Time to put our hands together for the Indovians who have stood out the most First off I wouldn't be upset if a certain someone got banned *cough* @timon *cough* for the last week. This guy has gotten nothing but lucky drops ranging from a ranger's hat at only 8 hard clues to a DWH drop at only 81 kc. Up next I want to give a special shoutout to @Tom Delonge for all of his hard work these past few months becoming the first x1 xp rate player to max out! I'm not sure how you have accomplished such a feat without getting bored. All I know is that a huge congrats is due. Hopefully @Izay can pick up the slack and catch up to Tom. With one of the more mundane and boring skills out of the way, by getting 99 Runecrafting on 2x it seems like reaching max will be a breeze. @K B A C is also making some great progress on his x5, knocking out Smithing which IMO is horrible. Way to go!! And just remember everyone, if you are ever wondering what the chances of getting a pet are, just ask on yell and you may get it within 5 minutes like @ahappyman If you haven't already invited your friends to play Indova, now would be the perfect time! Check out the Refer A Friend Event to get a chance to win some juicy rewards! I don't know about you, but an Arcane, Ghrazi rapier, or Dragon war hammer sound like great incentives to have some friends come along. If you have the skills with Microsoft paint head over and compete in the Signature Of The Fortnight and give it your A game. deadlines were extended until February 10th and 11:59 pm for all entries. The theme is free for all so there nothing but artistic freedom for this edition of SOTF.

Always remember to join the Official Indova Discord and look out for events in the #events channel for active events happening in game all the time! PUBG claims Game of the Year in the 2018 Steam Awards For our first one is on one of the very popular games PUBG. Maybe you haven't heard of it but its like a shooter game Kinda like fortnight but with the ability to drive stuff etc. Anyways they won a yearly reward! Lets get right into the article here's what it has to say, " The nominees for the 2018 Steam Awards were announced in December, just ahead of the start of the most recent Steam Winter Sale. Now the results are in, and you'll never guess who won! (It was PUBG.) I said when the categories were announced that they were "more grounded" than in previous years, when we had to grapple with categories like "Mom's Spaghetti" and "Soul of Vitruvius." At the time, that clarity struck me as a plus overall, but in hindsight I realize that it's just kind of boring. "Winner of the 'Whoooaaaaaaa, Dude! 2.0' Award" isn't something that's likely going to boost sales if you splash it across the back of a box, but at least it gets your attention. The 2018 winners are more conventional, but they still represent some great games and studios. The video below, which was re-posted from Steam by GamersPrey, has some cool "thank you" clips from developers, and the full list of winners is just a little further down." Now this article is pretty stand alone explainable. But there is a very interesting video on that you can view showing some good stuff. Just click the link below. [LINK] The Geralt Monster Hunter collaboration will feature a familiar Witcher 3 monster Now for our second article I have an interesting game which is pretty hardcore and fun the game called Monster Hunter. Now I have watched streamers play this game and it seems like its pretty in depth and takes a lot of skill to kill the bosses. But anyways its seems they are getting a new monster! One from the popular game called Witcher 3. Lets get right into the article here's what it has to say, "We already knew that Geralt was going to be part of a Monster Hunter: World collaboration with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and with its console release today, we have more details on what that will actually entail when the event comes to PC 'at a later date.' The crossover event will unlock a new quest line for all players that have reached Hunter Rank 16. The update naturally stars Geralt of Rivia, voiced by the original actor, Doug Cockle. ‘Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest’ will have Geralt tracking down and defeating a powerful force that will be familiar to Witcher 3 players: the Leshen. Apparently, the creature is no pushover but you'll have the White Wolf's weapons and abilities to help you out, including his silver sword and combat magic. Additionally, players will be able to influence the story through the choices they make throughout the quest line. A limited time event; ‘Contract: Woodland Spirit' will also be available for the more seasoned players that have earned Hunter Rank 50 or above. This challenging multiplayer event will test your hunter skills against a much tougher form of the Leshen." Now this article has paragraphs on it so I advise you continue reading it from the link bellow if you have any questions because they answered all of mine after reading the full article. Now I think this game is awesome so but due to my schedule I don't get to game as much as I'd like but hey one day I can play this game fully. Anyways Lets jump to our final Article! [LINK] Tom Hall would love to make a new Commander Keen game Now for our final article is on a new game that came out on the Nintendo Switch called Commander Keen. I haven't heard of this one before but that's mostly because I do not own Switch. Soon though soon I plan to buy one. But Lets get right into the article so we can see what kind of game this is here's what it has to say, "Commander Keen in Keen Dreams released on Nintendo Switch today, which wouldn't be of much interest to us, if it weren't for that fact that it's prompted series co-creator Tom Hall to jump on reddit. Hall, who developed the game alongside John Carmack and John Romero, had some interesting things to say about efforts to develop new Keen games since the series' last installment in 2001. In comments left on this thread, Hall chimes in to say that he'd "love to do a new Keen" but that he doesn't have the rights. The rights lay in the hands of id Software and its parent company Zenimax. "Every letter to them has gotten a form letter response," Hall said, when asked whether he had any contacts. Interestingly, when asked whether John Romero has "any pull with them," Hall replies that he and Brenda Romero had "tried one year" but that they also received a form letter response. Hall did attempt to fund a 2D platformer creation tool called Worlds of Wander back in 2013, which would have come bundled with a "spiritual successor" to Commander Keen, but it didn't reach its target." Now I like the feel of 2D games it reminds me of the old game maple story. Anyways this game seems interesting and it seems like a lot of time went into creating it so we will just have to give it a try and see if we like it. Now this article has a bit more information if you want to read on just click the link below. Now I hope you had a good time with these articles for this edition. As Always I will continue to find interesting and maybe hidden gems in the gaming news. [LINK] Abdurehim Heyit Chinese video 'disproves Uighur musician's death' For our first one I have one on a mysterious musician who was thought to be dead but a video has proved otherwise. Here is what the article has to say, "Chinese state media have released a video appearing to show a Uighur musician previously reported to have died in a detention camp. The video, dated 10 February, features a man said to be Abdurehim Heyit stating that he is in "good health". Turkey earlier called on China to close the camps following reports of his death. Up to a million Uighurs are reportedly being detained. Some Uighurs have questioned the video's authenticity. Nury Turkel, chairman of the US-based Uyghur Human Rights Project, told the BBC that some aspects of the video were "suspicious". The Uighurs are a Muslim Turkic-speaking minority based in the north-western Xinjiang region of China, which has come under intense surveillance by Chinese authorities. Their language is close to Turkish and a significant number of Uighurs have fled to Turkey from China in recent years" Now I have always wondered about how scary China can be if you don't follow its rules but to have people in detention camps seems to be just not humanly. But what can we do when world power has so much control on its people. If you want to watch the video that shows this mans "good health" just click the link below and it will show you a clip. [LINK] Spain Catalonia: Madrid mass protest over talks policy Now for my second article for this edition has to do with some protests in the mass's which have been going on in Spain. Now it seems these protests are because of the government not allowing a certain type of religious activities. Lets get right into the article here's what it has to say, "Tens of thousands gathered in Madrid for a protest by right-wing parties opposed to a Spanish government plan to ease tension in the Catalonia region. The centre-right Popular Party (PP) and Ciudadanos (Citizens) say Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez's plan to appoint an intermediary for talks with separatists amounts to treason. The separatists have rejected the offer - they want a new independence vote. Like the right, the ruling Socialists also oppose Catalan independence. Far-right groups including the Vox party are also present at the protest, held under the slogan "For a united Spain. Elections now!" Now this government seems pretty shady I mean the prime minister to have done acts of treason I don't even know how to be worried about that haha. But hopefully these protests get something good out of there hard effort maybe to make the government understand. Regardless if you want to read more about this article just click the link below since there's still a bit more juicy info that is explained with out making this article to long. [LINK] 'Hitler paintings' fail to sell at auction in Germany Now for our last article we have an interesting topic which has to do with old artifacts which happen to be the famous Hitler Paintings that were found. But It looks like the hatred for this man which there should be has made them worthless. I wouldn't want to spend a dime on something that this cruel man who killed millions of people could have made. Here's what the article has to say, "Five pictures said to have been painted by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler have failed to sell at auction in Germany. Weidler auction house hoped to raise €45,000 (£40,000; $51,000) from the most expensive work. The auction was held in Nuremburg, the German city once notorious for Hitler's mass rallies where leading Nazis were later tried for war crimes. Accusations of forgery marred the auction and city mayor Ulrich Maly described it as being in "bad taste". The sale also included items said to have been owned by the dictator, including a vase and a wicker chair with a swastika on its arm. Under Hitler's rule (1933-45), Nazi Germany began World War II, pursuing a genocidal policy that resulted in the deaths of some six million Jews, and tens of millions of other civilians and combatants. Public displays of Nazi symbols are against the law in Germany - except in some contexts, such as for educational or historical reasons. The auction house got around the law by pixelating the symbols within their catalogue." Now I see there was an issue these could of been forgery but since they seem to come from a Nazi collector who found them they seem to be real but since Germany exiles the acts of any Nazi Symbols in any art its good that these paintings made no money off them. Now I hope you have enjoyed the three interesting articles I found for you for this World News Edition I hope you all have a great two weeks.

Metroid Prime 4 Development Restarts; Retro Studios Takes Over Now Where are my fellow Gamers out there! Oh wait we are on a forum game website haha, Anyways How are you all?! Game News has been waiting to pop out for this edition and I couldn't wait to share it all with you! I know most of my oldie gamers know the name of this one Metriod Prime If you have played the older games or even if you just know it from super smash bros well they are making a new one #4, Lets get right into the article shall we, "Nintendo has provided an update on the state ofmetroid Prime 4. In a video, senior managing executive officer Shinya Takahashi admitted that development of the game thus far hasn't reached the standards the publisher wanted and the project has been rebooted. Additionally, Retro Studios, the Texas-based team that developed the three previous entries in the series, has been brought back to work on the sequel. "Although this is very regrettable we must let you know that the current development progress has not reached the standards we seek in a sequel to Metroid Prime series," Takahashi said. "Nintendo always strives for the highest quality in our games and in our development phase, we challenge ourselves and confront whether the game is living up to that quality on a daily basis. "From this perspective, we have determined that the current development status of [Metroid Prime 4] is very challenged, and we had to make a difficult decision as a development team. We have decided to re-examine the development structure and change it." Takahashi went on to confirm Kensuke Tanabe, producer on the game, will work "in trust and collaboration with the studio that developed the original Metroid Prime series, Retro Studios ... and restart development from the beginning." This collaboration, he said, will allow Nintendo to make a sequel that will meet the expectations of fans." Well for me this is huge I love The hottie Samus From Metriod Just Mmm can't wait for this game and bad ass game play to come out. I remember when i was like 12 maybe younger playing the oldie game on Game Cube. I think it was on Game Cube anyways so it was super fun so there is much more to this game article than I can show you here so please do click the link below so you can read more there is also a sneak peek dev video on this link so yeah Click Below. LINK Kingdom Hearts 3 Reviews Roundup Now for our second article I have a very big game that everyone and there son has been waiting for or daughter to say everyone has been wanting this to come out but no one knew when. Kingdom Hearts 3?! Its release date is soon and up and coming this year! I am so excited to share this with you and the juicy reviews that the gaming websites have wanted to say lets get right into the article, "Kingdom Hearts 3" is one of the most anticipated games of the year. Fans have been waiting years for the release date of the third mainline entry in the series to arrive, and that moment is nearly here. If you're not familiar with the series, you might enjoy our Kingdom Hearts story primer, or everything you need to know about Kingdom Hearts 3. One notable thing that's emerged in the last few days is that the game's epilogue will be added after launch to avoid spoilers being leaked. And if you want to know how long it will take to see that epilogue, you can find out by taking a look at Kingdom Hearts 3's campaign length estimate. We awarded the game an 8/10 in our Kingdom Hearts 3 review, while critics across the board seem pretty positive about this concluding chapter. Read on below for a selection of other reviews or check out GameSpot sister site Metacritic for more, or head over to CNET for thoughts from a series newcomer." Now this is just an update but Game spot did a review was well on this game on this article so click the link bellow to view that but I know this game is gonna be fun. I love Kingdom Hearts as much as the next guy. But yeah I hope your excited like me. Click the link bellow if you want inside action and more links to read more about this up and coming game. LINK All Overwatch Skins In Lunar New Year 2019's Year Of The Pig Event Now for our final article for this weeks edition on Game news I have a good Incite information on how to get Skins for Overwatch one of the big tabled games. Now If your a big Overwatch player you might be ahead of me on this but this is a good thing for those who haven't checked the update info yet. Lets get right into the article, "Overwatch's latest event, the annual Lunar New Year celebration, is now live with the release of a new update on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This event is modeled after Chinese culture, with references to important historical or cultural figures. The newly dubbed "Year of the Pig" will last through February 8. The real star of any Overwatch event is the new cosmetic items, and this one is no different. The new skins largely pay homage to historical figures, especially Han dynasty generals: Lu Bu Reaper, Huang Zhong Hanzo, Guan Yu Reinhardt, and Zhang Fei Torbjorn. Others include Zhuge Liang Zenyatta and Hong Gildong Tracer, and the Epic skins Sanye Orisa and General Brigitte. Past Lunar New Year skins are available again, along with other cosmetics like emotes and sprays. This year's event also offers a festive take on the Busan map for a capture-the-flag mode.This all comes alongside new patch notes and balance changes. While not a huge update, it does make changes to multiple characters, providing a buff to Reaper's life steal and increasing the cool down on D.Va's Defense Matrix. Brigitte's Rally also has a new cap--it can now only last a maximum of 30 seconds. Blizzard says this is because, "Sometimes Rally could cause a snowballing effect, making it too difficult to deal with the increased health of Brigitte's allies before she built up another one." Now I have never got into Overwatch because I am not very good at shooting games but I have been told it is very fun so if you want these skins and want to look fancy go and grind out this patch so you can get the 2019 skins. LINK Roger Stone: Trump ally arrested on seven Mueller probe charges I have a big story for you all this edition its about the Twitter Fiend Mr. President of the USA Trump and guess who Russia. Lets get right into the article here's what it had to say, "Political strategist Roger Stone, a long-time ally of President Trump, has been arrested in Florida, charged with seven counts in the Mueller probe. Mr Stone will appear in court later in the city of Fort Lauderdale. The indictment includes one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness-tampering. The charges are linked to an alleged Russian-led hack into the emails of Democratic Party officials. The information contained in the emails was released by WikiLeaks during the 2016 US presidential election campaign. CNN reports that FBI agents arrested Mr Stone in a pre-dawn raid on Friday. One pounded on the door and said, "FBI... Open the door," the US outlet says. What links Stone to the email hack? Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign chairman John Podesta, who was targeted in the email hack, accused Mr Stone of knowing about it beforehand. More than a month before the emails were made public, Mr Stone tweeted it would soon be Mr Podesta's "time in a barrel", which some critics say was a reference to his prior knowledge of the hack. Mr Stone has denied having advanced knowledge of the hack and any knowing contact with Russian agents. On Friday, Mr Podesta referenced the cryptic tweet in a post about Mr Stone's indictment, noting it was "Roger's time in the barrel". According to investigators, Mr Stone said he had "communicated" with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange before the emails' release and had described the contact as "perfectly legal"." Now this is a lot to take in so let's do it together, Now our commander in chief if you live in the USA did a lot of stuff to put Hillary Clinton down the drain to get the votes. So I just am astounded on how this man is still alive regardless to how many people he pisses off daily. Now I may or might not like the guy but I don't stay in the loop but my family is furious with this man. I think he's big for the military but I don't listen to all the shady stuff that's going around about him. But man Give God a sniper I don't think trump would be smited yet even though many want him to be haha. Anyways there is still a good amount information on the article page so just click the link bellow. LINK US shutdown: Flights halted into New York airport Now for our second article for this edition I have more information that's going on in the States aka USA that happen to do with the huge city New York. Now if anyone is from New York I wish you the best at the moment if you want to fly out because the air port is completely shut down thanks to our government shut down. Anyways with out me spoiling the good stuff lets get right into the article, "Flights have been halted into New York's LaGuardia Airport due to shortages of air traffic control staff, the US Federal Aviation Administration says. A US government shutdown, the longest in history, has meant that controllers are currently working without pay. Flights were halted shortly before 10:00 local time (15:00 GMT). The move comes one day after a stark warning was issued by air industry unions about the risk to public safety. "In our risk averse industry, we cannot even calculate the level of risk currently at play, nor predict the point at which the entire system will break," Air traffic, pilot and flight attendant union leaders said in a statement.In total about 800,000 employees have been working without pay, or have been temporarily laid off, since areas of the federal government shut down due to lack of funding 35 days ago. Mr Trump has refused to approve any new funding agreement that does not include $5.7bn (£4.4bn) for his southern border wall. Democrats in Congress refuse to approve wall funding so the two sides are stuck at an impasse." Now this instance I know about is this people working for free until the USA President Gets his act together but he wants his wall. He wants to Build a Wall yes we know this since he started he goes Who will build a Wall I will etc. Well How many people are you gonna put out of a funding for there families and how will people feed there children who work for the government. Yes they will eventually get paid but still this is just silly.... Anyways If you want to see just how bad this effect is on the flight distribution is click the link below. LINK Facebook to integrate WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger Now for our final Article for this edition we have the social media power house Facebook wanting to integrate WhatsApp, Insta, and the FB Messenger. I think they are apart because people like that for a reason. But I am curious to what Facebook means by Integrate, lets get right into the article here's what it has to say, "Facebook plans to integrate its messaging services on Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. While all three will remain stand-alone apps, at a much deeper level they will be linked so messages can travel between the different services. Facebook told the BBC it was at the start of a "long process". The plan was first reported in the New York Times and is believed to be a personal project of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Once complete, the merger would mean that a Facebook user could communicate directly with someone who only has a WhatsApp account. This is currently impossible as the applications have no common core. The work to merge the three elements has already begun, reported the NYT, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 or early next year. Mr Zuckerberg is reportedly pushing the integration plan to make its trinity of services more useful and increase the amount of time people spend on them. By effectively joining all its users into one massive group Facebook could compete more effectively with Google's messaging services and Apple's iMessage, suggested Makena Kelly on tech news site The Verge. "We want to build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private," said Facebook in a statement. "We're working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks," it added. The statement said there was a lot of "discussion and debate" about how the system would eventually work." Now I get that Mark Zuckerberg wants to have more control I think and he is constantly growing his business so I think this is another plan to just have his grip on everything but this article also mentions like legit facts on how unsafe some of these apps have and Mr Zuckerberg wants to put a layer of security on its seems to protect its users. Well I don't know how this will play out but by the end of 2019 we will see what happens with these apps. Anyways there is plenty more facts and underlining info on this link bellow so please do check it out if your curious. LINK This week we have an interview with @Erza Justin Erza Who do you guys want to see be interviewed next? share your thoughts here. @Primativ News Team Leader Notable Threads @JaK Interviews @J W Kingsley Game News World News @Stoop Achievements Events Thanks for reading fellow Indovians!

Outcast: Second Contact is free to download for a few days For our first article for game news this week I have a cool announcement of a popular new game that you can download for free for a limited time its called Outcast. Lets see what this article has to say, "The Humble Store is in the midst of its big Fall Sale, and as it sometimes does it's got a free game up for grabs for the next couple of days. This time around it's Outcast: Second Contact, which is yours for the taking until 10 am Pacific on November 24. Released in 2017, Outcast: Second Contact is a remake of the 1999 Infogrames action-adventure about a US Navy SEAL named Cutter Slade (yes, seriously) who escorts a group of scientists to an alien world to help shut down a black hole that's threatening the Earth. Things very quickly go off the rails, as they do, and Cutter ends up in the midst of a civilization struggle that also somehow involves time travel. " Now this game seems pretty cool so I would jump on this free game offer for a limited time because of there black friday sale. Link Rico fights a tornado in a new Just Cause 4 trailer Now for our second article for this week for game news I have a bit of information for a new game that is coming out soon it is called Just Cause 4. Here is what the article has to say, "Just Cause 4" revels in action movie cliches, but the latest trailer for Rico’s next outing takes it to a new level. For two minutes, it unloads a messy spray of brilliantly bad one-liners and increasingly ridiculous action sequences. And then Rico fights a storm. There are few things I find as cathartic as blowing tyrannical dictatorships to smithereens, so I guess it’s a good thing that Just Cause is up to its old tricks. But this time the weather is really, really bad and, as Samuel discovered in his Just Cause 4 preview, you can also make tanks fly." Now you can make tanks fly?! What haha sounds interesting but go ahead and click the link bellow to check out the trailer and if you like this game and it does seem super cool stay tuned on the updates from pcgamer.com they usually get the news first. Link Civilization 6: Gathering Storm Expansion Coming Next Year Now the new game that is coming is to be Civilization 6 which will be here in in a few months. It sounds like it will be pretty fun here is what the article has to say, "Firaxis has announced its second major expansion to Civilization 6, called Gathering Storm. The name is apropos, as it will introduce a number of new environmental effects along with other new features like a world congress, power and renewable energy, and more. It will release on February 14, 2019 for $40 on PC. The announcement did not detail Switch or mobile release plans. The weather and power resources go hand-in-hand, as you'll be making choices that can impact the ecosystem and the fate of the planet. Natural disasters can wipe out your lands, but they could also enrich the land after they clear out. You'll be able to develop new advanced technologies and engineering projects, and negotiate plans with the world congress. Gathering Storm will also add eight more civs and nine more leaders, along with seven new wonders, and lots of buildings, districts, and so on." Now if you have played the other civilization games you know how fun they are so this should be looked for when it drops. Link France fuel protests: Police in Paris fire tear gas This week we have an article from France. I guess there was some type of riot or misunderstanding and the police had to use aggressive force tear gas. Lets see what this article had to say, "Police in Paris have used tear gas and water cannon to disperse protesters, in a second weekend of demonstrations sparked by rising fuel prices. Violence erupted on the Champs-Elysées as protesters tried to get through a security cordon around sensitive sites. About 5,000 protesters had converged on the avenue. At least 18 people were arrested after clashing with police. Organizers of the "yellow jacket" movement billed the latest protests as "act two" in their rolling campaign. Named after their distinctive high-visibility attire, the protesters oppose an increase in fuel duty on diesel. Demonstrators on the Champs-Elysées came up against metal barriers and a police-enforced perimeter that stopped them reaching key buildings such as the prime minister's official residence." I know I can kind of understand why these people were upset about the gas prices because I know in the USA a few years back when gas was so expensive so many people were upset. Now there is a video that you can watch of the protest if your interested just click the link below. Link US migrant held after leaving church where he sought sanctuary For our second article for this week we have an interesting incident in the USA about a migrant that had to seek sanctuary after leaving church weird right? Lets see what this article has to say, " An undocumented migrant has been detained after leaving a US church where he had been living in sanctuary for nearly a year. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, reportedly left the North Carolina church to give fingerprints as part of an application to stay in the state with his family. But when he arrived for the meeting, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials detained him. ICE officials generally avoid making arrests in locations like churches. Demonstrators tried to stop the officers from taking Mr Oliver-Bruno away, but were themselves detained. Police arrested 27 people - including a pastor at the church and Mr Oliver-Bruno's son, Daniel - after they refused to let the car carrying the 47 year old leave." Now this man was so saint he was hiding in a church so he wasn't arrested and he hid there for a whole year before the authorities were able to get him. I say good we don't need criminals running around the USA. Link Banksy art works seized in Belgium over lack of insurance Now for our final article for world news we have an interesting article about art that was seized over lack of insurance which I don't fully understand what that means so let's find out together. Here's what this article has to say, "Art works by street artist Banksy have been seized by Belgian authorities after an exhibitor showing them realized they might not be insured. Some 58 pieces worth millions of euros had gone on display in an empty supermarket space in Brussels. The exhibitor told the authorities the works might not be covered in case of damage or theft, their lawyer said. The move comes amid a rights dispute between Banksy's former agent and a German firm over the works. The display, Banksy Unauthorized, is said to have been put together without the artist's involvement and was being shown by Belgian exhibitor Strokar. The works, worth €15m (£12m), were seized late on Thursday and include paintings, photos and silkscreens in a collection put together by Banksy's former agent, Steve Lazarides. Among the works being shown was a version of the famous image Girl With Balloon, A German-based firm, On Entertainment, acting as an intermediary, invited Strokar to exhibit the works in the Belgian capital, Strokar's lawyer Stanislas Eskenazi told the AFP news agency. The firm said it had the rights and permits to show the works, but it was not clear under what conditions those rights were granted or whether the works were insured, he added. After lawyers for Mr Lazarides alleged the works were being displayed illegally, and amid the doubts whether they were insured, Mr Eskenazi said his clients opted to leave it to the courts to rule on the dispute between Mr Lazarides and On Entertainment." Well I guess if your display art illegally its wrong so that's why they were seized for lack of insurance. Link This week we have an interview with the great Global Moderator himself.

Here's what you can buy with Fallout 76's micro-transaction currency, Atoms Hello Everyone welcome to gaming news this week. For our first article I have some information for you about the popular game Fallout 76. I guess they have made it so that you can use micro-transactions so get interesting items in game. Here is what this article has to say, "Atoms are Fallout 76's micro-transaction currency, earned by completing challenges. The delivery of Atoms begins almost immediately with simple challenges like killing your first creature or picking your first lock, and it continues to trickle in as you fight and forage your way through Fallout 76. You'll be able to purchase Atoms with real money as well. After four hours of the PC beta on Tuesday, I'd earned 320 Atoms and had a look through the Atomic Shop where you can spend this virtual currency. What's for sale? Mostly cosmetic items: outfits, hats, poses for photo mode, alternate skins for your Pip-Boy and a few camp items, and a couple emotes that might come in handy, such as expressing that you're hungry or thirsty to other players). There are also a number of icons to use in your social profile." Now it seems you can grind to get these atoms in game but as this one person said in the article it took him a few hours and he only got 320 atoms. So I guess if your a hard core player you can grind them out or if your lazy just spend real world money. Anyways there is tons of pictures on this articles websites to show you what some of the stuff you can buy with these atoms so go ahead and check it out by clicking the link below. Link Game site pays £1 million to charities to 'apologize' for Red Dead Redemption 2 leaks Now for our second article I'm sure most of you know that the new game Red Dead Redemption 2 has come out but I guess some gaming site released to many sneak peaks of the game and are having to give away a million dollars to charities as an apology. Here's what the article has to say, "In February, Trusted Reviews published Red Dead Redemption 2 details from a leaked Rockstar document. Today, Variety reports that Trusted Reviews publisher TI Media has agreed to donate more than a million pounds to "unreservedly apologies" for the story. The money goes to charities chosen by Rockstar. A Take-Two statement to Variety says: "Take-Two takes security seriously and will take legal action against people or publications who leak confidential information." Because this situation involved information about Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar Games directed the settlement funds to these three great charities: the American Indian College Fund, the American Prairie Reserve, and the First Nations Development Institute." Now I guess its right that since the document got leaked that there was legal actions to pay so it makes sense but still a million dollars is a lot of money to just give back but oh well stuff happens. If you want to read more about the article it has a good bit more of information just click the link below. Link The new trailer for horror game Man of Medan reveals its spooky curator Now for are last article is a bit spooky its about a horror game called Man of the Medan. We just passed haloween as well so that is kinda interesting that this article was made a little after our holiday has passed. Anyways heres what the article has to say, "I've played the demo for Supermassive's horror game Man of Medan a couple of times now. If you've heard of the PS4 game Until Dawn, it's a similar mix of attractive young people falling afoul of ancient spooky happenings while things jump out at you. Now there's a new trailer that shows off its Rod Serling-style narrator, as well a look at the game's boat-based horror. We first covered the Dark Pictures anthology back in August. Essentially conceived as a Black Mirror or Twilight Zone-style anthology of games that are about six hours in length, the first one is based on the SS Ourang Medan ghost ship legend. Four American tourists go looking for the wreckage, and what they actually find is disturbing, dangerous and supernatural, as is often the way with these things. Each game is filled with QTEs and choices, with branching outcomes. Like with Until Dawn, making the wrong call will result in characters dying in various gruesome ways." Now this game will be coming out sometime next year so its not too far away but if you like scary games this might be one you will have to check out. I my self am not good with scary stuff so this might not be for me but hey maybe some of you will like it. Anyways theres a bit more information on the article page if you want to read more. Link New Caledonia: French Pacific territory rejects independence Hello Everyone welcome to world news for this weeks edition. For our first article we have a French territory that is come to a vote some people believe they should get to leave the France territory and its kinda weird. Anyways here is what the article has to say, "Voters in the French Pacific territory of New Caledonia have rejected a bid for independence. Final results showed that 56.4% chose to remain part of France while 43.6% voted to leave - a tighter result than some polls had predicted. Turnout was about 81%. The vote was promised by a 1988 deal that put an end to a violent campaign for independence.President Emmanuel Macron said it showed "confidence in the French republic". "I have to tell you how proud I am that we have finally passed this historic step together," he added. New Caledonia has large deposits of nickel, a vital component in manufacturing electronics, and is seen by France as a strategic political and economic asset in the region." I guess the people of France are trying to become a type of different country apart from the big country we know as france. Its seems very weird to me but if this is what the people who live there want who can argue with them. If you wanna read more about the article just click the link below. Link Italy storms: Two families killed in Sicily house For our next article I have a story from Italy where I guess there was some pretty bad storms going around and it seems to have got some people killed. Mother Nature can be unpredictable some times. Here is what the article has to say, "Two families have been wiped out in Italy after a river burst its banks submerging their house in Sicily. Nine people died in the incident in Casteldaccia - from children aged one, three and 15 to their grandparents. Only three people who were outside the house at the time survived. Three other people died when their cars were swept away on the southern island. Days of heavy rain and winds have killed at least 17 other people in Italy, mainly in the north and west. Some of the worst damage was to roads around Belluno in the northern Veneto region, after days of storms had dislodged mud, rocks and water. Six regions remain under alert - from Veneto to Sicily and Sardinia in the south. The tragedy in Casteldaccia occurred overnight on Saturday." This is just tragic and no one could of expected this to happen. My heart goes out to these family's who have been lost lets all pray for family members who are left alive.

Link French poet Baudelaire suicide letter fetches €234,000 at auction Now for our last article for this week I have an interesting history item that was sold at an auction. Seems to be from a french poet. Now why people would pay so much for this letter mind boggles me. Anyways here's what this article has to say, "A letter by the French 19th Century poet Charles Baudelaire announcing he would kill himself has sold at auction for €234,000 (£204,00; $267,000). The note, dated 30 June 1845, was addressed to Baudelaire's lover Jeanne Duval. The poet, who was 24 years old at the time, attempted to commit suicide on the same day - but survived. The French auction website Osenat said the letter sold to a private buyer for three times the estimated price. In the letter, Baudelaire informed his mistress of his intention to take his own life. "By the time you receive this letter, I will be dead," it said. "I am killing myself because I can no longer live, or bear the burden of falling asleep and waking up again." Now it sucks that this man wanted to die and its terrible that back then there wasn't much people could do for people who felt that they wanted to leave this world. Anyways for this letter to sell for $267,000 is just crazy if you want to read more about this article just click the link below.

Fortnite 'Support-A-Creator' program lets fans donate to Fortnite content creators Now to kick off some Gaming News whats better to start out with than one of the most popular games called Fortnite. Now this really isn’t a big game update for the players but more of a helping hand to the content creators who help Fortnite with all its content and its graphics. They have now let you donate to these creators. Now I have mixed feelings about this but lets get into the article, “Epic has announced a new Fortnite limited time event that's quite a bit different from its previous limited time efforts. It's called the Support-A-Creator Event, and it enables players to throw a little money to their favorite content creators—streamers, video makers, cosplayers, artists, and so forth—when they spend V-bucks on in-game items. Beginning with the Fortnite update coming next week and running until the end of the year, a "Support a Creator" tab will appear in the Battle Royale Item Shop or the Save the World Loot tab. From that, players can enter the Epic tag of whichever Creator they want to support. Creators will earn $5 (or the regional equivalent) for every 10,000 V-bucks spent in total by their supporters. “ Now this is a great update for creators and I think its great if you wanna support some of your favorite creators and they gotta make money some how but still I am a little annoyed about this because I find it to be silly. But oh well hush Kingsley its good for the creators. If you wanna read more about this article click the link below. link Bungie discusses the creation of Last Wish and Destiny 2's colossal raid boss Now To kick off our second article with another awesome game Destiny 2 and just wait for the name of the article Colossal Raid Boss Whattttt. Aye I find this to be super interesting and I do have a Destiny 2 game which I haven’t played in awhile but I could get into the gaming grind. Anyways with out further ado here is what the article has to say, “Bungie has peeled back the curtain on the creation of Destiny 2: Forsaken's raid, Last Wish. Over on our sister site GamesRadar+ Tim quizzed raid team lead Joe Blackburn about the raid's inception and the design of the awesomely huge final boss. "Riven was more of a response from when we made Oryx," Blackburn says. "Players felt like they didn’t have much interaction with this giant creature. So we were like “OK, we need to put the players really close and then we need to have the monster interact and not feel like it’s sort of a puppet on a train ride." We tried to do as much as possible to make Riven feel alive and massive but also having her own will." Blackburn also discusses the way Bungie thinks about encounter design at the conceptual stage "We have a series of very early meetings where we take everyone involved in raids, put them in a room, and start coming up with what we call experience statements. “ Now this will be a great addition to the Destiny game and I can’t wait. There isn’t much for me to say besides Come On Baby Bring It. Haha anyways heres the article link if you wanna read more just click below. link Black Ops 4's battle royale mode will be capped at 120 fps at launch Now If your remember our last News Gaming Section from last 2 weeks ago I did mention how Black Ops 4 was thinking of making a battle royal instance in there game and they released the map of it and that’s what I had to show you two weeks ago. Well now that have seemed to get everything ready and have set what FPS they will launch it at. Anyways with out further ado here is what the article has to say, “Activision said in August that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will support uncapped framerates on the PC. And it will—eventually. Treyarch explained in the Black Ops 4 subreddit today that the Blackout battle royale mode will actually be capped at 120 fps at launch, after which—if all goes well—the cap will be gently eased off. Activision said in August that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will support uncapped framerates on the PC. And it will—eventually. Treyarch explained in the Black Ops 4 subreddit today that the Blackout battle royale mode will actually be capped at 120 fps at launch, after which—if all goes well—the cap will be gently eased off.” Now I guess they did a lot of testing the the Beta mode for this game and had to calculate what would be the best fps for the game and well they have found it. If your looking forward to Black Ops 4 this will be an update you will be sure to enjoy. If you wanna read more about this article just click below. link Meng Hongwei: China confirms detention of Interpol chief This week for world news we are kicking it off with some information what China. Now we usually don’t here much from this country and they are very quiet but this big incident happened where this interpol chief was in some hot water. Here is what the article had to say, “China has confirmed it is holding the missing head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei. Beijing said he was under investigation by the country's anti-corruption body for unspecified breaches of the law. Mr Meng, also a vice-minister of public security in China, was reported missing after travelling from the city of Lyon in France, where Interpol is based, to China on 25 September. Interpol said it had received his resignation from the presidency on Sunday with immediate effect. China's National Supervision Commission, which handles corruption cases involving public servants, said Mr Meng was under investigation in a statement on its website. Mr Meng is the latest high-profile disappearance in China, where a number of top government officials, billionaires and even an A-list celebrity have vanished in recent months. Earlier this week, actress Fan Bingbing, who disappeared in China in July, emerged with a public apology and a fine of 883 million yuan ($129m; £98.9m) for tax evasion and other offences.” Now I guess if you are a corrupt person you end up getting your head chopped off by the Chinese government. There is more juicy information on this article if you wanna read more just click the link below. link Jamal Khashoggi: Turkey says journalist was murdered in Saudi consulate For out second article in world news this week we have an interesting disappearance of a journalist from Turkey. Now first this journalist was missing but some sad news was brought to the attention of the Turkish nationals and it looks like he is dead. Lets figure out why shall we? Here is what this article has to say, “Fears are growing over the missing Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, after Turkish officials said they believed he had been murdered. Mr Khashoggi, a Saudi national, was last seen visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Tuesday. A Turkish official told the BBC that initial investigations indicated he was murdered there. Saudi Arabia has denied the accusations, saying it is "working to search for him". Mr Khashoggi has contributed articles to the Washington Post's opinion section. The Post said it would be a "monstrous and unfathomable act" if he had been killed. An official of Turkey's ruling AK Party told broadcaster CNN Turk there was concrete evidence in the case, although none has yet been presented.” Now this murder seems mysterious and its like they want to say he is dead but is showing no evidence to this guys family or to anyone of the public. Who knows maybe this guy got some story of some bad bad people and they silenced him. We will never know but if you are curious to what more theory’s that this news article has click the link below. link Wedding limousine crash leaves 20 dead in New York State Now I know we just got off an article about a mysterious death but in the United States we have a tragic incidence where 20 people have died from what you ask a Wedding Limousine. Now I thought weddings are suppose to be a start of a new and happy life with your significant other but for this couple and there party and the outsiders who were hit ended there life short. Lets see what this article has to say, “Twenty people have been killed in a crash involving a limousine transporting a wedding party in the US state of New York, police say. State police said that two vehicles were involved in the crash on Saturday afternoon in the town of Schoharie. Eyewitnesses described seeing an SUV-style stretch limousine leave the road and plough into a crowd of pedestrians at a store near a busy intersection. The cause of the crash is unclear and an investigation is under way. Bill Waterson, who said he was invited to attend the wedding that the limousine was travelling from, said he could not believe what he had witnessed, describing it as "terrible", the Albany Times Union reported. A reporter for local news site Spectrum News, Mercedes Williams, tweeted images and footage from the scene of the incident, which took place near a store and cafe on routes 30 and 30A in Schoharie County. The images show a long line of emergency services vehicles lining the roads, which were closed to traffic.” Now as the news is they can’t report everything until they figure it out but for them to say they are unsure what caused the crash seems to be just ignorant. In my belief I would say it was a drunk driving or something but it could of not been anyways if your gonna party and get married in New York watch out.

Hands-on with Amazon's MMO New World, where hundreds of players war over a supernatural continent Now for our first gaming news article we have an interesting game from Amazon. It looks like they have created this awesome game called “New World” which is this massively online game where you pretty much craft, survive, and conquer. Anyways here is what this article has to say, “ New World is set in a mysterious, supernatural continent at the end of the 17th century. While the world contains creatures like bears and wolves, weirder enemies are waiting out there for you too. I didn't see any in my demo, but that's because we didn't reach nighttime. "They're actually pretty hardcore, so we steered you guys away from them," Gilmore says. "The day/night cycle is pretty important. What you didn't experience is actually being in the wild when night falls, and what happens when some supernatural beings come out." In my 15-20 minutes playing the game, I instead got to kill a few wolves, chop down a tree, then put on some armour and raid another clan's base. This demo is set in one small peninsula of what seems like a gigantic map. Scale, density and population are mentioned as the goals in building this environment.” Now this game sounds pretty fun. But I like those adventure games where you can go around stealing and destroying other peoples bases. Maybe I’m just evil, anyways go ahead and check out this game. link Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, a 'sort-of-prequel' to space combat sim Rebel Galaxy, out in 2019 For our second featured game is one that will be coming out early 2019. Its called Rebel Galaxy Outlaw now that’s a name! With out even knowing much about this game I have a feeling it is something I would like to get into for the main reason of Galaxy’s who doesn’t love space! Anyways here’s what this article has to say, “Outlaw, which will be out early next year, will stick you inside the cockpit (in contrast to Rebel Galaxy, which had a pulled-back camera), and you'll be completing various story and side missions that you pick up from seedy bars across the galaxy. You play young up-and-comer Juno Markev, who's not trying to save the world—she just wants to earn a few credits. She'll take on contracts, buy new ship parts, customise her craft and meet plenty of weird and wonderful characters.” Now it sounds interesting and there is like a preview of a video if you want to see what the game is about on the link I have for you below so if you wanna see that go right ahead and check it out. They got an hour long video for you there haha. link Black Ops 4 Battle Royale Blackout Map Revealed Now for our final game insider I have a big one for you guys. Black Ops 4! Now I think because of the fornite trend they ended up making a battle royale map and here in this article will give you all the goods and juicy information about that. Now with further a due heres the article, “Call of Duty has tweeted out a picture of what the Blackout map looks like. Blackout is the new battle royale mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Blackout is the largest battlefield in Call of Duty history, and is structured like a combination of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Erangel and Miramar maps. The northern and western regions are covered in forests, hills, bridges, and paved roads while the east and south are rugged desert. A snaking river divides the two regions, with a large lake at one end and an ocean on the other. Nuketown Island is the only landmass in the ocean, connected to the mainland via two bridges. Like PUBG, major landmarks and cities are prominently labeled on the map. It's at these locations that you'll probably find the best loot and other players. Collections of homes and small towns pepper the landscape between the major points. A vast majority of the larger landmarks appear on the forest half of the map, while most of the desert is dotted with singular buildings. You'll probably find better gear and more firefights in the north and west, while the east and south provide good places to hold out as other players kill one another.” Now Black Ops 4 launches on October 12th so keep an eye out for it and its coming out soon so you wont have to wait too long. I haven’t gotten into the newer black op games in awhile but I just might have to try this one haha. Anyways I hope you have enjoyed this weeks of game news. Stay tuned for next times article! link 9/11 attack: New York City subway station reopens after 17 years For our first topic we have a pretty interesting article about 9/11 about the subway that was damaged when that happened. Well it is up and running after 17 years! Here is what the article has to say, “A New York City subway station has reopened for the first time since it was destroyed 17 years ago in the 11 September 2001 terrorist attack. Cortlandt Street on the 1 line was buried under debris when the two World Trade Center towers collapsed after hijackers crashed planes into them. On Saturday, people were welcomed into the newly renamed WTC Cortlandt station as the first train rolled in at midday. Nearly 3,000 people died and thousands more were injured in the 2001 attack. WTC Cortlandt is more than a new subway station," said New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) chairman Joe Lhota in a statement. It is symbolic of New Yorkers' resolve in restoring and substantially improving the entire World Trade Center site. The new fully accessible station, which cost $181.8 million (£140.7 million) according to the New York Times, required an entirely new ceiling to be built and 365 metres (1,200 ft) of track to be replaced.” It’s a wonderful thing that they did to rebuild this it may have taken them awhile but I’m sure new Yorkers are glad to have it back up and running. link North Korea holds parade without ballistic missiles, reports say For our second article we have a parade in North Korea were they celebrated there 70th anniversary I guess since they have been in power. Now this parade was suppose to show there military power but I guess after there summit with Trump Mr. Kim decided not to show off with missiles. Anyways here is what the article had to say, “North Korea did not display any intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) at a military parade to mark its 70th anniversary, reports say. It is also unclear whether leader Kim Jong-un made a speech at the event. The parade is being scrutinised for clues about North Korea's weapons arsenal and professed commitment to denuclearisation. Some analysts had predicted that Mr Kim would tone down the display after his summit with US President Donald Trump. A large display of ICBMs - which can reach the US mainland, potentially carrying a nuclear warhead - would have been seen as provocative.” Now I feel as we keep the peace there will be no wars hopefully at long as the Korean Leader and Trump continue to have summits which are peaceful and then they don’t start anything silly. If you do have 40 seconds though please do watch the video of the parade just click on my link below it is pretty interesting. link Boris Johnson compares Chequers deal to 'suicide vest' Now for our third and final article I have some interesting stuff from the United Kingdom. Now this article is really just about politics, but I do find it interesting how they use there words around making things sound ten times worse and what not. Anyways here’s what this article had to say, “Boris Johnson has attacked Theresa's May's Brexit plan, saying she had "wrapped a suicide vest" around the British constitution and "handed the detonator" to Brussels. In the Mail on Sunday, the former foreign secretary said the Chequers deal was "feeble" and "pathetic". He has been strongly criticised by some Tories - one minister said it marked a "disgusting moment" in politics. And Home Secretary Sajid Javid called for "measured language" to be used. Writing in the same paper, the current Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt called for people to rally behind Mrs May, backing her to hold the line "in the face of intense pressure". In his article, Mr Johnson accused the EU of "bullying" the UK - but questioned why the response had been "so utterly feeble". He said that rather than getting a "generous free trade deal", Britain is saying, "yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir", to Brussels. "At every stage of the talks so far, Brussels gets what Brussels wants," wrote Mr Johnson. "It is a humiliation. We look like a seven-stone weakling being comically bent out of shape by a 500lb gorilla." He said the reason for the UK's response was the "insanity of the so-called backstop" - the commitment by the UK and the EU to come up with a solution to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland.” Now a 500lb gorilla sounds pretty harty to me haha. Anyways I guess there is a lot of tension going around with their political deals. But oh well they will survive heck we normies do it just fine. Anyways that’s All I have for you this week on world news.

Now this week for gaming news we have a few interesting topics to talk about, first lets talk about some upcoming changes with Fortnite! Fortnite Fortnite competitive features are coming this fall Now here this popular game has captured the attention of many gamers around the world. It is constantly evolving to make it better for its own community. Here is some interesting tips on what’s to come in the fall, “The latest Fortnite "State of Development" update is a big one, covering upcoming control changes (including input-based matchmaking), changes to building materials, performance improvements (with a particular focus on 50v50 gameplay), and more. But probably the most significant part of it is word that new competitive features are on the way and should start to roll out in the fall.” I my self haven’t gotten into Fortnite but I know some of you are probably looking forward to these updates. Game on! https://www.pcgamer.com/fortnite-competitive-features-are-coming-this-fall/ Onto another one of the big ones League of Legends. Now there hasn’t been any major game updates but I do have some juicy information for you about its up and coming tournament. League of Legends NA LCS by the numbers -- Summer Split playoffs I’m sure you guys are interested in your favorite teams that compete in League of Legends and hopefully your team may come out on top this time around. I know it is fun to watch the professionals play I have watched some of the big tournaments myself on twitch. Anyways here’s some information about the tournament, “The 2018 NA LCS Summer Split Playoffs feature the Summer Split's top six North American teams in a bracket-style, best-of-five competition. The winner of the tournament will be the Summer Split champion and auto-qualify in to the 2018 World Championship in October. The winner of the Summer Split Playoffs will automatically qualify for Worlds 2018. North America's second qualifying team will be based on Championship Points, which teams can earn based on their placement at this tournament. The final team is determined via a regional gauntlet, where the winner will head the Worlds.” World Cup of League is always a hot topic when it comes around. Anyways I hope you all stay excited for your favorite teams that are competing this time around. http://www.espn.com/esports/story/_/id/24464239/na-lcs-numbers-summer-split-playoffs Now for a update that’s coming to Destiny 2 as you all new the new DLC of Forsaken is coming out and I know some of you might be excited for that. Destiny 2 Destiny 2's Cayde Is At His Most Badass In New Forsaken DLC Trailer Now for a lot of you know what Cayde is not long for this world. It has been hinted and now even shown in the trailer but hey everyone has to have a good run some times. Lets raise a glass for our man Cyde and lets hope his end is damn beautiful. Here is what the article had to say, “Unless you've been avoiding any of the new story-centric trailers for Destiny 2's upcoming Forsaken DLC expansion, you know Cayde-6 is in a bad way. A new trailer for Forsaken that debuted at Gamescom 2018 has revealed exactly what precipitated our previous look at Cayde's apparent final moments. And if Destiny's most interesting character has to go out, at least he's doing so like a badass. We'll have to wait for Forsaken to find out exactly how things play out from here and if Bungie has some kind of swerve up its sleeve. The DLC will bring much more than just a possible conclusion to the tale of Cayde; this is the biggest expansion to date, appearing to be on par with the original Destiny's acclaimed Taken King DLC. It includes new superclasses and Supers, weapons and gear, locations, and more. Another big component of Forsaken is Gambit, a hybrid PvP/PvE mode that was revealed back at E3. Those eager to try it fortunately won't have to wait to do so, as a limited-time free trial will be held just ahead of Forsaken's launch. PS4, Xbox One, and PC players who own the game will be able to jump into Gambit on September 1 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST until the same time on September 2.” Good luck to everyone who is going to be playing this new DLC. I hope it meets your expectations. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/destiny-2s-cayde-is-at-his-most-badass-in-new-fors/1100-6461372/ I know I am looking forward to Destiny's expansion - @Primativ Hey everyone welcome to this weeks of world news. Nothing to exciting but we do have some juicy information. First lets start off with some USA disputes. North Korea visit: Trump calls off Pompeo's trip You all know of the summit that Trump the and the North Korea regime had and Trump said they would be go with efforts into denuclearizing which its just putting a stop to how many nuked they are making. Well it looks like that’s not going to plan because USA sectary will not be going to North Korea Trump canceled his flight due to problems. Here is what this article had to say,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will not be travelling to North Korea in the immediate future after Donald Trump asked him to call off a planned trip. The president tweeted that insufficient progress was being made in dismantling Pyongyang's nuclear programme. He also suggested China was not doing enough to put pressure on North Korea - due to trade tensions with the US. After his summit with the North Korean leader in June, Mr Trump said the country was no longer a nuclear threat. But since then there have been several reports that it is failing to dismantle nuclear facilities.” Anyways hopefully in the future after Trump pressures North Korea more maybe this nuclear problem will be settled but who knows. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45302865 US to cut $200m aid to Gaza and West Bank This also has to do with the United States. Now lots of countries like to help others with there aid and it usually is a good thing. But now as everyone gets to pick how it is spent it causes problems. Here is what this article has to say, “US President Donald Trump has ordered more than $200m (£155m) in economic aid which was to be allocated to Gaza and the West Bank be redirected elsewhere. A State Department official said the decision was made after a review "to ensure these funds are spent in accordance with US national interests". It has already withheld $65m from the UN relief agency for the Palestinians. Relations between the Palestinians and the US have been difficult since Mr Trump took power. They hit a low point after the US recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December 2017. As a result, the Palestinians said the US was unable to continue its mediation role in the peace process and suspended contact.” Now that Mr. Trump had decided to send our nations money else where this could cause other problems for these countries in need. Let’s pray nothing to crazy happens. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-45303989 Canada's 'most racist city' makes a comeback Now in this city of Canada called Winnipeg there is this sad story about a teenager who died her body was found in a river by the Bear Patrol which is a community look out group. Anyways here is what this story has to say, “Four years ago, the death of an indigenous teenager put Winnipeg on the map for all the wrong reasons. But instead of hiding in shame, the city - buoyed by its indigenous organizations - became a leader of Canada's reconciliation movement. That sense of family seemed impossibly broken in 2014, when the body of Tina Fontaine, a 15-year-old girl from Sagkeeng First Nation, was found in Winnipeg's Red River. Fontaine's death sparked a national outcry for missing and murdered indigenous women, and placed Winnipeg as ground zero for the crisis, with national magazine Maclean's dubbing it "Canada's most racist city".Home to the country's largest urban indigenous population, Winnipeg has about 95,000 indigenous residents or 12% of the city's overall population. Like in the rest of Canada, indigenous Winnipeggers are more likely to face poverty and homelessness, and more likely to interact with correctional or child and family services than their non-indigenous neighbours. The article was terrible timing for the city's Mayor Brian Bowman, who was elected just a year before. Although some suggested he should ignore the article or attack it publicly, Bowman said he felt he had to respond to the truths behind the criticism.” There have been other tragic deaths but with this cities effort to make justice for all the families and they have made a huge come back and have made organizations to help protect this community and make this city of Winnipeg a better place. Good job Canada!
