Iranian teen detained over dancing Instagram post
Posted: 08 Jul 2018 10:30 AM PDT
Iran has detained a teenage girl who posted dance videos on Instagram and attracted tens of thousands of followers. State TV broadcast a video on Friday in which Maedeh Hojabri, 18-year-old gymnast, acknowledged breaking moral norms while insisting that was not her intention, and that she was only trying to gain more followers. It was unclear whether her statement was made under duress. Shabooneh, a local news website, said Hojabri and three other individuals were detained on similar charges in recent weeks before being released on bail. She had posted around 300 videos on her account, many of which showed her dancing in both Iranian and Western styles. She also appeared in videos without wearing the obligatory Islamic headscarf. Her performances had thousands of followers on various accounts with her name on them, ranging from 12,000 to 66,000 followers. None of the accounts were verified. چیو باید اعتراف کرد؟ بابت لرزوندن سینه از کی خط گرفتی؟؟ چگونه قر کمر رو وارد کشور میکردین؟؟ هم دستات تو سبک باباکرم کیا بودن؟؟؟ A post shared by MahiMaedeh (@maedeh_hozhabri) on Jul 8, 2018 at 7:14am PDT Iranian police have said they plan to shut down similar accounts on Instagram, and the judiciary is considering blocking access to the site. Iran has already blocked access to many social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the Telegram messaging app. Millions of Iranians continue to use the sites through proxies and VPNs. Iran's judiciary and security forces are dominated by hard-liners who launch periodic crackdowns on behavior deemed un-Islamic. The latest arrests came amid a series of protests against the government's handling of the economy. In 2014 authorities sentenced six young men and women to suspended prison terms after they appeared in a video dancing to Pharrell Williams' song “Happy.”

Mexico's next president aims to end foreign fuel imports in three years
Posted: 07 Jul 2018 07:45 PM PDT
By David Alire Garcia and Miguel Angel Gutierrez MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will seek to end the country’s massive fuel imports, nearly all from the United States, during the first three years of his term while also boosting refining at home. The landslide winner of last Sunday’s election told reporters on Saturday morning before attending private meetings with members of his future cabinet that he will also prioritize growing crude oil production domestically, which has fallen sharply for years. “The objective is that we stop buying foreign gasoline by the half way point of my six-year term,” said Lopez Obrador, repeating a position he and his senior energy advisor staked out during the campaign.

U.S. to reunite only half of young migrant children by Tuesday deadline
Posted: 09 Jul 2018 02:29 PM PDT
By Marty Graham and Tom Hals SAN DIEGO/WILMINGTON, Del. (Reuters) – The U.S. government is struggling to reunite immigrant families it separated at the border with Mexico and only about half the children under age 5 will be back with their parents by a court-ordered deadline of Tuesday, a government attorney told a judge on Monday. U.S. Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego last month ordered the government to reunite the approximately 100 children under the age of 5 by Tuesday, and the estimated 2,000 older children by July 26. Sarah Fabian, an attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, said 54 children younger than 5 would be reunited with parents by the end of Tuesday, and the number could increase depending on background checks.

Japan floods: Scores dead and dozens missing as two million are told to evacuate amid record rains
Posted: 07 Jul 2018 07:57 PM PDT
Shinzo Abe, Japan's Prime Minister, has warned of a “race against time” to rescue flood victims as authorities issued new alerts over record rains that have killed at least 48 people and left dozens missing. The torrential downpours have caused flash flooding and landslides across central and western parts of the country, prompting evacuation orders for more than two million people. “Rescues, saving lives and evacuations are a race against time,” Mr Abe said as he met with a government crisis cell set up to respond to the disaster. “There are still many people whose safety has yet to be confirmed,” he added. Top government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said the death toll in days of record rains now stood at 48, but the toll was expected to rise further. National broadcaster NHK said at least 62 people were dead and 44 missing. The Japan Meteorological Agency said three hours of rainfall in one area in Kochi prefecture reached an accumulated 26.3 centimeters (10.4 inches), the highest since such records started in 1976.

Isolated residents are being rescued from their homes Credit: The Asahi Shimbun via Getty Images The rain has completely blanketed some villages, forcing desperate residents to take shelter on their rooftops with flood water swirling below as they wait for rescue. Over two million people have been told to evacuate, but the orders are not mandatory and many remained at home, becoming trapped by rapidly rising water or sudden landslides. The meteorological agency issued its highest level alert for two new regions on Sunday, while lifting the alerts for other areas where rains were subsiding.

Roads were transformed into muddy flowing rivers, with dirt piled up on either side and stranded cars barely withstanding the current flowing around their wheels.

We are suffering water and food shortages,” a nurse told public broadcaster NHK. Over 50,000 rescue workers, police and military personnel have been mobilised to respond to the disaster, which has left entire villages submerged by flooding, with just the top of traffic lights visible above the rising waters. “My house was simply washed away and completely destroyed,” Toshihide Takigawa, a 35-year-old employee at a gas station in Hiroshima, told the Nikkei daily on Saturday. “I was in a car and massive floods of water gushed towards me from the front and back and then engulfed the road. I was just able to escape, but I was terrified,” 62-year-old Yuzo Hori told the Mainichi Shimbun daily in Hiroshima. Rescue workers dig to search missing people in Hiroshima Credit: Getty Though the typhoon began last week, the worst of the rain hit from Thursday, when a construction worker was swept away by floodwaters in western Japan. The toll has risen steadily since then, and the conditions have made rescue operations difficult, with some desperate citizens taking to Twitter to call for help. “Water came to the middle of the second floor,” a woman in Kurashiki, Okayama wrote, posting a picture of her room half swamped by flooding. “The kids could not climb up to the rooftop,” she said. “My body temperature has lowered. Rescue us quickly. Help us.” In some place rescuers were using boats, or helicopters to airlift those affected to safety. Several major manufacturers, including carmakers Daihatsu and Mitsubishi, said they had suspended operations at plants in the affected areas. The disaster is the deadliest rain-related crisis in Japan since 2014, when at least 74 people were killed in landslides caused by torrential downpours in the Hiroshima region.
Nissan admits falsifying emissions data on cars made in Japan
Posted: 09 Jul 2018 02:01 AM PDT
Nissan admitted Monday that data on exhaust emissions and fuel economy had been deliberately “altered”, dealing a blow to the Japanese car giant’s efforts to recover trust after an inspection scandal last year. The company did not say how many cars were affected by the falsifications, which were uncovered during voluntary tests of all parts of Nissan’s operations conducted in the wake of last year’s scandal. It said tests on exhaust emissions and fuel economy had “deviated from the prescribed testing environment”.

Insurers warn of rising premiums after Trump axes Obamacare payments again
Posted: 08 Jul 2018 02:46 PM PDT
By Amanda Becker and Carl O’Donnell WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – Health insurers warned that a move by the Trump administration on Saturday to temporarily suspend a program that was set to pay out $10.4 billion to insurers for covering high-risk individuals last year could drive up premium costs and create marketplace uncertainty. The Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) “risk adjustment” program is intended to incentivize health insurers to cover individuals with pre-existing and chronic conditions by collecting money from insurers with relatively healthy enrollees to offset the costs of other insurers with sicker ones. President Donald Trump’s administration has used its regulatory powers to undermine the ACA on multiple fronts after the Republican-controlled Congress last year failed to repeal and replace the law propelled by Democratic President Barack Obama.
