But in a statement on Sunday, Mr Bannon called the claim "inaccurate".

CDC schedules briefing on nuclear war preparation

CDC schedules briefing on nuclear war preparation | 06 Jan 2018 | The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is holding a Jan. 16 briefing to explain how the public can prepare for nuclear war. "While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps," a notice on the CDC's website states. Despite the fear surrounding such an event, planning and preparation can lessen deaths and illness. For instance, most people don't realize that sheltering in place for at least 24 hours is crucial to saving lives and reducing exposure to radiation. While federal, state, and local agencies will lead the immediate response efforts, public health will play a key role in responding." The session will include information on what public health programs are doing at the federal, state, and local level to prepare for a nuclear detonation, according to the announcement.

"The investigation of Mr. Manafort is completely unmoored from the Special Counsel's original jurisdiction to investigate 'any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump,'" the complaint reads. "It has instead focused on unrelated, decade-old business dealings -- specifically, Ukraine political campaign consulting activities of Mr. Manafort."

Swedish church pushes for neutral gender reference to Jesus

Swedish church pushes for neutral gender reference to Jesus | 30 Dec 2017 | A church in a Swedish city has defended its choice of gender-neutral pronoun 'hen' in reference to Jesus in an advertisement. The church insists the word gives "new perspective." In November, the largest religious institution in the country, the Church of Sweden, advised its clergy to avoid terms like 'Lord' and 'He' in worship services in order to not highlight that God is male, in the new version of a handbook on how to conduct services. The move has triggered a backlash, with critics saying the change undermines the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity and politicizes faith.
