    Golocal247.com news

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday mooted the possibility of renaming Istanbul's Hagia Sofia museum as a mosque, in comments during a television interview. Erdogan, who is a former mayor of Istanbul, is campaigning for votes for his Justice and Development Party (AKP) ahead of municipal elections on March 31. The former church and mosque, now a museum, often sparks tensions between Christians and Muslims over Islamic activities held there including the reading of verses from the Koran or collective prayers.

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

    Golocal247.com news

    Israel 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."

  • Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was carrying an iPhone when she was arrested last year

    Golocal247.com news

    The tech industry certainly has its share of scandals, but the drama surrounding Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou certainly takes things to the next level. This past December, Wanzhou was arrested in Canada (at the behest of the United States) on charges of wire fraud and improper business dealings with Iran. Wanzhou may ultimately be extradited to the U.S. as China, not surprisingly, has vehemently denied the allegations on Wanzhou's behalf. As Huawei executives would have you believe, the charges are simply a means to hinder the company's growth.The legal case involving Wanzhou is still playing out, but recently released court documents include a surprising revelation regarding the gear Wanzhou had in her possession when she was arrested. Originally made public by the Twitter account theBreakerNews, it turns out that Wanzhou had a penchant for Apple products.Upon her arrest, Wanzhou had a MacBook Air, an iPad Pro, and an iPhone 7 Plus in her possession. She was also carrying a Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design which was likely her primary device. Still, it has to be somewhat embarrassing for an executive of a company looking to dethrone Apple to be apprehended with a slew of Apple products.No you might be naturally thinking: "So she had a few Apple products on her, what's the big deal?" Well, if we go back just a few months, you may recall that two Huawei employees who were manning the company's Twitter account were demoted after they sent out a celebratory New Years tweet from an iPhone. The tweet was promptly deleted once word began to spread, but the higher-ups at Huawei were quite displeased and also cut the salary of the employees in question.Further, an internal Huawei memo obtained by Reuters at the time revealed that Huawei executives believed "the incident caused damage to the Huawei brand."All that said, Wanzho's penchant for Apple products isn't a good look.

    A Palestinian journalist was acquitted on appeal over an investigative report about corruption in the Gaza Strip Monday, according to Amnesty International and a campaign group. In a 2016 report for Al-Araby TV, Hajar Harb alleged that doctors were writing false medical reports to let people leave Gaza for treatment, one of the few reasons Israel allows Palestinians out of the blockaded strip run by Hamas. The appeals court in Gaza "acquitted journalist Hajar Harb of all charges and closed her file," he said.

  • Lindsey Graham Vows to Investigate Anti-Trump Bias in Special Counsel Probe

    Golocal247.com news

    Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham on Monday vowed to investigate the origins of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe in order to expose possible anti-Trump bias on the part of the Department of Justice officials who opened the investigation.During a press conference marking the release of Attorney General William Barr's summary of the Mueller report, Graham called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate whether DOJ officials overreached in investigating Trump due to their personal and political hostility to him.“By any reasonable standard, Mr. Mueller thoroughly investigated the Trump campaign. You cannot say that about the other side of the story. And what I hope Mr. Barr will do is understand: for the country's sake appoint somebody outside the current system to look into these allegations, somebody we all trust, and let them do what Mr. Mueller did,” Graham said.The South Carolina Republican vowed that, regardless of whether a special counsel is appointed, the Judiciary Committee would investigate to what extent DOJ officials relied on the uncorroborated Steele dossier when applying for a warrant to surveil Carter Page during his time as a national-security adviser to the Trump campaign.“What role did the dossier play? Was it the primary source of the information given to the court, was it supplemental, was its outcome determinative? I want to hear from Mr. [Bruce] Ohr why he warned people that you might not want to rely on Christopher Steele,” Graham told reporters when asked what specific events his committee plans to investigate. “I want to know the role James Comey played in this process. I want to find out: Was the only reason you recused yourself was because of the tarmac meeting with Loretta Lynch?” Graham added, referring to Bill Clinton's June 2016 meeting with then-attorney general Loretta Lynch on an Arizona airport tarmac.Republicans have repeatedly cited the meeting in arguing that Lynch was compromised by the Clintons and, as a result, instructed the FBI not to pursue charges related to Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. Former FBI director James Comey admitted during subsequent congressional testimony that Lynch instructed him to refer to the Clinton email probe as a “matter” when announcing that the DOJ would not pursue charges.Senior DOJ officials relied on information provided in the Steele dossier as part of their FISA warrant application to surveil Page, and did not inform the court that the dossier was partially funded by a law firm working on behalf of the Clinton campaign. Graham went on to call the unsubstantiated dossier “garbage,” pointing out that a number of its allegations — including the claim that Michael Cohen went to Prague to meet with Russian hackers during the campaign — have been disproven.

    An Ethiopian Airlines executive questioned whether Boeing had told pilots enough about "aggressive" software that pushes a plane's nose down, a focus of investigation into a deadly crash in Ethiopia this month. Comments by the CEO and vice president of the airline this weekend will fuel a debate over the safety of Boeing's 737 MAX aircraft, two of which have crashed in similar circumstances in the last five months. Ethiopian Airlines, Africa's most profitable airline, has robustly defended its own safety record, training and procedures after the crash on March 10 that killed 157 people.

  • Apple rethinks the credit card and unveils the Apple Card

    Golocal247.com news

    As far as Apple events go, today's "Show Time" event is particularly intriguing, if not downright exciting. While events like WWDC are predictable in the sense that we know we're going to see updates to iOS and watchOS, Apple today is poised to announce a number of new initiatives in markets it historically has no experience in, including news subscriptions and TV production. While Apple can undoubtedly make killer hardware and best-in-class software, the notion of Apple rolling out its own TV shows, for example, is something that would have seemed like a joke even a few years ago. Suffice it to say, today's Apple event marks an interesting turning point for the company. The keynote from today's event is already underway and Tim Cook,  having already introduced Apple News Plus, just a few moments ago starting talking about Apple Pay. Notably, Cook said that there were 10 billion transactions in 2019 alone and that Apple Pay support at transit terminals will be coming soon. All of that was a prelude, though, to Tim Cook introducing a brand new credit card dubbed Apple Card. The card is made out of titanium with an accompanying app that resides inside the Wallet app. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAZiE9NtRfs As for what Apple Card brings to the table, users can sign up for it right on their iPhone and can start using it in just a few minutes. The card presents a rather straight forward interface that allows users to keep track of how much they owe how much they've spent, and more. Apple notes: > Customers can sign up for Apple Card in the Wallet app on their iPhone in minutes and start using it with Apple Pay right away in stores, in apps or online worldwide. Apple Card gives customers easy-to-understand, real-time views of their latest transactions and balance right in Wallet, and Apple Card support is available 24/7 by simply sending a text from Messages.Every time you use the Apple Card, you'll get 2% cash back immediately back into your account. It will all be funneled into a section on the app called Daily Cash. Further, if you buy an Apple product, you get 3% cash back. > Customers will receive a percentage of every Apple Card purchase amount back as Daily Cash. Unlike other cash back rewards, Daily Cash is added to customers’ Apple Cash card each day and can be used right away for purchases using Apple Pay, to put toward their Apple Card balance or send to friends and family in Messages. Every time customers use Apple Card with Apple Pay, they will receive 2 percent Daily Cash. Customers will also get 3 percent Daily Cash on all purchases made directly with Apple, including at Apple Stores, on the App Store and for Apple services.With Apple Card, Apple is also aiming to be more transparent about the fees and high interest rates associated with other cards. In fact, Apple is doing away with late fees, annual fees, international fees, and over limit fees altogether. Apple boasts that it will charge users a uniquely low-interest rate and that users won't incur a penalty when they miss a payment. Apple notes that its goal is to provide an interest rate that is "among the lowest in the industry." Apple Card will also present users with a number of payment options designed to help users pay less interest. > As a way to pay less interest, Apple Card will also suggest paying a bit more every month and offers the flexibility to schedule more frequent payments."Apple Card is designed with privacy in mind," Apple's Jennifer Bailey said. With that said, Apple will never know what you bought or where you bought it. Apple, as previously rumored, will be partnering with Goldman Sachs to help launch the card, with MasterCard doing the payment processing on the back-end. The physical card is also intriguing in its own right. It has no card number on it, no CVV security code on the back, and not even an expiration date. All of that information is safely stored in the accompanying Wallet app. Notably, purchases made with the physical card will net users 1% cash back instead of 2% if they use their device.

    Donald Trump has described Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion between his election campaign and Russia as an “illegal takedown”, while suggesting Democrats should now be investigated. The president claimed the report represented a “total exoneration”, when in fact Mr Mueller specifically said that while his probe did not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also did not exonerate him. Mr Mueller did not make a determination on whether Mr Trump committed obstruction of justice in the Russia probe, and attorney general William Barr and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein determined the evidence gathered by Mr Mueller was insufficient.

  • Prince Charles pays respects to revolutionary hero in landmark visit to Cuba

    Golocal247.com news

    Prince Charles paid his respects to one of Cuba’s revolutionary heroes after becoming the first royal to visit Cuba in 60 years with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.  Within an hour of touching down in Havana on Sunday night, the royal couple’s first official engagement was to lay a wreath at the monument to José Martí, Cuba’s national figurehead who became a symbol of the country’s bid for independence against Spain in the nineteenth century. They landed in a British government RAF Voyager after spending the morning in Barbados, where they attended a service at St Michael’s Cathedral in Bridgetown. After being greeted at Havana’s International Airport - also named after José Martí - by the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Rogelio Sierra Diaz, Charles and Camilla were taken to the eponymous memorial. Although he died in battle against the Spanish, leading a reckless cavalry charge at the battle of Dos Ríos in 1895, Martí was a poet and essayist as well as revolutionary thinker and political theorist.  Prince Charles attends a wreath-laying ceremony at the Jose Marti monument in Havana Credit: AFP At 109 metres, his memorial - a star-shaped tower made of Cuban marble - is said to be the largest monument in the world to a writer. The prince and duchess stood at the base of the memorial flanked by a guard of honour while a military band played the two national anthems: first Cuba’s - words by José Martí, naturally - and then Britain’s. As the couple stood there they were overlooked by the images of two heroes of the Cuban revolution behind them. One huge wire sculpture on the side of a government building depicted Che Guevara, another the revolutionary commander Camilo Cienfuegos.

In Cuba, it seems, visiting dignitaries do not get to lay their own wreaths, but instead simply untie the ribbon around them. The couple were then given a tour of the museum dedicated to Martí inside the monument. Curator Eva Maria Diaz told him about the writer’s life, and the history of Havana, which prompted Charles to point out that Britain had once occupied the city during the eighteenth century - “briefly”. As they left he told her: “I’ve learnt a great deal about José Martí.” Saying that he would like to spend more time in Cuba, he joked: “You might get fed up with us very quickly.” He added: “I am sorry to have dragged you in on a Sunday. I hope it is not inconvenient for you.” She said afterwards: “He knew that Havana was under British power in the eighteenth century. It was a very brief period. “He said that he would like to have more time to continue the visit. He was especially interested inJosé Martí's life and work. I told him that Martí's writings were published in 27 books, including literary, political and journalistic works.”

  • Oklahoma top court clears way for Purdue, J&J, Teva to face opioid trial

    Golocal247.com news

    The Oklahoma Supreme Court's decision was a win for the state's attorney general, whose case is set to be the first to face trial of roughly 2,000 lawsuits nationally seeking to hold opioid manufacturers responsible for contributing to the epidemic. Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter's 2017 lawsuit accuses Purdue, Johnson & Johnson & Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd of engaging in deceptive marketing that downplayed the risks of addiction associated with opioid pain drugs while overstating their benefits. The trial delay bid came as Purdue, owned by members of the wealthy Sackler family, was exploring filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to address potential liabilities stemming from the lawsuits, people familiar with the matter have told Reuters.

  • Syria's return to Arab League not on summit agenda: spokesman

    Golocal247.com news

    The Arab League said Sunday it was not planning to discuss reinstating Syria's membership at a summit later this month, more than eight years after suspending it as the country descended into war. The pan-Arab bloc, which is set to hold its annual summit in Tunisia on March 31, froze Syria's membership in November 2011 over a bloody government crackdown on protestors. "The issue of Syria's return to the Arab League has yet to be listed on the agenda and has not been formally proposed," said the League's spokesman Mahmoud Afifi.
