Twitter shuts Chinese accounts targeting Hong Kong protests

Twitter shuts down 200,000 Chinese accountsTwitter said it has suspended more than 200,000 accounts that it believes were part of a Chinese government influence campaign targeting the protest movement in Hong Kong.

The company also said Monday it will ban ads from state-backed media companies, expanding a prohibition it first applied in 2017 to two Russian entities.

Both measures are part of what a senior company official portrayed in an interview as a broader effort to curb malicious political activity on a popular platform that has been criticized for enabling election interference around the world and for accepting money for ads that amount to propaganda by state-run media organizations.

Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte says he'll resign, attacks Salvini as 'irresponsible'

Italy PM resigns)Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told the Italian Senate that he would resign as he launched a scathing attack on right-wing Interior Minister Matteo Salvini who was sat beside him in the chamber on Tuesday.

In an hour-long speech, Conte said Salvini's demand for fresh elections -- 18 months after the last ones were held -- was "irresponsible" and accused him of putting the national interest at risk in order to advance his own personal interests.
"With a political crisis in mid-August, elections will probably be held in autumn and then this would mean a provisional government and will make us weak with our EU partners," Conte said.

Russia and China say US missile test could revive arms race

Tomahawk cruise missile tested by USChina and Russia have accused the United States of stoking a new arms race by testing a cruise missile, just weeks after Washington withdrew from a cold-war era missile control treaty that would have barred the test launch.

The ground-launched missile, a conventionally-configured version of the nuclear-capable Tomahawk cruise missile, hit its target after over 500 kilometres of flight during Monday’s test, the Pentagon said in a statement.

Ground-launched versions of the missile had been removed from service decades ago, after the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty was signed by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987.

Russian nuclear monitors silencedFour Russian radiation monitoring stations went offline following reports of a nuclear accident in Arkhangelsk region on Russia’s northern frontier, fuelling concerns of a cover-up.

The Russian government has been vague and at times contradictory when addressing the mysterious explosion near a military test range on August 8.

At least five nuclear scientists died, and a brief radiation spike was detected over nearby Severodvinsk.

According to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), which operates an international network of radiation monitoring stations, two key Russian stations went offline two days after the unexplained explosion and reports of radiation spikes.

Planned Parenthood Withdraws From Title X Program Over Trump Abortion Rule

Planned prenthood withdaws from Title X

Planned Parenthood is leaving the federal Title X family planning program rather than comply with new Trump administration rules regarding abortion counseling.

The new rules, issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services earlier this year, prohibit Title X grantees from providing or referring patients for abortion, except in cases of rape, incest or medical emergency.

"The Trump administration has forced Planned Parenthood grantees out of Title X," said Alexis McGill Johnson, Planned Parenthood's acting president, in a conference call Monday. "The impact of the Trump administration's gag rule will reverberate across the country."

TVNL Comment: Planned Prenthood will lose tens of millions in federal funding rather than be bullied by the misogynistic Trump administration.  Wake up, America. This is not about abortion.  It's about merely mentioning abortion services .

Union Workers at Trump Speech Had to Be There If They Wanted All Their Pay for the Week

Shell workers had to attend speech or lose pay

Union workers at a multibillion-dollar Pennsylvania construction site did not have to stick around to hear President Donald Trump speak last Tuesday. But if they opted out, they were forced to take the day off — and lose some pay.

Trump was on hand at the Royal Dutch Shell petrochemical plant in Beaver County where he addressed a large group of workers in a speech that, while billed as being energy-focused, also railed against opponents such as former President Barack Obama and Sen. Elizabeth Warren and lamented what he described as the “millions” the presidency was costing him.

Prior to Trump’s visit, employees were told that, in effect, attendance at his speech was not mandatory, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. But there would be a cost: Workers would not be paid their overtime rate unless they scanned in their IDs at 7 a.m. and stood through lunch.

These Deported Vets Say Rescuing Migrants Is Their Duty

Deported vets help migrantsLocated just 40 yards from the San Ysidro border crossing where each day the United States deports hundreds of undocumented people, the Unified United States Deported Veterans Resource Center has become a critical life-line to scores of military veterans who have found themselves unceremoniously ejected from the country they once served.

Every afternoon for the last two years, the Center’s founder Hector Lopez and co-director Robert Vivar man the aging desk in the center’s cramped office on José María Larroque, where they help both newly deported veterans and the hundreds of vets who now live in and around Tijuana. There’s plenty of work to do for a much larger staff, let alone the skeleton crew of volunteers who work here.
