Trump may be celebrating the Mueller report, but scrutiny of the president is far from over

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 11:20

Trump may be celebrating the Mueller report, but scrutiny of the president is far from overDonald Trump has declared that he has been completely exonerated by special counsel Robert Mueller in the investigation into whether he was the Muscovian candidate for the White House in the last presidential election. It would be fully understandable for Trump to be popping a champagne cork or three if he were a drinking man. Trump’s critics, the number of which has steadily grown in the course of his extraordinary tenure, had hoped that the special counsel would hand what would essentially be a death sentence to what they consider a malign and toxic presidency, the worst in America’s recent history.

Apple News+ is a $9.99 subscription service for magazines and newspapers

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 11:17

Apple News+ is a $9.99 subscription service for magazines and newspapersApple's "show time" event kicked off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET today, and Tim Cook has taken the stage. While we are excited to see what Apple has in store for the world of streaming entertainment, the first announcement today is about Apple News. As expected, Apple is making use of its acquisition of Texture's magazine subscription service and add magazines to its new service, which it has dubbed Apple News+. Over 300 magazines will be featured in Apple News+, such as National Geographic, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair, and more. In addition to magazines, the service will also feature some of the world's top newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal. Apple News+ will cost $9.99/month. All of the premium content can be found in the new News+ tab, which lives at the bottom of the Apple News app. You can save your favorite magazines as well, so that you won't ever miss a new issue. Apple also showed off covers with moving images, and demonstrated how the magazines have been successfully ported to both the small screen of the iPhone and the larger display of the iPad. Apple also announced that it will not share demographic or subscriber information with publishers, which explains why some major names didn't make the cut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im5c5WR9vMQ As Apple explained during its keynote, it would cost more than $8,000 to subscribes every magazine and newspaper in Apple News+ separately. This is "the only place" where you can pay for access to all of them, plus, you can share your subscription with your family, so you won't all have to pay for your own accounts. And the first month is free. Apple News+ will be available in the US and Canada first, and reach Australia and the UK in the fall. If you want to try out Apple News+, you'll be able to do so later today after an iOS update rolls out.


Israel returns fire on Gaza as Trump signs historic decree recognising its sovereignty over Golan Heights

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 11:02

Israel returns fire on Gaza as Trump signs historic decree recognising its sovereignty over Golan HeightsIsrael launched strikes on Hamas targets in Gaza on Monday hours after a rocket from the Palestinian enclave hit a house near Tel Aviv and wounded seven people, leading to fears of a severe escalation. The retaliatory strikes began around the same time as Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, held a joint press conference with US President Donald Trump in Washington. Mr Netanyahu addressed the attack during the White House press conference, saying: "Israel will not tolerate this. I will not tolerate this. And as we speak ... Israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression." The on-camera appearance ended with Mr Trump signing a decree formally recognising Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a territory which Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war. The move, which formalises a commitment Mr Trump made last week, appeared to give Mr Netanyahu a boost ahead of the closely contested April 9 Israeli elections. The two leaders show off a proclamation recognising Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights Credit: Reuters Condemning the attack from Gaza, Mr Trump said Israel has the "absolute right" to defend itself. "Today, aggressive action by Iran and terrorist groups in southern Syria, including Hezbollah, continue to make the Golan Heights a potential launching ground for attacks against Israel - very violent attacks," Mr Trump said. "This should have been done numerous presidents ago". Speaking from the White House, the Israeli leader told Mr Trump "Israel has never had a better friend than you".  Mr Netanyahu said he would cut short his US visit and return home after his meeting with Mr Trump to deal with the aftermath of the Tel Aviv attack. The flare-up comes at a highly sensitive time for Israel, which holds elections on April 9. The attack on Gaza has so far involved at least six strikes, including five in and around Gaza City and one in southern Gaza between Rafah and Khan Yunis, according to an Israeli security source. There are no reports so far of any casualties in Gaza. A police officer inspects the damage to a house hit by a rocket in Mishmeret, central Israel Credit: AP Earlier on Monday, a rocket from Gaza hit a house in Mishmeret, around 12 miles north of Tel Aviv, in a rare long-distance strike. Seven Israelis were injured lightly by burns and shrapnel in the attack, including a six-month-old child. Six of them were members of the same British-Israeli family. Rocket fire from Gaza at that distance is rare, the rocket would have had to travel some 75 miles. Israel's army said the rocket was fired by Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip, from the Rafah area. A Hamas official has denied the group was behind the rocket, evoking the possibility it was caused by "bad weather". But Israel warned of a firm response and announced it was sending two additional brigades to reinforce the Gaza area and carrying out a limited call up of reservists. Israel's military said in a statement it "has begun striking Hamas terror targets throughout the Gaza Strip."

"We call on the international community to establish a special international tribunal in northeast Syria to prosecute terrorists," the Syria Kurdish administration said.


Duchess of Cornwall reveals excitement over new royal baby during Havana walkabout with Prince Charles

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 10:56

Duchess of Cornwall reveals excitement over new royal baby during Havana walkabout with Prince CharlesCamilla, the Duchess of Cornwall revealed her excitement at the imminent arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby during a hectic walkabout through Havana’s old town with Prince Charles. Amid frenzied scenes, American tourist Mimi Ricketts asked the 71-year-old royal: “Are you excited about the new baby joining your family?” The beaming duchess, dressed in sky blue, told the 60-year-old from St Louis, Missouri: “Yes very much so”. Meghan is due to give birth next month. US tourist Mindy Whittle also got the chance to meet royalty and said after her encounter: "I love her (Camilla's) dress. We shook hands - do I have to pay extra for that?" The couple drew excited crowds on their visit to the Cuban capital Credit: Jane Barlow/PA Pandemonium broke out as the royal couple embarked upon their walkabout in the UNESCO World Heritage site as security guards used a heavy handed approach to control the media amid thronging crowds. Unusually for a royal engagement, no barriers were put up so as not to restrict tourists paying a visit to one of the capital’s most popular hot spots. Arriving at El Templete, the site of the first mass held in Havana in 1519, the prince and the duchess were met by the city’s official Historian Eusebio Leal, in the year that the city celebrates its 500th Anniversary. As temperatures hit 27 degrees Celsius, Camilla put up a parasol to protect her from the blazing sun as the walking tour took in a visit to the Palacio de los Capitanes Generales, the former official residence of Cuba’s 65 colonial Governors (Captains General). Prince Charles laid a wreath when he arrived in Havana on Sunday Credit: Phil Noble/Reuters Home to the Museum of the City of Havana (Museo de la Ciudad), the Prince unveiled a new statue of William Shakespeare as the latest addition to the area’s commemorating notable literary figures. The royal couple also visited a female run bicycle repair and rental business while Charles,70, peeled off to visit Escuela Taller, a workshop which trains young people in restoration techniques. Camilla stopped in at Hogar Materno Infantil, Havana’s largest maternity home and Plaz de San Francisco to view a performance by La Colmenita, a children’s theatre. They concluded their tour at the Church and Convent of St. Francis of Assissi where they will view a digitised display from the British Library and watch a rehearsal by all-female Chamber Music Group, Camerata Romeu. Built in Havana at the end of the sixteenth century and used for worship by the English during the year they occupied Havana. It is now used for concerts. Many of the buildings Havana Old Town have recently been restored to their former glory. El Templete commemorates the site of the first mass and town council of San Cristóbal de la Habana, celebrated on November 16, 1519. It includes the commemorative ceiba tree, sacred in many religions, which is visited by local people every year in search of prosperity and well-being.

Israeli military says it has started bombing Gaza after rocket strike

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 10:55

Israeli military says it has started bombing Gaza after rocket strikeIsrael says it is striking ‘Hamas terror targets’Rocket strike had destroyed house in Israel, wounding seven Smoke rises above buildings in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip during reported Israeli strikes on Monday. Photograph: Said Khatib/AFP/Getty Images Israel’s military said it had begun striking “Hamas terror targets” across the Gaza Strip, retaliating for an earlier rocket attack that wounded seven people in a neighbourhood north of Tel Aviv. “The [Israeli Defense Forces] has begun striking Hamas terror targets throughout the Gaza Strip,” the army said in a statement. Israel’s military said its fighter jets attacked multiple targets across the strip, including a five-story building in central Gaza City it said was a Hamas Interior Security office. The Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu cut short a trip to the US on Monday following the rocket attack and had vowed to “respond forcefully”. The army said later it was reinforcing troops along the Gaza frontier and calling up reserves. “Israel will not tolerate this. I will not tolerate it,” Netanyahu said in the White House standing alongside Donald Trump. “As we speak, Israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression.” Trump described the Hamas rocket attack as “horrific” and added: “The US recognises Israel’s absolute right to defend itself.” Gaza’s Hamas leaders went into hiding, fearing widespread airstrikes on their bases and other sites in the enclave – the usual response after regular rocket launches during the past year. Hamas and Israel have fought three conflicts in the past decade, and battled in dozens of minor flare-ups since the last one in 2014. With little to show for any previous violence, neither side has expressed interest in full-fledged war. However, the strike obliterated the home of a British-Israeli family and comes during a period of heightened tension in Israel and the Palestinian territories. With a general election two weeks away, Netanyahu is under pressure from political opponents to hit back hard against militants, even as he as he has been counseled by military advisers of the futility of a fresh conflict. With opinion polls showing Netanyahu running neck and neck with his main opponent, Benny Gantz, the Israeli leader has sought to dismiss him as a “leftist” who is weak on security issues. Separately, this weekend marks the anniversary of a year-long protest movement along Israel’s frontier that its troops have responded to with lethal force, killing more than 180 people and shooting 6,000 others. Hamas, which backs the rallies, is expected to call for thousands to attend, while Israel has said it will continue its live fire policy against what it calls “violent riots”. Those protests were intended, in part, to pressure Israel and Egypt to lighten a punishing decade-long blockade on the 140 sq mile territory that has led to a humanitarian crisis and virtually imprisoned much of the population. But neither Israel nor Egypt have significantly changed their policy. Meanwhile, Hamas faces its own internal dissent against recent tax hikes and dire living conditions, and has forcefully suppressed local demonstrations during the past week. An Israeli military spokesperson said Monday’s rocket had a range of 75 miles, making it one of the furtherest strikes ever carried out by militants in Gaza. “I have a simple message for Israel’s enemies,” Netanyahu said. “We will do whatever we must to to defend our people, and defend our state. After this meeting I will return home ahead of schedule, to lead the people of Israel, and the soldiers of Israel.” As a result of Netanyahu’s early return home, a dinner with Trump was cancelled as well as Netanyahu’s scheduled address to Aipac, the pro-Israel US lobby group. In an apparent attempt to de-escalate the situation a Hamas official, speaking to the Agence France-Presse news agency on condition of anonymity, denied the group was behind the rocket launch, and even suggested the projected was automatically fired by mistake following “bad weather”. The prime minister’s visit to Washington had been seen as an attempt to highlight his close and fruitful relationship with Trump before the election. Trump on Monday signed a proclamation formally recognising Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a plateau Israel captured from Syria in 1967. The proclamation declared the Golan Heights to be a unique case for security reasons. “Today, aggressive acts by Iran and terrorist groups, including Hizballah, in southern Syria continue to make the Golan Heights a potential launching ground for attacks on Israel,” the document stated. “Any possible future peace agreement in the region must account for Israel’s need to protect itself from Syria and other regional threats. Based on these unique circumstances, it is therefore appropriate to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.” “This was a long time in the making. It should have taken place many decades ago,” Trump said. Netanyahu said it was a “truly a historic day”, that “translates our military victory into a diplomatic victory”. He said that the Golan was “invaluable to our defences” and claimed that Israel had taken the territory “in a just war of self-defence”. He added: “The Jewish people have roots in the Golan goes back thousands of years.” The Syrian foreign ministry called the US proclamation a “blatant aggression” on its own sovereignty and territorial integrity. The ministry said the US move represents the “highest level of contempt for international legitimacy”. Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov told secretary of state Mike Pompeo that the US intention to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan would result in a violation of international law. UN security council resolutions have opposed the annexation of land acquired by force, and rejected as “null and void” Israeli attempts to annex the area unilaterally.


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

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 10:54

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

How much did the Mueller report cost?Robert Mueller has concluded his 22-month investigation, and while the special counsel’s full report remains under wraps, some elements of the probe are known to the public – including its cost. From the day the special counsel was appointed, his office has released statements of expenditures every few months detailing its spendings. Based on the published statements, plus an estimate of what is to come in the fourth statement, it appears likely that the Mueller investigation itself will have cost around $17m.
