  • Taiwan hotel axes Marriott contract over China naming row

    Golocal247.com news

    The owner of a Starwood-branded hotel in Taiwan said Thursday it will terminate its contract with Marriott International, in protest over the US group caving in to Beijing pressure to list the island as part of China. Marriott was strongly criticised by Chinese authorities in January for listing Taiwan -- along with Tibet and Hong Kong -- as separate countries, all regions which Beijing claims under its authority.

  • Mike Huckabee's air travel jokes crash and burn on Twitter

    Golocal247.com news

    The conservative commentator and former Republican presidential candidate had just landed at Nashville International Airport on a red eye flight out of Los Angeles when it was temporarily quarantined because of a possible sick passenger on board. After sitting on the ground for 40 minutes, Huckabee told his 1.08 million Twitter followers that his American Airlines plane had been quarantined. "It's the Russians! I just know it!" About a half-hour later, he tweeted a picture of emergency vehicles on the tarmac and announced that medical personnel were the gate, adding "Hope it's not because I got that straw in CA!" But Huckabee's humor did not go over well with most of the more than 1,600 people who tweeted back at him on Thursday morning.

    Golocal247.com news

    Officials have announced a state of emergency in New Haven, Connecticut after at least 76 people overdosed on a synthetic marijuana alternative. The harrowing incident is just the latest in a wave of synthetic marijuana overdoses nationwide, in which hundreds of victims have suffered a myriad of side effects, from bleeding out of their eye sockets to delusional thinking and repeated vomiting. Researchers and police believe the recent string of K2 overdoses may have been caused in part by mixing the drug with opioids, fentanyl, or unknown compounds imported from Russia and China.

  • How a US coffee shop sparked a diplomatic standoff between China and Taiwan

    Golocal247.com news

    A bakery in California has found itself at the centre of an international storm after it welcomed the president of Taiwan with a cup of coffee and a goody bag. The result was a major diplomatic incident as Chinese customers launched a boycott of the 85C Bakery Cafe, which rapidly disappeared from online ordering platforms on the Chinese mainland.  The episode highlight's Beijing's sensitivity over an island that considers itself a sovereign state, but has never declared formal independence.  The Taiwanese-owned chain apologised and distanced itself from the views of Tsai Ing-wen, the pro-independence leader of the island, after she dropped in on Wednesday en route to visiting allies in South America.  Excited staff gave her a gift bag and took selfies, as images were uploaded to Facebook by part of her delegation. A woman looks at her mobile phone at a 85C Bakery Cafe in Hangzhou in China's eastern Zhejiang province Credit: AFP They have since been removed but it was too late to prevent the diplomatic fallout. Beijing - which has been working to isolate countries that recognise Taiwan - warned it would oppose any businesses that support Taiwanese independence. A company official in Taipei, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that it had been removed from several online platforms, telling the AFP news agency: "We have noticed the situation and we hope it won't be permanent." 85C began in Taiwan but has since expanded to earn more than 60 percent of its revenue in China. Losing its presence on food delivery apps would be devastating. At a glance | The One China policy China views the island as part of its own territory, and has escalated a campaign to isolate Taiwan internationally since Ms Tsai came to power in 2016. A growing number of international companies including airlines and hotels have been bending to pressure from Beijing to refer to Taiwan as part of China. The election of Donald Trump has added to Chinese unease as he showed little regard for the fine lines and grey areas of the "one China policy". Taiwan's state-aligned Central News Agency on Thursday quoted a top official with China's Taiwan Affairs Office, Long Mingbiao, as saying in Beijing that any company that expects to invest and "make money" in China must adhere to its policies. 85C's problems began after Tsai stopped off at a Los Angeles branch of the cafe this week during an American visit in which she became the first Taiwanese leader in 15 years to give a public speech on American soil, something Beijing staunchly opposes. Internet users in China lashed out with boycott threats and calls for the coffee chain to quit the Chinese market.

  • Jury in Manafort trial asks U.S. judge about 'reasonable doubt'

    Golocal247.com news

    The case is the first to go to trial stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election, although the charges largely predate Manafort's five months working on Trump's campaign, including three as chairman. Before wrapping up their work for the day, the jurors asked U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis their first questions, including the definition of "reasonable doubt." In a criminal case the jury must find a defendant guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt." "The government is not required to prove beyond all possible doubt," Ellis said, responding to a note from the jury with the questions. Ellis added that reasonable doubt was "doubt based on reason." The other questions delved into details of the case.

  • Bayer starts Monsanto integration as stock suffers

    German chemicals and pharmaceuticals giant Bayer said Thursday that it would begin integrating seeds and pesticides maker Monsanto after a mega-merger, but its stock price was battered by the US firm's legal woes. Two months after the $63 billion deal -- the biggest ever foreign takeover by a German company -- Bayer completed the sale of a final tranche of crop science businesses worth 5.9 billion euros ($6.7 billion) to rival BASF under concessions imposed by cartel watchdogs. With competition authorities' conditions met, "the integration of Monsanto into the Bayer Group can begin," the Leverkusen-based company said in a statement.

  • Queen's physician, Dr Peter Fisher, killed in crash with lorry while cycling in central London

    Golocal247.com news

    The Queen’s doctor has been killed by a lorry while cycling in a notorious Central London accident hotspot. Dr Peter Fisher, one of three official Physicians to The Queen and a renowned homeopathist, was crushed by the vehicle on Wednesday morning in High Holborn, near to the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine where he had practised for 35 years. The 67-year-old is understood to have taken up cycling to work only in the last two years and was killed on “Cycle To Work Day”, a national campaign to champion pedal power over cars. Last night campaigners said his death highlighted the deficiency of safety measures protecting cyclists from lorries. Dr Peter Fisher, pictured with the Queen in 1999, was a member of the royal medical household Credit: David Sandison/REX/Shutterstock In the last five years, four have been killed near the same spot in Holborn alone. The collision with a CCF lorry, a sub-brand of Travis Perkins, took place at about 9.30am. One eyewitness, Angei Bozianu, manager of the nearby Princess Louise pub, told the Evening Standard: “I heard a woman screaming and I looked out of the window and he was under wheel.” Dr Peter Fisher, pictured in 2016, was a leading expert in homeopathy The Metropolitan Police said the lorry driver had stopped at the scene, was not under arrest and was assisting with their enquiries. But they also appealed for witnesses to come forward. Buckingham Palace confirmed the Queen had been informed. Greg white, chief executive of the Faculty of Homeopathy, said: “We have lost a leader, not just for the faculty but for homeopathy in the UK and worldwide. “It’s no exaggeration to say Peter is an irreplaceable talent. “He truly was a giant in all his fields of endeavour, which included clinician, research and academic.” A sometimes controversial figure, Dr Fisher believed passionately in the power of homeopathy, a belief that highly diluted substances can induce the body to heal itself. The practice is regarded as no better than a placebo by most of the medical profession and has now been all but banished from the NHS. Evidence markers beneath a lorry at the scene of the fatality Credit: Rob Pinney/LNP  His advocacy alongside his position in the royal household attracted some criticism, but he always pointed out that homeopathists have been treating the Royal Family since the reign of Queen Victoria. However, he revealed in an interview with The Daily Telegraph in January that, three years after taking up his position in 2001, he received a “serious dressing down” from the head of the medical household, Sir Richard Thompson, for mentioning his Royal connection during a public argument about homeopathy. Sir Richard last night confirmed the incident took place but added Dr Fisher was “a very nice man” and “absolutely passionate about homeopathy”. It is understood Dr Fisher has grown-up children. Meanwhile a colleague told The Daily Telegraph: “He had a marriage behind him and was moving forward in life with a new partner. “It’s such a tragedy and a terrible irony it happened on national cycle to work day.” Emergency services at the scene of the crash in High Holborn on Wednesday morning Credit: Rob Pinney/LNP Dr Gill Gaskin, medical director for University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the umbrella body for Dr Fisher’s hospital, where he served as Director of Research, said he was: “A highly regarded colleague and friend”. Duncan Dollimore, head of campaigns at charity Cycling UK, said Dr Fisher’s death highlights why there must be greater efforts to protect riders from lorries. "That's why more needs to be done to separate cyclists from lorries in areas like Holborn, the scene of four cyclists' deaths in the last five years, and to ensure that only the safest lorries, which eliminate vehicle blind spots, are allowed into London," he said. The London Cycling Campaign intends to hold a protest in Holborn next Monday.

    A child's body found at a New Mexico compound has been identified as Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, a missing 3-year-old boy whose father is one of five adults charged with child abuse at the remote settlement, the Taos County Sheriff said on Thursday. The condition of the body made identification difficult, and investigators had to use different methods to make a positive identification, according to a statement from Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe.The cause and manner of death remained unclear, the statement said. Authorities unearthed the boy's body at the compound on Aug. 6, three days after they raided the ramshackle home near Amalia, New Mexico, where they found 11 children in "filthy conditions" with no food or clean water.

  • Rising sea levels threatens coastal cities with more tsunamis, scientists warn

    Golocal247.com news

    Tsunamis will become more common and more ferocious with global warming, scientists have warned after a study found that global sea level rises will increase the risk of coastal cities being wiped out. Smaller earthquakes that currently pose no serious tsunami threat could unleash waves capable of inundating coastal cities, researchers found in a study focusing on the city of Macau in China. Currently it is considered safe from tsunamis, despite lying within a major earthquake zone. At today's sea level, it would take a very powerful earthquake tipping past magnitude 8.8 to cause widespread tsunami flooding in Macau. But a half-metre rise in sea level - predicted to occur in the region by 2060 - could more than double the chances of a huge tsunami swamping the territory, according to the research. A three-foot sea level rise, expected by 2100, would increase the risk up to 4.7 times. The source of the earthquake danger is the Manila Trench, a massive crack in the floor of the South China Sea formed by the collision of two tectonic plates. It has generated numerous earthquakes, though none larger than magnitude 7.8 since the 1560s. A modest rise in sea levels would greatly amplify the tsunami threat from smaller earthquakes, the computer simulation study showed. Cities most prone to natural disaster Lead researcher Dr Robert Weiss, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in the US, said: "Our research shows that sea-level rise can significantly increase the tsunami hazard, which means that smaller tsunamis in the future can have the same adverse impacts as big tsunamis would today. "The South China Sea is an excellent starting point for such a study because it is an ocean with rapid sea-level rise and also the location of many mega cities with significant worldwide consequences if impacted." The team's findings are reported in the journal Science Advances.
