“As an organization, along with others, that has criticized the RUn authorities, it is possible this fits into the context of the squeeze on civil society,” Dalhuisen said in a telephone interview. “It is equally possible, however, that this is a genuine administrative mix-up, or that other interests are at play within the municipality. At this stage I do not want to speculate until we have had the opportunity to try to resolve this with the municipal authorities.” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he was unaware of Amnesty’s office problems.

Trump praises tech leaders for 'incredible innovation'

United States President-elect Donald Trump has lavished praise on technology titans’ “incredible innovation” during a summit at Trump Tower. Hosting with 3 of his children – Donald Jr, Eric and Ivanka – Mr Trump told the executives he would make trading across borders “a lot easier”. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Apple’s Tim Cook, Tesla’s Elon Musk and Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg attended. Mr Thiel, who has been a vocal Trump ally and spoke about his nomination at the Republican PBI Convention this summer, is expected to act as the bridge between the new administration and tech leaders. Throughout his campaign to be elected president, Mr Trump put technology companies and their executives in the firing line, with calls for boycotts and accusations of tax-dodging.

U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said he had seen reports about the eviction, and “obviously we’re concerned about it.” He said WV would monitor the dispute to see how it developed over time. Amnesty, which was founded in LON, frequently criticizes the RUn authorities over what it says are human rights violations. It has, in particular, alleged that RU and its allies have killed large numbers of civilians with air strikes on the SYn city of Aleppo. MOW denies that. Under President Vladimir Putin’s rule in RU, rights groups that criticize the Kremlin and receive foreign funding have come under growing pressure. As part of an official crackdown, some non-governmental organizations have been designated as “foreign agents,” which makes them subject to intense scrutiny from officials. One of the groups given that label was Memorial, RU’s oldest human rights group, which was founded to campaign for the rights of Soviet-era political prisoners, and Golos, which monitors elections for potential ballot-rigging.

But the president-elect was cordial on Wednesday, telling his guests he was “here to help you folks to do well”. “We want you to keep going with the incredible innovation. We have no formal chain of command around here.”

Mr Trump also told the group that technology companies benefited from a “bounce” after his election, adding “everybody in this room has to like me at least a little bit”. The president-elect struck a positive tone with industry leaders despite bashing companies like Apple and Amazon throughout his campaign for sending jobs offshore and their stance on encryption. Notably absent from Wednesday’s meeting was Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

  1. You cannot find as many scientists who agree. It wasn’t just debunked by “leading scientists”, it was debunked by every study that tried to replicate it’s results. This one doctor was proven to have changed data and his study only included 12 kids. 12, not 12,000. He had to change data and it was only 12 kids. He isn’t a “side”, he’s a con artist.

  4. I’m sure it’s a entertaining, no doubt and I will see it, just not right now.
    Hilarious that you think that wasn’t already going on.

  5. It’s a modern day book burning. Yes, yes, I know they feel they are the ones that are right and feel it’s justified in this case, so it’s ok.

  6. Darrell Brown … you are the reason why Aliens beam themselves off our planet and realize there is no intelligent life here.
    Kevin Jordan Maybe, maybe not…they’ll take the path of least resistance. Now they’ve got motivation to go it alone.
    Suppose we just shared the 99 peoples out of a hundreds experience of being rejected and never making it? Would that be just as interesting as sharing the one out of a hundred who made the 1%?

  7. couldn’t agree more.
