  • Utah agrees to drop parts of disputed 2011 immigration law


    (Reuters) – Utah has agreed to roll back key provisions of a 2011 state law allowing police to check the immigration status of anyone suspected of being undocumented, a civil liberties group said on Tuesday. As part of a deal settling a legal challenge to the law, the state agreed police will not be allowed to detain or stop a person merely to check immigration status or to transport him or her to federal officials based on officers’ suspicions, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said in a statement. “Utah’s decision to settle this case sends a clear message to states and cities across the country that they have no business stopping or detaining people just because of suspicions about their immigration status,” said Jennifer Chang Newell of the ACLU, which was a party to the agreement The ACLU argued in a 2011 lawsuit that the law illegally interfered with federal authority over immigration matters …

  • One Chinese company makes one-third of the world’s cigarettes


    China is the world’s largest consumer and producer of tobacco products. When it comes to the tobacco business, bigger has long been considered better in China. The numbers are staggering: China is the world’s largest tobacco maker and consumer, boasting roughly 365 million smokers. The industry supports 3.6 million farmers, four million tobacco retailers and half a million related employees. The industry lynchpin is China National Tobacco Corp., a state-owned monopoly that makes more than one-third of the world’s cigarettes, and produces 43% of tobacco globally, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Beijing has long benefited from this arrangement, reaping $16 billion a year in industry tax payments, according to an academic paper published in Environmental Health and Preventive Medicine. But now, there are signs that Beijing is taking a fresh look at the health consequences of this addiction, and asking how public health can be improved without toppling a giant, …

  • Curry scores 40, Warriors beat Heat


    Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – Golden State star Stephen Curry scored just 23 points over his previous two games. He erupted for a season-high 40 on Tuesday. Curry shot 8-of-11 from behind the arc and contributed seven assists and six rebounds to lead the Warriors to a 114-97 win over the Miami Heat. “I had some guys set me some screens that helped me get going,” Curry said. “It was a big night.” Klay Thompson added 24 points for the Warriors, who improved to 6-1 on the road this season with their sixth straight win overall. Andrew Bogut was questionable to play with an orbital contusion that he suffered on Sunday against Oklahoma City, but he powered through the injury and contributed eight points, 10 rebounds and five assists. Chris Bosh had 26 points and nine boards to pace Miami, which was without Dwyane Wade (hamstring) for the seventh straight game. “They played their best basketball …

  • HK policemen arrested over beating


    26 November 2014 Last updated at 11:58 Ken Tsang, a social worker and member of the Civic Party, was taken away by plainclothes policemen Seven Hong Kong policemen have been arrested in connection with the beating of a pro-democracy protester.

Civic Party protester Ken Tsang was filmed being led away in handcuffs and beaten for several minutes. Local TV network TVB later aired footage of his assault, and Mr Tsang’s lawyer said that the beatings had continued after he was taken to a police station. The authorities immediately moved to suspend the officers and launched an investigation shortly after the clip was aired. On Wednesday, the police said Mr Tsang had promised to show up …

  • 5G is on the cards for Huawei and partnered South Korean service providers


    Huawei Sanqi Li, CTO of China-based Huawei Products and Solutions, said the company has entered into close relationships with three South Korean telecommunication companies — SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus — to establish 5G networks. Though there are no official standards governing 5G connectivity yet, early reports have pointed to speeds as much as 1000 times faster than current 4G networks by 2020. At the closing ceremony of the Startup Nations Summit 2014 in Seoul, the Huawei CTO said the company would be working closely with the service providers on 5G, while it was still undecided as to whether it would build an RD centre in South Korea. “Though it is in its early stage, we are considering the possibility of building RD centre in South Korea,” Li said after the summit’s closing ceremony. Kevin Ho, president of Huawei’s Handset Product Line, said that the company was planning to build its 16th RD lab …

  • South Korea to fly medical workers to Europe if infected fighting Ebola


    SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea said on Wednesday that Britain had agreed to evacuate any South Korean medical workers who may be infected with the deadly Ebola virus while working at a British-run clinic in Sierra Leone for treatment. Seoul will send a team of 10 medical workers next month to work at the new treatment center in Goderich outside the capital of Sierra Leone, Freetown where they will join British and American volunteer personnel. Under an agreement with Britain, an EU-operated plane will fly any infected South Korean medical worker to any of a pool of EU hospitals equipped to treat Ebola for treatment as if the person was a citizen of any EU state, its foreign ministry said. Australia announced a similar agreement with Britain earlier this month in which London had given assurances that any Australian staff infected with Ebola would be treated as if they were a British citizen. Canberra had …

  • 8 Times celebs sex-shamed porn stars, er pop stars


    Bette Midler Bette Midler is the most recent celeb to throw shade at young female singers who make music videos with strong sexual content. In an interview with the Telegraph, Midler said, “It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it’s silly beyond belief, and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it. I wish they’d stop. But it’s not my business, I’m not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that’s what you’ve got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold.” 5 Times Ariana Grande’s “Love Me Harder” video make us cringe Sinead O’Connor Remember in October 2013, when Sinead O’Connor penned a letter to Miley Cyrus after Cyrus credited O’Connor for inspiring Cyrus’ controversial “Wrecking Ball” video?

  • Grand jury’s decision in Ferguson not defeat, it’s opportunity for reform


    Nov. 24, 2014: Protesters gather near a memorial in the middle of the street. (AP Photo/David Goldman) Many people are enraged that Darren Wilson has not been indicted for having shot Michael Brown.  I do not begrudge them their fury, but I urge them to see this as an opportunity rather than a defeat, and to consider what would have happened had the result been different. To put it simply, if Wilson had been indicted, his prosecution would have eliminated any hope of meaningful reform.  ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT The very premise of the criminal law is that the system which created the law is fundamentally sound.   The very premise of the criminal law is that the system which created the law is fundamentally sound.   In this country, the criminal law is invoked as a solution for disorder, complete in and of itself.

  • Fifty years later, American skating team claims Olympics bronze


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Fifty years after Vivian Joseph and Ronald Joseph skated at the Innsbruck Olympics, the American pair on Tuesday officially claimed the bronze medal. Two years after the 1964 Games, the International Olympic Committee had awarded the Joseph siblings the bronze medal after disclosing that the West German pairs team had violated their amateur status by signing a professional contract. Canadians Debbi Wilkes and Guy Revell moved up one spot to the silver medal, while the Josephs, who had finished fourth in the competition, claimed bronze. But in 1987, the IOC said Germans Marika Kilius and Hans-Jürgen Bäumler were “rehabilitated” and quietly re-awarded their silver medals. The IOC never explained the medal consequences of its decision. On Tuesday, the IOC announced that the Germans and Canadians are each silver-medal winners, while the Americans are the bronze medalists in the pairs event. “An Olympic medal is the ultimate sports symbol of hard work, sacrifice …
