Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Montag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Regime kündigt Amnestie an Myanmar will 5600 politische Gefangene freilassen. Sie hatten an Protesten gegen den Putsch teilgenommen und waren von der Militärjunta festgenommen worden. Die Amnestie habe humanitäre Hintergründe, hieß es im staatlichen Fernsehen. General Min Aung Hlaing, der das Land seit dem Putsch am 1. Februar führt, hatte zuvor in einer Ansprache erklärt, die Militärregierung wolle die Ordnung wiederherstellen. Seit der Absetzung der demokratisch gewählten Regierung kommt es immer wieder zu Protesten, bei denen nach UN-Schätzung mehr als 1100 Menschen von Sicherheitskräften getötet wurden. Unmut wegen Bitcoin-Einführung In El Salvador sind Tausende gegen die Regierung von Präsident Nayib Bukele auf die Straße gegangen. Der Protest in der Hauptstadt San Salvador richtete sich unter anderem gegen die Einführung des Bitcoins als offizielle Währung neben dem Dollar. Auf Protestplakaten waren Aufschriften zu lesen wie "Nein zur Diktatur" und "Bitcoin ist Betrug". El Salvador hatte Anfang September als erstes Land der Welt die Kryptowährung als offizielles Zahlungsmittel eingeführt und 200 Wechselautomaten im Land aufgestellt. In der Bevölkerung des mittelamerikanischen Landes wird dies mit großer Skepsis gesehen. Bande entführt US-Missionare Im Karibikstaat Haiti laufen die Bemühungen, 16 US-Bürger und einen Kanadier aus der Gewalt von Kidnappern zu befreien. Es handelt sich um christliche Missionare und deren Kinder. Nach Angaben aus haitianischen Sicherheitskreisen hatte eine Bande namens "400 Mawozo" die 17-köpfige Gruppe am Samstag in der Nähe von Port-au-Prince in ihre Gewalt gebracht. Haiti ist seit Jahren von politischem Chaos und krimineller Gewalt geplagt. Die Zahl der Entführungen ist umgerechnet auf die Einwohnerzahl die höchste der Welt. Parteiloser fordert Orban heraus Bei der Parlamentswahl 2022 in Ungarn soll Peter Marki-Zay als Spitzenkandidat der Opposition gegen Ministerpräsident Viktor Orban antreten. Der parteilose 49-Jährige entschied die Vorwahlen der Opposition mit 57 Prozent der Stimmen für sich. Sechs bisher zerstrittene Parteien sollen Marki-Zay im Wahlkampf gegen Orban unterstützen. Eine derartige Vorwahl fand in Ungarn jetzt zum ersten Mal statt. Marki-Zay war erst 2018 in die Politik eingestiegen. Damals gewann er die Bürgermeisterwahl in einer Stadt, die als Hochburg der Orban-Partei Fidesz galt. Facebook setzt auf Standort Europa Der Social-Media-Anbieter Facebook will binnen fünf Jahren in der Europäischen Union 10.000 hochqualifizierte Arbeitsplätze schaffen, um die virtuelle Welt "Metaverse" zu bauen. Das kündigte Topmanager Nick Clegg in einem Blogeintrag an. Dies sei "ein Vertrauensbeweis in die Stärke der europäischen Tech-Industrie und das Potenzial europäischer Tech-Talente", schrieb Clegg. Mit "Metaverse" will der US-Konzern eine virtuelle Online-Welt erschaffen, in der Nutzer sich treffen, Geld ausgeben, Medien konsumieren und möglicherweise sogar arbeiten können. Großbritannien setzt auf Kernkraft Die britische Regierung setzt einem Zeitungsbericht zufolge auf Atomenergie, um ihre Klimaziele zu erreichen. Noch vor den Wahlen im Jahr 2024 solle die Finanzierung eines neuen Kernkraftwerks erfolgen, berichtet der "Telegraph". Man versuche, "in den nächsten Jahren mindestens ein weiteres großes Atomprojekt zu genehmigen, um die Energiesicherheit zu stärken und Tausende von Arbeitsplätzen zu schaffen", sagte ein Regierungssprecher der Nachrichtenagentur Reuters. Als möglicher Standort gilt ein bestehendes Reaktor-Areal in der südost­-englischen Grafschaft Suffolk. München geht in Führung Im Topspiel der Fußball-Bundesliga hat der FC Bayern München am Sonntag mit 5 zu 1 gegen Bayer Leverkusen gewonnen.

POUTINE, LE MAÎTRE DU JEU – 17/10/21 ÉMISSION SPÉCIALE Invités FRANÇOIS CLEMENCEAU Rédacteur en chef international - « Le Journal du Dimanche » PHILIPPE DESSERTINE Directeur de l'institut de Haute Finance CLÉMENTINE FAUCONNIER Politologue spécialiste de la Russie Maîtresse de conférences en science politique - Université de Haute-Alsace LAURE MANDEVILLE Grand reporter - « Le Figaro » Ancienne correspondante en Russie Le Président américain Joe Biden l'a qualifié de “tueur” en mars dernier, un compliment qui lui a très vite été retourné. Une escalade verbale au parfum de guerre froide entre le président américain et Vladimir Poutine. Pourtant, le chef du Kremlin n'a jamais paru aussi fort : après 22 ans au pouvoir et une nouvelle victoire aux élections en septembre dernier, une révision constitutionnelle le rend désormais éligible jusqu'en 2036, et donc plus «tsarifié» que jamais. En deux décennies, Poutine a ainsi réussi à éliminer toute réelle concurrence politique autour de lui. Son seul adversaire sérieux, Alexeï Navalny, croupit dans une colonie pénitentiaire après avoir été empoisonné ; ses partisans sont arrêtés par milliers et les pressions occidentales n'y font rien. Porté par des médias aux ordres, Poutine reste soutenu, en apparence du moins, par 60 % de sa population, malgré la pandémie et une économie au ralenti. Sur la scène internationale, le maître du Kremlin multiplie les offensives : ingérences électorales, annexions territoriales, affaires d'espionnage, recours à des armes interdites … Poutine s'affranchit de toutes les règles et rien ne semble arrêter cet ancien espion qui rêve d'une Russie au centre du jeu, et vivant dans une paranoïa - alimentée par des services secrets devenus surpuissants - de l'ennemi aux portes du pays. En pleine actualité, la Russie de Poutine inquiète à différents niveaux. Gros exportateur de gaz, elle est accusée de chantage énergétique sur les Européens avec des prix qui bondissent à la veille de l'hiver. L'enjeu serait de contraindre l'Europe à s'engager sur des contrats de plusieurs années.Son rapprochement avec la Chine pose aussi question. Ces deux régimes autoritaires s'épaulent dans leur lecture commune des relations internationales. En France enfin, alors que la campagne pour la présidentielle démarre, l'éventualité d'une ingérence russe est redoutée par beaucoup. La question est en réalité de savoir jusqu'où Poutine est prêt à aller pour se maintenir au pouvoir. Quel est son pouvoir de nuisance au sein de nos démocraties occidentales, dont il est devenu le meilleur ennemi? Des questions que nous avons posées à ceux qui ont directement côtoyé Vladimir Poutine : Le porte-parole du Kremlin mais également François hollande ou l'actuel Ministre des affaires étrangères. A l'occasion d'une nouvelle soirée spéciale C dans l'air, Caroline Roux vous emmène à la rencontre d'un homme à sang froid et à la poigne de fer. Une personnalité rude et glaciale, ceinture noire de la diplomatie dans un monde digne des plus grands films d'espionnage.

The Port of Los Angeles will now be running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, under a new plan announced by President Biden. Right now his administration is juggling a lot of problems that are weighing down voter confidence in his presidency: supply chain logjams, rising inflation, a slowing job market and gridlock in Congress. The persistent list of problems now 10 months into Biden's first term runs counter to the “return to normal” message he successfully ran on when he beat then-President Trump in 2020. But is the president being proactive, or is he opening himself up to blame for problems plaguing the entire global supply chain that are mostly out of his control? This week, we bring on special guest Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report to talk about what voters want from the economy and the president right now. Some Americans are feeling a lingering sense of unease, as the country continues to face labor and goods shortages tied to the pandemic. Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats still can't come to an agreement to pass Biden's domestic agenda. How does political polarization affect the way voters think about the administration's handling of the economy? We discuss. Next on the show: Redistricting is underway as we head into next year's midterm elections. As was the case 10 years ago, Republicans have an advantage because they control more state legislatures, while some Democratic states, like California, have put redistricting decisions in the hands of independent commissions. But how many seats could Republicans realistically pick up next year through redistricting alone, especially since demographic changes in some major swing states would seem to favor Democrats? A hotly contested gubernatorial election in Virginia next month could give us some clues. Also, what the heck is ‘bacon-mandering'? Then: our panel discusses vaccine mandates and religious exemptions, specifically among Catholics. The Catholic Church's official position is that getting vaccinated is morally permissible, but sincerely held religious beliefs should be honored as a valid basis for exemption. As vaccine mandates become more commonplace, how does society negotiate those tensions? Finally: Why adults need to stop making Halloween sexy, and why the “woke” Fed is really just doing its job.

President Biden addressed the ongoing supply chain problems that are jacking up prices for consumers and slowing economic recovery, and said that the Port of Los Angeles will begin operating 24/7. Shippers including FedEx and UPS also said that they would commit to shipping more packages during off-peak hours.  It's a big week for booster shots. Today, the FDA authorization committee will discuss a potential third dose of Moderna's vaccine, and on Friday, it will look at a possible booster J&J's. The FDA will also turn its attention to the safety of mixing and matching different vaccines, which could make the whole booster process a lot easier if it's approved.  And in headlines: Social Security recipients will get a boost to their checks by 5.9 percent in 2022, the U.S. will open its borders to Canadian and Mexican travelers next month, and trans workers at Netflix will stage a walkout to protest statements made by the company's CEO.

In the National Women's Soccer League, four coaches have been ousted who were accused of verbal and emotional abuse, creating a toxic work environment for women, and sexually coercing players. The league's commissioner also stepped down this month. “The big question here is: Who can they find to really take this league and make sure players are safe, make sure the league stays alive?” says Molly Hensley-Clancy, sports investigative reporter for The Washington Post.

You know what they say about one man's trash becoming another's treasure, right? At the border, the journey from trash to treasure often involves an actual trip from San Diego to Tijuana, where things like furniture, appliances and other used or discarded objects find a second life.
