  • Washington Post Publisher Blasts Trump’s Response to Khashoggi Murder news

    The publisher of the Washington Post blasted President Trump’s response to the Saudi-state-sponsored assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday. “President Trump’s response to the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a betrayal of long-established American values of respect for human rights and the expectation of trust and honesty in our strategic relationships,” publisher Fred Ryan said in a statement released Tuesday. Ryan’s reaction came just hours after Trump released a statement indicating he would not pursue further punitive measures against Saudi Arabia beyond the sanctions imposed earlier this month against 17 individuals believed to have been involved in Khashoggi’s assassination at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

  • Airbnb removes listings in West Bank settlements news

    Home-renting company Airbnb Inc said on Monday that it would remove listings in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, enclaves that most world powers consider illegal for taking up land where Palestinians seek statehood. "We concluded that we should remove listings in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank that are at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians," a statement on the Airbnb website said. "Our hope is that someday sooner rather than later, a framework is put in place where the entire global community is aligned so there will be a resolution to this historic conflict and a clear path forward for everybody to follow." An Airbnb spokesman said the decision, affecting some 200 listings, would take effect in the days ahead. There was no immediate response from the government of Israel, which captured the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war, nor from Palestinian authorities. Some 500,000 Israelis live in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, areas that are also home to more than 2.6 million Palestinians. Oded Revivi, mayor of the West Bank settlement of Efrat and a representative of the umbrella settler council Yesha, described the Airbnb decision as contrary to its mission, as stated on the website, of "help(ing) to bring people together in as many places as possible around the world". "When they make such a decision, they get involved with politics, which ... is going to defeat the actual purpose of the entreprise itself," he told Reuters.

  • Trump administration calls U.S. judge's asylum ruling 'absurd' news

    Trump cited an overwhelmed immigration system for his recent proclamation that officials will only process asylum claims for migrants who present themselves at an official entry point along the U.S.-Mexico frontier. The Justice Department on Tuesday said it was "absurd" that Tigar allowed civil rights groups to have the ability "to stop the entire federal government from acting so that illegal aliens can receive a government benefit to which they are not entitled." The asylum ruling came as thousands of Central Americans, including a large number of children, are traveling in caravans toward the U.S. border to escape violence and poverty at home. "We look forward to continuing to defend the Executive Branch's legitimate and well-reasoned exercise of its authority to address the crisis at our southern border," the Justice Department said.

    Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn faces being fired this week after being arrested in Japan over allegations of financial misconduct, the firm said Monday, in a stunning fall from grace for one of the world's best-known businessmen. Ghosn's arrest and his likely dismissal from Nissan, as well as possibly from Mitsubishi and Renault, sent shockwaves through the auto industry, where he is a towering figure, credited with turning around several major manufacturers. Nissan's board will meet Thursday to decide his fate, and Mitsubishi said it would propose he be dismissed as chairman "promptly." Renault said its board would meet "shortly", after Ghosn was detained over allegations including underreporting his income.

  • Jonestown massacre: 40 years later

    “Drinking the Kool-Aid” is a phrase bandied about regularly in corporate life, especially when someone wants to take a dig at people with a cult-like belief in a business philosophy or those who fanatically follow a misguided leader. Nov. 18 marked the 40th anniversary of the mass murder-suicide of more than 900 people. Most of them were Americans who were members of a California-based cult called the Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ, run by the Rev. Jim Jones, and most died by drinking cyanide-laced Flavor Aid, which led to the Kool-Aid saying.

  • Chicago hospital shooting: Gunman dead after killing three, including police officer news

    At least three people, including a police officer, were killed at a Chicago hospital on Monday during a shooting rampage that began with an argument in the car park. The violence only ended when police engaged in a shootout with the gunman inside Mercy Hospital. "We have four deceased individuals: police officer, two female staff employees at the hospital, and the offender," police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told journalists. The gunman killed the first victim - a woman who was in a "domestic relationship" with him - during an argument in the car park, then fired at police when they got to the hospital, and ran inside, Mr Johnson said. Additional police - including SWAT officers - arrived at the scene, and "engaged the offender for several minutes in the hospital, with gunshots being fired by the offender and by the police," he said. During the shootout, the gunman killed a second woman when she emerged from a lift, Mr Johnson said. The shooter was also fatally wounded, but it was unclear if he killed himself or was killed by police. The first victim died during an argument in the car park Credit: Scott Olson/Getty Images North America Officer Samuel Jimenez, who joined the Chicago police force last year, died during the gun fight, officials said. The 28-year-old was married with children and the second Chicago officer killed in the line of duty this year. "There’s no doubt in my mind that all of those officers who responded were heroes and they saved a lot of lives, because we just don't know how much damage he (the gunman) was prepared to do," Mr Johnson said. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said: "This tears at the soul of our city. It is the face and consequence of evil." Patients described being alarmed by the sound of gunshots outside Mercy Hospital and seeing a man apparently walking with a woman in the car park before shooting her three times in the chest. "Once she fell to the ground, he stood over her and shot her three more times," bystander James Gray told reporters, adding that the attack played out "like a movie scene." TV footage showed terrified patients and staff filing out of the hospital into a car park with their hands in the air after officers flooded the area. Police and firefighters salute an ambulance carrying the body of Officer Samuel Jimenez Credit: Armando L. Sanchez/ Chicago Tribune Patient Hector Avitia told the local CBS television affiliate he was with his wife waiting for test results when he saw a gunman dressed in black fire on someone on the ground several times in the car park. "Then almost immediately, an officer was already coming in an SUV, and (the assailant) exchanged fire at them and then reloaded and shot the person on the ground again," another witness said. "And then he made his way into the hospital and more shots were fired." The shooting followed a series of recent high-profile gun rampages that have fuelled calls for gun control measures in a country plagued by gun violence. Less than two weeks earlier, a gunman killed 12 people in a California music bar packed with college students. That came after the worst anti-Semitic attack in modern US history, when a gunman opened fire on congregants at a synagogue in the US city of Pittsburgh on October 27. Samuel Jimenez died responding to the incident Bypassers alerted to the latest incident spoke of hearing between six and nine gunshots that initially sounded like construction noise. "I am scared as hell. I have never been so scared, I hear of shootings going on every day at people's workplaces, but not where I work at," an employee of the hospital's family clinic told the ABC affiliate. Mercy, founded in 1852, has locations throughout Chicago and provides outpatient treatment and acute inpatient care, boasting doctors who are leaders in their field. Another hospital employee quoted by the Chicago Tribune said she was in her office when a notice came over a public address system telling those in the hospital to lock their doors. "I don't know what happened," the unnamed employee told the Tribune. "They told us to run, so we did." Gun murders per 100,000 residents Chicago has in recent years earned an unwelcome distinction for its violence. From 2015 to 2017 the city registered nearly 1,900 murders - a period during which the next-closest city, Baltimore, registered around 1,000. However, the city is not in the top ten for murders nationwide, per capita. St. Louis in Missouri has had the nation's highest murder rate since 2014, with 66.1 murders per 100,000 people in 2017, according to the FBI’s most recent yearly statistics, released in September. It was followed by Baltimore (55.8 per 100,000), Detroit (39.8 per 100,000), New Orleans (39.5 per 100,000) and Baton Rouge, Louisiana (38.3 per 100,000). Chicago ranked 14th among cities with at least 100,000 people in 2017. Its 653 murders, measured against a population of more than 2.7 million, translated to a murder rate of 24.1 homicides per 100,000. That was less than half the rate in St. Louis and Baltimore and below the rates of cities including Cleveland; Memphis, Tennessee; and Newark, New Jersey.
