There’s absolutely no doubt coronavirus is big news – at least 170 dead, nearly 8,000 reported cases and two of those in the UK.
5 Massive Things That Happened This Week That Arent Coronavirus Or Brexit
And then there’s Brexit, which is so big and talked about we’re just going to skip right ahead.
It is therefore our sad duty to inform you that while everyone was concentrating on these two things, lots of other very important and possibly depressing things happened this week.
So before we get to that and to remind you the world can still be a good place, here’s a beaver racing home with a haul of carrots.家族のためにニンジンを運ぶ父フタバ。器用だ😃 pic.twitter.com/XJYebvrCWK— ちまちゃん (@nn930310) January 25, 2020OK, fun’s over – now for the serious stuff.The Israel-Palestine dealThis week Donald Trump unveiled his long-awaited plan to bring some peace to the Middle East, specifically between Israel and Palestine.
But the fact he presented it to a pro-Israel audience at the White House with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu by his side was a bit of a giveaway. This is what a future State of Palestine can look like, with a capital in parts of East Jerusalem. pic.twitter.com/39vw3pPrAL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2020Trump declared it a “win-win” opportunity for both Israel and the Palestinians but it is mostly Israel that wins.
It was branded “insulting”, “shameful” and “a disgrace” by Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, PA Media reports.
At refugee camps across the country, Palestinians staged strikes, protests and sit-ins a day after Trump revealed the long-awaited details of the plan.
It was denounced as ridiculously lopsided, with Palestinians saying it gives them no rights.
It calls for the eventual creation of a Palestinian state, but falls far short of minimal Palestinian demands and would leave sizeable chunks of the occupied West Bank in Israeli hands. 
Sawsan Warde, a middle-aged Palestinian woman at the crowded Bourj al-Barajneh camp in the Lebanese capital Beirut, said: “Trump’s words mean nothing to us.
“This isn’t his land for him to bargain or sell or give to someone else,.
“He can give the Jewish people or Netanyahu a part of his land but Palestine is for us. It was, it is and will always be ours.”The impeachment and the kingDonald Trump is not a king – this much is fact. But an argument put forward by his lawyer during impeachment hearings this week has been accused of making him just that.
To briefly refresh your memory, Trump was impeached last month on charges that he abused his power by withholding military aid to Ukraine until they investigated his political rival, Joe Biden.
Republicans and Democrats are currently arguing over whether or not this alleged “quid pro quo” – although not an actual crime – is an abuse of power worthy of being stripped of office.
Famed legal mind Alan Dershowitz said in his defence on Wednesday: “If a president did something that he believes will help him get elected, in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment.”
Taken to its logical conclusion, this argument essentially means a president can do absolutely anything that they personally decide is in the public interest.
And seeing as we’re talking a president who once floated the idea of building a moat and filling it with alligators to keep migrants out of the US, this is a rather worrying thought to say the least.Another wildfire in AustraliaThe Australian capital region has declared a state of emergency because of an out-of-control forest fire burning erratically to its south.
It is the first fire emergency for the Australian Capital Territory since 2003 when wildfires killed four people and destroyed almost 500 homes in a day.The threat is posed by a blaze on Canberra’s southern fringe that has razed more than 53,000 acres since it was sparked by heat from a military helicopter landing light on Monday, the Emergency Services Agency said.The humanitarian crisis in IdlibAn assault on rebel-held northwest Syria by government forces has pushed some 700,000 people to flee toward the Turkish border and raised the spectre of an international crisis, US special envoy for Syria James Jeffrey said on Thursday.
Backed by Russian air power, government forces have advanced on Idlib at a rapid clip since last week, taking back dozens of towns and upending a region where millions have taken refuge since the start of Syria’s nearly nine-year war.This month #Syria#Idlib: 100s of thousands flee, camps are mud pits where sewage water edges against the tents, temps are freezing, not enough aid, regime and Russian air strikes squeezing the population. No where left to run. Our report: pic.twitter.com/ZjytLc7F6e— Arwa Damon (@arwaCNN) January 30, 2020The campaign has ratcheted up tensions between Moscow and Ankara. Turkey fears a fresh wave of migrants piling across its border and has a dozen observation posts in Idlib, part of a de-escalation agreement it says Russia is now violating.And to finish...No, it’s not another otter but a rather baffling tweet from a police force in the United States. See if you can spot the problem...Large boulder the size of a small boulder is completely blocking east-bound lane Highway 145 mm78 at Silverpick Rd.

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
