Dispute after state authorised expropriation of farm Government has begun unilaterally expropriating farms against which land claims have been lodged and where price negotiations with owners have stalled.

Gordon Brown calls for global government to tackle coronavirus Gordon Brown has urged world leaders to create a temporary form of global government to tackle the twin medical and economic crises caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The former Labour prime minister, who was at the centre of the international efforts to tackle the impact of the near-meltdown of the banks in 2008, said there was a need for a taskforce involving world leaders, health experts and the heads of the international organisations that would have executive powers to coordinate the response. A virtual meeting of the G20 group of developed and developing countries, chaired by Saudi Arabia, will be held on Thursday, but Brown said it would have been preferable to have also included the UN security council. “This is not something that can be dealt with in one country,” he said. “There has to be a coordinated global response.” Brown said the current crisis was different to the one he was involved in.
China military develops robotic submarines to launch a new era of sea power China is developing large, smart and relatively low-cost unmanned submarines that can roam the world’s oceans to perform a wide range of missions, from reconnaissance to mine placement to even suicide attacks against enemy vessels, according to scientists involved in these artificial intelligence (AI) projects. The autonomous robotic submarines are expected to be deployed in the early 2020s. While not intended to entirely replace human-operated submarines, they will challenge the advantageous position established by Western naval powers after the second world war. The robotic subs are aimed particularly at the United States forces in strategic waters like the South China Sea and western Pacific Ocean, the researchers said.
New World Order Will Not Be Western-Oriented I ranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the international order has been experiencing a transition and will not be a Western-oriented anymore. “Throughout history, the old order has collapsed and been replaced with a new one after widespread bloodshed … The modern international order will not be totally Western anymore,” he said in a live Instagram conversation titled “the World in Transition” on Monday, IRNA reported. According to Zarif, the transition period kicked off around 30 years ago [after the Cold War] when “the bipolar regime which reigned in the world for several decades crumbled”. Since then, efforts continue to shape the new world order and have become more intense with the outbreak of the coronavirus, he added.

(SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO) The U.S. Media Yesterday Suffered its Most Humiliating Debacle in Ages: Now Refuses All Transparency Over What Happened Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time.

By the end of the day, it was clear that several of the nation’s largest and most influential news outlets had spread an explosive but completely false news story to millions of people, while refusing to provide any explanation of how it happened. The spectacle began on Friday morning at 11:00 am EST, when the Most Trusted Name in News™ spent 12 straight minutes on air flamboyantly hyping an exclusive bombshell report that seemed to prove that WikiLeaks, last September, had secretly offered the Trump campaign, even Donald Trump himself, special access to the DNC emails before they were published on the internet.

US military agency invests $100m in genetic extinction technologies A US military agency is investing $100m in genetic extinction technologies that could wipe out malarial mosquitoes, invasive rodents or other species, emails released under freedom of information rules show.
