US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin on Sunday said they were open to restarting COVID-19 aid talks, after weeks of failed negotiations prompted US President Donald Trump to take executive actions that Democrats argued would do little to ease Americans’ financial distress. Discussions over a fifth bill to address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic fell apart on Friday. Trump on Saturday sought to take matters into his own hands, signing executive orders and memorandums aimed at unemployment benefits, evictions, student loans and payroll taxes. On Sunday, Pelosi and Mnuchin appeared willing to consider.

If your idea of the purr-fect day is spending it curled up with convalescent rescue cats and a coffee, then one cafe in Vietnam has you covered. Ngao’s Home Cafe in Hanoi is a loving home for 15 felines, many of whom were abandoned or found injured after being bitten by dogs or suffering serious accidents. "I try to help cats with difficult backgrounds, to heal their physical and mental wounds," said 24-year-old cafe owner Nguyen Thanh Binh ahead of International Cat Day on Saturday. The cafe has clawed its way up the favorite list of many cat lovers since it opened last.

Back in the 1950s, the lifeguards of Bondi Beach, Sydney, were not only charged with rescuing surfers and scanning for sharks. In their role as “beach inspectors” they were also responsible for ensuring that swimsuits conformed to New South Wales state regulations. At least 7.6cm of fabric was required over the thigh, no navels were to be exposed and shoulder straps had to be “sturdy.”One of the best-known beach inspectors was Aubrey Laidlaw, who had already laid down the law when the first bikini debuted on the beach in 1946. By the turn of the 1960s, the “Bikini Wars” were.

Kiribati will raise its islands above the ocean as part of its fight against sea-level rise, seeking help from its new diplomatic partner China to secure the archipelagic nation’s future, the country’s newly re-elected president has said. In his first in-depth interview since his resounding election win in June, Kiribati President Taneti Maamau told the Guardian that international cooperation would be on Kiribati’s terms. He said he would not accept large loans "from any country," and would not allow China to build a base on Kiribati’s strategically significant Christmas Island. Maamau said his government’s strategy "identifies raising our islands" as a counter to.

ISRAEL. Firm creates pricey mask. A jewelry company is working on what it says will be the world’s most expensive COVID-19 mask, a gold, diamond-encrusted face covering with a price tag of US$1.5 million. The 18-karat white gold mask is to be decorated with 3,600 white and black diamonds and fitted with top-rated N99 filters, designer and company owner Isaac Levy said. The buyer had two demands: That the mask be completed by the end of the year and that it be the priciest in the world, he said. Levy declined to identify the buyer, except to say that he was a.

A: Did your dad enjoy the balloon festival? B: He loved it, although I was initially a little worried, because he doesn’t have a head for heights. A: Wow, he’s so brave to have gone for a ride in a hot air balloon. I have a fear of heights, too. B: He’s actually only on the lower end of the spectrum: he doesn’t suffer from acrophobia or vertigo: he just feels a little anxious. Also, it was a tethered balloon, so that provided an extra feeling of security. A: Even so, I don’t think I could stomach a balloon.

Canberra residents remain trapped on the Victorian border after the New South Wales (NSW) government "reneged" on an agreement to allow them to pass through southern parts of the state to return home, and despite offers to dispatch Australian Capital Territory (ACT) police to escort them back. ACT residents have now been on the Victoria-NSW border for four days, still without any clear indication of when, or if, they would be allowed to pass through southern NSW to return home. The residents were initially granted permits by the ACT and NSW governments to transit through the state to get to Canberra on.

A man in his 50s from Kaohsiung got hit in the right eye several days ago during a badminton game while attempting a smash stroke on the shuttlecock. His eye was so painful he could not open it, and when he went to the hospital to get it checked out, he discovered that there was bleeding in the vitreous humor of the eye, which had sustained a traumatic cataract, reducing his vision to only 0.01. He could only make out the vague impression of fingers being waved in front of his eye, and it was only after emergency vitreomacular micro-incision.

Two major Chinese banks are assessing what needs to be done based on their risk tolerance and compliance requirements, people party.

Binder opened his MotoGP account at the main expense of Italian Franco Morbidelli, who came in second on Yamaha’s satellite SRT bike, and Frenchman Johan Zarco on a Ducati-Avintia, who came third. “My team put an absolutely insane.

The absence of fans did not cause players to doubt themselves, but did make referees think twice, a study of behind-closed-doors soccer has found. Playing matches without supporters had a minimal effect on the phenomenon of home advantage, but it did correspond with officials showing fewer yellow cards to away teams, researchers from Reading University found. In a paper on the effects of behind-closed-doors matches, researchers studied 6,481 games from before and after COVID-19 lockdowns. In the Premier League and EFL Championship, games played in empty stadiums saw the proportion of home victories drop from 43.4 percent before the pandemic to 42.

They stand as eyesores to most passers-by and potential public health risks to authorities, decaying buildings wrapped in tangles of exposed wire, studded with protruding leaky plastic pipes, vegetation billowing from cracks and terraces where particulates from polluted air have accumulated over time. With skyscrapers and ultramodern developments on every side, some of these "nail houses" are also sitting on land worth millions of dollars in Shenzhen’s inferno of a property market, where new-unit and second-hand home prices rival London. In battles over land and development, the nail house phenomenon has become widespread throughout China over the past two decades, with owners.

Energy giant Saudi Arabian Oil Co (Aramco) on Sunday said that its second-quarter profits plunged a massive 73 percent due to sharply lower oil prices as the COVID-19 pandemic undercuts global demand. The behemoth posted a net profit of US$6.6 billion for the three months to June 30 compared with US$24.7 billion for the same period of last year. The results are in line with analysts’ expectations, but stand in contrast to the losses reported by its rival energy giants, which are reeling from a drop in oil demand since the start of the pandemic. "Strong headwinds from reduced demand and lower.

Former president Lee Teng-hui (李登輝), who died on Thursday last week, coined the phrase “new Taiwanese” and used it in some of his public speeches. The concept of “new Taiwanese” was an important link in the chain of his political thought. Lee proposed the term in August 1998 on the eve of the anniversary of the end of the Pacific War. His intention was to consolidate a common understanding around the idea of “new Taiwanese,” and to embody the Taiwanese spirit of never giving up and not fearing hardship, and to create bright prospects for generations to come. However, after.

Chinese automaker Zhejiang Geely Holding Group (吉利控股集團) plans to use a platform developed with input from Volvo Cars Corp to build new models in Malaysia for its partly owned Proton brand, a strategy that shows how it aims to accelerate its push to become China’s first global auto giant. The yet-to-be-finalized plans for Proton are just one strand of a Geely project to revamp factories at home and abroad using joint platforms it has been perfecting with Volvo since 2013. Geely in 2010 bought the Swedish brand for US$1.8 billion — a deal that raised its international profile and sent shockwaves.

Long-awaited peace negotiations between the Afghan government and the Taliban are expected to start in Qatar within a week, once the final batch of Taliban prisoners are released, the US special envoy and Afghan government sources said yesterday. The government accepted the advice of a loya jirga , a grand assembly of elders, on Sunday to release 400 "hard-core" Taliban prisoners, paving the way for talks aimed at ending a war that has ground on since US-backed Afghan forces ousted a Taliban government in late 2001. A government source said that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani would likely sign the decree to release the.

Overworking teachers. As part of the 12-Year Basic Education Curriculum Guidelines that started last summer, every senior-high school is required to increase available elective courses by more than 20 percent. However, many schools are unable to employ more full-time teachers due to the government’s strict faculty quota. As a result, schools can only relax restrictions on overtime hours to solve the personnel shortage. As teachers’ hours greatly increase, overwork has become increasingly common. In particular, teachers who work in remote schools need to teach as much as 10 additional hours per week, and they have no time to prepare for classes, which means.

Six current and former legislators from three political parties, including former New Power Party chairman Hsu Yung-ming (徐永明), have been accused of taking bribes. President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) did not mince her words about the scandal, as she warned Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) members who might yearn for power and wealth that they should leave the party. The reason that lawmakers across party lines take bribes can be found in a fundamental problem with the political campaign system. Without thorough reform, it would keep happening. The problem with campaigns is their huge cost. Take the six lawmakers for example: They spent between.
