Juan Guaido's chief of staff snatched from his home at 2am
Juan Guaido's chief of staff was taken from his home in the early hours of Thursday, ratcheting up tensions in an already fraught Venezuela. Roberto Marrero shouted out loud that forces loyal to Nicolas Maduro, the president, had planted two rifles and a grenade on him, Mr Guaido tweeted. Mr Guaido said that Mr Marrero had been taken by Sebin, the Venezuelan intelligence agency, and was being detained at an unknown location. Mr Marrero's neighbour, Sergio Vergara, a pro-Guaido deputy, was detained for two hours but was finally able to raise the alarm. "Look after the president," Mr Marrero said, in a voice message sent to reporters by Mr Guaido's press team, as he reported that agents were trying to enter his house. The press team also sent a video of another opposition politician showing damage to the door of Mr Marrero's home and a broken lock. Secuestraron a @ROBERTOMARRERO, jefe de mi despacho.

New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern said Thursday that the country will ban military-style semi-automatic weapons, assault rifles and high-capacity magazines after the shooting massacre that killed 50 last week."On 15 March our history changed forever. Now our laws will too. We are announcing action today on behalf of all New Zealanders to strengthen our gun laws and make our country a safer place," Arden said at a new conference in Wellington, the country's capital."Every semi-automatic weapon used in the terror attack on Friday will be banned," Ardern promised, adding that the legislation will be "drafted and introduced in urgency."On Friday, a 28-year-old Australian gunman who identified with white supremacist causes and possessed a firearms license shot up two mosques in Christchurch, killing 50 and injuring 50, including small children, the deadliest shooting in the country's recent history. The shooter was caught and charged with murder and will appear in court next on April 5.Arden promised citizens a day after the shooting that "our gun laws will change.""While work is being done as to the chain of events that lead to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now.

New Zealand Prime Minister announces immediate ban on all assault weapons
New Zealand will ban military-style semi-automatic and assault rifles under tough new gun laws following the killing of 50 people in the country's worst mass shooting, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Thursday. In the immediate aftermath of Friday's shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, Ms Ardern labelled the attack as terrorism and said New Zealand's gun laws would change. "On 15 March our history changed forever. Now, our laws will too. We are announcing action today on behalf of all New Zealanders to strengthen our gun laws and make our country a safer place," Ms Ardern told a new conference. "All semi-automatic weapons used during the terrorist attack on Friday 15 March will be banned." Ms Ardern said she expects the new laws to be in place by April 11 and a buy-back scheme will be established for banned weapons. The buyback would cost up to NZ$200 million ($138 million), she said. All military style semi-automatics (MSSA) and assault rifles would be banned, along with parts used to convert weapons into MSSAs and all high-capacity magazines. Under existing New Zealand gun laws, A-category weapons can be semi-automatic but limited to seven shots. Live-streamed video of a gunman in one of the mosques showed a semi-automatic weapon with a large magazine. Australia banned semi-automatic weapons and launched a gun buy-back after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996 in which 35 people were gunned down.

Under the terms of the 2015 deal with Citigroup's Citibank, Venezuela was due to repay $1.1 billion of the loan on March 11, according to four sources familiar with the situation. Citibank plans to sell the gold held as a guarantee - which has a market value of roughly $1.358 billion - to recover the first tranche of the loan and will deposit the excess of roughly $258 million in a bank account in New York, two of the sources said.

The jury decision was a blow to Bayer after the judge in the Hardeman case, at the company's request, had split the trial, severely limiting evidence plaintiffs could present in the first phase. Tuesday's defeat on terms considered advantageous to Bayer sets up the second phase to be even tougher and limits the grounds on which the company could appeal any final verdict, the experts said.

Amazon just unveiled an all-new Kindle
Amazon on Wednesday rolled out an updated version of its Kindle e-reader, giving the entry-level version of the tablet a small price bump and adding a front light to it -- making this the first Kindle with a front light you can get your hands on for less than $100.At that price, it no doubt sounds like quite a steal, though there are a few key points to be aware of. This $89.99 version of the device includes the screen saver ads you'll have to accept, unless you want to pay more for a version of the Kindle without them. Amazon says this version of the Kindle also include updated electronic ink technology for better contrast, in addition to a six-inch, 167 PPI capacitive touch display.That display contrasts with the 300 PPI version found on the Kindle Paperwhite and Oasis, with the $90 Kindle also being the only one in the device family that isn't waterproof. So, again, there are some trade-offs if you want an e-reader at this low of a price.In terms of what else is new about the updated entry-level Kindle ... the front light is, well, kind of it. Which is not to say there aren't myriad benefits to mention, especially if this is your first Kindle or maybe even your first e-reader. It's thin and light, so it's easy to hold, and the on-device storage allows you to keep thousands of books on hand. You also get a battery that lasts for weeks, and for a limited time, Amazon will give you three months of Kindle Unlimited for free (a $30 value) when you order the device.Kindle Unlimited provides unlimited access to millions of titles, which lets you read popular authors acro

Justice Thomas speaks as U.S. top court confronts racial bias in jury selection
U.S. Supreme Court justices appeared poised to side with a black Mississippi death row inmate put on trial six times for a 1996 quadruple murder who accused a prosecutor of repeatedly blocking black potential jurors, though the court's only black member sounded skeptical. Justice Clarence Thomas, who had not posed a question during an oral argument in three years, asked several in the case involving Curtis Flowers, 48, who has argued that his constitutional right to a fair trial was violated. Thomas, an idiosyncratic conservative and only the second African American ever appointed to the court, signaled through his questions he might vote against Flowers, who otherwise drew broad support among the other justices, both liberal and conservative.

Top US court troubled by case of black man tried six times
Flowers, 48, was convicted in 2010 and sentenced to death for the July 1996 murders of four people in a furniture store in Winona, Mississippi, where he had briefly worked until being fired. Flowers was tried five separate times for the crime before his 2010 conviction and has spent nearly half his life behind bars. The Supreme Court is not examining the guilt or innocence of Flowers but whether the district attorney deliberately sought to keep black people off the jury in his most recent trial.

Fed Says It Won't Hike Rates in 2019, Citing Economic Slowdown
The Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged Wednesday and predicted that it will not raise them again for the entirety of the coming year due to a recent slowdown in economic growth.In a widely anticipated move, the central bank's policy-making Federal Open Market Committee abandoned its previous prediction, made just three-months ago, of continued strong economic growth that would necessitate two rate hikes this year.After predicting in December that the economy would continue to grow at 2.3 percent on the year, officials revised their assessment to 2.1 percent. As a result, the benchmark-funds rate will remain between 2.25 percent and 2.5 percent. The Fed has generally kept rates low since the 2008 financial crisis, but began raising them incrementally under Janet Yellen.The new economic-growth forecast further widens the chasm between the central bank and the White House, which has consistently provided the rosier prediction of 3.2 percent growth this year.The decision to halt rate hikes will likely please President Trump, who, following the Fed's December announcement, lambasted Chairman Jerome Powell for threatening the bull market he's enjoyed since taking office. It is incredible that with a very strong dollar and virtually no inflation, the outside world blowing up around us, Paris is burning and China way down, the Fed is even considering yet another interest rate hike. Take the Victory! -- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 17, 2018Powell, for his part, has resisted criticizing the presid

2020 election: Kamala Harris and Beto O'Rourke jump in new poll, but Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders tie as frontrunners
A new poll has revealed early gains for Kamala Harris and Beto O'Rourke in the growing field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates — but they're still far from being the frontrunners at this stage in the game. Joe Biden, the former vice president who has yet to formally announce his candidacy, has been leading the pack in a slate of polls putting him ahead of his lesser known potential opponents. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is now tied with Mr Biden at 26 per cent of total support from Democratic voters, however, according to a new Emerson poll released on Wednesday.

Border Patrol Releases Migrants, Citing Lack of Space in Detention Centers
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol on Tuesday released 50 migrants recently detained at the border near Mcallen, Texas due to a lack of space in the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centers they would otherwise be sent to while awaiting their asylum hearings.CPB officials told the Los Angeles Times that the migrants released Tuesday represent just the first wave of a group of hundreds whom they will be forced to release in the coming days due to a lack of resources.Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Diaz said the 50 migrants were given notices to appear in court and released to local charities after their processing center in McAllen was overwhelmed by the number of migrants arriving each day."It is a crisis," an unnamed CPB official told the Times. "It's not a self-proclaimed crisis."The unnamed official's assessment of the situation at the border echoes those of President Trump and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, who have raised alarms in recent months about the particular challenges posed by the high numbers of Central American families arriving at the border every day."In February, we saw a 30 percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens," Nielsen told the House Committee on Homeland Security earlier this month. "This is an 80 percent increase over the same time last year. And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up.""O

Erdogan remarks on N. Zealand massacre taken 'out of context': presidency
Comments by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan following the massacre in New Zealand that sparked protest by Australia were taken "out of context", a senior aide said on Wednesday, after Canberra summoned Turkey's envoy over the remarks. "President #Erdogan's words were unfortunately taken out of context," Fahrettin Altun, communications director for the Turkish presidency, wrote on Twitter. Erdogan angered Australia after he warned anti-Muslim Australians -- like the suspected gunman -- would be "sent back in coffins" like their grandfathers at Gallipoli, which was the scene of a blood-drenched WWI battle.

Bachelet told the U.N. Human Rights Council that she had information, without elaborating, that the National Police's Special Actions Force (FAES) had executed 37 people in January in Caracas in illegal house raids in poor areas supporting the opposition. "... my office documented numerous human rights violations and abuses by security forces and pro-government armed groups, including excessive use of force, killings, arbitrary detentions, torture and ill-treatment in detention, and threats and intimidation," she said.

Schumer to Reintroduce Bill Naming Senate Building after McCain
Senator Chuck Schumer said Wednesday that he plans to reintroduce a bill that would rename the Russell Senate Office Building after the late senator John McCain, amid a rekindled public feud between President Trump and the McCain family."I look forward to soon re-introducing my legislation re-naming the Russell Senate Building after American hero, Senator John McCain," the Senate minority leader wrote in a tweet Wednesday.Schumer's announcement came after Trump said Tuesday at the White House that, "I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be."McCain passed away from brain cancer at 81 years of age last August. The Arizona Republican's daughter, Meghan McCain, has vehemently defended her father from Trump's attacks, saying Monday that the president's focus on her father is a sign of his "pathetic life."Trump's beef with McCain, who lost the presidential election to Barack Obama in 2008, stretches back to the 2016 campaign season, when he criticized McCain for being captured and suffering for more than five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam."He's not a war hero," Trump said at the time of McCain. "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."Trump's frustration with McCain was aggravated by the senator's dramatic eleventh-hour vote against repealing the Affordable Care Act in July 2017. The senator "told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace," Trump said Tuesday. "And then for some reason — I think I understand the reason — he ended
