Absolved of 'betrayal', Liberal Democrats win anti-Brexit vote
Strobe lights were dancing over the London nightclub when Liberal Democrats leader Vince Cable tapped the microphone and hushed the room with a call to keep Britain in the EU. It was the grandfatherly figure's closing act in an unorthodox campaign that propelled his party of political outcasts to a top-two finish in European elections in which he embodied Britain's anti-Brexit voice. The Liberal Democrats even came first in the Islington borough of London that the main opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn represents in the UK parliament.

Latin American abortion rights activists warn against draconian US laws: ‘I have seen what is it like to live with a total ban'
Activists in Latin America, home to some of the world's toughest restrictions on abortion, have denounced draconian new laws in places such as Alabama, warning they could result in the deaths of women.Campaigners in Honduras, one of five nations in Latin America with complete bans on abortion, and which also prohibits emergency contraception, have urged the government of president Juan Orlando Hernández to make it legal for women to obtain "the day after pill", and known by the acronym PAE."The emergency contraceptive pill is essential to avoid a pregnancy when you have unprotected sex, when condoms fail or in cases of rape," said Ana Fálope, a Honduran women's rights activist and leader of "Hablemos lo que es", the name of the legalisation campaign, and a commonly used phrase that translates as "let's call it what it is"."This emergency contraceptive is completely safe, has no side effects different from regular contraceptives, it does not affect women's fertility and does not cause cancer. This has been indicated by the World Health Organisation, which also believes that PAE should be available to all women."Activists say they have been dispirited by recent events in the US, where a succession of states have passed laws banning or restricting abortion, part of a campaign to try and force the Supreme Court to reconsider 1973's Roe v Wade ruling that gave women the right to a

British climber who died in Everest 'death zone' had feared overcrowding on summit's slopes
A British climber, who became the latest person to die on Mount Everest this season, admitted before setting off that he feared the dangers of overcrowding in the "death zone". Robin Haynes Fisher, 44, died on his descent after reaching the 8,850-metre (29,035 feet) summit of the world's highest mountain. He passed away in the "death zone", the area named for the low levels of oxygen on descent from the summit. Mr Fisher, who lived in Birmingham, is one of at least eight climbers to die on the treacherous slopes in the current climbing season that ends this month. Hiking officials attributed most of the deaths to weakness, exhaustion and delays on the crowded route to the summit. In his last social media post on Tuesday, Mr Fisher wrote how he had changed his climbing plans in order to avoid the crowds. View this post on Instagram Climbed up to camp 3, 7500m but the jet stream had returned closing the summit after only 2 days so I descended to basecamp. Around 100 climbers did summit in those 2 days with sadly 2 deaths, an Indian man found dead in his tent at camp 4 and an Irish climber lost, assumed fallen, on his descent. A go fund me page has been set up for a rescue bid for the Irish climber but it is a well meaning but futile gesture. Condolences to both their friends and families. Both deaths happened above 8000m in the so called death zone where the majority of deaths of foreign climbers happen. Around 700 more people will be looking to summit f

Our Cartoon President: Season One with World Class Amenities
When political times are bad, humor is often the only remedy. Stephen Colbert tries to help here with an animated parody of President Donald Trump, his family and staff- first seen in small segments on his "Late Show" but expanded to a half-hour series for Showtime (where there's much less content restriction.) Everyone, on both political sides, is depicted here as caricatures as you'd see in newspaper political cartoons- Trump with an orange face and obviously fake hair, his wife Melania looking and talking a bit like "Natasha" from Rocky and Bullwinkle, daughter Ivanka as a stereotypical "valley girl" and (now-former) Attorney General Jeff Sessions oddly as a small gnome-like being, to name just a few. Each episode is given a loose plot that seems to exist mainly just to support the jokes the wri...Read the entire review
