An official in the French interior ministry said saving the building 'is not certain' after the spire and part of the roof collapsed earlier this evening - adding that it may not be possible to stop the blaze consuming yet more of the structure. A spokesman for the cathedral said the entire wooden frame of the cathedral would likely come down, and that the vault of the edifice could be threatened, too. 'Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,' Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot said. The 12th-century cathedral is home to incalculable works of art and is one of the world's most famous tourist attractions.

Catholic Churches Are Being Desecrated Across France - and Officials Don't Know Why

Catholic Churches Are Being Desecrated Across France - and Officials Don't Know Why | 21 March 2019 | France has seen a spate of attacks against Catholic churches since the start of the year, vandalism that has included arson and desecration. Vandals have smashed statues, knocked down tabernacles, scattered or destroyed the Eucharist and torn down crosses, sparking fears of a rise in anti-Catholic sentiment in the country. Last Sunday, the historic Church of St. Sulpice in Paris was set on fire just after midday mass on Sunday, Le Parisien reported, although no one was injured. Police are still investigating the attack, which firefighters have confidently attributed to arson. Built in the 17th century, St. Sulpice houses three works by the Romantic painter Eugene de la Croix, and was used in the movie adaptation of The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown.

Letters support claim Assange would not face death penalty

Letters support claim Assange would not face death penalty --UK foreign secretaries wrote to assure Ecuador president over WikiLeaks founder's extradition | 15 April 2019 | Ecuador's president, Lenín Moreno, was assured by two British foreign secretaries that Julian Assange would not be extradited to a country where he could face the death penalty, according to letters seen by the Guardian. Letters signed by the foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, and his predecessor Boris Johnson, dated 7 March 2018 and 10 August 2018 respectively, confirm a person cannot be extradited if they could face the death penalty, according to British legislation. The letters appear to back up Moreno’s claim that he had written undertakings from Britain that Assange’s fundamental rights would be respected in his first interview with English-speaking media since the WikiLeaks founder was ejected from the embassy.

Ohio's governor signs 'heartbeat' abortion bill into law | 11 April 2019 | Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on Thursday wasted little time signing what became one of the strictest anti-abortion laws in the nation. Even before the Republican governor put ink to paper, the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio announced it will file a court challenge to prevent the law from going into effect as scheduled in 90 days. On Wednesday, the House and Senate, solely with Republican votes, passed the latest version of the so-called "Heartbeat Bill," which would all but ban an abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Rising Buttigieg formally launches presidential campaign | 14 April 2019 | Surging in early primary polls, Democrat Pete Buttigieg officially kicked off his presidential bid on Sunday, starting a new phase of the campaign as one of the main candidates to watch just three months after he launched an exploratory committee to little fanfare.

Brussels Becomes First Major City to Halt 5G Due to Health Effects

Brussels Becomes First Major City to Halt 5G Due to Health Effects | 31 March 2019 | Great news. A Belgian government minister has announced that Brussels is halting its 5G plans -- at least for now -- due to concerns about health effects. The statement was made by Céline Fremault, the Minister of the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region, responsible for Housing, Quality of Life, Environment and Energy [from an interview last Friday, with L'Echo]. Ms. Fremault accurately identified that a 5G pilot project is not compatible with Belgian radiation safety standards (9 V/m, or 95 mW/m2 according to this online converter), and stated that she does not intend to make an exception. (In the Building Biology guidelines, the threshold for extreme concern is 1 mW/m2. However, many government agencies still only consider thermal effects, instead of the cumulative body of thousands of peer-reviewed scientific studies.)

South Korea wins WTO appeal on Fukushima seafood ban

South Korea wins WTO appeal on Fukushima seafood ban | 12 April 2019 | The World Trade Organization has upheld South Korean's ban on seafood from areas affected by Japan's 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, overturning a lower panel's ruling last year. The Appellate Body on Thursday reversed the February 2018 decision deeming the restrictions to "arbitrarily and unjustifiably discriminate against Japanese products." Appeals rulings are final once formally adopted. South Korea banned seafood imports from eight Japanese prefectures after the March 2011 disaster, including Fukushima and Iwate, over radiation concerns.

The Assembly's Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 on Tuesday to shelve the bill, effectively quashing its chances of going to the floor, the Post-Standard reported. The decision came after committee chair Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan, and Speaker Carl Heastie said $27 million from the state's budget would go towards supporting the Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act, which allows illegal immigrants to qualify for state aid for higher education, Newsweek reported.

Trump says he is considering putting migrants in sanctuary cities

Trump says he is considering putting migrants in sanctuary cities | 12 April 2019 | President Trump said Friday his administration is "giving strong considerations" to a controversial plan that would release migrants into so-called sanctuary cities, even though officials said the idea was never seriously considered. In a pair of tweets, Trump accused Democrats of being "unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws" and suggested they should feel the consequences of what he has called the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. "We can give them an unlimited supply [of migrants] and let's see if they’re so happy," Trump said later Friday at a White House event where he doubled down on the idea. "They say 'we have open arms.' They're always saying they have open arms. Let's see if they have open arms."

Prosecutors allege that Avenatti stole millions of dollars from his clients. Those clients include "Client 1," a man who is paraplegic and who won a $4 million settlement from Los Angeles County. Prosecutors allege Avenatti drained money from the man's trust account and used the money to finance a coffee business and pay other expenses. "More than four years later, Client 1 is still waiting to receive his portion of the settlement," U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said at a news conference in Los Angeles.

In 2012, scientists counted only 47 individual bees spotted within six sites...In late March, the Center for Biological Diversity filed for endangered Species status for the Gulf Coast solitary bee with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Representatives of the Center for Biological Diversity say if current trends continue, it won't be long before the bee is extinct.

On US-Mexico border, militia vow to patrol until 'wall is up' | 10 April 2019 | In the southeasternmost pocket of the US state of New Mexico, with El Paso, Texas, to the east and Mexico a stone's throw south, there is a small camp: a few tents and a weathered trailer. It is home to the half dozen or so members of the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP) -- a small but well-armed militia...And until the wall is built, the UCP insist they will be there. "We're here to assist the border patrol because they are so short handed," the group's leader, 70-year-old "Striker," told AFP. "We have a good work rapport with them," he said. "Our goal was to be here until we're not needed. And when we're not needed is when that wall is up."

Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked's Hayamin Hehadash, as well as the far-right Zehut party led by Moshe Feiglin and Orly Levi-Abekasis' Gesher, did not make it past the electoral threshold. Turnout has been historically low in the Arab community, according to pollsters.
