    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.'

  • 14/64   U.S. Farmers Fear China Deal Will Leave Them Worse Off Than Before Trade War
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Many producers are alarmed by signs that the administration would accept Chinese purchase target pledges for commodities like soybeans and pork without a promise to lift retaliatory tariffs, said industry representatives, some of whom spoke only on condition of anonymity to avoid consequences for publicly criticizing the administration.  “This is of great concern to producers out here facing another year of tariffs,” said Mark Powers, president of the Northwest Horticultural Council, which represents cherry, pear and apple growers in the Pacific Northwest.  Farmers are unnerved by Trump’s enthusiasm for tariffs and his tendency to pick industry winners and losers, even as he promises in general terms to put “America first” in negotiations with the U.S.’s largest trading partner.

Kallas got 45 votes, short of the 51 votes to form a government and become the country's first female prime minister.  The Reform party was the biggest after the March 3 general election, but former prime minister Ratas blocked her path to power by agreeing a coalition with the conservative Fatherland party and the far-right EKRE group, giving the three parties a majority in parliament.

More than 21 percent of India's 1.3 billion people lived on less than $1.90 a day in 2011, when the last census was taken, according to the World Bank.

  • 29/64   Stop & Shop hit by strike as 31,000 workers walk off job
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    * Talks break down over healthcare, wages and pensions  * Customers respect picket lines at 240 stores in New EnglandThe Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren greets striking Stop & Shop workers while also bringing coffee and donuts on Friday in Somerville, Massachusetts. Photograph: Scott Eisen/Getty ImagesMore than 31,000 employees of the grocery chain Stop & Shop walked off the job across New England last week, after the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) and management reached an impasse in negotiations.At the weekend, as the strikers attracted support from among others Senator Elizabeth Warren and former vice-president Joe Biden, the two sides restarted efforts to find a compromise over healthcare, wages and pensions.Many stores opened on Friday with severely reduced staff and management working registers. In parking lots at the 240 stores affected, longtime customers refused to cross picket lines. At one location in Somerville, Massachusetts, a staffing agency brought in temporary workers to cover missed shifts, much to the chagrin of strikers.Sign up for the US morning briefingIn a video circulated on Facebook, Tyrone Housey, president of UFCW Local 1459 in Springfield, Massachusetts, encouraged union members to ask shoppers not to do business with the company until the strike ends.The strikers come from all roles, from cashiers to bakers, butchers and deli employees. Their three-year contract expired on 23 February. Several local chapters of the union voted to strike. A Stop & Shop spokeswoman, Jennifer Brogan, said the company had been trying to negotiate.“Throughout negotiations, Stop & Shop continuously has been available to bargain, every day, for nearly three months,” she said. “The company’s current offer is substantially enhanced, better for associates than most recent UFCW contract settlements, provides overall pay and benefits that are better than what most of our competitors provide, and represents improvements for our associates.”For Paul Tritto, 59, the strike is about providing the best care for his autistic grandson. An 18-year employee, now a meat manager, Tritto drives more than 40 miles across state lines for his job, in order to support the 16-year-old and his own wife, who is retired and handicapped.“We were actually in the process of getting him on my health insurance,” Tritto told the Guardian, adding that the proposal the company is pushing would drastically increase his monthly contributions.“For a family plan right now,” he said, “the deductible is $2,500. With what they’re pushing, it will go up to $5,000.” He and his wife would pay more than $300 a month for coverage, he said, not factoring in additional care and adding his grandson to the mix.Management is also axing overtime pay on holidays and Sundays, which would mean Tritto would make $20 an hour on Sundays, instead of $30.“I’d be forced to take a part-time job,” he said. “And that takes more time away from my grandson Seth and wife, who can’t drive.”The latest proposal from Stop & Shop includes pay increases for associates and an increase of $2 to $4 on health insurance premiums. The pay increase is 50 cents an hour. According to the union, it would not offset higher healthcare costs.The UFCW national spokeswoman, Erikka Knuti, told the Guardian the average full-time employee would pay $900 in weekly health premiums over three years. Part-timers would pay $600.Monday is day five of a strike workers think could be successful. Kristen Johnson, a 34-year-old deli manager at a store near McGrath Highway in Massachusetts, said the location usually had about $100,000 in sales on an average Saturday.“They’ll be lucky if they make $10,000,” she said, describing customers who have joined strikers, delivered pizza and shared coffee. Despite the cuts proposed by the company, Johnson said she was not considering a move.“We love what we do,” she said, “or else we wouldn’t be here. We love our customers. They’re like our second family. I’m in it for the long haul.”> While @StopandShop's parent company made $2 billion in profits and got a tax cut from the GOPTaxScam, @UFCW workers were getting squeezed by low wages and lousy benefits. We’re not gonna put up with it. UnionStrong. pic.twitter.com/iyDxiyqI0F> > — Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) April 12, 2019Johnson said strikers “loved it” when Warren, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, joined them on the picket line on Friday and urged her audience to not cross it.“This is a company that made $2bn in profits, that then got a fancy tax break in Washington from the Republicans and now wants to squeeze our workers right here in Massachusetts,” she said.Last year, Stop & Shop’s parent company, Ahold Delhaize, reported profits of more than $2bn.Other unions have been supporting the Stop & Shop workers.

Photograph: Scott Eisen/Getty ImagesMore than 31,000 employees of the grocery chain Stop & Shop walked off the job across New England last week, after the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) and management reached an impasse in negotiations.At the weekend, as the strikers attracted support from among others Senator Elizabeth Warren and former vice-president Joe Biden, the two sides restarted efforts to find a compromise over healthcare, wages and pensions.Many stores opened on Friday with severely reduced staff and management working registers. In parking lots at the 240 stores affected, longtime customers refused to cross picket lines. At one location in Somerville, Massachusetts, a staffing agency brought in temporary workers to cover missed shifts, much to the chagrin of strikers.Sign up for the US morning briefingIn a video circulated on Facebook, Tyrone Housey, president of UFCW Local 1459 in Springfield, Massachusetts, encouraged union members to ask shoppers not to do business with the company until the strike ends.The strikers come from all roles, from cashiers to bakers, butchers and deli employees. Their three-year contract expired on 23 February. Several local chapters of the union voted to strike. A Stop & Shop spokeswoman, Jennifer Brogan, said the company had been trying to negotiate.“Throughout negotiations, Stop & Shop continuously has been available to bargain, every day, for nearly three months,” she said. “The company’s current offer is substantially enhanced, better for associates than most recent UFCW contract settlements, provides overall pay and benefits that are better than what most of our competitors provide, and represents improvements for our associates.”For Paul Tritto, 59, the strike is about providing the best care for his autistic grandson. An 18-year employee, now a meat manager, Tritto drives more than 40 miles across state lines for his job, in order to support the 16-year-old and his own wife, who is retired and handicapped.“We were actually in the process of getting him on my health insurance,” Tritto told the Guardian, adding that the proposal the company is pushing would drastically increase his monthly contributions.“For a family plan right now,” he said, “the deductible is $2,500. With what they’re pushing, it will go up to $5,000.” He and his wife would pay more than $300 a month for coverage, he said, not factoring in additional care and adding his grandson to the mix.Management is also axing overtime pay on holidays and Sundays, which would mean Tritto would make $20 an hour on Sundays, instead of $30.“I’d be forced to take a part-time job,” he said. “And that takes more time away from my grandson Seth and wife, who can’t drive.”The latest proposal from Stop & Shop includes pay increases for associates and an increase of $2 to $4 on health insurance premiums. The pay increase is 50 cents an hour. According to the union, it would not offset higher healthcare costs.The UFCW national spokeswoman, Erikka Knuti, told the Guardian the average full-time employee would pay $900 in weekly health premiums over three years. Part-timers would pay $600.Monday is day five of a strike workers think could be successful. Kristen Johnson, a 34-year-old deli manager at a store near McGrath Highway in Massachusetts, said the location usually had about $100,000 in sales on an average Saturday.“They’ll be lucky if they make $10,000,” she said, describing customers who have joined strikers, delivered pizza and shared coffee. Despite the cuts proposed by the company, Johnson said she was not considering a move.“We love what we do,” she said, “or else we wouldn’t be here. We love our customers. They’re like our second family. I’m in it for the long haul.”> While @StopandShop's parent company made $2 billion in profits and got a tax cut from the GOPTaxScam, @UFCW workers were getting squeezed by low wages and lousy benefits. We’re not gonna put up with it. UnionStrong. pic.twitter.com/iyDxiyqI0F> > — Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) April 12, 2019Johnson said strikers “loved it” when Warren, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, joined them on the picket line on Friday and urged her audience to not cross it.“This is a company that made $2bn in profits, that then got a fancy tax break in Washington from the Republicans and now wants to squeeze our workers right here in Massachusetts,” she said.Last year, Stop & Shop’s parent company, Ahold Delhaize, reported profits of more than $2bn.Other unions have been supporting the Stop & Shop workers. The Teamsters Council 10, for example, is cutting off supplies like produce and perishables and stopping trash pick-up.

    A 75-year-old man has been killed by the large flightless bird he owned after he fell on his property in Florida.Police found the man badly wounded by a cassowary when they were called to his property, where the victim kept exotic animals, on Friday.Cassowaries are known as the “world’s most dangerous bird”, according to San Diego Zoo.Alachua County Sheriff Department said the man was probably injured by the bird’s 4-inch, dagger-like claws.Police are investigating the incident but say initial information suggests it was a “tragic accident”.The victim, named as Marvin Hajos, was taken to hospital by paramedics, where he later died from his injuries.He was reportedly breeding the birds, which are native to Australia and New Guinea.“It looks like it was accidental,” deputy chief Jeff Taylor told the Gainesville Sun newspaper.“My understanding is that the gentleman was in the vicinity of the bird and at some point fell. When he fell, he was attacked.”Police added that the cassowary involved in the attack “remains secured on private property at this time.”A woman who identified herself as the victim’s partner told the Gainesville Sun that he had died “doing what he loved” but chose not to make any further statement.Cassowaries are similar to emus and are among the largest bird species in the world, weighing up to 60kg and reaching up to 6ft in height.San Diego Zoo said cassowaries “can slice open any predator or potential threat with a single swift kick”, due to their long claws.The birds are not traditionally raised in the US but are sought after by collectors.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission lists the cassowary as Class II wildlife which can “pose a danger to people” and require a permit for ownership.Agencies contributed to this report

    This is perhaps the most aggressive illustration of a new Russian rhetorical approach. In a move that would raise eyebrows even by Cold War standards of political saber-rattling, the Russian Embassy in Washington seemed to threaten America’s F-35 fighter with Vietnam-era propaganda footage.(This first appeared earlier in the year.)Last month, the official handle of the Russian Embassy in the US tweeted the following update:> 'If a Russia... ever was to see an F-35 inside its airspace', we would love to send Chief of Staff of the @usairforce Gen.
