New generation of Cypriots seek to end island’s division in Nicosia’s ‘dead zone’

Monday 08:03 GMT

Spyrou may cross from a checkpoint in the south, Ruzgar may arrive from a checkpoint in the north, but when they meet in the buffer zone on the home’s first floor, facing each other from opposite sides of a desk, they are Cypriots first and foremost.

In that space of barbed wire, sandbags and guard posts, there is no place that conjures division more than the Ledra Palace hotel. What was once a magnet for Hollywood stars, the go-to establishment for Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, famed as much for its ballroom as its invention of the brandy sour, has come to symbolise the failure of countless peace envoys, diplomats and politicians to reunite Europe’s last divided capital.

Here’s what you need to know about CUSMA and digital trade

Monday 14:29 GMT

Google is praising the internet trade provisions in the new North American trade pact as a “framework for the digital age.”

In contrast, the new [Canada-U.S.-Mexico-Agreement (CUSMA)] includes a comprehensive set of digital trade provisions that keep the internet open, and protect the businesses and consumers that rely on it,” the statement read, bringing digital trade back into the spotlight. While it’s true that the CUSMA’s predecessor, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), did not discuss e-commerce, there have been mixed reactions about the effectiveness of the CUSMA’s (known as the USMCA in the U.S.) digital trade provisions, outlined in Chapter 19 of the document.

Not only science, but religions and esoterics are intensively concerned with the described experiences, which can vary greatly depending on cultural or regional interpretation.

This is true for the human body, which consists of billions and billions of cells that divide every day and thus ensure growth. Living organisms have a very effective method of destroying superfluous or potentially dangerous cells such as viruses or cancer cells: programmed cell death.

Thursday 20:00 GMT

Trump administration to allow U.S. lawsuits over properties seized by Castro’s Cuba. U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration broke with yet another diplomatic norm on Monday by refusing to suspend a key clause in the Helms-Burton Act, part of the U.S. trade embargo on Cuba, which allows Americans to sue companies operating or profiting from confiscated property.

‘I’m having a good day,’ Trump says following release of redacted Mueller report

Today 12:40 GMT

U.S. President Donald Trump said he was “having a good day” on Thursday, following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, adding: “It’s called no collusion, no obstruction.” “There never was, by the way, and there never will be,” he said while at a Wounded Warriors event as the report was published online and submitted to Congress.

Mueller said there was “some evidence” suggesting Trump knew about former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s controversial calls with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office, but evidence was “inconclusive” and could not be used to establish intent to obstruct. Despite this, Trump’s legal team also reacted to the release by saying it is a “victory for the president.”
