I believe some people create and publish websites for the sole purpose of tormenting their visitors.

Joe Biden released a video Wednesday evening marking the US death toll passing 100,000, saying, ‚ÄúTo all of you hurting so badly, Im so sorry for your loss‚ÄĚ and This nation grieves with you.
In the video, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee directly addresses those who have lost relatives and friends. Evoking the personal tragedies he‚Äôs faced in his own life, Biden said, ‚ÄúI think I know what you‚Äôre feeling.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou feel like you‚Äôre being sucked into a black hole in the middle of your chest, said Biden, who lost his first wife and young daughter in a 1972 car crash and an adult son to cancer in 2015. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs suffocating.‚ÄĚ
There are moments in our history so grim, so heart-rending, that they're forever fixed in each of our hearts as shared grief. Today is one of those moments. 100,000 lives have now been lost to this virus.
More than 60 Conservative MPs have continued to defy Boris Johnson‚Äôs calls to ‚Äúmove on‚ÄĚ from the Dominic Cummings crisis as a senior minister broke ranks to accuse the aide of inconsistencies in his account of his behaviour during lockdown.
The intervention of Penny Mordaunt deepened the turmoil within government following revelations by the Guardian and Daily Mirror that Cummings had travelled 260 miles to his family estate in Durham with his wife suffering coronavirus symptoms.
Emily Maitlis was replaced as host of Wednesday night‚Äôs episode of Newsnight by another member of the programme‚Äôs team after BBC bosses reprimanded her over a monologue in which she attacked the government‚Äôs handling of Dominic Cummings‚Äô lockdown trip to Durham.
News bosses at the corporation said the BBC2 programme‚Äôs lead presenter breached impartiality rules with her opening remarks on Tuesday night. She had been due to host the show on Wednesday night, but the Newsnight reporter Katie Razzall presented it instead.
France, Italy and Belgium have all taken steps against the use of hydroxychloroquine in treating patients with Covid-19 as safety concerns over the drug, touted by Donald Trump and Brazil‚Äôs president, Jair Bolsonaro, continue to grow.
Paris on Wednesday revoked a decree allowing doctors to use the drug with severely ill coronavirus patients, while the Italian and Belgian medicine agencies either suspended or warned against its use except in clinical trials.
US will end special trade relations with Hong Kong, which could seriously impact the territory‚Äôs economy
The US has announced it will no longer treat Hong Kong as autonomous for trade and economic purposes, as China prepares to impose a new security law that would drastically limit civil liberties in the territory.
The US decision could have a serious impact on the Hong Kong economy, which has been used by Beijing as a portal for dealings with the outside world ‚Äď particularly if its financial sector is hit by sanctions as a result of the move.
Beijing‚Äôs attempts to bring the territory to heel since handover have resulted in pushback and protest
Beijing‚Äôs rubber-stamp parliament is to vote to move forward with a national security law for Hong Kong, in an unprecedented push that many fear will result in silencing critics of the government in the territory.
The legislation, which would bypass the semi-autonomous territory‚Äôs legislature as well as widespread opposition to such measures, comes on Thursday after years of controversial government-proposed measures aimed at bringing Hong Kong more in line with Beijing‚Äôs wishes.
Police let teenager who ran away be taken back home by father despite her fears he would be violent
Iran‚Äôs president has called for swift action to outlaw so-called ‚Äúhonour killings‚ÄĚ after the death of a 14-year-old Iranian girl allegedly at the hands of her father prompted a nationwide outcry.
Hassan Rouhani urged his cabinet to act after Romina Ashrafi was allegedly killed by her father for running away with her boyfriend, 34-year-old Bahamn Khavari, in Talesh, 320km (198 miles) north-west of Tehran.
The first crewed flight from US soil since 2011 was called off 16 minutes before lift off; the next opportunity is on Saturday
The United States‚Äô long-anticipated return to human spaceflight will have to wait a few more days after poor weather forced mission managers to scrub Wednesday‚Äôs planned launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Florida.
The first crewed flight from US soil since 2011 was called off 16min 53sec before the scheduled 4.33pm lift-off time, with SpaceX and Nasa officials blaming ‚Äústrength of electric fields in the atmosphere‚ÄĚ, translating to lightning near the launchpad.
Punishment of Sodelpa party for factional infighting leaves parliament with just three opposition members on the eve of a major budget debate
The political situation in Fiji, yet to fully recover from the effects of the 2006 coup, is in a tailspin once again following the suspension of the main opposition party this week.
The suspension of the Social Democratic Liberal party (Sodelpa) by Fiji‚Äôs Registrar of Political Parties on Tuesday leaves parliament with just three opposition members (from the much smaller National Federation party) on the eve of a major national budget debate.
Pristine ‚Äėarchaeological treasure‚Äô near Verona may date to 3rd century AD, say experts
A perfectly preserved ancient Roman mosaic floor has been discovered near the northern Italian city of Verona.
Archaeologists were astonished by the find as it came almost a century after the remains of a villa, believed to date to the 3rd century AD, were unearthed in a hilly area above the town of Negrar di Valpolicella.
Partially redacted grant application shows scheme involved paying 10 groups to write songs promoting ‚Äėfreedom of expression‚Äô
The United States funded rock groups in Venezuela to record songs promoting democracy ‚Äď and undermine the rule of Hugo Ch√°vez ‚Äď according to documents released after a Freedom of Information Act request.
More than 10 bands were contracted in 2011 to produce new songs promoting freedom of expression in the oil-rich nation. The $22,970 scheme, which was to culminate in a battle-of-the-bands style concert, was approved by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a non-governmental agency responsible for promoting democracy abroad.
The Senakw development aims to ease the city‚Äôs chronic housing crisis ‚Äď and to challenge the mindset that indigeneity and urbanity are incompatible
The scrubby, vacant patch beneath the Burrard Street Bridge in Vancouver looks at first glance like a typical example of the type of derelict nook common to all cities: 11.7 acres of former railway lands, over which tens of thousands of people drive every day.
This is not any old swath of underused space, however. It‚Äôs one of Canada‚Äôs smallest First Nations reserves, where dozens of Squamish families once lived. The village was destroyed by provincial authorities more than a century ago.
Amazon have arrived in force in rapidly expanding Hyderabad, with designs on the currently almost non-existent Indian e-commence market
The futuristic lobby of the new Amazon building in Hyderabad feels as though it should have a permanent orchestra blasting out Also Sprach Zarathustra. The scale is intended to awe. A large slogan on a wall suggests the company is ‚ÄúDelivering smiles‚ÄĚ. The only sound that rises above the hush is a synthesised beep, coming from a giant screen playing a video of the campus at various stages of its construction.
Built on nine acres in this Indian city‚Äôs financial district, it is Amazon‚Äôs single largest building globally and the only Amazon-owned campus outside the US. It can house over 15,000 employees, but its size is its main architectural feature: it resembles the same cube of glass steel and chrome seen in corporate offices across Hyderabad, though a flash of magenta reflected in one of the top floor windows, from a billowing sari across the road, is a nice Indian touch.
Minibuses that run on Friday evenings and Saturdays buck state‚Äôs religious restrictions
Tel Aviv is one of Israel‚Äôs most dynamic cities, but the latest local craze could appear fairly humdrum to outsiders ‚Äď a bus service that runs at weekends.
Packed 19-seat minibuses fill up fast with passengers, who excitedly gossip about the new routes. People patiently queue at bus stops, knowing they might have to wait for two or three buses to pass before there is a space. Still, they are upbeat. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a pleasure,‚ÄĚ said Ben Uzan, a 30-year-old electronic engineer. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a blessed initiative.‚ÄĚ
The Garbage Cafe in Ambikapur, India, is helping to tackle the country‚Äôs plastic waste problem ‚Äď and their novel idea is catching on
On bad days, when his employer made some excuse for not paying him his paltry daily wage, Ram Yadav‚Äôs main meal used to be dry chapatis, with salt and raw onion for flavour. Sometimes he just went hungry. For a ragpicker like him, one of the thousands of Indians who make a living bringing in plastic waste for recycling, eating in a cafe or restaurant was the stuff of fairytales.
But last week, Yadav was sitting at a table at the Garbage Cafe in Ambikapur, in the state of Chhattisgarh, over a piping hot meal of dal, aloo gobi, poppadoms and rice. He earned the food in exchange for bringing in 1kg of plastic waste. ‚ÄúThe hot meal I get here lasts me all day. And it feels good to sit at a table like everyone else,‚ÄĚ he said.
Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich synthesizes legal information with first-person testimony of the billionaire‚Äôs abuse and bought immunity into a shocking watch
It‚Äôs difficult to watch Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, a four-hour Netflix series on the now-deceased convicted sex offender without a choking sense of outrage. How many girls had to suffer to get attention? How perversely twisted is the American justice system that a Gatsby-esque billionaire, friends with such powerful figures as Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Donald Trump, a longstanding donor to Harvard and MIT, could buy his way out of an almost certain life sentence for child sex abuse and trafficking?
Filthy Rich arrives, of course, less than a year after Epstein, 66, died, officially by suicide, in a New York jail last August. ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs no justice in this,‚ÄĚ Shawna Rivera, speaking publicly for the first time about Epstein‚Äôs alleged abuse starting when she was 14, says in the final episode. ‚ÄúThere was just so much more to be said that will never be said.‚ÄĚ
Lockdown rule-breakers are using the controversial actions of the prime minister‚Äôs top adviser, Dominic Cummings, as an excuse, a police and crime commissioner has warned.
The West Midlands PCC, David Jamieson, revealed he had received intelligence that officers are getting ‚Äúpushback‚ÄĚ from members of the public breaching Covid-19 containment measures after Downing Street‚Äôs defence of Cummings‚Äô 264-mile lockdown trip.
A loophole in government guidance has caused some of the country‚Äôs most vulnerable people to lose up to 60% of their income and is now forcing many to put their health at risk as lockdown comes to an end, one of the UK‚Äôs biggest charities has warned.
Footage surfaced as Minneapolis reels from killing of African American man George Floyd, which created a global outcry
A video of a man in Minneapolis questioning whether several young black men were entitled to be working out in the same gym has gone viral in the latest example of apparently racist behavior aimed at African Americans going about their every day lives.
The video ‚Äď which spread rapidly on social media after being posted on Instagram - appears to show local businessmen Tom Austin telling a group of young black men that he would call police inside the gym at the MozAic East building in Minneapolis.
Children fly kites between tents in the shadow of barbed wire fences as life continues in Europe‚Äôs largest refugee camp. There are 17,421 people living here in a space designed for just under 3,000. Residents carrying liquid soap and water barrels encourage everyone to wash their hands as they pass by, refugees and aid workers alike. While Moria remains untouched by the pandemic, the spectre of coronavirus still looms heavy.
Greece is poised to open up to tourism in the coming months and bars and restaurants are reopening this week. Movement restrictions were lifted for the general population on 4 May but have been extended for refugees living in all the island camps and a number of mainland camps until 7 June.
Amnesty International alleges that at least 10,000 died while being wrongly held ‚Äď some of them in a centre part funded by the UK
Widespread unlawful detention and torture by Nigerian security forces has aggravated the suffering of a generation of children and tens of thousands of people in north-east Nigeria, according to a new report.
At least 10,000 victims ‚Äď many of them children ‚Äď have died in military detention, among the many thousands more arrested during a decade-long conflict with jihadist groups, according to Amnesty International.
Police in Karachi last week allegedly shot at hundreds of unarmed garment workers protesting outside a factory supplying denim for global fashion brands.
Garment workers such as Abdul Basit, 35, claimed to have been charged by police with batons outside a factory which is reported to have fired more than 15,000 workers since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, according to Nasir Mansoor from the National Trade Union Federation. He said some workers had been terminated without written notice.
My colleague Mary Tiffen, the distinguished economic historian, who has died aged 88 from Covid-19, will best be remembered for the groundbreaking African drylands research she conducted from the 1970s to 2000, successfully demonstrating how much farmers‚Äô own skills and capacity to innovate had been undervalued.
Her 1976 monograph on Northern Nigeria, The Enterprising Peasant, the work she led on Kenya in 1994 (More People Less Erosion) and the final comparative studies she undertook around 2000 comparing dryland areas of Kenya, Senegal, Nigeria and Niger, all focused on the ingenuity of the farmers who made a living from these difficult environments. Her research challenged, and continues to challenge, careless assumptions about the causes of desertification and appropriate policy responses.
The ex-TalkTalk chief executive Dido Harding is facing one of the biggest moments in her eventful career, as she leads the government‚Äôs new track-and-trace programme upon which the country‚Äôs path out of lockdown depends.
Lady Harding, 52, the chair of NHS Improvement, was brought in to shoulder the responsibility of this significant new strategy, personally risking the fallout if it does not go to plan.
Many of us recognised ourselves in the PM‚Äôs cool response to an earthquake on live TV, but we do fear the ‚Äėbig one‚Äô
As I awoke to the bedroom shuddering and rattling around me on Monday morning, my first thought was a frantic household census, followed by the realisation that I was alone at home and not responsible for anyone‚Äôs safety but my own. My second, before my eyes had even properly unstuck themselves from sleep, was: ‚ÄúUgh, not this again.‚ÄĚ
Moments later, the earthquake ‚Äď a magnitude 5.9 shake that hit about an hour‚Äôs drive north of Wellington, New Zealand, where I live ‚Äď was subsiding. It rattled the lower part of the North Island for just 15 seconds or so, long enough for a little tendril of fear to uncurl ‚Äď would it build, or die away? Was this ‚Äúthe big one‚ÄĚ?
When France and Germany announced a plan to raise ‚ā¨500bn (¬£448bn) on financial markets to fund a European coronavirus recovery plan, leaders sought to underscore the magnitude of the moment.
The French president, Emmanuel Macron, hailed ‚Äúa real change of philosophy‚ÄĚ, with the plan for the European commission to borrow money on behalf of the entire EU and issue grants to the most stricken industries and regions. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, declared: ‚ÄúThe nation state has no future standing alone,‚ÄĚ and the German finance minister, Olaf Scholz, evoked the legacy of the US founding father Alexander Hamilton, who helped to transform the US into a true political unit with his scheme for the national government to take on debts accrued by individual states.
Mahmoud Abbas says all agreements with US and Israel are void but others call move a cry for help
It was a speech intended to define a new era. In a final, do-or-die attempt to block what appeared to be Israeli plans for a permanent land grab, the Palestinian president announced he would renege on decades of diplomacy.
From the 1990s-era Oslo accords ‚Äď the first steps of a peace process ‚Äď to deep security coordination between the Palestinian leadership, Israel and US intelligence agencies, all were now void, Mahmoud Abbas said in a late-night speech last week. He said the Palestinian leadership was ‚Äúabsolved, as of today, of all the agreements and understandings with the American and Israeli governments‚ÄĚ.
Police have clashed with protesters on the streets of Minneapolis amid outrage over the death of an unarmed black man in police custody. George Floyd died after an officer knelt on his neck for several minutes. Large crowds gathered in the city on Tuesday night and police in riot gear fired teargas and rubber bullets at demonstrators
Photographer Jordan Gale was curious to see how New Yorkers would adapt to a post Covid-19 summer. What he found was a combination of resilience, resourcefulness and joy ‚Äď exhibited through socially distant block parties, community service, and people from all walks of life soaking up the sun
Hundreds of protesters gathered on Tuesday evening to demand justice for George Floyd, an African American man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck as he lay on the ground during an arrest. Footage of the incident showed Floyd shouting ‚ÄėI cannot breathe‚Äô and ‚ÄėDon‚Äôt kill me‚Äô
As the US coronavirus death toll approached 100,000, Kayleigh McEnany praised Donald Trump‚Äôs response to the pandemic, saying the death toll could have been much higher. The White House press secretary repeatedly cited a scientific report suggesting up to 2.2 million Americans could die of coronavirus if the government didn‚Äôt take action to limit the spread of the virus
US president Donald Trump marked the Memorial Day weekend with visits to Arlington National Cemetery, Fort McHenry and his Trump National Golf Club. Trump delivered a speech at Fort McHenry thanking those serving in the military as the country battles the 'invisible enemy', Covid-19. The president also returned to the golf course for the first time since early March on the same weekend US coronavirus deaths closed in on 100,000
Joe Biden has made his first public appearance since March, emerging from isolation to lay a wreath to mark Memorial Day at a park in Delaware. "It feels good to be out of my house,‚ÄĚ the 77-year-old said. After abruptly cancelling a campaign rally in Cleveland on 10 March, Biden built a television studio in his home which he has used to appear on news programs and campaign fundraising events.
