  • Trump lawyer Giuliani says Mueller report 'better than I expected'

    Golocal247.com news

    President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report into Russian interference in the 2016 election, whether the Trump campaign colluded, and whether Trump obstructed justice was more positive than he had anticipated, based on the summary of the report released on Sunday. "It's better than I expected," said Giuliani, who, echoing Trump, relentlessly attacked Mueller and his work when he began to represent the president last year. Mueller's report, according to the summary by U.S. Attorney General William Barr, found no evidence President Donald Trump's campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 election.

An AFP reporter saw dozens of people -- mostly men -- file out of the battered jihadist encampment in the remote village of Baghouz to board pickup trucks.

    Golocal247.com news

    As of February of this year, Google's Chrome desktop web browser owned a remarkable 65% of the global browser market, according to market research firm NetApplications.

  • Israel returns fire on Gaza as Trump signs historic decree recognising its sovereignty over Golan Heights

    Golocal247.com news

    Israel launched strikes on Hamas targets in Gaza on Monday hours after a rocket from the Palestinian enclave hit a house near Tel Aviv and wounded seven people, leading to fears of a severe escalation. The retaliatory strikes began around the same time as Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, held a joint press conference with US President Donald Trump in Washington. Mr Netanyahu addressed the attack during the White House press conference, saying: "Israel will not tolerate this. I will not tolerate this. And as we speak ... Israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression." The on-camera appearance ended with Mr Trump signing a decree formally recognising Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a territory which Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war. The move, which formalises a commitment Mr Trump made last week, appeared to give Mr Netanyahu a boost ahead of the closely contested April 9 Israeli elections. The two leaders show off a proclamation recognising Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights Credit: Reuters Condemning the attack from Gaza, Mr Trump said Israel has the "absolute right" to defend itself. "Today, aggressive action by Iran and terrorist groups in southern Syria, including Hezbollah, continue to make the Golan Heights a potential launching ground for attacks against Israel - very violent attacks," Mr Trump said. "This should have been done numerous presidents ago". Speaking from the White House, the Israeli leader told Mr Trump "Israel has never had a better friend than you".  Mr Netanyahu said he would cut short his US visit and return home after his meeting with Mr Trump to deal with the aftermath of the Tel Aviv attack. The flare-up comes at a highly sensitive time for Israel, which holds elections on April 9. The attack on Gaza has so far involved at least six strikes, including five in and around Gaza City and one in southern Gaza between Rafah and Khan Yunis, according to an Israeli security source. There are no reports so far of any casualties in Gaza. A police officer inspects the damage to a house hit by a rocket in Mishmeret, central Israel Credit: AP Earlier on Monday, a rocket from Gaza hit a house in Mishmeret, around 12 miles north of Tel Aviv, in a rare long-distance strike. Seven Israelis were injured lightly by burns and shrapnel in the attack, including a six-month-old child. Six of them were members of the same British-Israeli family. Rocket fire from Gaza at that distance is rare, the rocket would have had to travel some 75 miles. Israel's army said the rocket was fired by Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip, from the Rafah area. A Hamas official has denied the group was behind the rocket, evoking the possibility it was caused by "bad weather". But Israel warned of a firm response and announced it was sending two additional brigades to reinforce the Gaza area and carrying out a limited call up of reservists. Israel's military said in a statement it "has begun striking Hamas terror targets throughout the Gaza Strip."

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • UPDATE 1-Democrat Gillibrand calls Trump 'coward' as she launches 2020 bid outside his NY hotel

    Democratic U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand delivered a fiery repudiation of U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday at the doorstep of one of his most famous properties, making it clear she will not pull her punches in seeking to replace him. "President Trump is tearing apart the moral fabric of this country," Gillibrand declared to hundreds of supporters, with Trump International Hotel and Tower - which she called a "shrine to greed, division and vanity" - as a backdrop in midtown Manhattan. The speech, the first since Gillibrand formally launched her 2020 campaign last week, and its location were intended to show voters that she will attack Trump directly, in contrast to some Democratic rivals who have hesitated to focus on the Republican president early in the 2020 campaign.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said providing Congress with anything less would be equivalent to a “cover-up” and subvert the legislative branch of the government from holding the president accountable, a fight the party is willing to take to the nation’s highest court. “Once you say that a president can not be indictable no matter the evidence as a matter of law, to then follow the principle that you can’t then comment on the evidence or publicize it is to convert that into a cover-up,” Nadler told “Fox News Sunday,” one of three television appearances for the morning. “If that is the case, and they can’t hold him accountable, the only institution that can hold a president accountable is Congress, and Congress, therefore, needs the evidence and the information,” he said.

  • The 5 most important announcements from Apple’s big event

    Golocal247.com news

    For Apple fans, today's big "It's Show Time" event wasn't exactly the most hotly anticipated Apple press conference in recent history. In fact, it might not even crack the top 10. But for Apple, today's event carries a tremendous amount of weight. For the past decade, Apple has made the lion's share of its money selling hardware products. Specifically, the iPhone line and its sky-high profit margins are the reason Apple is the most profitable consumer electronics company in history. But as we've seen in recent years, iPhone growth simply isn't sustainable — big smartphone markets are already saturated and people are keeping their phones longer than ever because it's so expensive to upgrade these days. That's a big part of the reason that Apple is turning to services as the company explores new ways to foster growth. Today we got our first look at the new services Apple hopes will carry the company's media efforts into the future. We can't say anything Apple announced during Monday's press conference came as much of a surprise considering all of the leaks and reports from the past few weeks. That said, we finally know all of the particulars regarding Apple's upcoming new streaming entertainment and news services, and there's plenty to unpack. In this post, however, we'll unpack it all as we cover the five most important announcements from the Steve Jobs theater in Cupertino, California on Monday. Apple News+Apple on Monday announced a huge revamp to the Apple News product. What was once merely a news aggregator app is now evolving into a one-stop shop for all sorts of journalism called Apple News+. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im5c5WR9vMQ First, Apple is adding magazines and digital subscriptions to Apple News. Time, Vogue, People, National Geographic, Popular Science, Billboard, The New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, Fortune, and New York Magazine are just some of the popular magazines that will be featured in the new Apple News+ hub. New issues of subscribed magazines and newspapers are downloaded automatically in the background, and more than 300 magazines will be included in the service at launch, as well as newspapers like The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times. Apple News+ costs $9.99 per month, which includes unlimited content sources and family sharing. The new service is available beginning immediately. Apple CardApple's second big announcement during today's show is a brand new service called Apple Card, which is backed by Goldman Sachs and Mastercard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAZiE9NtRfs The company says it has completely rethought the credit card with its new Apple Card product. It's a credit card, but you can sign up in the Wallet app on your iPhone and get your card virtually right away. Balance information and payment details are all accessible in the Wallet app, and Apple even provides Apple Card customer support through the Messages app. Apple Card uses machine learning and Apple Maps to translate conventional vendor transaction details to actual business names that are more recognizable. There are a number of tools included as well that are aimed at helping users track their spending. As for rewards, Apple has introduced a new "Daily Cash" feature that gives users cash back on a daily basis. Money is added to an Apple Cash card in the wallet app automatically, and the cash back rate is 2% for all purchases except for purchases made from Apple, which earn 3% cash back. Apple Card in the Wallet app offers several tools designed to reduce the amount of interest you pay, such as a real cost calculator and multiple payments per month. There are also no fees with the Apple Card, including no late fees and no over limit fees. Each Apple Card customer will also get a physical titanium card for locations where Apple Pay isn't accepted. Purchases made with the physical card only get 1% cash back. The Apple Card will launch in the US sometime this summer. Apple ArcadeRumors suggested Apple would be announcing a new gaming service during its event on Monday, and indeed it did. The new service is called Apple Arcade, and it's a new way to deliver video games to users. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95FuVib8mcY Apple Arcade offers financial backing to studios for the development of games that will be exclusive to Apple Arcade, and they'll be playable on mobile devices, computers, and on Apple TV. Apple Arcade subscriptions offer unlimited access to all games in the library, and it will launch with more than 100 titles available from day one. A new Arcade tab in the App Store will provide access to Apple Arcade, and all games will work on iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers, as well as on the Apple TV. No games will be permitted to display any ads, and no games will be allowed to include in-app purchases. Apple Arcade will launch in more than 150 countries this fall, and pricing for the subscription hasn't yet been announced. Apple TV ChannelsThe biggest news from today's press conference is a new a la carte TV subscription service that lets you pay only for the channels you want to watch. Apple TV Channels will live inside the Apple TV app, and users only pay for the channels to which they would like to subscribe. All content is also available on demand, of course, and the redesigned Apple TV app will also be home to streaming TV services from cable providers and similar offerings like PlayStation Vue. The redesigned Apple TV app will also provide live scores from sporting events, and it'll be a portal for movies and TV shows you purchase in iTunes. A unified "Up Next" section in the app shows new episodes of all your favorite TV shows as they become available, to ensure you never miss a show. Hulu and Prime Video content is also available through the new Apple TV app. It's designed as a one-stop shop for all of the streaming entertainment you watch. The new Apple TV app will available on Apple TV boxes, iPad, and iPhone beginning in May, and it'll come as part of an iOS update. It'll also be made available on macOS beginning this fall, and there will be a version made available for smart TVs (including Samsung, Sony, and Vizio), Roku devices, and Fire TV devices. Apple TV+In addition to the new Apple TV Channels product, Apple finally announced its original programming initiative. Dubbed Apple TV+, Apple is dumping some serious cash into original shows and movies created by and starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Brie Larson, Bill Murray, Steven Spielberg, J. J. Abrams, Octavia Spencer, Steve Carell, M. Night Shyamalan, Jennifer Aniston, Ron Howard, and Reese Witherspoon are just some of the big names involved with projects that are currently in production. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrdbT4hpwBk Steven Spielberg will be rebooting Amazing Stories for Apple TV+, an anthology series from the mid 1980s. Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon will star in The Morning Show, a show that analyzes the inner workings of a fictitious morning new show. Jason Momoa will star in a new show called See, a show about a world where only a few million survivors lived through a cataclysmic event, and they were all blind. Kumail Nanjiani is making a series called Little America, a collection of immigrant stories in the United States based on true events. J. J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles are joining to create a series called Romantic Voice, a show about a young woman trying to  make it in the New York music scene. There's also a new preschool show about using coding (yes, coding!) to solve problems. It's called Helpsters and it features characters from Sesame Street. There's also one more personality you may have heard of who's on board to create two documentaries and a new Book Club interview series for Apple TV+: Oprah. Apple TV+ will be available in the new Apple TV app beginning this fall. It will be an ad-free subscription service, but pricing hasn't yet been announced.
