was on a flight back home to Kansas and there's this guy, you know, wearing a trucker hat and everything. He bumps into me and I'm about to fall asleep and he goes, 'Hey, man. You're Reggie Mantle, right? From 'Riverdale.'" This guy's like 45-years-old and I'm like, 'Yeah, man.' He goes, 'I knew it' and he looks back at his wife and he goes, 'I knew it, I told you. I told you.' And she's like, 'I am so sorry for my husband. I am so sorry.' I thought that was pretty cool." Sprouse says the series is appreciated differently internationally. "Actually internationally I think our show is understood a lot differently than it is in the States. Our show, the entirety of our show is very tongue-in-cheek poke at soap operas and how camp it is and how huge it can be and how, I mean it's practically visual bubblegum I think. That's really well understood in places like London where everyone gets that that's what we're doing. Places like Paris or France really enjoy the neo noir classic Americana feel and cinematography that we're pushing and I think in those two cities specifically the abstract of our show is much more well-understood than it is in the States." "Riverdale" returns this fall for its third season Wednesdays on The CW.

That was impossible to fulfil. So for this reason I went to the Ecuadorian consulate (in Belgium) because it is my right to present myself. She didn't accept that and using this as justification, she put this warrant, she issued this warrant order. And that was the plan. Because with this warrant I cannot go back to my country. I cannot defend myself during the lawsuit. The lawsuit must be stopped. And in this way I cannot go back to Ecuador during the next eight to 10 years." 6.

SOUNDBITE (English) Rafael Correa, former President of Ecuador: "You know, always this kind of situation is very stressful but I am quite confident that nothing will happen because it's so ridiculous, the accusation. The warrant is so illegal. The case is extremely political, a political case, very clearly. So a country like Belgium, in these cases, will not allow (anyone) to attack the rights of a person living here. So I am quite confident that this warrant won't be effective outside of Ecuador." 16. Exterior of street near Correa's apartment STORYLINE: Former President Rafael Correa on Thursday called Ecuador's demand for him to be jailed and extradited from Belgium just a power ploy by the government to stamp out opposition, adding that it will instead push him back to the forefront of politics. In an interview with The Associated Press from his family home close to Brussels, Correa said he had no plans to report to Ecuadorian authorities investigating his possible links with a botched, brief 2012 kidnapping of a lawmaker. Ecuador's chief prosecutor this week demanded Correa's arrest and extradition after the 55-year-old former leader failed to appear at court in Ecuador's capital as required under the terms of the investigation. A judge approved chief prosecutor Paul Perez's request and also issued an order for Correa's capture and extradition. Correa said the case was politically motivated to put him in jail or keep him from coming back. "I cannot go back to Ecuador during the next eight to 10 years," if the case continues to run its course, he said. He added that he expects to remain in Belgium, which is his wife's home country, for several years. Correa, a firebrand leader who governed Ecuador for a decade, garnered legions of supporters by promoting generous health and social programmes aimed at reducing inequality, but his record has increasingly come under scrutiny since leaving power in 2017.

Diplo on Cardi B: She's 'one of the most fascinating females in music'
 
03:35
(12 Jan 2018) DIPLO ON CARDI B: SHE'S 'ONE OF THE MOST FASCINATING FEMALES IN MUSIC' With few exceptions, male artists have been dominating the American music charts over the past year. Despite the success of artists like Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello and Cardi B, EDM star Diplo attributes the relative lack of female chart-toppers to a shift in the way people are creating and consuming music. "We're having a lot of songs that are just becoming, not really one hit wonders, but we have songs that are charging up the charts themselves via streaming services. A lot of young records, rap music, and I think these records are doing it on their own. They're not working with giant marketing machines. And if you do rely on those things, like Katy's albums or… 'cause nothing is guaranteed anymore. That's the main thing. Years ago, you could always bet your money, like some of these pop stars were like the big banks that couldn't fail. But now nothing is guaranteed." Katy Perry's "Witness" dropped last June and underperformed compared to her previous releases. According to Diplo, another problem is that U.S. charts don't allow for movement among the top positions. "We have longer running number ones too. Like in England, there's a new number one... Basically, there's like 40 number ones a year or every week there's like a new number one. So Rita Ora had like three number ones this year. In England, charts change a lot quicker. In America, we kind of have people who stay in the charts and it's a larger country to kind of like move in one direction or another. But there wasn't a lot of records out either. Last year (2016) was like you had Beyonce, you had Adele. You had these huge records that took up all the space on the charts. It just comes in waves." Many are hopeful for more female chart toppers in 2018. So far "Perfect," from Ed Sheeran and Beyonce, has led Billboard's Hot 100 pack. Camila Cabello's "Havana" continues its reign on the Pop Songs chart and Cardi B recently became the third act to nab three Hot 100 spots in the top 10 at the same time. "I think it's kind of refreshing that we have records like Cardi B going number one. That would never happen four or five years ago. Cardi B is only the fourth black female to, you know, to have a top 10 record in the last decade. It was only Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Cardi was the other woman to kind of break into that so that's really cool and she came out of 'Love and Hip-Hop.' And like, no one would put her money on her two years ago when you just had her skits. But I thought she was one of the most fascinating females in music, so I'm happy for her." Cardi B started off as an ex-stripper on VH1 reality show "Love and Hip-Hop" before debuting "Bodak Yellow," which became a No. 1 smash.

Sophia robot takes first steps ++EMBARGOED 1300 GMT++
 
05:10
(8 Jan 2018) LEADIN: The humanoid robot Sophia is taking her first steps thanks to a new partnership with a university robotics lab. The Hong Kong-based startup Hanson Robotics has joined forces with experts at the University of Las Vegas to give walking legs to the talkative droid. STORYLINE: One small step for Sophia, one giant leap for AI. In the workplace of the Drones and Autonomous Systems Lab (DASL) at the University of Las Vegas, Sophia is taking her first ever steps. Gingerly, she shuffles along watched closely by her creator, Hanson Robotics founder and CEO David Hanson. The addition of legs to the lifelike bot is another stage in pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence for Hanson and his team. "We're really aspiring for Sophia to help people in medical applications, therapy, medical assistance and by giving her a body then that means that Sophia can help to learn to work with us in factories and help us around the home," says Hanson. "Eventually, we expect that she will be truly alive and with us in our world helping people on a daily basis." Experts from the University of Las Vegas created DRC-HUBO, a walking robot that won the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) in 2015, beating 22 competitors from five different countries. That expertise is now being applied to Sophia's evolving mobility. Hanson Robotics is also partnering with South Korea based Rainbow Robotics to make Sophia mobile. "So currently, with mechanical engineering practices, it's kind of rigid, which means a if robot falls, we have to calculate how to yield and it's very easy for robots to break and how to respond when walking that's very complicated too," says Hanson. Sophia first debuted in March 2016. A multinational team of scientists and engineers are fine tuning her appearance and the algorithms that enable her to smile, blink and refine her understanding and communication. Her skin is made of a nanotech material that Hanson invented and dubbed "Frubber," short for flesh-rubber, that has a flesh-like bouncy texture mimicking human skin. Cameras in her eyes and a 3D sensor in her chest help her "see." The processor that serves as her brain combines facial and speech recognition, natural language processing, speech synthesis and a motion control system. "Our AI team is really aspiring to use Sofia as a platform for achieving human-level general intelligence, that's creativity, the ability to dream and imagine, the ability to have compassion," says Hanson. "And that's another way that the physical body is really important. So, the machines can understand what it means to feel human through embodiment, compassion, to feel with us. "That's really important for artificial intelligence, I think, to be safe in the future, so they can understand what it feels to be human." The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) runs 9-12 January. Over 3,900 exhibitors will crowd Las Vegas convention centres showcasing the latest in high-tech products, devices and services. Top trends at this year's event include artificial intelligence, the 'Internet of Things' and mobility tech.

US rescuer in Thai cave says boys and coach 'incredibly resilient'
 
02:20
(11 Jul 2018) The leader of the US team that helped save 12 young boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand says it was a once in a lifetime rescue. Derek Anderson says the boys endured dives with zero visibility lasting up to half an hour, long passageways barely bigger than an adult body, and in places were put in a harness and highlined across rocky caverns. Anderson, a rescue specialist with the US Air Force based in Japan, said the football team and their coach who were trapped for more than two weeks, were "incredibly resilient". "Their coach and the boys all came together and discussed staying strong, having that will to live, having the will to survive," he said. The group had entered the sprawling Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand to go exploring after soccer practice on June 23, but monsoon rain filled the tight passageways, blocking their escape, and pushing them deeper inside in search of safe place to wait. The scale of the challenge confronting rescuers from across the world only truly dawned on the US team after they arrived at the cave in northern Thailand in the early hours of June 28. The Thai government had requested US assistance. "The mouth of the cave was dry when we arrived and within an hour and half it had already filled up at least two to three feet and we were being pushed out," said Anderson who was born in Syracuse, NY and grew up in Ecuador. "That was just in the very beginning of the cave and at that point we realised this problem was going to be much more complex than we originally thought," he said. Thailand's decision to dive the boys out despite their weak condition and lack of diving experience was made when a window of opportunity was provided by relatively mild weather. A massive operation to pump water out also meant air pockets were created at crucial points of the cave, making a rescue possible. Falling oxygen levels, risk of sickness and the imminent prospect of more rain flooding the cave complex for months meant "the long-term survivability of the boys in the cave was becoming a less and less feasible option," said Anderson. Divers practiced their rescue techniques in a swimming pool with local children about the same height and weight as the members of the "Wild Boars" soccer team trapped in the cave. The aim, Anderson said, was to make each of the boys tightly packaged so divers could keep control of them, and adjust their air supply as needed, as they were guided out in a process lasting hours for each boy. "In this type of cave diving you have to lay line, rope, that's your lifeline. You have to ensure when you go in you have a way out," said Anderson. "They were making progress but it was very little progress and they were exhausting themselves, spending anywhere from four, five and six hours and maybe covering 40 metres, 50 meters." There were about a hundred people inside the cave for each rescue operation, Anderson said, and each boy was handled by dozens of people as their perilous movement through a total of nine chambers unfolded.

Various aerial footage of lava flow and fissure eruptions from Puna area of Kilauea volcano STORYLINE: The Hawaii Army National Guard captured night aerial shots of lava flowing and fissures erupting from the Kilauea volcano along the lower Puna area of Big Island. Scientists say sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano have more than doubled since the current eruption began. The increase reported Tuesday could boost volcanic smog, known as vog, but trade winds are currently carrying most of the gas offshore. The U.S. Geological Survey says the volcano is belching 15,000 tons of sulfur dioxide each day from vents.

UN human rights chief tells Israel 'enough is enough' over Gaza deaths
 
02:52
(15 May 2018) The UN's High Commissioner for Human Rights has condemned the killing and wounding of Palestinians by Israeli troops in mass protests on the Gaza border on Monday. Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein's spokesman Rupert Colville described it as "appalling deadly violence during which 58 Palestinians were killed and almost 1,360 demonstrators were injured with live ammunition fired by Israeli security forces." Colville spoke at a news briefing in Geneva on Tuesday and urged an investigation into the events. He said those responsible must be held accountable.   Colville urged restraint saying "enough is enough." Monday was the single deadliest day there since a 2014 war and part of a high-stakes campaign by Gaza's Hamas rulers to break a decade-long border blockade. The high casualty toll also revived international criticism of Israel's use of lethal force against unarmed protesters. At the same time, the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, condemned by Palestinians as blatantly pro-Israel, further dimmed prospects of what US President Donald Trump had once touted as plans to negotiate the Mideast "deal of the century." The U.N. Security Council planned to meet on Tuesday to discuss the violence, though it was not clear what might come out of the session.

Uighur Protest Against China Camps
 
03:02
(15 Mar 2018) More than a hundred members of the Uighur Muslim ethnic group held a demonstration outside the United Nations on Thursday to protest a sweeping Chinese surveillance and security campaign that has sent thousands of their people into detention and political indoctrination centers. Most of the protestors live in America and Canada and said they are unable to communicate with relatives in China for fear those relatives will be sent to camps. Uighur are Muslims, many of whom say the land they live on is East Turkestan, but the Chinese government calls the land Xinjiang and those who want to break away are called separatists. Protesters say Uighur are being rounded up by the hundreds of thousands and put in camps where they are taught to abandon Islam, embrace atheism and become patriotic Chinese. They are calling on the United Nations to protect their culture and their practice of religion. Chinese officials say the crackdown is necessary to stamp out a decades-long separatist movement and, more recently, Islamic extremism seeping into the region. Hundreds have died in violent clashes in recent years that the government blames on separatist militants. Allegations of widespread abuse in the centers, including unexplained deaths, have been rife but are almost impossible to confirm, given the extreme level of surveillance and government obstruction of independent reporting trips by foreign media. Associated Press reporters were detained for 11 hours by police in Xinjiang in November while investigating the reported death of a 26-year-old in an indoctrination center.

Jennifer Garner returns to the action genre with 'Peppermint'
 
01:41
(25 Apr 2018) JENNIFER GARNER RETURNS TO THE ACTION GENRE WITH 'PEPPERMINT' Jennifer Garner says her latest film strikes a good balance between action and drama. Speaking at Cinemacon in Las Vegas on Tuesday (24 APRIL 2018), where she's promoting "Peppermint," Garner said that balance was down to the film's director Pierre Morel, who previously helmed 2008 action hit "Taken." "If you're just doing action and you're kind of running around killing people, then it just, you know, it's all gratutious and it's not, you know, it feels flimsy. This, the drama was every bit as strong as the action and I was in that great solid hands when Pierre Morel," said Garner. "I knew that he understood that balance and he understood both sides of the equation." In the film, Garner plays a mother who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. With nothing to lose, she sets out to deliver her own personal brand of justice. It's a revenge thriller that is action-packed, which the 46-year-old star - who previously showed off her action chops in 2005's "Elektra" - prepared "almost every day" for. "I did Body by Simone which is a dance cardio and weight training and that was the main workout that I did," said Garner.  "And then otherwise, I boxed, I did martial arts I did... I was with Valerie Waters. You know, it was kind of all over the place." By the time it came to filming, Garner said she "felt really ready for it." "I trained really hard and I have, you know, my stunt double and I have worked together almost 20 years. She's like a sister - Shauna Duggins. And so to get to train with her and to go back to being part of the stunt community was awesome." "Peppermint" is set to be released in the U.S. on 7 September 2018.

OIC Tourism summit opens in Dhaka
 
04:00
(6 Feb 2018) LEADIN: Ministers from Muslim countries are meeting to discuss ways to boost tourism. Members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation want to attract both Muslim and non-Muslim visitors to their countries. STORYLINE: The future of Islamic tourism is being discussed in Dhaka. Tourism ministers from member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) have gathered in the Bangladeshi capital. They want to find ways to promote the heritage and culture of their countries and attract people to visit their shores. Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina inaugurates the conference. She tells delegates there is "huge potential to develop faith-based Islamic products and services". The conference is being held under the theme "Enhancing Regional Integration through Tourism". Experts say Muslim-friendly tourism has been growing at a fast pace and can be a driver for economic growth in OIC countries as well as the global market. Among the popular destinations for Islamic tourism are Saudi Arabia, Iran, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Indonesia and Malaysia. Emel Cong, executive assistance of Secretary General of SMIIC, The Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries, says Muslims "want to travel". She says priorities are the right facilities, halal food, friendly people and a sense of safety. With a rising number of Muslim tourists, the demand for infrastructure and facilities designed in line with the Islamic principles is also increasing. These include halal hotels that serve only halal food and no alcohol, don't allow gambling and provide prayer mats. There are also Islamic-themed tour packages with visits to the mosques and Islamic monuments, especially during Ramadan. "The heritage of the Muslim nations is a great potential, so to be able to attract other nations, not only the Muslim nations, we want other nations also to visit these attractive and these heritage places in Muslim countries," says Saeed Ohadi, Deputy of the Vice President responsible for tourism and heritage. "We have to try to arrange the infrastructures: airports, transportations, accommodations, hotels, infrastructures for the attractive places." The conference runs from 5-7 February.

Philippine volcano spews lava fountains, 56,000 people flee
 
01:35
(23 Jan 2018) The Philippines' most active volcano spewed fountains of red-hot lava and massive ash plumes on Wednesday morning in a dazzling but increasingly dangerous eruption that has sent 56,000 villagers fleeing to evacuation centres. Lava fountains gushed up 700 metres (2,300 feet) above Mount Mayon's crater and ash plumes rose up to 3 kilometres (1.9 miles) at least twice Tuesday, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology. An explosive eruption at noon Monday was the most powerful since the volcano started acting up more than a week ago. Authorities warned a violent eruption may occur in hours or days, characterized by more rumblings and pyroclastic flows - superheated gas and volcanic debris that race down the slopes at high speeds, vaporizing everything in their path. At least 56,217 people were taking shelter in 46 evacuation camps Tuesday and army troops and police were helping move more villagers from their homes, officials said.

Hawaii lava evacuees grow weary as uncertainty drags on
 
07:43
(20 May 2018) Ed Arends grabbed what he could in the night and fled his five-acre property with lava oozing from a crack in his neighbourhood on Hawaii's Big Island. That was more than two weeks ago. He hasn't been able to stay at his house since. As uncertainty drags on over what the Kilauea volcano will do next, those who were forced to leave their homes weeks ago are growing weary. More than 300 people were staying at three different shelters as of Saturday, Hawaii County mayor's spokeswoman Janet Snyder said. Some 2,000 people who live in the Leilani Estates neighbourhood, including Arends, and nearby areas were still evacuated after a lava fissure opened on 3 May. Officials ordered more people to evacuate on Saturday when lava crossed a highway and flowed into the ocean, creating new health hazards. Lava has consumed more than 40 buildings. Those who live in the remote, rural Puna district on the slopes of the Kilauea volcano know the lava risks. Leilani Estates sits in a zone that the US Geological Survey deems to have the highest risk of a lava flow. Residents are allowed to return during the day to check on their homes. Some 25 miles (40 kilometres) away at the summit, there are intermittent explosions that send ash wafting over communities. It's not known whether lava flows will keep advancing or stop, and new flows are likely. Don Waguespack, who co-owns Cajun Paradise Farms down a hill from where fissures have opened, evacuated to a small hotel room on the opposite side of the island. Waguespack returned, relieved to find his home on his 10-acre property still standing. Arends and his brother Mike Arends, who also evacuated from Leilani Estates, were grateful their houses were still safe.

China warns against military action against Syria over Douma attack
 
01:27
(10 Apr 2018) China asked on Tuesday for all parties concerned to carry out a "fair and objective investigation" into the apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria. The comments came from foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang at a regular briefing in Beijing. Geng added that China always believes that any disputes should be "resolved peacefully" and that Beijing opposed the use of military force, or the threat of, in an international relationship. US President Donald Trump has threatening a military strike against Syria, vowing to respond "forcefully" to Saturday's apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, warning that Russia - or any other nation found to share responsibility - will "pay a price." Syrian opposition activists said 40 people died in Saturday night's chemical attack in Douma, the last remaining rebel bastion just outside of Damascus. The opposition blamed Assad's forces for the attack, accusations the government and its Russian backers strongly deny.

Jada Pinkett Smith praises Jessica Chastain for wage fight
 
02:17
(25 Jan 2018) JADA PINKETT SMITH PRAISES JESSICA CHASTAIN FOR WAGE FIGHT Jada Pinkett Smith is praising Jessica Chastain for fighting for pay equity in Hollywood. During a diverse storytelling panel at the Sundance Film Festival, Pinkett Smith on Sunday relayed the story that Chastain negotiated raises for both her and actress Octavia Spencer, who are co-starring in an upcoming comedy. "Jessica stood up for Octavia and I want you to know because they stood together, they got three times what they were asking for as a unit," she said. Pinkett Smith stressed the importance of women in Hollywood working together to stop wage disparity. "It's nice to go out and march, we can do that. It's nice to wear black at the Golden Globes. But what are we doing behind closed doors? And I got to give our sister Jessica Chastain her props."

Newest World Trade Center Building Opens Monday
 
05:11
(8 Jun 2018) An 80-story office building set to open Monday (June 11) at the World Trade Center will be the third completed skyscraper at the 16-acre site where the twin towers once stood. There will be a ribbon cutting to formally open the 1,079-foot 3 World Trade Center. Office buildings already open are 1 World Trade Center, 4 World Trade Center, and 7 World Trade Center. Wedged between the Santiago Calatrava-designed transportation hub and 4 World Trade Center, which opened in 2013, the new building, designed by British architect Richard Rogers, consists of an 80-story tower straddling a 17-story box-like structure. Zigzagging beams down the sides of the tower look like an embellishment but are actually structural components that will allow for column-free floor plates inside. About 2.5 million square feet of office space are about 40 percent leased. Advertising company GroupM has taken 700,000 square feet and will start moving in July 16, Valverde said. Management consulting firm McKinsey & Co. has leased 185,000 square feet and will move in next year. "The whole downtown area of New York City we believe is really changing," said Carlos Valverde, a Silverstein Properties vice president who has supervised construction of the building. "We're seeing one, an influx of residents moving into downtown. Sixty-thousand more people moving in downtown since 9/11. We also have a huge, creative, young community. The average age for the GroupM employees, which is our anchor tenant here, is 28- years-old. So it's not your grandfather's Wall Street anymore. It's a brand new lively Wall Street." The building is the first skyscraper in the world to have an annealed glass exterior, with 10,000 glass panels that have been cooled slowly to reduce internal stress, meaning the glass won't break into shards if it is struck. The completion of the $2.7 billion 3 World Trade comes after years of legal fights between developer Larry Silverstein, his insurers, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the land, and the Sept. 11 victims' family members who wanted the entire trade center site to be preserved as a memorial to their loved ones. Silverstein, now 87, thought he had gotten "the brass ring" when he signed a 99-year lease on the trade center in July 2001. Two planes piloted by terrorists destroyed the trade center six weeks later.

911 Calls From Parkland Shooting Released
 
04:55
(9 Mar 2018) When emergency calls began pouring in from parents and students during the Florida high school massacre, 911 operators at first tried to grasp the enormity of the emergency and then sought to calm the callers while gathering information to assist arriving law enforcement officers. The Broward County Sheriff's Office on Thursday released audio of 10 of the 81 calls its 911 center received during the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead and its aftermath. Calls came from students hiding in classrooms and parents who were getting calls and text messages from their children. Other calls arrived from 911 operators in neighboring cities who were relaying information from calls that came into their centers. The school is in the county's jurisdiction. The first calls show the operators' confusion, such as when a male inside the school, possibly a student, whispers, "There's shots at Stoneman Douglas, Someone is shooting up the school at Stoneman Douglas." "I'm sorry. I can't hear you. What's happening?" the dispatcher responds. "Someone is shooting up Marjory Stoneman Douglas" he whispers. She still can't hear him, "Hello... hello...hello." "Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is being shot up," he again whispers. The call ends seconds later. But then a sense of order begins to emerge, as the Broward dispatchers begin giving instructions on keeping the students safe. Just 13 months earlier, the same 911 center had handled a mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale's airport that had left six dead. A male caller said, "My fiancee's little sister just texted me and said there's someone in here shooting guns, he's upstairs, I'm scared. She's in a classroom. I told her to stay safe and hide." He asks if they are getting other calls. Yes, he is told. In a call relayed from nearby Boca Raton, which lasts more than 16 minutes, a man reports information from a mother standing next to him. She is on another line with her daughter who is in a classroom with just one other girl. They have no closet or enclosed desks that can be used for hiding. The 911 operator fruitlessly pulls information from the mother, attempting to learn what classroom the girls are in. They don't know. She soon instructs the man to tell the girls to remain silent and turn off their cellphone ringers in case the shooter is nearby. "I don't need her to make any noise. Everybody needs to be quiet in that room," the operator said. As the call drags on, the mother can be heard in the background encouraging the girl, who hears noises in the hallway. "I love you, I love you. It's going to be fine if you hide somewhere. Can you play dead? You need to fake dead," the mother tells the girl.

Andy Serkis and Benedict Cumberbatch discuss their 'Jungle Book' adaptation, 'Mowgli'
 
02:06
(25 Apr 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ASSOCIATED PRESS Las Vegas, 24 April 2018 1. Wide of director Andy Serkis speaking to reporters 2. SOUNDBITE (English) Andy Serkis, director/actor - on how his story is different than the "Jungle Book": "It's a familiar story but, as with all classic pieces of writing, the interpretation is everything and this I feel is probably closest to Rudyard Kipling's book that was written at the turn of the century, 19th century. It is very much located in Indian culture as a big Indian cast. In fact, you see a lot of Mowgli not only in the village, in the jungle, being raised as a feral child, as wolf with animals but also trying to negotiate how to become a human. And really what is I think what the book is really about is his wiliness and his steeliness and his using his skills and everything that he's learned emotionally and in terms of his animal side from being grown up with animals but applying that to, there's certain rules and customs that aren't right for him as an animal neither are there customs and traditions and ways of being in the human world that are right for him and he has to create his own identity." 3. Medium shot Benedict Cumberbatch speaking to reporters 4.  SOUNDBITE (English) Benedict Cumberbatch, actor - on what makes this film special: "One of the wonders of the film, what little I've seen of it, very very little, just some of the stuff I've done in it - it's seamless between live action, between real environments, between the jungle, the water, and this extraordinary rendition of our performances and animated creature. The creatures are very much... It's all nearer Kipling's intentions. It's, the creatures carry the spirit of the jungle with them and they're not shiny, pristine creatures who burst into song. These are animals and their animal nature is pretty laid bare, pretty open and honest and yeah, they don't mess around." 5.  SOUNDBITE (English) Andy Serkis, director/actor on when the film will be finished: "We are 10 days away, 10 days away from finishing." (Reporter: So no sleep for another 10 days.") "No. We had to break off to come talk about it, sort of just slightly before the final hurdle you know?" (Reporter: "Are you editing here? What work can you get done here?" "I literally flew over from the U.K. for today and I'm going back tonight, so yeah." STORYLINE: ANDY SERKIS AND BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH DISCUSS THEIR 'JUNGLE BOOK' ADAPTATION, 'MOWGLI' Andy Serkis could've done without a trip to Las Vegas' CinemaCon this week. The British director was on hand to promote "Mowgli" - his live-action reimaging of Rudyard Kipling classic "The Jungle Book." "We are 10 days away, 10 days away from finishing," smiled Serkis. "We had to break off to come talk about it, sort of just slightly before the final hurdle you know?" Serkis was joined in Sin City by actor Benedict Cumberbatch who will provide vocal work for Bengal tiger Shere Khan. "It's seamless between live action, between real environments, between the jungle, the water, and this extraordinary rendition of our performances and animated creatures," said the British actor. "The creatures are very much... It's all nearer Kipling's intentions. It's, the creatures carry the spirit of the jungle with them and they're not shiny, pristine creatures who burst into song. These are animals and their animal nature is pretty laid bare, pretty open and honest and yeah, they don't mess around." The title character will be portrayed by American Rohan Chand, with a jungle of CGI animals voiced by the likes of Serkis himself (Baloo), Christian Bale (Bagheera), Cate Blanchett (Kaa) and Peter Mullan (Akela).

Russian TV channel RT: US order to register as foreign agent hurting
 
05:28
(22 Jan 2018) The head of Russian television channel RT, accused by US intelligence agencies as being a part of a Russian campaign to influence last year's US presidential election, says Washington's order to register as a foreign agent is already hurting. Since the US Justice Department forced the station's US affiliate to register as a foreign agent two months ago, RT has found itself losing access to news events and has suffered damage to its reputation in the market, according to Margarita Simonyan, the combative and passionate head of the 13-year-old operation once called Russia Today. Her indignation at the decision came blazing through in an interview with The Associated Press in RT's central Moscow headquarters on Friday. Known as a pugnacious defender of Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, the executive decried what she calls an American retreat from its core value of freedom of the press. "In the US, the country that has always been lecturing the world about the value of freedoms, of freedom of speech, of everyone's right to speak up, the US has now become a beacon, a leader, in this movement to shut everyone up," she declared. "That's so disappointing." Her argument hinges on whether RT should be treated as a legitimate news and information network, as she insists, or as a clever propaganda arm of the Russian state, as many critics in Europe and the United States contend. RT sees itself as an underdog broadcaster carrying Russian views and perspectives onto the international media scene, similar to US-government-funded Voice of America or Radio Liberty/Radio Free Europe or to the British-government-supported BBC. But US intelligence agencies stated in a recent finding that RT and government-funded news agency Sputnik, for which Simonyan also serves as editor-in-chief, are sending biased reports meant to undermine faith in the US election process, hurt the candidacy of Hillary Clinton and support the campaign of Donald Trump. Similar accusations have been leveled by a recent Democratic Party report on Russian interference, and by the Atlantic Council think tank, among others. Governments in Britain, Germany and France have also complained about RT and its intentions, especially its reporting around European elections. The US government argues that the foreign agent designation is meant only to make clear to RT's audience that it is a Russian station advancing Russia's interests and it is not being blocked or censored on the American market. Simonyan was having none of that. "As a journalist you can't pretend not to understand what it means reputationally and what it means for our journalists, what it means for our work as a journalistic organisation, that now we cannot come like any other news organisation, stand in line and get access to information like any other news organisation," she said, citing a recent decision that revoked RT's accreditation to cover US Congress. Consequences have been real, she said, for RT's staffing and its social media presence. "Some of the people are leaving, because it is tough for them morally to work as a foreign agent, less guests are coming, and more importantly, maybe, even a lot our partners in the US are now telling us that they either have to cancel our agreements or reconsider the agreements, the prices, the conditions of the agreements that we have had for years," she told AP. With its slogan "Question More", slick production values and British- and American-accented presenters and news hosts, the station aims to be a Russian-flavoured competitor for audience eyeballs, promising not to deliver the same old news in the same old way. In the US, its programmes can be accessed on some cable services, the internet, on social media and YouTube.

Giant panda cub makes her first media appearance at Malaysian zoo
 
03:19
(26 May 2018) A baby panda born in a Malaysian zoo five months ago made her public debut on Saturday. The female, which has not yet been named, is the second offspring of giant pandas Liang Liang and Xing Xing, both of which have been on a 10-year loan to Malaysia since 2014. The first cub, a female called Nuan Nuan born in August 2015, was sent back to China last November as part of a deal with Beijing to return cubs born in captivity at age 2. Members of the media watched and filmed the cub in an air-conditioned enclosure at the national zoo through a glass shield. Zoologists said the healthy cub weighs 9 kilogrammes (19.8 pounds) and will face the public later on Saturday following its appearance to the media. Zoo officials say the baby panda's parents broke the world record for a second baby in four years via natural reproduction. Malaysia's national zoo has invested hundreds of thousands of (US) dollars on a panda complex including bamboo trees mimicking their natural habitat, after China loaned the cub's parents to mark 40 years of diplomatic relations with Malaysia. According to WWF (World Wild Fund for Nature), there are 1,864 giant pandas in the wild, living mainly in bamboo forests high in the mountains of western China and subsisting almost entirely on bamboo.

Drone Footage Shows Guatemala Volcano Damage
 
02:01
(6 Jun 2018) Drone footage shot on Tuesday showed the town of El Rodeo in a lifeless state. Houses and trees were covered with thick coat of grey soot as rescue workers were seen on site. On Tuesday, it was clear that the official death toll of at least 70 was sure to climb and fears spread that anyone still stuck in the buried houses was dead and would remain entombed there. A spokesman for Guatemala's disaster agency, Conred, said that once it reaches 72 hours after the eruption, there will be little chance of finding anyone alive.

Syrian flag flying at retaken crossing point at Jordan border
 
02:58
(7 Jul 2018) Syrian soldiers celebrated the recapture of the main border crossing with Jordan on Saturday. Troops captured the Naseeb border crossing a day earlier following a crushing two-week offensive, and after rebels announced they had reached an agreement with Russian mediators to end the violence in the southern province of Daraa and surrender the crossing. State-run media showed troops at the crossing on Saturday, filming themselves and chanting in support of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Syrian state-run news agency SANA said the army deployed at the crossing after combing and clearing it of the remnants of "terrorist groups." It said Syrian army units have also established control over the town of Nuaima in the past 24 hours.   Syrian government forces now control the towns and villages on the eastern side of southern Daraa province, including the villages of Nuaima and Saida, which sits 10 kilometers (6 miles) away from the Naseeb border crossing and links the eastern and western sides of Daraa.

Cyril Ramaphosa leaves parliament as Zuma's exit nears
 
01:37
(7 Feb 2018) South African President Jacob Zuma's exit from power because of scandals appeared to be getting closer on Wednesday, as his deputy, who is expected to replace him, held transition talks with the president. Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa acknowledged a lot of speculation about the status of the president, but said he and Zuma would finish their discussions and report in the coming days to the ruling African National Congress party and the population of one of Africa's biggest economies. The announcement followed several disputed reports that reflected a growing mood of uncertainty over the protracted wait for a resolution to the country's leadership crisis. Zuma's office described a social media report that Russian President Vladimir Putin was going to visit the country this week as "fake" news. It also denied allegations by opponents that he was preparing to fire Ramaphosa. Zuma has been embroiled in scandals for years, paying back some state money following multi-million-dollar upgrades to his private home, being criticized for his association with the Gupta business family accused of looting state enterprises and influencing Cabinet ministers for their own benefit, and now facing the possible reinstatement of corruption charges tied to an arms deal two decades ago. Zuma and the Guptas deny any wrongdoing. Zuma's second five-year term is scheduled to end with elections in 2019, but many ruling party members want Ramaphosa to take over as soon as possible so that the party can try to recover the trust of voters alienated by the president's scandals.

'Icarus' director Bryan Fogel celebrates bittersweet Oscar win for best documentary at Governors Bal
 
02:07
(5 Mar 2018) 'ICARUS' DIRECTOR BRYAN FOGEL CELEBRATES BITTERSWEET OSCAR WIN FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY AT GOVERNORS BALL "Icarus" director Bryan Fogel, whose film helped expose Russia's state-sponsored Olympic doping program, said he was "humbled" after winning best documentary at the Oscars. Speaking at the Academy's post-show party the Governors Ball, Sunday (4 MARCH 2018), Fogel said: "This is an incredible honor and so I'm unbelievably happy but I wanted to acknowledge that in this moment of happiness and winning this award there are real world stakes and there is a human life at stake and there are clean athletes who have been cheated." Fogel's primary source for the documentary was former head of Russia's anti-doping lab, Grigory Mikhailovich Rodchenkov. Since going public with his accusations, Rodchenkov has moved to the U.S., out of fear for his life. "There is a Russian government that continues to not deny all facts and all proof, while they hunt the man who literally brought this information forward," continued Fogel. "And so to win this award and not acknowledge all that didn't feel appropriate. But this is an incredible honor. I'm very humbled. Also speaking on the red carpet were Oscar winners Mark Bridges (best costume design, "Phantom Thread"), Sebastian Lelio (best foreign language film, "A Fantastic Woman") and Gary Rizzo (best sound mixing, "Dunkirk.")

Massive plume of ash shot from boat; night shots of Kilauea volcano lava glow
 
02:35
(21 May 2018) White plumes of acid and extremely fine shards of glass billowed into the sky over Hawaii on Sunday as molten rock from Kilauea volcano poured into the ocean, creating yet another hazard from an eruption that began more than two weeks ago. Authorities on Sunday warned the public to stay away from the toxic steam cloud, which is formed by a chemical reaction when lava touches seawater. Further upslope, lava continued to gush out of large cracks in the ground that formed in residential neighbourhoods in a rural part of the Big Island. The molten rock formed rivers that bisected forests and farms as it meandered toward the coast. The rate of sulphur dioxide gas shooting from the ground fissures tripled, leading Hawaii County to repeat warnings about air quality. At the volcano's summit, two explosive eruptions unleashed clouds of ash, much of which was carried by winds toward the south-west. Scientists said the steam clouds at the spots where lava entered the ocean were laced with hydrochloric acid and fine glass particles that can irrigate the skin and eyes and cause breathing problems. The lava haze, or "laze," from the plume spread as far as 15 miles (24 kilometres) west of where the lava met the ocean on the Big Island's southern coast. It was just offshore and running parallel to the coast, said US Geological Survey scientist Wendy Stovall. Scientists say they don't know how long the eruption will last.

Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and thoughts of migrant children at Radio Disney Music Awards
 
05:31
(23 Jun 2018) AT RADIO DISNEY MUSIC AWARDS, KELLY CLARKSON PAYS IT FORWARD Kelly Clarkson was paying it forward at the Radio Disney Music Awards. The first "American Idol" winner was being honored with an Icon Award at the show held in Hollywood on Friday (22 JUNE) and set to air over the weekend -- but she was more excited about sharing the stage with two young singers hoping to follow in her footsteps. "The Voice" winner Brynn Cartelli was Clarkson's date on the RDMA red carpet, and the latest "Idol" winner Maddie Poppe joined them on-stage later for the award presentation. "It's one of those things where it's like past and present for me," Clarkson said. "And also like I keep telling her like light at the end of the tunnel. Like it might be a hard road and there might be a lot of hurdles, but you can get there. So that's kind of – it's not even about me tonight. I love that they are giving it to me because it's nice to pay it forward a bit, you know? So it's more about them for me." Clarkson also spoke about her two young children, saying she tries to make sure they recognize that they're living a "crazy life." "I think my biggest priority obviously are my children. So we don't ever want one of them obviously to feel like they're lost in the cracks. So we really strive as parents – because we are both very busy parents. So we strive to make sure they feel like they count, they matter, they are loved, they are appreciated, their voices validated," she said. "And explain to them like we have a crazy life. And they get a lot of crazy great opportunities because of it. That's our main focus, is our kids – and then my other kid." Others in attendance at the show included Ludacris, who was performing with Carrie Underwood, and Meghan Trainor, who said she was a "legend" in the eyes of her little cousins, who joined her at the show aimed at kids and tweens. "It means a lot. These kids are the reason why I get to do this and why I have a career. So I owe them everything," she said. Fifteen-year-old actress Jenna Ortega was among the attendees weighing in on the Trump administration's response to illegal immigration, wearing a jacket with the message "I do care and u should too" written on the back. It was a response to First Lady Melania Trump's jacket, worn while en route to visit migrant children in detention centers, emblazoned with the message: "I really don't care, do u?" "I think a lot of people saw what the First Lady wore to visit the migrant children. I honestly think it was poor judgment. And I can't believe that all of her advisers allowed her to wear that to go visit the migrant children," Ortega said. "And I just want to let people know that I care, as many others do. And as the First Lady of the United States, she should too." Ortega, who has roles on "Jane the Virgin," "Stuck in the Middle" and the animated "Elena of Avalor," said she had the jacket made the night before. "Cloak and Dagger" stars Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph said they were "dumbfounded" by the government's actions in recent weeks. More than 2,300 children have been taken from their parents since Homeland Security announced a plan in April to prosecute all immigrants caught on the border. "It's heartbreaking. The fact that it's a conversation and this is something that you have to ask is mind-blowing. But hopefully the things that need to be done get done. That's all we can really do," Joseph said.

Celebrations underway but many still in IS captivity
 
02:09
(18 Apr 2018) LEADIN: Yazidis in Iraq gather to celebrate their new year. But many still wait for news of Yazidi women and girls who were taken by the Islamic State group. STORYLINE: Hundreds gather at the ancient shrine of Lalesh in northern Iraq. It is the central shrine of the Yazidi faith. Here they light candles and make wishes for the new year. They are celebrating the eve of Red Wednesday, as the Yazidi New Year is known. "We are congratulating the Yazidis wherever they are, in Iraq, in Germany, in Armenia, in Georgia, wherever they are we are celebrating with them," says celebrant Shiar Khudeida.   "We hope for a blessed year for them and we pray that this new year will be a blessed year for the whole of Iraq." Yazidis follow a religion with roots in the ancient Zoroastrian faith. They pray to an angel called Melek Taws, provoking the ire of Sunni extremists who have often called them devil worshippers. Thousands of Yazidi were murdered and kidnapped by the extremists in 2014 and about 3,000 are still missing. Many were taken into sexual slavery. "I came here to celebrate the new year and I hope that our girls and sisters will come back from the hands of Daesh (Islamic State group)," says Hatrin Amer. "I hope this year will bring many blessings and a happy life and lots of success for the Yazidis." Yazidi population centres have all been recaptured by Iraqi forces but many of their displaced remain stuck in camps because few public services have been restored in shattered cities like Sinjar and Mosul. Others are wary of the rival militia groups and security forces that are present across northern Iraq.
