Broccoli compound induces cell death, offers research path for cancer treatment    Hiroshima University (Japan), January 24, 2022 Broccoli may contain advantages beyond nutrition. A molecule found in broccoli, cabbage and more digests down into DIM, a compound with brighter benefits than the name implies, such as inducing cell death in breast, prostate and colon cancer. Now, researchers are beginning to understand the mechanism underpinning this molecular behavior — information that could help elucidate future anti-cancer treatments. In a report published oin PLOS One, Hiroshima University researchers summarize their finding that DIM, or 3,3'-Diindolylmethane, also triggers controlled whole-cell death and recycling of cellular components.   (NEXT)   Late-life exercise shows rejuvenating effects on cellular level University of Arkansas, January 24, 2022   For people who hate exercising, here comes some more bad news: it may also keep you younger. Not just looking younger, but actually younger, on an epigenetic level. By now, the benefits of exercise have been well established, including increased strength of bones and muscles, improved mobility and endurance, and lower risk of heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. But younger? A study recently published in Aging Cell, "Late-life exercise mitigates skeletal muscle epigenetic aging," suggests this could be the case.   (NEXT)   Fish oil users have lower risk of liver cancer   Ningbo University (China) & Albert Einstein College of Medicine (US), January 24 2022. Findings from a study published in Frontiers in Nutrition revealed a significantly lower risk of liver cancer among people who supplemented with fish oil compared to nonusers. The study included 434,584 middle-aged and older men and women enrolled in the UK Biobank who were free of cancer upon enrollment. Participants were queried concerning fish oil use in questionnaires completed at the beginning of the study. Cancer registry data reported cases diagnosed during a median follow-up period of 7.8 years.   (NEXT)   Vitamin K could offer protection against severe COVID-19, study show   Canisius-Wilhelmina Hospital (Netherlands), January 21, 2022 Proper nutrition can make a difference when it comes to many health problems, and COVID-19 is no exception. While zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin D have been getting a lot of attention when it comes to COVID-19, researchers are now pointing to another useful nutrient: vitamin K. This fat-soluble vitamin is already well-known for its role in blood clotting, and that's why it could have a protective effect against COVID-19 given the virus's ability to cause blood clotting degradation of elastic fibers in the lungs. In a Preprint study, Dutch researchers suggested that people with severe COVID-19 may have low levels of vitamin K. They wrote: “Coagulation is an intricate balance between clot promoting and dissolving processes in which vitamin K plays a well-known role.”   (NEXT)   Olive oil could slash your chance of bone fractures in half, study says   Prevención con Dieta Mediterránea (Spain), January 24, 2022 Eating more extra virgin olive oil could cut your risk of osteoporosis related fractures, says a new study. The phenolic compounds found in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) have a potential benefit on bone health, lowering the risk of fractures by 51%, if consumed regularly. After looking at data of 870 people, a positive role of EVOO consumption on bone-related markers was found, despite there being no significant positive effects on bone fractures in subjects allocated to an EVOO diet.   (NEXT)   Red pigment in red peppers and oranges linked to a lower risk of lung cancer   Tufts University, January 20, 2022 Xiang-Dong Wang, a cancer researcher at Tufts, has spent a long time trying to figure out why carotenoids, the main pigments providing colors that range from yellow and pink to deep orange and red in most fruits and vegetables, seem to keep chronic diseases at bay. When a 2004 study by other researchers showed that eating foods containing beta-cryptoxanthin (BCX)—a red pigment abundant in sweet red peppers, paprika, winter and butternut squash, oranges. and tangerines, among other foods—was associated with a lower risk of lung cancer in people who smoke, he made BCX a focus of his research.   (OTHER NEWS NEXT)   US Report Reveals 22 Years of Effort and Fluoridation Failed to Improve Oral Health   New York -- January 24, 2022 Despite increases in public water fluoridation, dental visits, sealants, fluoride varnish applications, and significant financial, training, and program investments, oral health hasn't improved in 22 years, according to a National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) Oral Health in America Report (December 2021), reports the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF). “America's shockingly poor dental system, poverty and poor diets are to blame,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President. Millions of Americans can't access dental care, while 70% of US children and adolescents are fluoride-overdosed, afflicted with fluorosis (permanently discolored teeth). For example, the NIDCR reports: ·  The military continues to face challenges in meeting recruitment goals and military readiness because of oral health-related issues. ·  Untreated cavities among the poor remain twice that of non-poor. Disparities persist by race/ethnicity status. ·  Primary tooth decay increased in boys aged 6-11 and didn't change in adolescents' and adults' permanent teeth. ·  Untreated decay in permanent teeth shows no progress. ·   In ages 2-11, decayed tooth surfaces increased with a greater impact on boys ·   Four out of 5 Americans aged 6 years and older experience cavities, irrespective of poverty or race/ethnicity status. ·   40% of children have eroded teeth.   (NEXT)   China Builds 27 Empty New York Cities   Epoch Times, January 20, 2022 As of 2016, China's empty apartment units could house New York City 27 times over. With that in mind, how could you afford to pay the construction mortgages on 70 million apartment units with no residents deeded to you by the evil genie? A challenging question. You would have to do some fast talking with the Chinese banks of the sort Trump managed with New York banks decades ago during the S&L crisis. Your only hope of avoiding being sucked into a black hole of debt defaults would be to hire some creative scoundrels disguised as accountants to help you persuade the banks to lend you additional billions (or more probably, trillions) to postpone the day of reckoning. Note that the extent to which you could succeed would only worsen the ultimate malinvestment problem. Your assets would not be enhanced in any way by being encumbered with additional debt. They would just become more costly. That is at least a $36.4 trillion question. Maybe a $45.9 trillion, or possibly even a $116.6 trillion question. The correct answer depends on China's actual debt level. Forbes reports the estimate of Professor Victor Shih of the University of California San Diego. Shih believes that Chinese official debt figures have proven woefully inadequate. In 2017, Shih put total Chinese debt at 328 percent of GDP (reported at $14 trillion), therefore $45.9 trillion. According to Shih, “total interest payments from June 2016 to June 2017 exceeded the incremental increase in nominal GDP by roughly 8 trillion RMB.” A collapse of China's asset bubble lies ahead. I doubt any Chinese tycoons are strolling the streets of Shanghai with their girlfriends, making jokes about street people being a trillion yuan richer than they are. That underscores a problem when the government of a country enlarges debt to magnitudes beyond the scale of assets held by even the wealthiest persons. That makes it all the more unlikely that mortgaged assets can be redeemed from hock while encumbered by anything like their current level of debt.   (NEXT)   IMF sees cost of COVID pandemic rising beyond $12.5 trillion estimate   IMF/OECD News 21/01/2022 The International Monetary Fund expects to raise its forecast that the COVID-19 pandemic will cost the global economy $12.5 trillion through 2024, the head of the global lender said on Thursday. IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva told an event hosted by the Financial Times that supply chain disruptions, inflation and tighter monetary policy were “throwing cold water on the recovery everywhere.” She said huge gaps in COVID-19 vaccine rates and the overall widening divergence between rich and poor caused by the pandemic, along with learning losses and increased gender impacts, would cause more protests, tensions and insecurity.   (NEXT)   The media blackout on Fauci's damning emails   They suggest something nefarious was up on the lab leak theory yet the press has refused to notice SPECTATOR WORLD, January 17, 2022 Last week saw another batch of emails drop from Anthony Fauci, and another media blackout as to their contents. The strategy by the press in cases like this has been pretty straightforward: ignore the story, wait for right-leaning media or Republicans to pick it up, then frame any attacks on the subject as tainted by partisanship. Last week, when confronted once again by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Fauci responded with more hyperbole and ad hominem. The media, meanwhile, framed the exchanges as “Rand Paul Attacks!” and “Anthony Fauci defends!” They refused to look at the information in the emails that Paul was asking about, refused to ask questions about them, refused to even report on them. They are interested in the bloodsport, not the truth. The reason for that is simple: the truth is becoming very problematic for the man who once conflated himself with science itself. The only reporting done on the emails by the New York Times, for instance, was a video clip from the Associated Press regarding the exchange with Senator Paul. What has not been covered with any sort of journalistic enthusiasm is the topic of the emails themselves, the most damning yet, which suggest that Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins, the former head of the NIH, purposefully downplayed the possibility of a lab leak in Wuhan, China, at the start of the pandemic because it might have damaged “international harmony” in the scientific community.   (NEXT)   Alberta Canada Inadvertently Published (and Quickly Deleted) Health Data Exposing that More Than Half of Vaccinated Deaths Have Been Counted as Unvaccinated   Gateway Pundit 23 January 2022 In yet another absolute bombshell revelation the government of Alberta, Canada exposed itself this week when it accidentally published damning evidence that exposes how the public health authorities have been manipulating the Covid-19 statistics. After seemingly realizing what it had just done, the corrupt Canadian province quickly scrambled to delete the incriminating data off their website, but, thanks to internet sleuths like Twitter user Metatron – and his substack post, we have the receipts. According to its latest Covid-19 update, the Alberta Government admitted to following the fraudulent standard that was in use by vaccine manufacturers during clinical trials – which is to ignore the adverse outcomes, including Covid infection, hospitalizations, and deaths, for fourteen days after vaccine administration – no matter how many doses they have had. But instead of just ignoring the cases like the vaccine manufacturers, the corrupt Alberta government has been lumping them in with the unvaxxed. In other words, anyone who was infected – was hospitalized – or even died, in the two weeks following their first, second, or even THIRD dose would be recorded as an unvaccinated case. And now, thanks to the now-deleted data, we can tell exactly how many cases have been fraudulently manipulated by inadvertently including the time from dose to infection for each of the events – and as it turns out, over half of the vaccinated deaths were added to the unvaccinated. Almost 56% of ‘recorded' Covid-related deaths among the vaccinated occurred within 14 days of vaccination – and almost 90% within 45 days, which is noteworthy because that is what's claimed to be the timeframe of the vaccine's effectiveness. As for hospitalizations, the numbers aren't that much better. Almost half of the severe cases among the vaccinated happened within the two-week window, meaning they were tallied as unvaccinated in the official record. 80% of which occurred within the first 45 days post-vaccination.   (NEXT)   COVID testing firm piled unprocessed swabs in trash bags, billed feds $113M   ARS TECHNICA  1/20/2022, Federal and state investigations into a large national chain of COVID-19 testing sites have turned up tests that were never labeled with patients' names, tests piled into trash bags stored for long periods at room temperature, tests that were never processed, and test results that were clearly fake. Behind the testing sites are two Illinois-based companies: Center for COVID Control (CCC) and Doctors Clinical Laboratory, Inc., which is said to carry out COVID PCR testing for CCC. The two companies share the same address, though CCC is owned by Chicago-area couple Akbar Syed and Aleya Siyaj, while the clinical company is owned by Mohammed Shujauddin. Together, the companies claim to provide rapid and PCR testing for COVID-19, with fast turnaround times and no appointments necessary. So far, they have collected more than 400,000 samples from over 300 locations across the US. And they have billed the federal government over $113 million for running many of those tests. The companies are currently under investigation by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as multiple states. On Wednesday, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison filed a lawsuit alleging numerous counts of deceptive or fraudulent practices by the pair. According to federal inspections reported by NBC News, CCC employees didn't even label some samples with patients' names. Inspection documents from federal investigators noted that "51 out of 51 patient specimen tubes contained in the box [they examined] were blank.”   (NEXT)   Why shoplifting is soaring across the US — and will only get worse   NEW YORK POST. January 22, 2022 Retail crime has been rising throughout the US for the past five years, with organized criminal rings targeting stores everywhere from Woonsocket (Rhode Island) to Greensboro (North Carolina) to Grafton (Wisconsin). The National Retail Federation reported that store losses mounted from $453,940 per $1 billion in sales in 2015 to $719,458 in 2020. The biggest increase over that period happened not during the pandemic but in 2019, when total losses from shoplifting surged to $61 billion, up from $50 billion the previous year. The COVID-19 lockdowns in 2020 and early 2021 moderated losses, largely because stores were closed or had curtailed operating hours. Now that retailing has resumed, crime has spiked again. Shoplifting no longer fits its traditional mold as a nonviolent crime perpetrated mostly by teens or substance-abusing adults. Nearly two-thirds of the retailers surveyed by the National Retail Federation said that violence associated with store thefts has risen, led by organized gangs that resell the goods they steal. Like retailers, top law-enforcement officials place some of the blame for the crime surge on a widespread lessening of penalties for shoplifting. California's recent headline-making “flash mob” shoplifting sprees have brought widespread attention to Proposition 47 — a 2014 state ballot initiative, supported by a range of left-leaning and libertarian groups, which, among other things, boosted the felony threshold for shoplifting from $450 of merchandise to $950. Soon after it passed, retailers in California began reporting a sharp uptick in retail theft, often in plain view of helpless store personnel and distressed customers. What has received far less attention, however, is the fact that California's Prop. 47 was not an outlier among states. In the past 10 years, nearly half of all states have boosted their thresholds for retail felony theft. Thirty-eight states now don't consider shoplifting a felony unless $1,000 or more of merchandise gets stolen. A 2020 National Retail Federation report on organized retail crime found that two-thirds of retailers in states that had raised their felony shoplifting minimums reported growing retail theft. (NEXT)   The Significance of the Nuremberg Code: The Universal Right of Informed Consent to Medical Interventions   By Alliance for Human Research Protection Global Research, September 20, 2021 The universal right of Informed Consent to medical interventions has been recognized in US law since at least 1914. 1. That year, the New York Court of Appeals established the right to informed consent to medical intervention in a case involving non-consensual surgery. Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hospital 105 N.E. 92, 93 N.Y. (1914) Justice Benjamin Cardozo articulated the court's reasoning: Every human being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine what shall be done with his own body; and a surgeon who performs an operation without his patient's consent commits an assault for which he is liable in damages.” 2. The 1947 Nuremberg Code is the most important legal document in the history of medical research ethics. It established 10 foundational principles of ethical clinical research. The first and foremost principle is unequivocal: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential”. It prohibits research to be conducted on human beings without the informed consent of the individual. 4. The first US Supreme Court decision in which the Nuremberg Code was invoked was in 1987.  The plaintiff was a Sergeant in the US Army who sought compensation — having been a victim in a covert CIA-sponsored, LSD mind-control experiment. 5. In 1994, the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments was tasked with investigating and documenting the scope of unethical US government human radiation experiments. The (ACHRE) Report (1995) includes CIA mind-control experiments and devotes two chapters to the Nuremberg Code, and describes the growing influence that the Nuremberg Doctors Trial and the Nuremberg Code had on the American medical establishment. 6. In 2001, the Maryland Court of Appeal explicitly cited the Nuremberg Code as a source of legally enforceable ethical standards in the case against the Kennedy Krieger Institute. The case involved a government lead abatement experiment that exposed inner city Black toddlers to lead paint. The purpose was to record the damaging effects of lead. The parents were not informed about the purpose or the risks. 7.  The case involved Pfizer which conducted an unapproved, trial of its experimental antibiotic, Trovan on children in Nigeria. The court found Pfizer guilty. Rabi Abdullahi, et al. v. Pfizer, Inc., 562 F.3d (2d Cir. 2009) “Among the nonconsensual experiments that the tribunal cited as a basis for their convictions were the testing of drugs for immunization against malaria, epidemic jaundice, typhus, smallpox and cholera. Seven of the convicted doctors were sentenced to death and the remaining eight were sentenced to varying terms of imprisonment. The American tribunal's conclusion that action that contravened the Code's first principle constituted a crime against humanity is a lucid indication of the international legal significance of the prohibition on nonconsensual medical experimentation.” Telford Taylor explained,“Nuernberg was based on enduring [legal] principles and not on temporary political expedients, and this fundamental point is apparent from the reaffirmation of the Nuernberg principles in Control Council Law No. 10, and their application and refinement in the 12 judgments rendered under that law during the 3-year period, 1947 to 1949.” 10. On March 7th an Israeli citizens group filed a a petition to the International Criminal Court charging the Israeli Government with violating the Nuremberg Code with its mandatory Vaccination policy Anshe Ha-Emet (People of the Truth) a fellowship, composed of Israeli doctors, lawyers and citizens, filed a complaint against the government national “medical experiment” without the informed consent of the citizens. Attorneys Ruth Makhachovsky and Aryeh Suchowolski filed the complaint stating: “When the heads of the Ministry of Health as well as the prime minister presented the vaccine in Israel and began the vaccination of Israeli residents, the vaccinated were not advised, that, in practice, they are taking part in a medical experiment and that their consent is required for this under the

On COI #220, Kyle Anzalone discusses the recent talks between Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. While no deal was reached, the two diplomats were able to make progress on limited issues. However, after the talks ended, America resumed its hostile policy by promising more weapons to Ukraine.  Kyle breaks down the recent CIA report on Havana Syndrome. The report - much to the displeasure of the mainstream media - finds HS is not caused by a foreign power.  Kyle updates the fallout from Obama's Libya War. Chaos and war have spread through Africa's Sahel in Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, and Chad. America has long backed France's terror war in the region. Biden sought to pull the U.S. from France's fight to maintain control over its former colonies. Though the administration ultimately increased America's support for the war to appease France after the AUKUS deal scuttled Paris' submarine agreement with Australia.  Odysee Rumble  Donate LBRY Credits bTTEiLoteVdMbLS7YqDVSZyjEY1eMgW7CP Donate Bitcoin 36PP4kT28jjUZcL44dXDonFwrVVDHntsrk Donate Bitcoin Cash Qp6gznu4xm97cj7j9vqepqxcfuctq2exvvqu7aamz6 Patreon Subscribe Star YouTube Facebook  Twitter  MeWe Apple Podcast  Amazon Music Google Podcasts Spotify iHeart Radio Support Our Sponsor Visit Paloma Verde and use code PEACE for 25% off our CBD

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing @ugochiiwuaba After only three years in America as an immigrant from Nigeria, Ugochi Iwuaba was fired from her job while pregnant with her third child who had just been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Instead of feeling sorry for herself, Ugochi chose to rise up and pursue her dream of being a fashion designer. She registered her company one month after giving birth and started her luxury fashion business with zero dollars. Today, Ugochi Iwuaba is making headlines, she has doubled her business within the past year, and one of her designs was even worn on this year's Met Gala red carpet. Ugochi's Afro-Western creations are a fusion of her West African culture with Western aesthetics inspired by her bold, colorful and flamboyant Nigerian culture. Her work has been featured in the San Diego Tribune, Discover Magazine, Authority Magazine, Influencive, E! Online, Runway Dubai and more. Hope you enjoy!

Buying items in small sachets, instead of full size packs, is nothing new in Nigeria. But over the past year, an ever wider range of products have become available in these small plastic pouches. Even sanitary pads are sold in packs of just two. They may be cheaper, but they aren't always economical in the long run. Inflation in Nigeria peaked at 18% last year. And food inflation reached a high of 23%. It means people's wages aren't stretching as far at the market. And people are finding they can't afford to buy full sized products. So, is the sachet economy here to stay? Host: Alan Kasujja Reporting: Olivia Ndubuisi #AfricaDaily

Or, at least, Ryan does! Plus, big (literally) numbers for Malawi and perfect kits for Zimbabwe. Group C - Ghana in need of a rebuild, Gabon not in need of their most famous player, and Achraf Hakimi is very very good.

Ban on online education classes in China A few months ago, we reported on the Chinese government's ban on online video gaming in children, where it restricted it to three hours a week. That was followed by a new set of regulations on private tutoring that has hit some of the biggest tech companies in China. While the new rules will certainly give young people more leisure, there's a lot more to it than children's well-being.

She's travelled across geographical and professional borders to find her true calling as Chief Executive Officer of Lifespan Spring Water Co; a business that is globally recognized for its award-winning quality standards and its local contributions to nation-building. The Portland-born powerhouse business influencer has found her niche and is on a mission to pour back into her town and country, the investment and resources she has received. It's Nayanna Williams on…The Entrepreneurial You. Cryptocurrency…what is it? The cryptocurrency industry has grown exponentially over the last decade. More and more people are becoming interested in the mysterious digital currency industry that carries more than fourteen thousand different cryptocurrencies traded publicly, at a value of almost 3 trillion as of November 2021; this is according to market research website coinmarketcap.com. With all this focused attention being paid to Cryptocurrency, here are some factoids you might find valuable. A cryptocurrency is a form of payment that can be exchanged online for goods and services. The currencies use blockchain technology that manages and records transactions across computers. "Crypto" refers to the various encryption algorithms and cryptographic techniques that safeguard these transactions. One of the things that make this market so interesting, is that there is no central authority to issue the currencies, they are theoretically immune to government meddling but are susceptible to taxation in some regions. Perhaps that's part of the reason cryptocurrency is not supported by all countries, with some like Nigeria, going as far as putting a ban on crypto exchanges. Now let's take a closer look at the world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization…Bitcoin. Launched in 2009, by an anonymous creator, Bitcoin has been described as fulfilling the need for an “electronic payment system based on cryptographic proof instead of trust”. Bitcoin transactions are stored on a public ledger containing information secured by blockchain, which should make it difficult to tamper with. This seems to be the biggest pull for investors because, since its public launch, one Bitcoin now sells for more than $62,000. Usd. And for those who may be wondering, yes bitcoin can be converted to cash. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-entrepreneurial-you/message

Ibibio Sound Machine - "Electricity," a 2021 single on Merge. Just about three years ago, when the world was in a very different place, KEXP celebrated International Clash Day by venturing across the pond to London for a showcase of upcoming artists that radiate the spirit of the Clash in vibrant, diverse ways. One of the most electrifying performances over those four days came from electro Afro-funk ensemble Ibibio Sound Machine. Fusing the polyrhythms of West African funk, highlife, disco, and post-punk, the Nigeria-born, London-based band light stages figuratively on fire with their genre-bending sound. This fall, the band released their first single since their 2019 LPDoko Mienwith a title fitting for a band with this much kinetic energy. “Electricity” sees Ibibio Sound Machine team up with Hot Chip for a pulsing electronic track with elements of West African instrumentation. ISM vocalist Eno Williams had this to say about “Electricity”: “Even in trying times, ‘without love, there's no electricity.' This one started out as an idea to mix Afrobeat with Giorgio Moroder–style synth vibes. The end section with Alfred's korego (Ghanaian 2-stringed folk guitar) solo was already there when we got into the studio, but then we added the big kick drum that happens underneath and Owen from Hot Chip's crazy drum machine percussion at the end, which gave it a futuristic Afro feel when mixed with the more talking drum parts.” Read the full post on KEXP.org Support the show: https://www.kexp.org/donate See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

He preached against anything he deemed un-Islamic or having a western influence. Locals gave the group a nickname, Boko Haram - meaning "western education is forbidden".

It's the world's first trial related to state-sponsored torture under Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. And after a seven-month ban, Nigeria has restored access to Twitter, after the social networking giant agreed to a number of conditions that may permit tighter government control of social media. Plus, the lights went out in Argentina this week after a heat wave led to a higher demand for power, putting a strain on the electrical grid. The power outages led to protests in several Buenos Aires neighborhoods.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Donnerstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Human Rights Watch kritisiert Umgang mit Autokratien Human Rights Watch hat demokratische Länder für die Zusammenarbeit mit autoritären Herrschern kritisiert. Oft unterstützten sie autokratische Systeme, um Migration zu unterbinden, den Terrorismus zu bekämpfen oder für vermeintliche Stabilität zu sorgen, anstatt demokratische Prinzipien zu verteidigen, erklärte die Menschenrechtsorganisation anlässlich der Vorstellung ihres Jahresberichts in Genf. So lieferten etwa die USA weiter Waffen an Ägypten und Saudi-Arabien, obwohl US-Präsident Joe Biden eine menschenrechtsbasierte Außenpolitik versprochen habe. Iran und Venezuela ohne UN-Stimmrecht Der Iran, Venezuela und eine Reihe weiterer Staaten haben ihre Stimmrechte in der UN-Generalversammlung wegen Zahlungsrückständen vorübergehend verloren. Generalsekretär António Guterres teilte mit, der Iran müsse umgerechnet mindestens 16,1 Millionen Euro und Venezuela 34,8 Millionen Euro zahlen, um in dem größten UN-Organ wieder mitbestimmen zu können. Auch der Sudan und die Republik Kongo verloren ihr Stimmrecht. Nach UN-Regularien wird jenen Staaten das Recht darauf entzogen, deren Schulden der Höhe ihrer Mitgliedsbeiträge der vergangenen zwei Jahre entsprechen oder höher sind. Französisch-iranische Wissenschaftlerin wieder in Haft Die im Iran verurteilte Anthropologin Fariba Adelkhah ist wieder in das berüchtigte Evin-Gefängnis bei Teheran gebracht worden. Die französische Regierung reagierte empört und forderte die sofortige Freilassung der 62-jährigen Franko-Iranerin. Ihre erneute Inhaftierung sei "rein politisch und willkürlich" und werde sich negativ auf die Beziehungen zwischen Paris und Teheran auswirken, so ein Sprecher des Außenministeriums. Adelkhah war 2019 festgenommen und im Jahr darauf zu fünf Jahren Haft wegen Propaganda gegen das System verurteilt worden. Seit Oktober 2020 stand sie unter Hausarrest. Urteil im Al-Khatib-Prozess erwartet Vor dem Oberlandesgericht im rheinland-pfälzischen Koblenz wird an diesem Donnerstag das Urteil im weltweit ersten Prozess um Staatsfolter in Syrien erwartet. Dem Angeklagten werden unter anderem Mord in 30 Fällen und Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit vorgeworfen. Unter seiner Führung sollen vor zehn Jahren im berüchtigten Al-Khatib-Gefängnis in Damaskus mindestens 4000 Häftlinge mit Schlägen, Tritten und Elektroschocks gefoltert worden sein. Die Bundesanwaltschaft fordert lebenslange Haft und die Feststellung der besonderen Schwere der Schuld. Die Verteidigung plädiert auf Freispruch. Nigeria hebt Twitter-Sperre auf Nach rund sieben Monaten hat der nigerianische Präsident Mohammadu Buhari den Kurzmitteilungsdienst Twitter wieder zugelassen. Laut Medienberichten hatte das Unternehmen zuvor Bedingungen erfüllt. Unter anderem gehe es dabei um die Besteuerung nach nigerianischem Recht und den Umgang mit verbotenen Veröffentlichungen. Twitter war in Nigeria im Juni "bis auf weiteres" abgeschaltet worden. Die EU, die USA und andere kritisierten das Vorgehen damals scharf. Twitter ist im bevölkerungsreichsten Staat Afrikas beliebt: Fast 40 Millionen der insgesamt 200 Millionen Einwohner haben ein Twitter-Konto. Aus für "goldene Pässe" in Bulgarien Die neue bulgarische Regierung hat das Ende der Vergabe sogenannter goldener Pässe angekündigt. Das Kabinett von Ministerpräsident Kiril Petkow begründete den Schritt damit, dass das 2013 eingeführte Programm nicht wie beabsichtigt zu bedeutenden Investitionen in die bulgarische Wirtschaft geführt habe. Die EU-Kommission hatte die Praxis der Vergabe von Staatsbürgerschaften gegen finanzielle Zusagen lange kritisiert und ihr Ende gefordert. 2020 leitete sie deshalb ein Vertragsverletzungsverfahren gegen Zypern und Malta ein. Im Juni drohte die Brüsseler Behörde auch Bulgarien mit einem Verfahren. Cyberattacke auf US-Haftanstalt Ein Hackerangriff hat ein Gefängnis im US-Bundesstaat New Mexico lahmgelegt. Laut Gerichtsdokumenten wurden vergangene Woche die Sicherheitskameras sowie das automatische Türsystem der Haftanstalt im Bezirk Bernalillo außer Betrieb gesetzt. Auch andere öffentliche Einrichtungen in der Region nahe der Großstadt Albuquerque waren von dem Angriff betroffen. Unbekannte Erpresser hatten offenbar die Festplatten der Computer mit einer sogenannten Ransomware verschlüsselt. Ob sie auch Lösegeld gefordert haben, wurde nicht bekannt.
