The Trump 'virus' spreads to Canada

Trump wannabe to govern Ontario

Before Donald Trump, there were the brothers Ford.

In many ways, Doug and the late Rob Ford, the travesty twins of Canadian politics, presaged Trump's pestilential presidency albeit on a much less consequential, but still instructive scale.

It's instructive because the success and stubborn popularity of the brothers Ford are a frank rebuttal to anyone, anywhere, who envisions Canada, and more particularly, Canadians, as enlightened antidotes to Trump's seething malevolence.

Russian Hackers Attacking U.S. Power Grid and Aviation, FBI Warns

Russian hackersRussian hackers are conducting a broad assault on the U.S. electric grid, water processing plants, air transportation facilities and other targets in rolling attacks on some of the country’s most sensitive infrastructure, U.S. government officials said Thursday.

The announcement was the first official confirmation that Russian hackers have taken aim at facilities on which hundreds of millions of Americans depend for basic services. Bloomberg News reported in July that Russian hackers had breached more than a dozen power plants in seven states, an aggressive campaign that has since expanded to dozens of states, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

Britain to Expel Russian Diplomats in Wake of Spy Poisoning

Britain to Expel Russian DiplomatTwenty-three Russian diplomats will be expelled from the U.K. after Russia failed to meet a midnight deadline to disclose details of the nerve agent that is suspected to have been used to poison a former spy on British soil.

Speaking in the British Parliament on Wednesday, Prime Minister Theresa May said Russia offered “complete disdain” for the request and treated it with “sarcasm, contempt, and defiance.” May said she now considers the attempted murders as an “unlawful use of force” against Britain from the Russian state, and said 23 diplomats—whom Britain has identified as “undeclared intelligence officers”—must now leave the U.K. within a week.

French fashion designer Givenchy dies at 91

Hubert de Givenchy dies at 91

Audrey Hepburn glides through the credits of the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s in a black dress that is in no way little. It’s a long, narrow sheath, though she can still amble down Fifth Avenue unimpeded. The dress is sleeveless – yet gloves cover her arms far above her elbows – and collarless, with a striking back strap revealing her shoulder blades. Several generations have worshipped images of Hepburn in that dress as defining sophistication.

This was the work of Hubert de Givenchy, who has died aged 91. His clothes for Hepburn made her feel secure. “I put them on and I feel protected,” she said. He helped her to downplay the trampiness of Holly Golightly, who trips into Sing Sing prison in Givenchy’s lampshade hat, and shops at Tiffany’s in his tailored coat. No wonder Jacqueline Kennedy commanded Givenchy to outfit her state visit to Paris that year.

Teresa may: Russia behind poisonings

Former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned by a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia, Theresa May has told MPs.

The Foreign Office summoned Russia's ambassador to provide an explanation.

Mrs May said if there is no "credible response" by the end of Tuesday, the UK would conclude there has been an "unlawful use of force" by Moscow.
