Xi warns Taiwan will face 'punishment of history' for separatism
Posted 2 hours 49 minutes ago

By Philip Wen and Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping told self-ruled Taiwan on Tuesday that it would face the "punishment of history" for any attempt at separatism, offering his strongest warning yet to the island claimed by China as its sacred territory. The government of Taiwan, one of China's most sensitive issues and a potentially dangerous military flashpoint, responded that it hoped China could "break free" of the old clichés of threats and force. China's hostility towards Taiwan has risen since the 2016 election of President Tsai Ing-wen, a member of the island's pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party.


U.S. high court skeptical toward California law on anti-abortion centers
Posted 3 hours 7 minutes ago

A California law that requires Christian-based facilities that steer pregnant women away from abortion to post notices about the availability of state-subsidized abortions ran into trouble at the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, with justices on the right and left indicating it may violate free speech rights. Various justices voiced concern that the Democratic-backed 2015 law was crafted to take aim at a specific viewpoint -- opposition to abortion -- held by these non-profit facilities called crisis pregnancy centers. Conservative justices sharply questioned the lawyer representing California, and even two liberal justices expressed unease with parts of the law during an hour-long argument in an appeal by these facilities of a lower court ruling upholding the statute.

Posted 4 hours 16 minutes ago

Google on Tuesday bought up New York's Chelsea Market for $2.4 billion, finalizing its acquisition of the emblematic retail and food hall that stands opposite the internet giant's current headquarters in the city. Google had already paid $1.7 billion for the building facing the market in 2010, which has 275,000 square metres of office floorspace. It already has offices in the Chelsea Market building -- built in 1913 by architect Albert G. Zimmerman as a factory for the Nabisco biscuit company -- which serve as offices for the Google-owned online company Youtube.

Vehicle used to pick up Yulia Skripal from airport seized for forensic tests
Posted 1 day 8 hours 30 minutes ago

The vehicle used to pick up Yulia Skripal from Heathrow when she arrived in the UK from Moscow has been seized by the military for forensic testing. The development suggests that detectives believe the Novichok nerve agent used to poison both the 33-year-old and her father, Russian spy Sergei Skripal, a fortnight ago may have been unwittingly carried over by her from Russia the previous day. Barely 24 hours later, the pair were found on a bench in the centre of Salisbury in a catatonic state. Miss Skripal was picked up from the airport on Saturday March 3 by Ross Cassidy, one of Col Skripal's closest friends, who drove her back to her father's house in Salisbury. Intelligence officers have suggested that the toxin may have been hidden in her luggage, either impregnated in an item of clothing or cosmetics or else in a gift, meaning Miss Skripal was deliberately targeted to get at her father. Mr Cassidy confirmed when contacted by The Telegraph that his pick-up truck had been seized at the concrete plant in Amesbury where he works. Ross Cassidy, a close friend of Sergei Skripal, who is understood to have picked Yulia Skripal up from Heathrow Meanwhile, police investigating the murder of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov said they had found no evidence of forced entry into his home. The 68-year-old was found apparently strangled at his terraced house in Clarence Avenue, New Malden on March 12,  prompting fears that a new Moscow-sponsored attack had been carried out on UK soil. The former Aeroflot deputy director, a fierce critic of Vladimir Putin, was granted asylum in the UK after fleeing Russia in 2006.  His death was initially treated as unexplained but four days later, following a post-mortem examination, Scotland Yard launched a murder inquiry. Mr Glushkov, who was close friends with Putin critic Boris Berezovsky, was wanted over fraud allegations in his native Russia. He was also outspoken after Mr Berezovsky died in 2013, refusing to accept that his friend had taken his own life. Sergei Skripal with his daughter Yulia Credit: Social media Counter-terrorism police are leading the investigation into Mr Glushkov's death but have stressed that there is no evidence to link it with the attempted murder of Col Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury. On Monday officers were carrying out house-to-house inquiries near his Clarence Avenue home and appealing for witnesses to come forward. Metropolitan Police Commander Clarke Jarrett said: "I would urge anybody who may have information to get in touch if they have not already done so. We will have officers in Mr Glushkov's local neighbourhood today so please come and speak to us if you think you may have seen or heard anything suspicious last Sunday or Monday. "The investigation is progressing; we have taken a number of statements and have over 400 exhibits which are being processed. We have found no sign of forced entry thus far, but the forensic examination at Mr Glushkov's home continues and we expect to be there for some time. "I must stress that there is nothing we have found in our investigation so far to suggest any link to the attempted murders in Salisbury and I would like to reassure the public in New Malden that there are no wider public health concerns in relation to this investigation." Officers at the cordon near the tent covering the bench where Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found poisoned Credit: REUTERS/Peter Nicholls The bodies of Russian dissidents who have died in the UK are likely to be exhumed in the wake of Boris Johnson's disclosure that the Kremlin has spent a decade developing nerve agents for assassination purposes. The remains of at least two Russians who died suddenly and mysteriously are expected to be re-examined. Neither was tested for nerve agent poisoning after their deaths. Yesterday, the Foreign Secretary accused Putin's regime of breaking international law in developing Novichok for use by hit squads. Today, inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will visit the defence laboratory at Porton Down to collect nerve agent samples used in the attack for independent testing. The tests are expected to last at least two weeks. Mr Johnson said the Government had proof that Novichok was being stockpiled by Russia. The Skripals remain in a critical and life threatening condition.


Collector who bought Jesse James picture for just £7 on eBay told it could be worth £2 million
Posted 1 day 9 hours 23 minutes ago

A collector has hit the jackpot after being told that an old photograph he picked up on eBay for just £7 was a genuine portrait of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James, worth up to £2 million. Justin Whiting, 45, bought the photograph in July 2017 and immediately tracked down Will Dunniway, a 19th century photography expert from California. He was astonished when forensic experts confirmed his picture of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James was genuine and could sell for six figures. Single Justin, from Spalding, Lincs., said: "Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few quid, like other people would buy a lottery ticket. "I noticed the picture for sale - it was ten dollars. It was a bit blurry on the site but when I got it, it was a lot clearer. "I thought to myself: 'Gee wizz, this could be a real photo!' I've been obsessed with American outlaws for years and read lots of books and study their faces. Justin Whiting's photo of Jesse James (right) and an existing picture of the outlaw at a similar age Credit: Justin Whiting / "The picture was identical to the one in my book, except it was full length. All my friends said it was the same but I knew I needed to contact experts. "I didn't dare to believe they would say it was genuine and worth at least two million." Expert Mr Dunniway confirmed the photograph was a genuine portrait of bank robber Jesse taken when the babyfaced outlaw was just 14. His report said: "The age of this image was about 1861-2 and is correct in every way to this period. "When it is compared to the much used comparison image I believe it was taken on the same day by the same photographer. "It is very evident by the face, hair cut, jacket, shirt and tie that this is the same image of Jesse James at 14 years old. One of the originals." The eBay listing from which Justin Whiting picked up an old photo  Credit: Justin Whiting / Justin then sent the 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches Victorian tintype photograph to Los Angeles forensic expert Kent Gibson who has verified evidence for the FBI. Mr Gibson confirmed the image was authentic and said: "All power to Justin. An authentic photograph of outlaw Billy the Kid sold for $5million in 2015 so the sky's the limit. "Jesse James is a very famous outlaw so this is obviously a valuable image." Justin, who has been out of work since 2003 due to back problems, has already been in touch with posh London auction house Christie's and is looking forward to spending his windfall. He said: "I'm definitely selling it. I'll be able to buy my own house and my own car. I can't wait. Good things do happen sometimes." Jesse may have robbed a few banks in his time, but Justin isn't taking any chances with his haul. He said: "I'm being super careful. That photograph is the most valuable thing I've ever had in my possession. It's staying in my friend's safe for now."


Ford teases 700 horsepower 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500
Posted 1 day 10 hours 16 minutes ago

The teaser image Ford has released of a new Mustang Shelby GT500 doesn't give a great deal away about the new hardcore Mustang, but it reassures enthusiasts that the trademark GT500 stripes will definitely be adorning this much-anticipated new model. This is going to be a model for those who find the current Shelby Mustang GT350 just a little too tame, and that's because this one is set to boast somewhere in the region of 700 horsepower. The Blue Oval probably had to come up with something like this to finally deliver an answer to the likes of the 707 horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and the 755 horsepower Corvette ZR1.
