The US government on Tuesday filed a blockbuster lawsuit accusing Google of maintaining an "illegal monopoly" in online search and advertising in the country’s biggest antitrust case in decades — opening the door to a potential breakup of the Silicon Valley titan. The politically charged case, which could take years to play out, draws new battle lines between the US government and big tech with potentially major implications for the sector. US Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said that the case filed with Republican state attorneys general from 11 states takes aim at Google’s dominance of the online ecosystem. "Google is the gateway.

Tundu Lissu, shot 16 times in an assassination attempt, has returned to Tanzania to run for president — but he did not know what to expect after the "hell" experienced by the opposition under Tanzanian President John Magufuli. Political rallies had been banned for years, freedom of speech suffocated, and opposition leaders killed, abducted and arrested — Lissu was worried for his own safety. However, the 52-year-old has been amazed by his compatriots’ reaction as he crisscrosses the country to crowds clamoring to see him. "After five years of repression, I was not expecting this kind of enthusiasm and mass support from the.

A NASA spacecraft on Tuesday touched down on the rugged surface of the Bennu asteroid, grabbing a sample of rocks dating back to the birth of our solar system to bring home. The minivan-sized OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, built by Lockheed Martin, extended its 3.35m robotic arm toward a flat patch of gravel near Bennu’s north pole and plucked the sample of rocks, the space agency’s first handful of pristine asteroid rocks. "Sample collection is complete, and the back-away burn has executed," Lockheed mission operator Estelle Church said seconds later, confirming that the spacecraft eased away from the space rock after making contact. The probe.

It is no secret that thousands of laboratories around the world use cells derived from a fetus that was aborted decades ago to develop vital medicines. However, it is a contentious topic in the US, where conservatives and anti-abortion advocates have long deemed the practice unethical. The matter is once more under the spotlight after US President Donald Trump was treated for COVID-19 using Regeneron’s antibody treatment. The company used aborted fetal cells as part of its testing process. "It’s becoming annoying," Andrea Gambotto, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh, said of the controversy. Gambotto has used a cell line called HEK 293,

JAPAN. Deer-edible bags invented. The deer that roam Nara no longer face discomfort — or far worse — after local firms developed a safe alternative to the plastic packaging discarded by tourists that often ended up in the animals’ stomachs. Last year, several of the 1,300 deer that wander around the ancient capital’s central park were found dead after swallowing plastic bags and food wrappers. Firms collaborated to develop bags that pass safely through the animals’ complex digestive system. The bags are made with recycled pulp from milk cartons and rice bran, one of the main ingredients of the shika senbei savory.

Soldiers on Tuesday opened fire on people protesting against police brutality in the Lekki district of Lagos, Nigeria, and at least two demonstrators were shot, four witnesses said. Thousands of Nigerians have demonstrated nationwide every day for nearly two weeks against a police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, that rights groups had for years accused of extortion, harassment, torture and murders. The unit was disbanded on Oct. 11, but the protests have persisted, with demonstrators calling for a raft of law enforcement reforms. "They started firing ammunition toward the crowd.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s minority Liberal government on Monday said that an opposition push for an anti-corruption committee would trigger a vote that could force a fall election in Canada. Liberal House of Commons leader Pablo Rodriguez said the government considers the Conservative motion to be a matter of confidence. Trudeau’s Liberal Party won re-election last year, but does not have the majority of seats in parliament and must rely on at least one opposition party to remain in power. Trudeau said he does not want an election, and that his government is focused on the health and economic crisis during.

Sudan on Tuesday hailed US plans to remove it from its state sponsors of terrorism blacklist, saying that the move would facilitate debt relief and pave the way to economic recovery. Sudan is one of four nations branded by the US as a state sponsor of terrorism — along with Iran, North Korea and Syria. The designation has severely impeded economic development in the nation, with few major foreign investors willing to run afoul of US laws. "This decision qualifies Sudan for debt relief," Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said in a speech broadcast by state television.

A: How are your legs? Not too tired? This is the final stretch. We’re almost at the top. B: So do we need to walk up that path? I think I’ll be fine: it looks like a gentle ascent, and there are steps all the way. A: Appearances can be deceptive. The path gets quite steep further on, and the steps become broken and irregular. We’re not out of the woods yet. B: What does that signpost say? If we take the right fork we will get to a temple in 25 minutes. A: Nice try. We’re going.

The prognosis for biodiversity on Earth is grim. According to a sobering report released by the UN last year, 1 million land and marine species across the globe are threatened with extinction — more than at any other period in human history. According to a recent study, about 20 percent of the countries in the world risk ecosystem collapse due to the destruction of wildlife and their habitats, a result of human activity in tandem with a warming climate. The US is the ninth most at risk. Despite this desperate outlook, the Trump administration, as part of its aggressive rollback of regulations designed.

Asia’s biggest annual film festival started in South Korea yesterday at a fraction of its usual scale, but some movie fans will still be able to attend screenings despite COVID-19 forcing many events online. The Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) usually sees a host of stars and industry players from Asia and elsewhere descend on the port city for 10 days of critical consideration and financial dealmaking. However, strict conditions imposed this year because of the pandemic means no opening ceremony, red-carpet parades, after-parties or outdoor fan events. The fact it is taking place at all is a bonus, as many international festivals.
