Bulgaria opposes UN pact for safe and orderly migration

Bulgaria will not sign a UN pact to promote safe and orderly migration, a ruling party official said on Monday, placing the country in the ranks of several other EU states that do not back the deal. "The position of the Bulgarian government will be not to join the United Nations' global pact on migration," said Tsvetan Tsvetanov, deputy leader of the main ruling center-right GERB party. Its coalition partner, the United Patriots, has also come out against the non-binding pact, calling it a threat to national interests. The Bulgarian parliament is to debate the pact on Wednesday. Bulgaria has...

Separatist leaders voted back in disputed east Ukraine election

The interim leaders of the self-proclaimed "People's Republics" of Luhansk and Donetsk in Ukraine's eastern Donbass region were confirmed in office as expected in a poll on Sunday that has been condemned by Kyiv and the West. The two leaders, Denis Pushilin (top photo) in Donetsk and Leonid Pasechnik in Luhansk, won the votes with 61 and 68 percent respectively, local election officials said on Monday.. Both men have called for closer ties with Russia, and analysts say the poll will cement Moscow's hold on the disputed regions, which have broken away from the central Ukrainian government in Kyiv amid...

Healing the ozone layer: A ray of hope for planet Earth?

Finally, some good environment news: The Earth's protective ozone layer has been healing at a rate of around 2 percent since 2000, and could be completely healed by the middle of the century. That's according to a United Nations report that praised the rate of success, which it attributed to the historic 1987 Montreal Protocol's ban on chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and other ozone-depleting substances. If the current reductions in ozone-depleting emissions are sustained, the Northern Hemisphere could be healed by the 2030s and the Southern Hemisphere healed by the 2050s, the report detailed. The hole above Antarctica, which was once as...

Artificial intelligence in medicine: The computer knows what you need

Everybody makes mistakes. But in some work environments, like medicine, mistakes can be deadly. That's why more and more medical personnel are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help reduce the rate of error. Although, many experienced doctors are skeptical about using AI in medicine, researchers around the globe are working on new ways to apply it. The options are diverse — and in some cases rather peculiar. Read more: Artificial intelligence, or the end of the world as we know it The AI technology is a lot more precise than the human nose in analyzing a person's breath Smelling...

Is the EU kowtowing to the Kremlin on Magnitsky sanctions?

Bill Browder lists a handful of events he believes should amount to more than enough reasons for the European Union to crack down on Kremlin abuse of human rights: the Skripal case, the downing of MH17, Oleg Sentsov's imprisonment, the annexation of Crimea. "To get anything to happen in the EU," Browder said drily, "requires power and leverage and force and shame." Browder is personally trying to provide, at the very least, the shame. Browder's Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky was beaten to death in 2009 in a Moscow prison where he was incarcerated while investigating authorities' involvement in a €202...

Iconic Italian composer Ennio Morricone at 90

Hollywood tried to lure him to the US countless times. He was even offered a mansion once, entirely for free — but Ennio Morricone declined. He recently admitted he doesn't speak English, and felt that at his age, it was too late to learn. Anyway, he said, he is a Roman at heart. Ennio Morricone was born born on November 10, 1928, in the Italian capital. His father Mario, a trumpet player,  realized early on that his son was also musically talented. Ennio started composing music at age six, and was enrolled at the conservatory when he was 12. He...

My Europe: Why Eastern Europeans like Donald Trump

When US President Donald Trump says something, it's often shocking and vulgar. It's also true, according to conservative US commentator Tucker Carlson. He experienced this personally when he made a derogatory remark about Trump's hair. Trump retorted that Carlson's hair was indeed better, but that he, Trump, "got more pussy." How on earth, thought Carlson, can anyone say such a thing? But he also had to admit that Trump was right. We eastern Europeans don't think twice about saying such things, and our politicians can also be pretty uncouth. Take Czech President Milos Zeman, for example. The man who swore...

ASEAN gathers in shadow of US-China trade war

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday called for open markets and greater integration in Southeast Asia at a time when international cooperation is under threat. Lee made the comments at a business forum in the city-state ahead of meetings this week of the ten-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and other regional partners. Read more: US-China trade row: Should Americans worry? "ASEAN has great potential, but fully realizing it depends on whether we choose to become more integrated, and work resolutely towards this goal in a world where multilateralism is fraying under political pressures," Lee said.

Finland to probe reports of Russia disrupting GPS during NATO drill

Pilots in Finland and Norway lost GPS navigation signals during recent NATO's  large-scale Trident Juncture exercise near Russia's western border. Speaking to Finland's public broadcaster Yle on Sunday, Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila said that Moscow was likely to blame for the jamming. "Technology-wise, it's relatively easy to disturb a radio signal, and it's possible that Russia was behind it," he was quoted as saying. Sipila is known for often piloting his private jet himself for official trips "We will investigate, and then we will respond," he added. "This is not a joke, it threatened the air security of ordinary...

Stingy, solid Leipzig show up clueless, shapeless Leverkusen

As he revelled in a fifth consecutive Bundesliga clean sheet, Peter Gulacsi noted that this one had come easier than most.  "It was a funny game in my eyes, as I didn't really have much to do for large parts," the Hungarian keeper said as Leipzig extended their unbeaten run to 10 league games. In fact, Gulasci didn't make a save until he leapt to his left in the 77th minute to keep out a freekick from substitute Leon Bailey. The fact that someone as gifted as Bailey started on the bench hints at Leverkusen's enviable attacking options, even if...

Energetic, youthful and vibrant are just a few of the words you can use to describe Borussia Dortmund, after another statement win in what has been a season of statement wins.
