May's last attempt to salvage Brexit deal at risk
British Prime Minister Theresa May's final bid to salvage her EU divorce deal appeared doomed on Wednesday as pro-Brexit Conservatives and opposition MPs rejected her attempts at a compromise to end months of deadlock. The beleaguered leader is set to face a torrid session at Prime Minister's Questions in parliament on the eve of European elections that Britain had not even expected to take part in three years after the Brexit referendum. May vowed Tuesday to give lawmakers a vote on holding a public referendum on Brexit if they approve her unpopular withdrawal agreement in a series of votes starting in early June.

Fears rise China could weaponise rare earths in US tech war
The US has hit China where it hurts by going after its telecom champion Huawei, but Beijing's control of the global supply of rare earths used in smartphones and electric cars gives it a powerful weapon in their escalating tech war. A seemingly routine visit by President Xi Jinping to a Chinese rare earths company this week is being widely read as an obvious threat that Beijing is standing ready for action. Xi's inspection tour "is no accident, this didn't happen by chance," said Li Mingjiang, China programme coordinator at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) in Singapore.

UPDATE 3-U.S. judge says Qualcomm violated antitrust law; appeal planned, shares plunge
Qualcomm Inc illegally suppressed competition in the market for smartphone chips by threatening to cut off supplies and extracting excessive licensing fees, a U.S. judge ruled, a decision that could force the company to overhaul its business practices. The decision issued late Tuesday night by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, caused Qualcomm shares to plunge 9.5 percent in early trading on Wednesday.

Accused Thief Taunted Disney World With Photo of Stolen Robot's Mutilated Head
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast/Photos GettyIf you're accused of stealing an animatronic child from Disney World, maybe don't make a wildly popular Disney-related Twitter account and post a picture of the stolen robot child with its eyes gouged out."Buzzy," an animatronic boy from an abandoned Disney World attraction, has been missing for months. Online, Disney superfans treated the disappearance like a kidnapping. But the investigation into the theft led police to someone in the online Disney fandom: a Disney blogger who taunted Disney about their security, posted conspiracy theories about Buzzy's disappearance and, in the final days before his arrest, uploaded a picture of the robot's decapitated and eyeball-less head.Patrick Spikes, 24, was arrested last week. He worked at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, until last year. But Spikes didn't completely part ways with the theme park after he stopped working there. Instead, he started churning out videos, podcasts, and tweets under the username "BackDoorDisney." His Twitter account, which amassed more than 17,000 followers before going dark last week, promised to give fans an inside view of Disney World. In its seven months of operation, the account uploaded pictures of Disney control rooms, secret maps, and Disney cast members pretending to have sex while dressed as characters from Toy Story.Soon, Spikes was posting about an even more salacious Disney World story. In August, Disney told police that som

Gloria Allred Opens Up About Nearly ‘Bleeding to Death' From Her Illegal Abortion
Kyle Grillot/ReutersAttorney Gloria Allred took the stage at a pro-choice rally in Manhattan on Tuesday and told a harrowing story about nearly "bleeding to death" after she was forced to get an illegal abortion following a rape in the 1960s.Describing herself as "living evidence of what happens if abortion is criminalized," Allred said recent anti-abortion legislation in Alabama, Georgia, and Missouri will effectively condemn women and girls to death by leaving them no options other than illegal abortion. While Alabama's near-total abortion ban stipulates up to 99 year prison sentences for doctors performing abortions, Allred said, "The truth is, the victims are the women and the girls who have to get a back-alley abortion and who are going to be left to die." The women's rights lawyer told the crowd in Foley Square that she'd seen firsthand what it was like for women who had no access to abortion in the 1960s. After being raped at gunpoint in Mexico, she said, she traveled back to the United States, found out she was pregnant, and discovered that it was a crime in many states for doctors to perform abortions. "I had to get a back-alley abortion in a bathtub from a person who was not licensed, they were just doing it for the money," she said. Once she began hemorrhaging, she said, the person who performed the procedure told her it was "[her] problem now." Allred recalled suffering from a 106-degree fever and being packed in ice once she was hospitalized, all while she

Abortion ban protests: Thousands demonstrate against new restrictive laws across America
Massive protests opposing a series of bans against abortions have continued for several days after one of the most stringent abortion laws in the nation was signed into law in Alabama last week. Crowds of demonstrators on Capitol Hill were joined by prominent women's rights activists and politicians on Tuesday, including 2020 presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand, for a rally titled StopTheBans. "Our democracy only works when the people of this country stand up and demand it," the New York senator said to cheers. "Do not allow this moment to pass without putting everything you have behind it … organise, advocate and vote." Across the country, Americans from all walks of life marched in major cities and small towns to oppose bans like the one in Alabama, which makes performing an abortion a felony in nearly all cases. The bill, signed by Republican Governor Kay Ivey, is effectively designed to set up a lengthy legal battle that could result in the Supreme Court revisiting a decades-old decision for Roe v. Wade, which deemed abortion a Constitutionally-protected right. "To the bill's many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians' deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God," the governor said in a statement while signing the bill on Wednesday.Hundreds of demonstrators then marched to the Alabama Capitol on Sunday to protest the state's newly approved abortion ban, chan

First Look at Will Smith as the Genie in Disney's Live-Action 'Aladdin'; Here's Everything We Know
Disney's live-action adaptations of their animated classics are serious business. Even this year's Christopher Robin quietly grossed almost $200 million worldwide. There are many more to come, including four features arriving in 2019 alone: Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King and Lady and the Tramp, the last of which hits the new streaming service Disney later in the year.  Aladdin is sure to be huge, as the 1992 animated version is considered a favorite among all Disney's classics, not just those from the modern era. And if we weren't sure of this beforehand, we definitely guarantee massive success now that the studio has unveiled another widely talked-about teaser for the movie, this one featuring a blue-skinned Will Smith as the iconic Genie.
