“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will travel to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping this week, as world’s two most-populous countries seek to reduce tensions after a tense border dispute last year. The ‘informal summit’ between Xi and Modi will be held Friday and Saturday in Wuhan, the capital of the central province of Hubei, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday at a news conference with India External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. The meeting is part of an intensifying dialogue between the two leaders whose countries comprise more than one-third of the world’s population and 18 percent of global gross domestic product.” (04/23/18)

Source: Daily Mail [UK]

“The first wave of the migrant caravan has hit the US border, with a group of about 50 seeking asylum at the Tijuana crossing into California. The group of 50 Central American migrants who set out from southern Mexico in late March arrived in Tijuana, Mexico on Wednesday, after splintering off from the original caravan of 1,500. ‘Since yesterday, some began to cross into the United States to turn themselves in from Tijuana and request asylum. We understand more of (the migrants) will do the same,’ said Jose Maria Garcia, director of Juventud 2000, an organization dedicated to assisting migrants. He said more migrants, many of whom are stranded in Mexico’s central states, are expected to arrive in the coming days. The splinter groups headed toward the US have been undeterred by President Donald Trump’s threat to deploy the National Guard along the border, after Trump called California’s contribution to the mission a ‘charade.’ (04/22/18)

“Syrian government forces used warplanes, helicopters and artillery on Sunday to pound districts of the capital held by the Islamic State group, in a bid to enforce an evacuation deal reached with the militants earlier in the week. The militants agreed to give up their last pocket in southern Damascus on Friday but have yet to begin surrendering to government forces and relocating to IS-held areas elsewhere in the country. State-run al-Ikhbariya TV showed thick gray smoke billowing from the IS-held Hajar al-Aswad neighborhood on Sunday, and government warplanes streaking overhead amid heavy bombardment of the area.” (04/22/18)

“This hasn’t been the best week for WikiLeaks, to put it mildly. Coinbase has shut off the WikiLeaks Shop’s account for allegedly violating the cryptocurrency exchange’s terms of service. In other words, the leak site just lost its existing means of converting payments like bitcoin into conventional money. While Coinbase didn’t give a specific reason (it declines to comment on specific accounts), it pointed to its legal requirement to honor ‘regulatory compliance mechanisms’ under the US'[s] Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.” [editor’s note: Coinbase is what it would look like if cryptocurrency could get cancer – TLK] (04/2/18)

“Kane Gamble, the 18-year-old who gained access to data of top US intelligence officials, was sentenced to two years in prison by a UK court. The judge said Gamble engaged in ‘politically motivated cyber terrorism.’ Eighteen-year-old hacker Kane Gamble was sentenced to two years in a youth detention facility at London’s Old Bailey, the central criminal court for England and Wales. The British youth had admitted to successfully targeting several top intelligence officials during the Obama era, including then-chief of the CIA, John Brennan, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and Obama’s deputy national security adviser, Avril Haines. Gamble was 15 and 16 years old at the time. … Gamble, who is one of the founders of hacking group ‘Crackas with Attitude,’ gradually gained access to US law enforcement and intelligence networks and shared some of the information through WikiLeaks and Twitter.” (04/20/18)

“Twitter vowed to stop Russian disinformation on its social network and banned hundreds of puppet accounts and bots. Now, a Russia-based cybersecurity company is caught up in the fray. Kaspersky Lab founder Eugene Kaspersky wrote an open letter on Friday, calling out Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over an advertising ban on the social network. In the letter, Kaspersky revealed that Twitter banned Kaspersky Lab from advertising on its platform in February, telling the cybersecurity company that its business model ‘conflicts with acceptable Twitter ads.’ … ‘You’re only shooting yourself in the foot when you cater to the geopolitical noise and start refusing to promote material on false pretenses,’ [Kaspersky] said in his letter. Kaspersky blames the same ‘geopolitical noise’ for the US government’s ban on Kaspersky Lab products.” (04/20/18)

The deal reached between Iran, the United States and five other world powers put curbs on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. Trump has called the agreement one of the worst deals ever negotiated.” (04/21/18)

“India’s Cabinet has approved the introduction of the death penalty for those who rape children, amid uproar over a series of high-profile cases. The change to the country’s penal code applies to those convicted of raping a child under the age of 12. There have been nationwide protests in recent weeks over the gang rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl. The government has come under fire for not doing enough to prevent sexual-assault cases, many involving children. A number of serious crimes in India carry the death penalty, but raping a child was not among them until now. Nearly 19,000 cases were registered in India in 2016 — more than 50 each day.” (04/21/18)

Source: USA Today

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions told the White House he might resign if President Trump fires the deputy attorney general overseeing the investigation into Russian election meddling, according to The Washington Postand The Wall Street Journal, each citing unnamed sources. Sessions told White House counsel Donald McGahn in a phone call last weekend that he would consider quitting if Trump fired Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Post reported. At the time, Sessions was concerned Trump was close to dismissing Rosenstein because the president was furious about the FBI raid on the office of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. According to media reports, Trump discussed the possibility of firing Rosenstein with senior administration officials because Rosenstein approved the April 9 raids. Sessions did not mean to raise the possibility of his resignation as a threat, but ‘rather wanted to convey the untenable position that Rosenstein’s firing would put him in,’ a source told the Post.” [editor’s note: Whatever it takes, put the elf back on the shelf – SAT] (04/20/18)

17) Alaska Airlines adopts tougher policy for emotional support animals
Source: Raw Story

“Responding to a rash of incidents involving animals on planes, Alaska Airlines plans to impose new requirements for passengers flying with emotional support animals. Starting May 1, the Seattle-based carrier will require passengers who want to travel with emotional support animals to provide proof that the animal is healthy, well-behaved and is needed to support the flyer during the flight. The change comes soon after Delta and United Airlines both adopted similar requirements, which took effect March 1. Delta and Alaska both have cited a recent surge in incidents involving animals on planes. Delta said it adopted the new policy in response to an 84 percent increase in animal incidents since 2016, including animals urinating, defecating, biting, barking and lunging on planes. A Delta passenger was mauled by a 50-pound dog on a flight from Atlanta to San Diego last year. Alaska carries about 150 emotional support and service animals daily and has been noting problems almost weekly.” (04/21/18)

Source: San Francisco Chronicle

“Massachusetts family is looking for a new preschool for their 4-year-old daughter because her current school has barred use of the term ‘best friend.’ Christine Hartwell says her daughter, Julia, appeared sad recently when she came home from the Pentucket Workshop Preschool in Georgetown. The little girl told her mother she was upset because her teacher told her she couldn’t call one of her classmates her ‘best friend.’ School officials did not comment. But, in a letter to the Hartwells they said, it had been their experience that the use of the term ‘best friend,’ even when used in a loving way, can lead some children feeling excluded.” [editor’s note: The stupid just gets deeper; if you are not part of an “in crowd clique” you have no other option, but to befriend another fellow outcast as your “bestie” (oh wait, now I see what they’ve done…) – SAT] (04/21/18)

“President Trump Saturday said that he is considering a ‘full pardon’ for boxing’s first black heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson, after being urged to do so by ‘Rocky’ actor Sylvester Stallone. Trump said that Stallone had called him and told him about Johnson, and that he is now considering a posthumous pardon. Stallone is a Trump supporter and attended his New Years’ Eve Party in 2016, according to The Associated Press. ‘[Johnson’s] trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial,’ Trump tweeted. ‘Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!’ Johnson, born in Galveston, Texas, was the target of racial resentment, particularly after he defeated white boxer James Jeffries in the 1910 ‘Fight of the Century,’ a bout that sparked race riots. Three years later he was convicted by an all-white jury of violating the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport a woman across state lines for ‘immoral’ purposes.’ (04/21/18)

It was resisted by liberal Kennedys and right-wing Kochs alike. Despite its environmental benefits, the project also was persistently criticized as a noncompetitive boondoggle with outrageous power costs. The death knell of America’s first would-be offshore wind farm was arguably most felt in New Bedford, Massachusetts. That city, despite being the richest seafood port in the United States, has long been beset by high unemployment from the decline of its mills.” (04/20/18)

“President Trump has now completed his first year in office. The Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate have now had a year to work with a Republican president. What is so significant about that is that it is only the fourth time since the end of World War II and the end of absolute Democratic control of the federal government under Franklin Delano Roosevelt that the Republican Party itself obtained absolute control of the government. … no matter how many times Republicans recite their conservative mantra and mention the Constitution, federalism, the people, natural rights, and limited government in their platform, their actions show that they don’t believe a word of what they’re saying or writing.” (04/20/18)
