Pope to return to virtual general audiences due to participant COVID-19 case
Pope Francis' weekly general audiences, which had resumed with the public participating, will be moved back indoors and held virtually after one participant tested positive for the coronavirus, the Vatican said on Thursday.

Merkel heckled in German parliament after warning against Covid-19 'lies and disinformation'
Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, was heckled by opposition MPs during a speech to parliament on Thursday, while taking aim at groups spreading "lies and disinformation" as the country continues to battle the coronavirus crisis. The speech, which took place the morning after Mrs Merkel announced a range of sweeping reforms to tackle the spread of the pandemic, warned that the German people find themselves in a "dramatic situation". On Thursday morning, Germany recorded 16,774 new daily coronavirus infections, the highest number of new cases within a 24-hour period since the pandemic began. In a veiled criticism of the far-right Alternative for Germany - staunch opponents of the country's lockdown measures - Mrs Merkel laid out a plea for unity. "Lies, disinformation, conspiracy theories and hate not only damage democratic debate, but also the fight against the coronavirus" Mrs Merkel said. "Soothing wishful thinking and populist trivialisation (of the coronavirus) is not only unrealistic, it is irresponsible." The speech was frequently interrupted by jeers from AfD MPs. Such interjections are rare in German parliament, with house speaker Wolfgang Schäuble threatening the hecklers with calls to order and criticising their "dangerous" behaviour.

Banks roll out robots as pandemic shakes up IT plans
When banks were flooded with loan requests from businesses struggling with the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, hastily built robots helped several lenders cope with the deluge. The bots were one of many quick technology changes deployed across the industry during the crisis, a contrast to the slow progress it's made in the past two decades to improve technology in the face of increasing competition from fintech rivals. Now the jolt from the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the process even though banks globally are having to cut IT spending this year for the first time since 2009, based on data from research company IDC.

Blame Game Begins After Trump's Nebraska Rally Sh*tshow
President Donald Trump went to Omaha, Nebraska Tuesday night hoping to boost his chances of winning the area's competitive electoral college vote.But he left a logistical mess in his wake at Eppley Airfield as scores of people were left trying to get back to their vehicles via buses from the large-scale event in the midst of a raging pandemic.Trump's rallies during the pandemic have already worried health experts because, even when they're outdoors, the large events feature little in the way of social distancing and lax mask-wearing from the audience. But the logistical issues in Omaha likely only compound the existing anxieties over holding such big events and gathering so many people together at a time when health experts are still sounding the alarm over the deadly coronavirus.No Lockdown, No Problem, Says Nebraska GOP Guv as Cases RiseThe Omaha World-Herald reported there were hundreds left stranded for "up to three hours in freezing temperatures," as they attempted to leave the event via chartered buses.A spokesperson for the Omaha Police Department said in an email that "buses loaded and hauled approximately 25,000 people to the event site over a 10 hour period of time," from 10 a.m. Tuesday until the start of the event. But estimates about how many people headed to the airfield have varied, and the spokesperson noted the numbers were preliminary.Officer Michael Pecha, a public information officer with the Omaha Police Department, said that six people were taken to area hospitals with a variety of medical conditions.

Comics on Film: What the 'Black Panther' Golden Globe Nomination Could Mean for Comic Book Movies
You don't have to be a hardcore comic book fan to understand the fact that, almost universally, comic book movies just don't get taken seriously as dramatic works of art. Even the most artistically-conscious and technically proficient movie, invested into by major studios and visionary directors, will be looked down upon by some cinematic observers because its source material comes from the medium of comics. That's why the recent announcement of Black Panther as a nominee for Best Picture in the drama category at the forthcoming Golden Globe awards is so momentous. It's been a decade since a comic book movie was thought of as a legitimately artistic entry into the long-running cinematic canon, when director Christopher Nolan brought together his world-class...
