|Palestinian journalist wins appeal over Gaza graft report|
|Sun, 24 Mar 2019 20:53:41 -0400|
A Palestinian journalist was acquitted on appeal over an investigative report about corruption in the Gaza Strip Monday, according to Amnesty International and a campaign group. In a 2016 report for Al-Araby TV, Hajar Harb alleged that doctors were writing false medical reports to let people leave Gaza for treatment, one of the few reasons Israel allows Palestinians out of the blockaded strip run by Hamas. The appeals court in Gaza "acquitted journalist Hajar Harb of all charges and closed her file," he said.
|Apple News+ is a $9.99 subscription service for magazines and newspapers|
|Mon, 25 Mar 2019 13:17:11 -0400|
Apple's "show time" event kicked off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET today, and Tim Cook has taken the stage. While we are excited to see what Apple has in store for the world of streaming entertainment, the first announcement today is about Apple News. As expected, Apple is making use of its acquisition of Texture's magazine subscription service and add magazines to its new service, which it has dubbed Apple News+. Over 300 magazines will be featured in Apple News+, such as National Geographic, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair, and more. In addition to magazines, the service will also feature some of the world's top newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal. Apple News+ will cost $9.99/month. All of the premium content can be found in the new News+ tab, which lives at the bottom of the Apple News app. You can save your favorite magazines as well, so that you won't ever miss a new issue. Apple also showed off covers with moving images, and demonstrated how the magazines have been successfully ported to both the small screen of the iPhone and the larger display of the iPad. Apple also announced that it will not share demographic or subscriber information with publishers, which explains why some major names didn't make the cut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im5c5WR9vMQ As Apple explained during its keynote, it would cost more than $8,000 to subscribes every magazine and newspaper in Apple News+ separately. This is "the only place" where you can pay for access to all of them, plus, you can share your subscription with your family, so you won't all have to pay for your own accounts. And the first month is free. Apple News+ will be available in the US and Canada first, and reach Australia and the UK in the fall. If you want to try out Apple News+, you'll be able to do so later today after an iOS update rolls out.

Theresa May will face up to her own desperately weak political position on Monday as members of Parliament move to take over Brexit policy and her own ministers plot to oust her. The U.K. prime minister is under pressure from colleagues inside her Cabinet to name a date when she will step down, with some arguing this would help her win support for her Brexit deal, people familiar with the matter said. May is hoping for one more chance to put the divorce agreement she’s negotiated with the European Union to a vote in the House of Commons this week.

|German billionaire family to donate €10m after Nazi past revealed|
|Mon, 25 Mar 2019 14:01:38 -0400|
One of Germany’s richest families has spoken of its “shame” and pledged to donate €10 million (£8.5 million) after historic ties to the Nazi regime were uncovered. The Reimann family owns major interests in brands including Krispy Kreme donuts, the Pret a Manger sandwich chain and Clearasil skincare products, and is estimated to be worth as much as €33 billion (£28 billion). It emerged at the weekend that the family business had close ties to the Nazi regime and used slave labour during the Second World War. Albert Reimann Sr and Albert Reimann Jr, the two men who headed the business during the Nazi era, were “avowed Hitler supporters” and “convinced National Socialists”, according to details published by Bild am Sonntag newspaper. Albert Reimann Sr donated funds to the SS as early as 1931, two years before Hitler rose to power. “Reimann Sr and Reimann Jr were guilty. Both businessmen have passed away, but they belonged in prison,” Peter Harf, the family spokesman and chairman of its JAB Holding Company, told Bild. Mr Harf said the details were not new to the family, which commissioned a historian to research its Nazi-era history three years ago and was horrified by the results “We were speechless,” he said. “We were ashamed and white as sheets. You cannot gloss over that. Those crimes are abhorrent.” His comments were a rare public statement from a family which usually avoids the limelight and does not give interviews. Mr Harf said Albert Reimann Sr and Albert Reimann Jr had not talked about their Nazi past, and that the family had assumed the full details had emerged in a 1978 report, but younger members began to ask questions after discovering old family documents. Bild submitted its findings to Professor Christopher Kopper of Bielefeld University, a leading expert on German economic history in the Nazi era. “In my opinion, the Reimanns were convinced National Socialist entrepreneurs,” Prof Kopper told the newspaper. “While most company bosses and managers only sided with the Nazis after they seized power, this was already the case with the Reimanns in 1931. Father and son Reimann were obviously not political opportunists, but National Socialists out of conviction.” The family said the donation would be made "to a suitable organisation".
