Israel’s ambassador to US pans Germany’s idea of a UN-controlled Gaza

Israel’s ambassador to US pans Germany’s idea of a UN-controlled Gaza Israel’s ambassador to the United States is critical of Germany’s suggestion that the UN take control in Gaza, proposing instead that Israel control the Palestinian territory for an “undefined period of time.”“I’m not sure the UN model is the best model because we don’t have a good experience with UN mandated forces,” Herzog said on Wednesday in an interview with POLITICO’s Power Play podcast.“It’s highly political, we all understand that.” Israel retaliated with daily airstrikes and a ground operation in densely-populated Gaza after Hamas attacked Israel on October 7, killing 1,200 people. Israeli strikes have killed more than 11,000 Palestinians — including more than 4,500 children — and injuring tens of thousands of others, according to the Palestinian Authority. Israel also imposed a complete siege on Gaza in the days after October 7, strangling the territory and cutting off food, fuel, water and e...

Holiday slasher ‘Thanksgiving’ serves up killer spread

Published Wed, 21 Feb 2024 15:59:51 GMT

Holiday slasher ‘Thanksgiving’ serves up killer spread “Thanksgiving,” Eli Roth’s latest slasher film, begins with a convincing, tense Black Friday sequence.  Outside a Plymouth big box store, an unruly crowd grows restive.The security is minimal and obnoxious teens who are friends of the owners gain early access and pointedly flaunt their VIP status inside the glass-walled building.  Suddenly, all restraint snaps and the crowd storms the store. No one is thinking of the French storming the Bastille but the result is similar:  Dead bodies, injured patrons followed by a pathetic blame game.With this the most riveting sequence in the seasonally appropriate “Thanksgiving,” the saga jumps a year as another Black Friday looms and Plymouth citizens start dying — being exterminated in the most cruel and despicable ways imaginable.There’s a back story here – “Thanksgiving” has its origins in a mock trailer Roth made for the 2007 horror hit “Grindhouse” which had Quentin Tarantino’s instant classic about a killer stuntman “Death Proof” on ...

Well, director Lawrence is back (as well as series producer Nina Jacobson). But the cast of this latest effort is new.Englishman Tom Blyth of TV’s “Billy the Kid,” who, with his blonde ‘do, bears a resemblance to Irishman Peter O’Toole aka Lawrence of Arabia, plays Coriolanus “Coryo” Snow, the impoverished son of the late Capitol warrior Crassus Snow. “Coryo” lives in genteel poverty with his “Grandm’am” (Irish screen and stage legend Fionnula Flanagan) and cousin Tigris (Hunter Schafer, TV’s “Euphoria”).

How to grow your social network as you age Friends sitting around a table, talking and laughing. A touch on the arm, as one of them leans over to make a confiding comment. A round of hugs before walking out the door.For years, Carole Leskin, 78, enjoyed this close camaraderie with five women in Moorestown, New Jersey, a group that took classes together, gathered for lunch several times a week, celebrated holidays with one another, and socialized frequently at their local synagogue.Leskin was different from the other women — unmarried, living alone, several years younger — but they welcomed her warmly, and she basked in the feeling of belonging. Although she met people easily, Leskin had always been something of a loner and her intense involvement with this group was something new.Then, just before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, it was over. Within two years, Marlene died of cancer. Lena had a fatal heart attack. Elaine succumbed to injuries after a car accident. Margie died of sepsis after an infection. Ruth passed away after...
