Theresa May survives attempt to allow early no-confidence vote

Thursday 19:06 GMT

Theresa May has survived an attempt to change Tory party rules to make it possible to oust her within weeks, but backbench MPs have demanded a “roadmap” for her departure, in a fresh blow to her authority.

The prime minister saw off a no-confidence vote at the end of last year and the party’s rules stipulate that a fresh challenge cannot be launched for 12 months after that date. Brady said the decision by the committee on Wednesday was the result of “two lengthy meetings and a good, full and constructive debate, in a friendly and collegiate way”.

Facebook beats profit estimates, sets aside $3 billion for privacy...

Thursday 21:51 GMT

(Reuters) - Facebook Inc on Wednesday blew away Wall Street profit estimates in the first quarter as it kept a lid on the costs of making its social networks safer, and set aside $3 billion to cover a settlement with U.S. regulators, calming investors who had worried about the outcome of a months-long federal probe.

Excluding the $3 billion it set aside, Facebook would have earned $1.89 a share, up from $1.69 the year prior and easily beating analysts’ average estimate of $1.63 per share, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

San Jose Sharks score 4 goals in 4 minutes, stun Vegas Golden Knights in OT

Thursday 12:39 GMT

– In San Jose, the game will always be remembered as the Pavelski Payback for the four goals scored on one power play after the Sharks’ captain was knocked out cold, turning around a wild Game 7 that finally ended in overtime.

In Las Vegas, the Golden Knights will always lament the call that they believe was excessive and cost them a chance to advance to the second round. The Sharks responded to the bloody injury to captain Joe Pavelski by scoring four goals on the ensuing power play and then bounced back after allowing the game-tying goal in the final minute of regulation to beat Vegas 5-4 on Barclay Goodrow’s goal 18:19 into overtime on Tuesday night.

Thursday 21:51 GMT

A toxic mixture of state and societal persecution has intensified the worldwide persecution of Christians, especially in Asia.

"But it doesn't help persecuted Christians if we in Germany, too, now only discuss how big the persecution of Christians is and who are the most persecuted. There is persecution of Christians, but the crucial thing then is to look for solutions to fight the causes of this persecution."

Baltimore's acting mayor says he 'would hate to see' embattled mayor return after book scandals

Thursday 09:54 GMT

Acting Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young admitted he “would hate to see” embattled Mayor Catherine Pugh return to work after she received $500,000 from the University of Maryland Medical System in what critics have called a “self-dealing” book sale.

BALTIMORE MAYOR CATHERINE PUGH TAKES INDEFINITE LEAVE OF ABSENCE AMID BOOK CONTROVERSY. “I would hate to see it,” Young said during an interview with Baltimore's WYPR-FM radio, though he stopped short of calling for the scandal-ridden mayor to resign. The scandals stem from word that health care firm Kaiser Permanente paid $114,000 for roughly 20,000 copies of Pugh's self-published “Healthy Holly” children's book series between 2015 and 2018, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Pavlich on Kamala Harris’ gun control push: ‘She’s going after the Second Amendment rights of everyday Americans’

Thursday 17:16 GMT

Katie Pavlich has weighed in on Sen. Kamala Harris’ pledge that, if elected president, she will sign a series of executive orders on gun control if Congress fails to pass comprehensive legislation in her first 100 days in the Oval Office.

She was more willing to convict gun owners in saying ‘you don't have the courage to actually pass gun safety laws,’ when the fact is, that it’s actually pro-gun groups and regular everyday Americans who have been at the forefront of making sure that felons don't have guns, putting safety into their communities through education in different programs, training programs for children, to make sure that they're not around guns.”. Pavlich added: “So when she’s proposing universal background checks, what she’s really doing is saying, that if you're a father who wants to pass down a gun to your son you can't do that unless you go through some kind of bureaucratic process or get a license to do so from the federal government." KAMALA HARRIS ADMITS 'UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES' IN ANTI-TRUANCY LAW WHILE SHE WAS CALIFORNIA AG. "And when she talks about gun safety laws, she’s really talking about a ban on assault weapons, which, if you look at the data, according to the Clinton Justice Department, that didn't actually have an effect on crime, and the majority of crimes in this country that are committed with guns are committed with handguns.
