The appeals court in Gaza "acquitted journalist Hajar Harb of all charges and closed her file," he said.

  • Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was carrying an iPhone when she was arrested last year

    Golocal247.com news

    The tech industry certainly has its share of scandals, but the drama surrounding Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou certainly takes things to the next level. This past December, Wanzhou was arrested in Canada (at the behest of the United States) on charges of wire fraud and improper business dealings with Iran. Wanzhou may ultimately be extradited to the U.S. as China, not surprisingly, has vehemently denied the allegations on Wanzhou's behalf. As Huawei executives would have you believe, the charges are simply a means to hinder the company's growth.The legal case involving Wanzhou is still playing out, but recently released court documents include a surprising revelation regarding the gear Wanzhou had in her possession when she was arrested. Originally made public by the Twitter account theBreakerNews, it turns out that Wanzhou had a penchant for Apple products.Upon her arrest, Wanzhou had a MacBook Air, an iPad Pro, and an iPhone 7 Plus in her possession. She was also carrying a Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design which was likely her primary device. Still, it has to be somewhat embarrassing for an executive of a company looking to dethrone Apple to be apprehended with a slew of Apple products.No you might be naturally thinking: "So she had a few Apple products on her, what's the big deal?" Well, if we go back just a few months, you may recall that two Huawei employees who were manning the company's Twitter account were demoted after they sent out a celebratory New Years tweet from an iPhone. The tweet was promptly deleted once word began to spread, but the higher-ups at Huawei were quite displeased and also cut the salary of the employees in question.Further, an internal Huawei memo obtained by Reuters at the time revealed that Huawei executives believed "the incident caused damage to the Huawei brand."All that said, Wanzho's penchant for Apple products isn't a good look.

  • Donald Trump declares 'complete exoneration' as Robert Mueller finds no collusion with Russia

    Golocal247.com news

    Donald Trump and his aides did not collude with Russia in the 2016 election campaign, special counsel Robert Mueller concluded in his report, according to a summary from the US attorney general.  Mr Mueller also did not find that Mr Trump obstructed justice in his alleged attempts to thwart the investigation, instead choosing not to reach a conclusion and simply presenting the evidence.  The US attorney general and his deputy - two Trump appointees - then decided there was not enough proof to charge the US president with obstruction of justice.  Mr Mueller also decided to recommend no further indictments and has no sealed indictments waiting to be made public, meaning he will not bring any more charges now his probe is complete. The findings amount to a major victory for Mr Trump after 22 months of Mr Mueller’s investigation and triggered celebration from the White House and leading Republicans.  No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2019 In his first reaction Mr Trump said: "It's complete exoneration. No collusion, no obstruction." The president said it was "a shame" that the country and his presidency had to go through the investigation and called it an "illegal take down that failed".  Mr Trump also appeared to call for an investigation into the Mueller probe itself and how it began.  Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said: “The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States.” Robert Mueller spent 22 months investigation allegations of collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia Credit:  Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images North America Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator close to Mr Trump, tweeted: “Good day for the rule of law. Great day for President Trump and his team.  “No collusion and no obstruction. The cloud hanging over President Trump has been removed by this report.” However Democrats are demanding that Mr Mueller’s full confidential report be published and that all the underlying documents be handed to Congress so they can be reviewed. The topline findings from Mr Mueller’s report were contained in a four-page summary written by William Barr, the US attorney general.  The summary was submitted to senior congressmen and released to the public on Sunday afternoon, giving the first insight into what Mr Mueller had concluded.  Democrats have demanded that William Barr, the US attorney general, release the report in full Credit: Alex Wroblewski/Bloomberg In the summary, Mr Mueller is quoted saying: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities." Elsewhere Mr Mueller is quoted saying: "The evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference". That finding was effectively a victory for the US president, who has been saying constantly during the two years since he entered the White House that there had been “no collusion”.  As well as clearing Mr Trump and his campaign of conspiring with the Kremlin, Mr Mueller’s report also dealt with the allegations that the US president had obstructed justice by hampering the investigation.  Mr Barr's four-page summary of the Mueller report Credit: Reuters Mr Mueller did not reach a decision on whether Mr Trump had obstructed justice - meaning it was not a total victory for the president - instead deciding not to come to a conclusion. Mr Barr’s summary cites Mr Mueller referencing “difficult issues” of law and fact - a likely nod to Department of Justice guidelines that say a sitting president cannot be indicted.  The summary of the report quotes Mr Mueller saying of obstruction of justice: “While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him". Given Mr Mueller decided not to make a decision on obstruction of justice but instead just hand over evidence, the Justice Department's leaders was left to made a determination. Mr Barr and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, decided there was not enough evidence to conclude that Mr Trump had acted with “corrupt intent”, and therefore decided he had not obstructed justice.  The summary did make passing reference to evidence of potential obstruction of justice by Mr Trump that has not yet featured in public reporting and which Mr Mueller looked at, but gave no more details. Congratulations ⁦@POTUS⁩ ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ Today you won the 2016 election all over again. And got a gift for the 2020 election. They’ll never get you because they’ll never “get” you. MuellerReportNoCollusionNoObstructionWent2MichiganNotMoscowpic.twitter.com/gFqLLLb1fS— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) March 24, 2019 The findings left the president and his allies delighted.  Mr Trump said: “It was a complete and total exoneration.  It's a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it's a shame that your president has had to go through this.” The president also hinted that he wants somebody - possibly Republicans in Congress - to investigate the Mueller probe itself, which he believes should never have been created.  “This was an illegal take down that failed.  And hopefully, somebody is going to be looking at the other side,” Mr Trump said.  Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to Mr Trump, said in a public message to the president: “Today you won the 2016 election all over again. And got a gift for the 2020 election.” Democrats found themselves in a politically uncomfortable position, being asked during TV interviews whether they agreed there was no collusion and whether they trusted Mr Mueller - a man whose integrity they had repeatedly trumpeted in public.  Nancy Pelosi, left, and Chuck Schumer - the most senior Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate Credit: Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the two most senior Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate respectively, demanded the full report be published.  “Attorney general Barr’s letter raises as many questions as it answers,” the pair said in a joint statement.  “The fact that special counsel Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay.   “Given Mr Barr’s public record of bias against the special counsel’s inquiry, he is not a neutral observer and is not in a position to make objective determinations about the report.” Mr Barr said in his summary letter that he planned to release parts of Mr Mueller’s report, but it remains to be seen how much will be made public.  Sign up for your essential, twice-daily briefing from The Telegraph with our free Front Page newsletter.

  • Apple's new credit card gets compared to Billy McFarland's credit card scam

    Golocal247.com news

    Someone didn't watch the Fyre Festival documentaries. Apple announced its groundbreaking new pay feature during its event on Monday: A titanium credit card with no card number, no signature, no CVV, and no expiration date. All of the vital information would be stored in the Wallet app, so it's less of a credit card and more of a physical way to pay through the app. As wonderful as it seems, Twitter users couldn't help but compare it to Magnises, the credit card/social club scam that Fyre Fest grifter Billy McFarland came up with before the disastrous music festival. Like Apple Card, Magnises' appeal was that the card was metal, not just plastic.

    The Oklahoma Supreme Court's decision was a win for the state's attorney general, whose case is set to be the first to face trial of roughly 2,000 lawsuits nationally seeking to hold opioid manufacturers responsible for contributing to the epidemic. Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter's 2017 lawsuit accuses Purdue, Johnson & Johnson & Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd of engaging in deceptive marketing that downplayed the risks of addiction associated with opioid pain drugs while overstating their benefits. The trial delay bid came as Purdue, owned by members of the wealthy Sackler family, was exploring filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to address potential liabilities stemming from the lawsuits, people familiar with the matter have told Reuters.

  • Donald Trump says people who pushed 'evil' Russian collusion claims will be investigated after Mueller findings

    Golocal247.com news

    Donald Trump has vowed that people who pushed "evil" claims he colluded with Russia will be investigated after special counsel Robert Mueller found there had been no conspiracy with the Kremlin.  The US president said those making the allegations over his 2016 election conduct had been “treasonous” and done “very bad things”, adding that they "will certainly be looked at". The White House went on the attack on Monday after claiming “complete exoneration” from Mr Mueller, despite the fact the special counsel himself did not clear Mr Trump over obstruction of justice.  Sarah Sanders and Rudy Giuliani, the president’s press secretary and lawyer, demanded the Democrats and “liberal media” who talked up collusion apologise in a message echoed by high profile supporters.  Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator close to the president, held a press conference to declare he wanted a new special counsel to investigate FBI and Justice Department officials who begun the probe into Mr Trump.  Meanwhile Democrats kept a low profile on Monday, attempting to come to terms with the new political landscape that had emerged in Washington DC after Sunday’s news.  Mr Mueller’s top-line findings from a probe that had lasted 22 months came in the form of a four-page memo from William Barr, the attorney general, and amounted to a major political victory for the president.  The Democrats are demanding the full Mueller report be made public and its underlying documents be handed to Congress.  They are also vowing to continue investigations they started after taking back control of the House of Representatives in January, something will be harder to justify now.  Speaking alongside Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, Mr Trump both lashed out at those who pushed the collusion claims and expressed relief Mr Mueller’s probe was over.  Profile | Robert Mueller “I love this country as much as I can love anything – my family, my country, my god. But what they did, it was a false narrative, it was a terrible thing,” Mr Trump said.  He added: “Very few people I know could have handled it. We can never, ever let this happen to another president again.” The president also said: "There are a lot of people out there that have done some very very evil things, very bad things, I would say treasonous things against our country … [and] those people will certainly be looked at". Mr Mueller’s confidential report was in two parts – the first looked at Russian election meddling in 2016 and the second looked at claims Mr Trump obstructed justice by impeding that investigation.  Mr Mueller concluded the Kremlin did intervene to tip the election for Mr Trump, both pumping disinformation at Americans over social media and hacking Democratic Party emails and orchestrating their release.  US attorney general William Barr's letter to congressional leaders on Robert Mueller's report Credit: REUTERS/Jim Bourg But, crucially, Mr Mueller was categorical in his conclusion that neither Mr Trump nor his campaign aides conspired with the Kremlin during the campaign.  On the second issue, Mr Mueller was less definitive. He said he chosen not to make a decision on whether Mr Trump had obstructed justice, handing the decision on to the Justice Department instead. “While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him",” Mr Mueller noted, according to Mr Barr’s summary – in contrast to Mr Trump’s claim of “complete exoneration”.  It was Mr Barr and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, who decided Mr Trump had not obstructed justice – a decision that Democrats have questioned given both were appointed by the president and reached the judgment just 48 hours after seeing Mr Mueller’s report.  Mr Barr is facing calls to appear before congressmen to explain his thinking. He has also pledged to reveal parts of Mr Mueller’s original report, which remains unpublished, though no timetable for that has been announced. Ms Sanders said :  “I think Democrats and the liberal media owe the president and they owe the American people an apology. “They wasted two years and created a massive disruption and distraction from things that impact everyone’s day to day life.”

  • May Faces Endgame as U.K. Leader Is Losing Control of Brexit

    Golocal247.com news

    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.

  • Prince Charles unveils Shakespeare statue, banters with Cubans

    Golocal247.com news

    The heir to the British throne, who is a keen conservationist, and his wife, Camilla, were guided on their city tour by Eusebio Leal, an historian who oversaw a facelift of the Cuban capital's historic center. With Charles sporting sunglasses and Camilla holding a dainty cream parasol under fierce Caribbean sun, the royal couple stopped to banter with tourists and Cubans on their walk. The three-day trip aims to strengthen British-Cuban ties as part of a broader normalization of the island's relations with the West, even though the Trump administration has sought to unravel a detente between Cuba and the United States.

  • How much did the Mueller report cost?

    Golocal247.com news

    Robert Mueller has concluded his 22-month investigation, and while the special counsel’s full report remains under wraps, some elements of the probe are known to the public – including its cost. From the day the special counsel was appointed, his office has released statements of expenditures every few months detailing its spendings. Based on the published statements, plus an estimate of what is to come in the fourth statement, it appears likely that the Mueller investigation itself will have cost around $17m.

  • Trump Officially Recognizes Golan Heights as Israeli Territory

    Golocal247.com news

    President Trump on Monday signed an order recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, abruptly shifting long-standing U.S. policy on the matter."We're celebrating the Golan Heights. It's something that I've been hearing about for many years," Trump said during remarks to reporters at the White House alongside Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "This should have been done, I would say, numerous presidents ago, but for some reason they didn't do it, and I'm very honored to have done it."Israel has held the Golan for 52 years since capturing it from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. About 20,000 Israelis and 20,000 Syrians live in the territory, whose 1981 annexation by Israel was not recognized internationally. The disputed land remains a fraught issue in Middle East politics; Syria attacked Trump's decision as "a blatant attack on its sovereignty" and threatened to recapture the region "through all available means."Trump's move is a political boon for Netanyahu, coming two weeks before hotly contested national elections on April 9. The prime minister, damaged by corruption charges and facing a stiff challenge from the centrist former IDF general Benny Gantz, has for months has called on the U.S. to recognize the territory as part of Israel."Your proclamation comes at a time when Golan is more important than ever for our security," the prime minister said. "Israel won the Golan Heights in a just war of self-defense and the Jewish people's roots in the Golan go back thousands of years."Trump similarly recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in 2017, calling it “a long overdue step to advance the peace process.”

    The Arab League said Sunday it was not planning to discuss reinstating Syria's membership at a summit later this month, more than eight years after suspending it as the country descended into war. The pan-Arab bloc, which is set to hold its annual summit in Tunisia on March 31, froze Syria's membership in November 2011 over a bloody government crackdown on protestors. "The issue of Syria's return to the Arab League has yet to be listed on the agenda and has not been formally proposed," said the League's spokesman Mahmoud Afifi.

  • Apple News+ is a $9.99 subscription service for magazines and newspapers

    Golocal247.com news

    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.

  • Democrats push for Mueller report to Congress by next week, Republicans resist

    As the Senate Judiciary Committee's Republican chairman called for an investigation into the origins of the probe of any Trump campaign links with Russians, the Senate leader blocked a second attempt by Democrats to pass a measure aimed at pushing the Justice Department into full disclosure of the report. Six committee chairs in the Democratic-led House of Representatives called on U.S. Attorney General William Barr, in a letter seen by Reuters, to release the full Mueller report to Congress by April 2. Barr on Sunday released a four-page summary of conclusions of the investigation that detailed Russian interference but cleared the Republican president's campaign team of conspiring with Moscow.
