Mueller’s filing Wednesday was a response to an earlier motion by former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, as Buzzfeed News reporter Zoe Tillman reported via Twitter. Papadopolous pled guilty last year to lying to the FBI in connection with the Russia investigation and is scheduled to start serving a 14-day sentence on Monday, November 26.

Macworld - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 12:12

Just in time for its 4-day holiday sales event, Apple is running a new ad that serves up five reasons why the iPad Pro can be your next computer. In true Apple fashion, it’s a fun, hip, flashy commercial that will no doubt sway a few people to plunk down upwards of a thousand bucks on a new iPad.

But for most of them, they’re going to need a Mac too. Never mind the semantics of the difference between computer and PC, but what Apple really means is that the iPad is a fine replacement for a Mac if you only use it for basic tasks such as email and web browsing. Because it definitely can’t replace your Mac for real work.

Rudy Giuliani Admits Trump Will Stonewall Mueller’s Obstruction Of Justice Questions

Top Stories - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 10:14

Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani says that the president will not answer any further questions from FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, and in particular, he won’t answer any questions about obstruction of justice, in an exclusive interview with Axios. Since the beginning, Trump has been widely critical of the Mueller probe and has even been accused of trying to obstruct it via various staff moves. Similarly, his legal team, of which Giuliani is a part, has also attempted to stall the probe and has publicly questioned such matters as whether or not a sitting president can be subpoenaed or indicted – questions whose answers remain an unanswered legal conundrum.

Interpol Picks Korean as New President in Snap Election, Crushing Russian Hopes

Kim was selected Wednesday morning in a snap election organized at Interpol’s general assembly in Dubai following the arrest in China of former president Meng Hongwei last month. Interpol didn’t disclose on its website the margin of victory for the South Korean in the election, which was organized on a one country-one vote basis. The election had become deeply political in recent days as U.S. and other western countries warned that if elected, Prokopchuk, as a high-ranking police official in Russia, could abuse Interpol protocols to harass political opponents of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

France advised to change heritage law to allow return of African art to former colonies

Top Stories - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 09:54

Franceshould change heritage law to facilitate the return of thousands of African artworks pillaged or bought during the colonial era, a government-appointed report is to advise President Emmanuel Macron. If approved, it would amount to a radical policy shift that could pile pressure on Britain and other ex-colonial powers to hand back long-held artifacts to their countries of origin. The report follows a groundswell of calls to return cultural treasures in Africa, amid estimations that up to 90 per cent of its cultural heritage is in foreign hands. France alone possesses around 90,000 African artworks, some 70,000 of which are at Paris' Quai Branly museum, founded by ex-president Jacques Chirac, a fan of African and Asian art. Currently, French law strictly forbids the government from parting with what amounts to state property, even in clear-cut cases of pillaging. But President Macron signalled he was prepared to consider change in a speech in Burkina Faso last year in which he said:"Africa's heritage cannot just be in European private collections and museums. “Within five years, I want the conditions to be met for the temporary or definitive restitution of African heritage to Africa.” Mr Macron tasked French art historian Benedicte Savoy and Senegalese writer Felwine Sarr to draw up a report on the issue. It is estimated that up to 90 per cent of Africa's cultural treasures are held outside the continent Credit: GERARD JULIEN/AFP Due for release on Friday but leaked to French media on Wednesday, the report suggests amending French law to enable the restitution of cultural works if bilateral accords are struck between France and African states. The change would apply in particular to works held in museums which were "transferred from their original territory during the French colonial period," the report said. "We propose changing heritage laws so that all types of cases can be taken into account, and the criteria of consent can be invoked," Ms Sarr told French daily Libération. The experts said such collections were in effect depriving Africans of their artistic and cultural heritage. Advocates of such restitutions welcomed the report. Marie-Cecile Zinsou, a daughter of Benin's former prime minister and president of the Zinsou Art Foundation in Cotonou said that while it would spark “howls of disapproval” from some quarters in France, notably the far-Right, it could unleash a cultural “shockwave” throughout Europe and Africa. "Today it feels as if we're just a step away from recovering our history and being finally able to share it on the continent,” she told AFP. The UK has resisted numerous and often impassioned calls to return artifacts to their countries of origin, including the Elgin Marbles to Greece and the Benin Bronzes to Nigeria. On Tuesday, the governor of Chile’s Easter Island in the Pacific implored the British Museum to return the Hoa Hakananai'a, one of its most important statues and held for 150 years.
