Der linke kolumbianische Präsident Gustavo Petro hat sich mit Sprechern des Wikileaks-Projekts im Präsidentenpalast Casa de Nariño getroffen. Das Treffen mit dem Chefredakteur der Enthüllungsplattform, Kristinn Hrafnsson, und dem Wikileaks-Botschafter, Joseph Farrell, dauerte etwa eine Stunde. Laut Hrafnsson hat sich der Staatschef bereit erklärt, für den Gründer von Wikileaks, Julian Assange, bei der Regierung von Joe Biden einzutreten.
While the pro-Netanyahu bloc is slated to expand to 65 seats in the Knesset following yesterday’s election, Channel 12 reports that it only received 8,189 more votes than the anti-Netanyahu bloc. However, because Arab Balad party and possibly Zionist Meretz failed to cross the threshold, their votes were scattered to other parties rather than being redistributed to the anti-Netanyahu bloc, which is slated to end with just 55 seats in the Knesset. Both blocs won roughly 50% of the vote, though the final tallies are not yet available.
„Der Bezirk hat die Entscheidung getroffen, alle Aktivitäten der für den Schulbezirk Uvalde zuständigen Polizei für eine gewisse Zeit auszusetzen.

“Our children have been taken from us. We will not stop fighting until we have answers and we ensure the safety of the children in our community is the top priority,” said a statement from representatives for families of district students.
Hadash-Ta’al commented on the Central Election Commission’s decision to disqualify Balad’s candidacy for the 25th Knesset. “The decision to disqualify Balad is an unfortunate decision. [Benny] Gantz, [Yair] Lapid and [Meirav] Michaeli proved that they are right-wing in disguise. Despite the anger of the racists who want to keep the Arabs away from the polling stations, on election day we all flock to the polling stations.”
Wie ist es soweit gekommen?
Die Europäische Kommission hat 2020 ein Gesetz auf den Weg gebracht, das es erlaubt, alle privaten Chats, Nachrichten und E-Mails verdachtslos und flächendeckend auf verbotene Darstellungen Minderjähriger und Anbahnungsversuche (Kontaktaufnahme zu Minderjährigen) zu durchsuchen. Das heißt: Facebook Messenger, Gmail & Co dürfen jede Kommunikation auf verdächtiges Text- und Bildmaterial scannen. Und zwar vollautomatisiert, durch den Einsatz von sog. ‘Künstlicher Intelligenz’ – ohne, dass ein Verdacht vorliegen muss. Meldet ein Algorithmus einen Verdachtsfall, werden alle Nachrichteninhalte und Kontaktdaten automatisch und ohne menschliche Prüfung an eine private Verteilstelle und weiter an Polizeibehörden weltweit geleitet. Die Betroffenen sollen nie davon erfahren.
Einige US-Dienste wie GMail und Outlook.com praktizieren diese automatische Nachrichten- und Chatkontrolle bereits. Verschlüsselte Nachrichten sind zurzeit noch ausgenommen.
Die EU-Kommission will mit einem zweiten Gesetz nun alle Anbieter zum Einsatz dieser Technologie verpflichten.

Corruption has become a strategic threat to Israeli society and democracy. It places political both personal and economic interests ahead of the needs of the public. It is also reducing the public’s confidence in government institutions and the democratic system. Public corruption eats away at equal opportunity and contradicts the loyalties and duties of elected officials and public servants. It undermines social cohesion, and hurts the quality of life of the citizens of the state and economic growth.
Our country needs to belong to the middle class and those struggling to be part of it and not ruled by corrupt politicians who busy themselves for their own benefit, for those with interests, the big corporations or big unions. For years there has been foul play in Israel serving interest groups, wealthy people and workers‘ committees. In this game billions of shekels have been transferred without transparency and without supervision. Politicians received empty and wasteful positions of honor such as the absurd role called „Minister without Portfolio“ just to be placated with a driver and office. Shady businessmen were appointed to direct government companies not because of skill, but only because of the connections.
You know that AstraZeneca’s vaccine is currently in the final stages of the approval process with the European Medicines Agency.
If all requirements are met, the European Medicines Agency could recommend market authorisation by the end of this week.
But there is a problem on the supply side.
Last Friday, the company AstraZeneca surprisingly informed the Commission and the European Union Member States that it intends to supply considerably fewer doses in the coming weeks than agreed and announced.
This new schedule is not acceptable to the European Union.
In der ersten Gesprächsrunde zwischen AstraZeneca, Vertretern der EU-Kommission und den Mitgliedsländern gab es dem Vernehmen nach keine Fortschritte. Man hat die Positionen ausgetauscht. Es sei jedoch nicht sicher, ob AstraZeneca den Ernst der Lage verstanden hat, hieß es aus der Kommission. Am Abend soll eine zweite Gesprächsrunde folgen.

Papathanasiou retracted his statement to WUSA and told CNN the officer was still on life support.
„He had a stroke. I think he’s on life support. We’ve got some misinformation on that. He’s on life support from what I’m hearing,“ Papathanasiou told CNN.

Experts said a ‚period of inactivity‘ in intensive care would result in the Prime Minister suffering a significant loss of muscle mass and strength.
They forecast Mr Johnson would be physically drained from fighting the virus, for which he has received oxygen in St Thomas‘ Hospital in central London.
Here are the statistics from his morning briefing:
Deaths in New York State: 5,489, up by 731 from Monday morning.
Confirmed cases: 138,836 statewide, up from 130,689 on Monday.
Currently hospitalized: 17,493 people statewide, up from 16,837.
In intensive care: 4,593, up by 89 from 4,504 on Monday.
The governor emphasized that the numbers were not an abstraction. “That’s 731 people who we lost,” he said. “Behind every one of those numbers is an individual, is a family, is a mother, is a father, is a sister, is a brother. So a lot of pain again today for many New Yorkers.”
Since Sunday evening, the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus.
Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital.
Symonds, who is currently six months‘ pregnant, is herself recovering after experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, and is now reported to have left Downing Street to isolate elsewhere.
Außenminister Dominic Raab sei gebeten worden, wo nötig die Amtsgeschäfte zu übernehmen.
Robert Jenrick, the Housing and Communities Secretary, insisted that the Prime Minister „will continue to be kept informed as to what’s happening and to be in charge of the Government“ from his hospital bed.
This was echoed by Sir Iain Duncan Smith who said Mr Johnson remained „clear headed“ and would be able to continue running the country, with extra demands falling „on the shoulders“ of his cabinet.
None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!

The Rolling Stones have postponed their upcoming North American tour due to Mick Jagger’s need for medical treatment.
