Friday 06:59 GMT

Under “Ad Settings,” users can reject certain invasive practices from Facebook, refusing to allow it to show ads based on data from partners, ads based on your activity on other Facebook products (like Instagram, for example), and ads based on your “social actions,” such as liking a page.

The United Nation's anti-Israel bias is undeniable -- Let's stop pretending otherwise

Friday 20:01 GMT

On Dec. 6, 2018 the United Nations General Assembly failed to pass a resolution condemning Hamas, the U.S.-designated terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip.

For example, The Washington Post’s report on the General Assembly vote described the U.N’s “anti-Israel bias” as merely “perceived.” And The Post, among other newspapers, has often minimized the U.N.’s institutional mistreatment of Israel by presenting it as merely a claim by “Israel and its supporters.”

ECB to stop its printing presses even as concerns grow

Friday 08:05 GMT

With growth slowing, budgetary tensions in France and Italy, a political deadlock over Brexit and a global trade war still looming large, ECB chief Mario Draghi will be keen to emphasize other forms of support.

Saturday 05:09 GMT

When then Chiefs went on another methodical scoring drive to take a 28-14 lead with just over 8 minutes left in the game, Williams helped the Chargers head the other way for another answering touchdown to stay in the game.

The Chiefs forced the Chargers to burn two timeouts on their last drive, but Mahomes was sacked by Isaac Rochell and Kansas City had to punt. Hyped by the return of star safety Eric Berry, it looked for a while as if the Chiefs would simply resume their vexation of Rivers at Arrowhead Stadium.

More Brexit assurances possible, says May

Saturday 13:35 GMT

Theresa May has said it is still possible to get the assurances MPs need to back her Brexit deal despite EU leaders ruling out any renegotiation.

Labour's Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said it was now clear that Mrs May would not get any "meaningful changes to her Brexit deal" and she should now push ahead with the Commons vote on it next week. And Conservative Brexiteer Mark Francois told the BBC: "It is as plain as a pikestaff that this will never get through the House of Commons... the prime minister, I'm afraid, is completely boxed in."

Saturday 19:04 GMT

Daniel Boffey , Dan Sabbagh and Jennifer Rankin in Brussels and Heather Stewart in London. Theresa May has come home from Brussels empty-handed and without hope of further negotiations over the Irish backstop, with the failure to achieve any kind of breakthrough leaving her brutally exposed.
