South Africa summoned Australia's envoy to Pretoria Thursday to explain comments by a Canberra minister who suggested "persecuted" white farmers in the country should be offered fast-tracked humanitarian visas. Australia's Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton, who has drawn criticism for cracking down on asylum seekers from Asia and the Middle East, said white farmers could be admitted as refugees. Dutton made the offer in response to Pretoria's vow to enact land "expropriation without compensation" to redress land confiscations of the colonial and apartheid era.

Amazon is selling a pair of true wireless earbuds for just $33

Macworld - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 10:48

Updated 8:15 p.m.: These earbuds are sold out on Amazon.com.

Thanks to Apple's AirPods, wireless earbuds are fast becoming one of the hottest mobile accessories on the market—but they're not cheap. At least not usually.

If you're itching to try out a pair but don't have $159 to blow, Amazon is selling the Photive TWS-01 Bluetooth-enabled wireless earbuds, which come with their own charging case, for just $33, or about 40 percent off their average selling price. That's especially low when you consider how expensive most true wireless earbuds can be. Our top-rated picks fall anywhere from $100 to more than $300, though many of those have features that you won't get with the Photive TWS-01, such as noise cancellation and AI voice control.

European allies boost defense spending, most still miss NATO's U.S.-backed goal

Top Stories - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 09:16

By Robin Emmott BRUSSELS (Reuters) - NATO's European allies spent more on defense for the third year running in 2017 but their outlays failed to lift more countries above a target sought by the United States. U.S. President Donald Trump has demanded allies dedicate 2 percent of national economic output on defense every year and has sought to keep up the pressure by calling that target, agreed at a NATO summit in 2014, a "bare minimum." NATO's 2017 annual report showed Estonia, Greece, Poland and Britain met the 2 percent goal, the same group as in 2016, although alliance officials say Latvia, Lithuania and Romania will join them in 2018. NATO has 29 member states in total.
