Rapper Kanye West says he no longer supports Trump: Report

WASHINGTON (BLOOMBERG) – Kanye West no longer supports President Trump, Forbes reported, citing an interview with the American rapper who says he plans to run for president.

The rapper intends to run for election under the banner of “the Birthday Party”.

“I would run as a Republican if Trump wasn’t there. I will run as an independent if Trump is there,” West told Forbes.

West says he believes he was sick with Covid-19 in February and is suspicious of a potential vaccine, according to Forbes.

He denied that his announcement was a publicity stunt for his upcoming album.

He has selected Ms Michelle Tidball, a preacher from Wyoming, to be his running mate, according to the report.

West has taken almost no concrete steps towards a presidential bid, including filing papers officially declaring a candidacy, qualifying for ballot access or building a campaign infrastructure.

Risk of injury, and co.: these are the most unhealthy Jobs

While a squatting several hours a day in front of the computer, risking others in their Professions or their health. But what kind of Jobs are actually the most dangerous?

Online contact lens retailer and expert for glasses and contact lenses, Lenstore, has conducted a study, on the basis of which occupations according to their risk for the health of the Population, were classified.

In this study, 48 different occupations on the basis of eight different risks with values from 0 (very safe) to 100 were classified (most dangerous).

From the average, this eventually results in the total risk.

The eight health risks

This includes, among other things, that the security of a profession is contrary to often the opportunity to stay fit.

However, the probability of a common danger and ways to protect yourself, or negative consequences of offset, are to be observed in the assessment.

The relevant categories of the health risks range from the risk of injury about a possible risk of infection, to Maintain a healthy posture and overall Fitness.

Within these categories, gradations, in turn, are made. So apply at the risk of’ damage to the sense, to suffer the perception of very high or very low temperatures as dangerous as a loud noise.

Physical proximity is regarded as a large risk

At first glance, the Drilling rig operator appears as a clear loser.

He is called as the most dangerous profession because it is associated with the highest risk of injury, the most damage to the sensory perception and the one with the most sun damage.

The overall risk is calculated in a different way, which is why the title of ‘ emergency paramedic emerges as ungesündeste from this study.

In him also is the risk of infection in addition to possible damage to the sense-perception is particularly high.

And this is classified as more serious than, for example, the risk of injury, which is exposed to a Drilling rig operator, because of physical proximity as the most common infection is a risk.

Gesündester profession of the tax consultant

Since some problems may be more easily resolved than others, the profession of tax Advisor as the healthiest of the study, closely followed by the web developers.

A lack of Fitness due to working a Desk, you can compensate easily with a walk during the lunch break or by driving with the bike to work.

Somewhat more complicated, the relief for the eyes after long hours of screen viewing is here. In the best case, so experts advise, should you all of 20 minutes, the eyes for about 20 seconds from the Screen and something about 20 meters far Away turn to in order to save the eye.

Cooking and hairdressing are in the midfield

In midfield, the profession of hairdresser is, for example. A certain amount of infection in this profession risk by human contact and also muscles and joints are stressed by the many, but in all other categories the values are extremely low.

For example, the hair is exposed to any risk due to sun damage (0), has no need to fear damage to the sensory perception through his job and doesn’t live a particularly dangerous during its activity.

Kate and William to capitalise on Megxit and Royal Family break up as focus shifts to them

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William had been expected to see pressure grow on them after the departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have indeed been faced with new challenges and additions to their already busy schedules but have appeared to take on the changes in their stride. Royal commentator Duncan Larcombe suggested the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to quit actually helped Kate and William focus more on their “important” job.

Speaking to True Royalty TV, Mr Larcombe said: “Despite all the noise around Harry and Meghan, the reality is William and Kate have got a pretty important job to do.

“This is giving them space, and to some extent the Prince Andrew ongoing Epstein saga, it is giving William and Kate the space to focus on the job they’ve got to do.

“And I think at the moment, they are doing very well.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they would take a step back from royal life in January and the Duke of York was forced to take a temporary retirement from his duties over his connection to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

JUST IN: Prince Harry looks ‘trapped’ with Meghan Markle in ‘awkward’ meeting

With the departure of three senior members of the Royal Family, Kate and William were seen as the natural heirs to Harry, Meghan and Andrew’s duties because of their position in the pecking order.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have indeed played a pivotal role in helping the Queen and Prince Charles keep up the morale of British and Commonwealth supporters through the lockdown.

Kate and William moved most of their operations online and continued to hold virtual engagements to show their support to their charities as well as NHS staff for their work.

The pair have also been juggling their official activities with the unexpected challenge of homeschooling their eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

But after weeks spent in lockdown in their country retreat, Anmer Hall, both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have resumed their public duties as restrictions began to be eased.

Last week Prince William showed his support to the pub and restaurant sector ahead of their reopening by paying a visit to his local pub and sharing a pint of cider with the staff.

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out to visit a family-owned garden centre in mid-June and later helping create a special garden from children and their families at a Norfolk children’s hospice.

Kate and William are however expected to take a break with their children after months of intense work.

While their usual escape to the royal holiday hotspot of Mustique is unlikely to happen this year because of widespread limitations on travel, the Duke and Duchess could still enjoy some time off around the UK.

The royal couple treated their children, George, Charlotte and Louis, to a week-long break in the Lake District last year and may opt to do so again after Kate admitted the three had loved the experience.

But during her visit to Fakenham Garden Centre in Norfolk last month, the Duchess of Cambridge noted she had not seen her parents since the start of the lockdown as they live too far away.

She said: “I’ve yet to see my family as they’re about three hours away in Berkshire, so I haven’t seen them and I miss them.”

A visit to Berkshire could then be in the plans for the Cambridge family.

‘Nothing to do with them’ Donald Trump sparks fury as President removes US from WHO

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, Dr Nabarro claims it is sad to see the US pull out of the WHO as the most important country in the organisation’s budget. He warned the coronavirus pandemic will get “much worse” in the next six months and without the US the global effort to fight the virus will suffer. He said: “I’m just really sad because the world is facing a massive health crisis, it’s been extremely bad for the last six months, I fear it’s going to get much worse in the next six months.

“We still got a lot to find out about this virus and how to deal with it and it just seems really unfortunate that the most important in terms of size in the WHO budget, the most important country, decided to pull out.

“And I’m also really sad for the American people who I’m sure by and large want to be part of the global response and will be a bit confused about why this has happened.”

Asked whether tensions between China and Taiwan over the latter’s membership to WHO could have pushed the US President to make that decision, Dr Nabarro blasted: “First of all, the decision about whether Taiwan or anybody else is a member of the WHO is nothing to do with the WHO and its staff.

“It’s all to do with the people who run the WHO and they are the countries of the world. They elect each year about whether or not Taiwan or other members join – super important that everybody knows that.

“Secondly, the communications with the people in Taiwan and the institutions of Taiwan by the WHO were in no way affected by this and there’s been regular correspondence between them.”

The United States will leave the World Health Organisation on July 6, 2021, the United Nations said on Tuesday after receiving formal notification of the decision by President Donald Trump more than a month ago.

Trump had to give one-year notice of the US withdrawal from the Geneva-based UN agency under a 1948 joint resolution of the US Congress, which also obliges Washington to pay financial support. The United States currently owes the WHO more than $200 million in assessed contributions, according to the WHO website.

After more than 70 years of membership, the United States moved to quit the WHO after Trump accused it of becoming a puppet of China amid the coronavirus pandemic. The virus first emerged in China’s Wuhan city late last year.

“The Secretary-General is in the process of verifying with the World Health Organisation whether all the conditions for such withdrawal are met,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

Trump had halted funding for the 194-member organization in April, then in a May 18 letter gave the WHO 30 days to commit to reforms. He announced the United States would quit less than two weeks later.

The WHO is an independent international body that works with the United Nations. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has said that the WHO is “absolutely critical to the world’s efforts to win the war against COVID-19.” Trump has long scorned multilateralism as he focuses on an “America First” agenda.

Since taking office, he has quit the UN Human Rights Council, the UN cultural agency, a global accord to tackle climate change and the Iran nuclear deal. He has also cut funding for the UN population fund and the U.N. agency that aids Palestinian refugees.

US coronavirus task force response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said that the United States and other countries could have had a stronger initial response to COVID-19 if China had been more forthcoming about key features of the virus.

At a panel held by the Atlantic Council, a US think tank, Birx said the United States would have been more focused on identifying COVID-19 patients without symptoms if China has shared information about the frequency with which COVID-19 patients, particularly young people, are asymptomatic.

“I have to say if we had known about the level of asymptomatic spread, we would have all looked at this differently,” Birx said at the panel. “That’s usually the initial countries’ responsibility and I think that did delay across the board our ability to really see or look for this.”

Birx said that public health officials had originally assumed that only 15 to 20 percent of COVID-19 patients are asymptomatic when in fact that number is at least 40 percent.

“We were looking for people with symptoms. We should have looked for anyone who would have been exposed,” she said.

President Donald Trump has levelled blame at China for the outbreak, saying the country should have warned the world much sooner.

China’s United States embassy told Reuters in a statement that China has been open, transparent and responsible since the pandemic broke out.

“We notified the [World Health Organisation] of the epidemic, shared the genome sequencing of the virus, carried out international cooperation and helped other countries affected, all at the earliest time possible,” the statement said. “These are plain, internationally recognised facts, which cannot be denied or erased by anyone.”

The United States saw a 27 percent increase in new cases of COVID-19 in the week ended July 5 compared with the previous seven days.

North Korea chaos: Kim Jong-un forced to make major closures as crisis strikes

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Primary and secondary schools in North Korea have been ordered to close and go on early summer holidays amid concerns of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, according to Radio Free Asia’s Korean Service. The major move comes despite the secretive state claiming it is the only neighbour of China not to have reported a single case of COVID-19 since the outbreak.

The school year in North Korea usually begins in January or February, afterthe Lunar New Year.

But the start of the year was delayed and pushed back to June 1 due to the coronavirus crisis.

A Pyongyang resident told RFA: “In the aftermath of the coronavirus, schools here in Pyongyang have stopped classes and began early vacations.

“Students from the provinces who are attending Pyongyang No.1 Senior Middle School, are all returning home.

“Classes were being held as normal at Pyongyang No.1 Senior Middle School, but somehow school authorities suddenly ordered the students from the provinces to return home, saying that they were to be on vacation from July 1.”

The source said the move was taken as part of emergency measures to fight the coronavirus.

They added: “What I know is that the school explained to the students that the suspension of classes and the early vacation were part of emergency measures related to the spread of the coronavirus.”

Another source said North Korean school children would probably not return to the classroom until September.

They said: “If even the capital is not safe from the coronavirus, how can we believe in our socialist medical system that’s supposed to be superior to the rest of the world?“

“Unless the spread of the coronavirus stops, students will not be able to go back to school until early September.”

It comes after claims North Korea backtracked on plans to reopen border trade with Beijing over fears of new coronavirus cases in nearby northeastern Chinese provinces.

The move was despite North Korea’s economy being crippled by a halt in trade with China on top of US and UN sanctions designed to deter the regime from developing its missile programme.

 

A North Korean trade worker in the Chinese port city Dalian, said it was Kim Jong-Un North Korea who rejected opening the borders with China.

China challenges US to cut nuclear arsenal to matching level

BEIJING (REUTERS) – China would “be happy to” participate in trilateral arms control negotiations with the United States and Russia, but only if the United States were willing to reduce its nuclear arsenal to China’s level, a senior Chinese diplomat said on Wednesday (July 8).

Washington has repeatedly called for China to join in trilateral negotiations to extend New Start, a flagship nuclear arms treaty between the United States and Russia that is due to expire in February next year.

Mr Fu Cong, head of the arms control department of Chinese foreign ministry, reiterated to reporters in Beijing on Wednesday that China has no interest in joining the negotiation with former Cold War-era superpowers, given that the US nuclear arsenal is about 20 times the size of China’s.

“I can assure you, if the US says that they are ready to come down to the Chinese level, China would be happy to participate the next day,” he said. “But actually, we know that’s not going to happen.”

Mr Fu asserted that for the United States, asking China to participate in trilateral negotiations is “nothing but a ploy to divert attention” and an excuse for the United States to walk away from the New Start extension.

“The real purpose is to get rid of all restrictions and have a free hand in seeking military superiority over any adversary, real or imagined,” said Mr Fu.

Mr Fu maintained China is not “shying away from the international nuclear disarmament process” and is prepared to discuss within the framework of the United Nations Security Council’s five permanent members all issues related to the reduction of nuclear risks.
