    The 46-year-old actress is now revealing the agony she went through before receiving a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) last August.'Ever since my son was born, I was in an MS flare-up and didn't know, and I was giving it everything to seem normal,' Blair told Robin Roberts in an interview that aired Tuesday on 'Good Morning America.'

    Jeb Bush's love of Apple products has been widely documented, and the Republican presidential candidate continues to wear his Apple Watch on the campaign trail.

  • 13/64   World's largest plane makes first flight over California
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    The white airplane called Roc, which has a wingspan the length of an American football field and is powered by six engines on a twin fuselage, took to the air shortly before 7 a.m. Pacific time (1400 GMT) and stayed aloft for more than two hours before landing safely back at the Mojave Air and Space Port as a crowd of hundreds of people cheered.  'We are incredibly proud of the Stratolaunch team, today’s flight crew, our partners at Northrup Grumman’s Scaled Composites and the Mojave Air and Space Port.'  The plane is designed to drop rockets and other space vehicles weighing up to 500,000 pounds at an altitude of 35,000 feet and has been billed by the company as making satellite deployment as 'easy as booking an airline flight.'  Saturday's flight, which saw the plane reach a maximum speed of 189 miles per hour and altitudes of 17,000 feet, was meant to test its performance and handling qualities, according to Stratolaunch.

    The ECB’s deposit rate has been below zero for almost half a decade, and weaker economic growth in the 19-nation euro area has pushed back expectations for a rate increase.  Banking associations, however, have become increasingly vocal about detrimental side effects on profitability, and policy makers have agreed to study measures to blunt the impact, potentially by exempting some portion of deposits in a so-called tiering system.  It’s one that the ECB previously rejected, partly out of concern on its complexity.

    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire warned on Friday that Europe was ready to hit back at any US tariffs against Airbus as he pleaded for an 'amicable solution' to the long-running dispute.  'If we were to be hit again by unjustified and unjustifiable US sanctions, Europe would be ready to respond in a united and strong way,' the minister said after his meeting with his US counterpart Steven Mnuchin.  'All this would be bad for growth and bad for American and European prosperity,' he said at a press conference on the sidelines of the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

  • 39/64   Sudan protesters defy curfew after army topples president Omar al-Bashir
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir was deposed by the country's military on Thursday, but protesters against his iron-fisted rule defied a night-time curfew to rally against the military "coup".  In a televised address, Sudan's defence minister said the military would rule the country directly for a two year transition period before fresh elections.  General Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibnouf, who is also a vice president and was seen as an ally of Mr Bashir, said the long-serving dictator was in a “safe place.” "I announce as minister of defence the toppling of the regime and detaining its chief in a secure place," Gen Ibnouf said. He declared a three-month state of emergency and imposed a one-month 10 pm curfew. He said airspace would be closed for 24 hours and border crossings sealed until further notice. Mr Bashir is a former solider who ran a brutal dictatorship after coming to power in an Islamist-backed coup in 1989. He is a pariah in many countries and is also wanted by the international war crimes tribunal for atrocities in Darfur.

But Gen Ibnouf’s early afternoon announcement was greeted with unease by the opposition movement that has brought tens of thousands of protesters onto the streets in recent weeks. Although demonstrators had called on the army to intervene against the president, the defence minister is deeply unpopular among the opposition and widely seen as a Bashir ally. Hundreds of Sudanese protesters maintained their sit-in outside army headquarters in Khartoum for the fifth day in a row Credit: Stringer/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images Several protesters on the streets of Khartoum told The Telegraph ahead of the announcement they would not accept him as a replacement for Bashir. Minutes before the announcement, Alaa Salah, the 22 year old woman who has become an icon of the protests, tweeted: “We are waiting for a statement by the army. We will only accept a transitional civilian government composed of the forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change. No other plan will be acceptable.” She later added: "The people do not want a transitional military council. Change will not happen with Bashir’s entire regime hoodwinking Sudanese civilians through a military coup. We want a civilian council to head the transition." Thousands of protesters staged a sit-in for the sixth night running outside Khartoum army headquarters as the military council's curfew began. The army had earlier warned protesters not to defy the curfew. Well after nightfall, tens of thousands beat drums, sang and chanted slogans against the armed forces and Ibn Ouf.  "The first one fell, the second will, too!" protesters shouted. And: "They removed a thief and brought in a thief!" Washington said Khartoum should "exercise restraint and to allow space for civilian participation within the government". "The Sudanese people should determine who leads them and their future and the Sudanese people have been clear and are demanding a civilian-led transition," State Department spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters. The European Union urged the army to carry out a "swift" handover to civilian rule. The Sudanese Professionals Association, the umbrella group of trade unions that has coordinated the protest movement, had earlier warned that it would not accept an internal military coup.

Sudan— Alaa Salah (@iAlaaSalah) April 11, 2019 They issued a statement vowing to remain in the streets until the "regime steps down completely and power is handed to a civilian transitional government." Demonstrations against Mr Bashir's rule initially broke out in the northeastern town of Atabara after the price of bread tripled in December. Protests quickly spread to other cities and morphed from an outpouring of indignation at economic conditions into demands for Mr Bashir to step down. The regime responded with a brutal crackdown, using tear gas, rubber bullets, and live rounds to break up demonstrations and arrested ringleaders and even doctors who treated injured protesters.  The movement culminated in massive protests in the capital, beginning on April 6, when opposition leaders called a “one million person” march towards the army’s headquarters to mark the anniversary of the bloodless coup that overthrew Gaafar Nimeriy, another president who faced mass discontent. In conscious emulation of 1985, the SPA called for a sit-in outside army headquarters to call on the military to protect the demonstrators. Sudan uprising, in pictures The first sign of a rupture within the regime came when soldiers inside the compound intervened to prevent security personnel from the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) clearing the demonstration on Monday and Tuesday.   Several people were killed in the clashes, which prompted fears of a wider conflict between the multiplicity of armed forces, security agencies, and militia groups Mr Bashir set up to challenge one another and consolidate his rule.  Thousands sang and danced on Thursday morning when the army said on state media it would be making an important announcement, in what many took as a sign the revolution had succeeded. Later in the morning, several officials pre-empted the military and told the media that Mr Bashir had been arrested. As the morning wore on, officials said that all political prisoners would be released, but it was not clear when. Meanwhile, troops were deployed at key points around the capital and soldiers were seen entered the headquarters of Mr Bashir's Islamic Movement, the main component of the ruling National Congress Party. Some protesters surrounded and entered houses belonging to prominent Bashir allies in Khartoum, and there were unconfirmed reports of crowds storming buildings belonging to NISS. The Alliance for Freedom and Change, which has been involved in supporting the protests, urged the people "not to attack" government and private properties as they awaited  the army’s announcement. "We are calling on our people to control themselves and not to attack anybody or government and private properties," the Alliance for Freedom and Change said in a statement. "Anyone found doing this will be punished by law. Our revolution is peaceful.”

  • 41/64   Comey on Barr’s ‘Spying’ Claim: ‘I Have No Idea What He’s Talking About’
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Former FBI director James Comey took issue Thursday with Attorney General William Barr's recent claim that U.S. intelligence agencies “spied” on the Trump campaign.Comey, addressing a cybersecurity conference in California, drew a distinction between “spying” and the authorized surveillance that was conducted on the Trump campaign.“I have no idea what he’s talking about so it’s hard for me to comment,” Comey said. “When I hear that kind of language used, it’s concerning, because the FBI and the Department of Justice conduct court-ordered electronic surveillance. I have never thought of that as spying.”Comey was responding to Barr's Wednesday testimony before the House Appropriations Committee, in which the attorney general surprised Democratic lawmakers by stating that the surveillance conducted on the Trump campaign in order to identify possible links to Russia qualified as “spying.”“I think spying did occur,” Barr told the panel. “But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I am not suggesting that it wasn’t adequately predicated. . . . I am not suggesting those rules were violated, but I think it is important to look at that. And I am not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly.”“I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal — it’s a big deal,” he added.Congressional Democrats have chastised Barr for insinuating that the surveillance conducted on the Trump campaign, which relied in part on a FISA warrant supported by the unsubstantiated Steele dossier, was in some way politically motivated, as many of their Republican colleagues have long alleged. They contend that the counterintelligence investigation, which also relied on confidential informants, was an appropriate response to the threat of Russian election-meddling.Comey on Thursday acknowledged that, as a two-time attorney general with decades of government experience, Barr is entitled to the benefit of the doubt, but expressed surprise that he would accuse U.S. intelligence agencies of “spying” on a presidential campaign.“If the attorney general has come to the belief that that should be called spying, wow,” Comey said. “That’s going to require a whole lot of conversations inside the Department of Justice. But I don’t know what he meant.”Barr told lawmakers Wednesday that he has formed a team to investigate whether the counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign was tainted by bias. The team will likely examine the degree to which FBI and Department of Justice officials misled the FISA court about the origins of the Steele dossier, which was commissioned by a firm contracted by the Clinton campaign, in order to obtain a warrant to surveil Carter Page. Page had left the Trump campaign by the time the surveillance began, but the warrant likely entitled authorities to surveil his prior communications with fellow Trump campaign officials.

    At $6.99 per month (which goes down to $5.83 if you pay for the whole year), Disney+ is a no-brainer. It's a lot cheaper than competing video streaming services, including Netflix and HBO, and offers a massive catalog of titles from both Disney and Fox, including exclusive content that you won't find anywhere else.The big question after Disney's event the other day was whether Disney+ would come to Apple's revamped Apple TV app, which will also include Apple's own streaming service, Apple TV+. Disney did not address the matter during its event, but CEO Bob Iger said in an interview afterward that Apple TV would get Disney+.During the event, Disney only said that consumers will be able to subscribe to Disney+ on Roku and PlayStation, without naming other companies. That's because Disney hasn't made deals with "all of them" according to Iger. The new Disney+ app will "in all likelihood be available through traditional app distributors, Apple being one of them," Iger told Bloomberg.It's unclear at this time whether users will be able to subscribe to Disney+ from Apple devices or whether they'll have to get the service via an internet browser before logging in inside the app. The Disney+ app will not be available until fall, so we'll have to wait and see how it'll work on Apple devices.Recently, Netflix decided not to allow new subscribers to sign up for the service via an Apple device, a move meant to prevent sharing a cut of the revenue with Apple. Iger also touched on the fact that he's still an Apple board member. He told Bloomberg that he recused himself from meetings whenever the topic came up. He said that streaming "has not been discussed all that much" because it was relatively small and nascent.

    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Fox Media channels have mentioned freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez every day for about six weeks, as reported by media watchdog group Media Matters. Fox, headed by Rupert Murdoch, is best known for providing right-leaning news and political talk shows, like Justice Jeanine and Hannity. The New York representative was mentioned at least 3,181 times on the network between February 25 and April 7.President Trump is known to frequently watch Fox during his ‘executive time’. Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, took to Twitter to respond. “Fox News brought me up 3,000+ times in *6 weeks.* That’s how hard they’re fighting against dignified healthcare, wages, & justice for all; and turning their firepower on the youngest Congresswoman in history to do it. Too bad for them, cause we don’t flinch. ForThePeople.”Ocasio-Cortez is referring to her championship of what Fox sees as radical liberal causes, like the fight for a liveable minimum wage, Medicare for all, and free college. Media Matters says that “Hosts and guests smear and misrepresent Ocasio-Cortez’s agenda, caricaturing it while painting it as dangerous, far-left socialism”. The watchdog notes how Fox has repeatedly invalidated Ocasio-Cortez due to her age, calling her a little girl, yet claim she’s taken over the democratic party. Fox has also claimed she’s pushing her “Latin American values” on the United States, despite the fact that Ocasio-Cortez is Puerto Rican and from the Bronx.

    Guaido, the leader of the opposition-controlled National Assembly who in January invoked Venezuela's constitution to assume an interim presidency, has called on the military to abandon Maduro amid a hyperinflationary economic collapse made worse by several nationwide blackouts in the past month.  Guaido has been recognized as Venezuela's rightful leader by the United States and most Western countries, who agree with his argument that Maduro's 2018 re-election was illegitimate.  The civilian militia, created in 2008 by the late former president and Maduro mentor Hugo Chavez, reports directly to the presidency and is intended to complement the armed forces.

The Finns are running close second with 16.3 percent support, after scoring rapid gains since the start of this year when a series of cases of sexual abuse of minors by foreign men emerged.  A strong result for the Finns Party could bolster a nationalist bloc threatening to shake up EU policy-making.

  • 48/64   Autism diagnoses at record high in US state and no one knows why
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    According to new data from Rutgers University, New Jersey preschoolers are being diagnosed with autism at the highest rate in the United States. The National Autistic Society defines autism as a lifelong, developmental disability that affects how a person communicates and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.It is not a disease, but rather, a spectrum disorder. Due to the nature of this disorder, people with autism all have different experiences.As reported by the Center of Disease Control, one in 35 New Jersey children have been diagnosed with autism.The NAS says that “All autistic people share certain difficulties, but being autistic will affect them in different ways.”Diagnosis rates of autism have jumped from one percent in children born in 1992 to three percent in children born in 2010. Currently one in every 23 four-year-old boys has been diagnosed with autism in New Jersey, a 43 per cent jump from four years ago and echoing the autism gender disparity.The national average for autism diagnosis in America is 13 in every 1,000 children. New Jersey’s average is 28 per every 1,000 children. The director of the New Jersey portion of the Rutgers University study, Walter Zahorodny, said: “There’s no letup. I really don’t understand why the rate is going up in this way.” It’s been discovered that certain elements, like older parents, premature birth, and being one of multiple children in one birth increase the likelihood of an autism diagnosis, but it is yet to be determined why. While the greatest influence appears to be unknown environmental factors, one thing is for certain, rising autism rates are definitely not correlated to vaccination.

    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    Four people have been injured following a shooting outside a nightclub in the Australian city of Melbourne.  The incident happened shortly before 3.20am local time (6.20pm BST).  "Investigators believe multiple people were shot outside a nightclub near Little Chapel Street and Malvern Road about 3:20 am," local police said in a statement. It did not give any more details including the condition of the victims, but said the shooting occurred in Melbourne's Prahran district. Local media reports that four were injured, with two in critical condition.   "The exact circumstances are still being established," police said. Mass shootings are rare in Australia, which has strict gun laws introduced after 35 people were killed in 1996 at Port Arthur in Tasmania.
