Neil Diamond says he has Parkinson's, retires from touring
 
02:16
(23 Jan 2018) Neil Diamond is retiring from touring after he says he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Days shy of his 77th birthday, the rock legend is canceling his tour dates in Australia and New Zealand for March. He was on his 50th anniversary tour. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer offered his "sincerest apologies" to those who planned to go to his shows and says he plans to still write, record and work on other projects "for a long time to come." Diamond's numerous hits include "Sweet Caroline," ''America," ''Love on the Rocks" and "Hello Again." Diamond turns 77 on Wednesday and will get the lifetime achievement award at Sunday's Grammy awards.

Sean Penn: Bradley Cooper remake of 'A Star is Born' is astonishing
 
02:54
(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz. The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version). A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance. One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years." "The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody." Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein." Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story." A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

02:37
(26 Jul 2018) MCCARTNEY RETURNS TO ROOTS WITH GIG AT LIVERPOOL'S CAVERN CLUB Sir Paul McCartney is going back to where it all began – The Cavern Club in Liverpool. On Thursday afternoon (26 JULY 2018), the Beatle will perform an exclusive free gig at the famous club on Mathew Street, credited as the birthplace of the Fab Four.

The Cavern Club played host to The Beatles nearly 300 times in the early 1960s and became known as the center of Liverpool's rock and roll scene. The original club closed in 1973, later reopening after extensive redevelopment in 1984. McCartney will take to the stage at 2pm local time Thursday (1300GMT). Free tickets for the event are available from Liverpool's Echo Arena box office and are limited to one per person.

Taraji P Henson talks about her engagement and how she met her fiance as Terrence Howard and Jussie
 
04:13
(15 May 2018) TARAJI P. HENSON: IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT WITH FIANCE KELVIN HAYDEN Taraji P. Henson was all smiles Monday (14 MAY 2018) on the red carpet, basking in the glow of her recent engagement. The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden on Mother's Day. "I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. I just didn't know when. That surprised me. He just did it," said Henson, as she attended an annual event in New York where Fox promotes its new TV lineup to advertisers. The actress said she was introduced to Hayden by her makeup artist three years ago -- and it was love at first sight. "She was like, 'You need to go out. You need to meet somebody. You're too fly. You're too amazing.' I was like, 'I don't know.' She's like, 'You're not gonna meet him at home. You need to go out.'" The makeup artist arranged a party full of eligible bachelors for Henson to mingle with. "I remember I was like, 'You better show me the pictures of some of these guys because I don't want to embarrass you and I feel weird doing this anyway but I'm gonna do it," she recalled. "She kept showing me his picture and it was like a close-up and I remember I zoomed into his eyes and I was like, I felt a spark. And I was like, 'Wow, something about his eyes are so gentle.' And you know how they say you can fall in love at first sight from a picture? That's exactly what happened so when we got to the actual event, I met everybody, I shook all the other guy's hands and I literally was looking for him and when he walked up to where I was it was like people parted like the red sea, a light came on, I heard angels and he reached out to shake my hand and we danced and we talked and we were hanging out every day since," she laughed. Henson says her "Empire" co-stars are thrilled with the news. "Jussie came down to my room and screamed and did backflips. Terrence said some amazing things about my fiance today in interviews because he's known him since we started dating and he's just happy. They're all really happy for me," she said. Howard says Hayden must be special for Henson to choose to be with him. "Watching so many people try and court her and the integrity that she showed. She's always had a motto. I've never known any person that she's worked with that's ever been able to go on a date with her, you know, she's that secure about maintaining her integrity so for her to let Kelvin in I'm like, wow. That's a big move. That's a big move right there for her." Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their new schedules to advertisers in New York this week.

Duchess of Sussex's cookbook colleagues celebrate the royal
 
04:45
(20 Sep 2018) DUCHESS OF SUSSEX'S COOKBOOK COLLEAGUES CELEBRATE THE ROYAL At a reception at Kensington Palace to celebrate the launch of a charity cookbook, attendees praised Meghan Markle. "Together: Our Community Cookbook" is the first solo project for Markle as a member of the royal family.    Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, hosted the reception beside her mother, Doria Ragland, and husband to support the cookbook, which  was inspired by Markle's visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen in North Kensington. Its release is aimed at raising money for the victims of London's Grenfell Tower fire. Guests at the launch event included Intlik Alsaiegh, originally from Baghdad, and Jennifer Fatima Odonkor, who was born and raised in London. The two shared their experiences of spending time with the Duchess in the Hubb kitchen. "She's like one of us. She's in the kitchen cutting things, cleaning. It's part of love. It's love. It's love. And together we did a lot," recalled Alsaiegh. "She said, 'I don't know London. I came from America and I come between to know more about London.' I really enjoyed it and we really enjoyed the time with her. When she comes she kisses everybody. She is very simple. Even for the child, she (mimes kissing) - we love this." "She's got a big heart," echoed Odonkor. "She's come and she just wants to share with everyone. What she came and experienced is who she is and she just wants to share. That's who she is. So yeah, that's why we're sitting here today celebrating, celebrating being together and sharing and caring and eating and enjoying."    The book features recipes from women in the community who prepare food to help and heal. The dishes include coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala, caramelized plum upside-down cake and spiced mint tea.    The 2017 Grenfell Tower fire killed 72 people and prompted nationwide calls for tightening building codes and increasing firefighting capabilities for large apartment blocks.

Confrontations in Paris as fuel protests escalate; water cannon
 
01:52
(24 Nov 2018) Police deployed tear gas and a water cannon against chanting protesters in Paris on Saturday as marches continued against rising fuel taxes and Emmanuel Macron's presidency. Footage showed one protester being dragged on the ground by riot police. Tensions have been mounting around the grassroots movement that drew more than a quarter-million people a week ago to protests across France, from Provence to Normandy and in between. Paris alone deployed some 3,000 security forces, notably around tourist-frequented areas like the Champs-Elysees, after an unauthorised attempt last week to march on the presidential palace. During the past week, two people have been killed and hundreds injured, posing big challenges to Macron. Authorities are struggling because the movement has no clear leader and has attracted a motley group of people with broadly varying demands. The protesters call themselves the "yellow jackets" for the neon security vests that drivers are required to keep in their vehicles. Macron has defended the fuel taxes as necessary to reduce France's dependence on fossil fuels, but promised to lay out new plans Tuesday to make the "energy transition" easier.

Friend Says Cruz He Knew Was 'Nice Person'
 
03:08
(16 Feb 2018) A high school senior from Majory Douglas High School recalls a very different Nikolas Cruz, the accused gunman in the mass shooting in Florida. Ethan Trieu says he became friends with Cruz in sixth grade, but they had grown apart. "The Nick I knew like before all this, he was a nice person to me. That's how I remember him," said Trieu. Cruz is accused of killing 17 people on Wednesday during a shooting rampage at the school. Trieu says Cruz changed after the death of his father and didn't really have anyone to turn to. "We all should have been there for him and he had no one to go to. And I feel sorry for him. But I mostly feel sorry for the victims of what happened." Trieu who stopped by a memorial for the victims called the shooting "completely wrong and disgusting." Robert Snyder also visited the makeshift memorial with his son. He said laws need to change and called on Congress to get its act together.

03:02
(30 Nov 2018) A police van was set alight, another overturned as a "yellow jackets" protest in Brussels on Friday turned violent. Police used water cannon to disperse protesters in an area near Prime Minister Charles Michel's office. Brussels city police spokeswoman Ilse Van De Keere said  more than 300 people were thought to be involved. Around 60 people were arrested for disturbing public order. Michel has said he is willing to talk with some of their leaders. Protesters wearing the high-visibility vests that have become a uniform for the movement blocked city streets with pieces of scaffolding. The protest caused traffic chaos in the Belgian capital. The demonstrators are angry about high taxes and living costs as a movement that started in France two weeks ago gains traction across the border.

Water cannon, barricades, arrests at Paris protest
 
03:56
(1 Dec 2018) Protesters angry about rising taxes clashed with French police for a third straight weekend and dozens were arrested after pockets of demonstrators built barricades in the middle of streets in central Paris, lit fires and threw rocks at officers on Saturday.    Protesters, including some wearing black hoodies, piled up large plywood planks and other material in the middle of a street near the Arc de Triomphe, and set the debris on fire.    Police fired tear gas and used water cannons to try to push back the protesters who gathered around the Arc de Triomphe. Some demonstrators responded by throwing large rocks.    Others removed the barriers protecting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I, under the monument, to pose near its eternal flame and sing the national anthem.   They were then dispersed by police. Paris police said at least 81 people have been arrested at midday. Nunez said 5,000 police were deployed in Paris to try to contain the protests.

Troops fortify US-Mexico border with razor wire

SOUNDBITE (English) Capt. Guster Cunningham, U.S. Army: "Yes, what we're doing is we're taking precautions. We always prepare for the worst and hope for the best. So we were asked to come and help support, fortify the fence so that's what we're doing with all this concertina wire you see here. We're putting it up top just in case a migrant or anybody else for that matter wants to try to scale the fence, which we know is illegal. 3. Various of U.S. troops putting razor wire atop the fence separating the U.S. from Mexico 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Capt. Guster Cunningham, U.S. Army: "This task is no different than being in Iraq, Afghanistan or any other place that we support throughout the world. It just happens to be on home soil at this time, which, speaking for myself, I'm proud to be here on home soil doing what I've been asked to do, which is to support the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and CBP (Customs and Border Patrol) in fortification of the border in a support role, as well as constructing these barricades in case they're needed in an emergency, we're able to help CBP do their law enforcement job." 5. Various of razor wire at port of entry 6. Various of Customs and Border Protection officers walking into building 7. Various of U.S. troops putting razor wire atop the fence separating the U.S. from Mexico 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Sgt. Eric Zigler, U.S. Army Military Police: "So just to make sure they're safe because, you know, with the migrants coming across the border, we're just making sure they're operating in a safe environment in support of Border Patrol as they reinforce the border." 9. Various of U.S. troops putting razor wire atop the fence separating the U.S. from Mexico 10. Various of razor wire at port of entry, cars driving across border STORYLINE: As hundreds of exhausted people in a caravan of Central American asylum seekers reached the U.S. border in Mexico on Friday, American troops worked to fortify the fence and port of entry separating the two countries with strands of razor wire. President Donald Trump has deployed some 5,800 military troops to border in Texas, Arizona and California. Some 1,500 of them are working along the border in California just across from Tijuana where many of migrants are arriving. With U.S. border inspectors at the main crossing into San Diego processing only about 100 asylum claims a day, it could take weeks if not months to process the thousands in the caravan that departed from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, more than a month ago. Tijuana's robust network of shelters was already stretched to the limit, having squeezed in double their capacity or more as families slept on the floor on mats and gathered on streets. To claim asylum in San Diego, migrants enter their names in a tattered notebook held together by duct tape. The waiting list has grown to more than 3,000 names and stands to become much longer with additional migrants arriving by the day. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/102011028589719587178/+APArchive​ Tumblr: https://aparchives.tumblr.com/​​ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/8cee5022e030fc5929f95c17c77026b8

Alexander Skarsgard talks family, jokes about brother Bill as Pennywise
 
02:15
(3 Dec 2018) ALEXANDER SKARSGARD TALKS FAMILY, JOKES ABOUT BROTHER BILL AS PENNYWISE The Skarsgards are a prominent family of actors, with father Stellan at the helm, and brothers Gustaf, Bill and Alexander also in the business. Despite their shared profession, the Swedish acting dynasty don't talk about their day jobs when they get together for the holidays. "We try to avoid that," said Alexander recently. "I mean I think naturally, like most families, if you're in the same profession, it's a big part of your life, so you do talk about it a bit. But I also love - I'm the only one based in the States. The rest of them are in Stockholm. Whenever I go home, it's quite nice to avoid that and to not talk about a project that you got going on, what you're working on and what you're excited about." Instead, the conversation is more basic. "It's nice to deal with like more trivial things, mundane stuff like just family life, or everything outside of work, in a way." The 42-year-old said he's looking forward to seeing his family in the coming months and meeting his new niece by brother Bill - best known for his role as demonic clown Pennywise in Stephen King horror, "It." "I Skyped with him the other day and he was on set shooting 'It 2,' and I caught him when he was in the makeup chair," Skarsgard said. "So we're talking about like what it's like having a baby and this profound beautiful experience and he's in his full clown makeup. And he's a very, very sweet guy, Bill. So, he's like this got very sweet disposition but looks like this crazy clown talking about his beautiful little girl and how amazing that's been. It was a very beautiful moment." Alexander Skarsgard can currently be seen starring in TV drama "The Little Drummer Girl," an adaptation of John le Carre's best-selling novel of the same name.

Prosecutor recounts 16 shots Van Dyke fired
 
03:48
(17 Sep 2018) Prosecutors on Monday showed jurors video of a white Chicago police officer opening fire on Laquan McDonald, dramatically recounting the 16 shots fired into the black teenager and calling the 2014 shooting "completely unnecessary." The video, played 15 minutes into the prosecution's opening statement in Jason Van Dyke's murder trial, shows the officer shooting McDonald on Oct. 20, 2014, as the 17-year-old, carrying a small knife in one hand, walks away from officers. "He shot him ... not once, not twice, but three, four, five, six seven, eight — he's only half way done — nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 times in total," special prosecutor Joseph McMahon told jurors, rapping his knuckles on a lectern each time he said a number. "Not a single shot was necessary or justified," he said at another point in his opening statement. But defense attorney Daniel Herbert argued that "what happened to Laquan McDonald was a tragedy. It's a tragedy, but it's not a murder." Before opening statements were made, the judge decided that the murder trial should not be moved out of the city. Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan announced his decision Monday morning. Defense attorneys requested that the trial be moved because the extensive publicity since the 2015 release of the video that shows Officer Jason Van Dyke shooting 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times makes it impossible to find impartial jurors needed for a fair trial. But attorneys were able to select a jury in less than a week.

Evicted white farmer returns to his  farm in Zimbabwe
 
04:00
(22 Dec 2017) A white commercial farmer, who was evicted from his farm in Manicaland province in Zimbabwe, returned to the area on Thursday after local community members said they wanted him back. Robert Smart and his family were welcomed back at their home after community members, local politicians and the country's new government intervened to reverse their forceful eviction by heavily armed Zimbabwean riot police back in June. The tobacco and maize grower was evicted from the estate near Rusape, about 200 kilometres (125 miles) east of Harare, to reportedly pave way for a top cleric, Trevor Manhanga, who had links with then president Robert Mugabe. The grabbing of Lesbury Farm came shortly after Mugabe told his supporters at a rally that all remaining white commercial farmers should be kicked off their properties to make way for the ruling Zanu-PF party's youth and his supporters who had no land. But, according to New Zimbabwe.com, president Mnangagwa's special adviser Chris Mutswangwa said on Tuesday that Smart and his son Darryn should not be disturbed in their farming activities. "These farmers are Zimbabweans and they belong to Manicaland province," Mutswangwa was quoted as saying, adding that the country now needed direct investments to boost the economy. Land is a contentious issue in Zimbabwe, where the government of former President Robert Mugabe, starting around 2000, initiated land seizures and evictions of farmers from the country's white minority, which relinquished power in 1980 after a guerrilla war by black nationalists. Mugabe said the often-violent reform program was meant to redistribute resources to poor blacks, but many prime farms instead ended up in the hands of ruling ZANU-PF party leaders, party loyalists, security chiefs, relatives and cronies. More recently, the situation was further complicated by rifts within the ruling party that led to the military intervention and the victory of president Emmerson Mnangagwa over a faction linked to Mugabe's wife Grace, who previously had presidential ambitions. Mnangagwa in his inauguration speech said farmers would be compensated for the seized land but said the program itself would not be reversed.

Cooking show host Samin Nosrat talks fad diets and the Instapot craze
 
03:36
(6 Sep 2018) COOKING SHOW HOST SAMIN NOSRAT TALKS FAD DIETS AND THE INSTAPOT CRAZE Samin Nosrat, food columnist for the New York Times Magazine and host of a new Netflix cooking show, is not a fan of fad diets like Ketogenic or paleo. "I try to sort of stay moderate. I'm also, I think, more than anything else I love vegetables. So to me, like the most luxurious form of cooking is to take vegetables at their peak and turn them into something. And just get to like, especially right now, it's summertime so just getting to eat one million different things, like strawberries and tomatoes and fresh shell beans. Just to grill everything is always, to me, the most luxurious way to eat. So I try to sort of stay with like 75 percent of my plate as vegetables and then the rest you can have whatever you want." One trend she is interested in is popular kitchen gadget the Instapot, which can serve as a pressure cooker, steamer and slow cooker. "I've come this close to pushing the order button so many times. There was an amazing article, did you read it in the New Yorker last year? About the Indian butter… She was called 'the butter chicken lady.' And it's this woman in Texas who wrote a whole cookbook of Indian Instapot recipes, including re-creating butter chicken, which is a really time and labor-intensive dish. And she like re-created the thing to be done in 11 minutes in an Instapot and people go nuts for it. And even like Indian immigrants are like, 'We can't tell the difference!' So that was why I almost bought the Instapot was so I could make the butter chicken." Nosrat travels the world exploring her favorite elements of cooking in the upcoming series "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat." She's open to trying anything but says there are a few foods she'll never eat again. "The things that make most people's stomach turn also make my stomach turn, but I do try to be like really open-minded and respectful. But man, like on the show for example, somebody, a fisherman who had like driven all night to get to this market in Italy, you know 500 miles, he handed me a fresh baby shrimp and he's like, 'We eat these alive.' And I didn't know what to do so I had to eat it! And it was really challenging! So yeah, there is some wiggling happening." "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat," premieres October 19 on Netflix.

Paris urban riots continue into the night
 
03:50
(1 Dec 2018) The most violent urban riots in a decade engulfed the French capital on Saturday, as "yellow jacket" protesters torched cars, smashed windows, looted stores and tagged the Arc de Triomphe in Paris with multi-coloured graffiti. Protesters angry about rising taxes and the high cost of living clashed with riot police, who closed off some of the city's most popular tourist areas and fired tear gas and water cannon in running street battles with activists dressed in the fluorescent yellow vests of a new protest movement. It was the third straight weekend of clashes in Paris and the worst urban violence since at least 2005. Hours later, cars still smouldered and law enforcement and protesters were still facing off elsewhere in the capital. The scene contrasted sharply with protests elsewhere in France, where demonstrations and road blockades on Saturday were largely peaceful. Paris police said at least 92 people, including 20 police officers, were injured in the violent protests in the French capital and 224 others were arrested. Thousands of police were deployed to try to contain the mayhem.

David Bowie is...’ exhibition makes last, and largest stop, at Brooklyn Museum
 
05:23
(28 Feb 2018) 'DAVID BOWIE IS' EXHIBITION MAKES LAST, AND LARGEST STOP, AT BROOKLYN MUSEUM Five years after premiering in London, a comprehensive David Bowie exhibit is making its last and most potent stop when it opens at the Brooklyn Museum in New York on Friday (2 MARCH). "David Bowie is" will be one of the biggest the museum has ever done. It includes iconic costumes, video footage, and some offbeat items too. Victoria Broackes, from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, co-curated the exhibit. She explains how Bowie was chosen for the initial 2013 exhibition. "We actually had Bowie on the top of a really short list of people we wanted to cover as a single artist subject at the VNA. But there was very little material, just a couple of collections in the UK, and that was because Bowie had it all, and he had been amassing it over many years. And then in the last ten years or so he was actually buying back material whereas ever came onto the market, which was rarely. So that is so unusual.  I don't know of another artist it's not just a pop artist but he has an archive of 75,000 objects going back to childhood. That is exceptional, "Broackes said. Matthew Yokobosky designed the space at the museum for the massive showing. But when it's over, he's not sure if there's going to be a more permanent place for the material. "The final venue for this exhibition, which is why it had to be just even a little bit more over the top. And you know, what will happen with David's material after is still being discussed." The material includes costumes from many of the Bowie's iconic looks, including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Halloween Jack, Major Tom, and the Thin White Duke. Broackes said that these personas were important to Bowie, because they allowed him to go beyond the music. "We're standing in the video section of the exhibition where we look at how Bowie really from his earliest days was interested in how the music looked, as well as how it sounded. And we have the famous 'Ashes to Ashes' costume by Natasha Korniloff, which she worked - she was a particular dance designer, and worked with Bowie going right back into the early days in the late 60s and 70s. And he worked with her again in 1980 for that video, which you know, we have to think it predates MTV. But Bowie was ahead of the pack in videos, as well as most other things," Broackes said. The exhibition includes approximately 500 objects, including 60 performance costumes, photographs, posters, handwritten lyrics, and videos. Yokobosky highlighted some of the must-see areas, which include many of Bowie's influences. "Yeah, you definitely want to hit the music video room, where the entire room is designed like a lightning bolt. You want to hit the black and white years, which the walls are painted to look like the set from this late 70s concert. You definitely want to look for the early material of influence, from German theater, Japanese theater - I mean, he studied a lot." "David Bowie is" opens on Friday (2 MARCH) and runs through July 15.

Beam me upstate? Shatner visits NY Star Trek set replica
 
03:09
(5 May 2018) BEAM ME UPSTATE? SHATNER VISITS NY STAR TREK SET REPLICA It's like William Shatner got stuck in a Star Trek time warp.    The 87-year-old actor visited a doppelganger of the original Starship Enterprise set in upstate New York for a fans' weekend on Friday (MAY 4).  He wore a dark jacket this time instead of his gold Capt. James T. Kirk shirt, but the command chair was still comfortable and the blinking lights of the bridge were just as he remembered them.    "This set is exactly the way it was 50-odd years ago," Shatner said. "And it's like it's coming back to a house you might have been born in and you look around and it's like, 'Wow! It's bigger and smaller than I remember. And yet it's the same.'"    Shatner said the set reminded him of both the emotional moments and the laughs, like when crew members would forget to open the sliding doors as he approached.    "I'd crash into the door," he said with a laugh. "And then I began to learn to make my own 'whhhoshhh' sound as I went out the door."    The "Captain on the Bridge" weekend runs Friday and Saturday at a tourist attraction boasting replicas of the original series' bridge, transporter room, sick bay and other sets. Tickets ranged as high as $1,500 for a chance to ask Shatner questions on the bridge, though "red shirt" tickets were $85. The attraction's website made clear "Mr. Shatner is NOT leading tours!"    Finding a Star Trek set built at the site of an old dollar store near the Vermont border seems highly illogical, but it was a labor of love for local resident James Cawley. The professional Elvis impersonator began the years-long process of building the sets in 1997 after inheriting a copy of the original Enterprise blueprints from a costume designer on the original show.    At first, Cawley and his crew used the sets to make a series of Star Trek fan films. Now the sets are a tourist attraction.    Dozens of fans waited outside Friday to greet Shatner, whose TV show went off the air almost 50 years ago. Many, like Glenn Coker of Catskill, New York, wore Star Trek uniforms. They said it was still a thrill to see Shatner.    "I'm a sci-fi person. Transporters beam me up. All the different things. Phasers," said Coker, who wore a Capt. Kirk shirt. "Plus, Kirk always got the girl."

The statewide death toll stood at 25 and appeared certain to rise. More than 100 people were reported missing after the so-called Camp Fire ravaged a swath of Northern California. At least five search teams were working in Paradise — a town of 27,000 that was largely incinerated on Thursday — and in surrounding communities. Authorities called in a mobile DNA lab and anthropologists to help identify victims of the most destructive wildfire in California history. By early afternoon, one of the two black hearses stationed in Paradise had picked up another set of remains. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

(8 Mar 2018) PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE TRY ON VR GOGGLES, ENJOY BALL GAMES IN BIRMINGHAM Britain's Prince Harry and his fiancee, Meghan Markle, donned VR goggles in the central English city of Birmingham on Thursday (8 MARCH 2018) at an event marking International Women's Day. The event was part of efforts to encourage young women to pursue jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM.) The royal couple joined a group of secondary school children at the city's Millennium Point, handing out prizes to three winners of a speech-writing contest. After their first engagement of the day, Markle and Prince Harry headed to Nechells Wellbeing Centre to meet members of Birmingham's Coach Core initiative, set-up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to train a new generation of sports coaches between the ages of 16-24. The young apprentices were delighted to meet the royal couple, especially Markle. "It's the first time we've met Meghan, and she's a lovely, she's a lovely woman, amazing," said Savanna Dickins.

Tensions escalate as Tijuana protesters chant 'Out!' at migrants camped in city
 
04:34
(19 Nov 2018) Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S. Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000. U.S. border inspectors are processing only about 100 asylum claims a day at Tijuana's main crossing to San Diego. Asylum seekers register their names in a tattered notebook managed by migrants themselves that had more than 3,000 names even before the caravan arrived. On Sunday, displeased Tijuana residents waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted "Out! Out!" in front of a statue of the Aztec ruler Cuauhtemoc, 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the U.S. border. They accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They also complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an "invasion." And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group. A block away, fewer than a dozen Tijuana residents stood with signs of support for the migrants. Most of the migrants who have reached Tijuana via caravan in recent days set out more than a month ago from Honduras, a country of 9 million people. Dozens of migrants in the caravan who have been interviewed by Associated Press reporters have said they left their country after death threats. Honduras has a murder rate of 43 per 100,000 residents, similar to U.S. cities like New Orleans and Detroit. In addition to violence, migrants in the caravan have mentioned poor economic prospects as a motivator for their departures.

Human rights lawyer, Amal Clooney, tells grads to be courageous

(10 May 2018) AMAL CLOONEY URGES GRADS TO BE COURAGEOUS Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney urged young students at Vanderbilt University to have courage because it inspires others and creates rights for future generations, using examples of some of the clients she has worked with around the world. Clooney spoke Thursday (10 MAY 2018) in Nashville, Tennessee, for senior day, a part of the university's commencement activities, and was given the Nichols-Chancellor's Medal. Clooney admitted that she had never been to Tennessee before, but said her husband, actor George Clooney, told her the university had a good basketball team. She noted that students at Vanderbilt who staged sit-ins during the Civil Rights era showed their courage to fight for equal rights. But she said courage is still needed to address conditions for women, journalists and LGBT people worldwide.

Tariff Sparks Trump Skepticism in Iowa
 
02:13
(30 Mar 2018) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: apus094873 JEFF REHDER (RAY-der) MAKES HIS LIVING AS A HOG FARMER. HE VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IN HOPES OF A BETTER FUTURE. BUT THE PRESIDENT'S PROPOSED CHINESE TARIFFS COULD AFFECT THE PRICE OF HIS HOGS. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeff Rehder, hog farmer: "That will be determined on how long it lasts. If it's a temporary up and down. I don't think it would be a big deal." TRUMP'S PLANS TO IMPOSE TARIFFS ON A RANGE OF CHINESE GOODS, INCLUDING STEEL AND ALUMINUM, IS AIMED AT PUNISHING BEIJING FOR STEALING AMERICAN TECHNOLOGY. TARIFFS HAVE BEEN A CENTRAL PART OF HIS PLEDGE TO GET TOUGH ON CHINA. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump US President: "It's going to make us a much stronger, much richer nation." THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT RESPONDED WITH A THREAT TO TAG U.S. PRODUCTS, INCLUDING PORK AND ALUMINUM, WITH AN EQUAL 25 PERCENT CHARGE. THAT SENT A CHILL THROUGH PLACES LIKE SIOUX COUNTY, WHICH RANKS FIRST IN IOWA IN AGRICULTURAL EXPORTS. IT'S ALSO A COUNTY WHERE 80 PERCENT OF VOTERS SUPPORTED TRUMP. SOUNDBITE (English)  Brad Te Grootenhuis, farmer: "Any time you are losing money nobody is happy." BUT THIS 42-YEAR-OLD FARMER SAYS HE STANDS TO LOSE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN REVENUE NEEDED TO FINANCE RECENT CONSTRUCTION IF CHINA RETALIATES. HE SAYS IT'S POSSIBLE HE WOULD ABANDON TRUMP IF PORK'S PRICE DECLINE CONTINUES AND LASTS. SOUNDBITE (English)  Brad Te Grootenhuis, farmer: "China and some of those people are major places we export pork. If we can't get rid of it we can't get rid of it in the United States. Our market is going to go down." OTHER HOG FARMERS, LIKE JEFF REHDER, WANT TO SEE HOW THE NEW TAX PLAN AFFECTS THEM. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeff Rehder, hog farmer: "We're looking forward to more profits this year than last year because of the tax cut. Hopefully we don't have to give it all away due to the tariffs." WHILE GOP CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS HAVE URGED TRUMP TO REVERSE COURSE, NO EVERYONE IN SIOUX COUNTY IS WORRIED ABOUT THE FALLOUT FROM A TRADE WAR. SOUNBITE (ENGLISH) Ed Westra, Hull Co-op Association manager: "There will be some casualties like any war that's going to be hurtful but then we'll work and adjust as best we can.

Harry and Meghan talk toasties in visit to cafe which supports homeless people
 
03:44
(13 Feb 2018) Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle are continuing their pre-wedding tour of Britain with a trip to Scotland.    Hundreds of well-wishers greeted the couple Tuesday in a cold and windy Edinburgh. After a trip to Edinburgh Castle, one of Scotland's most famous landmarks, the couple met founders and staff at the Social Bite cafe, a social enterprise which offers work to those without their own living accommodation. As they were shown around the kitchen, the couple shared their enthusiasm for cheese and ham toasties, while Harry veered off-topic to question a French member of staff which country she is supporting in the ongoing Six Nations rugby championship.    Leaving the cafe, the fashionable Markle wore a tartan coat by Burberry to honour the plaid for which Scotland is known.    It was the couple's fourth official engagement together as Harry introduces Markle to various parts of Britain.    They plan to meet members of the public and with various organisations involved in community work.    The American actress and Harry are set to marry at Windsor Castle on May 19.

EU leader Juncker stumbles, loses balance several times ahead of NATO dinner
 
03:36
(12 Jul 2018) If the NATO summit was tough on the dozens of leaders attending, it appears to have been even tougher on European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. The European Union leader was seen stumbling and losing his balance several times ahead of a gala dinner late Wednesday. Juncker was stumbling and swaying to the extent that the presidents of Finland and Ukraine, among others, had to help keep him upright. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte also stepped in to guide Juncker. Juncker has said he suffers from sciatica that sometimes affects his movements, and Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said Thursday that Juncker had complained of back pain. Juncker's office declined to comment, citing privacy concerns. Leaders of European institutions were invited to join the NATO leaders for a meeting and a dinner on Wednesday night.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend a Women's Empowerment reception
 
03:57
(19 Apr 2018) PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ATTEND WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT RECEPTION Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Thursday attended a Women's Empowerment reception hosted by the British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. The event was part of a summit of representatives of the Commonwealth, an association of the UK and its former colonies, which includes 53 countries held together loosely by historic ties. The biennial Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting is being held in London for the first time in two decades. The survival of the Commonwealth owes much to the commitment of the queen, who has visited almost every member country - often multiple times - over her 66-year reign.

Jake Gyllenhaal talks women's march at premiere of Paul Dano's directorial debut 'Wildlife'
 
04:37
(21 Jan 2018) JAKE GYLLENHAAL TALKS WOMEN'S MARCH AT PREMIERE OF PAUL DANO'S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT Jake Gyllenhaal says that Saturday's women's marches show that "the movement has grown bigger in a whole different way." The actor had been at the march one year ago in Washington, D.C. with his sister Maggie, and spoke Saturday afternoon at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of Paul Dano's directorial debut, "Wildlife." "Given everything that had happened last year and seeing how far everything has come this year – I know that the march itself wasn't with so many -- didn't have the same numbers. But at the same time what I think what has happened is that the movement has grown bigger in a whole different way. And so you can feel that," he said. As for Gyllenhaal's role in the current movement, he says: "Uh. To listen. That's what my sister says. So I listen to my sister." Gyllenhaal stars in "Wildlife" opposite Carey Mulligan as a family in the 1960s whose lives are falling apart. Dano adapted the novel into a screenplay with his partner Zoe Kazan over the course of several years -- during which time he acted alongside Gyllenhaal twice. "We were making a movie together many years ago – not many years ago but a few years ago called 'Prisoners.' Paul said to me he was writing a screenplay. We had time in between scenes we were shooting, while we were shooting in Atlanta. And I didn't really think much of it. I just thought wow, that's so great he's being courageous and sort of breaking into new ground," Gyllenhaal said. "And then about two years later, we were doing another movie together – this movie called 'Okja.' And he said I'm putting this thing together. I think I'm going to make this movie. I want to direct it. And I said, I'd love to read it. And I read it and I thought it was beautifully written. And the rest is sort of here right now." Gyllenhaal said that working alongside friends like Kazan and Dano was "sort of ideal." "When you get to chill with your friends and make a movie, it's pretty incredible," he said. Mulligan said she trusted Dano immediately as a director. "He's got such good instincts, you know? And I think that's why I felt immediately comfortable, and I knew that I could just trust him. Because I knew that the instincts that he has and the choices that he makes in his own work are so good that he would only guide another actor to make similarly good choices. So it was brilliant," she said. Dano -- a Sundance veteran -- said he was nervous and excited about the premiere. "We've been here many, many times. The first film that I ever acted in came here to Sundance. And now the first film I've made has, so it's great," he said. Sundance runs through 28 January.

Russia's Putin meets US National Security Advisor John Bolton
 
06:26
(23 Oct 2018) Russian President Vladimir Putin says he would be ready to meet with US President Donald Trump when they both visit Paris next month. Speaking at the start of Tuesday's meeting with Trump's national security adviser John Bolton, Putin said it's important to maintain Russia-U.S. dialogue despite their differences. Bolton's visit follows Trump's statement over the weekend that he intends to pull out of a key nuclear arms pact, the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. Putin told Bolton Russia was puzzled by the unprovoked move that he does not think "could be called friendly." Putin also alluded to the US coat of arms, which shows an eagle holding a bundle of 13 arrows in one talon and an olive branch with 13 olives in another. Laughing, Putin asked if the eagle had eaten all the olives. Putin said his last meeting with Trump in Helsinki in July was useful, adding that he would be open to meet with Trump in France if he agrees. Bolton responded that Trump would look forward to seeing Putin in Paris on the sideline of events marking 100 years since the armistice ending World War I.

(5 Nov 2018) French president Emmanuel Macron attended a ceremony on Monday in memory of soldiers killed in August 1914 in the Battle of Morhange, one of the very first battles of World War I. Around 5,000 French soldiers died during this battle, part of the "Battles of the Frontiers" that took place during the opening weeks of the war in Eastern France. This solemn ceremony was the first of several that the French president will attend in various WWI battle zone sites in Eastern and Northern France until Saturday, November 10th. This tour of the memorial sites will be followed by an international ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice on November 11th. More than 60 heads of state and government, including US President Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin, are expected to attend.

Afrikaner town launches its own digital currency
 
06:22
(15 Jul 2018) LEAD IN A rural enclave in South Africa, set up after the end of apartheid, is launching its own digital currency. The Afrikaner town Orania already uses its own money and it's now teaming up with an economist to roll out an electronic version. STORY-LINE Although Monja Strydom lives in South Africa, she doesn't use the national currency, the rand, when shopping. Strydom has lived almost her whole life in Orania, a semi-independent Afrikaner community in the northern Cape province. The method of payment here is the Ora and an electronic version is now being introduced. Carel Boshoff is the President of the Orania Movement. "In the first place it is about self-reliance which sprouts from a determined sense of responsibility, together with carrying out our own labour, our own work. This has in an interesting way everything to do with the use of the Ora, an internal coupon, an internal currency - in inverted commas - which is now becoming an e-Ora, which can be used for electronic transactions. This reiterates the concept of self-reliance – to create a way of stimulating and strengthening an internal economy," he says.   When South Africa's infamous apartheid segregation policy was dismantled 25 years ago, a group of Afrikaners founded their own separate community. The country's liberal constitution allows for the right to self-determination of any community sharing a common cultural and language heritage. Orania, which is 8000 hectares in size and is on private land, runs its own municipal services. For its 1600 residents, the E-Ora is another step towards independence. Dawie Roodt is an economist who as been advising Orania on their E-Ora development. "So as money evolved over time transaction costs have been coming down quite dramatically. And that's a very important contributing reason why the world is as rich as it is today and probably why the world is going to grow even richer – because the costs of transactions have been coming down. For that reason it is so important that you always stay with the most recent developments, technological developments. And I think the most recent technological development certainly is the so-called electronic money, or so-called crypto money and maybe even private money. And as transactions keep on coming down, I think that we are going to see that economies do more transactions, and more transactions in the end means more economic activity and more wealth creation," he says. The Ora is essentially a coupon pegged to the South African Rand. Transaction costs for the E-Ora, or electronic ora, are only 0.5 percent which compares favourably to bank charges in South Africa and globally. To use the E-Ora Strydom loads credit onto her E-Ora account at the Orania Chamber of Commerce. She can then make purchases without the need for cash. "It's very easy. So I came here literally with my phone and bought the things I needed. I didn't need to bring my purse. And I could be anywhere and do a transaction so that makes it very easy. And the transaction costs are very low. So those are the two positive things about the E-Ora," she says. The South African government is currently formulating a position paper on cryptocurrency. Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank, Francois Groepe clarifies the position of South Africa's central bank on the E-Ora. But transitioning from the Ora to the electronic Ora opens up possibilities of further independence for this community.

UK royal expert: timing of pregnancy announcement a surprise
 
03:35
(15 Oct 2018) The timing of the announcement that Prince Harry's wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is expecting a baby was a surprise, according to a top royal expert. Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty Magazine, described the timing as "intriguing", given the royal couple have just landed in Australia on the first leg of a major international tour. He said the announcement would mean scrutiny of the couple's 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand would now be "much more intense". Little also said the new arrival would be the first royal baby with American blood and revealed their likely title. "If it's a boy he will be the Earl of Dumbarton, which is Prince Harry's subsidiary title as Duke of Sussex. If it's a girl she will be Lady, dare I say Diana Windsor or whatever name they choose".

At Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, rapper-actor-TV presenter Snoop Dogg says, 'I want to thank me'
 
04:33
(20 Nov 2018) SNOOP DOGG THANKS HIMSELF FOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS EARNING HIS HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME STAR Snoop Dogg thanked himself for the achievements that earned him a star on Hollywood Boulevard. Monday (19 NOVEMBER 2018), the rapper-turned-entrepreneur received the 2,651st star on the Walk of Fame. "I want to thank me," Snoop Dogg said, with a grin. "I want to thank me for believing in me. I want to thank me for doing all this hard work. I want to thank me for having no days off. I want to thank me for never quitting. I want to thank me for always being a giver and trying to give more than I receive. I want to thank me for trying to do more right and wrong. I want to thank me for just being me at all times." The unveiling attracted a blast of fans and big-name stars, including recording artists Pharrell and Warren G, TV presenter Jimmy Kimmel, and record producers Quincy Jones and Dr. Dre. "Snoop was always there for me, ready to work and constantly motivating and pushing me and making me believe I could do it," Dre noted. "I mean, I could always hear his voice in my head, 'C'mon, Dr. Dre, 'cause, you could do this. You just gotta keep it gangsta,'" he continued, laughing. The legendary Jones addressed Snoop Dogg directly from the podium: "Snoop, it was 25 years ago," Jones recalled. "but it seems only yesterday that you and your crew were hanging it out at my house. I wasn't even in town, but it's all right though, because you were family then and you are a family now and forever eternally. And how magnificent your journey has been from East St. Louis to Long Beach to Hollywood." TV presenter Kimmel, whose show is recorded directly across from Snoop Dogg's star on Hollywood Boulevard commented, "I don't know how I follow the two greatest record producers of all time, but I'll give it a try. I'm Jimmy Kimmel. I'm Snoop's second-coolest white friend after Martha Stewart. Snoop is a multi-talent: He's a rapper, songwriter, record producer, TV host, actor, author, entrepreneur. He was the winner of the Nobel Prize in 2009 in Chemistry for his groundbreaking experiments combining gin with juice. And while Snoop, you are not -- I don't know if you know this? -- you are not the first dog to earn a star on the Walk of Fame. That honor belongs to Lassie and Rin Tin Tin. You will be the first to not immediately pee on it. So, thank you for that." At ceremony's end, the 47-year-old Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, give wife Shante Broad a long kiss.

Brits in Bulgaria won't budge after Brexit
 
05:10
(20 May 2018) LEADIN: Britain may be leaving the European Union, but many Brits living in northern Bulgaria seem determined to remain. There are over 4,000 UK citizens registered as permanent residents in Bulgaria and more than half of those are in the north. Most arrived here after 2007 - the year when Bulgaria joined the EU - searching for a cheaper and simpler way of life. STORYLINE: Northern Bulgaria, the region between the Balkan Mountains and the Danube river, is one of poorest regions in the EU, according to Eurostat. But it has become home for a number of British expats searching for a cheaper and simpler way of life. Nick and Nicky Kinson run a camping site near the city of Veliko Tarnovo. In 2007 they were one of the first British couples to buy property in this area, the year Bulgaria joined the European Union. "When we started it was just a wheat field. It was agricultural land so there was no electricity, no water, no trees, no garden, no swimming pool, no nothing. And we slightly built it up over the last 10 years, just adding a little bit every year and every year. Now it's progressed to, or grown into a beautiful little oasis in the middle of beautiful Bulgaria", explains Nick.   Nicky Kinson fell in love with the country at first sight and has always felt very welcome here. "The local people all treat us like Bulgarians now, in fact, they even say we're becoming a little like Bulgarians, which we take as a compliment", she says. The Kinsons say that Brexit isn't worrying them and they are not considering moving back to the UK. "The UK embassy in Sofia has said that the rights you have today will remain the same once Brexit happens. So, I don't think there will be any major changes particularly for us and hopefully not, because obviously we enjoy living here and we enjoy doing what we are doing and providing what we provide," says Nick. Nick and Nicky are not the only Brits who have chosen to move to northern Bulgaria. 4,000 UK citizens have registered as permanent residents in Bulgaria, and more than half live in the northern region, according to the Office of National statistics. In contrast, Bulgarians have been leaving this area in droves. Because of the high levels of unemployment and a depressed local economy, only one third of the people in the country now live in the north, despite it covering half of the country's territory. One of the villages most popular amongst Brits is Hotnitsa - it's a 20 minute drive from the largest city in this area called Veliko Tarnovo. Shirley Stevenson and her partner Douglas Smith moved here two years ago, at first attracted by the low property prices. Shirley has opened 'Bits and Bobs', a small second-hand shop in the centre of Hotnitsa, where people can sell their unwanted items. With Brexit in mind, they are making sure they don't have to move back after the UK leaves the EU. "We are in the process of doing our residency and then the citizenship will hopefully follow," says Shirley. The area around Hotnitsa is full of abandoned villages, houses left to crumble and an aging population. The number of residents in northern Bulgaria decreased by 30,000 people in 2017 alone, according to official statistics. Around the city of Veliko Tarnovo there are 58 empty villages with no remaining inhabitants. However, in recent years locals are proud to say that Hotnitsa has become a centre for British expats who have renovated old properties and are actively involved in the community.

Bangladesh opposition leader jailed for 5 years over corruption case
 
02:18
(8 Feb 2018) A Bangladesh court sentenced former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia on Thursday to five years in prison on corruption charges. The conviction means that Zia, the archrival of the current prime minister, could be barred from running in December national elections. Zia was taken to a Dhaka prison under heavy security. In a country riven by dynastic politics, security forces fearing clashes had poured into the streets ahead of the verdict, along with supporters of both major political parties. Defence lawyer Mahbub Uddin Kokhon said Zia ordered him to appeal. Zia was convicted of embezzling some 250,000 US dollars in donations meant for an orphanage trust established when she was last prime minister, from 2001-2006. Judge Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman, who announced the verdict in a courtroom in Dhaka's Old City, also sentenced Zia's son, Tarique Rahman, and four others to 10 years in prison for involvement in the crime. All can appeal their convictions. Bangladesh law says anyone imprisoned for more than two years cannot run for office for the next five years, but Law Minister Anisul Huq said the final decision rests with the appeals courts.

US sanctions push Iran to trade more with China
 
03:21
(12 Sep 2018) LEADIN It's predicted Iran will look even more to China as an alternative oil market amid ongoing US sanctions. But analysts say Beijing will extract maximum benefit from the situation and could even take advantage of Iran. STORYLINE It's hard not to see China wherever you look in Iran. From Chinese goods flooding markets to its business people eager for deals as Western business interests flee, Iran is likely to further embrace Beijing as an alternative market for its crude oil and financial transactions amid uncertainty over the nuclear deal. With President Donald Trump's decision to pull America from the accord, China could be one of the few avenues left open to Iran. The Chinese have stressed they want the nuclear deal to continue and support any talks toward that end. But that doesn't mean China offers a safe haven to Iran without conditions. Beijing will likely try to extract the maximum benefit, analysts say.

US border agents stop woman squeezing under fence
 
02:55
(5 Dec 2018) More Central American migrants breached the American border Tuesday, following the arrival a fortnight ago of a caravan of migrants in the Mexican town of Tijuana. The Associated Press filmed Rachel Rivera from Honduras pushing herself head first and face down through a gap dug under the border fence. She was followed by her three year old daughter. Rivera said she wanted to give her daughter a better life. After crossing into the United States, they were taken in by US border patrol officers. US authorities acknowledge there's been a "slight uptick" in the number of migrants crossing the border illegally, compared with the number before the caravan arrived in Tijuana.

Journalist on Vigano claims that pope knew about McCarrick allegations
 
03:52
(27 Aug 2018) Italian journalist, Marco Tosatti confirmed on Monday the authenticity of an 11-page text by the Vatican's retired ambassador to the US where he claims Pope Francis knew in 2013 about sexual misconduct allegations against the former archbishop of Washington, Theodore McCarrick. Tosatti, a journalist for the conservative Italian newspaper "La Verita'" (The Truth) and Vatican expert, said he was with Vigano when the he wrote the document on Wednesday. "Some weeks ago he called me and he told me that he had something important to say," the journalist told The Associated Press. Tosatti said he and Vigano "worked for three hours and more, reading and re-reading and writing and re-writing until the document was completed." Pope Francis declined on Sunday to confirm or deny the claims by Vigano that he knew about the sexual misconduct allegations in 2013 but rehabilitated McCarrick anyway. Francis said the 11-page text by Vigano, which reads in part like a homophobic attack on Francis and his allies, "speaks for itself" and that he wouldn't comment on it. The National Catholic Register and another conservative site, LifeSiteNews, published Vigano's text on Sunday as the pope wrapped up a two-day visit to Ireland dominated by the clerical sex abuse scandal. Vigano, 77, a conservative whose hardline anti-gay views are well known, urged the reformist pope to resign over what he called Francis' own culpability in covering up McCarrick's crimes. Vigano wrote the letter because "as a bishop he felt to have a duty toward the Church and the Catholics," and secondly because "he couldn't have a clear conscience unless he spoke," said Tosatti. The letter also contains a lengthy diatribe about homosexuals and liberals in the Catholic church. It often reads like an ideological manifesto, naming all of Francis' known supporters in the US hierarchy as being complicit in a cover-up of McCarrick's misdeeds. Francis accepted McCarrick's resignation as cardinal last month, after a US church investigation determined that an accusation he had sexually abused a minor was credible. Since then, another man has come forward to say McCarrick began molesting him starting when he was 11, and several former seminarians have said McCarrick abused and harassed them when they were in seminary. The accusations have created a crisis of confidence in the US and Vatican hierarchy, because it was apparently an open secret that McCarrick regularly invited seminarians to his New Jersey beach house, and into his bed. Coupled with the devastating allegations of sex abuse and cover-up in a recent Pennsylvania grand jury report, which found that 300 priests had abused more than 1,000 children over 70 years in six dioceses, the scandal has led to calls for heads to roll and for a full Vatican investigation into who knew what and when about McCarrick.

Turkey to restore Ottoman-era island buildings
 
03:33
(28 Dec 2017) LEAD IN: Turkey will restore Ottoman-era buildings on Suakin Island in Sudan. But its president has denied they will also construct a naval base in the port city. STORY-LINE: Suakin Island sits in the waters of the Red Sea, part of the port city of Saukin in north-east Sudan. The little patch of land has a rich history but its ancient buildings have decayed in recent times. But a new deal with Turkey is set to breathe new life into the area. The foreign power plans to restore the Ottoman-era ruins - though it denies reports it will also construct a naval base here. Shenqrai Ibrahim, a history researcher, says the city is one of the oldest in Sudan and even has some supernatural tales attached to it. "They said that it was from the time of our master Solomon and he was jailing the genie, so the name of Suakin came from the word 'sawajen' (which means jails)," he explains. It is not the first time Suakin has experienced Turkish influence - it was conquered by Ottoman sultan Selim I in the 16th century. It was on the route of the slave trade and was an important hub for merchants. It was once Sudan's main port - a title now taken by Port Sudan, 50 kilometres (31 miles) north. The British Army also entered the city during the 1800s. Buildings on Saukin Island were constructed from coral harvested in the area. But now they are in disrepair and the island is largely abandoned. Local politicians hope the island will soon be restored to the heady heights of those glory days. "We are expecting a kick-start to tourism on the island, and there will be the biggest marina for tourist yachts and for receiving tourists who are interested in diving, entertainment and resorts," says Khaled Sadan, the Suakin Governor. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has denied that his country is constructing a naval base here. Asked about reports that Turkey would build a naval base at Suakin, Erdogan told a group of journalists on his return from an Africa visit that included Sudan: "There is no such thing as a military port."

Spanish NGO vessel rescues more than 100 migrants off coast of Libya
 
02:32
(6 May 2018) A Spanish nonprofit dedicated to helping migrants at sea on Sunday rescued 105 migrants in the Mediterranean, north of Libya. Proactiva Open Arms found the migrants drifting at sea in a motor-less rubber boat. The migrants told an Associated Press photographer onboard who documented the rescue that human smugglers sailing in a separate boat removed their boat's engine half way through the dangerous Mediterranean crossing and left. Among those rescued were eight women and six children. Fifty-four migrants originated from Bangladesh, 19 from Morocco and 12 from Egypt. There were also migrants from Nigeria, Pakistan, Sudan, Eritrea, Senegal, Libya and Ghana. Favorable weather appears to have sparked the surge in sea crossings. Each year, tens of thousands of migrants attempt to reach southern European countries by crossing the Mediterranean in smugglers' boats. Most of the vessels are unfit for open water, and thousands of migrants drown each year. The UN says 615 migrants have died crossing the Mediterranean so far this year. A total of 22,439 migrants have reached European shores, with 4,409 arriving in Spain, through the first four months of 2018.
