Bad Lip Reading of Trump-Kim summit is more believable than what really happened
Wed, 20 Jun 2018 21:12:57 -0400

Bad Lip Reading of Trump-Kim summit is more believable than what really happenedBad Lip Readings are back and they're better than ever.  The Trump-Kim summit in Singapore had a plethora of cringey moments, from the bizarre movie trailer released by the White House to when Trump suggested that North Korea build condos instead of exploding cannons in the ocean. But there were parts of the summit that the general public didn't get a glimpse of — so Bad Lip Reading imagined what we couldn't hear during Trump's bonding session with the North Korean dictator. Gems include Kim calling Trump "buddy" and "homie," while Trump responds, "That's pretty weird."  In the spoof, Trump also admits to reading Kim's diary, putting him on the spot for "wanting to grow up and get in a rocket ship." Trump also experiences some gastrointestinal distress, burping out "hey, look at the tiny little zucchini."  "I'm the best," Kim cheers for himself.  Somehow this whole Bad Lip Reading is more believable than Trump calling Kim — a brutal dictator with a history of human rights violations — a guy who "loves his people" and has a "great personality." 


Killing dogs for meat illegal, rules S. Korean court
Thu, 21 Jun 2018 02:45:48 -0400

Killing dogs for meat illegal, rules S. Korean courtA South Korean court has ruled the killing of dogs for meat is illegal, in a landmark decision that animal rights activists said Thursday could pave the way to outlawing eating canines. Despite no specific ban, authorities have invoked hygiene regulations or animal protection laws that ban cruel slaughter methods to crack down on dog farms and restaurants ahead of international events such as the Pyeongchang Olympics. Animal rights group Care last year filed complaints against a dog farm operator in Bucheon, accusing him of "killing animals without proper reasons" and violating building and hygiene regulations, and prosecutors later charged him.

Assad presses assault in southwest Syria, civilians fleeBy Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian government forces pounded rebel-held areas of the southwest with artillery on Thursday, in a steady escalation by President Bashar al-Assad who has vowed to win back the area bordering Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 12,500 civilians had fled the town of Busra al-Hariri and nearby areas of Deraa province in the last two days. The United States has warned it would take "firm and appropriate measures" in response to government violations of a "de-escalation" deal it brokered with Russia last year to contain the conflict in the southwest.

U.S. centers force migrant children to take drugs: lawsuit(Reuters) - Immigrant children are being routinely and forcibly given a range of psychotropic drugs at U.S. government-funded youth shelters to manage their trauma after being detained and in some cases separated from parents, according to a lawsuit. Children held at facilities such as the Shiloh Treatment Center in Texas are almost certain to be administered the drugs, irrespective of their condition, and without their parents' consent, according to the lawsuit filed by the Los Angeles-based Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law. The Shiloh center, which specializes in services for children and youths with behavioral and emotional problems, did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Malaysia reopens probe into Mongolian model's murder as pressure builds on former premier Najib Razak
Thu, 21 Jun 2018 08:57:50 -0400

Malaysia reopens probe into Mongolian model's murder as pressure builds on former premier Najib RazakThe Malaysian police are set to reopen an investigation into the murder of a Mongolian model in 2006, in a politically charged case that could add to the woes of Najib Razak, the beleaguered former prime minister.  Altantuya Shaariibuu, 28, was killed and blown up with military grade explosives in a forest near the capital, Kuala Lumpur, after being kidnapped late at night outside the home of her alleged lover Abdul Razak Baginda - a defence analyst who advised Mr Najib between 2000 and 2008.  Two former police officers, Sirul Azhar Umar and Azilah Hadri, were sentenced to death for the crime but reports have alleged that they served as bodyguards for Mr Najib, who was deputy prime minister at the time of her gruesome death.  Sirul fled to Australia to seek asylum and is currently being held at a detention centre in Sydney.  Malaysia's Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad meets Dr Shaariibuu Setev, father of Altantuya Shaariibuu on Wednesday Credit: Malaysian PM The police confirmed to The Star newspaper that they were reopening their investigations after Shaaribuu’s father flew to Malaysia from Mongolia to file a fresh statement.  Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s prime minister, who ousted Mr Najib in a shock election result in May, pledged his support for Setev Shaaribuu’s case “if there is new evidence”, after meeting with him on Wednesday evening, reported Channel News Asia.  Mr Shaaribuu has alleged that the former government tried to block the truth from emerging, and that the true plot behind his daughter’s murder was covered up.  Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor are facing a corruption probe Credit: Mohd Rasfan/AFP In his statement to the police, he named a former aide to Mr Najib as a “crucial witness.” Mr Najib himself has always denied knowing the victim.  However, the timing of the case could spell more trouble for the ousted leader, who is currently banned from leaving the country amid another investigation into an alleged multi-billion dollar corruption scandal involving the 1Malaysia Development Berhad state fund, that he earlier founded.  In claims made to Reuters on Tuesday Dr Mahathir said that the authorities have “an almost perfect case” against Mr Najib on charges of embezzlement, misappropriation and bribery linked to 1MDB.  Mr Najib responded in his first interview since his stunning election defeat, telling the news agency that he knew nothing about money from the state fund appearing in his personal bank account.  He claimed his advisors and the management and board of 1MDB had wrongly kept the embezzlement of funds a secret from him.  Public anger over the scandal, which US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has described as “kleptocracy at its worst”, was a significant factor in his election defeat. Malaysian police seize a huge haul of handbags belonging to Najib Razak's wife Credit: Ariffin Jamar/AFP Mr Najib insisted in the interview that he did not know if hundreds of millions of dollars that moved through his personal account was from 1MDB, and if money from the fund was eventually laundered to acquire assets globally, including yachts, paintings and jewellery.  He did shed some light, however, on the origin of dozens of luxury bags that were recently seized by the police from properties linked to his family.  The handbags were gifts and wedding presents to his wife and daughter, and had nothing to do with 1MDB, he said.  “These were gifts, particularly with my daughter’s they were tagged, they were actually labelled: when, by whom,” he said.  He added that his son-in-law, Daniyar Nazarbayev, the nephew of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the Kazakh president, also gifted many bags to Rosmah Mansor, Mr Najib’s wife.  “People might find it hard to understand, but my son-in-law for example, he gets Birkin from his source, five or six at one go,” he said. “His family has got some means, so it has nothing to do with 1MDB if it comes from Kazakhstan.”

Ericsson needs industries to embrace 5G to underpin its recoverySTOCKHOLM/LONDON (Reuters) - Ericsson needs a range of industries to embrace 5G network services if the equipment maker is to get a long-term boost that would allow it to progress from cost-cutting to expansion. For now, the Swedish company is focusing on a cost-savings plan running until 2020 to shore up profitability, hoping that growth will then return as the pace of 5G network upgrades picks up early in the following decade. Having struggled with flagging revenue since 4G sales peaked in the middle of the decade, Ericsson is pinning its hopes for revived growth on the emergence of new mobile businesses in 10 broad sectors such as manufacturing, energy and public safety.
